Can't use Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse at the same time!!!
6 October 2014
Summary: Runs rather slow but does everything I need it to do....more or less. The only problem that I have so far is the following: 1) Resuming from standby mode, my bluetooth mouse and/or bluetooth keyboard has trouble reconnecting. Its not a problem with the mouse or keyboard. 2) Whenever I try to use my bluetooth mouse AND bluetooth keyboard at the same time, I get frequent "disconnects" on the bluetooth keyboard and it becomes unresponsive (meanwhile, my bt mouse still works...
Its a good product but the sim card slot should be considered.
5 August 2014
Summary: Th e product is light as expected therefore, easier to carry around. I didn't like the fact that it didn't have a sim card slot, so access to internet is limited if you're in a place with no wi-fi.
Summary: I can only reiterate some of what's already been observed about this computer. When you order it go ahead and order a 32 or 64GB storage card (if you don't have one already) because you're going to need it. Also order a micro USB OTG cable and an 8GB flash drive so that you can immediately use them to create a recovery device and then delete the recovery partition to free up that space.
Summary: Good appearance and solid. Performance is medium but meet all my requirements especially for Flash compatibility. Its backlight is too bright in the minimum level. The volume is not loud enough in the maximum level. The battery life is acceptable. Overall is good.
Summary: After updates it has 5GB of space left. 4 stars if the partition didn't show up as 23GB with 18GB used by the system after updates. Everything else is pretty slick about this tablet, especially for the price. Touch is fluid. Does not feel slow or laggy. Other than the space, the other drawback is the build quality/feel. Obviously it is a slab of glass on the front, and while the miix 2 8 does not feel cheap, I prefer the fit/finish of something like the Nexus 7.
Summary: I won a Miix2 8 at a company event, and bought a second one for myself. Both managed, within a few days of each other, to fall from about 2.5; off of a desk. In both cases, the bezel separated from the back (it was in a protective case, and this still occurred). Now that's bad enough, but to make matters worse the way the power button is situated, separating the bezel from the back causes it to pull out of the hinge, making it impossible to turn on or off if you...
Summary: But after entering my account data it rebooted back to the original date after resetting the correct date (today) It pomptly locked up the UAC security by telling me the trial mcbloatware antivirus program trial expired. Would not let me switch on or use Windows defender.
Summary: I was an early adopter of this, and I've been using it now for 2 months (since mid-Nov 2013). Here are some comments: 1. This is my first use of Win8 (actually, Win8.1) with a touchscreen. I can see the usefulness of using Win8 this way. On a laptop or desktop, I find it much easier to use Win7. 2. I am disappointed so far in Lenovo's support of this tablet.
Already obsolete - await ThinkPad 8 - end of January 2014
22 January 2014
Summary: As with any technology as soon as you receive something it is already obsolete - particularly true in this case as Lenovo is slated to start shipping the ThinkPad 8 with an 8.3 screen, a faster processor, optional keyboard/case and most importantly a micro-HDMI port at the end of January 2014. Attention: GPS on the ThinkPad 8 will only come with the 3g/4g/LTE models due out later.
OK, but for the same price the Venue 8 Pro is better

20 January 2014
Summary: I ordered both this and the Venue 8 Pro at the same time to compare and contrast. While this Lenovo offered a good first impression - it felt a bit lighter, the screen was brighter - digging in further left me with an obvious choice to keep the Dell. The main issues are with the speaker and the screen. The speaker is extremely tinny, quiet, and yet still distorts when turned all the way up.
