very good tablet and thanks to seller for sending note too tell me so
7 September 2014
Summary: Bought for my granddaughter......it had been rebuilt, seller sent me note telling me not to let the brand throw me off was very good tablet.....and yes it is.....never heard of brand before but after ordering it was talking to a young man at doctor office he was telling me about him and friends for several years build robots so well that NASA, yes NASA had given them grant money....
Summary: Overall, this is hard to beat. I did a ton of research trying to get the best bang for the buck. This is basically a Nexus 7 knock-off and the specs are fairly identical. I don't have a lot of experience with Android so I'm not sure what more current versions have to offer but I'm happy with how 4.2 works. It plays video smoothly, both online and off of an SD card.
Pros: Performance is good. The touch screen is responsive and battery life is good. WiFi performance is excellent. It has a micro SD slot, HDMI output, micro USB slot. Full featured at this price point.
Cons: Running android 4.2. The back cover is a little creaky/squeaky. There aren't that many cases for this model/brand.
Pros: Price, the fact that it runs Android 4.1, dual-core processor, hdmi output. Runs apps smoothly. Very good value especially with the mail-in rebate. Not a high end tablet but a good basic model.
Cons: Battery life isn't great, and the battery indicator does not show the remaining time reliably. Also, especially when there are many equally strong networks available, the tablet sometimes has difficulty connecting to a signal. It seems to get confused when too many options are there.
Summary: Newegg customer service is decent, but Hisense is kind of slow and, base on my experience, do not resolve my issue properly.
Pros: Well-built, compares to its cousins from China.
Cons: It's considered "dead on arrival". It kept freezing and rebooting on itself constantly, which made this tablet completely unusable.I had to send it back to Hisense for repair/ replace service. After 1 week, they sent me another one/ same one which had an exact same issue. At this point, it was not worth to send back for repair.
Summary: some people complain about the screen. it's great IMO.
Pros: got this right before i saw the sero 7 pro (both refurbished). this is good, but for the $20 more, the sero 7 is a better deal.
Cons: no bluetooth / gps is a bit cramping my style.... gave it to my kid instead. usb cable is a bit fickle. 3rd party oem cables don't work very well. plus only works in certain slots on my computer. interference maybe?
