Tablet for Practiscore?

8 posts in this topic

Looking for an affordable tablet good of Practiscore use.  To be used outdoors.  Screen hopefully won't be too glary in sun.  Doesn't overheat too easily.  Somewhat tough enough to be carried in a range bag.  Good battery life.  Reliable.  Durable.  No problems with synching.  Etc.

 

What would you guys recommend?  What models have you guys used and how did it go?

 

Thanks.

The Fire tablets I think are $35. $25 around Christmas time.

Black Friday we got fire 7 tablets for about $25.  Work like a champ.

I use a Fire 5th gen. Got it to my house for $33. I'm happy with the performance. Reacts a lot faster than some tablets.

We have been using Practiscore since right after it's release. We started with an Ipad for a master device and several different android tablets and nooks (OMG the pain) as scoring devices. This year after a few problems with our older android devices, battery life was diminishing and we were having problems with syncing. We went ahead and bought 12 current generation Ipad mini's. What a difference! The scoring is lighting fast, the battery life is outstanding, and most importantly the syncing is seamless. My stats guy never has to interrupt the stage. He pulls into the bay with the router and can pull scores 30 seconds later. We will keep the older devices as backups giving us a pool of 30 devices to run a match if need be. But it will be a dire situation if we have to use anything buy an IoS device.

my club uses Nooks.  Seems to work well for being able to see the screen in bright sunlight.

Aren't the iPad's (mini's too) harder to see outside, especially when bright sun?
