"Under-promises & OVER performs=Excellent" - By R Rated (North Georgia)
I'm a long time user and owner of Samsung devices including the original Tab 1 and currently have the Note II smartphone. I lead with that information in order to provide some context in describing the Tab 3 which is simply a wonderful device for the money and for the ease of operation in most anything you'd want a tablet for and to do.
The display is far improved over the earlier tab. It's like going for SD to HD in one fell swoop. The setup and getting it synced with the home network wifi was far easier than I had thought it would be. The same can be said for tying into the Google disciplines. Once I set up my existing Google Gmail transfer, I was able to easily tap into my existing Amazon kindle account and start reading from my personal books ... full review

"Just Like I Said....Here's My Review!!!!" - By Jewelry Queen (Connecticut,USA)
Well it came today...in three days as promised. Came in the mail....but very well packaged and the box was in perfect condition. Once I opened it, everything was sealed and looked new to me. I began to fiddle with it (before completely charging it- whoops) and figured the whole thing out pretty quick and deleted some apps I'd never use. Then I realized it needed to be charged and found after about 45 minutes of me playing with it (and being interrupted by my kids) I still had 74% of battery time left...so I figure one battery charge then should last me close to 4 hours. Not too shabby. The white color looks great (wasn't sure about that) the colors are crisp, the stylus a pleasure, and the only thing I found wasn't behaving was my screensaver...it lost its ability to stick for some reason. Am I upset? ... full review
My primary benefit from this product was to have a light and dependable device to use for my catalogs because I am an independant distributor. This device will store all of your data (buy a micro SD card if necessary) and allow you to view the contents on the fly.
This is an android device,
When first opening the product, the manufacturer cannot be any more clear about allowing the device to charge for about 12 hours before it's first use. There is practically no setup after charging it, turn the device on, then search through the media folder to remove the pictures and videos used to test the device before shipping it to you. Some consumers mistake these contents for recieving an old used product.
Installing Adobe PDF reader allowed me to utilize the device for it's initial purpose. Large pdf files need just a little ... full review
I am big fan of apple products and I needed to buy a computer device for my 80 yr old mom. Ipad was just too expensive for what my mom needs. Came across this one and bought it. I am very impressed after using it for about a week . It is not as seamless as an OSX device but for the money I do not believe it can be beat. I'm seriously thinking about buying one for myself. The screen although not a retina display is really very good. The forward firing speakers are a welcomed feature and it is lighter in weight compared to the iPad, very nice to handle and hold. I have to say I've been reaching for this device over my iPad lately. I really like the stand and keyboard that come with this package. Is ... full review

"First tablet, good choice, but read updates" - By Andrea Polk
It was my birthday and my family asked me what I wanted. I decided a new toy would be nice.
My needs are minimal as I'm at my desktop much of each day, but occasionally like to read from my Kindle, surf for deals on Amazon, watch a Netflix movie, listen to music and email. I have accomplished these things with my Android phone, but slowly using 3G and a 4" screen.
For a tablet I wanted a 7" screen, camera w/ video capabilities, responsive operating system, expansion capabilities with a microSD card, and a built in GPS, not dependent upon wifi or 3G. I found all of that in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. Not the fastest OS (Google Nexus 7 will have the 4.1 Jellybean) or the fastest processor or the very best screen resolution, but 'very good' which translated into a ... full review
"Just not there yet. Maybe one day... EDIT (Huge software improvements!)" - By A. Markus
Part of my job is to evaluate media streaming hardware for an entertainment company. In the last few weeks I've acquired an iPad 2, Kindle Fire and this Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to test and evaluate. I also own the original Droid Incredible, which is where my android experience comes from. These are the devices I'll be comparing this device to.
Let me start off by saying I really wanted to love this thing. I've been an android user for a couple years and thought that it would translate well to the tablet environment. While there are some nice things, it really lacks is most departments. After a week of using the device, this is what I found.
THE GOOD -The device itself looks and feels nice in your hands, even with the plastic back. -Front facing stereo speakers are a nice addition, unlike the other tablets ... full review
"Great for 150, and a few things better than the original Nexus 7" - By GQ (NJ)
I got my MeMo hd 7 pad yesterday and the boxing was similar the original Nexus 7. Once I open it, I noticed it was lighter, but the screen does look smaller due to the larger bezel. But I am sure that the screens are the same size as I measured it to be 7 inches. I also noticed that the glass on the MeMo attracts smugges easily more than the Nexus.
Now on to why its a 5 star rating: -It took about 1 - 2 minutes to set up -It updated to a newer version of andriod immediately -I spent 5 hours installing games and apps from google play store and amazon app store and the battery life was still at 57% -It is light, so very easy to hold on your hands for long durations -Gaming like captain America and Iron man was great, no hick ... full review
I bought this tablet because I wanted something smaller compared to my larger tablet. I didn't want a iPad because I have a iPhone and I didn't want to pay more than 150ish for the tablet. I considered getting the Nexus 7 but I couldn't justify spending 200 on something I will only probably use for a few months and then put away somewhere. After reading some of the reviews I decided to go with this tablet because A. Asus makes the Nexus 7 and B. It looked basic enough for me to get what I want out of it. I basically wanted a watered down Nexus 7.
When I first received it, I set it up right out of the box and noticed it was running really choppy and slow. I figured it was because it needed to be charged fully and restarted. ... full review
"Warranty is as good as they say" - By April Polo (Miami, FL)
I see that some people want to know if Square trade is worth it....it absolutely is. I have not used it for my ipad but I used it for my son's ipod touch. A week after getting it, he jumped in the pool with it in his pocket. I called Square Trade and they offered me a couple of options. I chose the one that was the most convenient for me. The best part is that I can still use my warranty again. Their customer service is excellent, they are friendly and efficient. i wouldn't buy any other warranty for my electronic devices. Buying this one for my ipad now. :)
"The G-Tab Quantum is an excellent tablet that rivals most quad cores out on the market." - By Michael
The user interface is slick and runs the Android 4.2.2 version. It has the 4KPlayer app which allows for all formats to be played on the tablet. That particular video player supports hardware acceleration and plays all the formats (including 720 and 1080) flawlessly. It can handle several applications at the same time. I'm impressed, and this is a great buy. 5/5.
