Test of hybrid PCI-E tuner BeholdTV T8 on site Reviews.ru!
"It's time to draw conclusion. I treat the new PCI-E tuner BeholdTV T8 to be logical development of Beholder product line, which thus far had only one PCI model with full support of major digital terrestrial broadcast standards. BeholdTV T8 is interesting not only by its miniature size, but also by extended functional support and excellent quality of analog television reception, which makes it very interesting from the pont of view of using it in compact Mini-ITX and HTPC computers".

Full review of hybrid TV-tuner Behold TV T7 with support of DVB-T/T2/C on site Reviews.ru!
"Finalizing the talk about possibilities of new hybrid TV-tuner Behold TV T7, I should note that this model came right at the time… What concerns tuner itself, to be more precise, production sample of Behold TV T7, it worth to mention that due to the fact that developers used classical hardware-software platform, new tuner allowed to get guaranteed high quality of reception of both digital and analog broadcast, which in conjunction with well developed features of application software, for sure allows us to call this model a leader on the market of hybrid TV-tuners with support of DVB-T/T2/C standards".

Review of hybrid TV-tuner Behold TV T7 on site F1CD.ru!
"…Overall this model represents praiseworthy sample of device that allows not only to view digital television in DVB-T/T2/C standards but also analog TV. In addition it worth to mention that it allows to listen to the radio – both FM and DVB – and supports capturing from external analog video sources. Low profile bracket and presence of connectors for both internal and external connection of IR-sensor for remote control makes Beholder Behold TV T7 a good candidate for installation to HTPC or even to ordinary PC, where it will suit for analog capture."

Review of TV tuner Behold TV T7 on site Reviews.ru!
"Actually, there is only one question remaining for me: how this tuner will work in my conditions, which I treat to be non-ideal for stable reception of DVB-T2 reception? Thus far I can tell that using well known, I must even say proven by time, hardware stuff and the best application software in the market, allowed to keep excellent quality, rich functionality and available price, giving us the possibility not only to touch the new generation of digital TV broadcasting, but also to be ready for full scale launch of digital broadcasting throughout the country".

Tablet PC Behold BeTAB 1042 – Android with Retina display. Review on site Hwp.ru!
"At the moment of writing this review the cost of Behold BeTAB 1042 was at the level of $360. Indeed, the user pays for good stuff (relatively powerful hardware, large accumulator capacity), and Retina display is for gift. Unbonnet in the presence of Beholder.

"…So far we have high quality 10" tablet PC with wonderful display and powerful hardware platform, capable of providing the work of almost any application on that resolution. All this is packed in high quality metal case, and at that time the tablet doesn't tend to discharge after 2-3 hours of Internet serfing.

"Beholder BeTAB 1041: excellent package" – note in the Chip magazine, December 2012.
"As a rule, inexpensive tablets use displays of poor quality. Beholder BeTAB breaks this rule. For reasonable price the user gets tablet… with high quality IPS display… Gadget consumes energy rather economically. So, after an hour and a half of viewing stream video, the indicator of accumulator charge shown 78%."

"Review of Behold BeTAB 7004, or impressions after a month of usage…" – review on site Reviews.ru!

Comparison of two tablets – BeTAB 7004 and 1041 on site Hwp.ru!
"Perhaps, this is my first article for many years, where I don't want (more precisely, I can't) to choose the winner. If at first it was easy enough to compare Behold BeTAB 7004 and 1041, then the more I tested both models, the more I understood that it is just impossible to choose "right" model. It is like comparison car with motorcycle. Yes, both of them are vehicles, but they are different per se, although both of them perform the same functions. But you'll not succeed making "right" choice, because everyone has its own understanding of "right". I must admit that, before this testing I was an adherent of 7-8" models. But once tested BeTAB 1041 as an outright 10" tablet (I'll not be afraid to call it "paragon" in its market price segment), I've got so deep doubts, that I don't know for sure what would I choose if I was faced such a choice. I hope if only readers will make that choice."

"So, as a result we have device with its strengths and drawbacks, and we can easily state that the former prevail over the latter. Of course, we can't treat cameras as an instrument for taking full value photograph, and the time of operation on accumulator is not outstanding, but good display, stable software, good set of interfaces and rather pleasant design cover these disadvantages. Also the price for Beholder BeTAB 7004 is more than democratic – about $170 in retail; for that you'll get certification, warranty, localized documentation and technical support."

