    Review For K1 Ideapad, July 25, 2011
    By 
    dalyew

    This review is from: Lenovo K1 Ideapad 130422U 10.1-Inch Tablet (Black) (Personal Computers)

    Initially posted this review under the white K1 Amazon listed before but this is the unit that the review covered:

    Let me first say, I’m doing this review to help those people, like I was, who have been sitting on the fence waiting for a good option apart from the Ipad 2, so I apologize for the lengthy review.

    I do have access to an Ipad 2 (when my daughter is not hammering away at it) & I must say that I love it, but being an android phone user, could not get comfortable with the iTunes thingy & the plain old icons interface. However, for a not so technical user, I think the Ipad is the best Tablet choice out there.

    However, apart from liking what I had seen of the Android Honeycomb OS, I was also looking for an Android Tablet with connections (hdmi out, sd card slot, etc.) so that ruled out my early favorite, the Galaxy Tab 10.1. After looking & trying the rest I settled on either the Toshiba Thrive, which is fat, but really has a nice feel in your hands, & the Asus Transformer, which has a nice screen & that keyboard dock. Eventually ruled out the Thrive as I couldn’t get over the washed out graphics on the screen & the power problems in sleep mode. So it was the Asus….. until I stumbled on an article on the Lenovo Ideapad K1 which grabbed my attention the very night I was going to order the Asus here on Amazon. (Sorry Amazon!)I decided to check it out at Office Depot the next day as it was rumoured they had it on display but not stocked.

    Now, I usually buy all my big electronic purchases from Amazon but I couldn’t let this one pass since Office Depot only had one in stock. I’m not sure how they’ve had these tabs on sale for a few days now since Lenovo only officially launched this product Wednesday, but I went to look at a display unit I heard they had & boy, I liked what I saw.

    The Good:
    Firstly, the screen. It’s really nice. Just as good as the Ipad, IMO, but just below the Samsung. The screen has a sharpness to it that reminded me of the old Sony Wega TV’s….. nice.

    Looks! Kinda look like the Samsung Tab and I like the curved edges.

    Netflix!! What more can I say, apart from it runs flawlessly here.

    Apps! Apps already included on this Tablet would cost you extra dollars &, for what I need, is mostly ones I can really use, like Documents To Go, Print Share, etc. Not much of a gamer, but Angry Birds is preloaded along with some other neat looking games.

    Connections. Hooked the tab to my 50″ Plasma via the micro hdmi out (you will need to buy a micro hdmi cable here from Amazon) & it recognized it right away. My daughters played Angry Birds using the connection & now I’m not sure if they can go back playing it on their phones lol. I opened the micro SD slot but have not inserted a card as yet. However, trying to access this slot was something else till I finally read the manual & deduced (not exactly spelt out) that you need a small twisted paper clip to push in the hole beside the slot to push the slot cover open to reveal the drive.

    Honeycomb 3.1. Not unique to the Ideapad but it runs really nice on this tablet without too many glitches. I like the Lenovo unique small menu launcher on the desktop that seems to be the only tweak to Honeycomb that Lenovo did to this OS.

    Build. Definitely a solidly built unit. It’s Lenovo & although it’s my first from this brand, they’re usually known to build solid units. But the solidity comes at a price (see Cons below)

    Cons

    No good accessories. Normal for a new device. The Lenovo case was awful & def not worth the $35 being asked for it. Will wait for Amazon availability of cases for this Tab.

    Weight. Although it’s not much heavier than most tablets in unit measurement, it feels heavier. Maybe it’s the aluminum edges or the glass (IPS) screen but this is one of the heavier tablets I’ve felt. It’s not as heavy as the Xoom but still has that same feel of the Xoom, that feel of holding a cold metal tray in your hand. This doesn’t bother me as, same with the Ipad, I prefer having these tablets in a case anyway, for feel & security.

    Powering On. Noticed a couple times I’ve had to do a restart of the Ideapad to wake it up from sleep mode. Happened at least 4 times the first day of usage but it’s 3 days now & haven’t been happening since. I noticed when I added a secure login pattern, it hung on the startup screen the first couple times as well but seems to be working okay now.

