Hey guys, I know i'm probably supposed to post this in the Window N90 II subforum, but this is about the N90 I.

I found this seller on AliExpress, and he's selling the N90 version 1, its also called R2000 for $168 USD, which is almost $30-40 cheaper than the rest of the sellers. I'm thinking of buying from this guy, but will he give me problems and will I have to chase him to ship it out?

Window N90 I for $168

Hi,

The R2000 is not the same as the N90 I, they are two completely different tablets. The R2000 is one of the new breed of rockchip rk3066 based tablets and is also sold by pandawill (see my first post here http://www.slatedroi...-RK3066-tablets) amongst others.

That seems like a very good price for the R2000 but I would be wary as the seller has no feedback. Better to go with a more expensive one from a reputable supplier like this http://www.aliexpres...holesalers.html

That seller is very likely con artist trying to rip you off.

All other sellers for R2000 sell it for $210-216+. How can that seller sell it for $168? That seller has no feedback or rating score. Which means he has sold nothing on AliExpress. I would avoid buying from him because very likely he will try to steal your money. PandaWill also has the R2000 for $228 w/free shipping.

The R2000 uses RK3066 which is similar to N90-II (Dual Core). The N90-I uses single core ARM chip (RK2918).

*MINIX NEO X5 (RK3066) - OK. Not fun because uses mouse cursor.
*YUANDAO N80 DUAL (RK3066) - Very good
*CUBE U30GT (RK3066)- Defective; buttons broke in 2-3 weeks; Bad quality control!!! I will never buy a Cube again!!! - Very good while working
*WOPAD I7 (RK2918)- About OK. Sluggish because has weaker ARM chip (RK2918) & less RAM (512 MB).

Doesn't AliExpress have buyer protection?

If it guarantees I get my money back even if it takes a month or two I'm willing to take the risk.

Yes, AliExpress has escrow. So, seller does not get paid until you release the funds to them. You can get refund if seller sends nothing to you. May take 1-2 months. Also, AliExpress may keep 5%.

For me not worth the hassle but your choice.

PS, if seller sends you some "other" tablet then you will likely have to ship it back to them to get your refund? But I am not really sure on that.

Phew close one i almost bought from a Mingjie chen and he said he only accepted Paypal, which I don't know how it worked because if you buy through aliexpress you have to use escrow
