Rated 1 out of 5Â by kwiddle 4 out of 4 tablets DOA
I ordered this tablet with high hopes. The first one I received worked great, until I realized it wasn't charging. I did everything I could to get it to charge. I returned it and received another one. This one wouldn't even turn on. We (technical support and myself), tried everything. I returned that one. The next two I received had the exact same problems. The 3rd replacement wouldn't charge and the 4th wouldn't turn on. Each time I was assured a working replacement would be sent to me. I never received one. I wouldn't have loved this tablet if it worked.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JEF15 Device? Great! Data plan? Problems
I buy HP electronics, and this Slate 7 device is excellent so far. Setting up the free data plan with T-Mobile, however, is another story. Set aside a half day, at least, for telephoning. I suggest NOT using the PDF manual provided on the HP site. Instead, call the T-Mobile number, in this case I called 1-877-778-2106. You need three key pieces of data: your sim card number, your IMEI number found in the "settings" page under "about," and your activation code. HP does NOT have the sim card number and the activation code! If your sim card is already installed, pop it out of your device, get a magnifier, and write down the number. The T-Mobile people will supply the activation code--if you are lucky! Once you give the tech your info, the rest is easy. Relatively! Best of luck! The whole process may take a while, so be prepared.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JoeB242 Great tablet features for price.
This is a great little tablet for work. While I have a few mobile devices, most are wifi-only. The HP Slate is terrific especially while I travel since it includes 4G for life. The 200Mb of data is sufficient as I use Wi-Fi when its available. I have no complaints about the Slate.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DanSh Great device!
The addition of the HD and T-Mobile limited service is great. I found the tablet to be of excellent quality with easy to reach buttons and excellent response. The screen clarity is outstanding and the sound quality with the BEATS software to be superior. The quality of the cameras leave a less than good taste to the operator, but I didn't buy it for the photographic quality. This is a very high quality instrument with an outstanding price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by smushkat Great form factor & features
I was looking to try out one of the 7" tablets for a while - I have the opposite end of the spectrum, the x2 Envy Split & love that, but sometimes 13" of tablet is a bit much. After I started using the Slate 7, I really started liking it a lot - it's very light weight and comfortable to hold. Performance seemed good, had the daughter try out a few of her games & the video performance looked smooth. Maybe a bit too well because it's now the daughter's tablet!! That will actually work out well - we've been holding off on getting her a cell phone, but this device with the 200MB data plan is exactly what she really needs. The tablet is small enough and light enough for her to carry in the backpack, and if she can send off a quick text if she needs to reach us, or use one of those calling apps to make a quick voice call. If she can get it on Wifi, all the better.
Overall I'm very pleased with the purchase & the value of the tablet. The daughter says her only request is to produce some more colorful cases! We bought one of those generic 7" tablet cases, mostly fits but it's still a bit hard to get to the buttons on the back.
