To shed some light on how they get away with it.
To pursue a foreign business for false advertising, you must do so under Maritime law in the jurisdiction of a regional court. By which, you must site the UCC they are in violation of that is endorsed by the international trade agreement between your nation and the homeland of the company in question.
Obviously 99% of people wouldn't know where to start when it comes to reporting a company and pursing a suit under international law.
Because Barack Lombada has opened up the flood gates for China to overtake our economy, you can guarantee the FTC has been given orders to stand down in regard to holding companies accountable.
As it is, we all see the junk that has slowly surfaced over the last 5 years.
I can open up a mouse I bought 3 years ago identical to one bought this year and out of the same plant to see in the new:
wire as thing as hair
no more sockets
no screws holding the PCB in place
less PCB mass and layers
Sloppy SMD placement, grain high led content solder
etc. etc. etc.
All that aside I wouldn't buy another ATM device over the $100 mark.
I'm happy with my ATM7029 but this has been a really informative thread.
When I get a new device, it will definitely have a Rockchip instead which I am shopping for at this very moment.
According to any app I use that scans my Ainol Eternal, it has a Mali 400 which this thread seemed to indicate could not be the case?
Maybe I'm mistaken as I am not up to speed and competent in this subject matter.
I'm an electronic engineering major so grasp it better than most but the configurations of these devices, kernel languages etc. are not within my current knowledge.
Anyway, for $165 shipped with every option outside built in 3G I think it was worth the price.
My games run great for the unit being a 3 legged dog by most accounts.
I'm glad I went back over this though.
I was already leaning towards the Rockchip models but because I was happy with the ATM, had a bunch of those saved in my shopping list too!
