Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Lightweight, incredibly portable
Cons: small hard drive need a 256
We have 5 of these at work. After purchasing the first one, I couldnt help but add more to our fleet. Currently we have 3 on Win8 and wow does that breathe new life into an already great device. This machine is the perfect blend of workstation and portability. Please note that the best way to install win8 or even fresh install 7 is through optical media. In place upgrades will work also. My only wish would be the docking station that fits with the newer slate. It would be nice to have my keyboard attach to my device when Im working on the couch or not at a desk.
Overall, Samsung is a cant lose brand and made a great step in the touch pc world. This is the one to get!

# of SAMSUNG products I own:3-5
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight, windows os
PROS:
As an architect, the need for a larger screen to review drawings is essential. Also, the ability to use actual software instead of "apps". This is what brought the Samsung Series 7 Slate to the forefront of the competition for me. Tablet-type interface & portability with FULL Windows functionality, sketching tactility, with optional Bluetooth keyboard makes it a Notebook, with the power of a Desktop. Seriously. The agility of use & quickness of startup are first-in-class in my personal comparison tests, beats the competition every time.
CONS:
The screen adapting to rotating the Slate sometimes doesn’t take, thus needing an ‘etch-a-sketch’ shake. The on-screen keyboard is shifty at times, awkwardly seems to land right over where you’re typing, or changes interface from one type keyboard to the other randomly. The volume & rotation lock controls are placed such that when holding in tabloid/portrait position one can easily accidentally adjust volume (left. side) or lock/unlock rotation (right side). The adaptive display brightness is touchy, I've turned that off & adjust manually.

The screen is a bit too small to read full page PDF file in vertical position, but it works. I search for a good PDF Viewer which can show me only text, not the white margins. If someone have an idea !!

I work in IT and one of my roles is to evaluate and manage mobile devices for our 25k employees. I've seen and played with many, many tablets. This is the ONLY Windows based one that I would use. In fact, I would chose this over any iOS or Android tablet in many cases.(with Windows 8 installed) The screen is very nice, far better than average. Battery life isn't as good as the iOS and Android devices, but it can do so much more. This thing is screaming fast at anything I throw at it and it even has a TPM chip to keep IT happy.
This device appears to be very well build and high quality. Even the dock and keyboard are very nice.(purchased separately) The packaging is high quality, similar to how iPad's are packaged, a nice little touch. My main complaint would be weight, but this has a laptop crammed into the form factor of a tablet.
This runs Win7 far better than any tablet/slate device I've used. It was acually usable, though still not ideal. Sumsung recently posted details on how to install Windows 8 and the drivers needed. With Windows 8 this device really shines. It is very fast and enjoyable to use. I would even consider using this device as a desktop/laptop replacement when combined with the dock and keyboard.
The price is on the steep side, well above even the mighty iPads. But again, this is a laptop crammed into a tablet/slate and you are paying for it. The flexibility of the device combined with the design and build quality make it worth considering at this price point.

Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight, conntectvity to networks
Cons: battery life about 5 hours
This tablet not only has all of the best features of a Windows 7 laptop but it adds the functionality of a tablet (Although with very limited apps) The battery life is a little dissapointing but overall this is the product that, had it been introduced first, would have eliminated the market for the average 10" tablet

# of SAMSUNG products I own:3-5
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, built in battery, no indicator of full charge when computer is off., full charge battery does not last long enough, too expensive, no way to strap computer to you hand while carring, there is no holder for the digitizer pen
I chose this product because I thought it was a business class product and I need its advertised features for my Property Inspection business. Unfortunately, I am very unsatisfied with several of the features that are necessary for my work, and therefore, I feel that I wasted the price I paid for this Tablet PC. The 128 GB SSHD and the OS Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit and the 4 Gigabyte of RAM are perfect. However, the built in battery is not a good feature. It runs the computer for about 6 hours. In my line of work, the majority of the time, it is necessary to run the computer on battery power for 8 to 12 hours. If the battery were an external removable battery, when it would run down to empty, I would be able to replace it with a second battery. Also, when it is necessary to shut the computer down and recharge the battery, there is no external indicator that the battery is charging, or one that indicates that the battery is fully charged, or one that indicates that the AC adaptor is connected to the computer. In addition, there is no strap to attach the computer to your hand so it can be safely carried in one hand while freeing up the other hand for other purposes, and there is no provision to attach the Digitizer Pen to the computer. Unfortunately, I am sad to say that this product did not meet the expectations I was lead to believe from my extensive research and the advertising of the product.
