I have no problem reading and/or writing to external SD card.

For me I could read the SD Card without any issues but I could not write to it without rooting the tablet and then installing the following app from the Playstore
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=nextapp.sdfix

But this is a a KitKat 4.4 issue and not unique to the GPAD 8.3 GPE, all KitKat devices block write access to the SD Cards from what I understand. With the app from the playstore this is easily "fixed" but root is required for the application.

Afterwards you can also use FolderMount (from Playstore) to move large app and data folders to the SD Card as well.

I am very happy with the tablet myself, only regret is that there is not much development but rooted 4.4.4 works great anyway....

DONATE TO ME
I picked up on the clearance G-Pad's (GPE) and in 4.4.4 I have no trouble read/writing to a brand new Samsung Evo 32GB MicroSD without rooting as of yet. Completely stock.

Edit: Oddly, after getting around to unlocking the bootloader and rooting, I actually had to download the KitKat SDFix app and run it to use the sdcard in apps which I did not have to do before unlocking the bootloader and rooting. So... I dunno.
