Rated 4 out of 5Â by mojomohambo Excellent Tablet - replaces a laptop
I use mine with a bluetooth keyboard/folio and it has basically replaced my laptop. The system is fast and works great. Love the option to switch back to a windows desktop and use windows programs and microsoft office right out of the gate. At the pricepoint below $400, you can't beat this. Video looks fantastic! Audio could be better. I only wish there were more accessories and the power port wasn't on the bottom (and wasn't a proprietary plug).

Rated 2 out of 5Â by thorhammer was good for 3 months
The touch screen has stopped working. I can't get past my screen saver to put in password, will contact HP for replacement I hope, I liked the screen resolution and I was learning how to use Windows 8.1. This is disappointing that I have to go this route,. I have 2 other tablets in the household, an Ipad and Samsung and never had this problem. The other issue was that this was finicky connecting to WIFI, I had to constantly enter my network password which I don't experience with the other 2 devices

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bobbi10 This product is awesome!
Ease of use, multiple features, lightweight, convenient, just absolutely perfect! Great salesman when I called to guide me through the product choices. He was incredibly helpful. I just love HP products. Have a long history of product ownership and will never settle for less.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rizzo405 My number 1 device now.
I have had this tablet for 4 months mow, and love it. I rarely open my laptop anymore even though it is pretty new (primarily to find saved picks, music, or docs). I didn't want the Win RT tablets because I thought I would hate the Metro interface, but have found I spend 95% of my time in Metro. I ordered a Micro USB adapter from Amazon ($5 shipped) to allow connecting a thumb drive, phone, mouse, printer, etc. The flaws are the location of the ports, and the charger brick, and length of charger cable. The charging cable is 3 feet long, so you'll be using an extension cord most likely. The charger brick goes in to a "Safety Mode" if there is any sort of power surge, making you think the charger is broke, so to fix this, the charger has to be unplugged from the outlet for 10 mins to allow it to "Reset" itself. The ports are grouped close together at the bottom of the tablet (in landscape position). I have the HP case/stand and the micro USB adapter. The one I ordered turns left and prevents you from using this adapter while charging. A straight adapter prevents you from using the stand if its plugged in, and the charger also causes the tablet to sit funny while using the stand. I ordered a Bluetooth speaker, and keyboard to go with it. Both connect quickly when I turn them on, the Bluetooth on the tablet doesn't make a noticeable difference on the battery. I get through the day without having to attach the power cord. Wifi signal is great, battery life is great especially for the heavy use this thing gets. MS Office is a plus, and there are a few apps preinstalled that show off the tablets perks. The camera is great, the hdmi port mirrors my screen to my TV, allowing streaming of Netflix, Hulu, or your own videos. I have used my TV as a monitor with my Bluetooth keyboard, and mouse to give myself distance from the TV. The wireless printing works great, I really can't say enough good things about this tablet. With the minor flaw in the location of the ports, this is an excellent device for the price. I have less than $360 invested in this with the accessories I've purchased. The tablet is speedy, screen is great, sound is what you'd expect from a tablet, but really good with a Bluetooth speaker, the shortage of apps isn't a problem since you have a full Windows tablet you can always use the browser to get what your looking for. Why is HP keeping this thing a secret?

I am afraid I had to call for a replacement this morning. I used it for four days and and it no longer turns on. Very sad.
