Lenovo IdeaTab A2109

The Good The Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 sports a snappy quad-core CPU, features expandable storage and an HDMI output, and is reasonably priced at $300.

The Bad The IdeaTab A2109's display is unimpressive, it has a bulky build, and it has disappointing video recording quality.

The Bottom Line Despite having a decent price tag and zippy processor, the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109's screen is just too drab to consider.

A swift tablet with a bummer screen

First unveiled during IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, the IdeaTab A2109 is one of tworecently released Android 4.0 tablets from Lenovo.

Currently, it's available at Best Buy for about $300, but despite its inexpensive retail value and zippy quad-core processor, the device isn't up to par compared with other tablets within the same price bracket.

For starters, its screen quality is ho-hum, its rear-facing camera is mediocre at best, and while the build itself is sturdy, it has a bulky build. These setbacks don't make up for the A2109's speedy experience, and they're what keep this tablet from being a real winner.
