This review is from: Sony Xperia Z SGP311U1/B 10.1-Inch 16GB Tablet (Personal Computers)
The Xperia Tablet z is a very good tablet and it is pretty fast The desplay is bright with vivid colors. my videos play all the way through with no loading. I only gave it 4 stars ibecause; yes it supports an sd card but you can only put music, pictures and video on it. I would like to see Sony make a tablet that has an sd card for all apps or an update that handles this problem. The second thing is I can't figure out how to connect my printer. After instalilng cloud print, there aren't any printing options in any website. You'd think for a tablet that is so easy to use there would be an easier way to connect my printer. I have been working on this for 4 days I have even e-mailed Sony but have gotten no response. I have had my Xperia Tablet z for over a month. yes I would recommend this tablet.

Great tablet, September 17, 2013
By Timothy A. Peterson (Tacoma, WA)
This review is from: Sony Xperia Z SGP311U1/B 10.1-Inch 16GB Tablet (Personal Computers)

1. Very light. My wrist gets tired holding a ten inch in landscape mode. So the more weight you can save, the better. This one fills the bill. The light weight makes it a viable option over a seven inch tablet.

2. Waterproof! This was not my reason for getting it, but it's a nice perk. I've run it under water and it works as advertised. The peace of mind knowing that if I spill a drink I'm not going to ruin my $500 investment is nice.

3. Expandable memory. Google doesn't seem to think we should be allowed to use memory cards. They want to force us to use their online storage. This is stupid. What about when I'm somewhere that I don't have wifi or network coverage? What if I don't want my documents stored online? This is why I'm not sold on the Google Nexus line of products.

4. Compatibility with peripherals. You can use bluetooth, but for lack of a bluetooth mouse I plugged in a regular one with a USB to micro USB adapter and it worked flawlessly! Using the same adapter you can plug in USB flash drives to transfer data. All tablets and phones should be able to do this. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a full USB port. I have to use an adapter. But since only select few Windows 8 tablets have full size USB ports, I guess I can't complain too much. Don't get your hopes up about plugging in your favorite portable hard drive or dvd drive, though. Tablets don't put out enough power with their small batteries to power these devices.

5. Premium quality and feel. Every time I look at it and feel it I'm impressed at its simple elegance. It feels sturdy, yet is very slim and light. Doesn't have a lot of bells and wistles, but it doesn't need them. It just looks and feels good.

6. Screen quality. The viewing angles are good, colors vibrant, resolution great. No complaints.

7. Stamina mode. With this engaged standby time is greatly enhanced. Put it to sleep and come back to it a day later with hardly any loss of power. Granted, there are apps you can download to do the same thing, but Sony gets props for including something useful like this standard.


1. Charges slowly. This is unfortunate. It comes with a good speed charger, but other charges don't seem to charge it fast enough. When watching a movie or playing a game the charger can barely keep pace and charging slows to a crawl. I shouldn't have to stop what I'm doing just to allow the device to charge faster.

2. Battery life only average. Overall, for such a slim device, I'm surprised it gets the battery life it does. Guess it's a tradeoff for the small package, but it doesn't last a whole day with steady use.

3. Lack of dedicated peripherals. Sony needs to offer their own bluetooth keyboard case since other manufacturers aren't stepping up in this area. Peripherals can add so much to a tablet's utility, but there isn't anything available that really seems like it was made for this tablet. The one case I did buy for it is heavy and adds bulk. I don't use it because it detracts from the reason I got it: to have a slim and light tablet. Maybe this is less of a complaint and more of a praise for the product.

4. No dedicated micro HDMI port. This seems to be a trend with tablets and phones. In order to cut down on weight and cost they require an MHL adapter to connect to HDMI - essentially making your charging port two ports in one. Not a fan. Keeping an extra adapter that you have to plug in separately is inconvenient. At least it works with the generic MHL adapter I bought. I can't say the same thing for my Galaxy S3 phone which requires a special Samsung brand MHL adapter.

5. Product update loses good features. The preinstalled software isn't bad, and the virtual button layout is good. But when you download the newest android update the home, back, and list buttons move from the left bottom of the screen to the middle. Sony, please fix this! One handed use is no longer practical. It was better before. Also, Sony had a nice screen dimming toggle available from the home screen that is no longer there. Sony took the android OS and improved on it, but with the update those features are lost.

