Fantastic piece of kit, pity it had to go back
24 June 2011
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.
Summary: I've been a mac user for 10 years, all sort of tools are in my studio, ipod,macbook pro, imac, etc. The only thing that i didn't get it's the IPAD. Asus Eeepad it's far away from the Ipad and it's faster, lighter, brighter and REPRODUCE FLASH. The only thing that you have to be aware it's that many applications that you might have on the iphone (if you are a mac user) you will not get them on the Android yet.
Summary: I'm sure youve all see the adverts and the transformer certainly lives up to my impressions of being the best tablet available to buy currently. Considering the pros; high spec, high def, low cost, excellent build quality, all round functionality, long battery life and general ease of setup & use it beats ALL competitors hands dow.
Summary: I'm typing this review on the eee pad - so that's an indication of how usable I find it. Over all I'm very happy. The unit is well made and quite slim. It has a robust feel but is not heavy. The broad margins around the screen give you something to grab hold of when you carry it around, and seem a good idea to me. The widescreen form factor is slightly at odds with many apps - reading web pages, for example - but not a problem.
Summary: I originally planned on getting myself an ipad, but after reading reviews and giving real thought to what it is i wanted out of my tablet, i decided to have another look around, eventually settling on the asus eee pad. After reading review after review, both expert and consumer, i came to the conclusion that this was the best out there. I received mine yesterday, and i havent put it down yet.
Summary: Buying the Asus transformer is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I also have the IPAD 2 and the transformer beats it hand down for the following reasons. 1) Android Honeycomb on this device is so good that it's 99% replaced my pc use and if find android so much faster than using windows! and multi tasking works brilliantly 2) the keyboard dock is just brilliant and funnily enough I actually use it docked quite alot of the time it so much faster than a netbook!.
Summary: This is day 3 of using the Asus transformer with the optional keyboard and I would have to say that it is a good bit of kit. The battery life is loooong, with the keyboard connected, it lasts for days with normal use. The screen is very sharp and it's very snappy with smooth scrolling and fast performance. It makes the Samsung Tab I have here seem slow.
