Going down hill
8 September 2014
Summary: Still runs nice and fast. Works smooth and glitch free with the exception of the above stuff that just don't function. Seems to have trouble getting to stuff stored on the SD card. Not my first tablet and APPs that redirect/link to the SD card don't seem to help.
Pros: It looks nice.
Cons: Everything worked the first day. Then the camera quit. Then it won't play any video with any player APP you can get. Done factory reset a few times. Still can not make the camera work or make it play a video fine. Even with just factory APPS loaded.
Beware: No Warranty or repairs in the US for this International model
1 June 2014
Summary: I bought this Tablet in August 2013 from Amazom [sold by Hassle Free Cell], and within 2-3 months the battery died. Samsung US said that this is an international Tab made in the UK for that region, and I will have to contact UK for support, and repairs.
Summary: It was not clear when ordering this Samsung that the keyboard didn't completely attach to the tablet for multiple uses. I was looking for one that attached and actually closed when not in use. Was able to find one that was more suiting to my needs.
Summary: Came with one sheet instructions that were a translation from Korean into Japanese into English. That is useless. Opening screen came up in Korean (?) and had a devil of a time getting to English. Once in English, operations, although cryptic, were functional.
Summary: Getting the royal run around on getting it repaired. If death occurs over 30 days New Egg doesn't consider it their problem even with a 90 day warranty. That falls under MFG warranty. OK. New Egg CS transferred me to Samsung who told me they don't handle refurbished returns.
Pros: See previous review. I love this device and use it daily in my business. It is an important tool for me.
Cons: Dead! About 1 month and a week I get blackscreen. No soft reset or hard reset can work because I get no screen at all.
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).
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...
