You will only get 5000 in quadrant in a tegra device with the well known cheat (which is sometimes built into ROMs). The REAL score will be 3000 at most. Besides quadrant tells you little about how fast a device is.

I agree that it CAN be smoother than stock, but its never what i call smooth. Ive tried CM9, its NOT buttery smooth.

Maby or maby not, that is your choice. I find CM9 for my tab smooth and fast it runs better than honeycomb. And with ADW, wowww!!!!

I played with a few of these at my jb-hifi, so dam slow compared to everything else. Walked across the road into good guys, and my god it was a world of difference. I'm not sure what is going on with them but its like some are duds, or their display ones are miss treated hard.

Different firmwares i would guess. All the store units i tried had no net connection so couldnt have anything installed and i factory reset one, but it was still dead slow.

Im used to the jitter and the fact that it 'scro-ooo-olls' rather than 'scrolls' now, but its still a bit disappointing.

I love my 8.9. I had an Advent Vega, then an iPad, then went for this tab, and to be honest I love it, I mean I find it way better than iPad, and other Android tabs I've used, but then I don't spend a lot of time meddling with home screens and stuff. I love some of the Samsung stuff, like the Social Hub, I find it fantastic, and I always use the overlay Calculator. I also was never a fan of the cheesy TRON look Honeycomb goes for with its dark blue gradients so I appreciate Samsung's white&grey re-skin. Most of all though the form factor, shape, size, weight etc. is ideal. I can see where you're coming from but I am very happy with this thing, I saw an iPad 3 today and had no interest in it thanks to this thing!

My tab lags some (running stock honeycomb with adw ex launcher) but it doesn't really bug me...all the great things this tablet does way outweighs the lags.

I've noticed a huge speed increase recently on my tab, coukdn't work out why but I had removed a bunch of Samsung Widgets, so try taking widgets off your home screen to see if it improves...

I downloaded overcome 2.3.1 and applied launcher patch and i can honestly say, that this thing flies now...I use quite a lot of widgets, but none of them are samsung widgets (launcher after patch is more or less stock honeycomb). Only thing, that slowed the tab down was youtube widget. I really recomend this rom and patch!
