Don't have one myself but I've heard nothing but good things about teclast especially the X98, I'd go for it if I were you and you have the rock solid ft guarantee if it fails it's a no brainer imo.

Just had a look if they sell the X98 pro here and they do, you mays well buy the pro considering the specs and the minimal price increase.

My mom has the X98 Air II. The screen quality is excellent and build quality decent enough considering the price.
I think Teclast is one of the better cheap brands.
I have 2 Chinese brand phones: Oneplus One and Meizu M2 Note, both excellent phones.

Not long ago, inexpensive Chinese tablets always felt like using an iPad with ten condoms on each finger. I think recently though things have got much better.

I'd be very interested in hearing about how this performs if anyone actually gets as far as buying one.

was thinking the Plus because best of gear was it for like 189. but ive not heard great thing from them. For that price the plus seems sufficient enough, especially if i could over clock it. heard it slightly under clocked to handle temps and the pro thermal throttles, so im kinda thinking their very similar.

I have bought three tablets from China the previous 2 years:
- Onda v975m
- Teclast x98 air II
- Teclast x98 Plus (Windows).

Renown brands are too expensive for me. Would never buy a 500-600euro tablet, I don't think these products are worth that much.

Since I own the tablet you just ordered (purchased in early January 2016) my feedback is this

PROS
- SCREEN: Excellent, it is actually the Ipad Air's LG IGZO display. Will make you look down on anything non-Retina class.
- BUILD: Good quality workmanship, with aluminum back, which keeps it cool during use.
- WIFI: Very good reception, no interruptions during use, only 2.4Ghz frequency though.
- BLUETOOTH: in this model reception is excellent; when I do chores in the house, I tune in to my Youtube playlist, I wear my BT headset and move around the house: 2 walls apart at the other end of my apartment I still get excellent audio.
- eMMC drive: For this model there haven't been any incidents of unknown/bad brands used. Teclast has done a great job here and selections vary between: Toshiba (the best/fastest), Samsung and Hynix.
- BATTERY: This is actually one of the best performing tablets regarding autonomy in the 9.7" division. You are looking at full 9 hours of browsing etc.

CONS
- SOUND: quite tiny actually, it must be at 60-70% of the volume my other Chinese tablets had.
- OS: Windows 10 I feel is step back on Tablets compared to Win8.1
All the "extras" that Win10 has will drain your battery at idle at a much faster rate. My Teclast x98 Air II with Win8.1 would drain about 12-14% in 24hours...while the Teclast x98 Plus with Win10 drains the same amount in 12 hours (both with WIFI on).
Also more moves/gestures are required to do what you want to do.

Teclast tablets are some of the most popular, so you will easily find accessories compatible with it as well as a large community should you need help.
YOU WILL NEED A SCREEN PROTECTOR, since its glass is not scratch-resistant and it does not include a pre-applied screen protector.

I like the e-ink screens, but e-readers are ridiculously expensive to my mind, considering what they are offering...
- Install f.lux to limit blue light
- Get yourself a matte screen protector
and enjoy your multi-purpose tablet.

It plays games like Asphalt 8 Airborn without difficulty, and is still a great pdf reader (would recommend Xodo PDF Reader / Annotator from Microsoft Store (free) )
