Reviews and Problems with Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101
Showing 1-10 of 74
The need to make these again.
12 July 2014
Summary: Had one since new and I'm looking for another one since my wife "borrowed" it on a full-time basis. I can't imagine using a tablet without a keyboard. Asus had another tablet-type with a detachable keyboard, but that defeated the purpose of having a table to begin with. This thing, with a keyboard built-in that also serves as a nice table kind of thing on an airplane, makes doing your work really easy. And the built in Polaris...perfect. Other tablets are useless to me.
Looks like really reliable thing, not like no-name Chinese things

Summary: I've bought the pad used for $200 and it costs the money I spent. Gorilla glass is the reason of the purchase. I have no found nothing with such quality and for such price with scratch resistant glass
Summary: The BIG con is customer service refuses to replace the $2 cable unless you send them either the defective cable or the whole tablet thus eliminating your ability to use the product or be able to charge it during the replacement period no matter how long that may take. I refused this option and offered to send them their defective cable after I received a new one so I could keep using their product. They refused.
Pros: Having a built-in keyboard is great. This tablet is everything you will want if you don't want an iPad and with available apps, you can access any computer from anywhere easily.
Cons: The only con was a the defective docking cable included in the box.
Great replacement for a netbook because of keyboard.

Summary: I bought this to replace a netbook. I needed a keyboard and this one works well once I got used to it. I am surprised at how much I use the virtual keyboard. My desktop sits unused. I bought a 16g model and memory card. I don't need the latter. Complaints about its weight are relative. Unless your are comparing, you will never notice it. This tablet and my smart phone have changed my daily life.
Pros: Keyboard, Screen resolution, Android apps, Links smart phone and desktop, Virtual keyboard better than expected
Cons: (All minor cons), Keyboard lacks del key, Android switch means learning a new system, Limited word processing apps, Sound volume low
Summary: i got the eee slider about a month ago for school purposes. and so far it has been amazing. so much easier to setup in class cause now i dont have to pull out two things and connect my keyboard to it its already there and ready to go. the polaris office app they included is amazing i can do all my school work on there and with the keyboard it makes it easy to do it on the go instead of trying to type on a screen when your in a hurry.
Pros: Screen resolution is awesome. Polaris office app is a must for school work. easy interface. super quick at everything i do. not having to carry a seperate keyboard to type is awesome. what isnt good about it.
Cons: the only problem i had at first was with the keyboard being a lil small but now ive gotten used to it and its just as easy to type on it as any other keyboard.
Summary: I bought a bargain refurbished model for £180, and chose the Slider because I liked the idea of a built in physical keyboard that you can slide away when not in use. The screen is good enough and the keyboard works really well. The only issue I've found with the Slider is performance. It regularly appears to freeze when launching an app or scrolling graphics, but then wakes up again a few seconds later.
