No longer an advocate.

J. Rathgeber, Amazon
23 November 2014
  • Summary: I have been buying Asus mainboards since I started building my own computers in the early '90s. In fact, I wouldn't buy anything else. But after experiencing two of these sub-primes for a few years, I don't think I will ever buy another Asus product again, just because of the never ending...

worked great till it started burning!

bnjmnlrd, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I had my Prime for just under a year. December 2013 the site where the charger plugs in melted and started to burn. It won't boot up or charge now. When I did get a customer service rep on the phone they said I could send it in but it would be out of warranty and I'd have to pay for the repairs and...

Defective out of the box

Natasha L., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a Christmas gift but I will most likely not have it for Christmas. Very disappointing. I do not plan to use New or Asus again.
  • Pros: The tablet would not power on. I called Asus tech support and they could figure it out so I will have to send it back.
  • Cons: See above. I would expect the seller to at least make sure it will turn on before shipping it.

Wi-fi makes it virtually unusable

Erik Steffl "zasran", Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: tried two of these (first one broke about an hour of usage, gyroscope died), on both of them wi-fi barely worked. It worked OK if the tablet was within maybe 10 to 15 feet of router. Anything further and the speed went down to crawl.

Don't Buy Asus!

Sharon Hall, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: This purchase was such a big disappointment to me. I had read all the pre-release reviews and was excited to purchase it from Amazon on Jan. 20th 2012. The learning curve to Android was difficult since I didn’t have a smart phone, but I figured it out. I bought it because so small to travel with.

Poor Choice in Tablets

Grady P., Newegg
12 August 2013
  • Summary: A lot of these units got returned because of above problems and now are being resold as "refurbished" even though the problems are still there. Bought my son a Galaxy Tab II and it's a much better tablet which can be bought at about this price.
  • Pros: Display is nice, battery life with keyboard is very good.
  • Cons: Don't buy it if you want to use GPS, it plain doesn't work. Asus has class action suit which they just lost over this. The metal case won't let the GPS function except in the strongest of signals. ASUS solution is to give you a external antenna which can't be used while charging the tablet or whi...

Irritated

Jason H., Newegg
24 June 2013
  • Pros: Updating review of "Wife loves it" Still loves it... even though she's VERY irritated.
  • Cons: It would loss the internet and not log back on even though she was right next to it. All our otehr Wi/Fi devices worked when farther away including her old Asus Tranformer Prime which has a major crack in the screen. She called Asus... long story short they the Support staff tried to sell her a $...

Don't buy

Joshua H., Newegg
19 June 2013
  • Summary: This is a known issue and despite several other reviews stating to NOT buy this product I did anyways. I am a pretty frequent and high paying customer. "Refurbished" products have been tested to ensure compliance with original manufacturer specifications, and MAY include a limited manufacturer...
  • Pros: From what I can tell the screen size is pretty nice, and it is ultra thin.
  • Cons: Battery dead upon arrival, would not receive charge.
