The Voyo VBook i5 and Vbook i7 are Surface Pro style 2-in1 tablets that just recently released in China. The Vbook’s key drawcard is a fully laminated 3:2 aspect ratio IPS/PLS screen, a very nice 2880 x 1920 @ 12.6-inches. That’s not far from the Surface Book’s 3000 x 2000 resolution. But the tablet also has decent connectivity 2 x USB 3.0 (one each side) Mini HDMI, USB 3.1 Type-C, MicroSD, D/C charging. It supports an optional pressure sensitive stylus with 1024 levels and a type-cover stylus keyboard.
Some more press images below thanks to Adskan who found the JD.com listing. This also shows the cooling system for the tablet will be one fan and transfer heat pipe. Some shots of the ports and the different colored keyboards are detailed.
What concerns me is Voyo’s quality in the past I’ve had some issues with rather poor builds, dull screens and other problems. But their Mini PC’s were fine. But we have some Chinese user reviews posted on JD.com to go by. They are very mixed, some saying it’s great and others with complaints of the screen not sitting flat and another of a rather noisy fan. One user, it seems their unit would not even power on! They seem to be the i7 7500U + 16GB models people are having the issues with, not the Vbook i5. The user’s reviews can been found here (bottom of the page) and future ones on the JD.com Voyo Vbook i5 listing.
I only saw those user feedbacks after I placed my order…Doh! Oh well, seems the stylus and keyboard are in stock they should ship soon, but my Vbook i5 is on backorder for now. I guess I’ll find out when mine arrives in a few weeks, fingers crossed it’s not a lemon. I hope Banggood’s post-sale checks at least ensure I get sent a good one. Since I used the slow free postage, it might take 2-3 weeks. So keep an eye out then for my first impressions of the Vbook i5.
