just a personal update, since I was about to buy another for my son; had it since March, use it daily, love it. Mail, surfing, games mostly (use my desk and laptop for real work). Recommended to a relative, she loves hers, mostly for taking/sending photos to family. Screen resolution is very good.
(AC plug got hot, but daughter had one from a Chinese device that is perfect.)

Just giving peeps a heads up when dealing with these overseas merchants. I recommend using Paypal, documenting everything regarding the sale, all correspondence with the merchant, damage/defect items with pictures/videos and staying on top of them when you request a refund as they will come with excuses to stall you. If you're without the item, no matter the circumstance or what the merchant may say, be sure to submit your dispute to paypal within the 45 day period or you're screwed. Escalate within the time frame if necessary. *Don't waste your time getting an exchange from the merchant as it will be too late for you to get any recourse.

|eric93se||Man that's too bad. So you think there was some internals problems or a bad battery and a custom rom would not have fixed the power issue? Did you leave it on the charger for a few hours before using it, maybe the battery gauge was not initialized because it was so new and maybe not charged.|

IMHO I'm staying from away these china no name brand tablets because:
1- If anything happens you pay shipping back to china
2- questionable hardware quality and support from manufacture
3- lower community support.
4- rarely come out of the box and work right like it should and you have to tinker with it and do this/that just to get it right.
Personallhy I would raither jut spend alittle extra for piece of mind of support and warranty from vendor/manufacture and have it work like it should. my time is worth more $ than looking up roms and fixes etc...
On a personal note I order one of those Ainol crystal 7 from Geekbuying a few months ago. the touchscreen was defective. it took a month to a RMA (mainly because it takes them a week to respond to a email. and inital 3 weeks they tell me to do this, do that to fix it).
- Long story short it took a month till they received it (and thats only becasue I asked).
- They said they will refund it but they never did (dispite numerous emailed) I had to go through Paypal to file a FRAUD CASE to get a refund and the guy just paypal me the money so I get charged the paypal fee.. (on top of the $27 postage I aleready spent on shipping back to them)
- Geekbuying have alot of complaints look at their facebook page.
