Overall, I find I really like this tablet, in spite of some glitches and issues. Read the reviews carefully. If you can deal with the issues and get this tablet at a good price, I think you will be happy with it.
Update: As of this date (June 18, 2013) the 500T is #31 on the top 100 best selling "laptops" list and has been in the Amazon top 100 sales ranks for 244 days running. That surprised me quite a bit. So it seems there are quite a few who like this rig!
Summary: Purely as a "tablet" experience, my Android tablets are far superior. However, it runs Win 8 which is a huge plus if you need that capability and opens a lot of new doors. So, it is a definite trade-off and one should consider carefully. Given the price, a small Ultrabook is a reasonable alternative, in my opinion, when you have the keyboard attached. However, without the keyboard, then a direct tablet vs. tablet comparison is the better "apples to apples" view. So already you can see both the dichotomy and the attraction. What is "desktop mode" without the trackpad (or mouse) and keyboard? A mess! So the dock is essential in desktop mode (for me, anyway). And then, in tablet mode, one compares this to a good Android tablet and the Android wins (in my opinion) overall as a much better experience. So what you are paying for here is a device that can live in both worlds... sort of a "jack of all trades and master of none" situation. The ultrabook wins hands down for desktop uses and Android (or ipad) wins as a tablet...but the 500T wins when you need (or want) both in one slim, portable device. And the 500T is not without it's charms (great screen, long battery life, etc.).Read more ›
S-Pen/Wacom Input: 5 out of 5 Stars
As anyone would probably guess, the S-Pen is Samsung's branded version of the Wacom pen. The screen has palm rejection meaning that the screen ignores touch input as long as it detects the tip of the pen near the screen; this function allows the user to rest his or her hand on the screen while writing. Therefore, the user gets a writing experience that resembles using a real ink pen on paper.
Writing on the screen is a breeze when you get acclimated to it. I hardly ever run into lag unless I am running a load of other programs.
The included S-Pen Is OK for a quick message to jot down. However, if you have an hour and fifteen minute class that requires note taking, you should probably consider getting the S-Pen with the eraser. It can be purchased on Amazon for under $20.
The S-Pen also doubles as a mouse.Read more ›
I have not clocked battery life scientifically, but so far it is lasting terrifically long, easily enough to last through all my computing needs, such as overnight shifts in the ER, long travel and work days, etc. Its longevity is putting traditional laptops to shame.
The tablet works well with all programs so far. I have noticed no issues so far, when running multiple applications in several windows. The tablet fits into the Samsung keyboard like a glove and with good functionality, then slips into tablet mode. I think the accellerometer is a bit slow, with a slight delay when turning the tablet from horizontal to vertical. However, thusfar this is only a very minor disadvantage.
It could also do well to have a physical key on the shell to bring up the virtual keyboard. There are applications that insist on taking up the entire screen, not allowing access to the taskbar where the keyboard icon "lives." With regard to the on-screen keyboard in tablet mode, it works far better than expected. I can actually use correct typing technique and go quite quickly.Read more ›
