    Is this device worth $200 w/LTE from Verizon right now or should I try my luck again with the Nexus 7?

    Verizon is currently having $200 off Samsung tablets as I'm sure they are dumping inventory for the 2014 edition. Size is not a huge factor in the decision and I primarily use it for watching movies when traveling and web browsing.

    Wondering if you guys just feel it's outdated at this point.

    Edit: Nevermind, $399 price is reflective of $200 off advertisement.

    It's $200 ($249 on their web page) with a 2 year contract. The minimum plan is $30/month, making the device $969 (plus taxes and fees) total. Even buying it outright is $449, which is a bit expensive.

    The older version has a lower screen resolution. I used mine for mostly drawing and the rez was fine for that. When watching an HD content however the lower rez does become very noticeable. Still watchable but definitely not sharp and some pixelation.
    Also for web browsing its perfectly fine.

    I'm happy with mine, but usually only recommend getting Note if you need a stylus. Otherwise I normally recommend the Nexus line.
