256gb ram? 😁
Donnellios09/10/2019 09:10

Are eglobal reputable? Anyone used them previously?


Never had any problems, and I've bought an S10, S10 plus, Sony XM2s from them

No import charges (check their T&C, they pay them if they do arise

Things to keep in mind:

- Just FYI the phone models etc are usually the Hong Kong versions, but this can be an advantage (e.g. the HK Snapdragon 855 version of the S10+ beats out the Exynos version seen in the UK), and you don't get warranty for most manufacturers (although Apple are different so you do get warranty).


- They usually take about a week or two between ordering and you getting the item, so longer than UK stores


Otherwise perfectly fine, have checked IMEIs etc. Pay with PayPal or credit card (Section 75), and you'll be completely fine. Many other, more "reputable" or established companies have shocking feedback too because remember, people are often more likely to review bad experiences than good ones

If you have any other qs just feel free to ask away

I wouldn’t even say it’s worth paying £25 more to be honest but depends what you want - the 2018 will only fall more in price anyway and it also comes with a case. If you’re paying more for the 2019 then might be worth looking at the Mini 5 which actually has massively more powerful hardware and a better display too, though also smaller, obviously.

My recent experience:
as long as you don't have the problems with the device - that's fine.
when something goes wrong - sh*t will hit the fan.
it's like buying from car boot market.
Just pay and don't ask questions.

Keep in mind that the 9..7'' 2018 iPad you can install and use Microsoft Office Apps for free, whereas for the 10.2'' 2019 iPad it requires a Office 365 Subscription, due to MS licencing, anything above 10.1'' is classed as requiring a subscription.

Also, the model sent by eGlobal is normally the Japanese version with a mandatory Camera shutter noise that can't be disabled even via a software update. If you work in a quiet office this might be an issue.

The one I received had a customs declaration stating "Docking Station" with a $20 value, so if checked by customs wouuld incur duty. Also a lot has to go right when you look at where the device is sent from, for you to receive it intact.
Eglobal are fine is everything goes to plan, but as said a lot can go wrong, between Eglobal dispatching the item and you receiving the item, outside of Eglobal's control.

Worth noting the 2018 model does not support the Smart Keyboard, so for those who wish to use that might want the newer one.

Also, it's not £70 less, it's £27.85 less for the same colour.

We already discussed that. And you mean the Apple Smart Keyboard that retails at £159.99? Can’t imagine many people want to spend over half the price of the iPad on an overpriced, slightly-above-average keyboard - they’ll just buy a Bluetooth one but yes, you’re right, in so far as it supports it but that’s why I didn’t mention it.

People buy all sort of things you may consider too expensive or poor value, they may even recieve them as a gift.

Also, this being a year newer means it'll be worth more on the second hand market in a few years.

That’s not an excuse. Apple charges £160 for the keyboard, that’s not good value even for a Pro user so it’s nothing to do with perceived value, it just isn’t worth it when you can get competent generic cases with keyboards for quarter that on Amazon.

It will be worth a little more but not much because most people know it’s the same as the 2018, similar with the Mini 2 and 3. Anyway if I was buying I’d buy the 2018 (because it comes with a free case anyway, is cheaper and has wider accessory compatibility) or go beyond and get the Mini 5 which is a massive boost in hardware too minus the smaller screen.

Worth noting any iPad can be paired with any bluetooth keyboard including regular Apple Bluetooth keyboards. The smart connector providing power isn't really a big issue, two/three AA batteries last months, the smart connector is a bit overkill of a cheap iPad, though does allow you to still connect another peripheral via bluetooth, i.e. bluetooth headphones.

If you don't like it dont buy it, no need to go on the internet and screech "REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE".

If someone wants the newer one they can get it for small percentage more than the previous generation, seems worth it to me even if it's not much of an upgrade.

Hey for someone who has used them more than I have does this tracking seem legit?

I ordered an Ipad pro from them on 24th September and still waiting.

It’s more of a “People still use Laptops” scenario.
Hi guys
I really try to avoid apple as dont get on with their os but have an ipad mini since 2013 and it is still running as new tbh. It is used by my 6 yo son for games and sometime to surf the web. I know for that purpose I can buy whatever but I would like something what will serve well for another few years. As my budget is £300-350 is it worth paying £80 more for an Air 2019? But there is something I really dont get...why it only has 3GB of RAM? My three years old LG G6 has 4GB. Is there any better option for my budget then iPad (maybe samsung tablet?)

Thanks

You seem pretty closed minded. What is value to one may not be to another. For instance, The apple keyboard may not be the best ‘keyboard’ but it is the lightest in form factor and portability, paired with an Ipad, Artists can use the tablet as a tool, especially paired with the (“not good value“ pencil) in perspective no other keyboard would allow paint splatter or water spillage which occurs commonly in that kind of environment. Some would say it’s essential, others may prefer a more rugged Bluetooth keyboard.
