Once again, i feel obliged to state that Gearbest and other chinese seller deals should NOT be permitted on this website without at least some sort of advisory warning about a) the lack of on going support for the products and b) the lack of any meaningful warranty. These deals are not good for the unwary and/or non-techies. The fact that they are posted amongst deals for UK based sellers is shameful and IMO reflects badly on HUKD.

Duplicate post, the only reason the price is slightly different is the exchange rate has changed, otherwise it's exactly the same.

It's already difficult to remember which 3 pro thread you posted on, we don't need more!!!

FLASH SALE yet wait 2 months for it! I cancelled my last order. Rather pay alittle more and get it with someone who has actual stock to ship out!

WARNING: NEVER purchase from GEARBEST!!!!
I purchased from them. After 4 months of normal use, my product began giving an error and would not work. It was within the 1-year warranty for free repair. I followed their instructions for returning it exactly as they said. I paid $100 to send it back. They said they couldn't receive it past customs, although I sent it EXACTLY as they told me too. And since it was past 45 days after purchase, they would not refund my money. Bottom line, there is no way to get their product that failed and does not work back to them for repair, and they will not honor refunding it! I feel completely victimized. I have thrown away $450 purchasing from them a product that died and then paying to ship it back - which does not work!!! (I wonder if they knew that shipping it wouldn't work?!) Please, please, please do not purchase anything from them!!! So worth the extra money to purchase within the United States where people are under our laws and we know we can mail to them!!!

hence why I am yet to bite! shame they keep tempting us with these great goodies! almost tempted to buy from their eu warehouse though people say returns are a problem there. I was going to get a smart watch from there but amazon had some for 20-30 quid anyhow.

If it was a software error you could have just fixed that yourself by reinstalling a stock version of windows 10 and if you're not computer savvy enough to do that its never a good idea to buy foreign laptops anyway for reasons exactly like that. Shipping a laptop back to fix a minor issue is extremely costly.

I agree. Pointless thread as its a complete repeat of ones already posted.

HUKD is going seriously downhill if the Editors are spamming repeat threads just for the affiliate income.

But that's a given when you buy anything from a China retailer - in return for the cheaper price, you take the risk of having difficulties if a fault develops and you ever have to return it.

If don't want the hassle, just buy something from the UK. The question is though, how many aluminium bodied, 1.3kg 13.3" IPS screen 1080p laptops have you seen in the UK for £165?

HUKD is part of the worldwide Pepper Group. I doubt that they're short of money. Driving revenue and corporate profits are more likely to be their objective!

Revolution!

On the contrary.

Of the two previous threads mentioned, one was over a month old and the other expired, so the same rules apply as they have before, ergo, this is quite a legitimate thread.

What about the English ones (some of which will be owned by parties spread across the globe) that also receive their own fair share of complaints.

With HD being a community site of sorts, Chinese retailers are always going to elicit some form of criticism from unhappy customers, just as others will too.

I have had mine for about two weeks now, am I am very pleased with it. It did take 28 days from order to delivery, and because of Gearbest's communications it did look like it could take longer. At one point they advised that it would not be available to ship "due to customs problems" until 4th Oct, however it was delivered 28th Sept.

You simply cannot buy anything comparable for under about 350 quid.

Yes the performance is not great, but as a browsing and WP machine it is fine.

Keyboard really isn't that bad, nor is the trackpad on the V4 model. Boot time is a bit slow, but once I get an SSD installed it should be fine.

Construction is excellent (looks sexy!), and the screen is very good.

Outstanding value but you do have to accept the risk that you will have no support in the event of problems. I probably wouldn't spend several hundred pounds on a phone from china due to lack of support and upgrades, but for a laptop I find the risk acceptable.

Well said, I posted in the previous thread that the code worked to bring it down to this price. The excited glee of being able to post it again for affiliate income is palpable.

I bricked a phone phone by upgrading firmware and stupidly returned it to gearbest. Never seen again......buy knowing these risks but please HUKD stop degrading your integrity by over advertising.

