I bought one of these back in Nov-Dec. Couldn’t be more happy with it. My 2 pennies worth is always buy Factory Reconditioned and avoid Refurbished items. There is a big difference.
Bought mine new for twice the price (32 GB) about 18 months ago. Use it daily in my teaching job for PowerPoint decks, marking up PDF files, meeting notes, and more. I have completely ditched legal pads. During the summer it gets used for games, movies and web searching. I load up MicroSDHC cards with movies for entertainment while traveling.
If you scoop one up, visit this young lady’s web site. She has lots of tricks for using the SPen to take notes and gives many demos.
Take Notes with the Galaxy Note
I’m here to second this. From my experience, “factory reconditioned” is like new (with better QA) but you roll the dice on “seller refurbished.”
I know this is not a 2014 version…but is this a deal. Seeing it new on amazon for around 349
I had this version for a couple weeks and returned it only because it doesn’t have an update to Android 4.2 or higher. And I care about that because my wife and I wanted different user accounts.
If you are the only user, this is a powerful tablet, and was the top of the Samsung line before the 2014 and Pro came out in the last year.
I got my 2014 on some other ‘group’ site for $260 a month ago though. Might be worth waiting for another one of those deals to pop up.
Trust me, you don’t want the update. I did update my beautifully working 2013 Note 2 10.1 to Kit Kat and now it is buggy. Even though there are more features in Kit Kat it runs much slower. Trust me, updates are not always improvements.
I’m a happy owner if this tablet. It has it’s quirks but it is a powerhouse for light productivity.
One recommendation is buying an annotation application on the play store called “LectureNotes.”
It is very technical and has a ton of options, but once you set it up properly (mainly go into options and change input to active stylus).
It is like writing on paper with perfect palm rejection, and it has easy pdf export options.
The white is sold out.
