Rated 4 out of 5 by marmite my first tablet
Im really pleased with it, there was a minor fault only 3 months after getting tab, but it was quickly sorted, we are human so this happens, I was so impressed that I decided to get more samsung items, HD tv and 3D bluray player system, also pleased with.
The tab fills in quite nicely as a pc, it synchronised with outlook which I use a lot, and with a free office package I can still open and update my documents, saying that it was a bit better after I got a bluetooth keyboard, so utilising the sceen full, a lot more portable than my net book pc, and again with free apps connected to wifi printer, so all in all a good bit of kit

Rated 4 out of 5 by New to tablets Nice unit
Only had it for a couple of weeks. Display is very good, it's easy to use and a god size ( 8" ), seems fast to use too.. However design. Why place two stereo speakers on the bottom ? If you hold it sideways as you would to view a film etc, then both speakers are on one side ? Or if you hold it upright, they speakers are at bottom or top, or even against your body when sitting. It is lightweight and easy to use though
Also bought a Samsung SDXC UHS-1 64gb memory card...transfer speeds are nowhere near the claims for the card ? around 18mb/s read and 10mb/s write. Card claims up to 70mb/s read. Is that a card limitation or tablet ? Not a big deal so far though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pgrillone What Ive been waiting for
I've owned a lot of different tablets over the years, and it always seems like you have to accept some sort of compromise. Samsung makes quality products, and now with the Tab 3 8.0, I have everything I need in a tablet.
The tablet is rock solid, smooth, and quick.
the Camera takes wonderful shots, for a tablet. The video is OK and that's fine, its not like i'm making a movie here.
the screen is bright and colorful, I'm sure others later down the road will come out with higher resolution but to my aged eyes, the text is clear and not pixelated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maggie Good product overall, but insufficient information on setting up.
Product is in my opinion over-priced as compared with other well known tablets. Only cover/stand available is inadequate and over priced. Found quick start guide (only instructions available) to be (a) difficult to read (b) misleading regarding sim and sd card. (no explanation regarding usage of enclosed sim and sd card) Difficult to change from portrait to landscape mode and vice versa. On positive side sound superior compared with other tablets and excellent picture quality. General use is pleasurable, but this is spoiled by above criticisms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magicferg Great product with lots of features.
Got the Tab 3 for Christmas and loved it straight away. Easy to set up fast and effective only one grumble it wont support Blinkbox which I find a bit odd.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sam11 excellent product and value for money
Always used apple so was bit confused whether to or not to buy different brand, but didn't want to spend premium price for a tablet and the offer was too good to be missed so bought. It has everything i need and the quality of screen and the built is excellent. Battery life is excellent, fast browsing, good apps, very user-friendly, 16gb memory card and a year free accidental insurance well worth it, the only issue is camera, which is not upto scratch, but ok for the normal occasional use. Tablet is not for professional photo shoot so that's not a issue for me. Overall very pleased with the purchase.
