  • Summary: I got this tablet for my 16th birthday because my laptop wasn't working good. I was so excited to get this tablet because i thought i could write out notes for school on it but i was wrong. When i unboxed it i had to update it to Microsoft 8.1 RT or i couldn't use it. Once i got this tablet running i tried two write out my notes with it and it was the biggest fail ever. I kept cutting up my notes so i ended up hand writing everything.
  • Pros: it has Microsoft office
  • Cons: touchscreen and everything

I should have bought a better tablet

BingBing95, CNET

  • Summary: I wish I hadn't of bought this tablet. I got it thinking it would be great for going to college, well I was wrong. It is such a hassle to use sometimes. Especially for how high priced it is. It wasn't worth it when I could have just gotten a laptop. It is marketed as a tablet, when it is better to just use it as a laptop because it isn't comfortable holding it any other way. Its too big.
  • Pros: It has the basic Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint. Etc.
  • Cons: Everything else.

  • Summary: Love my Surface RT bought one when they first came out and use it to surface the web, listen to music, reading email.... it is great. The reason I purchased this one was to replace my dead surface. The battery finally gave out however I ordered a replacement battery and was able to save my other Surface. My only complaint is that getting the battery out and replaced could be made a lot easier.

  • Summary: The refurbished item appeared to be in great shape physically; however, we had to return it because it appeard the previous PASSWORD had not been removed. We could not even get it to "open" even after following all instructions from the manual online AND all You-Tube videos we could find on operating the Microsoft Surface RT. Can't really say "hate" the product - could never operate it to make that judgement.

Super slow and boggy

  • Summary: Super slow and boggy. My Kindle Fire runs faster than this. Too bad, as I was super excited to use it. I do like the bigger screen for a tablet and the sound isn't to bad.

  • Summary: This has been my first tablet type device, so I don't have anything to compare it to. I do like that tiles and touch screen capability that meshes very well with the onscreen keyboard or the separate cover/keyboard that I purchased separately. Make no mistake, it is a computer that has tablet capabilities. I'll use on bicycle tours for communication, blogging, and locating routes and businesses.

Sharon McDougal-Jensen, Amazon

  • Summary: As far as I can tell, the unit works fine. Guess I just haven't figured out how to efficiently use it as I don't seem to have the same success with it as I have with my other computers, Ipads, tablets, and phones. It arrived timely and in excellent packing protection. I'll probably get the hang of it. I would order again with confidence from this seller.
