Pros Very responsive when downloading, installing & opening apps. Battery life is decent under normal usage, screen looks great, access to the entire Play store, TV SideView & the IR blaster & it is water/dust proof - which for me is a necessity.
Cons The speakers aren't great, they're barely good.
Summary The speakers are limited in reproducing any of the sounds from the low end of the spectrum simply because it is sooo thin - it is better with headphones, but only slightly; the new Kindle Fire HD, which I also have, has the best speakers I've ever heard on a tablet.
One thing I've found is that no one makes one table that meets all needs - you'd need the speakers from the Kindle Fire HD, the retina screen from the iPad (or the Nexus 10's screen), ability to add memory to the device, and then your own personal preferences on OS, and other options. What I've compromised for sound in this tablet, I feel I've made up for in other areas.
Pros Expandable memory, Best display,smooth operation,light weight, very thin, water proof etc.
Cons Battery takes a while to charge, but this is no major issue.
Summary If you are looking for a good tablet with expandable memory, nice display and a decent processor look no further, Sony Experia Tablet Z is the answer. Its lightweight and water proof too.
Pros Very good look
SD card slot
Get the charging dock, very well made
Cons Sony launcher is slow, get another one on the app store
Ports hard to access cause of water seal
Summary I really love this tablet and I disagree with most negative points in the cnet review, almost look like the reviewer has a completely different model or is not honest.
6-Android OS loads up any Android app.
7-Add 64g SD to go to 96G on the 32g model.
8-Updates right away to newer OS. ( Not KitKat yet )
Cons 1-Leaves finger prints and attracs dust.
2-Long to charge. ( not a big thing )
Summary Over all, a very good tablet. Very happy. You can't have it all with any of the tablets out there, so Sony's is one of the top one in my mind.
Pros Looks great, Water proof, fast, expandable memory, etc.
Cons None really.
Summary Really impressed with this one. Being waterproof makes it great for if you've got kids or are simply just prone to accidents.
