Guess it depends on the individual needs. The xtz is a great tablet, don't get me wrong, but I'm trying to sell my xtz to get the note 10.1 2014. Water proof is a useless feature in my case. The s pen however I could use. I love my note 3. I really want the note tablet experience.

Im trying to do that also and coming from the previous note 10.1 n8000 rooting and flashing roms would also be a million times easier.

I never even unlocked or rooted my xtz. I had a feeling I wasn't going to keep it. I just sold it on Amazon. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. I have my old Kindle fire running cm11 nightlies to tide me over for a while. The xtz is a great tablet, I just wasn't getting $550 worth of use from it.

I have the 3.21, it runs great, hardley use my iPad 3 now. Waterproof is very important to me, I live in Canada. Its nice being,able to trek through snow and rain with this tablet not having to worry. All game I throw at it play great. In run a custom ROM and recovery s well as some scripts toleep it running fast. Also tablets get dirty, we all eat with them, nice to be able to rinse the tablet in the sink and the preinstalled screen protector is a nice touch.

So current owners of this tablet, I just purchased the Asus FHD 10 (ME302c) tablet, but may return it for this one. This is $100 more expensive, but it may be worth it.

Any complaints with custom roms or anything not working on this tab? I generally want it for some video watching and reading, browsing.

Thanks.

It's widely reported that the microphone on the xtz is poor, to the extent that it is unuseable with some apps -Skype for example.
I can vouch for the poor mic issue on Skype. You have to use mic+headset combo plugged in to the headphone jack to be able to talk to someone.
Very dissaponting. Some people have exchanged their xtz for a new one only to find the problem is still there
Phone : Nexus 4 (16GB) with PARANOIDANDROID 4.1 ROM & FRANCO Kernel
Tablet : Xperia Tablet Z (311, 16GB WiFi only) PAC (4.4) ROM , TWRP recovery

I guess my thing is I just want it for internet browsing, some streaming, watching 720p/1080p mkvs and reading on. I like to tinker with Android and ROM's though and the XTZ has a thriving dev section where the Asus is non existant.
