Summary: This is an awful tablet. I will never buy anything made by lenovo again. I bought it to take notes for school and the damn thing starts giving beep codes in the middle of class. I had to send it in for repair. It still freezes up while in use. Do yourself a favor and just buy an Andoid tablet. Don't waste your time with this rubbish.
ZERO SUPPORT FROM LENOVO WHO's PROBABLY TOO ASHAMED OF THEIR PRODUCTS.

Summary: If I could give 0 stars I would. I got an unit that has the infamous touchscreen problem manifest itself after 2 months. Calls and emails to Lenovo were not answered and posting on the forums for support information got me banned. I am definitely never ever buying any of these Lenovo junk ever again whether for work or for play. I had never seen any big name companies that shriek their product warranty responsibility like this.
Unreliable. Useless tablet at key times when you need to use it due to wake-up failures.

Summary: Windows 8 itself was actually quite nice to use. The device was quite speedy. However, here's why this model is a terrible piece of trash. It has severe booting problems as well as key input issues. First, the longer you stop using the device, the longer it takes to boot -- and I mean simply turning the screen back on. This is clearly not a Windows 8 issue as it does not happen with my friend's Surface tablet. The Miix2 must have some sort of wake-up problem.
Summary: This was an okay product totally let down by Lenovo's incompetent software support. There's obviously some driver issues because for my set, the touchscreen will stop responding after a while that can only be fixed by a forced reset affecting the usability majorly. And this is something that's affecting quite a number of other owners going by a simple Google search.
Summary: We have had 2 defective tablets. The first one had a loose power cord connection and did not charge properly. The replacement unit that we got has an off/off switch that is "frozen" , and we cannot turn on the tablet.
Lenovo has the worst service I have ever encountered!

Summary: I dropped my Miix and cracked the screen. I spent $80 to send it in for repairs. It took them 5 days and hours on the phone to get them to acknowledge receipt of the unit once UPS verified delivery. When they finally did, the wanted to charge me $305 to replace the screen. I will never buy another Lenovo product.
It would be great if the wifi and bluetooth connectivity actually worked

Summary: I really want to love this device. I researched long and hard for a lightweight, portable full windows device that runs Microsoft Office and doesn't break the bank. I mostly need it for internet access (who doesn't these days???), especially to access Google Drive for work. Unfortunately, that exactly the bit that doesn't work. It took me a full three days to finally successfully connect the device to the internet, only to have it disconnect again on sleep.
Summary: I just received this tablet 2 hours ago and am now quite disappointed: there is a very sharp dead pixel right in the middle of the screen. Now Amazon's system hints the product cannot be replaced. I am wondering why! Adding on March 7: Amazon customer service has now agreed to exchange my purchase, so I am waiting for delivery of the replacement, and may probably modify this review after I get the delivery.