6. Speaker placement. To its credit, the speakers put out good quality sound and are sufficiently loud. However, the speakers are placed on the sides toward the bottom. When holding in landscape, your hands will cover these speakers. Having to make a conscious effort to uncover the speakers to get the best sound is less than perfect.

Overall: Super good if you want something light that feels good in the hand, looks good, and offers unique features you won't find in other tablets. Offers versatile performance with a processor that seems fast enough to accomplish whatever you throw at it and a screen that looks great. It's expensive but worth it.

Perfect tablet for eyes but remove screen Protector: A different kind of review; Found a perfect sleeve/case combo(updated 9/17), September 13, 2013

This review is from: Sony Xperia Z SGP311U1/B 10.1-Inch 16GB Tablet (Personal Computers)
All of the other reviews are spot on: the best tablet currently available.
(but remove the stupid clear screen protector that is pre-installed and useless -it will not remove Sony logo(is a myth), just remove it slowly as you would with any ptotector on a large screen. Trust me, it will significantly improve clarity,glare and reduce smudges. No other vendor I know does this with such a screen.Put your own protector on if you must, but remove the pre-installed one since it will get marked and scratched eventually and you may forget that it exists in the first place. I missed it was even there until I read about it. Made a world of difference when i removed. I NEVER use a screen protector for any Gorilla Glass type display-waste of money when loss of clarity is weighed against glare reduction. Gorilla type glass is its own protection, hence the name Gorilla...)

So why repeat what others have said? I want to draw your attention to another benefit, for those of us(in my case middle aged)who have to keep increasing fonts due to our vision. Well the Xperia Tablet with the Sony screen clarity and portrait friendly aspect, cannot be beaten by ANY tablet, even the Ipad retina 4.

A bold statement some would say...the less charitable however would say its damned foolish...or even inaccurate. Why? Because it has a lower screen resolution than the ipad or Nexus 10? True. But better specs do not necessarily mean clearer visibility. The hardware and software of the tablet has to support the screen resolution. Just because the tablet is capable of that screen resolution, does not mean that it actually achieves it. Don't get me wrong...both the Nexus 10 and Ipad retina have brilliant screen resolution, but the Xperia, to me anyway, is just as good to my naked aging eye. But 'just as good ' is not better. Sony's screen technology and software makes the difference in clarity. I find that with the ipad 4 the text doesn't look right . I would probably much prefer the retina display on the forthcoming ipad mini actually. I think the retina type displays on larger devices make the type look too bold somehow-that is the best i can describe it.

There is a big difference between clear text that is easy on the eye and text that is just too crisp. Sony has the best screen technology ever-it is what they are the best at,IMHO. Their use of contrast,saturation and light, makes all the difference.

But, and there is a but, i did not feel that way about 18 months ago and loved the Retina 4(though not the limited Apple Ecosystem, lack of widgets,customization etc): so vision has a major part to play in this.

Just something I wanted you to know, especially if you are in your forties and want the best tablet to use for the next few years. This is it.

Sept 16th:I know so many of you do not know how to find a case or a sleeve that does not mess up the awesomeness of this slim light tablet. i found the perfect solution:

91)Incipio Feather Case for the Sony Xperia Z Tablet - Obsidian Black (SE-201),which will still allow the Sony to fit inside the:
Alchemy Goods Redmond Tablet Sleeve for New iPad and iPad2

The sleeve is gorgeous(see my review for that) and has a leathery look to it, classy yet practical,with great protection. The incipio adds zero bulk and no discernible weight.Trust me on this. I purchased and returned 5 cases to provide this solution. Remember that the Xperia is a pretty tough tablet as well. Like this review if it helps you please!!!

GMYLE (TM) Black PU leather Laichee Pattern Sleeve Case Bag Cover with extra pocket for Microsoft Surface RT / Samsung Galaxy Tablet Tab Note 10.1 N8000 N8010 N8013 / iPad / Nexus 10 / Asus TF300 TF700 10 10.1 inch

Slimmer sleeve-looks just like leather-little bulk. Fits like a glove. Great if you want a slimmer profile. Ten bucks delivered.
