Summary: It is time for me to give back to this great forum with a review, as an appreciation for all the good information I was able to find here before my purchase. It started in all it's innocence that I wanted an e-reader, and with the announcement of the Kindle Fire and the new Nook coming, I waited...
Pros: Good size / weight compromise, but slightly heavy if holding it for a long time. Good price, bought the refurbished Transformer and keyboard. Good screen resolution and color, at least for my 60 year old eyes. Exceptional battery life, if settings are for moderate battery use. The keyboard really...
Cons: Screen is shiny and really shows every touch by your finger, but that can be solved with a screen protector. Although the connector interface between the tablet and the keyboard feels solid and reliable, I fear that one misalignment one day could damage one of the pins, for a possible intermitten...
Summary: I will weigh back in in a few weeks with an update
Pros: My first tablet, although I've loved my Android phones. Arrived in one business day, in PERFECT (not even a fingerprint!) condition. Plugged it in, signed on to my secure network, signed on to my google account, and the tablet did the rest: Firmware upgrade, upgrade to ICS (version 4.0.3) all don...
Summary: I ordered the refurbished model, thinking I would save a couple of bucks. Have been VERY disappointed with Asus's quality control. Received the first one and it didn't work out of the box. The touch screen was dead. Newegg was very responsive to replace it.
Pros: Great display, the images are sharp and clear. Set up with my wireless was a breeze, loaded up the access code and away it went. Very pleased with that. Application speed and switching between apps was very quick and responsive.
Summary: great deal from newegg for combo. very easy to set up. just typed in my network password, logged into my google acct and installed my apps, and then it automatically downloaded android 4.0 update.
Pros: brilliant display great battery life doubles as a tablet and a netbook Refurbished? Who could tell? mint condition.
Cons: kinda heavy for its size, especially when connected to dock. short charging cable
Summary: Bought a Gumdrop case, and this tablet becomes very robust. I have no problem giving it to my 3 yrs old son or 2 yrs old nephew. The case protected the tablet from all the rough tumbling.
Pros: One of the best buy I ever did from Newegg. This is my first tablet, though I have plenty experience with Ipad through work and friends. I was considering between Transformer and Ipad2-32GB. After going through many reviews, I decided to go with this because the memory card option. As my first ta...
Cons: The speaker/sound was somewhat low. My Motorola Attrix phone is louder compared to this table. I am not sure whether this is default for this tablet (or any tablet for that matter because Ipad is not that much louder either), or it is a problem that caused the tablet to be refurbished at first. H...
Summary: -the filesystem shows internal storage as SDcard, and the external storage as /Removable/SDcard. it can be confusing at times, but a small frustration
Pros: -fast internet browsing; just a bit slower than you would get on a PC, but with pretty much the same functionality (with the right browser) -can stream movies and music over wifi via DLNA or network shares -bluetooth works great for file transfer and stereo headset -ICS -solid construction, and t...
Cons: -after ICS, I get more frequent crashes. I DO NOT blame this on hardware...this is due to the OS and/or Apps that I have installed, but still something worth mentioning. -occassional WIFI drops; usually solved by disconnecting and reconnecting to the AP -seems like only the right speaker works. I...
Summary: This is the second time I've done business with Newegg and will definitely be my last. I am anxiously awarting me refund, and since nothing else about this product was correct, I'm necessarily nervous.
Pros: NONE, Product will not work straight from shipping container. Nothing. Excellent paper weight
Cons: Shipped in foam sleve, no manuals, operationg directions and/or documentation. Advertized as a combo, but apparently that means you can purchase additional attachments. And above all, it is defective and will not turn on, right out of the package
Summary: Best tablets on the market; I've tried them all. Buy a separate sleeve and anti-glare screen protector. Some good apps: Dolphins Browser, Thumb Keyboard, PowerAmp, N64oid and PSX4droid, moboplayer, Dropbox, Evernote.
Pros: Feels great in your hands. Cheap because it's refurbished, but what's the difference? It works fine. So much better than an Ipad. Fantastic resolution and screen. Bright and clear. Awesome volume. Loud on most occasions. Love ICS. Didn't even bother rooting it. Nice stock settings. Minimal bloatw...
Cons: In the sun, it's tough to read, but then again, what screen isn't? Pretty weak and blurry camera. The Verizon sleeve it came with didn't fit. Pretty stupid. Good amount of flash memory but I bought a MicroSd 32gb Gskill to add to the tablet.
Summary: I ordered it, package arrived empty the first time. After great customer service from newegg, another package arrived 5 days later. When ordered I was given an offer for a free Verizon 888-0001 Case. Which I thought was awesome.. but when it arrived.
Pros: Great size for the price. Out of all the tablets currently on the market. Transformer is the way to go, with its accessory, it turns all current and future transformer tablets into quick swap netbooks for business and school
