Tablet Help please . wanting to purchase

sturmeez, Jun 19, 9:27pm
one for my 9 year old daughter.I don't know alot about tablets at all!I don't want to spend any more than $400, but don't want something that's going to be rendered useless after 6 months.There is a Vigo 9.7" for $399 at Warehouse Stationery, however I can't find any reviews or information regarding this brand.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thanks.

in 6 months MS will release their tablet if nothing else, I'd expect a little price war. If you can't wait, I'd get a samsung galaxy tablet (trademe prices are around $400) dunno what the new price is.

Specs look ok.Go have a look.at it first, recommend looking at a second hand Ipad for similar price.But the vigo looks.ok.

I've got a galaxy tab, it's great.

However, wait for Microsoft to put their things out

Thanks, her birthday's in 3 weeks, so would rather not wait 6 months. Do you have any suggestions as to where I could find a refurbished Ipad!

Hey the Warehouse have the Samsung 10 inch 3g one for $599.think online only Samsung is bringing a newer version in so the retailers have been told to get rid of the old ones

we have an acer 10.1 inch tablet, wifi ,andrid find it great $399 I paid for it at xmas, We desided not to spend the extra for the 3G one as all our phones are internet so if we want the bigger screen we can just teather our phones to it, Love my tablet as its also my Ebook aswell , battery life is great , was not great for things like trade me but now more apps have come out so I can use it for trade me now to

hello there,
I've just bought this Vigo 9.7 tablet yesterday for $299.00 nzd at the Warehouse Stationary. Actually at first I was charged 399.00 but was able to get a refund of 100.00 since they made a mistake about the price.
Well anyway, I only had the tablet for a day and it started acting up on me. For instance, application keeps popping up even you don't used them. You don't even have to touch the screen. Also the YouTube application hangs up and automatically opens for some unknown reason. You can't update the YouTube application and uninstalled it. I tried doing factory reset but still the same problem.
As for the rest it's okay and fast. Battery life is almost 4 hrs give and take a few minutes depending on the work load. Charging is very long almost longer than the battery life itself.
Now here's what I really don't like, instead of giving me a new tablet, they told me that they'll have it repaired or be sending the unit to Wellington. It will take days, weeks or months, for short they are not sure. As for me, I'm screwed. What the Hell???!!!!, they gave a new meaning to the term warranty. I just don't get it. Why not just give me a new unit since they already checked it as a software problem.
I think Warehouse Stationary should have a look into this because they might start loosing customers if this is how they do business.

Microphone faults?

Absolute rubbish. In total I tried 3 - original plus 2 replacements. The Warehouse gave great support and I was willing to accept and try the replacements but in the end it was an unacceptable, useless product
