Summary: Inexpensive remake. Between the release of the Toshiba AT300 and AT300SE there were just a few months. This can also be seen in the comparison of the technical specifications of the two devices; the main specifications are almost identical.
Pros: Very bright display, High performance, Good speakers with settings, Long battery runtime, The performance of the Nvidia Tegra 3 is always sufficient and the temperature development of the tablet is very balanced.
Cons: Weak camera, High weight, Limited scope of delivery, The main camera with its 3.0 MP is a bit meager as well as the scope of delivery. There would be enough space in the box for more accessories.
Conclusion: And that pretty much sums up the AT300 – it’s good at everything it does, with no major flaws to hold it back and great price in its favour. It won’t set the world alight, but it’ll prove a sound purchase all the same.
Toshiba AT300 – another Tegra-powered 10-inch slate on ICS?
25 May 2012
Conclusion: There’s nothing interesting going around with AT300 save for the dual SRS speakers. It’s latecomer in the pool of Tegra 3 powered slates running Ice Cream Sandwich. While Toshiba markets it as a media-centric device for watching movies, screen resolution is so-so due to the low pixel density.
Conclusion: The Toshiba AT300 is a very decent tablet, with a good quality screen, speedy quad-core processor and even an okay camera, all for about the same price as the iPad 2. But next to Google's Nexus 7 tablet, which loses a couple of inches off the screen, but also over a £100 off the price tag, it looks...
Conclusion: When we opened the box, we felt a sense of relief. We could tell instantly that the build quality and design has improved over the previous models. The 300 is quite a flat device, so there's a uniformity to the cover that we find pleasing.
Pros: Stylish, good battery life, nice to use, minimal customisations by Toshiba
Cons: Not great for media playback - Samsung rules here, still arguably too expensive
Summary: The Toshiba AT300 proves itself a capable device that offers enough power from its quad-core processor tablet for games and app fans. The screen is responsive, and its blandness is given a boost by Resolution+
