Pros Super smoooth, fast, great build quality, quad core, ICS, Dock, 1080 p capture, 8 meg camera, micro SD, HDMI Out, great battery,
Cons No 3g, Wifi slightly degraded by fancy back, First was faulty, tf700 lurking down the road.
Summary My first unit had issues and returned it upset. Saw it at Microcenter for $449.00 (until 1/29/2012) and gave it another shot. No buyers remorse at all. Don't need higher resolution and I don't have to wait until June.
Thought about IPAD2 but no external memory,more $ for same internal memory and inferior cameras was a deal breaker.
Pros Gorilla glass
Physical Keyboard and the spare battery (it desperately needs it)
Cons Poor performance even on "hi performance" mode
Can't handle videos on websites very well
Very slow & hangs/crashes too often
Problamatic VOL keys, gets stuck
Keyboard is *not* well integrated with Android
Memory card slot doesn't secure card properly
Summary We've had this tab for around six months now and I can say this with confidence, not worth the money... I spent more time trying to get this thing run the basic programs like the browser than actually do something more fun or productive.
I'd never every buy another Asus product in my life. Stay clearn
Pros Nice display; easy to use
Cons Flimsy construction; have had two, and with each of them the screens cracked without direct impact; not covered by warranty; cheap glass; don't believe it is gorilla glass.
Summary Even with keyboard cover on, the screen can crack if anything hits from behind or if it falls even a short distance; need to take extreme care of it since it is very fragile; no warranty coverage of cracked screens despite it saying it has the best warranties. Very disappointed. Gone through two; can't afford to buy any more.
Pros Very fast game, and overall performance, average screen, but still high-res, great expandablilty compared to iPad, stunning camera, very thin, great battery life
Cons ICS is very glitchy, lots of force closing everywhere, browser is extremely frustrating, A pain in fact. GPS is a known issue, but asus gave me a free dongle which improved that. Wi-Fi speeds are on the slower side compared to my other devices.
Summary Great Tablet, but with some flaws. But I love it and use it every day. Highly recommend. But the Transformer Pad Infinity just came out and I will be upgrading to that soon. Should improve everything.
Pros 1. Microsd/usb, open system vs closed for ipad.
2. Keyboard feels great, which makes this good casual business use, vs almost only entertainment value of ipad.
3. Can use normal windows office docs
4. Even with keyboard it is very light to carry
Cons 1. Only hold 25 emails at a time in an email account. Very difficult to browse email history. This is a big drawback. So I still use blackberry for emails.
2. There is slight lag when I use finger to move page up/down. Not as spontaneous as ipad.
