I got this tablet in january 2012 and it worked fine until, somewhere in 2013, I finally installed a massive firmware upgrade that was always asking to be installed. This added a couple new interesting features but the tablet became unstable, rebooting 2 to 4 times a week, freezing a few seconds regularly, Browser restarting.
Anyway, I loved the InfraRed feature allowing control on every household electronics, and this is a "hard to find" feature for my next tablet. Good speakers, clear screen. The plastic power button is broken since more than a year, I still can activate but I have to be careful because there is no other way to turn the tablet ON (compared to Samsung with 2 buttons).
The screen has a few bubbles between the display and the touch screen (like a liquid layer in between) but doesn't affect the view area. Also, I think it is becoming tired because it has image memory, when I go from a clear image to a dark one, the ghost remains for a few seconds. Charger is durable but don't loose or break it because you can't use anything else, unlike Galaxys' and others that use the common and easy to find USB plug.
I am now shopping for a new tablet, but after 3+ years, I'm afraid I'll be comparing features and missing my Sony. Sure I could stay with Sony but prices are quite high and so easy to beat when I look around.
I can say I really loved this tablet... until the irreversible firmware upgrade... but I will soon have to turn the page and transfer my data on something new. Hope the next one is as durable as this Sony.

My Tablet S went dead while I was using it. It was plugged into a power source at the time. It is only 1.5 years old. The battery was rarely used and it was fully charged at the time the device quit. The reset switch does nothing. It will not restart. Any ideas as to what happened? thanks
