5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, Good Price., 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I Took a chance with this tablet.. I actually have 2 of them now. The reasons for 2..
It's fast, both in normal use and with its graphics in games.
Lots of features like HDMI out, micro sd slot, g sensor and ability to be charged from its normal port or the usb slot (need a 2amp usb charger though).
The WiFi on it is fast and the Bluetooth works well.
I have plugged into this tablet a 4 port USB hub and then ran both a full size keyboard and an optical mouse from the hub with no problems. A mouse cursor appears on the tablet screen, it's just like using a computer!
I have also plugged into it a USB stick and watched media from it. Also streamed movies from Netflix over the WiFi and from tethered WiFi mobiles with no problems.
The battery life while on Netflix on WiFi was over 4.5 hours. I still had about 25% battery life but not the time to sit for another movie to see if the last 25% drops fast like on some phones.

What's in the box....
UK 3 pin plug power charger for connection to the non USB power point on the tablet.
Micro USB adaptor so you can plug in standard USB devices (keyboard or mouse etc.)
USB cable ( micro USB at one end and standard connector at other) this is so you can connect the tablet to your PC to download or upload data / media.
Very basic setup book and the Tablet.

If I could improve anything with this fun, easy to use tablet it is the not very loud speakers on it.
If you are in a room that is not quite you may have trouble hearing it even on full volume. Add a case that covers the back and its even worse. Luckily the tablet has a headphone socket and Bluetooth so you can use those to connect in an external powered portable speaker and that problem is solved.

Problem 2 is the screen. If you look at the screen in portrait mode, the side viewing angle is not great. This is not that much of an issue as most of the time you will be using it in landscape. Which I find has no problems. The screen is OK. It's not Samsung or Apple quality but then again this is less that a quarter of the price. it is NOT made from gorilla glass or those high strength materials either. So invest in a proper screen protector else it WILL get scratched.

Problem 3 is that everything you install from Google play goes on the tablet storage and you have to go into the storage App list and tell it to move them to your SD card else you will run out of space fast.

I would happily buy this product for family or friends as a gift.. as I have done with the second one I bought.

I can't comment on the customer service of the company as I have not had to deal with them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the case for a photo-fanatic, 9 April 2013
Item arrived with all stated extras. It was a little hard to get the phone clipped into the case (Sony Xperia S), but once in it was secure. The plastic that holds it looked a little flimsy on one side due to the length of the thin piece above the side controls.
This case is not designed for you to keep removing the phone. Once it's in it is best to leave it in.

The main fault as I found was not this plastic but the hole for the camera. It is to small. When you take a photo with flash everything has a green glow to it. It is not possible to make the hole larger due to the way the outer case is attached to the inner plastic. After removing the phone a few times to take photos the thin piece of plastic finely snapped. At this point I gave up using it.

Plus points.. Well padded to protect the phone in bag or coat pocket from any knocks. Its bright colour made it easy to find and the extras all worked fine with no problems (screen protector, cleaner and mini touch pen.

Just a shame about the bad camera hole. (had a solution for the hole I painted the hole black so that the green glow effect from the flash was nullified.)
Raised issue with seller and had a very good response. So I can say the customer service department is good with this company.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family fights all round, 3 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This items has caused no end of arguments with the result that another may well have to be bought! The reason... its great to use when you get in from work and you are sitting there with your fav drink watching the TV of on the PC just rolling your feet back and forth. Aches and pains from being on your feet just slowly ease away. Due to this it tends to see alot of use. It has held up very well so far and would recommend it to friends and family for foot use. I think it may be to small for body use and that would require another person to roll it over you. All in all though a good buy and definatly popular in our house.
Thanks.
