The 7-inch Toshiba slate offers mediocre specs inside a basic build with little extra to sway your interest. With tablets in the same price range featuring higher resolution screens and smoother performance, the Excite 7 falls short of impressing, let alone exciting, any possible buyers.
When held in portrait-orientation, the Excite 7's speakers are located on the bottom edge, so when you hold the tablet in landscape mode, you're inevitably covering one of the speakers. Considering their audio quality, this might be a good thing.
The Excite 7's black-bezeled front features a straight edge, opposed to rounded, that slightly digs into your palms at certain angles. This can be uncomfortable if watching a movie or holding the tablet for a long time.
