Got my tablet and cradle earlier today. 2 seperate packages. I havent had much time to mess with it so far, but almost everything seems pretty nice. I like it. Only got 2 minor gripes, no printed instruction manual, and the speakers are really not so hot. Maybe i'm spoiled from a previous tablet I had that was rather nice, but these are really soso. Barely soso. Anyway, other than that, it is pretty good so far. Worth the price for sure.

You can track your order by reference at www.fedex.com though.

https://www.fedex.com/AltRefTracking?cntry_code=us

Enter your order number in the Reference field, along with country and zip code, and the tracking information will be shown.

Please keep in mind that our shipping cut off is 11:30am CST for overnight orders to be received the next day. If you placed your order after that, you should get your order tomorrow.

As always, feel free to email service@woot.com with any questions regarding your order.



This does not work for me, and I placed my order before 9AM EST. I received my cradle yesterday but nothing else. When a Woot rep got back to me yesterday they said that my item shipped and showed as delivered, I responded to them that it was my cradle and not the tablet and have not heard back yet.

I received an email telling me my item shipped overnight and once again it was the cradle, none of which helps me get my tablet. I am getting ready to leave on a trip and am quite unhappy with this mixup.

Tablet tip. . .Buff a little RainX windshield treatment on your tablet to keep fingerprints and scratches at bay.



the shipping killed the deal - they were charging $6 for shipping per case..i wanted to order 2 but they were charging $12 - what a ripoff

you can try running the Dead Pixel Detect and Fix app(free download from the app store)..and if that doesn't fix it you should contact sony customer service to find out what their policy is regarding dead pixels and see if they will replace it.

I'm not sure about sony but some manufacturers consider one or two dead pixels to be "acceptable".

Ordered 8/3 8a, tracking # email came on Sun 8/5 but w/o any detail; 2 boxes showed up on Mon. $5 reg. shipping from TX to AZ. That's awesome.

My 1st tablet. Display great. Sound quality poor, but I'll try earbuds as someone suggested. Next Woot!??

Can't get any apps from Google Play. Error message: Play has stopped working. Huh??? Any suggestions?

Got my shipping confirmation this morning telling me mine will be here on the 10th. Fingers crossed that SmartPost gets a little smarter and comes sooner.

No hate, all love! One big Wooty community!

Just got mine delivered - regualar shipping. Both in the same box. Working with it right now...the ICS won't download, but I have to work and will play later. So happy! I thought it would be a little wider, but it's really comfortable to hold.

Edit: Downloading update now. I wasn't connected to right network.

Here's a link to the Sony S1 support site addressing the issue with the Google Play Store and how to fix it:

mine is shipping from AZ, ordered the tablet with standard shipping at around 10a, shipped yesterday (the 6th). anticipated delivery by this Friday. Don't forget to put your tracking number into fedex, not USPS if you are still getting no shipping info.

I ordered 2 Tablets w/Cradle and today I received a package with only the cradles. Where is the tracking information for the Tablets?

I got mine yesterday and updated it right away. Then I realized that there are two very prominent dead pixels. I tried using an app to flash the screen for a half hour in case it was just stuck but no luck. Woot has no replacements available. Any other ideas on how I can fix the screen? Should I contact Sony for a replacement?

I am in the same boat. I ordered with expedited shipping for $13. I got the cradle yesterday which shipped with the only tracking # woot gave me - Fedex. My order confirmation says the expected delivery date is the 7th.

I live in Memphis and what may have happened is that they shipped the cradle standard with Fedex and shipped the tablet expedited with UPS or USPS. Then the standard shipping went out of the Fedex hub in Indianapolis and arrived at the Fedex hub in Memphis in 1 day. The "expedited" shipping may be making 3 or 4 different stops before it could get to Memphis. In that case I should have paid $5 for the regular shipping with Fedex and received both tablet and cradle yesterday.

Having the cradle with no tablet is such a damn tease!!

