Windows 8 10.1-inch UB-15MS10SA unbranded tablet review missing

We have given you opinions on a whole collection of budget Android tablets from brands such as RCA, Digiland and Nobis. Now though, it is time to look at a Windows 8-based tablet, with some details on the Windows 8 10.1-inch UB-15MS10SA unbranded tablet.

This model is unique in the fact that it doesn’t have a brand attached to it. Sometimes retailers who are looking to keep their product details hidden until purchase disclose the brand name, but in this case there doesn’t appear to be any manufacturer attached to the tablet.

That shouldn’t be a warning sign however, as we can see that the Windows 8 10.1-inch UB-15MS10SA specs are decent enough. It features a 10.1-inch WXGA TFT LED touch-screen display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, and a 1.33Ghz Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM on top.

There’s a 2MP camera on the rear, but also a surprise 2MP camera on the front as well – usually we would only see a low quality camera on the front of tablets, but not with this model.

We can confirm that this unbranded tablet has 32GB of storage which is great to see, but with the extra icing on the cake of expanding it further with MicroSD card support.

Finally, this Windows tablet also supports HDMI out, meaning that you can use all of your favorite apps and view pictures and videos on the TV which is always handy.

As you can see, these are very reasonable specs indeed for a tablet that has no official name. As far as we’re aware, it’s also a brand new tablet for 2014 which is only just hitting the shelves – meaning that you may find it difficult to locate a Windows 8 10.1-inch UB-15MS10SA unbranded tablet review.

Give us your thoughts on this model anyway. Are you interested in picking up a tablet which is Unbranded, with Windows 8, 10.1-inches, offers 32GB and comes in gray color? Give us your thoughts on this one below.

Does anyone know where to find cases for this tablet! Or a cross reference model?

So far, I hate this notebook. It might be the Windows 10 upgrade, but I can’t find any documentation for it. When I am presented with a log-in screen to some app (my local library, Netflix, etc.) when I click on the username field, I expect the keyboard to pop up so I can enter my name. Nope, doesn’t do it. Sure, I could connect it to the optional keyboard (which I have) but what good is that as far as having a notebook instead of a laptop? I would appreciate any suggestions. (I almost took a hammer to it.)

I purchased this tablet back at the end of Feb 2015. The beginning of the July 2015 it went off and will not come back on. I called the Unbranded tech support and they said it was still under warranty. They asked me for my receipt # and or cell/email so they can track my purchase from Best Buy. I was informed this product is sold exclusively to Best Buy .I told them I purchased this off Amazon. They told me to contact the person I bought it from and ask them to provide the information .Well after numerous e-mails… Read more »

I have an unbranded tablet from Best Buy and I am on my second one as having issues with the charging USB. It quit working on the first one and returned to Best Buy but within a few weeks the second ones is having the same problem won’t charge. Has anyone else had any problem with this? I have tried ever USB cord in our house and none of them will work to charge it. I am frustrated as it is great for everything I need but can’t get it to recharge.

I have one though I wish I didn’t. I returned the first one only days after I bought it because it stopped charging. I was given a new one by best buy and only days later it too didn’t work. However, in my frustration, after it stopped working AGAIN, I poked it too hard and it fell off my bed and the screen cracked. Now it won’t even turn on and I can never return it or get my money back. Don’t buy this model! It’s not worth the aggravation.

Does anyone know how to fix the audio on the 8.1? the speakers work great, but the headphone jack comes out with background noise louder than the person speaking. Does anyone know how to fix this, to where the sound is even and not so unbalanced, would really like to listen to my lectures and music with out any problems.

The review I wrote for the Best Buy website: Pros: Cheap, no bloatware, and uses what little space it has better than a Dell Venue 8 Pro. Cons: CHEAP! Holding this thing the first thing you notice is the build quality is really below par. Details: On the unit I have the seams don’t match up, you can tell the whole back panel is shifted off to one side and slightly up. This creates jagged edges all around the device that make it uncomfortable to hold. The buttons also feel really cheap and move in ways they shouldn’t and feel… Read more »

They do realise the Company name is literally UnBranded (the tablet is an UnBranded 15MS).

This is my second tablet I have purchased and I’m impressed with it’s performance and capabilities. I plan on passing this on to my mother to replace a desktop computer since all she does is check her Hotmail account and play Solitaire.

