    Hi, everyone! I'm thinking of buying this tablet MG106G (for 325€ = $ for technology usually)

    There is almost no information about it on the web (other than their webpage). No reviews, nothing. So I'm turning to you folks! ;)

    Here are the main specs:
    Size 10inch
    CPU Freescale i.MX51 CORTEX A8 Frequency 1GHz
    Operate System Android 2.2
    Storage 4GB/8GB(Optional)
    Memory 512MB
    Ports 2 USB, 3.5mm stereo headphone jack, DC-in jack, TF card reader, 3G SIM card slot, MINI HDMI OUTPUT(support 1080P)
    Bluetooth Yes
    Camera 1.3 Mega pixel
    Dimensions 248.8*189.2*14.5mm, 0.85KG


    What do you think about it? The specs look good, but what can go wrong when buying a cheep tablet?

    I'm worrying about the quality of display. Is it possible that it has terrible viewing angles compared to other tablets?
    Or can such cheap tablet be loud and noisy?



    P.S.: Does anybody know the brand? Or does someone recognize the look? Does it sell by some other name in America?

    @skyzhuo268: Thanks for the link with the pictures! But I still don't get how can you know that it has good viewing angles? What's the processor got to do with display?

    @mattg3:
    You're right. What was I thinking... It's not cheap, rather cost-effective.

    Great - but I've got a few questions! ;)


    1.) Do you ship to Slovenia?

    2.) How much would such delivery cost - including: shipping, duties, and taxes - for Slovenia?

    3.) In case the tablet has to be returned (guarantee/repair) - where do I send it to?

    4.) And does it come with European 220V charger?

    Hi Jack,
    1) Of course we can ship to Slovenia.
    2) The shipping cost will be $31.48 via DHL, we will write less value on the invoice come with package, so you will not or pay less duties at your custom.
    3) This tablet is very stable in quality, it will have no problem, also we will double check before shippment to make sure the tablet works great when you get it. we sell hundreds of this model each month, and we always got good response from our customs, but for in case there is any problem for return, you need to send to our head office at Shenzhen of China.
    4) Yes, it comes with European 220V charger!
    welcome to order, hope you have a good experience in our site! thanks!:)

    Well, this is really nice!

    Do you sell any tablets with IPS (or even AFFS) display?

    I think it's better to pay more but to get a product of a decent quality. That's my personal opinion though but I would better wait and get myself a better one.
