Summary: Bought especially to entertain our 10 month old baby on long trips. Downloaded iTunes and bought 5 videos for him (30 min TV shows) I had to pull over in the middle of the Garden State Parkway 5 times in a 70 min drive, to the Cape May Ferry, to restart the tablet because video kept freezing while sound kept playing. Every 20 min we had a baby crying bloody hell because Elmo either frozed or screen went black. No other programs were running, just iTunes.
Summary: I shopped around forever for a tablet and finally landed on this one. The price was good given it came with Office Home & Student. I plugged it in and charged it up. Went to use it and I thought everything was fine. I was excited to have it and had to play around with Windows 8 a bit to figure it out. Here is where I am very unhappy. As with most computers, when you buy them you instantly have to update almost everything because security fixes come out all the time.
Summary: After reviewing several tablets as a gift for my husband, I settled on the Asus. I purchased a laptop several years ago and had a lot of success with it, so I thought I'd stick with a trusted brand. Wrong! While the features are very nice, one major component is Windows. When we tried to install Windows, we were told it was only available to use in Asia.
Summary: I expected to love this tablet since I have an Asus Transformer Prime but this tablet is not as durable. First off it already came with one scratch on the screen fresh out of the box. I purchased the matching Asus keyboard and cover that goes with this tablet and it has put another scratch on the screen the first time I hooked it up.. They are deep scratches as well and I am gentle with my things.
Summary: I have only had this tablet for 2 months and I have had to "refresh" it 3 times. Every time you "refresh" it you lose all pics, programs (like microsoft office) and apps you have installed. There is a "refresh lite" that does not remove apps purchased form the microsoft store, but "refresh lite" has never fixed my problems. So now I have to learn how to use the ASUS webstorage feature (which is free ...
Summary: had to return tablet on 5th day did a software update system rebooted after no Bluetooth connection to keyboard and no wifi connection to internet called square trade and was told to call seller as it was less than 30 days was when I called amazon told to return unit for full refund as others were having same problems now I have keyboard, pen and eeekit bundle but no tablet
Summary: When I first got this unit on July 23rd, I thought it was going to be a great little full speed Windows 8 unit, and in fact my original review was marvelous. Had some minor issue getting Windows Update to actually work, but after downloading and installing the ASUS updates and a few misplaced reboots, it loaded all of the updates (a considerable amount) without incident.
Summary: the packaging looks nice, to pull it out of the box. The unit itself is nice, with a widescreen for movies. The screen isnt as bright as an ipad. OFFICE 2013 IS NOT INSTALLED. the unit came with office 2010 installed, and not licensed. The license was in the box, but it is for 2013. I have not resolved this issue yet. I will update if resolved. after expediting the shipping for a lovely fee, I cant use it.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this Asus ME400C-C2 Windows 8 tablet. It arrived quickly and was nicely packaged. It is a very attractive tablet, slightly bigger than an iPad but lighter in weight than the iPad. Unfortunately it turned out to be disappointing on a number of levels: -the touch screen did not always respond whether using one's finger or a stylus, or the response was delayed -when it was doing updates you frequently had no idea if it was working or not,...
