Rated 5 out of 5 by ineedthatgadget Lovin' this!
I have the Galaxy Tab 7.0 and loved it, but the SPen really gets me. So I had to have this one. LOVE it so far. I love the smaller size, it really fits well in the hand and is much more comfortable to use than the 10.1. I have had one of those and that is why I purchased the 7.0. The pen works almost flawlessly for every application I've put it to. I've had a little bit of trouble with the write to text option, but it may work itself out when I get more familiar with the program. There is quite a bit of bloatware, but nothing I can't deal with. I would like to see more accessories at launch too... I want my device protected from moment one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by drakul123 Was the best purchase I have ever made in a tablet
I liked it even more than the ipad which I stopped using. But after the latest update from Samsung it just went downhill all the way. Is not working at all, I even tried to reset all data and still does not work properly. It kept freezing saying "touchwiz has stopped" I researched and found that touchwiz is nothing from android, rather an interface used by Samsung in their devices.... Advice? If you can't keep it working well you guys are better off not even installing it.
I hope at some point I know how to fix it; I have tried all ways available online and nothing.
From a great tablet, is just a useless piece of plastic at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyL Galaxy Note 8.0 is the best Android tablet to date
I have owned many different brands and sizes of tablets over the past 2-3 years and the Note 8.0 is by far the best one I have bought. I have to say I like the Android Ecosystem a lot better than the iOS Ecosystem mainly because I don't have to use iTunes to do everything. I can plug the USB cable into my laptop and drag and drop my music, photos or videos right into the device. I can add more storage by adding a microSD card. I can put my music, pictures or videos on the microSD card instead of putting them directly on the device. I can install apps from app stores like Google Play or Amazon. I have the FREEDOM to do basically anything I want to the device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bizlady I love my Note 8.0
I've wanted a tablet for some time, but it took me a good 6 months before I actually made a decision. It wasn't until I heard about the handwriting capability, which enabled me to take notes in my own handwriting, that I made my decision. I have had the Note 8.0 for about 5 weeks and absolutely love it. I take it with me everywhere. I used the handwriting capability at a conference, taking notes for 2-1/2 days without having to recharge the battery. It was simple to use and to create files for what I wrote. With the start of the new school year coming, I would definitely recommend this as an option for college students.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pmhanlon1369 works well but gets hot fast, don't put it on your bare legs!
It's an excellent little tablet with great features but tends to get really warm in the back rather quickly.
Pros: It has great graphics, excellent sound, and the android OS is nimble and fast.
Cons: it hates to run things like hulu+ and will just shut down that app instead of playing whatever show you wanted to watch. Also, it heats up. Fast. You need something between you and your bare leg or you'll be knowing it's there rather quickly. Wear jeans when using this on your lap.
Overall: I love the thing. It has its quirks but they're easily overlooked by all the things it does well for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MDBoldurian it's the first thing I pick up in the morning and the last thing I put down at night
Everything about this product, I love. When I researched the Samsung Galaxy Note® 8.0 it seemed like the most practical choice. After owning the Samsung Galaxy Note® 8.0, it has exceeded my expectations. Simply put it is the best out there. I could not live without my Samsung Galaxy Note® 8.0, it's the first thing I pick up in the morning and the last thing I put down at night. From my professional needs with it's Note ability, to synching with my contacts on my cell and acting as a remote for my television, the Samsung Galaxy Note® 8.0 has become an essential part of my every day needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MyLilycat Best part is the S-pen, love it
Love the use of the S-pen on the Samsung Galaxy Note® 8.0 (Wi-Fi). It easier and faster than using the keyboard. the only drawback is that I have to write slowly & clearly enough so it can read my writing. It misses now and them. But still enjoy not having to type text. Never like texting, so the S-pen is a plus.
Also love the multi-window view. Just wish more apps worked on it.
I did have to send the devise back for a repair once, when it crashed somehow. But since receiving it back it has worked pretty well. Using the internet works great.
I tend to use it as much as my laptop now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ual4720 Best I've Used
I have used the Xoom, Asus Tablets(tf100, 200, 300, 700), and Nexus 7. I liked them all, but this tablet is by far the most versatile and fast that I have ever used. The others I enjoyed using, but this one I can't put down. I've always got something I can use it for, whether taking notes, watching videos, or streaming the internet. I love the S-pen functionality and use it constantly. It is quickly becoming the default way that I write! Good Job samsung, You have won my future business. I will be going to the Note lineup of smartphones as well. The possibilities are endless with this!
