I finally received my APad and surprise surprise! It rattles and you can feel and hear the insides moving around
The Apad does work for now but for how long before the rattling causes some serious damage?
Here is my experience:
1. Purchased the APad when it was advertising latest hardware, better build quality and custom firmware. Raz, I did place my order BEFORE you changed the main selling page so don't become defensive saying that you never advertised custom firmware for V3's BECAUSE YOU DID! You blatantly lied in another thread saying you did not
2. Supposed to have free gifts? A free stand and car charger? Some people received a wireless transmitter. Surprise surprise, I RECEIVED NOTHING! Yes, Nil, Nada, Nothing!!! Thanks a lot! A company that really cares
3. Special gift/offer because of inconvenience of no custom firmware and delays in order? You will receive this offer when you receive your APad. Guess what? AGAIN NOTHING! Yes, Nil, Nada, Nothing!!! Thanks AGAIN!!!
The packaging of the device was absolutely useless. The plain white box it came in with no markings, picture nor any type of attractiveness like MANY other sellers have, for example a picture on the front of the box of the device. This made it usless to re-sell or give to somebody as a gift because it looks cheap.
NO Bubble wrap to keep the device safe from being knocked around. This is a MUST for ANY and ALL companies selling and shipping electronic components.
I have ordered a number of these APad devices from numerous companies for friends and I ordered this from MP4Nation because it was the only 16gig device available at that time. MP4Nations packaging is by far the WORST of the lot and was the ONLY APad NOT wrapped in plastic bubble wrap to protect it during shipping.
This is NO surprise here that everybody is receiving defective devices because metal being knocked around during transit WILL cause damage to ANY device, be it an expensive Apple iPad or Cheap APad. So personally I would not blame it on these devices for poor workmanship but on the actual packaging and supplier themselves. Guys and girls, I've had numerous APads coming through me and again this was the only one with problems and I can say with confidence it's because of the poor packaging.UNLESS
MP4Nation can provide me with permission to open the device WITHOUT voiding my warranty to see if I can fix the moving innards or some sort of compensation or an absolute FULL refund including shipping costs for me to return the device to MP4Nation, I will be writing on every single Android site about my experience with MP4Nation, including re-seller and review sites warning absolutely everybody to stay away from this company. Copying and pasting my thoughts will take very little of my time but the loss of sales for this company will be long standing.
This is by far the absolute worst experience I've had ordering online with ANY company and believe me, I've ordered from many. I cannot believe the corners this company cuts to save costs and screw the customer which eventually leaves the customer with a loss. Absolutely disgusting!
To all the fanboy's on this forum, YOU WERE WRONG! I received a defective product after trying to be patient and I became yet ANOTHER statistic. You need to take a long deep look into your positive attitude towards this company and realize that they actually do not care about their customers UNLESS they can prove to me otherwise.
Lastly, Please understand my frustration. I tried to be patient but ended in total disappointment with a defective product in my hands.
I sincerely hope that MP4Nation can make this right
