Summary: This is my first, and last Samsung product. My 8.4 Tab is about 1 month old and the micro usb connector is shot. I'm serving over in Afghanistan and really looked forward to using this on this deployment. Nope. Its a big paper weight. Hello iPad here I come.

DON'T BUY EXPENSIVE PLASTIC, this from a TRUE Samsung fan!

Summary: What kind of customer I am: I have over 10 Samsung devices. After a couple weeks the silver trim started to peal off. Every thing else is great!!! Nice feel, awesome display! great response on touch! Very snappy! Battery life not an issue for me like others have complained. But I spent $400 on a tablet with cheap dollar store chrome plastic!
Summary: Great tablet but horrible speakers. As others have said the speakers crackle when the volume is muted and using an app that would normally play audio. It could be as simple as the unlock swipe if it is muted. To check, turn media volume down, open YouTube or something that would play audio like a game, and listen. If you don't hear it you are either lucky or try it in a quiet room, ghold the speakers up to your ears.
Summary: I got the device yesterday it was delayed it supposed to arrive two days But it takes 8 days. It looks like it was an open box it doesnt arrive with a sumsung seal it was tape on both end. and now i cant somehow connect to the internet if i cant fix this ill return it. Its disappointing.
Good chance your unit will be defective (but you won't notice right away)

Summary: Update: I sent my original back, and got another one that does the same thing. I sent my first one back, and got another one that does the same thing. Some might say it's nitpicky, but I pre-ordered it, they delayed the release 10 days, and for a tablet that costs $400 in 2014, it should be Pro. This glitch is amateur. If Samsung could tell me that it's software, and will be fixed in an update coming soon, I'd be fine with that.
Summary: As soon as i switched the tablet on and it started updating itself I could feel the left hand side of the tablet ( when held in portrait) getting extremely hot and uncomfortable to hold. I then read on the web that other users have had the exact same experience. The next thing I noticed was the unexpected lag when moving about from screen to screen or viewing Google earth etc. My older Galaxy Note 8.0 seems to out perform this supposedly higher spec Pro 8.4.
Summary: Extremely poor build quality from Samsung with this. I am returning it straightaway. It makes an annoying creaking sound near the bottom left hand side of the screen...like its going to break or come apart any second. Now let's be sincere the screen is gorgeous, but the overall build quality leaves a lot to be desired. You will certainly be disappointed with this 8.4 phablet after some time. Stay away from it!
