Summary: I have had 3 Kindle's: paper white, the first color Kindle, and a Kindle 7" HDX. When I saw this HP Slate 7, I thought I'd try it. What a disappointment! First, I had very very few choices of cases, second, with use, it only holds a charge for a very, very short time, that little short cord on the...
Summary: purchased directly from HP. Very slick. Impressive sound through headphones. Good HD quality with broadband. Found a great cover. Cons: slow to load web-pages even on wifi, T-Mobile coverage in my area is very poor, and doesn't work at all unless I turn off the wifi, which caused a bit of confusion...

Summary: seller was great even contacted me to see if i liked the tablet, tablet ok for the price but froze up a lot and is slow. doesn't do all the things my samsung does. good for a basic cheap tablet but you get what you pay for
Summary: I bought this one in July, 13. It was satisfactory until about late August of 14, when it became difficult to charge. The charging port was loose, and now it wont charge at all. HP wants 79 bucks to fix it, and it isn't heavy enough to use for a paperweight.
HP Slate 7 in works ok, but I wouldn't buy it again.

Summary: HP sent me an email ad offering free mobile data for life on the T-Mobile network. I looked at the cost and thought this might be good for the occasional use. The data is free for life, but limited 200MB of data per month. The first unit I received soon developed hardware problems.
Summary: I rented this tablet brand new from Rent-A-Center for two weeks just to try it before I bought one. I was very pleasantly surprised. On one hand, it is an awesome performer. Runs any video and/or game I threw at it without a single hitch.
Summary: The HP Slate 7 is a quality tablet, with the Extreme priced under $200. Is the Beats Special Edition worth the extra money? In short, I don't think so. Right off the bat, I love the color and the feel of the case. Hot rod red.
Summary: This tablet shines in audio, as expected. The sound of someone's voice comes through clear even sitting in the room next door. It doesn't sound muddled or faded. Could easily play music through this tablet for everyone in the house to enjoy no matter where they were.
Skip the Beats and save $70 with a similar product from Nvidia/EVGA

Summary: This is a nice performing tablet that unfortunately has an expensive and unnecessary feature that adds $70 to its price tag: the Beats Logo. This product is otherwise identical to the much less expensive and I recommend looking at that one over this overpriced model.
