MS Office365 Incompatible with ASUS Android Tablets
4 weeks ago
Summary: I used to think this was the best on the market for speed, resolution, versatility, etc. At the time it first came out, it beat the iPad 3 to market and had the better resolution. However, time does wear on this status. Because Microsoft decided to not make compatible their latest Office365 on this Android (4.0) or CPU processor (NIVIDIA Tegra) you cannot install the latest Office365 on this tablet. So, if this is a need, then don't get it.
Summary: Decent product, poor customer service and reliability. Unit is about 1 1/2 years old, when booting it hangs on the login screen. Hard reboot brings up "dead android" error, indicative of a corrupted OS. Sent automated ASUS problem contact via their website, was never contacted about the problem. Finally talked to someone at Asus that was unable to access my registration info. After an hour on the phone we got to what should have taken 30 seconds...
Summary: Pro: Excellent and bright screen! Plays HD video wonderfully! GPS is accurate. Con: Google Chrome and Maps are very slow. However, this is normal behavior for a tablet in this price range. Tablet must also be fully reset every few months in order to clear a memory cache and garbage collection issue that ASUS has no resolution for.
Summary: My TF300 tablet got its screen cracked with the car door and I liked it, so I planned on buying a similar or the same one, and I opted for the TF700 because of the better resolution, gorilla glass screen and speed. I was a little bit dissapointed as it's slower than the TF300, maybe because of the graphics, but I couldn't really differenciate the graphics' improvement. I'd like my old TF300 having gorilla glass better.
Good tablet for end users; Bad tablet for developers!
8 January 2014
Summary: Good for end user, but not for developwer: The tablet is good, but the firmware is bad, unless you can find a tf700 with firmware prior to 184.108.40.206, in which case you found the best tablet in the world, because you can use nvflash to make recovery blobs, protecting you from brick situations--great for developers or anyone who wants to run their own distro of linux on it.
Summary: After all I haed read I thought this would be like using a small computer, it's not. Very disappointed it does not support flash player and alot of the games I want to play on it I can not. Wish I had waited.
Excerpt: The battery is not better than ipad. But you can put a sd card memory and we can work on our files easily. With keyboard it is good. The signal for wifi signal reception is not better than ipad.
Pros: Easy To Customize, Operating System, Web Browsing
Summary: Having lived with this tablet for just over one year, I have a few comments: 1. Overall, it performs adequately. There is significant delay downloading emails and loading web pages, but app speeds seem fine 2. Asus seem to have forgotten about this tablet after a year. The last Android update was to version 4.2.1 and, despite asking Asus and looking around various web sites, there seems little sign of any later version being made available.
Excerpt: bought my Asus TF 101 us model 2 years ago after not being satisfied with Samsung galaxy tab 2. I have to say apart from its funny shape this table has impress me a lot in terms of its overall performance and speed. I have very good performance when playing games and the clarity when watching movies is excellent and you can even hook it up to a bigger external display for a full HD movie playback via the HDMI port.
Pros: I really like this tablet because of its performance .
Cons: the only disadvantage is that you cannot recharge directly from a PC via the usb port .