    Headphone Jack Position. Small annoyance, but positioning it by the power connector, IMO, was not a good idea, but you can overcome this by turning the tab around so it positions the outlet to the top, but then you will have to get used to the volume up/down buttons are now on the opposite side.

    In summary, I waited a longtime for a good Ipad alternative & I’m pretty confident that I’ve found it in the Lenovo…

    Better tablet then reviews indicate., August 17, 2011

    Phil J “Phil” (Castle Rock, CO) –

    This review is from: Lenovo K1 Ideapad 130422U 10.1-Inch Tablet (Black) (Personal Computers)

    Ordered directly from Lenovo on 7/27/11 since I received a discounted price through my company. Shipped directly from China on 8/8/11 and received on 8/12/11. Been using it every day since for a couple of hours a day. K1 came with everything updated with all latest versions including Netflix. So far have had no issues which other reviews have pointed out including professional reviews found elsewhere on the net.
    1. Has not froze or crashed once.
    2. Have downloaded a couple of movies from Netflix and spent about 20 minutes watching without issues however never watched a complete movie.
    3. YouTube works fine with no buffering problems.
    4. Load times for surfing the net are slower than my PC’s however don’t think comparing a PC to a tablet is a fair comparison. Tablet to tablet makes sense which I haven’t done and the speed is not that bad.
    5. Don’t see a need for half the apps included but they can be deleted and each to their own.
    6. Screen sharpness is excellent.
    Based on the many negative reviews and my lack of any problems might very well have to do with the first lot of tablets which had to be shipped early in July to meet the late July first day of sale.
    I would recommend this tablet.

    Good for what a tablet is meant for, August 14, 2011

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Lenovo K1 Ideapad 130422U 10.1-Inch Tablet (Black) (Personal Computers)

    I wanted a tablet to read professional journals and preprints (like those on [...]) and to keep me entertained on flights. For the most part, the Ideapad K1 fits the bill.

    Right out of the box, most apps will work, including the documents reader. If you received one of the earlier shipped models, however, the promised Netflix app is missing, and many market apps will be unstable (I tried Google Sky). You need to perform an update which will provide Netflix and stability fixes (Google Sky works very well now).

    The included documents reader is a definite bonus for this tablet. For example, I’m able to read Office (Word, Excel, etc.) attachments on e-mail. I can download PDFs and read them comfortably. The PDF rendering speed is pretty zippy, fast enough that I’m not distracted by it while reading. For small-font, double-column text that’s popular in many professional journals, it’s easy to find a screen orientation and zoom level for comfortable reading. Panning around a zoomed-in PDF page is intuitive and smooth.

    The reception of the built-in wifi receiver is not as good as my laptop or IPhone. Typically, the signal strength on my Ideapad is 1 bar below my other devices. The signal strength icon is not just cosmetic; when the signal strength appears as 1 bar or below, web page loading and app downloads slow down considerably.

    I’ve also noticed that the wifi receiver can perform better or worse depending on the network. So far I’ve been connecting consistently with Wireless-G (802.11g). My Ideapad has played well with home and hotel networks, but it’s been hit-or-miss with airport networks. At one airport, my laptop performed fine with fast webpage loads, but the Ideapad struggled. At another airport, there was no discernible difference in performance between Ideapad and laptop.

    One attractive feature of the Ideapad is that it has hardware DRM capability, which means that (in principle) you can download rented movies to watch offline, say, on an airplane. However, I have yet to find an app that will actually allow you to cache movies for offline viewing. The included mSpot movies app appears to support only streaming, as does Netflix and movies on the Android Market (which you have to watch via YouTube). I’m hoping that offline movie capabilities will appear soon.

    It’s worth mentioning that the tablet has a built-in GPS and compass, so that augmented reality and navigation apps will work. The GPS capability is strangely missing from the product description on many sites.

    As is common for Android tablets, the Google mail and calendar integration is easy to set up.

    Overall, I’m very happy with the Ideapad, but then my expectations were minimal. I needed a good documents reader that could entertain me while traveling, and it’s almost there. The only feature I’m missing is the ability to cache rented films for offline viewing.
