Thumbs down Order from China blues, early adoption not easy

This thread was very informative and another big reason to be careful.

I bought:

aliexpress.com
G01 10.2'' 10'' Inch Notebook Tablet PC,Tablet laptop,Mini PC,Touch screen, MID, UMPC, with ZT-180 1GHz CPU, 256MB Memory,Wifi from Sinoband Co. Ltd.'s store.

I'm out $38 on a return from the United States after buying a 10" android touchscreen from SINOBAND CO. LTD. I received the product with a non functional touchscreen. I hooked up a mouse and downloaded a android benchmark program. The processor reported 300mhz, had android 1.5, and the sold product stated it had 1 Ghz. I was the victim of a bait and switch on top of a non functional screen, so I had to send it back. Why should I pay return shipping? Additionally on the return they are refusing to receive it?

I don't think you should, I don't know Chinese law, but if I remember correctly in Hong Hong consumer laws are very similar to EU ones.

Chinese consumers have the right attitude -- never trust the brand (it may well be a fake anyway), but trust the store where you bought it. Then you can go there and make a racket, the only way to get justice. Forget the consumer rights laws unless you have suffered actual physical harm and can get the word out to the media, it doesn't matter what the law actually says in China, try suing, LOL. You are at the mercy of the seller. That is why I can only advise people, again and again, not to buy directly from an unknown Chinese source, no matter how tempting. Or if you do, be prepared to take a serious risk that you will just lose your money, get total junk or get nothing. If you can get it through a company where you live, then you can always take it back.
