Samsung ATIV Smart PC XE500T1C-A04US 11.6-inch Windows 8 Tablet – 64GB
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs good but not great 05/05/2013

This review is from: Samsung ATIV Smart PC XE500T1C-A04US 11.6-inch Windows 8 Tablet – 64GB

Pros: Very useful tablet for win 8. The atom processor responses surprising well compared to my earlier net book experiences. This device has replaced my iPad for several reasons:
1. Print from device through USB, not every printer is networked.
2. Drop into windows environment without hassle.
3. Runs windows programs well
4. Office 2013
5. Plays any type of media
6. Bit locker encryption (must upgrade to win 8 pro)
7. Windows media center
8. Samsung start up manager. Keeps the new junk out.
9. Good battery life over 6 hrs for me.

Cons: Overpriced
Cheap build quality feeling
Too big, needs 2" cut in length
Too much junk ware and inability to remove from update program
Keyboard dock sucks

Other Thoughts: The platform for this atom processor z2760 is pretty good. I suspect that there is minimal difference between different tablets based on the atom platform for windows 8
Much more useful than win rt (this is an rt killer).
If a tablet of comparable surface tablet quality existed that was based on the atom z2760, RT would be doomed.

Linksys AE1000-RM Wireless-N Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 2.0

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Decent performance. I stream a homerun HD TV signal to my Win 7 DVR without trouble on the 5ghz freq. recording two streams at one time on a regular basis. No complaints

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Avoid use with Linksys (Cisco) cloud connect junk, I have this adaptor attached to a cisco router ea-4500. Ever since the cloud connect update it has not worked as well

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to work with and I had the case in use fairly quickly. It has been pretty reliable so far being used as a win7 dvr with media center. Power supply works fine and fairly quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Core 2 duo chip
4 gb
win 7 home prem
2 tb hard drive
DVD drive
