Pros: The stylus is great for a lot of things you wouldn't even think of, for example it's thinner and more precise than your finger, so gaming where you're continually tracking your position with your finger (such as Abyss Attack) is easier as it blocks your view less.
It feels more solid than my Nexus 7 (1st generation) .
The MicroSD card slot is a nice thing to have too.
The quality of the stereo speakers is great too.
The magnetic sleep/wake with the case definitely beats having to pres the tiny power buttons on the side of most tablets.
Cons: There doesn't seem to be a lot of different cases if that matters to you.
As with others of the Tegra 4 tablets, there's some thin, visible lines in the screen when it's in bright light. The rest of the time, they're not visible at all.
I'd love it if it had a higher resolution screen, but it's just as good as my previous tablet, which I had no complaints about.
Pros: Big size, good price.
Good return policy? (I hope)
Cons: Sorta recognized by the OS, but I/O error when trying to initialize. Tried multiple SATA ports on both controllers on my Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H motherboard, plus my external USB-to-SATA adapter. No luck with any of them
Other Thoughts: From other reviews, it seems like these are either dead almost instantly or work fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The case fits securely, kickstand is good for when you have a flat surface. The magnets that hold the keyboard in place work perfectly. It's easy to get to the S-Pen and MicroSD ports. Closing the case sleeps the tablet and opening wakes it exactly as it should.
Cons: Big one - Samsung doesn't like the keyboard. It drops its connection after about 5 seconds of not typing. The keyboard works flawlessly with my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
The kickstand is worthless on a lap.
Other Thoughts: The keyboard is still useful as a counterweight when draping it over knees when you sit with your legs at an angle when in bed or on a couch, but until Samsung fixes their bluetooth stack, this doesn't live up to the potential. Until that happens, I'd suggest buying a keyboard-less version.READ FULL REVIEW
