Don't Buy It

Summary: I have had nothing but trouble with this. It won't boot. The tablet goes into repair mode then says the repair failed. I've had this for a 5 or 6 weeks and have called Samsung, who gave me b the run around saying they needed my receipt to show where I bought it from. The vendor who sold this to me doesn't have contact info on the receipt, so Samsung REFUSED to fix it. The tablet has never been used.
Summary: I am very happy with this little computer. It might take it a bit to load programs and to do updates, but once everything is up and running the performance is flawless. There are no lockups, freezes, or issues or any kind despite the fact that it is using only 2 gigs of memory. I bought this to replace my Samsung Note as a quick art sketching pad as Android and real productivity do not mix.
Summary: Looks nice, but then you notice the port cover won't stay closed. Then the real fun begins: poor response from the screen and constant lock-ups. Totally useless and wish I had used it enough early on to be able to return it. Now that I've used it, I'm tempted to discard so I won't be constantly reminded of my bad purchase. Add to all this that it has the "advantage" of Windows 8 and you are in for a bad ride.
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: Great tablet when it wanted to work... Too many system failures with an inability to re boot without being plugged in and then it was only maybe. Bought a Microsoft Surface instead... Samsung is on the right track... but they need to do something about the operating systems failure.
