Asus EeePad Transformer
26 August 2011
Summary: This is an excellent device which works extremely well and is perfect for taking to meetings and on vacation. With the addition of the keyboard it works just like a netbook but has the added advantage of also working as a tablet. There are plenty of apps that you can download for free. I am extremely pleased with my purchase and would certainly recommend this item for anyone wanting portability, adaptability and reliability.
Summary: The Asus Transformer is proving to be everything I was looking for. Fast browsing, easy to use, and overall fast. Battery life is excellent, but when you add the docking station, it is outstanding. The only issues are minor, and surround the fact it is new technology. The apps will be developed. It's portability is one of the best features, small enough to carry everywhere, almost instant boot up, when it's only screen lockout it is instant.
Summary: I have an iPad (Paid for by work) but when i got the eee pad there was a clear differnce in quality and performance. The apple product is pretty naff and more suited to a novice. The eee pad is much faster, especially after the last update. Does way more and doesnt require you to pay money to iTunes just to turn the device on. When given the choice my 2 year old son prefers watching peppa pig on the eee pad, and cand hold it without pausing while watching.
Pros: Its not an ipad, battery life is bonkers way better than the iPad
Cons: slightly heavy, keyboard isnt as good as HTC keyboards
Summary: Well what can i say abt Asus...simply brilliant.I have had it for nearly 2 weeks now and i must admit that i have so far really enjoyed the Honeycomb experience. Had an update to Honeycomb 3.2 recently ( comes packed with 3.1 ). Its smooth and the overall experience is quiet refreshing. I must admit that Honeycomb is still a bit buggy ( had a few force closes and that is why i have given the review 4 stars ) but that i m sure can be rectified with future updates.
Summary: This is an excellent tablet. It appealed to me over other tablets because of the possibility to use it as a netbook with the keyboard dock and I have to say that this does work well with the added bonus of the extended battery life. The picture quality is excellent with wide viewing angles and the touchscreen feels very solid.
Summary: Until now I thought the ASUS transformer was fine, well made and functioning but then I got to push the back cover of the TAB a bit hard and now it seems the screen will never function again, its just all funny colors. I tried the HDMI output its still functioning fine, but it seems the screen will never functioning again, conclusion, the TAB, is stored in a too soft cabinet so you easily destroy the screen. Do not buy it before this is fixed.
Summary: Had my TF101 about 2 weeks now, and I'm still pretty pleased with it. It's responsive and fast, and ASUS are keeping up to date with the latest Android releases - there's a slight delay due to the modifications they have to make to the firmware, but that's understandable. The software is smooth - not as 'fluid' as iOS, for example, but far more robust and customizable.
Summary: In general, I'm pleased with this Android tablet. The response of the touchscreen is very good and accurate. I would say that it is almost (very close to) the response you get from an IPad 2. The addition of the keyboard is definately worthwhile. Not only does it make the inputting of data easier, it is easier to view and use the screen while the keyboard is on your lap. Without the keyboard, I found the weight of the screen caused my hands to ache after some time.
Summary: I bought mine (from PC World at £429 including keyboard/dock) on 3rd August and I'm absolutely delighted. This is my first Android device so I didn't know what to expect but the Android OS automatically updated to 3.2 within a few minutes use. I assume that that updtae contained a fix for the typing lag mentioned in other reviews at amazon because it's simply not an issue for me.
Summary: I did a lot of research before I bought this and I haven't been disappointed. I don't have a smart phone or a laptop and wanted to have something that will browse the internet, send emails and view photos. This does it all very well especially with the keyboard which makes typing a whole lot easier. If you're app mad then maybe Apple is better, however there are still plenty of Android apps available. If you want something to rival the IPad 2 then this is it!
