Quality Control Failure At Ramos

Ramos made a commitment to quality, investing heavily in retooling their manufacturing processes to create a new line of tablets with precision-machine parts.

In an advertorial post at ZOL, they boast about it [Google English].

Meanwhile, as reported at 1Pad PadHz, people are beginning to get their hands on the new flagship tablet, the Ramos i9 and experiencing light leak issues [Google English].

While 1Pad is dismissive of people complaining, saying it’s all being exaggerated, this is simply unacceptable. It’s going to be interesting to see if Ramos now lives up to their improved warranty and acts like Amazon would, swapping out these defective tablets for new ones.

Overall, Ramos seems to have bitten off more than they can chew. The Ramos K1 is in very short supply, making me think they’re having a great many assembly problems leading to quality issues they haven’t yet been able to solve.
