Excerpt: Toshiba Excite 10 is a powerful Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 pixels touchscreen, quad-core 1.5GHz NVidia Tegra 3 processor, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, GPS, 16/32/64 GB of built-in storage that is further expandable with microSD memory cards.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: The most valuable feature of the Toshiba Excite 10 LE is its light and ultra thin body that features a stylish design. Overall the tablet delivers a good user experience, with a good quality display and regular performance. We have to keep in mind that it was introduced on the market a few months earlier than the fastest and newest Tegra 3- powered Android tablets launched in the past two months.
Conclusion: The Excite 10 is one of the most powerful and beautifully designed 10-inch tablets you can buy right now, but it can't match the iPad on features, and there are better values in the Android world.
Conclusion: Above all, we have to admit that we truly love the direction that Toshiba has gone with this tablet, as it seemingly obliterated all remnants of the Toshiba Thrive from last year that has floated around in our heads. Donning a vastly better looking design combined with some muscle flexing hardware specs, there’s enough to like about the $450 priced Toshiba Excite 10 .
Pros: Solid aluminum body, Fast quad-core processor
Cons: Bleeding around the sides of the display, Shoots terrible photos & videos
Conclusion: For those looking for a straight Android tablet rather than a convertible netbook style tablet, we can easily recommend the Toshiba Excite 10. It has the fastest CPU currently available in tablets and the latest OS. It's very fast and stable, and it's thin and light. As a premium product its materials and design stand ahead of the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 and Acer Iconia Tab A510.
Pros: Thin, light and premium materials. Fast quad core Tegra 3. USB Host, runs ICS.

Compare that to $449.99 (16GB), $529.99 (32GB), and $629.99 (64GB) of the Toshiba Excite 10 series and the difference in pricing is staggering. Between the two, we recommend Toshiba Excite 10 because of two things – hardware and pricing. The series offers more value for your money than Excite 10 LE. It’s the better choice for all-around functionality including gaming.
Toshiba Excite 10 LE review – should you go for this $529 Limited Edition slate?
9 May 2012
Conclusion: If you want the same slate with more powerful hardware, we recommend Toshiba Excite 10 instead. The 10.1-inch slate is now available in the US for $449.99. Unlike its Limited Edition version, the original Excite 10 has a quad-core Tegra 3 under the hood and 10 hours of battery life – sacrificing weight and dimensions in the process.
