"Before purchasing the Miix 2, I looked at the Nexus and Kindle tablets but I kept coming back to the Windows tablet. I like being able to link this tablet to my laptop and share across platforms. I like the performance of the Intel Bay Trail processor along with the Windows 8 OS. My only problem is that it is a little uncomfortable to hold over a period of time. It seems to be lacking a little in the design of the tablet. Also, I would have liked to have had a USB 2 port and a HDMI port. Overall this is a really good Windows 8 tablet and I would recommend it to anyone purchasing one."
I'm here to write that the tablet I got doesn't come with the Office 2013 activation key sticker, try to contact Lenovo service, and they refuse that this tablet come with the key. But talking to the sales dept, they said it come with it and I don't have to purchase my own product key. Worse experience ever."
"I love it so much since I got it in last month, most of the time I used it rather than my ipad,its lighter and much portable. Especially when I used it at work. its important that it came with the full window office. It works pretty smooth and quite fast ,it also has a nice brightness screen, the battery is really strong than what I expected because I did use for browsing and video for 3 hours and it still showing I got half of the power. I only had a little complain is the speaker volume is not loud enough even I turn it to 100% ..otherwise It almost prefect for everything."
"For the processing power in a small form factor device this is very nice. Having full office to view and edit your documents have proven to be a necessity and the expandable memory is a catch all for those who don't like the idea of cloud memory via internet only in some cases..... Lets not forget you have a FULL desktop to work with (iTunes, 3rdparty programs) don't expect desktop performance but the flow and speed is up to snuff if you will. Applications are hit and miss because of the availability gap with Apple. For info surfing, productivity and overall good starter tablet this is it in my opinion.....did i mention MS office free with this thing :-)"
"I've had the Miix 2 8 for 8 days and I'm still finding settings to play with. For the size of this unit, I'm amazed at the capabilities. Tablets have come a long way since they were first introduced. I was in a computer course in '90 and I think the hard drive was the size of this computer! I can't really say anything bad about this unit, as it is such a joy to use. It is compact, fast, reliable... Just a tip for the people who claim they can't turn it back on from the off state: make sure you exit Windows using the Windows shutdown instead of pushing the power button and hold it long enough to turn it back on. I've been using computers for decades and for me; this is the best thing yet."
"I've been using this for 2 months now and am pretty satisfied. However, I didn't expect to have a white blotch develop on the display so soon - or at all! To be frank, I'm hesitant to send in my new device for repairs; who knows what state I'd get it back in, as these new devices are all glued together! Maybe I can live with the discoloration that shows up on white and other light-coloured backgrounds?
Other than that, it is a good device and fits nicely with my stable of devices. It suits its purpose perfectly - a small, highly portable, full-featured computer."
"This is the first tablet I have owned and I love it. I went with a Windows based over Google or Apple and glad I did. Great screen, powerful and a good value. Bluetooth keyboard case is helpful, as well as a decent stylus. My 12 year old son has a ball with it and I can use for work. The touchscreen goes hinky while charging, which has been only glitch."
Cons: Video card, Display resolution, Wireless card, Memory, Support, Input/Output compatibility, Battery, Bluetooth, Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software, Build Quality, Durability
"I have written along paragraph but the website do not allow the Review to be to long. It has good design but so many unpredictable problems. One is that the blue tooth performance becomes to bad in standby status to use Bluetooth headphones to listen to music after installed the special patch to solve the battery life problem. And it also frequently crashes when using. Problems ane not limited these two!"
"Tablet is well constructed and has good ergonomic design. Tablet has occasional problems with OS restarts. Press volume up/power for 10 seconds to reset. Took awhile to find the solution. The Miix has reviews mentioning a keyboard/cover, but cannot find it. Would be perfect with it."
Cons: Video card, Keyboard/peripherals, Build Quality, Display performance
"What a pretty brick. Lasted about 5 minutes. Lenovo didn't bother to do basic testing before sending it out the door. Too backlogged to be able to get another one. Wish I had gotten the Toshiba Encore."
Cons: Warranty, Support, Included Software, Software compatibility
"the tablet is really good for all the tasks, the problem is when i restart the tablet, never restarts and is too hard turn on again, and sometimes when i charge it, the tablet shutdown and never turn on again"
"I bought this tablet a few weeks ago due to its excellent value and performance of the new Atom processor. The overall aesthetics of the tablet excellent. However I am disappointed after a few weeks ago since the table constantly freezes or crashes, I suspect driver issues. So till Lenovo addresses the reliability issues so the tablet doesn't constantly crash or freeze, I am giving this a poor rating."
