    Greetings! I'm in the market for a tablet and wanted to get the opinion of those who have owned this tablet to see if someone were buying a tablet today should I consider this or should I look elsewhere. The Note 10.1 draws me in because of the S Pen functionality and suite of apps. I really like the idea of taking notes by hand via a stylus as well as being able to convert that writing to text. What other tablets can give this functionality? I went in to Best Buy and the Samsung guy there was talking up the Tab A because it's the only one there with the S Pen suite, but to me the Note 10.1 looks like just as good an option (if not better), especially if I can get one for around the same price.

    We still like our Note 10.1 (2014), although the technologically-declined Darling Bride has forgotten how to use the S-pen functions :p

    It's a great piece of gear, though... even though it's a little dated, it's still a solid performer.

    I think that the tablet is still very, very usable. It is fast, it has a much better resolution than equivalent Samsung tablets and the screen is simply gorgeous. It is also a solid performer. One reason that Samsung has not updated it is that it is really difficult to improve on it. Even a faster processor may be not that noticeable. A new version may be a tad lighter and it may have an AMOLED screen, although I do not know how much this screen can be improved.

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is a bit heavy but for in office note taking it's amazing. Not a bad media device either. It's still worth getting.

    I just bought a Note 10.1 2014, because I couldn't find any of the newer tablets that I liked better. I immediately updated it to 5.1, and am very happy with it.
