Just got mine in from amazon a few days ago. Great device and surprised at the performance.
Just a few things to note. They fixed the polarity of the speakers so it’s no longer bass less/direction less and crappy sounding. This was never confirmed but many people with early ones have said the "Out of phase test brings back the bass/imaging) and judging by people saying they were unusable… it all adds up to make sense.
I use my HD800s/Timeless 7hz/Studio Monitors weekly and I’d give the sound for the form factor a 7/10. The galaxy tab would be 9/10 for comparison which has a bit better sound/imaging and low end.
I played a video on the laptop and recorded it with a high end mic.
Also you need to manually update your gpu drivers. Theirs are over a year old on the version included with the tablet.
Pen lines arn’t amazing.
For some reason doesn’t support hdr on windows just videos… even tho it has wide color gamut support, and it’s an oled with 600 peak nits. HDR video looks great tho once you set max luminance to 600 in the windows registry. The recommended settings on the slider are set way to low and just basically maxes out most of the scene.
I also color calibrated mine (Software worked fine on emulation.) it removed the overly cool white point. But other than that it was already fairly accurate stock.
The 53/100 on my display was 134 nits the slider isn’t linear. I also wanted it a bit brighter than normal since the screen is so reflective.
Games also run surprisingly well. I was able to play MGS5 above 30 on some high settings 720p and some indie games I tried no problems.
This is the first device I can really say comes close to being perfect for my workflow of pixel art/media/the odd office stuff/indie games/classic wow.
1: It’s a much better tablet than the surface line (specially newer ones.) outside of pen tracking/palm rejection.
2: Arm support seems good? I haven’t found anything that didn’t run. Most apps have arm builds or ports people compiled which is great.
3: More feature rich vs galaxy tab which imo is the best tablet atm. The only pros that has over this is weight/pen.
4: Great deal vs surface - Though we may need another generation or two for this to be close to mac performance imo.
No windows hdr support.
Keyboard is flat, swings easy when lifting.
(Wish the case came in a more passive color)
Windows is super bloated and with the lower spec you really benefit from stripping out all that crap. Which takes a bit of time.
If you wanna test your device use this.
