Cube U30GT2

The aerial/antenna on the wifi is rediculous/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdrrible on these things !!!!!

So far, the power supply stops lots of people using the touch screen properly whilst plugged into charge the battery.

And the most pain in the neck thing is the wireless wifi reception, even if you try and do the "so called fixes" that might work that you should not need to do for an item that cost approx £200, its just terrible !

 

I am not opening it up and soldering a new antenna in etc, to heck with that rubbish !

 

And DHL have said that for an item that costs approx £200 it would cost approx £60 to get it sent back, and going from what I have read on some forums this is just a total joke as you may end up with the same item back unfixed, or even worse condition etc, so its not even worth it in realistic terms to send it back ! These things are a con and waste of money I'm afraid, and the company sometimes produces good quality products too, well I mean where I bought mines from which is mixeshop.com.

Its sad because it is a good product, but you need to sit in the same room as the wifi router, thats no good, soon as you step over the door or into another room etc the signal breaks down, and then the charging problem and the touchscreen not working proper whilst it charges up, thats no good either, its not good is it ?

To be honest in my opinion they should not be allowed to sell a faulty product like this, its against the law in the UK, so they should not be able to sell to the UK, make any excuses up you like, but its a piece of junk when you honestly think about it, if it worked 100% then that would be great, but it doesnt, so it gets a 2 out of 10 rating on my scorecard, its a real pity they didnt spend more time in getting things correct.

 

Please someone at least agree with me even if you are willing to put up with the faults, but you do know and understand that its not correct, right ?

 

Thanks.

to be honest I think you are overreacting.

my router (cisco nrouter) is hanging in the hallway wixh is about 7 meters from where I sit and type this.

there are 2 doors and a wall inbetween and I still got a -50dB strenght and 40Mbps connection.

testing with speedtest.net I got about 25Mb/s speed wich is good enough for streaming fullHD from my wired pc upstairs. the tablet is picky on wireless though, it cannot see as much routers as my S3 but itvs connecting pretty good to my own network.

 

also the touchscreen problem isn't really a problem of the tablet. My work tablet (samsung tab2 10") has the exact same problem when connected to a cheap ass power supply. that is the problem with this tablet: the power supply is not stable enough. when measured with my scope it has a terrible ripple in the dc line, that's why the touchscreen behaves badly when charging.

 

bottom line:

buy a decent router and configure it the right way, try the lowest possible channel because that will give the most stable connection.

buy a decent power supply.

Over-reacting ? what ?

Come on mate, have a look around the forum and other forums too.

 

The touchscreen should work perfect when the charger is plugged in, it doesnt, it is erratic, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt and as a result people are having to buy a better quality stable battery charger unit and then they say it works better, but thats not right, not after youve just spent £200 for the tablet in the first place !

 

Then the wifi wireless issue, it should pick up your wireless signal from any router in the house (at least in the house but should even be able to go into the garden too but there is no chance of that at all), the antenna or aerial or whatever you call it that is fitted in these things is rediculously poor quality unless you are in the same room as the wifi router to get the signal, other than that it drops off if you dare walk outside into the garden or upstairs etc.

I have tested it in comparison with my old laptop computer which is at least 5 to 8 years old and the signal I get on that old laptop is full strength even out in the garden, up the stairs, even if I go about 50 meters outside the house the old golden oldie laptop is still nearly at full strength signal.

But you have the proof on this site and other forums too, people are all complaining about the same things as me, its not just me saying this, people are having to buy their own new battery chargers because the ones supplied with the cube is not up to the job and dangerous too, mines nearly melted it was that hot, and other people are actually buying a better replacement antenna/aerial to fit in the unit from places like ebay etc just to get the wifi wireless signal working the way it should.(plus you need knowledge of electrics and soldering etc too even if you wanted to attempt this).

