Fast Android 3.1 tablet has full-size USB and HDMI ports and Tegra 2, but also extra bulk

Toshiba thrive review

Watching media on the Toshiba AT100 is not as enjoyable as it is on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 or the Apple iPad 2.

Its extra bulk, fuzzy and shiny screen means it ranks at the bottom of the Android tablet list for media consumption.

HD playback wasn't that great, either. We watched the movie Priest using the built-in media player app, but the movie paused a few times.

The Toshiba AT100 supports most common media formats for music and movies including MPEG-4, H.263, H.264, MP3, AAC, and WMA.

Toshiba includes SRS audio enhancement, but we found the audio playback to be just average. Sound seemed to emanate from the back of the tablet, which doesn't make any sense at all considering that the speakers are on the side of the tablet, below its screen.

For books, the Toshiba AT100 is OK. Screen glare is a major issue, but if you're in a bedroom or on the sofa reading with a lamp nearby (not blaring down on you), the screen works fine. Games ran smoothly – we tested Need for Speed: Shift, and the tilt features worked smoothly for controlling the car.
