I had a good experience with their support.. a bit slow and no feedback but eventually delivered...
I first opened a case on their lepan support site...
Someone replied after a week and asked me to give my order (proof) from amazon . Told them my warranty was expiring in 1 month (Nov 26th)... and they sent me an email with a 4 step proceduce to return it with a Case #.
Packed my tablet and sent it via Canada Post ( paid about $24 with tracking )... Didnt get any response from them... after 3 weeks I got a brand new tablet back.
i got my purchase fully refunded from amazon by jeff bezos after explaining the whole story to him, there were 10 calls to amazon seeking help,so level 3 support brought him into our call. plus a 100 $ goodwill voucher and they lepan just got back to me with no mention of steps to take to reply to them. They have my proof of purchase, visa receipt, amazon receipt, i have an rma, they even called me at home but indicated they had to clear it with their supervisor in order to mail the repaired product back to me. so they clearly don't have a set of procedures in place. however, i'm in a bonus position now anyway. i guess it depends on who you get i guess.

Boxing week sales. It's now $99. As long as you use 30days return period to test it deeply. Make sure it don't have any freezing, auto shut off issues....then....It is a good tablet with IPS screen. My 2 cents.

This is very encouraging - I sent my tablet back to them last week via Canada Post expedited.
Broken power button.
I agree that their customer service is not exceptional.
I opened a case on the Le Pan support website on Nov. 14th, and didn't hear back from them until Dec 13th.
After a few back and forth exchanges, they sent me a return number and the procedure needed to return.
Hopefully, like you, 'll get a replacement soon.

After over a year and my son plays it almost everyday, the Le Pan I is going strong. The life of the battery is excellent and the screen is still very crispy and bright. Have in mind of getting another one since it is now only $99 @amazon.ca.

well when ever I install mahong for the wife it freezes during the game after an hour. I guess it has to go back. Can't narrow it down to the app or the updated market. will they take a return and allow for the lepan 2 if I pay the difference?

and netflix is busto now too... but it's still a great tablet for $100 imho. very stable and it's a fantastic PDF reader... I recommend Aldiko pro (constant zoom page turns) for PDFS.

Neither Le pan nor amazon.ca will upgrade for you. They both want you buy a new one. Actually Le pan 1's 512m ram can handle simple job only. Uninstall mahong and see if freezes are gone. If so, then your tablet is a good unit. This is the best unit when use it as ebook/email reader, surfing internet or youtube player (720p or below). Advantage of slow cpu/gpu is your unit will have extra long battery life.
