Summary: The hardware on this tablet is top of the line for any tablet I have ever encountered. It's thin and light weight, the screen is durable and reactive, and the battery never seems to die. That being said, I would not recommend buying this tablet. The Operating system on this machine offers the most limited app choices I have ever seen. The entire market is run by Microsoft, so none of their competitor software is available.
Summary: I would have loved the ASUS if the volume was louder than a whisper. When streaming,I had to choose to watch or hear because the volume was so low I had to hold the tablet to my ear or just watch and guess at what was being said. The camera was ok. I returned it to in hopes to get a replacement that volume was good especially since they have quad speakers, but the seller refunded instead.
Summary: The unit was heavy and either extremely slow to respond to the touch screen or it didn't respond at all, making it extremely frustrating. It took three or four tries to make it respond. The good points are that the tablet had vivid color and I love that it had windows and a version of office. I eventually went to the Ipad Air, but it has it's disadvantages too. Thought it is quick to respond to touch and extremely light weight.
Summary: For the price, its a great portable laptop/tablet. You cant play Wow or Star Craft or any Steam network games, but you do have Halo and other fun games. The big issue with me was xbox music. This tablet wont let you download ITunes and its really a pain in the butt trying to download everything to the cloud... Also, it glitches like crazy and apps close out of the blue and it can get very frustrating. I would give this to a student.
Too many issues to justify keeping, even for a superlow price.

Summary: This product had issues from the getgo. When it went to sleep it wouldn't wake up without a hard shutdown. 90% of the time whenever I would shutdown the computer it would turn on again within 5 minutes. When I contacted ASUS tech support about the issues I was having they informed me that these were by design. Definitely would not buy this again.
Summary: Not very user friendly and its windows based so it will not let you log on to ANY of your apps unless you create a windows account. The design is gorgeous and flawless, however the operating system is very hard to setup (and I am tech savy) and not very user friendly. I was very disappointed in the way windows set this up compared to other tablets I have purchased. I am considering returning the product because of this.
