"Most productive and useful tablet I have tested & used."4.5 starson by VA-PDX
Pros: Handwriting recognition is very good; split screen options keep work flowing; system is fast &responsive; Android 4.04 is robust; screen is clear &bright; sound & speakers are great; quality of construction and case is strong; SD expansion car
Cons: The lack of micro-USB has been an inconvenience, but power cable has a standard USB to connect to computer or charger. For $500, it should have come with a simple but functional case/cover such as the one made for it by iBlason.
Summary: After 30 days of use, this is becoming one of my most productive work tools in that I am able to take meeting / phone / random notes by hand and (using EverNote app) have my work stored electronically from the initial point of creation. It is helping me achieve my goal to make nearly all my notes and work electronic so I no longer lose information due to it being buried in pages of a planner or in chicken scratch I can no longer read. The fact that the Note 10.1 can decipher my handwriting is still a wonder and mystery to me.
