Summary: ASUS usually makes great products but this one falls down. Its primary weakness is poor Wireless. Pros: Great screen resolution and battery life. Long life battery and solid build quality. It features a micro SD slot and the ability to connect to a dock. It is possible to run custom ROMS although I still use the stock OTA JB one from ASUS. I would avoid this and buy the TF700 or TF700t. The TF101 is also a decent buy. Slower processor but fine.
Excerpt: this Tablet is a great device and very fast i like how i have a tegra 3 proccessor chip in it the keyboard is a bit annoying like when i am typing the cursor would move the interface is kinda distortef
Summary: This was my first tablet, I really should have bought the Sony tablet S. I was hoping to turn it into a laptop sorta thing, but ended up turning into a game machine (the games I play don't play well on it) and netflix (nothing but B movies). Maybe I am doing this all wrong, some other people could enjoy it.
Pros: A great screen; bright and very clear with great color. Very fast and responsive touch screen. Camera works well and takes great shots. This unit is light and the bright screen makes a great reader when you don't want to turn on a light.
Cons: Despite all the wonderful things the firmware has been problematic. i am having lock and reboot issues that are the result of an update received on 2-19-2012. This is the reason for my 3 star rating. Wi-fi connection is also weaker than expected.
Cons: At $499 who knows how long (if ever) it will take for ICS and the new processor to have a large enough base of units sold to attract apps written to take advantage of the hardware. At $399 a very good buy worth taking a chance on. $399 it isn't..
Summary: If you like a challenge, this is the device for you! I've had it a year now, and finally surrendered to needing a proper laptop. It's been fun trying to get it to do the things that regular laptops can do, and have downloaded and trialled a plethora of apps, but I can't waste any more of my time fighting to use it as a device suitable for work.
