Ok but.....if you don't mind importing, £14 more gets you a dual core AMLogic based 1024x600, 1Gb of Ram, Ramos W17 Pro, which will run rings around this....

No personal experience of the store, but run by some English guys I believe and I've heard good things.

Yeah but no offence that one you linked to looks awful.

I don't mind the look, I'd be more bothered about the extra bill from customs afterwards.

Lol, well what do you expect for £69! The allwinner A13 is one of the weakest off all the single core chipsets used in chinese devices and surely no one in their right mind wants to browse on an a horrible low res 800x480 display, the experience would just be painful, not even worth the £55 pricetag IMHO.

The Ramos W17 runs a Dual core A9 AmLogic chipset with a dual core mali 400 GPU, That clocks a touch higher than the the TI Omap 4460 chipset and even beats out the Exynos 4210 in certain benches, it also has 1Gb ram and a good (although non IPS) 1024x600 display.


You can't really tell me you would prefer to save £14 and have slightly better looking but vastly inferior hardware? They are both Chinese built anyway and probably of very similar build quality.

I don't mind the look, I'd be more bothered about the extra bill from customs afterwards.


I'm not sure where you are but every time I've ordered from China to the UK, there has never been any tax charged because the packages are often declared as 'Gifts' or at a low value.

Ah that was my mistake - I ordered an item from a store in the USA, they sent the wrong one, sent me a second one and told me not to bother about a return and then I got hit for import costs on both of them.

So their website claims it was £99.99 and is now £49.99...
So how come it's listed on Amazon for £59.99 with of mention of it being discounted?

Sounds like one of those temporary price increase sales?

Well, it's cheap 'n' cheerful, I went for one at the last minute -I'll let you all know what I think when it arrives

Well, mine arrived today. I was a bit sceptical at first as the packaging left a lot to be desired. Basically the tablet came in a jiffy bag with the charger, usb and usb flash drive cables all loose.

However once I fired the tablet up I was pleasantly suprised. I've not used it in anger yet but it certainly seems snappy and the screen is nice and bright. The touchscreen is very responsive too.

For £50 and as an Xmas present for my 6 year old, it definatelyt beats the cr@p I bought her from V-Tech last year.

Still waiting for mine though I got a card through the letterbox today from the post office so maybe that's it finally....
