One of My Favorite Tablets

Macy Banton, Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: The HP Slate 500 is one of my favorite tablets, in fact for my needs I prefer it to my work iPad that I have used over the past year. In my opinion the best thing about the Slate is that it is a tablet that works like any computer with a Microsoft operating system. I was even able to get mine tuned-up by remote technical support (which isn't possible on most tablets) because it has Windows 7 Professional as its OS.

Beware of Dog

Richard cosentino, Amazon
25 November 2013
  • Summary: This thing is a piece of garbage... Especially if you are trying to surf the internet. it runs so slow and jerky that it is almost unbearable. I almost never use it. It does however play movies well if you turn off all the services that take any resources. Also the camera takes nice videos and pics. I would love to return it and get my money back. Hp doesn't do jack about its lack of performance either.

Bulky, heavy, and hard to use for full windows.

Trent, Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: This tablet is heavy, but also very durable and well made. It is hard to use the pen digitizer accurately on full windows operating system. The tapping can also get quite annoying. If you're going to spend money on a full windows tablet, just get one of the asus ones. This is outdated and pre iPad.

bad tablet

arcticdog76, Ebay
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Not right for me. Sounded good, but ... stylus does not work properly with tablet. Multiple screen keep showing, freeze ups and hard even getting a web site "typed" on screen. Not recommended for everyday use. Got patience, try it.

  • Summary: Overall this things run very slow and hot as others have said. Now batteries are dead in 2 slates I bought. I was quoted $500 for a factory replacement. I don't think so.... time for a new tablet.

lasted one year

Jamshyd Fararooy, Amazon
2 July 2013
  • Summary: I agree with all of the good things said by the other two reviewers. I used the tablet for a full year for all the stated reasons. After a year the tablet started doing automatic screen touches which are really problematic and dangerous. (there are some articles on this on the internet). I tried a lot of anti-static solutions for a month but it got worse. I even started wearing an anti-static wrist cuff wired to earth bought from radio shack! looked funny.

Different Tablet When Upgraded

Juan dela cruz, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: Reading the specs and viewing the pictures, this tablet looks awesome. With Windows7 OS,this tablet is junk. I was ready to just lay it on my shelf and get dusted. But when Windows 8 came in, I upgraded the OS and this tablet suddenly became alive. It's amazing. It's like Clark Kent went into the telephone booth and came out as Superman.

Good product. Not that many apps are available for its OS

gkieu88, Ebay

  • Summary: Good device. Useful and pretty fast. High capacity and memory. Just pretty big if you are a fan of slim things. I like Windows 8 on this device. Recommend this for PC fans.

excellent only for Windows 7

foxuio, Ebay
1 April 2013
  • Summary: works perfect with windows 7 but still solid disk is a bit slow, windows 8 is a disaster, Broadcom Crystal HD does not work with adobe flash, windowsmetro requires a larger resolution if possible but quality is distorted and the resolution is expanded and reduced efficiency of graphics, the Windows application and the camera only shows the main camera, the buttons work only 2 of the 4, definitely was designed only for Windows 7 and go perfect in windows 7.
