Pros: See previous review. I love this device and use it daily in my business. It is an important tool for me.
Cons: Dead! About 1 month and a week I get blackscreen. No soft reset or hard reset can work because I get no screen at all.
Other Thoughts: Getting the royal run around on getting it repaired. If death occurs over 30 days New Egg doesn't consider it their problem even with a 90 day warranty. That falls under MFG warranty. OK. New Egg CS transferred me to Samsung who told me they don't handle refurbished returns.
There is a number on the device 1.877.787.6856 that you should call. That was news to New Egg. It is also on the label on the back of the unit.
Calling that number however yields busy signals and recordings.
Call back to New Egg gets my ticket "escalated" and was told to sit back and wait. In 1 to 2 business days they *may* get back to me.
I asked about upgrading or getting a deal on a new one and was told we have to go through protocal first.
I have the extended 1 yr warranty as well. Should be covered from here to there. But now I have done 13 phone calls, with over 5 hours of my time invested trying to get this fixed over 3 days with not one shred of info to help me get it fixed.
Meanwhile my business suffers. I may have to buy another tablet (Won't be from New Egg) so I have something that works in the meantime.
Sadly this tablet replaced my old Samsung Galaxy tablet 10.1 that never failed. I gave it to my daughter when I got my new one. Didn't expect to need a replacement in 30 days.
So as you can expect I am not too happy. If some miracle occurs and this gets fixed pronto I will update this review.
The real problem here appears to be the TIME at which it died. Less than 30 days and New Egg takes it back. More than 90 days and the extended warranty kicks in. But if it dies between 30 days and 90 days (Best of luck to you), it falls into the void where some 3rd party does repair for Samsung that apparently does not staff human beings. Just recordings where you can leave a number for them to call you back. That doesn't happen.
Best of luck to you on YOUR purchase. Mine may still turn out "OK" although SLOW!
This review is from: SanDisk Ultra UHS-I 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model SDSDQUI-032G-A11
Pros: The system told me this would take something awful like 10 days to get my product because it was shipped from overseas. Instead it was the first thing of 3 items I ordered at the same time and arrived in 2 days. WOW!
These are SanDisk product and are famous for speed and quality. I have specified SanDisk products when designing consumer electronics in the past. Reliability was never a problem and I don't expect it to be this time either.
These uSDHC are fast enough to use in a video camera. I probably didn't need these fast ones to use in my tablet, but not being a fan of "waiting" I got them anyway. The price penalty was not that bad.
Cons: uSD cards are tiny. It takes some getting used to. Not the most "human friendly" thing with big hands and no fingernails. Get used to it. We all want more memory in smaller locations. OK designers, just keep putting more memory in this card... I don't think I want it smaller. Hehe...
Other Thoughts: These worked great out of the box. I just wish I had about 20 more of them.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive and seems fairly high quality. It seems to do what it was designed to do. It is thin, light and pretty much does what you would expect....almost.
Cons: When the case is opened up and "laying flat" (with the case folded UNDERNEATH the tablet) it doesn't actually lay flat. The area that folds is thicker due to the stiffness. So the net result is that the tablet ends up leaning away from you by (pick a number) 10-15 degrees. Not a huge problem but a tiny bit annoying.
This case is a press fit around the tablet. It is probably supposed to be a "snap fit" but I found it to be more of a PRESS fit. I had to play with the corners to get the tablet to feel like it is securely held. It DID however, seem to work.
The case is thin because there is no material on the front side of the tablet. This leads to a couple of small problems. One is that the top is now all glass as original which makes it a little slick for one handed carrying. One of the main reasons I get a case is to make it less likely to drop. They are slick little buggers.
The second problem that this causes is that the case is held closed by a piece of elastic about 1/2 " wide. That *does* work...kinda well but is a pain in the rear if you open and close the case about 900 times a day like I do. Shortly this turns into the elastic latch not being used. I feel certain it will die in time anyway. Like a "living hinge" this is born to die.
I also find the method of dropping the tablet into slots in the bottom of the case to prop it open at different angles only works well in the landscape mode. In the portrait mode the slot that would have the unit standing the most upright is NON-useable because the tablet is off balance and falls over. Still... it works in the other positions and is useful.
Other Thoughts: Overall I still "like" the case, I just don't love it. It is hard to complain about it because the case was so inexpensive. The quality is not an issue. It is more the design. Even then I am satisfied enough that I am in no hurry to replace it. It works with a few qualifiers that I can live with. YMMV.READ FULL REVIEW
