I just spent more money for the old Oasis
« on: November 13, 2017, 11:05:40 AM »
I just spent more money for the old Oasis at Amazon than you can buy a new one. My wife and I each have an Oasis I. Hers has been having some problems, but not enough to call Amazon. I don't like the new Oasis at all. So I found that Amazon was still selling the old version of the Oasis I (only wifi and with specials). If one of ours goes bad in the future, I wanted an extra. I don't like the way Amazon is headed with the Oasis II if it is any indication. so I paid Amazon about $40 more for another Oasis I.

Recognize that the first Oasis came with a cover.

The current model does NOT so if you want the Amazon cover that will add $45 - $60. There are third party options beginning to become available for significantly less.
