As a college student, aspiring graphic designer/illustrator, and social media junkie, there isn't another tablet I could think of that is as great as the Note Pro! I use this tablet for all of my digital sketching and artwork, taking handwritten notes and learning more about art through social media and internet surfing. This tablet literally has changed my life for the better and I couldn't ask for anything better! From my perspective as a digital artist, I would highly recommend this product to anyone in need of an all purpose sketchbook, portfolio and or reading material. Autodesk Sketchbook is amazing on this device and is literally worth every penny. On the other side of the coin, when it comes to media consumption and mobile note taking, lets just say I use this so much more than my Galaxy S4. Performance on this is outstanding; and you can even create documents, sheets, and presentations! I absolutely love the multi-tasking and magazine interface, it really is great for staying up to date on current events.The only question I have for Samsung is what can this thing not do other than run full-fledged computer software? Seriously, I love my Note Pro, and I felt that I made a great decision. Thank you so much Samsung!

When I bought this item it was purchased with wireless keyboard as I wanted something lighter than my laptop but not a laptop replacement. Just something to sample the possibilities. I've been using the product since Aug 2014 and the biggest positive is the screen resolution and brightness. This has met all expectations and I'm still impressed. As a tablet in general I Iike the product however Samsungs boast a number of features that attracted me but have fallen well short of expections. Wireless mouse and keyboard are not ready for primetime. The Keyboard (Bluetooth) The Keyboard is a cover as well and the tablet presses neatly into the guide to hide and protect the screen. The design overall is good. Unfortunately this device will during every use spit out 10 to 30 duplicate charaters when typing as if the sample rate for a single key stroke started filling the buffer. I've seen nothing on the Samsung site to address this, I have seen write-ups on the web to show this is not a one off. Additionally sometimes the displayed typing is well behind the keystrokes. The S Mouse (Bluetooth) This item I purchased while in Korea and it has a quirk that needs addressing. The mouse will as expected auto connect but will just stop working once or twice during a session. I have to go to the Connections tab and disconnect it, it will then reconnect and most of the time stay connected. Often the location of the pointer is erratic an does not keep up with mouse movement. While the design of all three products is good their overall function as a system is poor. If Samsung products cannot perform at a level that allows the user to take for granted the hardware then as a company they must realized they have failed. Products that just look good end up unused on a shelf or worse yet the trash bin. No I would not recommend this product to a friend. The system as a whole and with Samsung only components cost to much not to work as an integrated system.

User comments about SM-T900 after 9 months of using tablet
from Las Vegas, NV, USA
Comments about Samsung Black Galaxy 12.2" 32GB Tablet:
First a general word of caution to prospective buyers of tablets: there are fundamental differences between Android OS tablets vs Windows/Apple OS laptop/notebooks. Comparing specs for these devices with similar screen sizes can be misleading. Analyze your expected needs thoroughly before making a selection or you may be come frustrated & unhappy with the device. Pros for Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2: 1. As good as it gets for a tablet - no better tablet is currently available 2. High resolution, bright, large screen - great for watching movies, videos & viewing photos 3. Fast boot & operation 4. Thin & light weight 5. Lots of battery power 6. Lower price than equivalent size laptop Cons for Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 1. On screen keyboard is a poor substitute for a physical keyboard. Separate keyboards are available-but at increase size & weight, ultimately defeating the convenience of a tablet. 2. This device's Bluetooth only supports one WIRELESS headset, preventing 2 people from using headphones for watching movies or listening to music during travel. Note that wired adapters are available allowing 2 WIRED headphones to use the single jack on the tablet. 3. Only access available to the internet is via Wi-Fi. This restriction often has been inconvenient. Many times my smart cell phone (i.e. Galaxy S4) has been more useful than the tablet because no Wi-Fi has been available while travelling. Buyer should evaluate if 4G & Wi-Fi needs are a high priority. 4. Primitive file management software of Android OS limits user's ability to access documents, music, & photos on internal or external SD memory card. Document editing is inconvenient (e.g. no copy/paste). A more serious limitation imposed by Android OS 4.4.2 prevents files on external SD memory card from being accessed, viewed & revised. ES3 File Explorer App, or equivalent, is essential for a serious user. 5. I am unable to find a way to keep a log of date, name, version & size of all software updates & downloads. 6. Even though Samsung's introduction of Hancom Office Suite software, as a substitute for MS Windows Office, has significantly improved document creation capability on the tablet, it is slow & cumbersome to produce even a small document. For users of MS Word, Excel, & Powerpoint, it is far easier & faster to compose a document on a computer & transfer it to the tablet. 7. I often encounter website that are incompatible with the Android OS. Even with an App for the specific website often only partial information at the site can be accessed. To gain access to the full website, I must use my computer. In addition, some popular software is not supported by Android OS (e.g. Adobe Flash) preventing popup videos & illustrations from being viewed. 8. Bottom line: A tablet is no substitute for a laptop computer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Ever since my first Samsung cell phone, I have stayed with Samsung for other phones, TV's and now this Tablet.
Love It !!!
from Dallas, TX, USA
I had an Ipad prior to my Samsung Note Pro and I have no regrets switching. You can do so much more on the Galaxy then you can on Ipad. I love the different and unique widgets you can get and most other tablets dont offer these. I just wish I would of switched sooner. Stop being limited on controlling your own device and get something you can design and call your own.
this product is all-around features
I can use it in my every needs on my gadgets. Doing word document, cooking my favorite recipe and a fastest downloading of the apps. You should by this to try my amazing experience.

only issue I have is the occasional video lines across the screen. after they fix that in the software will be a solid 5/5

Received this tablet as Christmas gift. Wanted a tablet for work and home and this easily does everything I wanted... and a few things I didn't know I wanted it to do. I have an S3 and was eyeing possibly getting the Note when the time came to upgrade. Let me tell you, this may not be the type of product advertisement Samsung is looking for in order to sell products, but I no longer see the need. I'm perfectly fine with my S3 now after receiving this. The mobility, the functionality and the screen... it looks absolutely amazing. The S pen functionality is exactly what was needed. Taking notes, editing documents, sketching out designs it's the perfect compliment to an already robust tablet. Can't rave about this thing enough.