"Beholder BeTAB 1041 – 9,7" tablet PC with IPS display and favorable price/quality ratio" – review on site ChekLab.ru!
"Tablet PC BeTAB 1041 made a good impression to us. High calculational performance, good display with normal resolution (although not as Retina), large built-in memory – all that are obvious pluses… Root firmware also adds positive features to the tablet.

" In Russia retail price of Beholder Behold BeTAB 1041 is about $320. For this sum user gets high-quality tablet PC, that yield less to products of eminent brands. Perhaps, the only thing it lacks is built-in GPS-receiver, but this hardly may be called as drawback.

"Behold BeTAB 1001: first Android tablet PC, that not ashamed to compare with iPad" – review on site Reviews.ru!
"Testing last year the more than one budgetary Android tablet, at e certain moment I cought myself thinking that if you are looking for inexpensive tablet, then you shouldn't dream about a good screen, stylish design and, of course, latest version of Android. Eventually I am resigned to the situation and decided that if I want the tablet with good IPS screen, as in Samsung or iPad, then I need to hoard money for Samsung or iPad. There is no other way.

"At present the retail price of Behold BeTAB 1001 is about $350. Competitors for this price offer devices with OS Android 2.3 and not the best displays. In the case of our tablet PC we have an excelent IPS screen, powerful performance, new operating system and a good assembling quality. From drawbacks we should notice rather slow Wi-Fi and the absence of HDMI video output. The first minus is a drawback with a stretch – web-sites are opened without a problems, and that's a scope of tablet PCs. HDMI-output is also not often necessary – at home you'll view media content primarily from PC or media storage rather than tablet PC. So, if mentioned disadvantages are not important for you, you may easily buy Behold BeTAB 1001 – it worths the money it costs."

"With the exception of arguable design, Behold BeTAB 7071 left very pleasant impression. Taking into account not high retail price of about $300, this tablet PC will became good choice for that who needs built-in 3G-module. There are also models without 3G module on the same platform, and they could be interesting for potential buyer – one may rarely encounter budget-priced solutions, that work good and don't leave negative impression.

"Behold BeTAB 7071 turned out to be very functional. It has all that only could be in a tablet PC, unless the GPS module, but you can connect it by Bluetooth. Speed and time of work on battery will be sufficient for most modern users. And the main trump of Behold BeTAB is 3G module that allows to enjoy surfing the Web all places all time.

Test of Android tablet PC Behold BeTAB on site Reviews.ru!
"On the whole, Behold BeTAB leaves a very good impression. Nowadays it is rarely can be seen such a well thought-out and high-quality product, especially, in mainstream segment, where quality and functionality for a long time receded into the background and the main feature is the price. Due to a powerful stuff, Behold BeTAB without any problem manages most applications which could be today installed on Android tablets. It ideally suits for web-surfing, viewing video, talking in Skype and in social networks, reading books and even for popular games. Insignificant restrictions concern video in HD quality and only over the network, and some hard games, exigent to top performance of 3D engine, built into CPU. As for me, I noticed such features of tablet PC as accurate localization of Android (met for the first time in Android tablets), 3G support that allows to organize mobile connection to Internet without extraneous hardware, support of high speed Wi-Fi controller 802.11n, hight sensitivity sensor screen, two cameras, high performance and high capacity of accumulator, that allows to effectively use tablet round the day".

"Of course, one review is notenough for detailed investigation of all questions concerned with choice of modern TV tuner, nevertheless, even this will be sufficient to realize that there is nothing complicated in modern tuners, and once you understood what do you need and what you can expect from modern mnodels, the choice will not be difficult. In conclusion we would remember that capabilities of tuner depend not so on its hardware stuff as on application software. This become obvious on the sample of Beholder tuners, where even the cheapest models may boast of possibilities inavailable on tuners of other manufacturers".

"If we are looking for compact tuner with stable receive of DVB-T signal and good receive of analog broadcast, then Behold TV Wander Lite is worthy candidate. Especially if we intend to use it with notebook, when the necessity in remote control is rather low. Wander Lite was able to receive well in "village". In "city" or with good cable TV signal it provides excellent picture. What concerns Voyage Lite, it is able to receive only analog TV, and its advantages and limitations comply with its possibilities. By the way, antenna inputs of both tuners support GIAI technology – it is galvanically insulated and protected from breakdown by high voltage".

