Great before the software update

Summary: When I began to use to product I loved it. It was easy to use, but once I performed the software update it started to freeze. After the update the simple screen shot button was removed. Now when you want to screenshot you have to use both hands which is kind of difficult on a tablet. It systems is really slow and it freezes a lot.
Summary: I was mislead by the Samsung representative in store. I told him what I wanted to use this tablet for and he said I would be able to. I should have done my own research to find that the android system does not allow to load adobe flash player. So the tablet is pretty much useless to me. I do like the small size and light weight compared to a laptop but I will never buy another tablet again.
Summary: Just as the title above speaks, when I opened the box I find I have the student edition. In the Amazon description of products it did not mention that it was a student edition. That was shabby and misleading, unlike Amazon.
Summary: It looked like it had been opened, the reaction time on the screen was slow, the USB port required a special adapter that I could only find by ordering it through Walmart. I don't know why they didn't put it on the docking station? I sent it back, spent the $200 more and got the IPAD 4 with retina display, light years better!
Galaxy Tab 2 10.2" (P5100) - International not compatible w/ TV Adapter
24 July 2013
Summary: This "international" version (P5100)of the Galaxy Tab 2 disables the HDMI output. Hence, this model will NOT have the ability to output to video. Don't bother getting the Samsung TV Adapter with this configuration it will not work. (I tried w/ 3 TV adapters with the same results). When I tried it w/ the US version (GT-P5113TSYXAR) from Costco worked. However, the USA version doesn't have phone capability (no SIM slot).
Summary: My wife brought me this Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 for my birthday, I was excited to get. No more that two week of use, I was at a wedding, using the camera app; Here I was setting and the Tab (in the Case) slip and fell not more 40 cm from the ground since I was sitting on a low chair, and that was it...Tablet gone bad...Nothing on the screen up to this day. What kind of product is this, that can't take small fall...I believe a Tablet should be more durable.
Summary: This tablet is grate for its price. The only promblem was when I resived it, it did not have a charger with it. I ask for a charger from the destipter. They sent me an after market charger, that has made my tablet gletch out on me at random times. I ask for a new one to replace the problem that was made by the after market charger. When ask the distipter they would not do it.
