    Please help me choose a Tablet for my Alaska Trip

    I'd like to get a new tablet that I can use to store photos, and maybe a little editing.

    I'd like the following items installed in the tablet.


    Screen size isn't a priority, but 10" would be ideal
    32GB memory
    USB port so I can down load photos from an CF/SD reader..... and serve as an intermediary to load thumb drives as storage
    SD port
    Good reliability

    There are so many out there. I'm hoping some of you folks have experienced the good and/bad points of any particular brands.

    Thanks.

    Ted

    No.

    Of course I want value, but if I get what I pay for, I'll be happy.

    In that case I'd recommend the Galaxy Tab S2. It's pricey but it has an excellent display which will make viewing your photos more enjoyable, expandable memory, a microUSB port which you can plug an adapter into so you can plug in flash drives and card readers that connect by USB, respectable performance and good battery life.

    xlDeMoNiClx,
    Would you recommend the 32GB or the 64GB tablet. When I order it -is there anything else I should consider buying to go with the tablet?

    Bought my wife a Galaxy Tab S2 last month - she loves it. (Got the 32GB version) - you can add more memory with the micro SD and even more plugging in an external USB with micro USB adaptor (picked up a both and one with micro one one side, regular on the other).

    And last week bought my daughter a Galaxy Tab A - about $100 less than the S2 and a little bigger display. Both ladies are very pleased with their new tablets.

    Sorry if I sounds like I'm hijacking the post -didn't mean to. Just realized that my messages read like I'm the one who made the original post- Sorry. I have been researching tablets on and off now for a month and this post helped me decide; thanks Ted!! Paul

    Well, I'd definitely recommend getting a screen protector and a case as well. As for storage, you can get either one as the Tab S2 allows you to slot in a microSD card. Hope you enjoy it.
