Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromArtist professionalI've had the SP3 since september 2014, and it's replaced my workstation. I was skeptical it could work well with 3D, but I'm using it regularly for 3D modeling and sculpting, rendering and digital painting. For the price, there isn't anything better for my needs than this. If I had a thousand dollars more in a my budget, I would consider the new wacom companion, but even then it's a very close call.The only minor flaw is that the device tends to heat up a bit for no apparent reasons sometimes.Overall, best purchase of my life.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromPOWERLESS USB DRIVEpurchased 3 months ago pro 3 1.7 256 gb . I needed an optical drive got one plugged it in and it said not enough power to run. I finally found out from other people in the same mess that I should try a usb y -lead that i purchased from ebay I did and it finally worked. I played my first dvd and it did not recognise dvd format,I again found out from other people that I needed again to purchase Microsoft windows media centre as all windows 8. 8.1and 8.1pro does not have this, I did and now it all works fine but at an extra cost on top of £1500= already paid .Apart from this I am pleased with it JUST WISH THAT MICROSOFT WOULD POINT THIS OUT TO ALL THEIR CUSTOMERS AND RETAILERS SO WE DO NOT HAVE THIS HASSLE IN THE FUTURE

Rated 4 out of5 by fromgreat design but the touchpad is not so goodI've had my surface pro 3 for almost 8 months now. The overall design of the tablet is great. However, I'm not a fan of the touchpad on the type keyboard. It is way too small and does not register movement that accurately sometimes. If you are planning on using the surface pro 3 as mainly a laptop I think it is better to just get a laptop instead since typing with the type keyboard attached on your lap is pretty much impossible. As a hybrid device I think it works pretty good.I bought a Dell XPS13 (2015 edition) a few weeks ago and it is way better as a laptop than the surface pro 3.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromgood but not bestOver all good device. 12" is perfect size. Good screen. but has annoying popping sound in the headphones when no music is playing. also pen support in any other application but One Note is a merely rudimentary eye of cave fish.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromLove my Surface Pro 3!I purchased this over a week ago and I just can't put it down! I love it! For me, this is totally a functioning laptop. Much better than my iPad. My only complaint is with the battery life. I am not getting 8 to 9 hours.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromUniversity Student vs 3 different Surfaces Pro 3'sIn November I traded my broken laptop and iPad in for a Surface Pro 3. The decision was made after much though. But it boiled down to my iPad doing 98% of school work (Biology and Nursing) except for project uploading and submitting. Buying a laptop for the one thing my iPad couldn't do seemed stupid. But I could not give up my iPad because I could make digital notes and draw (Biology and Nursing = lots of drawings). Simple word document notes, simply don't work.The Surface Pro 3 seemed like a good solution to the problem. It could submit my projects (like a laptop), and create notes that had drawings (like my iPad) using OneNote.Four months have passed since my original Surface Pro 3 was purchased. I am currently using my 3rd brand new replacement Surface Pro 3. Below are my overall thoughts on Surface Pro 3's and the problems I encountered.It's not a tablet replacementFrom my experiences with my old iPad and my roommates Galaxy Nexus Tablets I've decided that tablets are designed for quick data entry and quick information consumption. One or two clicks should get you to your desired task. This is not the case with laptops / computers that will have many steps before you get to a more complex program to either enter your data or see information. If you compare a news website to one on your tablet or smartphone. You'll see that information is much easier to find on the tablet/smartphone do to the highly simplistic organization system. This simplicity is not found anywhere on the Surface Pro 3. This simplicity isn't found in the apps. Or in the multistep process of going to website to obtain the desired information. I found myself using my smartphone a lot to make up for this gap.Good/Bad of MoviesThe screen is big and beautiful after you wipe away the fingerprints of course. The only downside is the built in speakers aren’t very good. But if you have headphones or the like the problem is eliminatedThe Pen / DrawingThis was the main reason for the first two returns. With the first Surface. The pen would work "occasionally", there wasn't a pattern to it. Sometimes it would work like a mouse, other times like a "finger flick", and other times no response. All three responses would be exhibited for the same task. Nothing seemed to work to fix it either. 3 Full factory restarts, updates twice daily, multiple pen calibrations, new batteries, and many hours with the Answer desk doing remote controls of the computer.The second Surface had pen troubles as well. This time it would take 5/6 clicks of the pen before the Surface recognized it. When it did recognize it, it would never draw or click where I wanted it to. After many calibrations, new batteries, testing my friends pen on my surface (with identical results = my pen was not the problem). I discovered that my screen was off center. I showed this to Microsoft and got my 3rd Surface.The third Surface works just as advertised with slight lag every now and then. Other than that it works really well and I'm glad to finally see this feature actually work.When it works it’s a really nice feature. If it doesn't work, you end up focusing more on the Surface than you do on your task.Battery LifeOf the 3 Surfaces only the first one could handle a few day of school. Often lasting a full day and a half. The other two die midway through my last class or shortly after.ScratchingThis is a problem I've seen with all three Surfaces. Despite me being very careful and having a padded carrying sleeve. The backs of all the Surfaces have become scratched quite easily.SpeakersNot good quality. All three had a scratchy, hazy, not nice sound to them.The Fun FactorI'm sad to say that since it's not a good tablet replacement, that I rarely use it for "fun" things. Its really good at "work" tasks but I don't use my Surface to wind down or zone out very often. I find I have to force myself to make to use the Surface in this way. Meaning for me at least the Surface is not naturally a "fun" device.FreezingThis seemed to be a constant in my first two Surfaces. The first one took the Answer desks a full 45min to fix, ontop of a 30min charge. This was after I it charged for a day, and tried every button combination to cause something to happen (my roommates are comp science, I learned how to trouble shoot a computer). The second froze often enough but I was always able to bring it out of it. However the 20 slides that I'd miss in my Nursing classes was always a sore spot. The current Surface has only frozen a few time, but not at the same frequency as the first two. Every time I've been able to bring it out of the freeze.Overall thoughtsThe lack of consistency in a flagship product is disappointing, especially considering the cost of ownership. The quality isn't present, as shown with three Surfaces having issues. Considering this is a 3rd generation product I'm amazed a lot of these problems are still present. The amount of effort it has taken to get a machine to work as really made me wonder if it was worth it. The pen is a nice feature when it works but I'd prefer a solid product that I can trust to work than have a the feature
