Bought one from Dixons .. Guess what powered on ... only had 18% of Battery .... Tried to use the screen ... Nothing happened !! Confirmed my fears what I looked at the Vega for marking and found a couple...

£199 = Refurb'd

Went out and bought one from PCworld, Chance'd it with the manager saying I could get it online for £199 and he gave me a manager's discount ! RRP : £230

Hope this helps guys


I've only just got my Vega so sorry if this has been asked many times but what makes you think it was a refurb? becasue the battery only had 18% they would have put a full charge on it anyway would they? and what sort of marks were they?

You can guess why i'm asking this, yes mine had 17% charge on it, can't say i've noticed any marks apart from a smallish one of the side near the ports and when i got it out of the box there was a very small bit (2-3mm) of white stick paper on it.

Could this be a refurb too?

Thanks

James

EDIT Oh great now they've gone down in price :-(

I think all devices with lithium ion batteries come with a bit of charge in them cos the batteries cannot stay in storage without it.

I just bought a Kindle today and there was a taste of juice in it.

Bought one new unit (software version 1.10) at Dixon Travel (Heathrow) yesterday for 167quids. Absolutely a bargain!

Love the unit. And Love this resourceful forum as well!

Could someone clarify what the warranty period is for a Vega purchased from PC World Business and where it goes back to during this period.

Looking at buying an Advent Vega soon and noticed the price has just dropped £40 at PC world/Currys, also they've stopped doing accessories (case, screen protector) do they know something we don't? :)

I bought another Vega two days ago from Currys. I wanted to purchase it from PC World two doors up, but they did not have the folio case for it in stock. I told the floor manager that I did not like Currys in general for their after-sale service. He smiled and told me that now being the same under a different name, if any troubles happen in the future to come to the PC World with my receipt and they would deal with it. He even put his name down on it.

Three weeks earlier, I had to return a Vega after 27 days. They even refunded the folio case. I had to press 6s to restart it just after a normal sleep.

The new one is some how faster and the screen seems clearer.
I installed the [Rom Add-On] Clean & Stable Add-On For All Stock Firmware V3[24/03/11][Full Market] http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=931337 with the small task bar.. and the ASW Honeycomb theme.
Fast and simple.

All the other Rom are to difficult to deal with. Just me. Dont understand all the techy words :mellow:
Too overwhelming to learn and understand. I would rather do others things than being indoor in front of a computer/tab trying to tweak it to get more or less the same results at the end.
I learned what flashing is yesterday when I installed the add-on Rom V3: put the zip on the sd card and click on it :o
Someone could put a lexic of the different techy words in here. Would be really useful for many new guys to android.

Its actually the other way around, Advent Vega is similar to Shuttle P10AN01.

Shuttle is the producer of all these tablets and then they are branded as Smartbook Surfer 100, pov Mobii, Advent Vega, WSL XVision, Viewsonic Viewpad 10s ,.....

Dixons duty free in Dublin airport had them for €200, which is well under £200.

Trouble is you need to fly out of Dublin to get one!

Dixons at Heathrow selling for £180 if anyone's passing through there - again, have to fly somewhere though! Believe other UK airports have Dixons Travel outlets too: http://www.dixonstravel.co.uk/
