Exclamation Quick poll: Was Your G - Pad's Box Sealed? I Think i Know Why Some Were Not..

Hello Mates..
I have a theory as to why a lot of G Pad 8.3's are being received with "Non-Sealed" boxes...
I believe it's because they made every box with a picture of a *White* G-Pad on the box !
Even though the label does say "Black" or "White" who the Hell reads labels..

Mine was purchased Saturday during the $279.00 sale at BestBuy and the store was busy as heck.. A Samsung rep asked if he could help me, so I told him what I was waiting for.. He grabbed a key and brought up a unit in one of those "Theft-Proof" plastic cases and you could clearly see the box looked like it had already been opened, and someone Half-Assed sealed it back up.. this was visible even in through the Theft-Proof case.

I said " Dude.. first of all I said I wanted a *Black* one you can see on box it's white (the label was not visible..) and second, you can see the box is already open.. Please have someone get me a new unit in Black". Their computer said they had 2 in stock for sale.. No one could find the *Black* ones.. So the Store Mgr got involved and the search was on!

30 minutes later someone finally figured it out and actually LOOKED AT THE TABLET instead of all of us looking at the picture on the box and NOT reading the label which clearly states the color...

Me thinks, That's what Vendors are doing.. peaking in to see what color the units are and not reading the label.

I blame LG for this... you should have used a corresponding colored picture with your Tablets.
MAHDI'S "CLASSIC" 5-20 ROM WAS THE BEST COMPILE EVER FOR THE G-PAD 8.3...


AND CLOUDY'S PORT OF THE G3 MAKES MY G2 THE FINEST IT WILL EVER BE ...

UK buyer and mine was missing a security seal.

Didn't realise until i had walked out of store when panic set in. Quickly checked the tablet, box, cables etc and no sign what so ever of use. Checkex box and found no evidence of a previous seal.

Unusual in this day and age

None of the ones at Best Buy were sealed when I got mine. When I noticed that the one I picked up wasn't sealed, the guy went back and looked for one that was and couldn't find any. However, he did find a black one that he didn't know they had and brought it out saying, "Hey, didn't you say you'd prefer a black one?", so it worked out for me overall in that sense! Still, it's weird that so few of the boxes are sealed...

So those dunces boxed up the tablets with no indication on the outside what color they were? They all had to be opened to check?
