Already? WOW. it's a permanent price reduction so if they get more stock it should still be good. keyword being if.

hmm. it now shows in my cart, Shipping is a bit high though...

The Matrix One is out of stock; however, they have extended the deal so that the 7 and 7S are reduced in price to $60 and $120, respectively. These other offerings are pre-orders, though, so they won't ship for a few weeks. The shipping showed as $10 for me, but it looked to stay the same whether you were ordering one or a few.

No GPS.
Are these decent tablets?

vote-for2vote-against

Their site is giving 72 hours for pre-orders at the special price. Make sure you are selecting the Matrix One 7 and not the Matrix One (no 7) they are the same price ut the One 7 has better specs.

vote-for2vote-against

Before you buy the 7, compare it to their Matrix One 7S. For $119.95 (an additional $60), you get:

-double the RAM at 1GB (with Android 4, this will almost be worth it by itself)
-higher resolution screen
-20% more battery
-an A9 1.5Ghz vs A8 1.2Ghz processor
-double the storage at 16GB (SD card availability makes this less important)
-a mini-HDMI out port.

I always take these cheaper tablets with a grain of salt, but at least both unit's specs look decent for the pre-order price.

In for the Matrix One 7S, as is my dad and 2 co-workers....

Wow the 7s seems nice. The 7 says "rooted out of the box" is the 7s rooted too?

Did anybody else order one? I got the receipt but have not heard anything back for a couple of weeks. I called and it was an automated person and then went to voicemail.

vote-for2vote-against

I did order a few. When the order was first placed communication was very fast, it's slowed down recently but I got an e-mail 2 days ago (in response to one I sent) stating they will ship Oct 26 or earlier. That falls within the 3-4 week time period the website stated.

vote-for2vote-against

@gummydad: A web-chat w/ Tech support says the 7S will be root capable out of the box (along with an unlocked boot loader) but you'll have to load the SU app out of the app store, it doesn't come pre-loaded.

Also the tech support stated that CyanogenMod 10 is working on it and that JellyBean is in testing and will likely be pushed to the 7S by the end of the year

@randomtom: No I ordered 2 and have never heard back from them I have also emailed them and never heard anything back

@cybercowboy: Did you ever get yours as I have never got mine

vote-for2vote-against

@jwdevus: I haven't yet and while communications from them truly sucks I have gotten e-mails and calls from them.

Today they actually called me back from a Voice mail I left yesterday (I've left dozens this was the first they called me back on) Spoke with Cliff, he admitted the tablets have gotten hung up in customs. He said they orders 5-6 thousand units and customs is going to release them in batches, but that customs won't say how big the batches will be.

My order number was 853. Cliff told me that the orders still in holding start in the 4 or 5 hundreds. He said the first batch should be shipped no later than next week and they're hoping for yet this week. A co-worker has order #1658 and when I asked about hers he said it would likely be several weeks yet.

Basically communications sucks but I'm not ready to write them off as a scam (yet) I'm going to give them until the 9th and if I haven't heard anything do a chargeback.

According to Google as of today, November 14, Matrix One has had their account FROZEN due to their bad customer rating and the number of mediation requests that Matrix One is ignoring. They are ignoring a chargeback by my bank as well as my mediation request with Google Wallet. Do not walk but RUN away from this company and pass the word!

vote-for2vote-against

When you say "According to Google" do you mean you've been in communication and they told you the accounts were froze, or that you were googling for information and came across the info (if so can you link it?) I've got a number of friends/family who I now have to go to and advise to try to get refunds.

vote-for2vote-against

@amarea: Also what does google freezing their accts mean, will Google issue refunds then for those requesting it?

vote-for1vote-against

@cybercowboy: Meaning I have been in touch with Google Wallet today myself and they told me that Matrix One has had their account frozen due to the number of customer complaints as well as them not responding to mediation requests. I spent 20 minutes on a phone call with Google today since Matrix One responded to my request for a refund with "contact Google for a refund." Google will open a mediation request and if Matrix One doesn't respond (which they haven't been) then Google will refund your money. If you paid with a credit card (NOT a debit card) you are protected under the Fair Credit Billing Act. BUT you have to get your dispute in within 60 days so time is running out to be protected under this law!!!

