Wish I hadn’t spent all my extra monies already this month…

Same price with free shipping on ebay.

TONS of great reviews (4.7 out of 5.0) over at and very good reviews (4.5 out of 5.0) over at

I got the 7" version free from Sprint about two weeks ago. The specs are nearly identical except mine has a slightly faster processor and 3G/4G data support. If this one was unlocked and had some sort of mobile data support, I’d recommend it. As a wifi only tablet, there are just a ton of better values out there. Samsung missed with these tablets and they’re getting sold now at blow out prices just about everywhere (hence why sprint gave me one for free). It’s not, strictly speaking, a bad tablet but for the money you can get so much more. I’d say pass on this one.

Thanks for posting about your experience & suggestions!

I would honestly pay the $5 for shipping any buy from WOOT before dealing with an unknown eBay seller. WOOT, and their parent AMAZON, have always been lightning fast in dealing with any problems. That makes the extra worth it to me…

does this have bluetooth

It does but I can’t see anything whether that includes keyboards:

Getting one for my wife for a late mothers day gift.

You’ll forgive my lack of correct terminology, but can I get this to use the data plan on my phone? I commute five days a week, and would like to watch Netflix on a bigger screen than my phone. I already own a Xoom, but it is way too heavy to lug around everywhere. (Kicking myself now…should have waited!)

I’ve been looking for another tablet for a “household” tablet. I got my Nexus 7 from a friend for a relative steal, I do NOT see other tablets that appear to be even close to the quality and specs even close to this price point. Do you have suggestions? The reviews of this are pretty nice. I have no use for a device with 3g/4g/telco subsidized slavery, just one with two cams that are better than .3mb. DO share better devices with better values than this, I’ll likely jump for one.

I did purchase this tablet a few woots ago. I use it to browse the internet and play a few games. I did a lot of research before making this purchase and it was well worth it. For the money you can not go wrong. For my use its fast, responsive and has great battery life. I do not want 3G/4G service and preffer only the wifi.

I have used the Bluetooth to connect to a speaker and I have had no issues with it.

All in all you would be hard pressed to find a better deal on an 8 inch tablet that offers the same specs that the Galaxy Tab offers.

The word you’re looking for is hotspot, and some call it tethering. Although tethering is what I call it when you use a usb cable, a physical tether, it’s been changing meaning so tethering now usually means wifi hotspot or using a cable, both.

The answer is it depends, some providers require mo money to allow you to use your data how you like, but it has been easing up. I use tmobile and it’s no extra charge to use a hotspot or tether.

So if you can use your phone as a hotspot then sure, this tablet can connect to it, and it’s a great solution for a lot of folks.

Some older androids need an app like pdanet to hotspot.

Thanks for answering my question. I was going to say tethering, but I wasn’t sure if that was still the word to use. :slight_smile: Anyway, I actually have T-Mobile, and a three year old phone, so we will see if the phone likes the new baby in the house feeding off of it!

We have a couple of the 7 inch versions of this 8 inch Galaxy Tab.

While some folks will bicker about screen resolution not being HD or it not having a Quad core CPU, these work perfectly fine for general tablet use. We are happy with ours.

In fact, the one thing we’d change? Go with the 8 inch screen being sold here on Woot today. 7 feels just a bit too tight but 8 is still very compact while still being nicely portable and packable.

@cascade2k, I disagree with your assertion that the Galaxy Tabs are bad values.

They are solidly built and nicely designed. Samsung kept the specs under control to keep the pricing down.

And your Sprint 7 inch Tab was not “free”. Just as with smartphones, you are paying for it over time via your data plan. That Sprint deal is a good one if you were already planning to buy a cellular data plan, but you are paying for the tablet.

I agree, 8" is the sweet spot. Anything smaller is OK if you have Eyes of Eagle; anything larger is OK if you have Hands of Wilt Chamberlain.

ps: Don’t overlook the 8" Notes in the side sale. For $50 more, you get the Really Excellent pen features and a quad core in the same form factor.

Really? What you are asserting in your last sentence is a LOT.I honestly can’t think of a better $150 8" tablet.
