My 11 year old son wanted a tablet for his birthday, and I couldn't justify spending over $200 for something he might loose or break. We like the Samsung android products, so I decided to take a chance and purchase a refurbished one, and I'm so glad I did. You could never tell by looking at it that it wasn't brand new (other than the box it comes in; says "refurbished"). It's so nice, my husband and I may just by another! The 8" screen is perfect for playing games or reading, especially when you pair it with a rubberized case (makes it even easier to hold). 16GB is plenty of memory for apps and games at that age, but you can buy a microSD card if you need more room for music and books. We installed updates on it without any problems, and my son has been using it everyday since we gave it to him. We are extremely happy with this purchase.
Love my tablet....nothing wrong with it...have had it for a couple days now. It looks and acts brand new. I didnt know whether to get the 7inch nexus 7 or this tab, but im glad I chose this one.
I was highly concerned about buying this product since it was listed as refurbished so I started by reading the reviews already given. After much thought I decided to go ahead with the purchase. I am extremely happy to report that the product was a good decision. it didn't come in the original packaging and you can tell that it had been at the very least opened up and looked at but it was exactly as a new product would be. I've been using it for the better part of two weeks now and I feel good about it. The savings is great also, it was $60-$70 less than competitor stores are selling it for. There where no scratches on the screen or anywhere else on the body. I would recommend this product to anyone else interested in buying a refurbished Samsung tab.
I was a little hesitant to spend the extra money on the 8" over the refurbished 7" but since the refurbished 8" cost the same as the regular priced 7" galaxy I had planned to purchased, my wife convinced me to buy up. The screen difference between the two isn't glaringly obvious to me but after using the 8" for a while I don't feel the eye strain like I sometimes would using my smartphone. The galaxy blows my wifes ipad out of the water in every way performance wise, her only savior is the aluminum and glass body but a good case tends to offset that, and I could buy 2 or 3 of the galaxies for the cost of the ipad. Overall my only complaints with the galaxy is that the camera is very touchy. The button to take a picture is at the very bottom of the screen as on most phones but because the screen is so large, you have to reach a long ways which can cause you to move a little and blur the picture. I'm sure with more time I will get used to it though.
Can you believe it? A refurbished Samsung Galaxy tab 3 for $179, I got mine, and I can't hardly keep my hands off it! It is my first tablet, and from what I have seen and heard, it is an excellent starter tablet, and really even much better than many of the others at this price point and below. I have only explored maybe 5% of it's functions and possibilities, this thing is really awesome and beautiful. All I can say is 'Get you some!!!'
This tab has been flawless so far had it for about a month. Does everything a new tab would but for almost half the price. I decided to go with refurbished because I have owned many refurbished phones including smart phones and have never had any issues. Also something to consider is that if you do buy refurb then if there was a problem with the new "original" product then it has been fixed so more often than not they are more reliable since all the bugs have been worked out by the manufacturer or the seller
I was a little concerned about ordering this tablet, since it is a refurbished one. I have had it almost a month, and it is great. The picture is exceptional, and the tablet is very fast. The battery seems to last a long time. I am very happy with it so far.
These are like brand new
Ok So this product is very nice for the price and it does work somewhat well. The only problems i am having are three. First, It freezes. I will not say often but when i first started using it, it wouldn't freeze at all. Now it is freezing more often. I will say it could be because of the apps i download. Although i don't download much. Second, the power cord has a short. At first i thought it was becuz of an app i downloaded, so i uninstalled it but the charger still would not work and i was on 10% of energy. I did a system sweep and at about 5% the charger kicked in smh. I had to reinstall everything all over again. So now i know it is the charger. It works intermittently. Third, i really didnt know there was a difference when i first purchased this one which is the (t-310), but it does NOT come with a USB slot. I went to purchase a tab case with the built-in Keyboard and learned there are tablets with and without the USB slot. In hindsight i would have preferred one with this additional feature. But Don't get me wrong for this price it was a steal!
BTW Does anyone ever have the "is this a glitch becuz its refurbished or because of something else moments? hum"
This is the 3rd refurbished tablet I have purchased in the last 12 months. I would purchase another to save a few bucks before I would pay full price for a new one. This thing blows the Ipad mini out of the water.
very happy meets my expectations
Purchase this about three weeks maybe turn on 5 times, now screen is frozen, won't turn off or no other functions work by touch screen. Disappointed!!!!!
Bloatware! C' mon Samsung, this is my tablet. At least let me uninstall the many worthless, duplicate and malfunctioning apps. Most people are perfectly capable of managing the apps that they want. Otherwise, this would have been a 5-star review.
The tablet itself is great. It looks new and works perfectly. GPS works great. Don't worry about this being a refurbished unit. I would definitely buy another.
They only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because I had to exchange the first one I purchased. It kept freezing and locking the screen for no reason..so I decided to pay the difference and buy a brand new one only because I did not want to wait 10days for a replacement and I LOVE MY Galaxy TAB! The sound quality and picture are dynamic! You will not be disappointed! I would still buy refurbished because it's a great discount and they are often flawless. For me it was minor and I will continue to be a loyal Samsung consumer :D
My wife and I both have the Samsung galaxy s3 mini cell phones.
So this is the perfect tab for us. But if you don't have a galaxy cell phone
this is still a great tablet to have. the screen is big enough to do everything.
We had a 10 inch tablet (not a Samsung) and it was just too big. This
is the perfect size to read e-mail, or play games.
I received this refurbished Galaxy Tab 3 8. In excellent condition and seems just like a new one.
The performance is great and the picture is superb. The gold and brown color make
The tablet beautiful and very polished. My only problem is that I have some difficulty
Holding it because it is very slippery to hold. I've already ordered a case cover that
Secures it and still exposes the beautiful trim and color. I don't think I've ever seen
Such beautiful color and sharpness on a tablet screen!
I am really enjoying my tab 3 8.0. I have bought from Walmart a refubished tablet (samsung tab 10.1) in the past and was not disappointed so I knew this time I should not be either and I was right. As always samsung products are great and easy to comprehend. I mainly bought this tablet for reading and surfacing the web and the size is just right. Walmart is doing a good job with the selling of refurbished products, I would advise any consumer not to second guess themselves.
I bought a refurbished tablet. So far I have had no problems and every function that I have used has worked. I really like the size. My wife has an IPad and it has always seemed just a little bulky. I would recommend this product to anyone. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it was still a fair amount of money to own one.
I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 in the brown color. Out of the box it looked great. Had 50% charge on it so I set it to charge for a few hours. Turned it on later to set it up and not only had it NOT charged but unit kept rebooting itself. Took it back to the store but unfortunately the didn't have the one I wanted in stock. So I'm giving it another try. Ordered same item again but in white. I NEVER had a problem with a refurbished item, but, I guess there is a first time for everything. We'll see what happens this time. Also ALWAYS get the extended warranty !!!!!
