Summary: Shipment came in on time. There is just so much wrong. Internet very rarely works. Every time I turn it on, it has to process something. The apps, you download, don't work or work really slowly. The keyboard works when it wants. The audio works well. I wanted the tablet for school, and made a poor choice. Most of the work you need to download is through word processor which you have to buy it extra. Within the few weeks I've had it, I've had to reboot it several times.
Summary: Great tablet as long as you know you are buying an atom core tablet, not a power powerful i5. The atom core runs great, and has much longer battery life then the i5, but the i5 is much faster. I choose this tablet for the battery life and i am fully satisfied with the speed of the atom core.
Summary: If you plan to use wifi with this computer, don't waste your money on this piece of junk. It loads so slowly that it's quite worthless. I bought this for my son to use for school because all of his text books are on-line this year. It takes way to long to load a book. It uses ALL of the wifi in our house so nobody else can get online. He is very frustrated by the amount of time he wastes waiting for books to load and I'm furious that I wasted my money.
Summary: Just don't, really. Its garbage. I hate it. I want to sell it, but I would have to pay people to take it from me. I HATE HATE HATE HATE x100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 this thing. If it tries to talk to me one more time I will throw it way... actually I want to break it into a billion different pieces, strap it to a missile and shoot that back to Samsung If you didn't catch the fact that I hate this object of mass annoyance, then you're mentally...
Summary: This is not a technical review, just a few comments about it from someone used to a PC. The tablet works ok, the keyboard sticks and the touchscreen can be a bit temperamental. Windows 8 is a plus and the 4G is surprisingly convenient. I thought about returning it because of the keyboard and the fact that it crashes more often than it should, but I did not find a suitable replacement. I am sure a better version of this one will be out soon, but I needed a tablet now.
Summary: Great full featured convertible. Can do real work on it because of keyboard and capability of running full MS Office software. Great connectivity. You'd spend $100s more for an IPad or Surface similarly equipped. Very handy for travelling.
Summary: just what I wanted. The keyboard connection is indeed the weak point as other reviewers will state. That wiggles, and you basically cannot use the keyboard in a moving situation like a car or plane. That needs work. But, the tablet is great. I was unsure how Windows 8 would be, but it is really a nice product, and ties all the features of a tablet, desktop, notebook into this one device.
