Summary: This is a great device. Everything has been just as good as I hoped and expected. Bought the pad without the keyboard and really haven't felt a need to buy it. This is just a great device for web surfing and simple things as video playback. Wouldn't count on it as the only pc for the household thou.
Summary: Well, maybe that's overstating things. It can't slide up bannisters or pull standard lamps out of carpet bags, but it's an impressive piece of technology for a fair bit less than its Apple-y counterpart. It's hugely better than the Acer Iconia A500, which froze solid within minutes of booting up and went back to the suppliers post haste.
Summary: I have had my eee pad Transformer now for 3 weeks. Even now I am discovering new things it can do. I have never had an iPad but at least one iPad owner has looked at my Transformer with some envy. But I get ahead of myself. The box arrived (smaller than I expected) with the device and a charger plus magic cable and a couple of very slim instruction leaflets. There is no protective sleeve or case at all and this is the first extra you need to buy.
Summary: I've been using the tablet and keyboard for a couple of weeks now and my experience so far has been excellent. The screen is clear and sharp and the touch navigation works very well. It's a pleasure to use the Honeycomb 3.1 operating system. Having read some of the negative comments in the previous reviews I struggle to understand some of the remarks, ie: - At first I didn't understand how to dock the screen into the keyboard, but once I figured it out it's 100%...
Summary: We had an Acer ultra-portable laptop mainly for watching movies on planes and on holiday apartment TVs. It was 13.3" but we found it too big and awkward on planes (particularly with Ryanair type space) so we decided to sell it and get a tablet for the same purpose. I pondered the decision for months, considering the options for size, type, make, model etc and just got more confused. I eventually went for the 10" Asus Eeepad Transformer (without the optional keyboard).
Summary: I looked into the tablet market extensively. I first bought an Archos 101 as I wasn't sure if I would use a tablet and didn't want to spend too much. The Archos was OK (3 stars) but I did use it a lot. So I looked at the market again and wanted a Honeycomb machine and really there are 4 available, the Asus, Xoom, Galaxy 10.1 and Iconia. Having read many reviews I decided on the Asus and it quite brilliant. There is a lot said about weight and thickness.
Summary: I bought the transformer to see if it could work as a replacement for my work laptop (Dell Precision - huge but powerful). It really is a great piece of kit that oh-so-nearly does the job. The screen is a bit too small to look at all day (the HDMI slot didn't allow me to connect to the monitors I had available to make up for this), the VNC apps I could find didn't quite work as I want them to with my servers (which I need as a developer), I couldn't quite get the...
Summary: I bought to add to make easier when i sit in the living room plus easy for my dad to read large fonts,etc... it quite light plus good display size also some great games like Angry Bird and battery life is great as much longer can pick up wifi very easy, faster browser is dolphin hd which is good one. If you buy then it upgrade to honeycomb 3.1 that look improvement.
Summary: Well, I took the plunge, ignored all the voices in my head saying "sure it's all very well being different, but how can a squillion sales be wrong' - just like Microsoft, right?! and so I bought the Asus Eee Pad Transformer with keyboard. I remember when Apple was the underdog - the left-field choice of nerds, such is life.
Summary: I bought the Asus tablet couple of weeks ago mainly as a consumer device to browse the internet, check e-mails, movies etc. The device is slim and light and has a great screen. My only disappointment has been the lack of a USB port as it would have been useful for a 3g dongle. You will be hard pressed to find quality hardware at this price anywhere. The bit that lets it down is the OS. I was hoping with Android 3.1 most of the issues would have been resolved.
