Summary: The specs looked great. But then it just stopped working. It doesn't turn on. ..Just a blank screen. The power light doesn't come on unless it's plugged in. I tried the using the reset (the little hole next to the power button), but that didn't work. I'm sending it back for a new one. ...hope I get a better one.
Summary: So I bought this from the Microsoft store in January of this year. I won't go into too much detail about how horrible Windows 8 is, but everything you ever read about it is true. On screen keyboard is unusable with a lack of properly functioning autocorrect, screen shuts off after 2-3 minutes no matter what the settings are, Chrome is barely functioning, internet explorer is internet explorer, nothing of any use in the microsoft store.
Summary: It has been 12 weeks since I recieved my tablet and for 4 of those weeks it has been in Texas getting repaired. I'm very happy with it's performance when I have it and it's working. Within a month of recieving it I went to power it on and nothing came up on the screen. I sent it back and because they had to change the main board I lost all the data/programs that I had installed.
Summary: This computer was exactly what I wanted. Pen interface for using OneNote, touch for fun, Intel processor so you can install any windows app. Fantastic! ...and with the extra keyboard it has 20 hours of battery life (10 hours without the keyboard). The first one I got malfunctioned the day I got it. The screen would flicker and blur beyond recognition, it would work for a couples of hours if you bent or pressed on the computer's back in the right way.
Summary: My purchase was arrived on time. I enjoyed my TF810C ever since. First, my initial IP-configuration problem was resolved by itself after update. Second, problem in installation of second-language were totally due to Microsoft's coward policy for not to have Taiwanian (Traditional) Chinese Service Package available here in US, but I found way to resolve it anyway. I feel if there were some informative websites on Window 8 in the ASUS manual, it would be wonderful.
Pros: Light weight, good battery life nice display, and Fully functional Windows 8 System. When they work I am very pleased.
Cons: Reliability. I have rolled out five company wide so far and two of them have had to be sent in for repair because they just would not turn on. One of them has been having a video driver issue which keeps crashes the Operating system.
Summary: It's good but there are pros and cons , pro is the the price through Amazon was good and battery life is really good. Cons it glitches from time to time. So over all I'm content , just not blow. Away.
Summary: This device is a disaster. WiFi and Bluetooth do not work, despite all the driver reloads you try. The problem is that Asus will not buy updated drivers from Broadcomm and Broadcomm won't otherwise support their radio hardware. Don't expect to do any meaningful work on this device! If it hadn't been for this, it would have been the most AWESOME Win8 tablet around. Too bad I can't actually work on it.
Summary: Any reviewer who calls the the Vivotab the best computer ever is surely exaggerating, but it is a good computer, and I certainly like mine. It is a great looking device, thin, metallic, and light. It always makes me happy to look at, and it functions alright. I bought this device because I truly wanted a hybrid computer. Mostly I use it as a notebook, but if I need to stand up and speak and hold my computer at the same time, I can use this device as a tablet.
Failed after 1 month - Discovered this is not an uncommon issue
10 August 2013
Pros: This was the very perfect solution for what I was looking for. The keyboard combination (purchased separately) greatly extended the already long battery life of this unit. I can use it also with a USB battery to even further extend its life.
Cons: This unit died after a single month. Did some online troubleshooting to find that this is not uncommon. Very disheartening since I swear by ASUS and have purchased nothing but ASUS Mobos and laptops for my company over the past 10 years. From what I read, most people had sent theirs in for repairs, but ended up getting new ones sent back to them instead their originals. (Ref: Forums on tabletpcreview)