Hybrid TV tuner Behold TV H85. Review on site Hwp.ru!
"The standard for good modern TV tuner today is the PCI Express interface and support of both analog and digital DVB-T TV broadcast. And though each TV tuner manufacturer on Russian market has to have pure analog models in assortment for regions that yet haven't digital TV, our immense fatherland already has areas, where the aerial antenna can receive only digital TV broadcast and analog TV, if only exist, is available only by cable. As a rule, that are distant regions, far from provincial centers. But not always, – DVB-T signal is more robust to noise pickup, that's why even within one city where the analog TV retransmitter is in the visibility limits, there may be situation that analog TV is not received to the aerial antenna, if the building's windows directed towards the opposite side or the house is in the hollow. Digital TV is already presented in many regions of Russia and now hybrid TV tuners are the very things worth to buy."

"TV tuner Behold TV 501 has PCI interface and receives only analog TV (and FM!) channels and captures analog video (from S-Video and RCA "tulip" inputs). Who may be surprised by such characteristics… But do we need to surprise every time? What will we loose and gain if we choose low cost Behold TV 501? Already for many years we are adjured, lured or frightened by total digital era. Sound is digital a long time ago and most users listeners use digital audio formats and devices. Pictures and photos – surrendered at the pressure of digits, and in spite of there still continue discussions about shades of color rendering on modern digital devices, nowadays many pro-photographers and all amateur photographers prefer digital devices. The same fate striked also video, texts and who knows what else – all is transfered to the digital formats. But not quite all. In our country TV and FM broadcast, being produced and prepared in digital technologies, still broadcasted in analog signal."

Long expected TV tuners Behold TV H8 and A8 with PCI Express interface. Review on site Hwp.ru!
"Beholder company, which credo is to make most up-to-date and rich of functions TV tuners, didn't release for a long time models for PCI Express bus, most required in modern PCs, where sometimes it is the only possibility for upgrade, of course, not considering USB. It may seem that company intentionally ignores this bus, and every new announce of Beholder tuner attracted our attention primarily by the interface – when PCI Express model will appear at last? Indeed, more than a year developers from Beholder wrought the novelties. After all, unlike many other manufacturers just copying reference-design from NXP and making the same tuners with their own logos, Beholder ought to integrate all its hardware and software technologies to the completely new platform. And at last – long-expected release, two boards with PCI Express 1x interface, hybrid Behold TV H8 and analog Behold TV A8. Words mixed up, breath disrupted, pulse raised, but let's cope with this excitement and see, what represent these novelties in characteristics."

"After a year from releasing PCI TV tuner BeholdTV X7, in which Beholder for the first time implemented "silicone" RF-module and three new technologies, company advertises new generation of PCI-E TV tuners. We can't say that today the transfer to the PCI-E bus is vitally important. Especially if we are talking about classic analog and hybrid tuners, where usual PCI solutions may exist as long as our mainboards will have PCI bus. Nevertheless, there exist areas, where classic PCI bus become unsatisfactory. And the reason is not so in throughput capacity as in solutions that may not be designed using old component base. First of all we are talking about so-called mega-hybrid and multi-channel TV tuners. TV tuners making up the new product line don't belong to that interesting and expensive direction, but represent classic analog (BeholdTV A8) and hybrid (BeholdTV H8) TV tuners, capable to receive aerial analog and digital TV and radio broadcast. But this doesn't reduce their value in the product line of modern TV tuners. Just the opposite, due to combination of merits, peculiar to all previous series of BeholdTV tuners, and new capabilities, uncovering the potential of hardware, we can talk about that these TV tuners will easily eclipse all available today PCI-E tuner models."

Indeed, by removing the chip NEC D61151F1 from the board, Beholder company got noticeably cheaper tuner."

"In comparison with other manufacturers of TV tuners, Beholder doesn't frequently give us a treat of new models. But inspite of this, we are waiting every new model with trepidation. 9 February 2009 Beholder announced new tuner that received the name BeholdTV X7, telling us that it belongs to the new, 7-th series of BeholdTV tuner. Prefix X in explanation of manufacturer means that this is hybrid TV-tuner with hardware MPEG2 encoder. One would think, what's surprising in this?
