AC Adapter Broke the First Day
Douglas S., Newegg
4 September 2011
Pros: Good screen, software, etc.
Cons: The plastic that holds the pins for the AC Adapter broke after the first day of use appently to get a repacement I have to 1. Return the WHOLE box with eveything to Newegg or 2. PAY to have it shipped to ASUS to have them replace their defective product 2.
Summary: I'm going back to school and didn't want to lug my laptop and use most of my text books in ebook form. But didnt want to play apples extreme prices. I think this is going to be great, unless i get one of them no electronics in class professors.
Pros: Its lighter than a laptop. the docking keyboard is sweet to use. I'm not a fan of smart phones so this is perfect for me. File management is great, I can quickly uninstall apps. I didnt have to over pay for a Ipad. Can play music read pdf and epub out of the box. Plug and play connection to my PC...
Cons: Owners manual is awful. Charging cord is too short! Android market is kinda chaotic, but this is my 1st time. Mobo doesn't play mpeg well. tegra app crashs on start up. Why doesn't this have a built in video prog? Moving files from SD card to main storage is easy now but at 1st was a hassle.
Summary: -Purchased the bundle package with the 32gig Transformer,docking keyboard, and sleeve protector. I bought the wife an ipad2 for mother's day and wanted something with android like my phone. Ipad2 is nice and slick, but I don't like using it for web browsing.
Pros: -navigation -flash -size -sd card reader and usb ports(with the docking keyboard)
Cons: -a little choppy when web browsing at times -not quite as smooth as the ipad2 when moving between screens/apps/scrolling/etc. -Doesn't feel as sturdy as the ipad2 and I'm not sure about physical durability since I've only had it for a week. We'll see.
Summary: I have had mine now for a couple of weeks and love it. I haven't had any of the issues that have been listed by other users. The OS updates and bug fixes work have fixed many of the issues that I had read about prior to purchasing mine.
Summary: I have a ton of ASUS stuff at home: motherboards, video cards, and more. Their support is usually passable, but for this product they are being perticularly unresponsive.
Pros: The specs speak for themselves. This has ursurped all of my non-content-generating/non-gaming computer activity. its great for browsing, chatting, and more. your not going to want to write war-and-peace on the onscreen keyboard.
Cons: This won't effect alot of folks, but there is no Dvorak layout for the mobile docking keyboard. Personally this renders the keyboard useless for me. The built in speaker kinda suck. With clearly limited space the speakers are tiny, underpowered, and misbalanced. The right speaker is louder than t...
Pros: This is a great unit! I've done my research and i'm really happy with this purchase. The IPS display is amazing with vivid sharp colors and images look tac sharp on this screen. Best investment for my photography business.
Summary: I wasn't sure whether I needed another computing platform in the house. I have an Android smartphone, a netbook, a laptop, and a full-tower desktop PC. After receiving the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, I've barely put it down.
Pros: Relatively lightweight. Sharp, bright, high contrast screen. Only Android table with a keyboard dock. Multiple USB host ports on keyboard. Extended battery life. Easy to root.
Cons: Tablet + Keyboard comes surprisingly close to netbook in size and weight. Some video codecs work better than others. Speakers could be better (but headphone jack is crystal clear).
Pros: Very solid construction. Fast, versitile, great battery, looks great...whay can I say, it's a great machine.
Cons: There is some bleeding around the bottom corners but that is only at startup. A black screen with a small bright white logo in the center...I'm not surprised. It's not the least bit visible after startup.
