Pros: I bought this tablet for my mom for Christmas 2013. I needed to get her something that would get here away from the Windows Computer that she seem to always have issues with. She has been using this device for 1 1/2 years now and loves it. She is able to check her email and the weather on a daily...
Cons: Battery doesn't last as long as I think they should last on tablets but then again I am spoiled by the awesome battery life of the iPads. Either way I feel if Apple can make their batteries run as long as they do between charges companies like ASUS should be able to as well which is why I gave it...
Pros: It will do anything you want it to do plus more... takes a lot of usage from my kids and keeps on going. Excellent performer
Cons: Being a refurbished item the initial problem was not fixed (it did not close the back cover complete all around). I did purchased an extended warranty but dealing with the warranty people is another battle that I don't think I'll win. I'm still persisting on trying to had that fixed.
Summary: I have owned this tablet (with the dock) for two years and have been overall very satisfied. I bought it used for about $250 (with dock) and for that price, I can't really complain. It is NOT worth $480 though.
Pros: *Easy update to ICS. *Easy to Root and Install ROMS *Optional Keyboard is great, though the touch pad can be finicky at times. *Pretty durable, despite sounding very squeaky. Held up through two long trips and bringing it to school everyday. I did manage to make a small crack on the back though. ...
Cons: *Sides squeak, just as other's have commented *Quiet speakers, not high quality, but not terrible either. Just not very loud. *Screen Glare. Don't even think about using this tablet outside. Even being directly underneath bright lights can be an annoyance. *Slow down on Android 3.2 and 4.0. Requi...
Summary: Going to request an RMA this week. Unfortunately I used this to read all my ebooks for college and the new semester just started so I'm kind of out of 5 text books I desperately need for the time being(at least during class).
Pros: Ran everything I wanted great. Couldn't complain and absolutely loved it.
Cons: Just stopped charging today. I have it connected made sure power is going to the outlets the whole thing and it still says "connect your charger" Now it's to dead to even power on. Seems I have that issue others are experiencing but ~4 months of pleasant use.
Summary: I got another unit and although this one did not look as new as the previous one (these are supposed to be refurbished, so I can't complain), it actually was stable and worked. I have not had any major issues since receiving it except this popping noise that comes from the speakers every so often.
Pros: Nice screen, the processor handles video very well and actually does a better job than my AMD C-60 netbook when playing video on things like Netflix and HD videos on Youtube.
Cons: Roll the dice with quality control. I returned the first unit I got because it had some serious issues with ICS. The unit would not stay on, i.e. it would not sleep and wake from pressing the power button. It would constantly shut itself down if not connected to the charger. It was very annoying ...
