Question

So does the charging end of the cord or on the tablet break?

So I keep seeing things about the charging port. What exactly breaks if it breaks? Does something inside the tablet break so it becomes unusable or does the cord get messed up so I just can use a new cord? I have plenty of Micro USB cords so I'm not concerned about that, but if the tablet itself would become broken, that's a different story.

It's a chance you take. It will either break or not. It took 5 weeks for ours to break. The port came out when I pulled out the charger. Did not use the charger it came with and it still happened. Was not because of carelessness. It's an issued with the tablet. A pain to get it resolved and just better to purchase something else.

I would not buy this tablet again, I don't recommend it either. My charging port (inside the tablet) broke and cannot be charged. I disagree with the statement that carelessness leads to this. My tablet was sitting on my nightstand charging, I then grabbed another one of my chargers and plugged in my phone and set that on top of the tablet. Doing so I bumped the cord going into my tablet (not even enough to move the tablet) and it sounded like it just popped. I didn't really think much about it as it wasn't loud or anything but in the morning when I went to use the tablet I tried to turn it on but it had no battery life left and died. I have not been able to charge it since.
I had the tablet about 6 months MAX.
The company is HORRIBLE, after many emails and phone calls (which generally is a machine recording that says they will call in the next 48 hours) and usually I end up calling at least 2-3 times before they call back (am waiting yet again after calling on 11/10/14 and 11/13/14.
I proved my purchase and sent everything back to them (on 9/8/14) and still do not have an answer or response from them.
Also if they said "If the issue with the tablets was user inflicted (damaged) or if we cannot locate an issue with the tablet itself; then you may be liable for a charge of $15+ (depending on the number of tablets) for the shipping and handling. We do not provide service for damaged units (however will provide a repair option) and apologize if this causes any inconveniences."
This is absolutely RIDICULOUS!! I would NEVER have bought this tablet if I knew the company was so horrible.

After reading reviews about the charge port, when I got my tablet I didn't use the charge cable that came with it. I used a charge cable I had from my old cell phone that is mini usb and it plugs in and out very easily and have no problems. The cable that comes with the tablet fits very tight so don't use it.

Don't use that monster charging cable, the spikes or nubs at the end of the charging bracket is to long, I'm going to take a dremel tool and grind them down and see how it works on a old cellphone I have. I think that is the most problems with the charging port being pushed in and or ripped out.

In our tablet, the charging port broke in 3 days. On the tablet itself, it fell inside in table. So when you go the connect the cord, there is nothing to connect it to. The tablet now has an empty "hole".

If you are tough on the unit when the cord is attached, I don't know of any tablet that can take that type treatment. The only reason the Ipad family is tougher is the cord and receptacle are wider at the junction and any shock or stretching is equalized a little better. Micr and mini connections can't stand too much rough treatment.

The port caves in, and it's NOT due to user carelessness. I don't know if the problem has been corrected or not. It might not break until after the end of the short 15-day return period. Mine broke after, but fortunately it was within the extend holiday return period. I returned it and got a Tab 3 instead.

answer 1
I have been using my M7 for over a year and have had no hardware or connector problems. I am careful when plugging or un-plugging the charge cable due to the issues others have had. I will say that the update process is difficult to manage, although it worked once. The Bluetooth must be the oldest version because it is also slow and very weak signal, often won't recognize headphones or speakers that were paired previously but now won't work. I have tried many times to move things to the SD card to save space but only a few apps can be moved. I now can not update the Google or the Android or Facebook because it tells me I don't have enough available space, and I have no music or pictures on my M7. Boy what a disappointment. I have purchased a Toshiba Chromebook and what a wonderful surprise, PLEASE go read about the Chromebook laptops, they are the new Must Have for all of us that are tired of all these problems and don't like Windows or Apple anything. I only use my M7 now to listen to Pandora with a Bluetooth wireless speaker. The speaker in the M7 is worthless. Another note that really disappoints me, I paid 69 bucks for mine, NOT ON SALE, this year Walmart has them on Black Friday SPECIAL SALE priced for 79 bucks. No wonder most people are shopping elsewhere. Don't know who the Management folk think they are fooling, but they lost me as a customer.

