I've owned this tablet for about a year and have not experienced one problem or glitch. It is very reliable the web research that I sometimes do as well as keeping up with the news, current events, weather, email and it takes good videos and photos. In other words I LIKE IT. The micro SD expandable memory is also a big plus to store my files and photos. Excellent value tablet!

I like Samsung. They make quality products. Don't buy this 8g version though. You can't move enough apps to a microsd card and the tablet gets bogged down. With the size of Apps today it gets too full quickly and that is without music photos or videos even added to the fixed memory.

      Comments about Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T280 8 GB Tablet - 7"" - Plane to Line (PLS) Switching - Wireless LAN Quad-core (4 Core) 1.30 GHz - Black:

      I am disappointed. You can't download apps straight to the sd card, the device storage is almost full when you get it and even when apps are moved to the sd card a lot od device storage is still used up. I bought a 64gb sd card that has 57gb left and I can't download anything bracelets my tablet is full. I was told by a Samsung rep at a retailer that it does screen mirroring and it doesn't seem to. if this is just for streaming, email and browsing than the marketing of the big expandable storage is misleading.

          Love this tablet. I am not tech savy however, this is an invaluable tool in my life. I would recommend this item to any and everyone. Helps with keeping me from being bored. Allows me to go places I other wise could not, also allows me to research anything I want too. Keep up the great work, and happy holidays.

                                  I've had several tablets, cell phones , and the like through the years, dropped them , sat on them in my back pocket, even laid on one, but I had this tablet maybe a week and I dropped it on the carpet in the house and it shattered the front screen like it was hit by a line-drive baseball. It is way too fragile for everyday use.

                                                      I am a huge fan of Samsung products and this Galaxy Tab A definitely is a major plus in my book. It could be a little lighter as far as weight goes, but I love it.

Its small and light so i can take it with me to the job site. The photo quality is excellent and camera is easy to use. I also bought another one for my grand daughter for her birthday. We also like the fact that these tabs use Google and that opens up a whole world of benefits and online security.
