Heat added, just not sure I'd want to spend that much with Gearbest. Does anyone know the best way to pay which offers good money back protection?

Ordered the 2x HI8's from them a bit back and it arrived (with import duty).
I'm going to guess others will reply where they have not received their goods.
Credit cards are usually the best for protection, not sure how it works tbh.
Looks a cracking tablet but like JJHUKD, I'm unwilling to spend that sort of money with Gearbest. Hot from me though.

For purchases over £100 section 75 is what you are interested in using on a credit card.

moneysavingexpert.com/sho…ses

However from experience most card providers will offer similar levels of protection for figures under that amount. It's generally advantageous to use a credit card for all purchases anyway as even small transactions under say £10-15 the card providers will often just refund the transaction if you don't receive the goods as it's easier than them messing around with paperwork.

P.S. That usually only will work a few times for any of HUKD's resident con artists, after this the card provider will usually dump a load of paperwork for you to fill out and eventually if you become a serial abuser of this 'loophole' they will find a way to cancel your account.

P.P.S. Paying using a credit card through Paypal negates any benefits of using a credit card. Paypal literally gives you 0 protection despite their assurances that they offer great protection. Paypal is generally only of benefit for things like using ebay (as it's pretty much a requirement) and for paying for deals like humble bundle where the item should be delivered instantly. Anything else that could go wrong at a later date I'd never consider PayPal as an option.

As to the deal, I spent £50 on the Chuwi Hi8 tablet which was a gift to my other half last Christmas, overall very happy, good performance, decent screen. The main down sides of that model are the poor battery life (massively lower than advertised) and that support is non existent. Not sure I'd want to risk 3 times that amount even if I had protection under Section 75.

Maybe go for this from EU Warehouse to cut down risk (slightly smaller screen / resolution is a little less but same spec)

Then install bluestacks and you have a Windows 10 / Android tablet

Ive bought tablets and phones from China dx.. gearbest and the likes.. when it comes to guarantee.. its none existant...
although the deal is excellent.. not having that peace of mind and support.. I wouldn't risk it. I've been there too many times before.
For cheap accessories I would buy from China.. but not the tech items themselves.
thought I would share my experiences and spare someone from a headache or two!
Cracking specs for the money but it seems I'm with the rest - too much to risk through this company and also for a tablet that basically has no support or warranty.

Ebay UK seller, warranty dual boot Win/Android
I was looking at some on Aliexpress, I'd be careful as to what the spec really is, I know this is GB but just thought it's worth mentioning:

Ordered it two weeks ago as well as the keyboard for it. This was my first purchase from china.
This morning order status was still "Processing" so I thought I'll try to cancel my order. After reading lots of bad reviews of GB I wasn't expecting this to be be easy or quick but to my surprise it took about 20min. on live chat and everything I paid was back in my PayPal account before the chat was finished. To be honest I was VERY surprised. Could be just me being lucky or it could have something to do with the fact that this offer is apparently sponsored by Intel and when ordering I got another 5% off from PayPal.
I might order it now from another place, ideally from EU warehouse.

This is a lot of tablet for the money but its very risky and it takes forever. At this price I was prepared to risk it and I thought I can wait for it for a few weeks but it turns out I'm not that patient
