4 out of 5 eggsEasy to use

Pros: I bought this tablet for my mom for Christmas 2013. I needed to get her something that would get here away from the Windows Computer that she seem to always have issues with. She has been using this device for 1 1/2 years now and loves it. She is able to check her email and the weather on a daily basis and keep up with family on social media sites. She even lets my nephews play some games on it when they are around. I added a 32GB micro SD card to it loaded with pictures of all her kids/grandkids and it still haves enough space to add apps to it when needed. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a device that is easy to use.

Cons: Battery doesn't last as long as I think they should last on tablets but then again I am spoiled by the awesome battery life of the iPads. Either way I feel if Apple can make their batteries run as long as they do between charges companies like ASUS should be able to as well which is why I gave it 4 out of 5.

4 out of 5 eggsOne tough tablet

Pros: It will do anything you want it to do plus more... takes a lot of usage from my kids and keeps on going. Excellent performer

Cons: Being a refurbished item the initial problem was not fixed (it did not close the back cover complete all around). I did purchased an extended warranty but dealing with the warranty people is another battle that I don't think I'll win. I'm still persisting on trying to had that fixed.

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps on Going

Pros: Durable. Well supported by developer community. Long battery life. Fast charging. Good display.

Cons: Relatively slow by modern (2014) standards. No oil-resistant glass coating. Requires special USB cable and proprietary charger, but a small negative given the really fast charging afforded by its 15V charger. Very low volume from speakers and headphones.

Other Thoughts: I bought this almost 2 years ago for $375 and I just completed another upgrade to Androiid 4.4.2 KitKat. Although Asus stopped upgrades after ICS, the developer community continues to provide updated ROMs. It's relatively slow to boot and shutdown by current standards, but everything else about this tablet remains fine for my browsing and blog reading. I have a Samsung tab 7 and my wife has an Asus Note 8 which are faster, but I prefer the size and feel of the TF101. I am worried about its continued reliability (2 years is old for a tablet), so I just ordered a new Asus TF107T after spending a lot of time reviewing the competition. My positive experience with the TF101 was a big influence on my decision. I haven't needed any support from ASUS. The few questions I've had were quickly answered via on-line resources,

2 out of 5 eggsMany Problems

Pros: Great at first, ran somewhat smooth. Very sleek and nice. The keyboard addition made it great for college.

Cons: Started freezing after a couple months, acted really glitchy and didn't work right.
Audio jack stopped working completely and customer service at both ASUS and the warranty company were poor.
Mini HDMI port stopped working shortly after the audio jack.
Last but not least, this device no longer works. When I power it on, the screen lights up and that's it. If I push the unlock/power button, the screen flashes blue, flickers a little, and goes back to black.

For the record, I took really good care of this device. Never dropped, never gotten wet, etc. etc.

Other Thoughts: This tablet could be better if the ASUS and the warranty people didn't have tech service people from India. It is hard to understand the people over the phone.

In addition, this tablet would be great if it was more stable. It used to crash a lot, freeze, etc. and it made using it difficult at times.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Experience...

Pros: The only pros was that it made it to my house. But never worked. Asus customer support walked me through the resetting process but nothing worked. Called up Newegg for a replacement but none left. So I exchanged it for the Nexus 7 32GB tablet.

Cons: Read pros.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible....

Pros: None

Cons: I ordered this tablet with high expectations. When I received the tablet in the mail, it had white spotting under the screen which suggests water damage, so I sent it back the same day and processed the return for a replacement. Two weeks later, I received the replacement only to find that it would not turn on, even after several hours of charging. I bought this as an anniversary gift to my husband and had to beg for a refund under the condition that I bought a brand new tablet ($300) in order to make sure that I had his gift in time for our anniversary. I can't speak to ease of access with the tablet, because I never got one that worked! It also does not fit the 10.1" tablet case, because it is the wide version. I couldn't find a case to fit the wide tablet.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent android tablet. Found it perfect in size and operation for several months

Cons: Failed to take a charge after about 6 months. Thought it might be the charging cable so bought another cable assembly. It worked for about 1 month and again tablet would not charge. Thank goodness my son purchased a service warranty agreement. Sent unit back for supposed replacement.

Other Thoughts: Service warranty extension will NOT replace the unit. They send you a gift card and it is up to you to find another replacement. I found the same unit is noi longer available so had to research all over again for the best unit for the price.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your review on the TF101 tablet.

First and foremost, I am sorry the tablet malfunctioned in such a short amount of time. Even though you have to look for a replacement model, I am glad you were able to get a gift card to find a new tablet.

Should you need any help while researching the different options available to you, please let me know, and I will be happy to assist you in finding a replacement. My email is cl-mark@asus.com.

Regards,

Mark
