Summary: Bought this back in August on sale for $200. Am very glad I did not pay full price for it. I have owned several windows 8" tablets and I have to say this one does not get my recommendation. Wireless is quite bad; the most limited range of all my tablets. Also, if your hand holding the tablet accidentally covers the wireless radio, your signal will be affected even if you are several feet from the router. The tablet does a poor job waking up from hibernation.
AVOID - design is known to be defective, no fix anticipated
14 November 2014
Summary: Purchased a while ago, within weeks of frequent use the digitizer became unreliable until failing completely. " This device cannot start. (Code 10) STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR " Googled the problem and found many people having same issue. Mailed to service, they lost my device (in their own building), found it more than a week later, replaced a cable ... worked good enough for my purposes. Now it BROKE AGAIN ...
Great digitizer but no Gorilla Glass and problems with Miracast too
29 October 2014
Summary: This is a great tablet if you need the digitizer but the screen gets all smudged up with fingerprints because Asus tried to save a few bucks on Gorilla glass. If you get a screen protector (I used JOTO) it helps a lot. Sometimes the tablet takes a while to turn on which is annoying.
Stylus stopped working after a system update, same issue after reset
15 October 2014
Summary: After performing a normal system update, the stylus driver stopped working. The main reason someone would want to select this tablet over the other 8" windows tablets would be simply for the stylus. Unfortunately, even after several system updates, as well as a full factory restore, the same issue occurs. After contacting ASUS support, no luck came out of this. I'm not sure why this cant be easily fixed.
I have been more aggravated with this thing than I have been happy with it

Summary: I've been using this tablet for about 2 months now. Let me start off by saying this, I have been more aggravated with this thing than I have been happy with it. I know it's an entry level tablet, but this thing is terrible. I bought this tablet as a student, hoping to use it in my classes to take notes with. I am an engineering student, so i thought i would be able to take down all my math notes with this, WRONG.
Summary: I know there are other brands out there that are specifically for digital artists but they were a bit out of my budget. But this was under budget,a great brand and I love it. I bought it to get the Photoshop app on and draw and paint on it. Just what I wanted!
Summary: The features of this product, on paper, were perfect for my needs. I am a Director of a software company and am frequently on the road, in the city for business. I am also an illustrator at home (hobby). When on the move this tablet serves as a quick and convenient access point. When I have free time I can illustrate from anywhere.... that was the idea anyway. Generally, I love ASUS products. They are my primary, go to brand.
Summary: For this price, I will put up with the minor quirks. Wacom's feel driver is out and makes the pen experience much better than before, though the edges of the screen show much poorer performance than the center. The wireless connection in ac speed, very fast. In order to get more than one bluetooth device (eg, mouse and keyboard) to work at the same time as the wifi, you'll need to enter the device manager and change the settings for you wireless adapter: the wireless...
I've hugged this little thing more times than any other portable device.
8 October 2014
Summary: I've had this little dude for a while now, and It's been the most pleasing computer purchase since I built my gaming rig. I've had plenty of labtops, netbooks, and a few tablets over the years all in pursuit of something small, portable, powerful, and useful. This has delivered in spades. The full proper windows OS means no compromising on productivity, the small form factor means it actually can go with you whenever where ever.
