    After reading the alarming Sticky at the top of the page I wanted to open a thread where we could ask questions and/or make comments about this topic.

    How can one be absolutely sure that their chinese tablet of choice is not an illegal one?


    I just purchased a Chinese tablet from a company in Canada that offers a 1-year warranty on the product. That made me feel safe to buy it. But is that enough?

    Personally, I'm very, very new to learning all this tech stuff! And I just jumped right in but am learning as I go.

    It really doesn't matter where the item is sold. If the tablet hasn't been sent through the FCC for approval/certification, it's not legal in the US. Plain and simple.

    Okay, that's one good answer. So how do we figure out if it's been approved? How can we tell before we purchase it? Is there a way?

    I`ve just bought a MEIYING M10 from China and am so happy with it, connected to my WiFi straight away, can send emails, download apps etc and have ordered an 8g TF card today for more storage. I do hope others who have purchased this model can sort out their problems because this model is really good.

    I don't see any FCC Registration ID/label on my tablet, purchased from Frys Electronics in the U.S.
    What's the FCC ID on the Google Nexus 7?

    An individual can import electronics from China for personal use, so no worries about fcc certification.
