Asus Transformer Pad 300
4 October 2014
Summary: Build quality quality could be better, but at £399 the Asus Transformer Pad 300 offers great value for money, tremendous performance, the ability to download apps, and all the features one would expect of a tablet, with extra laptop functionality. If you’re looking for a good value tablet, the Asus Transformer Pad 300 is worth checking out.
Excerpt: Asus Transformer Pad 300 is a 10.1-inch Android tablet which is selling with or without a keyboard dock that effectively transforms it into a small laptop. In addition, it sports NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and a memory card slot.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: Though it isn't as thin or as sturdy, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 delivers Prime levels of performance at a more affordable price.
Pros: The Asus Transformer Pad TF300's Tegra 3-induced performance more or less matches the Transformer Prime's and goes a step further with a better rear camera, faster Wi-Fi performance, a more responsive screen, and an actual (and official) GPS feature. Micro-HDMI and microSD return, as does the keyboard option. The $350 entry price makes the TF300 the best full-Android tablet value currently on the market.
Cons: The tablet's design isn't as thin, sturdy, or sexy as the Transformer Prime's and feels a bit hollow in comparison. The $150 keyboard dock is still $150. The screen isn't outside-friendly, like the Prime's.
Summary: Priced at an MRP of Rs 43,999, the Transformer Pad TF300TG is cheaper than the Transformer Prime TF201 by a good Rs 6,000. What you don’t get are metal shell and Super IPS+ display, plus the Pad TF300TG is a tad heavier and thicker than the Prime TF201. On the other hand, the variant of the Prime TF201 being sold in India is 64GB, Wi-Fi only. The Pad TF300TG has half the amount of on-board storage and offers 3G support via SIM card.
Conclusion: So if your idea of a good time is a slinky all metal body, a camera that flashes and sunlight penetrating screen brightness, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 will likely fall short of your tablet-top expectations and we would heartily recommend you snap up a Prime. If however you're more concerned about a cost-effective netbook replacement that has a corking GPS unit, top-notch specs, a keyboard with decent travel and enough power to chew through even the most gruelling of...
Pros: Great price, Extensive connectivity, Great camera, Superb functionality
Cons: Screen could be brighter, Low max speaker volume, No camera flash, Plastic build may put some off
Summary: Well-Designed Transformer. For Asus, the Transformer Pad tablet family has become a tradition. Asus places the future of the entire family on its latest addition, the Transformer Pad TF300T. Based on its powerful Nvidia Tegra 3 hardware, we believe this is a sure bet.
Pros: Stable viewing angles, High performance, Great integration with the keyboard dock, The docking keyboard is a nice addition which helps extend the battery life. The display is very good.
Cons: Not very bright, A 3G module. This is available at a premium in other versions of this model.
Summary: IN A mostly black and white world of Android tablets, the bright red Asus Transformer Pad TF300T is a welcome sight.The TF300T is the latest model to be rolled out from the entry-level Transformers Pad series and it promises to offer value at an affordable price
Summary: Although the Transformer Pad TF300 isn't flawless, Asus met our expectations in delivering a worthy successor to last year's Eee Pad Transformer . Compared to the pricier Transformer Prime , the Transformer Pad looks and feels slightly cheaper, its screen isn't as bright and its Tegra 3 processor is clocked slightly lower, but it remains an attractive option if you're seeking a more affordable solution.
Conclusion: A mild refresh of its predecessor, but at a lower price, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 remains a top 10-inch Android tablet that packs a fast CPU, Ice Cream Sandwich, and an optional keyboard dock that turns it into a true productivity machine.
