Very good alternative tablets would be Sony's Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact or Apple's iPad Mini 3, sometimes for half the price. HP's Pro Slate 8 is actually only worthwhile for users who need security features or a docking port. However, the corresponding docking station is also quite expensive. Too bad that digitizing handwritten notes does not function more reliably and is not explained enough. It would have likely been an important criterion for some buyers otherwise. We deduct a point from the rating for that.

Users in the market for a Windows tablet with outstanding battery life but with a modest budget should take a look at the HP Stream 7. If other qualities matter as well, the decision might be more difficult: the camera modules, for example, are mediocre at best and although the display is bright, the color accuracy leaves to be desired. The grainy panel is prone to finger prints as well and simply doesn't look very upscale.
While the HP Stream 7 is about as fast as the competition, we did encounter occasional stutters and lag. We appreciate the low power consumption and the well-... Full review
Like its previous iteration, the ElitePad 1000 is a well-built tablet that’s also one of the most versatile mobile devices available. And with updated internals, it’s also better equipped to take on more than just basic productivity.
But its price is hard to justify, especially when you start factoring in accessories. The tablet itself can be found online for about $700 if you shop around. But add $200 for the keyboard-packing Productivity jacket, and you’re up to $900. For $30 more than that, you could get a much more powerful Surface Pro 3 with a Core i3 proce... Full review
It seems to us that the HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is trying to be all things to all people. That’s somewhat understandable because business-oriented tablets get used for personal tasks, too, but it means the company has set an almost impossible goal for itself. But that’s at least qualified by the fact that this device is doing it smarter than most would.
It offers what is a relatively slim and durable base unit for a Windows 8 tablet, at the expense of flexibility; but then offers the flexibility as a series of add-ons, some of which provide very significant benefits inclu... Full review
The tablet is awesome but since KitKat. The tablet stops responding and it algs at times. OverheatsLess
I compared this dell venue 8, Asus transformer, Samsung galaxy tab 3, Samsung galaxy note 8 and HP netbook with touchscreen. I am keeping the Omni 10because it is a great little machine. I can use the micro USB to USB female adapter and attach my external hard drive. I can listen to my music that was burned using media creator from roxy and work on any of my old word docs because it came with office 2013 I only wish that it had the reading mode of the note 8 which I love on the note because I can reduce the glare of the web and kindle app. You can use external sd card and store both kindle and adobe reader on the external card or hard drive so you dont need a huge internal hard drive. This does what it is supposed to do it gives me a mobile pc desktop! I like it much better than the surface; yes I tried it too. I did not like the power connector on the surface. The four little connectors are just way too plasticky and fragile. This is a much better alternative and a better value at the same price ($ 349 at office depot holiday sale). This is a solid build. I only wish that Microsoft had not gone the way of google requiring a windows account to install apps but Apple started this craziness with iTunes and everyone followed. I miss the old days when my relationship was between me and my pc typing away in my office. Now I always feel big brother overlooking my shoulder whether its Microsoft, Google, Apple, HP, Samsung, its kind of stalkerish.Less
I bought this tablet,not thinking too much about it based on previous experience with Coby Kyros and Craig Midi. The HP pleasantly surprised me. It does work quiet well for me,browsing via wi fi is actually quite reasonable,camera is good , and not much to complain about. I've used an I pad as well,and found this one a bit more user friendly than the I pad.Less
I've only had this for a few days so far but this is an initial review. What I like the most is that the 2 antennas together are MUCH better than the other UMPC that I had -- I can go much, much further from my wi-fi routers than I used to -- and still have great reception. This is one thing that I have wanted more of and the HP Slate gives it. I like that it has a nice screen, I can see well on it and the touchscreen part of it is very receptive (without being too receptive) and that is great. I like the two cameras (one on back for regular pictures and one on front for self-pictures and video conferencing). While the manual says that it doesn't exceed any heat limits, it does seem to get a bit warm to my liking. The other thing that I hope for is a spare battery as I use this for my job and that way I can just keep on going (the battery use for me seems to go about 4 hours). However overall I really love this and think it is awesome and am glad I made this purchase.Less