vote-for1vote-against

Matrix One is saying they "stopped accepting pre-orders" when in fact Google Wallet has frozen their account. That is preventing them from both refunding people and from accepting new orders. I'm praying I get my money back. I'm a single mom and can't afford to be out almost $200 for 3 of these. They were supposed to be Christmas gifts for my kids.

vote-for1vote-against

@amarea: Please keep me informed on your refund. I have until the 29th based on my order date. I'm not sure why but I get responses from them fairly regularly (about every 5th I send gets a reply, but I send at least 3 every day) and they are still holding fast to the 20th as a ship date now. I'll give them until the 23rd to produce a tracking number and then cancel as well as have everyone else cancel if need be.
I hope everything works out. I agree their communications has been horrible, however I do work in a company that both imports and exports and so we deal with customs A LOT. I've run everything Matrix One has told me past our guys that deal with customs and they have said it seems legit. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying they are for sure legit, and Matrix One certainly should have better communications but as for the shipment being delayed in customs (that's what they've posted on their FB acct) I'm told yea it's completely probable. I still want the tab if I can get it

Google issued my refund today. They have officially removed Matrix One as an approved seller. They are not just frozen, they are completely banned from Google Wallet. After seeing the reports from people who have received previous orders about their warranty issues not being resolved, I wasn't going to take any chances. Apple is selling their refurb iPod Touch's for $129 so I went that route. Wal-Mart is also carrying a $59 tablet right now as well. All I can say is protect yourself.

Also, be forewarned... Matrix One is also Pacatek! Read the Terms of Service. It's WORD FOR WORD what Matrix's is. They also typo'd the original page for Pacatek which Google Cache saved a copy of here at this link: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:YNh0rUEdO1AJ:pacatek.com/shop/Terms-and-Conditions.html+&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

You can clearly see the MTX website address in their cached information.

I'm out. I made a claim on wallet and also disputed it with my credit card. Well..if it looks too good then it probably is...

vote-for2vote-against

I am out too finally Google Wallet should be ashamed of themselves for not refunding all of our moneys. And making us all go through all this crap during the Holidays.

I hope you were like me and paid with credit card very debit card or you are possibly screwed by not having your credit card company review and refund your moneys.

Good luck with Google Wallet

Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas. And stand please don't say Happy Holidays it is just wrong

@jwdevus: Only credit card purchases are truly covered. You have 60 days under the Fair Credit Billing Act to file a dispute. Debit cards are only covered under the Electronic Funds Transfer Act which limits your liability to $50 if you file within 2 days of the charge or $500 if you file before 60. Some banks DO offer their own limitations but those are what the federal consumer protection laws are.

As for Google Wallet, look at their position. They have had to freeze the account for Matrix aka Pacatek. What do you want to bet that Matrix charged all of our cards they day we ordered, slowly withdrew the money from September through October and then suddenly claimed "customs issues" once Google Wallet became aware of the issue (or once they were able to withdraw all the money). Google Wallet is now on the hook to protect us but where is the money coming from? Matrix or is Google footing the bill to make sure we are taken care of? Look up the ripoffreport.com complaint against Matrix

I backed out yesteday as well just filed a dispute with my CC and today they already reversed the charges its a shame I was hoping to get one for my kids

Looks like I came back to this site a little late, I am not in the window. Who did you call to refund your money?

vote-for1vote-against

@sskysshark82: If it's within 90 days of when you made the purchase you can get your money back directly from Google Wallet. Go to GW, find the transaction for this tablet and open it up. In the upper right click on Help and there's an option to request refund.

It is important when filling out the form to make sure to state that you have attempted to contact the company and they have been lacking in response. I got my refund 2 days after doing this.

@cybercowboy: Thanks ,my refund is on the way, really appreciate you and everybody on this site.

For any other stragglers Google wallets # is 1-855-492-5538. Very helpful.
