good price, have some heat


I bought something very similar off Amazon for £159. It was faulty and it went back for a refund. Knowing that I've no consumer rights with DX then it would have to be about £60 for me to think about buying another one from them.

Subsequent research has revealed that faults are more common than I imagined. Buyers beware.

This is how it works for Android tablets.

Resistive screen = not worth buying

Therefore it's cold.

The chip seems quite fast for the price.
Heat added.

I only posted it up as it was android 2.3.
There are not that many about at the moment

And why is that?

I personally wouldn't buy one of these unless they were from a UK vendor or at least a front-man based in the UK who I can moan at (with legal recourse) when it all goes horribly wrong xD

but for the spec that's a very good price! £130 odd pounds for a 1.2ghz Arm Processor in an Android tablet is impressive

Have some heat!

Selling on Ebay for £155, but that's from a UK vendor, This is a nice tablet looking at the specs, probably the fastest China made generic Tablet i've seen. Only real problem is the resistive screen, other than looks very good spec, I wonder how much this processor differs from the one found in the Galaxy Tab.


And why is that?

1. They don't work well with fingers
2. No/limited multitouch
3. The screens usually feel 'springy'

I have had one of these for about a month and paid £139 from ebay, bought to replace my SmartQ V7 which my little boy kindly through across the floor.

Screen is fine, fairly responsive but yes for page drags you are best using your nail rather than fingertip.

Overall happy with performance, quite fast, enough room for installing apps on internal storage and 16Gb micro SD worked with no issues for storing books, and videos. Case is a little plasticky and button quality could be a lot better but for combination of performance and cost it blows most tablets away.
