It's not worth the money

roiseterry, CNET
25 December 2015
  • Summary: It often freezes and does not respond to tapping. I cannot disable the automatic updates and on 9 Dec 2015 it downloaded a heap of Office updates and now I'm critically low on memory. Avoid, avoid. Everything else on the market must be better than this.
  • Pros: It has MS Office in it
  • Cons: It doesn't always respond to tapping. It has run out of memory and I have not downloaded any apps or stored photos, videos.

Product was delivered well packaged and in perfect working order

Ronnie, Amazon

  • Summary: Product was delivered well packaged and in perfect working order. It just turns out that I did not like the way the RT functioned. Processor was too slow for my purposes, and I ended up selling it back to an online used electronics outlet.

Every app I find that seems educational for my daughter and have high reviews can't be added to this surface since all the good

Gretchen Folczyk, Amazon

  • Summary: Wish I would have purchased an iPad instead. Every app I find that seems educational for my daughter and have high reviews can't be added to this surface since all the good apps are from Apple. Can't add iTunes to the surface either.

Expensive Book reader at this point - thumbs wavering towards down

Peggy Harper, Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: So far - I am underwhelmed. It keeps telling me that I can upgrade my Microsoft to 8 from the loaded RT program but it won't do it. I'll keep working on it but as it is at the moment; it is a glorified book reader. So far the app store doesn't carry my bank; won't let me into Amazon.com.

what you see is what you get ... not

S. Murray, Amazon
12 July 2014
  • Summary: I realize the written description says "Surface RT", but the pictures given showed a box with "Surface 2" written on it and that is what I expected. Another showed a keyboard (in fact, the one posted next to the box I am typing this in shows a keyboard) and there was/is no keyboard.

From 5 stars to 2...

Dana D, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: I rarely use my laptop anymore. I bought this on release day at the Denver MS store. I researched it out for a couple weeks prior and have not been disappointed at all. Battery last all day with nearly constant use. Screen is great to watch movies on. Responsive touchscreen.

RT Operating System means no compatible apps, no modern browser, stuck using IE

briegrilledcheese, Amazon

  • Summary: Would strongly NOT recommend buying this tablet today. I bought this on my own dime for work so that I could test ads on a verified Windows tablet, and then figured I could use it for leisure afterward.

SLOW..........SLow............slow..........

Robin in Alaska, Amazon
25 September 2012
  • Summary: This MS Surface is slow, slow, slow!! The charging cable attachment point is magnetic which seems like a good idea, however it is such a hassle to get it lined up perfectly that the whole magnet idea becomes unnoticed due to your constant frustration at getting it lined up "just perfectly" before it...