 

This is not right at all, and the proof is in this website and others to back up what I am saying mate :(

 

P.s

I am not saying this is a bad tablet pc if it was working as it should do properly, infact it would be excellent, but the fact is that most people are reporting exactly the same faults as I am, simple as that, its just a pity the company didnt get it right when building it and then none of the complaint issues would be here at all, but unfortnately the faults are there with most people etc, its a pity or else this would be a great bit of kit.

fact is: People having problems are always flooding the forums wich is understandable but I can tell out of my own experience the problems you are having are not with all devices, mine is working ok except some graphic issues that are software related.

apart from that the power supply is a real mess, just like almost every power supply from China.

 

I am typing this on a galaxy S3 atm while in my car, if I plug in my car charger I get exactly the same problem with the touchscreen.

 

alas my unit is working great, bought from a dutch suplier with 2 years of warranty so I have nothing to complain.

 

hope you get your problems solved!

wish I would have know that I could have bought the darn thing from another country closer to home as the chinese place I bought mines from is just rediculous at customer service.

 

they dodge every question you ask them about the faulty wifi/wireless connection, they simply wont even talk about it at all, when we know, you too, that there are lots of people with the same problem, and when you look at that in world sales I bet thats a lot of people, then the faulty power supply/battery charger unit too, they hardly even want to talk about that, thier website doesnt even have a returns policy section or nothing, its a terrible place and I made a big mistake buying from there and no doubt lots of other people ordered from the same place too because its one of the better known chinese shops/factories.

 

Anyway, we'll see how it goes, if they dont start helping very soon I will have no option but to speak to the company I used to purchase the goods online etc.

 

p.s

I hope your not texting and driving at the same time, hehehehehe, only kidding, cheers mate and have a good friday night :)

You are right, this tablet is a waste of money and time on so many levels. I barely typed this due to a huge KB lag it has, WiFi sucks with all fixes applied. I have my old tf101 flying at every point in my house, and letters on KB jump at you even before you press them. Mine is going on eBay before everyone else realises what a piece of shit this is. I can get xperia z for just 150eur more, and so I will do.

Sometimes the lag may be due to building up the cache. Shutdown the tablet about 3 or 4 times after running it for about 5 minutes each time, and you should see dramatic improvements.

32 GB xperia Z tablet has a pricetag of 549 euro over here in the Netherlands, cube u30gt2 32GB have cost me 269 euros, that's almost half the price of the sony tablet, ofcourse you have a better tablet with the sony xperia z, would be strange if it wasn't so with that difference in price...

you cannot say that everyone else will see that this tablet is a piece of shit, speak for yourself please.

my experience with this tab is good, a lot faster then my previous tab (p7510) and my work tab (provided by my employer because it has 3g build in) samsung tab2.

much better resolution, games play way better (apart from some graphic glitches of wich I think are coming from either lacking kernel optimisations or badly written games reacting bad on the high resolution of the screen).

I do not have any lag in the keyboard, but I am using thumbkeyboard because of the added numbers row and cursor keys.

 

good luck selling your u30gt2, are you gonna put it on ebay with the same words you use to describe it here? :-P

if I walk out of direct sight of my wifi wireless router (few meters) and into the next room that only has a gyproc (plasterboard) wall my signal level drops by about 2 bars, if I go slightly further like dare to step out of the back door of the house which is only about 15 meters at most with that one gyproc wall inbetween but I'm still actually at the doorway, the signal goes off alltogether, same as if I go upstairs too.

 

The very frustrating thing is that the company refuse to even talk at all about any faults at all nomatter how many times I tell them they either just dont answer of just go onto another subject and then I go back to the question of the faults and they dont answer again, and in the end they have the cheek just to say "Bye" to me, hows that for customer service ? Total joke !

 

p.s

my wifi wireless router (sky internet) is not at fault as it works perfect with my laptop and my pc computer, infact with my laptop I can go for a walk about 50 meters up the street and still have a connection with my laptop, so that is enough proof to prove that my sky router is perfect.