I have had deals deleted from here before now when I posted things from outside of the UK.

Come on HUKD, what are the rules?

Ha fair point. But 99pc of their stuff is stocked in the UK and you certainly don't need to worry about refunds!

But that's what is so wrong with Amazon. Everything is here yet they don't pay the corporation tax rates of other UK businesses, 19%, its how they have grown so big and wiped out competition. They may well have tweaked it in the past couple of years so that more corp tax is paid but don't for one second think that all of what they sell goes through Amazon UK, it still uses Amazon Sarl, Luxembourg.

If you could buy petrol for 81p instead of a £1, legally, which are you going choose?

I agree with you but the difference won't be as large as the gap you mentioned...

Corporation tax is a tax on profits

Profits = difference between selling price and cost

They have reduced bloated cost in the retail sector due to not needing fixed costs of shops which are yesterday's technology.

But you're right a UK online retailer vs a Luxembourg one could in theory eliminate that too (but don't knock amazon's warehouses which are super efficient)

But say the item costs £1

We pay VAT of 20% (I think some of that was avoided with books from Isle of Man but think that has stopped a long time ago)

So the revenue for amazon is 83.33p (as 1.2 x 83.33= £1)

Now the corporation tax depends on their profit

If the cost of the good and all the rent and wages etc is 80p then really they are avoiding tax on 3.33p not on 20p

We do pay VAT which is the bulk of the tax

The 3 pro is worth the (frustrating) wait! Making note of the lack of any real usable warranty - so buyer beware!

Browse the techtablets forum for all the good and bad on this laptop: techtablets.com/for…es/

Buying a m.2 SSD is a must I would say (the soldered on 64GB emmc storage is very slow in comparison):

256GB (approx £58): aliexpress.com/sto…tml

128GB (approx £37: aliexpress.com/sto…tml

64GB (approx £25): aliexpress.com/sto…tml

And couple that with a fresh install of Win10 (use the Microsoft Media Creation Tool to create a Win10 USB stick - the Win10 licence key is in the Jumpers UEFI BIOS so don't worry about that).

Even without a new m.2 SSD I would recommend a fresh install of Win10.

Backup the drivers first onto a blank USB stick ready for the odd one or two that do not get detected properly in the install process: thewindowsclub.com/exp…ell

Cheers

All companies have costs, all companies should pay corporation tax at 19%.

Sadly Amazon and a few others get away with not paying it. Any other waffle they come out with about VAT and the number of employees is irrelevant, they still need to pay corporation tax on profit. One of the ways companies reduce the corporation tax is transfer pricing, it effectively reduces the profit a company is seen to be making by having companies in low tax countries making the real profit.

I doubt it will be too long until we will be paying the corporation tax at the point of purchase.

When it comes to a product like this, no UK seller stocks it and it's highly doubtful that they would be able to beat this sort of price. The specs of this laptop easily beat any others sold here at the same price point.

At the end of the day, people should be able to spend their money on what they want, if they want much better specs and build quality at the cost of a year's warranty, that should be their choice to make. Not a bad choice either when you think about it, since the chance of one failing completely within a year is quite low.

I am not saying that Chinese deals should not be on HUKD at all. I acknowledge many people like them and i include myself. In fact i think the Jumper EZBOOK 3 PRO is a very good deal and if i was in the market for a budget laptop it would be on my shortlist. What i am saying is that buying these Chinese products come with potential drawbacks (e.g. no meaningful warranty) and that this should be made clear to the noobs and non-techies, so that they have the information they need to make an informed purchasing decision. Unfortunately money talks so i think it unlikely to ever happen voluntarily.

I am saying gearbest should be banned from this site, despite ordering in October they have failed to honour the deal, pushing delivery beyond Christmas forcing me to ask for a refund. How they get away with it is beyond me, we are just suckers for bargains but we are being seriously played imho.
