Pros: Brand new tablet. I couldn't believe this was a refurb! Blazing fast, great screen, docking station, etc. Couldn't be happier but...
Cons: Unfortunately the fan in the unit is noisy. It's very audible. It sounds like the fan is dying, the way it winds up and down while working. The blades sound like they're rubbing against something. It's so loud I have to seriously consider sending it back.
Summary: I upgraded this machine to windows 10 within 24 hours of receiving it. The upgrade process was very easy and took less than 2 hours total with no headaches or technical issues. Windows 10 is made for this type of machine. I have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse as well as a digitizer pen.
Pros: Starts fast, runs fast, windows 10 was made for this machine, Amazing amount of computing power in this tablet. Digitizer pen (sold separately) works well, The combined 128 GB SSD Hard drive and 64 GB SD Card provide ample storage space. Power cord is quite long and allows me to leave plugged in ...
Cons: Short battery life (4 to 6 hours depending). I knew this when I purchased and it is not a deal breaker for me. To get this much horsepower and get away from the atom processors requires some juice. Somewhat bigger than the slimmest tablets out there, but again, the horsepower provided more than m...
Summary: My unit arrived with only very minor scratches where the unit contacts the docking stating. Other than that, it's pristine!! I did talk to Newegg before buying and they told me that I could return/exchange it if it was too scratched for my liking. I got lucky, maybe??
Pros: 11" tablet with I5 with snappy performance. Has TPM for extra security (read the manual, download it from Samsung). Overall, very pleased with this purchase.
Cons: AC adapter gets very hot, almost too hot to hold in your hand.
Summary: I like this thing. Very good condition and with a dock. I have windows 7 pro x64. I don't know if I will move to windows 10, but I might play with it at some point if I get bored. I have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, not needed but definitely appreciated.
Pros: This is a massive for a tablet, or my idea of a tablet, but this is a PC tablet and therefore not an app driven device. This is essentially a laptop without the keyboard. I have this thing running all of my desktop software, not something I could do with an app driven tablet such as the iPad. At ...
Cons: A very minor issue since I am a little more than average technically inclined is that the OS was rebooted but no manufacturer software was loaded. This can be significant since the manufacturer software is likely essential to your added enjoyment of this product. I went to the Samsung website and...
NOT what I'd call "refurbished" - scratched & dinged up

Summary: I hope I won't have to go through a big hassle to get Newegg to take this back.
Pros: Looks like the SAMSUNG Series 7 slate might be a nice tablet... IF you happen to get a "good" one. But so far, it looks like the probability of that happening is about 1 out of 3.
Cons: The first review (by SEUNG Y) is about accurate for the one I got as well. The SAMSUNG Series 7 slate I got was has obvious signs of rough handling... it's scratched & dinged up, especially the area where the tablet engages the dock (of course, the dock is scratched up as well). On top of that, t...
Summary: While I appreciate that the reviewer a few days ago was not happy with his purchase, I have had no trouble at all with mine. No obvious scratches or marks, and it comes with a small base/port expander and power supply. So far it's all good for me.
Pros: Large screen, desktop replacement tablet with 4GB RAM, 128 SSD
