Samsung Galaxy Tab or iPad
#1
I have a choice of buying my wife the new Samsung Galaxy Tab and using her old iPad (about 3-4 years old) for CQC or getting the Samsung for myself for CQC.

My wife said she can wait another year or two for a new tablet, so I have the opportunity to use whatever would work for me. The third option is to use my wife's Surface RT.


Would the 3-4 year old iPad work for me, or maybe the Surface RT, or do I need the Samsung Galaxy Pad?

What would you do?

I use an iPad 3 for CQC. The only thing I hunger for would be a lighter weight unit. Using it as a remote for my home theater works and works well, but a lighter one would be much more enjoyable to handle.

Perhaps the best advice will come from someone on here with experience with both.

Thanks, I am hoping to decide today as they have it on Sale at Costco if I choose to buy the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 5. My third option is to use my wife's Surface RT.

I picked up the Samsung Galaxy 5 at Costco... I have 30 days to decide if it is what I want now. As far as a windows tablet I haven't seen any I would want for under $400.

I have the original iPad, which is now completely useless as far as Apple goes, mounted on the wall, running CQC. It looks great and does a perfect job, I have had no issues whatsoever.

So far the Samsung is working great... It has an excellent picture. I am still struggling trying to get my own templates configured to work though. :oops:

I have never had much luck with tariva on any android device. I am following this with interest to see how you end up using it.

What method are you using to connect to the CQC Server, RDP or tariva?
