Talkiet:
jonb: Sale is still on until 9pm tonight but is not that amazing.  The Core M i7 10" 64GB tablets look good for US$285.  I wanted to get an Elephone Trunk for USD$66, but whatever combination of colour is picked it always jumps up to $88 - dodgy.  Bought from another Aliexpress vendor for $85, should be a decent 4G phone for approx $140 NZD.


I was looking at those Core M "i7" tablets.

Can someone convince me that "i7" in this case refers to the CPU and it's not a spectacularly misleading model name for the tablet? To me it looks like the Core M CPUs are well below the i7 level.

Cheers - N



Downside is you could get hit for tax(~$420 after conversion) making it closer to $550.

Most of the products have gone up in price prior to the sale. The 1111 sale price is pretty much regular price for some items and I've even found a few items that are more expensive on sale.

Most things I have checked are cheaper on gearbest.

Seems to mainly be decent deals on accessories that are 50% off and have not gone up in price much before the sale.

The redmi note2 TDD is way more than I paid for it in this sale, but if you want LED strips or pixels or pillows or small hand tools there are some decent deals. It seems my credit card has stopped working for me or alipay just doesnt want to pay, I have heaps of stuff sitting on waiting payment now.

Im waiting to see if the pending charge on the card goes away before I retry them. Thing with aliexpress is that it hits your card with one big charge and not a single one for each seller like ebay does so its harder to work out what really is paid etc.
