Summary: I'm actually writing the review from the tablet itself and wanted to time to "brake it in" before I gave it and honest review After about a month of relatively constant use I can say this tablet meets "all" of my expectations. My initial purchase was looking for a mobile art tablet that I could use for work as well as for the rather long trips I take on busses and trains.
Summary: I just recently picked up Samsung Ativ model and had to compare to my families Ipad. Samsung Ativ has a much larger screen, thinner in size and high definition graphics. Its extremely easy to use and set up and my whole family has been using and enjoying it so much. I am just doing a comparison to the Ipad and Samsung Ativ so far has won me over in size, comfort and screen. We also got a key board which was also easy to install and use.
Summary: This is an awesome tablet! I do photography part time and this tablet works great for showing photos to clients. It is a nice size but not too big to carry from location to location. I love that it has a stylus pen and although I am not a fan of Windows 8 per say, it does respond very well when moving in and out of programs. The added keyboard is a big plus and having 3 full size USB ports when using the keyboard is really nice.
Summary: I really wanted to believe in Samsung. They've done a great job with TV's but I think that's where it ends. I bought one of these (not from Amazon, sorry) because all of the good reviews. It was trouble from the word go. The first the machine did was prompt me to accept the "SW updates", which it does regularly. Unfortunately the update rendered the machine useless. Similarly, it was also a Samsung update that screwed up my Galaxy smart phone.
Summary: Had this product a few months now and its simply the best. Its very mobile without feeling any bulk and its the perfect thing for school (thats the main purpose of purchase). I mean it does not have the greatest specs for performance, but I dont need it for great performance. Thats why i have a laptop to run games, movies, graphic design and much more. Overall i would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a light weight tablet for on the go.
Summary: I returned this unit. It was terrible and was obviously not new but was refurbished. It did not boot correctly and it never recognized the 4g lte microsim. Make certain you check out all the tablet deals. This one isn't even close to the best model or price.
Once you get it set up and get the hang of using it this product is great.

Summary: This product does take some getting use to, the nuances of the touch screen and accessing the programs takes a little while. The only downer is that despite its claims Microsoft Office does not come with this product. You must buy it separately.