I bought this tablet keyboard bundle the day after Christmas. Its been a pretty good buy so far. You can’t beat the price especially since it came with a keyboard and 2 gigs of ram. My only really cons are with the sound and audio jack. The sound isn’t really bad just not super loud and you have to use head phones that don’t have volume buttons on them or it won’t work right.

Anyone know if this is considered OTG compatibld? Trying to plug a combo camera card reader into it.

I returned it. Was not able to connect my iPad to it.
Would have kept it.

I bought this last minute opened it up turned it on and I was already impressed with its quickness. I rapidly installed a ton of apps and full software like Reason 5.0, teamviewer, digital watchdog and a ton of others. All worked perfectly except two! Office 365 still failing to complete a background process to install. Microsoft knows of this and its a run around to fix it. 2 cakewalk sonar the tablet only has .net framework 4.0, Now before you say anything I looked and the box for .net 3.5 and below is unchecked when I check the box… Read more »

I bought this as part os a Tablet Essentials bundle today at best buy and it seems to work great.

The included keyboard has a usb 2.0 port that doesn’t seem to be compatible with my idevices.

Tried iPhone 5, iPad mini 2, and iPad air, still no luck.

I did install iTunes, but it does not see the attached hardware.

Anyone else have that problem?

I have gone through 2 of these tablets and maybe a 3rd based on the following: 1) Problems with Office 365 installation–finally chatted with Microsoft Office Support and they had to remote into my tablet–took hours for them to finally tweak the registry so I could finish the activation (turning off print spooler did not help the stall at 88%) 2) Keyboard inactivity–finally found a fix online to press and hold Fn and Caps lock for 10 seconds–that reactivated the keyboard–which worked to sign in and touch pad worked, but nothing else. 3) GPS–seems it is not recognizable by MS… Read more »

I found the deal too intriguing to pass up. I bought one for $149 before the sale ended (now $199). Here are my notes so far: Stock Windows 8.1 + Office -> no bloatware! Office 365 installer is broken (MS issue) – big headache to install Decent display; color is a bit flat at low power; may need some minor calibration – typical for class, but not in the same league as MS Surface, iPad Retina, Galaxy S, etc. Faster “F” processor, 2GB RAM, GPS, metal back – vs. similar Asus and Toshiba items (T100, Encore 2) Battery life seems… Read more »

I did not know about this tablet until I saw it at Best Buy on Nov. 28 for $149. I bought the bare tablet because I already have an Asus 11.6-inch Win 8.1 notebook and figured a 10.1 unit with keyboard would be redundant. Understand that I have had the tablet only a few days, so this is a first-impressions review. Out of the box I saw 25GB of storage remaining, not bad I think. I have not yet activated the included full version (not trial) of MS Office 365 because I don’t anticipate using the tablet for real work.… Read more »

Seems like an interesting tablet, I may consider having some sort of on the go internet plan for like $10 see how much of the data t hat I would burn through. I know I can stream games to it from my PC off of Steam. Planning on getting a Micro USB to Female USB jack so I can plug in a Xbox 360 controller to it and also getting the gadgets so I can hook it up to a TV :). Haven’t played with the audio jack yet but probably driver issues if it has static.

I’m having issues with the headphone jack. When you plug it in all the way the sound becomes distorted. You have to play with it until the sounds becomes okay on both sides!

Bought one too. I am love with it for the price. Would like to find a nice fitted case for it instead of the generic ones though. Screen is a tiny bit grainy compared to my high res Android Tablets but overall… This is a KILLER deal! I took back my Dell Venue 8 Pro, saved $50.00 and got, IMHO, a better device.

Bought one this morning from best buy for 149$. So far I am impressed! Came with office 365 personal which didn’t load completely on the tablet but loaded on my window desktop fine, so that was a 69$ bonus. Netflix works great and. I loaded libra office on the tablet with no problem. Sound sorta sucks but that’s what headphones or external speakers ar for. Very responsive display.

purchased one at Best buy and my wife loves it. I am the geek in the house and appreciate the specs. No limitations on the micro Sd as is common on cheaper machines. We also have windows phones so it’s a natural fit and all is well 😊. Know more 6 months from now. $200 including keyboard which has USB 3.0 support
