Redfox Wizbook ARC Z8110C Review

I bought my Redfox Wizbook ARC Z8110C last November and so far its good. Some of the things I really like about it are the following:

  • Long battery life – I think it can last for up to 8 hours
  • Lightweight and handy- One of the reasons I bought a netbook is because my laptop is too big and this one really makes up for it.
  • Girly color – I saw its light green and pink version and its both lovely!
  • Fast-charging – Not only does it charge fast but I can also leave it overnight because it automatically stops charging when its full.
  • Convertible to tablet – Just flip the keyboard and you can easily use it as a tablet.

The only things I didn’t like about it are the following:

  • Screen blacks out every once in a while – When this happens, I press the right-click button of the mouse and it turns on again. But press any other button after that and it blacks out again. I’m not sure if I received a defective unit or if its a glitch in all Wizbook ARCs. I just don’t have the time to visit their shop to check. However, if you experience this one too, just press the power button once and wait for it to open. If that doesn’t work, restart the PC and that will surely do it.
  • Limited memory – Although it can be expanded, my problem is with the Windows update. Can it use the memory card’s space when updating?
  • Doesn’t connect easily to public networks – I had to manually create a network profile to be able to connect to some public wifi.

Price: 15,995 but you have the option to pay for it in 1 year installment (with interest). I bought mine at Redfox branch in SM North Edsa and they said it comes with 1 year warranty if I’m not mistaken.


The Redfox Wizbook ARC Z8110C for me is definitely worth it. I am a virtual assistant so I mainly use my laptop for work. However, when I go on vacation or out in a coffee shop, my laptop is too big and heavy for me so I decided to get a netbook to bring with me everywhere. My work mainly needs me to open a web Skype, 4 to 5 browsers in Chrome at a time and remote desktop. I can open them all at the same time but its performance gets slower.

So what I do is finish all my tasks in Chrome then close it before I open my remote desktop. If you’ll be using this for school or simple browsing/streaming, this netbook will be good for you. Anything more than that, this netbook may be too slow for you.

Update: 7/7/2018

After 6 months of using the netbook, the last line of keys in the keyboard stopped working, the touch screen doesn’t work properly and the screen still goes black. I messaged RedFox on their Facebook account to complain. It took a while for them to get back to me but they did.

When I reached their service center, the person who assisted me told me they should be able to have it fixed in 2 to 3 days. However, it might take a while before they fix mine because they don’t have a spare keyboard for my unit. Two days later, they called to send me an update which is a good thing. Now, I will have to wait for their next update.


  1. hi! Im planning to buy one din po. Did you use external drive or flash drives para sa files mo po when saving? Hindi po ba ito nag suit for you as a VA?

    • Hi! As a VA ang programs na lagi ko lang gamit is Chrome. Kaya naman nya multiple tabs pero pag sobrang dami na medyo nag slow down na sya. Sa files ko naman, mostly word docs lang so hindi na need ng flash drive. Pero if madami ka heavy files, you will need an external drive. Sakto lang yung memory nya so hindi ka na makakaupdate or install big programs. Minsan din hindi gumagana KB pero may one time na shake ko sya accidentally and pag on ko ulit , nag work na KB. So now every time hindi gumagana KB, ni shake ko sya and pag on ko ulit nag work na.

  2. HI! Im a college student and Im planning to buy this laptop for my school works and thesis. Do you think it will work just fine if I have many search bar open? tabs? Does the keyboard works just fine? and does Ms Office works okay? Thankyou. I’ll really appreciate if you’ll answer. 😊

    • Hi! So far it works with multiple tabs. Keyboard is okay but there are times that it doesnt. I had it fixed since it was still under warranty but it didnt work again after 2 months. However, I found out that if I mildly shake the netbook while turned off, the keyboard works again. Weird right? :/ You will need to have an MS office works but mine expired after 30 days from date of purchase. Biggest problem is memory is little so you can’t update it but so far no crashes.

    • Nung pinaayos ko naman saakin sa service center nila, nawala na yung sira sa screen. However, yung sa keyboard bumalik. Then pag hindi ko sya ginalaw ng one day – pag open ko ng netbook ayos na ulit yung keyboard