I got my tracking numbers by Monday morning, but when I check the USPS web site I get this for both tracking numbers:

Delivery status information is not available for your item via this web site. A return receipt after mailing may be available through your local Post Office.

What does this mean?

Thank you. The link was wrong - it took me to USPS. I went over to FedEx and found it there. I dislike Smart Post . They say the 14th - but I hardly ever get Smart Post when they say.

Thanks, for letting us know about the link being wrong. I was so excited thinking it was coming soon. When I went to Fed Ex, They say mine is planned to be picked up on the 5th, but don't even have it marked as being picked-up yet, much less having a tentative delivery date. I guess I am playing the waiting game. It will be much harder to keep my husband from seeing the package this way.

got mine today.. both tablet and cradle together in same box...

for those that are still concerned, I never received a shipping confirmation and it still says awaiting shipping on Woot site. so just cause it doesn't show anything for you is no reason to worry.

the fedex link & order number shows it fine though

I paid the extra $8 for quicker shipping

I sincerely doubt that any manufacturer would offer to replace a display with only two (2) dead pixels. In some cases I have seen where manufacturers will replace with 5 or 6. When buying anything with a display you should hope for the worst (5/6) but hope for the best (0).

This may help ...check Newegg's policy on dead pixels:

One Last update. Was able to mess with mine more today. Got it updated, etc.
The sound isnt quite as bad as i feared. Under the google music app, you can access settings and adjust the equilizer to improve quality, I have mine on heavy setting. Anyway, can also download other equalizer widgets and apps to help improve sound too. Also the speakers improve with something to deflect off of in back, if youre facing the tablet, ie- hands, etc. Anyway, once you get your tablet , good luck with them.

I just received the box and the only thing in it was the cradle. I see in an earlier post that the tablet and the cradle come in two different packages??? are they both shipped at the same time? do some people receive the two packages at two different times? and how far apart do the two packages arrive?

I only got shipment of the cradle as well. It would be nice to have a email notification that I should or could expect them in different packages. I have not received any more emails about another tracking number so I am still uncertain where I stand with the shipment of the actual tablet.

I ordered...Sony 32GB 9.4" Tablet S with cradle

I received the cradle today via USPS
When I tried to check status on the 2nd tracking # it comes up no locate??

Since I assume this is for the tablet and I cant track it, I would like to know how to track shipping status for the 32GB Tablet

So jealous of you guys getting your tablets already! I only have one tracking number, so Im really hoping its for the cradle, and my tablet will arrive before. Wishful thinking, I know haha. I find it odd some of you are getting it USPS and some FedEx, and some separate boxes and others together. My tracking was for FedEx.

Can not wait to get this! Please post your reviews and impressions as you get your tablets I went to Best Buy and spoke with someone about this tablet, blatantly telling him I got it off of Woot and he was just happy to talk and said great things about this tab, which makes me feel a bit better about my purchase.

my recommendation to those that haven't received anything is to wait till Friday and if no new info(tablet hasn't arrived) they try emailing Woot support, I am not sure how often they check this forum after the deal of the day is over

So far I really like the tablet. Speakers are plenty loud for me (havent taken it out to louder areas, just has to overpower my surround system, which is does well when TV is at a normal listening level). I do not like the charger, stays pretty loose when connected to tablet, and its kinda awkward using it when plugged in in landscape mode... This tablet was definitely designed to be used in portrait mode and holding it in your left hand. Everything I have run on it has run extremely well. Havent tested battery extensively yet, but I did have it playing music from amazon cloud for about 30 minutes, and it only used 1% of the battery.

I remember some people asking about the charger, it uses ~1A AC in, and outputs 10.5V at 2.9A (30.45 watts) which is a lot more than USB2 (5V at .5A), so usb charging probably won't do much, I will test it overnight to see if usb charge can trickle charge (may take a couple days to charge this way, but still would be nice)

I love Fed Ex. It has already arrived in Massachusetts, but it says it will be delivered in 3 days. They just like to sit on items sometimes.
