    Ability to hook up common usb peripherals and use them? Check - external DVD, USB stick were a breeze to use and install programs (.iso of software CD's, etc). Flawless, and convenient. Ability to use the programs I have already purchased for my home machine? Check - Office 2010, adobe photoshop, etc - they all worked without issue. I just can't emphasize how nice this is to finally have in a tablet. I even put world of warcraft on for the heck of it - just because I could. Ability to expand through a Micro SD card? Check - bought a 64GB class 10 card and have Apps installed on it (yes, you can install apps to the microSD card) as well as videos, games, MP3's and pictures. Very handy, doesn't fill the O/S drive with unnecessary items. Great Screen? Check - even coming from a retina ipad user. Bright, vivid display with good sharp resolution. The auto brightness is a tad harsh at times, but that can be adjusted in the power settings. Great battery? Check - hours and hours of play each day for the last two days, and the remaining battery life frankly blew me away each night (60%+ available). This is through installing programs, playing games, watching videos, surfing the web (can't count the number of times my son looped that gangum style song on you tube!?!). Very impressed with battery life for a full featured machine. Windows 8? Not as bad as I thought. I was anticipating a train wreck that would take me a long time to get used to. It is well done and feels good on the tablet. Not sure I am up for putting it on my home machine yet, but on the tablet, it really goes a long ways to make it the experience it is. Also, Samsung includes a program if you use the "SW Updater" that puts the start button functionality basically back on your desktop. Samsung did a nice job with the pen that you get with the tablet as well - that thing is handy in OneNote, it can even read my terrible handwriting. When you have to bounce to the desktop, it is also a nice feature to be able to use the pen and click, drag, right-click. Not necessary, but nice none the less. Processor Speed? Again, not as bad as I thought. I almost didn't buy it when I saw "atom". Perhaps intel should change the name, because this processor actually performs well. It seemed sluggish for the first few hours, but after that it has really been peppy. Perhaps there were some things installing in the background, or maybe uninstalling Norton bloatware did it, but the performance of the Atom processor has exceeded my expectations. I think the build quality of the tablet is very nice - good clean edges, great sounding speakers that point toward you, well placed inputs on the edges. As far as "feel" of the materials, I find it very similar to my wife's Galaxy S3. It is lighter than I expected for the size, but the size poses issues I mention below (non-standard - nothing fits it). Negatives? No docking station in stock anywhere - I mean I have tried all over. No Cases and covers. The charger for it is like a laptop charger that plugs into the wall (has a mini brick). I don't see any Car adapters for it available, and would guess it will be expensive as you can't seem to use a common USB type charger for it. Overall, those few negatives aside which time may fix, I love this thing. More than I expected. Thanks Samsung and Microsoft for finally making the tablet a common piece of technology.

    I have been looking forward to making this my go-to device for around the house, at the pool, and travel. Although I really want to whole heartedly love this device, after four days of use, several issues make it unusable. The tablet has required a reboot many, many, many times (more than 20 in four days). I have installed all of the windows updates and all of the Samsung specific updates through the included Samsung SW Update software. The problems listed below puzzle me. It is impossible to determine if I am experiencing hardware failures or device driver inadequacies. I am returning the unit as defective and reordering another unit. I am very impressed with the build, size, and design. Hopefully I received a defective dock/tablet and the replacement will work without issue. I really want to keep this machine. I will update my review after using the replacement unit. Here is to hoping for a flawless experience the next go-round. PROS Awesome packaging Great speakers for a tablet Never warm/hot 8-10 hour battery life (my experience Keyboard/trackpad dock pros -excellent tactile keyboard = fast typing with few mistakes -trackpad is responsive, but clicking the corners for left/right clicks takes some getting used to CONS Keyboard/trackpad dock loses connection very often -you will hear three disconnect chimes when it loses connection -sometimes the dock reconnects with three more connect chimes -sometimes it brings up a "USB device not recognized" error in the system tray -this makes the trackpad no longer responsive -sometimes this happens when the device is on a solid table without anyone touching it or the table -all of these issues can cause the tablet to become unresponsive -because this happens when the machine is not even being touched, I have to think it is a combination of the dock connection and/or bad device drivers =requires reboot Buggy drivers leave the sound choppy and very low bitrate sounding after an apparent glitch = requires reboot Graphics drivers buggy, making the auto rotate function glitch and the display unresponsive = requires reboot Downloading large updates or syncing large files causes the tablet to become very slow, but still responsive Keyboard/trackpad dock inadequacies -no 2nd battery in -no 2nd SD card slot -trackpad does not have options in driver in system tray -no edge motion - when you reach the edge, the cursor stops moving -no gesture personalization

          I love this tablet! It does everything I need it too. I take online classes and needed a tablet that supported Microsoft Word and this tablet fit the bill. I love that it has a keyboard. The app market needs some help (a search bar would be great), but other than that it's awesome.

                The best of two worlds. A tablet with excellent performance, lightweight, bright display, storage and even USB ports. Connect to the small dock and added keyboard, more ports and still light. Had a problem doing a BIOS upgrade the first time, but Samsung took care of it.

                    Comments about Samsung XE500T1C-A01US:

                    The ATIV Smart PC 500T is a good tablet with excellent battery life. Unlike iOS and Android tablets, it gives you Windows 8 (free update to Windows 8.1 via Windows Update) and excellent expandability, including a USB 2.0 port and a micro-SD card slot. Add the optional keyboard for more USB 2.0 ports and a touchpad. When running Windows 8, the keyboard didn't always stay connected via Plug and Play, and it was necessary to remove and reconnect it. If you shoot large RAW files with a digital SLR or compact system camera, you will want to get a third-party RAW image viewer as the on-board ATOM processor renders RAW images very slowly when used with the standard Microsoft Digital Camera Codec pack. The front and rear-facing cameras work very well with Windows 8.1's new Camera app.

                        I tried the ipad twice & hated it, I have always been a pc user and laptops especially since I work on the road constantly and I find the virtual keyboard to be too slow. So I came across this unit with high hopes thinking great its the best of both worlds. Little did I know I would go through three keypads since the connection ports are cheaply made and don't transport well and you are limited with the tilt. Otherwise you breach the connection, huge design flaw, try making this a little more secure, for the price I paid I expected much better. Do yourself a favor and find another hybrid.

                          I bought several of these for supers in the field. Theses little things are great and sturdy. Out of the six or so I've bought I only had two issues. One time i got a keyboard where the connectors were warped and wouldn't attach. But these things happen from time to time Exchanged it no problem. The other issue was with windows, it began to bug out than just broke. The only other thing I don't like is that there is no disc for windows. If windows is broken and doesn't boot up than you can't get to the recovery part and you have to send it in. Other wise this is a decent sturdy little tablet.
