Pros: Fast unit with great picture and sound for tablet. Great for reading magazines with even small font.
Cons: Apps installation and compatibility problems. First problem I discovered when attempted to install Mozilla Firefox but got package invalid error. Than I attempted to install Adobe AIR (not Flash) but got got unknown installation error code (-24). Spend over an hour with Google support since both apps were downloaded from Play store but the steps I was told to perform didn't solve the problem but made Play store unusable cause it would force close as soon as you start it so I had no choice but perform factory reset which fixed the Play store but not the original problems. After that I was told to wait for reply from second level support. Couple of days later I was asked to send bug report following provided instruction but report was never created so there was nothing for me to attach. I attempted to generate the report by tapping appropriate option in developers settings but never got expected notification bug report captured. By that time an update to Mozilla Firefox became available so I attempted to download it but result was the same. Search online showed that package invalid used to be well known problem which was fixed with Play store update but not for me. I also found online that another user got the same problem while downloading Firefox. My examination of system requirement for both apps shows that Intel Atom processor this unit has isn't listed so I assume that's where the problem is so I decide to return the unit and get something else instead
Other Thoughts: After some much waste of time I started to look for replacement, First I thought to get Galaxy Tab 3 even while it has lover resolution screen but unfortunately it also uses Intel Atom processor so I decided not to take another chance and got second generation Nexus 7 which works fine for me so far plus pleant of return timeREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Way faster than HDD. Worth to buy if you planning to move it from existing several years old system to new with native SATA3 support or need more SSD space right now
Cons: Only as fast as my couple of years old OCZ Vertex2 100GB SSD while connected to Marvell 9230 based bootable PCI-E SATA3 controller. You have to download useless Norton Ghost for cloning but it doesn't work so I ended up using third party software to do the job
Other Thoughts: If you are moving from HDD to SSD it's really great buy. But if you expect to get performance you read about in reviews on existing several years old systems by connecting this SSD to PCI-E SATA3 bootable controller ( I use SYBA's Marvell 9230 based I got here from NEWEGG), since old motherboards are only SATA2 ( I have ASUS P6T Deluxe version 2), to save money on new parts and time to built new system and reinstall Windows and applications plus avoid Windows activation hustle (it's not necessary cause only hard drive is changed) than it's not gonna happen cause according to benchmarks (both Magician's and Crystal Disk Mark) I have same performance I had with OCZ Vertex2 100GB connected to SATA on my motherboardREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great picture using VGA cable
Cons: Unable to get picture using provided dvi-d cable with my radeon x850xt card with dvi-i interface (sumsung's support rep said it should be compatible) got two tiny lines of stuck pixels
Other Thoughts: Now stuck waiting for couple of weeks to get a replacement since newegg should receive defective first (will probably take a week) and than another week for a new one if it will be shipped from CA instead of NJ using UPS GroundREAD FULL REVIEW
