Review Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 Tablet/MID
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?
Excerpt: ASUS Eee Pad Slider is a 10.1-inch Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet with a sliding QWERTY keyboard. In addition, the Slider also comes with a 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera (for video calls), Wi-Fi connectivity; while NVidia's dual-core Tegra 2 CPU provides all the processing power needed to run things smoothly.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: An impressive system from Asus, although perhaps not as easy to use as the Transformer, which has a better keyboard. The Windows netbooks and tablets we have reviewed in the past year have felt underpowered in use, the prime example being Fujitsu's Stylistic Q550. We had no such issues with the Slider, and it didn’t seem to lack performance whatever we did.
Pros: Attached slide-out keyboard offering flexibility as a tablet and netbook; good performance combined with good battery life.
Cons: Glossy screen does distractingly reflect ambient light sources; USB 2.0 rather than USB 3.0; flimsy tablet to base unit connection.
Conclusion: There’s almost nothing wrong with the Asus Eee Pad Slider. Its worst crimes are that it’s heavy and larger than other, keyboardless tablets. If that worries you, get the new Asus Eee Pad Transformer when it comes out. Then you have the advantages of a detachable keyboard, which has an extra battery, and gives you the flexibility of leaving the keyboard at home, if you need a lighter tablet. Aside from its size and dimensions, the Slider is a lovely machine.
Pros: Lovely screen, a decent PC replacement, USB port, good battery life
Cons: Almost the same cost as a laptop, weight and size, lack of Honeycomb apps
Summary: Fantastic keyboard Solid sliding mechanism Gorgeous screen Those crazy kids at ASUS. While every other manufacturer is chasing Apple’s iPad with what the lawyers are calling ‘slavish copies’, they’re off doing something different with Android slates. First there was the innovative dock of the Eee Pad Transformer, now it’s the all-in-one Slider’s turn to give tablet owners what they’re all secretly craving: a keyboard.
Excerpt: ASUS Eee Pad Slider, ASUS'un Transformer'dan sonra ülkemize getirdiği 2. Tablet bilgisayar. Fakat tıpkı ASUS Eee Pad Transformer gibi bir tabletten fazlasını vaat ediyor. Benim gibi tabletlere karşı hala soğuk olan, belki gelenekçi kişiler için klavyeyle de kullanılabilen bu ürünler piyasada fark yaratmayı başarıyor.
