Very bad product from ASUS. Very poor technical service. Don't buy it.

Summary: Very bad product from ASUS, think twices if you want buy it. The wireless signal is very poor and it come down. More poor than signal of TF101. The front camera turns green and you will have send it to technical service. Maybe back camera become green too. The technical service from ASUS is very poor. Is just a table with a pretty design. I can't recommend it. I recommend that you verify all reviews with less 4 stars first and think in another tablet.

Pros: Cute purple color, easy to hold in your hands, nice android features once you can get the WiFi to work. You could probably tell your friends you got a iPAD and show it to them at a distance and amaze them that you really did get the real thing(iPAD).
Cons: The glue that holds this together is WiFi access and after 10 feet away from my WiFi, it loses signal and drops out, making it useless for downloads, net access and so on, just terrible. HBO GO is not accessible, GPS is a bust.
Pros: Great processor speed and decent battery life, nice packaging, great weight
Cons: poor gps and wifi out of the box and each new firmware made it worse. either the new units are perfect or they are not. I think ASUS had Quality Control issues with the connectors. Simple design should not let some units work great and others not while fi
Pros: Like many have said here, it's a responsive and beautiful tablet. Fast updates from Asus including Android 4 (ice cream sandwich).
Cons: Wifi is a major issue. Have no illusions and ignore the people that deny it. Do a web search and you'll see. The practical range is less than 20 ft. from router. This design flaw has been acknowledged by Asus, yet they shipped them out anyway.
Great tablet until something goes wrong with it then beware !

Summary: Be warned. This is a really nice product until something goes wrong with it - then you find out the parts are obsolete. I brought mine 15 months ago and it has worked great until I accidentally dropped it and broke the glass (the tablet still worked ok). Then I found the truth about ALL Asus products - you can't necesarily get replacement glass for them!
Summary: The TF201 looked like an ideal alternative to the ubiquitous ipad and for a while all was good, but having owned this almost a year, I think I can potential buyers a good idea of what this tablet is about. Pros: - Battery life is staggering, I often get two full days out of it with push mail, occasional youtube and quite a lot of surfing - The spun aluminium looks nice - Updates to the latest android seem to come out relatively soon after the main release (note: unless...
