Default which tablet? and where from? so confused!!

I'm fed up of searching so i'm hoping someone can help

There are THAT many tablets i haven't a clue!!

I'm after pref a 9.7" Ive specifically been looking at the ultra light newsmy, cube u9gt and have seen some good things said about the Onda Vi40 which is the best? are there massive differences between any? I don't want one that's too thick.

Also there are so many scam sites out there, does anyone know one that's actually ok? with decent shipping times? because of this i am looking on alibaba.com as you suppliers are checked etc ut to use that i need to know which tablet to search for....

I'm thinking of getting my boyfriend a 7" as part of his b'day present aswell so if anyone has any suggestions on any good ones in that size would be greatly appreciated!!

STOP right there!!

I think the Onda devices are OK, however so many of these things from the Middle Kingdom are frankly more trouble than they're worth.

I strongly suggest you look at what reputable suppliers in your own country have to offer. e.g. Best Buy in the US, Currys, PC World, Maplin in the UK, etc.

You really want to keep your boyfriend happy, I'd recommend the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Agreed. Onda has a reputation for MP4 players, and seem to be trying to raise above the rest. I'd agree it's best to buy from a local supplier in your country for protection.

I've got an Onda Vi40, but it has problems and they are going to replace it here in China. Others don't seem to be reporting problems on the latest (version 3) model. I think I was just unlucky, and at least they are apparently going to replace it.

Look for evidence of support in different forums, both for the tablet and any supplier you choose.

Buying from China means you have none of your country's consumer protection laws. Buying from a local supplier should give you protection, even if just credit card protection.

Good luck in your search!

David.

Good advice!... I try and avoid cheap Chinese tech as much as possible.

The main problem with buying directly from China, is very often these products are intended to be sold in China and not exported. QC can be rather poor here.
