The Toshiba Excite Pro's looks probably won't offend (pictures)

The Toshiba Excite Pro has a functional look that won't exactly turn heads.

Problems

I'd be a lot more forgiving to the Toshiba Excite Pro if it didn't cost $500. At that price, its performance issues are pretty unforgivable and I'd caution anyone thinking of buying one to hold off until Toshiba addresses its problems.

Not exactly thin

The Excite Pro isn't what you'd call a thin tablet, but its not altogether fat or heavy, either.

The trinity

The holy trinity of tablet ports: microSD, Micro-HDMI, and Micro-USB.

Fast games

Thanks to its Tegra 4, games run great on the Excite Pro, but come nowhere near the performance of the Nvidia Shield.

Texture

The textured back does little to improve the tablet's grip, but makes it feel a bit more durable than without it. Probably.

Sharp camera

The 8-megapixel back camera is a rare pleasant surprise among most tablet cameras. It takes sharp, colorful pics.

Volume

The Harman Kardon speakers get loud. Really loud, but still exude a bit too much tinny-ness for my ears.
