the ideal tablet for MobileSheetsPro
I have finally succeeded with linking my PA600 to a Samsung 12.2" tablet.

I hit a snag with the song display and songbook selection due to the cable. I tried to use the one Samsung provided but it did not talk to the PA600. Finally I located a shop in Collingwood, Ontario,
that were very helpful and obtained a TechCraft Micro USB "On-The-Go" Adapter that fits the tablet, and presto!, it synchs perfectly. Providing that you follow the instructions and set-up the midi commands, selecting either a keyboard song or a tablet song has the tablet and keyboard behaving. I'm now scanning in the rest of my music to pdf files and loading them into Mobilesheets.  Terrific program Mike! Many thanks.
I did have a terrible experience using my Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 at a chamber music workshop performance this summer. This was just an informal performance for the workshop, but still.  Our group had not had a chance to rehearse on the stage. When we began playing, I quickly found out that the overhead stage lights were creating such a glare on the Samsung screen that I could not see a lot of the notes. I played TERRIBLY because of this. I guess I'll try out some non-reflective screen covers, but those things worry me that they might cut back on brightness and make the stylus not work well.
I have a screen protector on mine, doesn’t seem to bother he stylus and I have the brightness down a bit so don't notice a difference anyway. I also use the night mode [Settings>display settings] , which I prefer over the dark theme [settings>library settings]. I have no idea if that would help on the glare problem.

I had a Galaxy Note 10.1, and was ok, but I think the screen was very small for me; I changed after a lenovo yoga 3 Pro with AmiDuos to emmulate an Android OS and my experience was awful. I just bought the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, and in my own experience, using MobileSheets Pro and Note Pro 12.2 has been my best experience ever. I have not found a tablet stand yet, but I'm happy with my new purchase !!

PS: Could you recommend a stand fot this model? Thanks

I'm looking for a big tablet that has a screen that's bright enough to work in direct sunlight.
Do you play outside?  How is the screen on the Note 12?
I have a "König & Meyer 19740-000-55" for my Note 12.2 and it works fine. Not really cheap with €49, though.

I have not had any problem with a regular Manhasset stand, but be sure the desk tilt is tight enough. And, of course, don't leave the tablet on it during breaks or when people are passing by trying to get to their seats (this is if you are in an orchestra).
I have a quality (though brandless) stand and a brandless tablet adapter that nicely fits the stand when I remove the document holder.
I needed to replace one screw (see image #4) since the original screw was just too thick to fit the slits in the head of the stand.
During rehearsals I usually use the stand with the document holder fitted, so it is easy to put on a piece of paper, a pen, etc.

Asus Zenpad (Z300M) 10.1", Android 7.0 (backup).
Samsung A3 (A320FL), Android 8.0 (emergency).
For me, one of the advantages of using a standard music stand is that it allows me to place my instrument mixer (I have three instruments) close to hand.

Although the picture shows a couple of plastic strips retaining the tablet, I have since modified this to a Velcro strip on the back of the tablet, with another on the stand - this allows easy change between my two tablets (which are different sizes).
