Hi guys

 

I have been looking at tablets for a number of months, then when I finally find the tablet I want to purchase, I have no idea where to purchase it from. 

 

I have contacted sales, and an Ivan @ 51cube.com, and I have not received any response (granted, I sent the e-mails in English).

 

I'm really apprehensive to purchase from any other retailer, as they all seem to have horror stories (www.cube-tablet.com for example). Can anyone point me into the direction of a reputable seller?

 

Many thanks

 

David

Two friends and I had good sales experience with these guys: fast shipping and good communication.

I can't tell about the support or RMA as the hardware had no problem so far Wink

Thanks for the quick response - order made!

 

I will post the outcome once it arrives, the AliExpress site seems pretty good, offers plenty of advice about purchasing from it's clients.

Okay - just to post a review of my purchase, together with feedback about the seller.

 

After ordering the tablet through AliExpress, I was frustrated to find that my first purchase was rejected, as all customers must first go through a payment verification process, where the user has to submit photo id together with the card they are using. I was a little uncomfortable doing this but after researching, AliExpress seems to be very reputable, and is just like a Asian Amazon, so i sent the details. 

Once accepted, I made the purchase. I think it worked out around $155usd (£105), which included a leather case. The company processing the order did so on the 5th February. Once it was processed I received a DHL reference number, that I could monitor delivery status online. 

DHL picked the order up on Friday 8th Feb, took it to Germany on the 9th Feb, then East Midlands (uk) 10th Feb. The parcel arrived on my doorstep on the 11th Feb, so the actual delivery process only took 4 days!! (Wow!!)

Upon opening the package I was surprised that the tablet was so light and good looking. I loaded it up to find that, even though the seller and instructions detailed android 4.0, it actually had version 4.1.1 installed. It looks like the kernel version is 3.0.8+.

I am really surprised with the quality of the tablet - the screen is great, and the video quality looks as good as HD quality. The sound is good, with 2 speakers on the rear. Issues that people have been reporting with the Wireless and Streaming videos (youtube etc.) are non existent, as I have been able to stream videos without a problem.

The default keyboard was Chinese, but this was easily corrected by downloading a swype keyboard application. Just to confirm, this tablet has the full Google market.

The tablet response is great, there is no lag when moving between screens or running applications. 

Currently, I have no negative comments to make regarding this tablet. I've only been using for 2 days, but if I experience any problems, I'll post another response on here.

 

In summary - I'm very happy with this purchase. For what I paid, this is a great buy!! Laugh

Thanks for your feedback, glad everything worked as you expected Wink

I don't remember any card verification process on my first Aliexpress first order, maybe they do it randomly or on some credit card types/countries.

Have fun with your U23GT !

Cheers.
