Looks good bang for buck.
However, it'll probably have some dodgy shoe-horned mobile phone ROM on it, like similar ones my brother-in-law and Dad bought.
#3
I would go for this if I needed one...with that spec and latest OS coupled with a low price it gives a lot of cost/performance.

Seems a good deal. Shame it's ebuyer though. Would you have to deal with them in the event of a fault?

I have this tablet and its the best value for money by far.The Mrs Loves it. I used it on a long haul flight several weeks ago and watched 3 movies and it still had some juice left in it. paid £100 for mine so this is a right result

Seems good, shame no gps though.

This is more a tablet for home use, I guess.

what apps does the lack of GPS affect?
#12
I was looking at these yesterday.I'm after a cheap 8-9 inch tablet for my mother and if these turn out to be a at least as good as the sero 7 I might end up with one for myself...

No root details yet, but hopefully those kind folks over at XDA will be working on it ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/help/root-hisense-sero-8-t2801259 )

Seems like a good price for what it is, nice processor and pretty decent screen. Don't know enough about this sort of stuff to poke holes in it, but I can't see any.

I had one but sold it in the end , poor build quality screen not a patch on 1st gen nexus 7 camera and flash very poor , I got a 32gb nexus 7 instead.

I have the Sero 7. It's specs were better than the old Nexus 7 with hdmi port and micro sd card slot. I have no complaints about it at all. I assume the Sero 8 is just that much better.
Based on my experience of the 7 I would buy the 8 without hesitation. (if I hadn't just bought a stupid ipad mini, anyway)
#21
That review says it weighs 450 grams, which is heavy for an 8* tab. My Galaxy tab 3.8.0 weighs 314gm.
#22
Would this be better than my rooted nook hd+

I presume you meant the Sero 7? Or have you just made the mistake of comparing a 7 inch tab with an 8 inch one? And if so, is it worth paying an extra £40 for a slightly better camera/flash etc. Surely you can get a decent standalone camera for that price now.
#24
Anymore reviews from anyone?

Looks ok for 8 inch tablet. Shame no HDMI out by look of things. I don't care about the camera. They shouldn't bother with a camera on tablets IMO!

Unless you know where to sent these back when they go faulty, then I wouldn't recommend buying one from ebuyer, after a week, they would reject any RMA, so it is your job to find the warranty yourself, got stunk with a batch of SSD drives earlier this year, had to contact Sandisk and sent the faulty units to Czech at my own cost, even though I reported the fault after just two weeks, they weren't interested.

The law says they have to be interested whether they like it or not. Report them to trading standards.

Note that this has the cheaper RK2188T chip, which is clocked at 1.4Ghz and not the 1.6Ghz of the original, which probably won't make much difference to most.

UK Law is very clear on this.

Hi there, if the Hisense Sero 8 goes faulty, you can get in contact with Hisense UK Limited, which is based in Leeds. Please check their official website (www.hisense.co.uk) for contact details. Do not worry about the faulty unit, the service team of Hisense UK will help you out. Cheers.
#32
Hisense may well be willing to help but the responsibility remains with Ebuyer as the seller. You now have 14 days for online orders to return an item if you don't like it. If it goes wrong you can expect a full refund within a reasonable time, normally around 30 days.
Beyond this you may have to accept a repair.

Bought one but I find it a bit slow. It lags a lot. Also some apps are not compatible (Yahoo Weather, Google Keep, Lovoo)

what do you find it lags on? I need it for my mother to watch movies and browse the net, so I don't need something that's great at multi tasking....

Well, it freezes also swiping screens or the notification panel. The general feeling is slow though...but probably it is just me used to a Nexus 5 (which flies), I cannot expect that performance from a £80 device! I will probably return it

Maybe try rooting, and removing any bloatware...

Bought one from eBuyer with a 16GB microSD card a few weeks ago and it's perfect! I had reservations on the quality for this price but needn't have worried when I got it. The display is very crisp, sound is fantastic - nice deep and rich sound (and pity there's only one though). Straight out the box and downloaded all my Google Play Store apps matching those I have on my Galaxy S3. " You pays your money and you takes your choice" says the doomsayers. I can rest assured that the naysayers will be gnashing their teeth when you see how beautifully crafted this little object of desire is. I use mine as a sketchpad, Kindle reader, DAW (Digital Audio Workstation with Caustic3)...list goes on and on. Only reservation though and it's a word to the wise for all you technoboffins, this tablet doesn't seem to have OTG (On The Go) capability for addition of external microUSB storage or peripheral connections. This will, of course be remedied by rooting the tablet with your own versions but I was hoping to use my M-Audio KeyRig 49 MIDI keyboard controller but tablet wasn't interested in it. Don't delay and grab yourself one!
