New Linx models

by ih8modem » November 20th, 2016, 3:02 pm

Will there be a new section for the new models such as the 10v64 / 12v32 / 12v64 ?

Does anyone know if these are supported in the same way as the current models? As previous owner of the 8 inch and original 10 inch I can say the new one's box is the same format etc.

I picked a 12v64 up this morning for my wife, she is loving it so far. It looks and to a degree feels like a Surface3. The kickstand is made of cheaper materials (and is quite sharp along the edge!). At £329 though, it is by no means in the cheap category that the other LINX tablets I bought previously (I was lucky to get both my 8 and 10 inch from the awesome staples deal 2 years back).

The specifications have been speculated on quite a bit as well. I can confirm that the 12v64 comes with 4GB RAM and a 64GB eMMC drive. It has only got a 2.4 GHz Wifi radio no 5GHz here :(. 1 x full size USB3.0 , 1 x Micro USB (2.0) and a micro HDMI 1.4 are found on the side. SDHC card slot is also present, no mention of SDXC. EDIT : It does support SDXC - right there on the box!

The included keyboard is pretty good, not as much flex as the one that I had for the 10 inch (the original origami keyboard) and the trackpad is pretty good too - a little noisy when you tap on it though.

I've noticed the 12v64 is in Sainbury's under their Black Friday sale for 229 pounds

At that price I descided to grab one. for use as a home broswer/webmail machine and general writing machine.

I am a table top and live action Roleplayer, so I want to read rules through .pdf files, write plot, journals, backgrounds, histories etc. I also need web/email capability, it is nice to play casual games/fan created games (for example via RPG maker, Scumm engine etc.)

It is Windows 10 Home 64 bit o/s.

I like...
- The keyboard size (the 1010 feels a little cramped)
- Screen size, great for reading .pdf manuals and other documents.
- The Extra Ram should see some performance improvement despite the architecture jump of the O/S (compared to the 1010)
- The USB 3 port will enable access to stored data faster be they on USB sticks or USB 3 capable external drives.

I do not like...
- only 1 full sized USB port, it really needs a 2nd for using an external mouse AND external storage at the same time. If this IS being touted as a general productivity machine, that really is a must (it does not have to be a USB 3 port, a lower standard will do fine). The 1010 got this right. Yes I suppose I can get a wireless mouse but then again, they normally need a USB port for the dongle.
- SD card slot, just a slot again, the 1010 models scored major points with me by having it under a cover so that handling the tablet did not catch and accidently pop out the SD card (while it is in use and therefore a potential for coruption of data) on the card.

Less serious but still an issue...
- The keyboard feel, seriously, Sinclair QL/Plus standard, possibly a little inferior to the 1010. the edge connector for it is different from the 1010
- Does not come with Windows Mobile, oh well, time to download an Open Office fork.

With that in mind it is an OK 2nd machine for on the move use, but not really a primary machine for the user that wants to browse the web, deal with email and do a lot of word processing/spreadsheets etc.

At the price, not bad, good bangs per buck, but you might be better looking elsewhere. For a user like me, a 1010 with keyboard might be a better bet. Looks like my old dual core laptop is not getting retired to become a retro game machine just yet.

Have you considered using a portable usb 3 hub (eg from Startech) to provide more ports?

Got a 12v64 in sainburies for £229. 4gb ram 64gb storage. Much more useable than the original linx 10 with only 2gb/32gb. almost a complete knock off of a surface pro 3.

problem i have is i wiped the device to reinstall windows 10, and after finding what i thought was the folder of drivers, i realise they are customer service test programs...

10v64 drivers from here seem to fill in most the blanks, but im missing the gpio buttons, sound and touchscreen.

anyone with a non mullered 12v64 want to export some drivers for me!?

Cheers!

Drivers for Linx 810B (might work on other Linx models)

by lakenjr » November 27th, 2016, 4:29 pm

I have no idea whether Linx 810B drivers will work on other Linx models. If you need some drivers, you might like to experiment with the Linx 810B drivers.

The TouchSetting files (for windows/INF) are definitely specific to the Linx 810B as they depend on screen size. However, you may still have the correct ones, or may be able to obtain them from elsewhere.

I have uploaded a complete set of drivers for Linx 810B to my GoogleDrive. See the AA README file in GoogleDrive for information

Yes, home use that would be the way to go.

Revewing my game notes from a USB memory stick and navigaiting them and the game rule books using a mouse at the same time (because glide pads never quite worked for me, and I need that scroll wheel for scrolling through the .pdf of the traveller rules) as I have my pre game dinner in the 'spoons however, will remain the work of my 1010b ;)

Still grumpy about the placement of the SD card slot, such a step back compared to the 1010 series.
