Summary: I love the idea of the tablet computer and this does work well but it is a bit slow and definitely not a complete replacement for a laptop or computer. If you just use the computer to browse and listen to music and watch videos this works fine but if i had to do it again i would have either saved up for the surface or kept my laptop.
Summary: I will be reviewing this tablet on Windows 8.1; it makes a big difference in the performance. I am coming from the perspective of a student; I use this device for taking notes in lecture, casual word processing in between classes and occasional online shopping. Before starting the school year, I decided that my Note 10.1 was no longer the device for me.
Great Buy, excellent multimedia and workhorse device

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.
