4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to the "Top critical review"

Pros: The Bluetooth is no longer giving me issues!!

They finally released a good driver update, one year later. I installed that and Windows 8.1 and now the Bluetooth is fixed.

The tablet is finally what I wanted it to be. I now use it with a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard, Microsoft Bluetooth mouse, and Samsung tablet bookcover. It all works like a dream.

Cons: Just avoid the keyboard dock.

Other Thoughts: Get the Samsung bookcover. It is really high quality and adds a much needed ability to stand the tablet up. The flap is held in place with magnets! They are only 20 dollars at the Operating System company store website. Unfortunately, Newegg didn't carry them when I looked.

2 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware!!

Pros: -The tablet has a very long battery life. It seems like it really gets the 8 hours.

-The touch screen and digitized pen are great to use. I really enjoy writing notes in class.

Cons: -The keyboard dock is the worst hardware failure ever. If you look around on the web you will find allot of complaints of constant disconnects. The keyboard will even randomly disconnect and reconnect while sitting on a table with no motion! The problem lies with the contact pins on the keyboard dock. I was able to fix mine by carefully adding a tiny amount of solder to each pin tip. If you add to much solder you will ruin the pins spring feature, causing more problems This modification should not be necessary!! It makes me sad to see what other people get when they buy a Surface. Do not buy this tablet with the keyboard dock!

-Bluetooth was my first solution to the keyboard problem. Even after doing all the updates possible I still have trouble with this. When I attach a Logitech keyboard and a Microsoft mouse I randomly get driver failures from the Bluetooth stack. They both begin to cut in and out. This requires that I delete the devices and re-install them, which reactivates the mouse and keyboard but causes the wireless to fail completely. I have to restart the computer to regain that. I gave up on Bluetooth and resorted to fixing my keyboard.

-It cannot play anything even slightly graphical. Not even “Minecraft-Pc edition”. Games like “Plants vs Zombies” are great but don't expect to play anything 3D.

-The included half pen is not comfortable. I had to buy a full size pen for $40.

Other Thoughts: After modifying my keyboard to stop the disconnects I am OK with my tablet, but I look back at everything I dealt with bitterly. The small amount of pros from this device are available in more polished packages from other manufacturer (Microsoft). I cannot recommend this device to anyone.

Manufacturer Response:


Thank you for purchasing the Samsung ATIV Smart PC XE500T1C-A01US.

I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with the keyboard dock.

Please initiate an SW update (software update) from Win 8 apps or UI, which will pull the latest BIOS and Drivers for all the I/O ports. The latest firmware and drivers are designed to mediate the effect of disconnection and reconnection.

Please contact Samsung Customer Support at 1-800-SAMSUNG for further assistance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Overall Win 8 Tablet PC

Pros: I have had NONE of the problems of the other reviewers. Bought TWO of these (at different times) while on sale, and both have worked perfectly. NO keyboard problems of any type. Battery life is excellent at 10+ hours. Cold boot for windows 8 32 bit is about 7 seconds. (Why would anyone care about "hibernate"??) The keyboard attaches and works perfectly and has two additional USB 2.0 ports. Available: stand dock AA-RD7NSDO has a street price of $60 and connects all cords to the dock base unit. Thus, with the press of a button on the dock, the unit can be instantly removable for portable use. Performance of Windows 8 32-bit is very fast, and, in many instances, is more compatible with 16-bit XP software than win 7. When unit is "off", there is NO loss of battery power. When "on" button is pressed, the unit boots in about 7 seconds. (I timed it!). The Wacom s-pen works perfectly, and hand-writing note taking is flawless. Finger touch also works great! I found the 64 GB SSD drive to be perfectly adequate. About 40 GB is available for programs. I added a 32 GB micro flash card for storage of PDF's, and data files. Formatted it NTFS, and the typical access time is virtually instant to the files on the micro card. MPG2 movie video files play perfectly. The 11.6" screen is large enough to be my desk top replacement, and small enough for great portability. The 11.6" screen is under 1.5 lbs, and the battery life is outstanding, with over 10+ hours at high performance. With daily 4-8 hour usage, both units have performed perfectly after 2-3 months. I added "startisback" and the start tab is virtually the same as win 7. (Cost = two bucks per computer.) In conclusion, I LOVE THIS COMPUTER. Combined with the sale price, the fully functional included keyboard, the Wacom s-pen write capability (plus finger touch), and the available $60 docking station, this unit has performed perfectly as my desktop replacement, at a steal of a price!

Cons: After three months of daily usage, I haven't found any cons!

