Reviews Word on the street for the Toshiba Excite 13

The Toshiba audio enhancements did make audio sound noticeably less muffled, but just as on the Excite 10, Ambient Noise Equalizer didn't seem to do very much.

The new Excite tablets find a much better middle ground, combining great internals and solid performance with up-to-date software, all in a body that looks and feels good.


6.9 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Its screen isn't great, and though its performance is solid it's equalled by devices like the Transformer Pad and Transformer Prime, both of which also offer the excellent keyboard dock.

The display has a resolution of 1,600x900 pixels, which makes watching videos that fit its 16:9 aspect ratio a real pleasure.

Images were crisp, colors were vibrant, and the viewing angle is pretty wide.

At the top center is a LED-flash supported 5-megapixel camera.

There is a nifty panorama mode, but it's only cool functionally; results are pretty unimpressive.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)
The camera quality was also perfectly adequate.

At just 7.6mm thick it's probably thinner than your phone, and it slides easily and unnoticed into a jacket pocket or a bag.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)
At 1.32 pounds it's also among the lightest, and between the two the device feels quite portable and is almost usable in a single hand.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)
They can be held with two hands, they don't have to be as easy to carry around as a phone, and they can be docked on a desk alongside an external keyboard.

Designing the perfect screen size for a tablet is a tricky endeavor.
by c|net (Jun, 2012)
It delivers similar specs, and yes, while it has 3 inches lopped off the display size, it has $200 chopped off the price, too.
by c|net (Jun, 2012)
Ultimately, only the individual customer knows what's good for him or her, and the ideal screen size depends on what the tablet is being used for.

Operating system

It's increasingly clear that the Android tablet market has figured out how to run the OS as well as it can be run.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)
As I mentioned, Android's software quirks are clearly the limiting factor in the performance of an Android tablet — the internals are plenty powerful at this point in the game.
by The Verge (Jun, 2012)
Toshiba does add SRS sound enhancements, but the software tweaks don't change much.
