  • Conclusion: Here’s the deal. If you yearn to minimize what you carry along on a daily basis, the Asus Eee Pad Slider is the perfect solution as it already incorporates a physical keyboard – even if it’s on the cramped side. Not to mention, it’s also the only Android tablet on the market to sport this form factor.
  • Pros: Incorporates a keyboard, Good battery life
  • Cons: Extremely bulky and heavy, Subpar camera, Inconvenient positioning of its speakers

Asus EEE Pad Slider SL101

CNET
29 January 2012
  • Summary: Though it prevents a "pure" tablet experience, the Asus Eee Pad Slider's built-in keyboard is a welcome feature for those who break into cold sweats whenever typing on a tablet is mentioned.
  • Pros: The Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101's keyboard mechanism is well-implemented and useful to those frustrated with typing on a tablet screen. Also, the inclusion of Mini-HDMI, a microSD card slot, USB 2.0, and the latest version of Honeycomb makes this tablet worth its price.
  • Cons: The Slider is bulky and heavy for a tablet and can't be detached from the keyboard plate. Also, the typing environment feels cramped and the curved design on the keyboard plate blocks the spacebar. No LED flash on the camera means no nighttime picture taking.

  • Summary: This is one unique tablet - stands out in a crowd like no other. The Slider may just be the perfect solution for someone who wants to replace the laptop/netbook with a tablet. The integrated keypad helps achieve that. Depends on how comfortable you find it though. But is this the first in a new genre of tablets, aimed at the business user.
  • Pros: Keyboard adds a whole lot in terms of usability, Bright display
  • Cons: Not very well built, Keyboard not very comfortable

Asus Eee Pad Slider review

Liliputing
28 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Over the last two years computer makers have flooded the market with tablets. The best of these devices tend to be thinner and lighter than laptops, offer better battery life, and always-on features including the ability to receive incoming email or instant messages even when the display is off.

Review Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 Tablet/MID

Notebookcheck
22 December 2011
  • Summary: Swiss pocketknife. Just like the pocketknife can conjure up a nail file, saw and Allen key, the Slider can transform itself into a kind of all-in-one tablet with a real keyboard. More work efficiency under Android?
  • Pros: Keyboard always at hand, Standby can be disabled, Screenshot key, Wide viewing angles (IPS), Good contrast, Video out, Full-size USB port, Long battery life, Short battery charge time (2-3h), Stable hinge, non-slip bottom, Timeout can finally be disabled, the Slider is permanently on. The folding mechanism seems well-designed and is stable.
  • Cons: High weight, Unusual keyboard, Why is there no 3G version of the Slider?

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

SlashGear
9 December 2011
  • Conclusion: On paper, the ASUS Eee Pad Slider makes sense. All the instant-on flexibility of a tablet, with the convenience of a keyboard. Problem is, the biggest competition comes from under ASUS' own roof, in the shape of the Eee Pad Transformer. That has a better keyboard, the choice over whether or not to use it, and considerably more battery life.

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

AnandTech
4 October 2011
  • Conclusion: For the users who are happy living in the consumption-only world of today's tablets, the Eee Pad Slider is not for you. It's bulkier than the Galaxy Tab and has significantly worse battery life than the iPad 2. If what you're looking for is another tablet, the Eee Pad Transformer is likely a better buy. The Eee Pad Slider on the other hand talks to those users who want a tablet but also want to be able to type out a long email when they have to.

[Review] ASUS Eee Pad Slider: Heap Another Honeycomb Tablet Onto The Pile, Albeit One With A Trick Keyboard

Android Police
1 October 2011
  • Summary: Is the ASUS Eee Pad Slider the best tablet on the market? Probably not - "best" is an arbitrary term, and besides, the iPad 2's app catalogue is far more expansive (come at me, fanboys). However, it may well be my favorite Honeycomb tablet (to be fair, I haven't used all of them), and I think it's an incredibly strong candidate for anyone looking for a slate capable of work and play alike - though that's an undeniably niche market.

The Slider's physical keyboard allows it to stand out in a sea of Android tablets, but can you overlook the weight and thickness compromises be overlooked?

  • Summary: When it came to writing the conclusion of the Eee Pad Transformer review, I could confidently say that those looking for a tablet with a keyboard didn’t have to look any further. But that’s simply not the case for the Slider. While it may have a more clever and innovative form factor, the fact that the keyboard is always present causes it to be the chunkiest tablet on the market.
  • Pros: Bright, high-quality IPS display, Sliding mechanism is rigid, Innovative form factor with keyboard, Keyboard is well laid out
  • Cons: Thick and heavy, Keyboard is overly plasticy, Very thick screen bezel, Angle of the screen can’t be adjusted beyond 45 degrees in keyboard mode
