Can get anything with terga 4 and 300+dpi in 10 inch display. Good value.
The downside is the above average weight and over sensitive touch screen.
When purchased on sale this tablet is a very good deal. If you are looking to do some reading, browsing or watching videos, this tablet is up to the task. The screen is very nice at 300 PPI and it shows when watching HD videos. The touchscreen is a bit sensitive but responsive. The speakers are good when in a quiet room. If you are purchasing this tablet when it is on sale, then scoop it up. It's one deal you do not want to miss!!!!
Wonderful tablet, plus Kobo reader for a lt less. Can't go wrong
I bought the Kobo ARC 10.1 for my wife as a Christmas present. When I was setting it up for her (gmail, Netflix, etc.) , I was quite impressed with the value of this tablet. Very good screen resolution and the processor speed was fine.
High definition videos stream perfectly, and the battery life is very good. You should get about 8 hours on a charge. The power button is a little cheap, and there is no expansion port for an SD card. Only issues I have found so far.
I liked it so much, I bought another one for myself!!
When it is on sale for about $...., it's value cannot be beat. It is a solid tablet with above average screen.
What more can be said about this lovely device.
The price is attractive however the battery life is not very long before you need to recharge.
Also after only 1 month of use we have issues with the browser not responding at times.
Therefore can't go beyond 2 stars for performance and overall due to the cheap price gave it 3 stars.
got this in Dec and have been impressed by it's performance vs $$$. nothing in the price range came close in specs. Battery last well.
Screen is visually good but not the most accurate for touching, sometimes have to zoom in to pick a particular link.
Feels good to hold but like most tablets the speakers are not very loud and they are on the back.
Not expecting any android updates but is the way it goes with off branded Android products.
Overall it was a great purchase.
Now one might think I am making this up but this is the best 10 inch tablet for any kind of user out there. The screen is sharp crisp and performance is well above the top of the line. The price or value is much lower than other competitors but the quality is THE BEST. Highly recommended.
I originally purchased the Kobo Arc 10 for a Christmas gift for my 84 year old mother. She absolutely loves it!! So, I then bought one for myself and one for my husband. Our neighbor also bought one. We are all very pleased with the Kobo, and are amazed at the quality and performance of the device. The screen is absolutely awesome! Incredible value for the price!
good tablet. fast processor to download apps. great quality for videos to watch. Cheap price to buy this item. I recommend this tablet to guys to purchase this product.
Excellent tablet not only for reading but also for web, skype, games, facebook, taking notes.
Battery life is incredibly decent for the price. you can get easily 6-7 hours of intensive use.
Bought twice and returned. Same issue very poor wifi reception. And yes I have a good router AC1900.
wow what a screen. holds 20 movies too
Fast processor and good screen. Slightly annoying kobo interface and tweaks
I bought this because I was looking for a full sized tablet for reading, email, and internet. You won't find another 10" tablet with similar feature at anywhere near the price of this one. The display is incredible. The combination of processor and RAM mean that apps run very smoothly. One problem created by the high definition processor -- there are a number of apps in the Google Play Store that appear as not compatible with this device because they weren't made for a 2560x1600 display. I have sideloaded several of them, however, and they all work without a hitch. My only complaint at this point is that the touchscreen is finicky. Putting your finger on the screen to scroll down the page or through a list or menu sometimes gets interpreted as a click instead of the start of scrolling. So I've ended up opening things or making selections that I didn't really intend. Apart from that, however, this is an excellent Android tablet. If you're looking at it primarily as an ereader, you won't have any problems.
We celebrated our Christmas with family on the 26th. I got my 84 year old mother this item and she absolutely loves it!! So, today I ordered 2 more for ourselves...the product quality and value is outstanding. Very easy to set up and the 10 in screen is excellent!
Excellent tablet. Poor update history. If Kobo fixes this tiny issue, it would be a 5-star device.
It is sometimes a bit slow and I find the controls tricky (but I'm new to tablet use) but it makes reading comics a pleasure! I use it for school mostly instead of caryying around a million printouts of slides and PP presentations and articles I carry one light, small tablet. I love it.
The uber-hi-def screen is a standout, rivaling Apple Retina and Samsung Amoled. It's almost shocking to find a screen of this quality on a tablet priced [on sale] at $199. Impressive processing power under the hood makes the Arc 10 quite fast. A bit heavy, a bit boxy, but the back is well-designed and actually pretty cool-looking with a grippy coating. Biggest downside is the 16 GB non-expandable storage, but it's not a deal-breaker especially for anyone who prefers keeping their stuff in a cloud. Bottom line: solid tablet overall, ridiculously awesome for the money. At [price] there is no tablet on the market that comes remotely close in value, period.
got one today with discount. it's fast, clear and good shape. Sound quality is acceptable. Brightness is not the best but more than enough. Kobo special pages can't be removed, no impact using though. This distinguish it a bit from Android tablet. It's listed in eReader category but actually standard Android. At about $200, you can't get any thing with 10inch 2550x1600 Tigra 4 in Android Tablet category. It's awesome price and performance. just a bit heavy comparably.
I bought it at a $100 discount. Its price will not be beaten by any tablet with 10HD 10.1" screen. It performs good, high quality. specific color. Its batery will last an hour and a half or so if performing high resolution videos. The only reason why not five stars is that it will make no response sometimes especially when the backgound hiding app is touched.
At first sight, the Kobo Arc 10HD makes a great impression with a big bright beautiful screen and some funky geometric industrial design on the back. Aside from the screen and some decent stereo speakers, it's a little light on hardware features by today's standards, with only one (front-facing) camera and no slot for memory expansion. However, for the price it's hard to complain: what you're getting in terms of processing power and the other basics is competitive with tablets costing twice as much. And it's Android so you know you will be supported by a gazillion apps if you want them.
Personally I bought this device primarily to read comics and graphic novels. It is pretty awesome for that purpose, able to display full pages at pretty much full size, with lots of contrast and saturated colours. My one complaint is the weight... but it's actually less than the pre-Air 1Pads, so it's still a fantastic value.
Oh one more thing you might want to consider: accessories for this device are hard to find and not great. There are no screen protectors that I have been able to find on sale in Canada, and the official Kobo case is overpriced and looks cheap and flimsy. They need to take a look at K1ndle's brilliant origami case.
Overall, highly recommended if screen size and price are important factors for you. Hope this helped!
Great display, high-quality sound (listening in a quiet room), and solid build for a 10" tablet at this price (much less than 1Pad). A little bulky, but the non-slip back makes it easier to hold than many other tablets. Should ship with an anti-glare screen protector, as the glossy screen, typical of these devices, makes it hard to read ebooks without somehow dealing with all the reflections. Processor seems really fast for web browsing and watching videos - it's a keeper!
I really like this device! I still have to play around with it a fair bit more to figure out all the things that it can do, but so far so good. The only thing is that the speakers don't seem very loud sometimes, but that may just be me...
