Summary: Granted, this part of my review probably belongs under the dock instead of under the tablet. Still, I feel it is important to tell prospective buyers of these problems here before they commit money to buying a tablet that they may also want to use a dock with.
Pros: Great screen size and resolution, color depth is excellent. Good response/speed in standard mode, good battery life in power-saving mode. Decent improvement in response/speed in "turbo" mode, but not overwhelmingly so. Videos play well. Average number of OEM-included apps.
Cons: After a year of ownership, I've had the unit back in for servicing three times for the same problem and is now facing a fourth repair... There are two latch points on this unit where the (optional) dock connects to the tablet. Inside the latch space, there is a small metal tab that the dock's lat...
Summary: I bought THREE of these in 2012 along with keyboards, two for my two adult daughters and one for me. I never really got to use mine as it finally stopped working. First the connection with the keyboard started getting flaky then the tablet wouldn't turn on at all.
Pros: Great screen resolution and competitively priced at the time.
Cons: alleged quirkyness with freezing, and shut downs
Pros: The screen is bright, beautiful and crisp. 1920x1200 packed into a 10" diagonal lets you read like it were a book, and max brightness is able to make black-on-white legible in direct sunlight. The camera works quite well, provided you don't expect DSLR results. With the docking keyboard, the SD a...
Cons: I'd rather wish that the HDMI output were a little smarter. This screen is 1200px tall, all TVs and most other panels are 1080... a little control over the letterboxing, please? The only con serious enough to really complain about though is the wifi. The data rates, intelligence of the controller...
Cons: Became slow after installing applications. I really do not know if there is incompatibility with some of them, but I hate how slow it became. After eliminating many apps it became acceptable again.
Summary: I wanted to use this tablet for awhile before writting a review. For me the biggest negative aspect of this tablet is the Android operating system. While the Android system does do some things pretty well it has a long way to go before it catches up with the competition in my opinion.
coulda should woulda (Mobile Dock for ASUS Transformer Pad)
Gregory O., Newegg
25 February 2013
Summary: a cool cool cool idea but it just underwhelmed me in terms of battery life. pros really save this product but the performance to price ratio just doesn't quite cut it. maybe if it came bundled with the ASUS Transformer Pad it would have the awesome aspects hold up well.
Pros: ah the idea behind this product is lofty. i mean how can you set yourself a standard in industry when you product you push ends up like this? it isn't a bad dock. by no means. it just doesn't quite go from good to great. it stays behind; it could have catapulted the ASUS Transformer Pad lines int...
Cons: this COULDA been the bombest keyboard dock you hard earned clams you just shelled for. almost but man oh man... COULDA: the keyboard aspect is kinda disappointing. it isn't bad but considering i paid around 120 bones for this bad boy it isn't without gripes. the keys themselves depress just fine ...
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: I wanted to really love this tablet, because I don't like Apple product. However, it makes no sense that this same tablet, made by Asus, is worse than the Nexus 7, which is also made by Asus.
Pros: -Good price compared to iPad. -The screen's quality is excellent.
Cons: Cons -The speed at which the web page loads is noticeably slower than the iPad 4 (my child owns an iPad 4). -After every update, there are new problems. For example, the tablet has a slower response to touch input when trying to open an app or its own settings menu. -My other child has a Nexus 7,...
