SAMSUNG Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet PC - Samsung Exynos 1.40GHz - 2GB RAM - 16GB on-board Memory - Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) - Deep Gray
  • Samsung Exynos Quad Core 1.40GHz
  • 10.1" 1280 x 800 TFT Touchscreen
  • 16GB of storage, 2GB Memory
  • Micro SD card up to 32GB
  • 5MP Rear Camera, 1.9MP Front Camera
  • Build-in S Pen
  • 7.1"x10.3"x0.3" 1.31 lbs

Pros:

Nice looking and sturdy (I actually went with this one over the newer version because of other reviews that said this one felt better, sturdier, and had better button placement)

Pen stylus and hand-writing recognition

Sharp, clear screen

Powerful and responsive, runs any app that I throw at it.

Cons:

No HDMI output - My 2-year-old Acer Iconia has a mini-HDMI output; this one does not. Not a huge deal, but somewhat missed.

No USB input - In addition to a micro-USB port, My old Acer Iconia also has a full-size USB port for thumb drives or USB devices which was particularly handy; disappointing this one doesn't have it. Definitely miss having this.

Proprietary USB/power adapter - I can't just plug in a micro USB cable to transfer files like I can with any other android device; it requires a proprietary cable for both power and USB connectivity. This is almost a deal-breaker.

Notifications on lock screen - This one is a deal-breaker. I have a PIN to unlock my tablet, indicating a desire for some level of privacy, yet the tablet still displays my latest reminders on the lock screen. I see no way to disable this without having to resort to disabling apps, and Google thus far has not provided any assistance. This is a "feature" limited to Samsung devices as I have never seen this on another Android device, despite having owned quite a few (none Samsung). Frankly, were it not for that, I would have rated this 4 stars (minus one for the proprietary USB adapter), but this is particularly egregious to me. I do work on my tablet and usually have my work account synced but I do not feel comfortable doing that because of this.

Other Thoughts:

Right now waiting on a response from Samsung support to determine if there is a reasonable way to disable this and if so I will revise my review, otherwise I'm afraid this will be going back and the review will stand.
