Update: 10/5/15: The following has been updated to take into account of the new version featuring an IPS display.

All in all, the Flexx 8 makes for a decent budget tablet. Its price point is its main stand-out quality, being one of the very few full Windows tablets under $100,  as is its processor. As long as you get the newer version with the IPS screen, it should look pretty spiffy as well.

It’s a combination that makes for a solid workhorse, and a fairly expendable one at that. The Flexx 8 has solid specs otherwise and a bargain price. It’s the sort of device that you don’t need to think too carefully about taking into the field, handing off to the kids, or mounting in your car, because if its low replacement cost.

Think of it in those terms, and you’ll probably be more satisfied with purchasing one. Devices like the Flexx are a perfect example of “the right tool for the right job” being essential to a smart buying decision.

    I picked one of these up when Walmart had them on fire sale for $49.99. For $99.99 It’s a decent buy as you say. I will say that for $49.99, what’s to complain about?
