I had a Tablo Quad (from the 2nd pre-order shipment May, 2019 very early order so one of the first latest gen quads!) that was at my brother’s place working flawlessly for 5 months straight then started to hang on a daily basis. After some debate w/ support I was able to RMA the unit and they sent me a replacement. I can’t tell if it is brand new or a refurb – it is sealed like it should be and the SKU sticker says the following:
TABLO QUAD ( R )
Model # TQNS4B-02-CN
(made in CHINA)
Any idea if the ® means it’s a refurb vs. brand new? Looks like it’s the -02 slightly newer flavor of the quad.
I’m planning on selling this unit as I bought a Dual Lite when the orignial QUAD failed so my brother could keep going. The dual lite has been flawless now for over 2 weeks straight and I got the replacement QUAD from the RMA and I will be selling this quad to a co-worker as I don’t need two at my house or my brother’s place. If it’s refurb I will charge a little less than if it’s a brand new unit.
Between myself, brother, and 3 co-workers we will be 5 Tablo users. 2 Quads, a Duo w/ 64 gb flash, and 2 x Duo Lites. We are all in Massachusetts and get about 45+ channels by pointing at a cluster of broadcast towers in Needham, MA that have everything we are after!