Other Thoughts: As mentioned, I have purchased two of these units and both have performed perfectly for the past 3 months with daily 4-8 hour usage. I would not hesitate to purchase again, and have recommended these units to others!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat device with one huge flaw

Pros: Not buggy, doesn't disconnect from dock, doesn't lock up. It has been exceptionally stable. The battery life (while in use) is phenomenal, and I like the S-Pen functionality. It's heavier than an iPad but I came from a Dell Inspiron so it feels pretty dang light compared to that.

Cons: Ok, I'm only going to mention one con - But I'm about to sell this thing to some unsuspecting victim because of it. It looses about 3-5% per hour in connected standby. If I leave it for a day it's nearly dead next time I use it. I reboot my Dell Inspiron one a month on patch Tuesday. I shut the lid and it hibernates. I open it and 8 seconds later it's ready to go. This 500t doesn't have the option for hibernate, and I'm not going to power it down every time I put it away. So basically I have to leave it plugged in when I'm no using it. Maybe I'm overwrought, but this is driving me nuts.

Other Thoughts: Contacted Samsung support, they told me hibernate was not an option. Basically, keep it plugged in or shut it off.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a fan

Pros: It comes with a detachable keyboard. Has a descent camera, is pretty sturdy and has a great digital pen.

Cons: It freezes up a lot making it so that you have to reboot it often. It is pretty heavy even without the keyboard. There is nothing that would make me choose this perticular one over another brand.

4 out of 5 eggsQuirky, but Amazing (Keyboard Solution in "Other Thoughts")

Pros: -S-Pen gives outstanding note-taking utility, and tucks away inside the screen
-Price (I got it at an outstanding price)
-Full Windows 8 allows use of all your favorite programs (see other thoughts about my take on Win8)
-New Atom processor really delivers
-Nice screen
-Nice features
-Long battery life, I'd say about 8-9 hours on. (Read other thoughts)
-Samsung's S-Note app is outstanding
-Keyboard dock has very responsive keys, and multi-touch mouse-pad with 2 USB ports
-Cameras both work well, recorded sound is acceptable
-Starts up quick
-Responds quickly (once configured, see Cons)
-Sound is very impressive for such a small device
-Screen is true widescreen, and quite large (11.6")
-Surprisingly plays some mid-ranged desktop games
-Works with all hardware I've tried with it, including keyboards, gaming mice, gaming keypads, headsets, flash drives, external hard drives...

Cons: -Dock is horrible... as it comes anyways... I really want Samsung to make this right though
-S-Pen doesn't have an 'eraser' like Surface does
-Very difficult to configure correctly, had to "Reset" the tablet twice to get it right, which is easier with Windows 8 than it used to be with other OS
-Must update drivers for proper functionality, if you don't do it correctly, and immediately, the device will be unusably laggy (particularly trying to write with S-Pen)
-Keyboard dock does not have a battery, nor a full sized SD card slot
-HUGE PROBLEM with keyboard docks connectivity, though there are several simple ways to fix this (see other thoughts)
-Plastic bezel
-Sometimes doesn't come out of standby, requiring a hard reset
-Windows store is a bit flawed, it doesn't like when you queue a large amount of Apps to install or update
-SSD is normal flash memory, so don't expect the speeds you'd get from the memory-module SSDs
-No USB 3.0, but that's to be expected with this type of chipset

Other Thoughts: First and foremost, the dock is a total catastrophe... very disappointed with Samsung on this. It types very well, its mouse is accurate, the ports work... but it does not stay connected AS SHIPPED. You CAN fix this though.

The issue is physical, and there's a number of solutions to fix this, but the easiest way is to adjust the way the tablet rests on the back-rest of the metal joint (on the dock). However you do it, the end result needs to be that the tablet is pushed further forward (towards the user) than it is now. You can put bigger sliding pads on it (the 3 square pads on the metal along the inside), you can put thicker adhesive on the existing pads... you can put something over the existing pads, put something on the tablet where it rests on the metal backing... or you can bend the metal backing itself.

Just to prove it to yourself before you go and do something drastic with it, just rip up some tissue or paper towel, and stuff it behind the tablet when you connect it. It should no longer have it's chronic and completely unacceptable disconnects. For some reason, Samsung designed the dock with too loose of tolerances. When the dock sits down, the clamps on either end are both too close (so that torque on the device has a much higher effect), and don't hold down tight enough. Pair this with the fact that the device leans back a bit, the connection ends up as being unreliable... thus disconnects.

The solution pushes (from the back) the tablet further onto the spring-loaded connector pins, which are surface contacts and not an actual plug (stupid design).


