Summary: It is a decent product with good specs and several connection options. However it is unit fiddly and not always responsive. I liked the style, size and specs. I did not like the time it takes to start, freezing issues and need to fiddle with it for updates etc. On top of everything else the seller was not very useful and had to pay tax to customs.
Summary: Took ages to arrive as coming from China. Nice tablet with good screen etc. The down sides are obviously limited support for any issues you have. I wont buy one again as have had battery issues with it for ages.
Summary: Bought this for my wife's birthday, wanting something with a decent enough spec and IPS screen. Naturally, there are caveats to buying a 'cheaper' brand such as Ainol, yet this tablet really is excellent. I researched a few competing products before choosing this model, and primarily went with the brand because of the excellent dev following/support out there.
Summary: It's a very good product considering the price paid for it at this moment, It's not a top tablet, but a good standard tablet, with a decent answer but without any firmware and software updates. If you are looking for a medium - high level tablet with brand manufacturer assistance, it's not your tablet. Good seller, very good communication y quick delivery.
Summary: I purchased this as i was looking for a decent 7inch tablet for my 9 year old son, I have the Nexus 7 and he is mad for it and to be honest after a quick flash of the ROM this looks and feels like the nexus - even is registerd on the play store as a nexus 7 which is sweet. The unit feels solid and have hdmi out and external SD card (better than my nexus7) It is set up and ready to go and I think he will have a ball with it. Great product and would buy another.
Summary: This is the second Ainol tablet I have purchased (the first having been passed to my son) and I have been very happy with both of them. The Aurora II is noticably faster than the Elf but both are good enough for anything I have thrown at them, including the various graphics intensive games my son sometimes uses his for.
Summary: The unit is well built, fast, very fast. It does get a little warm after a short time but nothing undue. The touch screen is very responsive and the display is crystal clear. WIFI was easy to set up and worked well. So why only two stars..... With 30 minutes of use the display started to flicker and then when blank!! First though the software I was running, turned the unit off and back on and the problem seem to have cleared.
Dissapointing product but excellent customer service (DrakoTek)
4 November 2012
Summary: Bought this tablet from DrakoTek which was shipped from China (takes 7-10 days), arrived well packaged in bubble wrap. The tablet arrives in English which is great although some of the apps are in Chinese. I didn't know what they were so just left them be. The browser and speed are great, on wifi there were no issues with connection dropping out or buffering issues from youtube via the browser. I didn't use this for iPlayer so not sure it if was compatible.
Summary: The Ainol (unfortunate name) Aurora 2 offers a very high specification for an entirely reasonable price. Googling the tablet will get you many reviews and posts from people complaining about the issues they have had. There is no denying that these issues do exist but it is important to understand that most (if not all) are software related. The good news is that this is easily fixed.
Summary: I received this device about a week ago and I'm very pleased with it so far. It was shipped from China so I had to de-install some Chinese apps which took all of 10 minutes. Google Play was pre-installed on build 0705 of the Ainol stock firmware, so far I'm not inclined to reflash it as I've had no problems installing anything that I needed (so far). Performance is very good - the screen is excellent, wifi is fine, battery life is as expected.