Mine is working well since I installed the manufacturer update, that solved the slouch performance.

Speakers, camera, and various ports work well.

I'm concerned about power connector failure and have been careful in that regard. I hope Monster works extra hard to address everyone's concerns. The walmart.com reviews could have been outstanding but for this one issue. I still believe it's a great tablet, one of my favorites.

Yet another update! Last night (1/18/14) the charging port caved in on my husband's tablet. Before that happened, the tablet had just stopped charging. I had seen the bad reviews complaining about the charging port, but figured others were just mishandling their tablets. Well I know my husband's wasn't mishandled, and I truly now believe there's a manufacturing defect. I also had an M7, and the headphone jack had been acting iffy. Probably a sign of things to come. Otherwise we loved everything else about the tablets.

I thought the return period had already expired, but when I logged into my Walmart account last night I was able to print a return slip. Today I went to Walmart and returned them. Maybe they extended the return period on these because they know there's a problem that might take more than 15 days to happen.

Even though they were covered by Monster's warranty, I decided to return the tablets and get my money back while I could. I didn't want to be putzing around with warranty claims and probably having to ship the tablets to Monster. Currently there's no other tablet we're interested in. We might again consider Monster tablets if we feel confident they corrected the manufacturing defects, and repurchase if we haven't purchased another brand.

I have to answer again. My husband also has one, and tonight his stopped charging properly. Nothing appears loose, but the cord has to be jiggled slightly to get the lightning bolt to appear on the battery icon. It's not the cord, because I tried my cord in his tablet, and the same thing happens. Now I'm wondering when it's going to happen to mine. I use mine more and charge it more often.

None specific for MM7 that I've found.

It has two cams so that's something to consider. And covers with elastic or rubber corner keepers might not work because of the placement of MM7's power button.

The universal covers that work best, as I tried them at Walmart, are the ones with a solid edge on only one side. The edge snugly keeps the tablet from moving but over time that will probably loosen up.

I'm currently using an M-Edge Latitude and I love it but the elastic keeper presses touches the power button. It hasn't been a problem but could be over time.

If you just want a sleeve to keep it in, you can get that anywhere. If you want a leather type case that it will be in all the time with a flap that opens, you'll want to find one specifically for the M7. All tablets have the ports on the bottom in different places and since the M7 doesn't have the USB port in the center, it may get covered up by some cases. Also, the M7 has the speakers on the back so some cases have cutouts specifically for that.

You are correct and there seems to be no solution. I posted a good review for the tablet after using it for two weeks. The problem with not being able to load on an external card is a major drawback. Also the usb port on the tablet is defective. It does not seem to be mounted very sturdy and moves around. It became impossible to charge. I will return the tablet and will not get a replacement! It is a shame because in all other respects it is a good working tablet.

You can transfer the games to the NandF card or whatever it's called. I think it's under settings. It's the same place where you're looking to see how much space you have. There are tabs that show what's downloaded, what's on the internal memory, and what's on the card.

From the same settings thing, you can go to each app and choose where to store it.

One of the reasons these tablets are cheap is the limited internal storage they have. Google Mobile Services products that retain personal information about a user are stored internally. So long as you keep your tablet locked then Google knows all about you. It's an evil genius's world where your every move and thought is documented.

And NAND storage is a form of flash memory which is also cheap and it has limitation. It may take a while but NAND will 'fill up' eventually. If you install and uninstall programs then your tablet's NAND will 'fill up' sooner than a more passive user.

So tablets are good for Internet and email. M7 is good with programs that need expanding microsd storage. For example I use the M7 as a GPS and GPX tracker with offline maps stored on various microsd. I can store sets of map data on as many microsd cards as I wish to track movements and analyze data over time. And still, over time NAND will force me to replace this M7.

There's at least 12GB available on the NAND Flash SD storage on a new tablet. The pages in the app manager for many apps you download will say move to SD card. Click that and it will move the app to the NAND Flash. If the option to move isn't there, that's because the developer of the game requires it to run from the internal storage. I moved UNO & Friends to the NAND Flash and it works fine.
