Rated 5 out of 5 by CraigJ More of a casual user, but quite impressed
I've bought many other tablets, but all of them for someone else. This is the first I've ever purchased for myself, and I'm glad I did. Very clear, sharp, and sturdy. Especially in the shell I bought along with it. Good battery life, for my usage (again, I don't use it every single day, but it seems to hold a charge well in standby), and the power saving feature (mine's set at 30%) lets the tablet perform quite well.
Only two things make me 'ding' it a bit, and one's the case or shell I bought with it. It is difficult to pull down the task bar from the top of the screen. Not a real issue, though, as I've added the 'pull down button' to the 'Home/Back/Menu" buttons at the bottom of the screen. The other issue I have is that there is no where I can find to stop the hotspot from timing out (when idle) after a few minutes, even when plugged in. It's a real hassle.
Overall though, I like this tablet. Thanks again, LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moose Rider Great tablet at a good price
Got this item primarily for my wife. Was close out at Sam's so price was good. Little difficult for her to set up but her 12 year old grand daughter had no trouble. She likes it a lot. Camera great, as well as other features. Just as good as the other name brand products. No problems with it. Size is excellent. Can't say anything negative out the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael S Super screen, fast performance
I lost my Nexus 7 to Lollipop and had to pickup another tablet, fast. I found this product at Sam's and love it. It performs fast with good wifi reception. The screen resolution is a big improvement over the Nexus 7. Since I am in my 60's I love the improved size of the screen the ease of entering text/data.
I found a cover/case designed to fit the 8.3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ptesone Solid tablet With some but's
The tablet is solid, good hardware and very nice look, the performance is great, but can be better.
Awful LG android layer
Nothing about the android updates
Awful preload apps
The tab is great but could be better if LG use the Google stock android or a version without preload unuseful apps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr Mike - Loving Idaho A nice tablet. A great value.
I wanted something bigger than my smartphone in order to check my e-mail and browse the Internet. This tablet was perfect. The size is just right. The display is awesome. Nice power and performance. Easy to use. A great value compared to comparable tablets on the market. Packed with extras that more expensive tablets have. Why pay more for another tablet when you have it in the LG G pad already? I love my LG G pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoeQ in Kentucky LG G Pad 8.3 is a knock on knock out
The LG G Pad 8.3 is my third tablet and by far the best! The size and weight are great ... not too small and not too big ... easy to hold for extended periods. The software and touch response is great and most of all the Wi-Fi connectivity is superb. Use my G Pad at the far end of an 80-foot house with no issues or dropped connections. Unfortunately these tablets are tough to find now but the search is well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy just the right size with the right features
I purchased the LG G Pad8.3 from Sam's Club about a month ago and have been very happy with the tablet. I was looking for a tablet that would be good for travel and quick searches on the web. This tablet fills the gap between your cell phone and laptop. Would highly recommend the LG G Pad 8.3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris A great tablet at a decent price
Let me start by saying the 8.3 inch tablet is the perfect size for movies and gaming. It isn't too heavy fits great in the hands. The battery lasts very long even at full brightness and the screen quality is outstanding. I did need to send it in for repair more than once for the same issue which was a bright blue line going down the side of the screen which seemed like a common problem with early models. Since the problem was repaired I have had no issues and love the tablet.
