Vigo 9.7 Android 4.0 Tablet
Anyone got an opinion on this Android 4.0 tablet? (Full specs at the bottom)
I read this set of opinions (quote: "so long as you get the version 2 device with dual core CPU and 8000mAH battery" - can't post a link, but you could google it) which says avoid the version1 model, but suggesting the version2 isn't bad. (That was at $300).
1day.co.nz have them at $149 today which sounds excellent for the price.
I checked with 1day live chat and the guy checked for me, and they are version 2. I was still a bit dubious, as to whether they were shipping out all the broken returned units refurbished, but the 1day live chat told me they are apparently brand new units direct from the factory.
I'm undecided whether this is a good purchase or not... seems the Quality Control isn't too good on them (GeekZone reply number: # 736987), so you take a punt on getting one with bad wifi or other problem.... but then the price appears to be exceptional for the spec. (in fact the GZ member in that post above thought it was good value at $299 - other than the problems!).
I'm actually tempted to buy two of them (if I decide to buy it at all), which has the added advantage that if one unit isn't acting like the other, you know that unit is sub-standard/faulty, rather than thinking it might just be what that tablet model is like! So you know whether it needs returning or not (unless both have the same fault! But that would be just plain unlucky)
So, what do you think? Worth a gamble?
Anyone here got experience of them good or bad?
Also does anyone know if this unit is on XDA at all? What model is it based upon?