The battery life is great. While I'm disappointed with the fact that the mount (ugh... so bad...) doesn't have a battery, I'm still able to use the device all day without any issues. I'd give a rough guess of 8-9 hours of solid use, BUT I do have to say, the standby isn't all that great. The standby drain on the battery IS noticeable, and somewhat strange.


Windows 8 gets a bad reputation, but it doesn't deserve it. I've owned Windows 8 on my home desktop computer since it came out. It works very well, just as compatible with everything as windows 7 is (in some cases, more compatible, as surprising as that is). The ONLY significant change is that the OS has essentially become Two-Faced.

On one side, you have the Meta's Touch-Friendly interface that works great with tablets. On the other side, you have the same desktop you grew to love with Windows 7 and all of it's predecessors. On my desktop, I hardly ever touch the Meta interface, on the Tablet, I use the Meta interface about 50% of the time.

Windows 8 is great, it's fast, very user friendly. Don't be scared off by it, it's not a Vista or ME... it works great.


Processor is a duel core, hyperthreaded, low power unit built specifically for Windows 8 tablets, and it shows. It performs very well.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but not great!

Pros: Light weight even with keyboard attached. Nice screen and pretty good viewing angles. Works with 64GB SDHC card. Battery life about the same as IPAD 3. No trouble yet with keyboard disconnects. Would have been nice with second battery built in keyboard.

Cons: Plastic case makes it light weight but not easy to hold. Very easy to slip out of hands if not careful. Atom processor just plain sucks! very sluggish and becomes unresponsive just surfing the internet. With no other software installed just stock Windows. Reminds me of those cheap netbooks. WIFI dual band chip is horrible. Both bands great range and are steady but very slow!! Max connection speed is 65MBps where is the N speed? Aren't we in 2013? I have Comcast 105/20 max speed I can get standing next to router is 42/20 on 5GHz and 2.4GHz is half that speed. Its not the tablet because I hooked USB Ethernet up and also a dual band USB WIFI dongle and it will do full speed. Plain and simple cheap and junkie WIFI chip. I have a Samsung galaxy note 10.1 and it gets full speed. Touch pad just acts weird for no reason I guess driver issue? Would not buy again to many issues for price!

2 out of 5 eggsLesson learned

Pros: Works well NOW, docks into the keyboard fine and programs i installed works properly.

Cons: 1st tablet they shipped me didn't have windows properly installed and wouldn't work at all. Had to deal with RMA to get it fixed... when it came back for some reason there's 2 boxes now and they tell me I ordered it twice. I had to get with RMA again to get the 2nd one sent back from my own pocket.

Other Thoughts: This wasn't an isolated incident, getting headaches with shipping with newegg. I'm done with this site till they get their act together, and I'll be sure to spread the word for people to think twice before shopping here.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!!!

Pros: 100 times more functional than IPAD, SDXC not SDHD so have 64gb sd card space. No issues with keyboard dock or wifi disconnect. 4 ipad owner friends are ordering today.

Cons: keyboard battery would be nice but multitouch mouse pad beats out competition.

4 out of 5 eggsAll in one is here

Pros: -Gets the job done for both casual read/watch use and at work for IT project management. Have a huge work issue laptop, though take this with me for meeting notes, travel, etc.
-Battery goes a long way. I set to sleep when power button pushed and have gone for days.
-Solid build. Dropped from five feet and the plastic only got scrapes.. did not break. Has some war wounds now for character.
-Performance. I installed Office 2010 pro and it runs just fine on the Atom processor.
-Built in s-pen. Great how that keeps it handy. Use it all the time on legacy windows programs and with OneNote.
-11.6 display. Great for notes, about the size of a piece of paper and fits in notepad folios.

Cons: -The keyboard touch pad. Have to push too hard to click. Needs additional right and left click buttons or track point. Would like if it extended further.
-Occasionally doesn't wake up from sleep and need to hard reset.
-64 GB isn't much storage space. Find nearly filled with OfficePro. Buy an additional 32GB microSD card or wireless hard drive. Should have wiped upon purchase to get rid of bloat.
-Bluetooth headset drivers not available.
-Occasionally need to disable and re-enable wireless.
-Windows8: Have run into compatibility issues with Cisco IP/Sec VPN Client and a couple other things like Flash websites on metro apps. Not many Windows8 apps even still.
-Power plug: Proprietary is annoying. Would be nice to charge over a wall USB.

Other Thoughts: Windows8 is still rather new so this is a solid offering out of the gate. For $650 now it is a real value for what you get.
