Just...WOW! The Tablet Z is everything other tablets should aspire to as far a size, weight, feel, design, screen, responsiveness. Have only had it two days but it hasn't left my hand (note: hand, as in one-it's so light there is absolutely no strain at all as with other tablets after awhile). The screen is absolutely the best I've seen on a tablet and that includes the iPad. Had it up and running and controlling my Samsung TV by remote in, like, 5 minutes. The slots at the top of the home screen for apps are incredibly useful. I've showed it to a couple people and both of their first words were "WOW" and that's before they even had it in their hands. Sony, you have really and truly outdone yourself this time! Congratulations and thanks tons for the hours and hours and hours of joy this is going to bring me.

This is a really nice looking tablet. It should be for $500. I was thrilled when I got it. After realizing that none of the programs I work with are compatible, I settled for this being just an entertainment tablet. Then I couldn't get it to connect with wifi to anything but the TV, not even my PS3. Then it stopped charging & connecting to computers even when hard wired with the mini usb. Then the SD port stopped working (NEW, within 30 days of purchase). Hope my case was unique, I really wanted to love this tablet.

Love it. Few tips for Sony, though...


from Ottawa, Canada

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

Fantastic. Light, thin, beautiful design, fast. I never considered an iPad due to weight; previously owned Samsung Note 10.1. A suggestion for others - get the charging cradle. It's not just convenient and stylish, but having to open the cover on the charging port all the time is really not a realistic option for me. (If you use headphones a lot you might consider bluetooth headphones for the same reason, if you have $$ to spare). 2 tips for Sony: 1) the Android 4.2 update ruins the nice, "lightly" customized Sony 10" horizontal tablet user interface by replacing it with the plain 4.2 UI, which is really a phone interface. Fix it please!! (I downgraded back to 4.1) 2) White balance of screen is quite "warm" - tweak, perhaps, or better yet, include Xperia colour calibration app? All considered, I love this tablet.


Overall it is a good tablet


from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

I like it so much that I have to sleep with it near my bed. It is so light and powerful. The speed is amazing when compared to my other Toshiba tablet. I do have a slight problem to transfer the videos I saved . I inserted a small micro Sd card inside, and was able to transfer only 3 gb of the videos, but it wont let me transfer after that!!

SONY Xperia Z Tablet a bit on the pricey side...


from Saint Augustine, Florida

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

This is an incredibly thin tablet that's a bit on the expensive side. It has an outstanding design that looks like it could be easy to break in half due to it's thickness (or should I say 'thinness'). Charging is quick with decent battery life. The video quality is stunning, It hands down beats all the other tablets I looked at. But you need to be prepared to pay for that high quality with a price that is at least $200.00 more than any other tablet I've seen. The only complaint I've got is that there's no operating manual in the box. Its taken over many of the functions I used my desk top for. With 32 gigs of memory, I've yet to purchase a memory card despite loading many games and applications. I highly recommend this product.

Slim and sexy tablet


from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

I am a huge Apple fan but I am giving my iPad to my mom after I got my hands on this Tablet Z. It's so sleek and beautiful. I love how lightweight it is and very easy to navigate. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I hear if you have little humans around, it's best to have a waterproof anything - so this tablet does the trick. No accidental drops in water will ruin this. Love, love, love this tablet. I might be an Android fan again!

good product but poor sales


from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

I like Sony product very much,good design.The website said there will be a headphone with tablet z but I do not get it.I call sony but Sony just told me they do not offer headphones for a student account,I can not find this policy anywhere when I bought it! Also the box of tablet z is opened before I get it (it is not a brand new),and there are finger print on the back of the tablet z,some videos inside(not demo video)I really feel sad about it but I don't have a local Sony store,and I understand it always happens when people buy electric products online. Anyway, it is a good tablet but battery doesn't support too long,it is so easy to get finger print at back and hard remove!it is not easy to charge the battery since the waterproof cover.

Great Android Performance Tablet


from Lafayette, CA

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

I am impressed with the performance, fit and finish of the Sony Xperia tablet. It outperforms my 2+ year old Samsung tablet due to faster processor, but then it's more expensive as well. The battery life is good, screen resolution superb. Built-in speakers do a reasonable job, but use headphones for anything serious. It does drop the network connection for no particular reason while all the other wireless devices connected to the same router do not. Hmmm....

Excellent Tablet Overall - a few flaws


from Austin, TX

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

I've had the Xperia Tablet Z for a few weeks now and it really is a beautiful tablet that works flawlessly. My main concern is the battery life which leaves a bit to be desired. A full day of usage which to me means reading pdf textbooks, web browsing, pandora, facebook approx 6 or 7 hours will drain it. Most other tablets I've experienced put that aspect of the Z to shame. However, most other tablets don't weigh a pound or are as thin as a magazine. It's a trade-off for sure.

Great TABLET like it better than the Ipad.


One of the Best Tablets


from Bradenton, Florida

Comments about Sony 16GB Xperia Tablet Z:

Like the size and the graphics are clear. Speed of processor is great and the weight of the tablet is nice. Not too heavy. Very thin and I like that. Having the extra SD space is a plus.
