5 out of 5 eggsAwesome tablet at an awesome price.

Pros: This is a great tablet for the money. It is fast with its quad core possessor. This is a great multitasker with its floating widgets. There is plenty of real estate for apps and widgets. The video quality and performance crushes my wife's iPad mini.

Cons: Android 4.2.2, I mean it could at least be running 4.3. Android 4.4 has been rolling out for the past 6 months and Asus is only worried about their PadFone. Hopefully it will be acknowledged soon

5 out of 5 eggsBest tablet for this price.

Pros: I went for this because it has a perfect set of specs for the price point. I was handily amazed.

Build quality is so much better than my nexus 7 2014 and my Tab3. It's a little heavier but I'd take heavier over "the back creaks and pops and bends in" any day. It is glossy and smooth but doesn't feel like a Samsung device that can slip out of your hands like a 12lb bass for no reason at all. The screen is gorgeous, you really have to see it to believe it. Sure it is not the top tier model but the screen blew me away. Compared to a Lenovo and Acer tablet, the Memopad looks as good as a Tab3. The bezel is very well thought out too, it is not too wide, but it's wide enough to fit in my various stands and folios without the screen being obscured.

Cons: Not sure when we will get pushed an update but I don't care because I can flash whatever I want to it. Do yourself a huge favor if you're going to root and do it manually. CWM and RM will play VERY NICELY with this tablet if you are patient and take time to read... The information is scarce but the model is "K00L" which is awesome and plays nice with similar Asus tablet software.

Not a complaint against Asus or the Memopad, but I really hate every single tablet's usb port. WHY do they have to be in places that could easily get bent? Every tablet in this size range suffers from this. Something needs to happen with tablets not only for charging while you're using it but for people like me who like to hook tons of stuff up using OTG cables.

Also it took me a while to get a charging OTG cable to work but I had a portable hard drive and a Xbox360 controller receiver working after about a half hour of troubleshooting.

It isn't a CPU issue but I believe the internal memory is pretty darn slow. I haven't tested much but overall read speed seems identical between that and my 32gb sd card. Oh well.

Cameras are great but you will notice some heavy noise and block-artifacts indoors. There is a somewhat annoying lag between taking a picture and the (needless) shutter animation the tablet displays. The default camera is otherwise a joy to use, I can't say that about any Samsung devices!

Other Thoughts: Samsung fanboys bash Asus for bloatware. Who cares? You can uninstall the stuff that really gets in the way pretty easily. The tablet just feels darn good to use and minus the universal charge/USB socket issues that all tablets have I haven't enjoyed using a touch device this much since my first Galaxy Nexus phone. The white finish and the logo along with the perfectly rounded shell is not only something to show off but also something that will not scratch or crack easily. You can't expect impervious glass in this price range but any decent screen protector is a no-brainer if you have a problem with scratches like me.

If you're deciding between this and a way more expensive Samsung device with the same specs, please, give this a chance. I'm so glad I did.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat tablet for under $200

Pros: Great IPS screen. Plenty bright once you adjust to your preference. 1280x800 resolution for an 8" screen is just fine. Quad core. Quick and responsive, good wifi. Will accept a 64 microSD (SDXC) card (every tablet ever made should offer the ability to expand storage with a microSD card...I won't buy a tablet that doesn't)

Cons: Battery life is not impressive. It's not horrible, but it is a little disappointing. You won't get near 9 hours as advertised unless you leave the screen brightness settings at initial dim factory settings. Wish it had 2GB RAM.

Other Thoughts: Got this for my wife and she loves it. This is best buy in town at sale price of $179. If battery life was better, I'd give it 5 stars easy.

5 out of 5 eggsNice 8 Tablet

Pros: 8 inch Screen. Price, Quad core processor, DDR3 ram, & expandable msd card slot. This tablet is the perfect blend I was looking for. Started with an Ipad Mini Retina, but just didnt like the size of it (just a little too wide). Decided I liked the 8 inch Android size much better but only wanted to pay half of what I had paid for the Ipad. The Asus memo 8 fit the bill for me, handles everything super fast and am really enjoying having it (more than the Ipad mini)

Cons: Not Super HD Screen

Other Thoughts: Even thought the screen is not Super HD, it does look good in most instances. Only when you get super close to the screen can you see individual pixels. Works great for me and the money I saved getting this one will allow me to upgrade to whatever the bigger badder tablet will be in a few years.
Happy Hunting for you perfect tablet.

5 out of 5 eggscharging issue (update)

Pros: see prior review. solved prior charging issue

Cons: can not find a case to fit this will have to special order one..

Other Thoughts: in prior review of the device i stated it would not charge when in off (shutdown) mode. i was able to remedy the issue. if you have the same issue here is what should solve the problem.
if after update of asus 2.0.0.4 the device does not charge in off state you will need to wipe the cache and reset to factory via hard reset. a hard reset can be performed via the following steps.
1. shut device down completely.
2. press and hold volume up and press and hold power on. when you see the asus logo release the buttons. it is normal for screen to stay dark for a few seconds about 5 seconds or so. you will eventually have a "no command" with a red triangle warning.
3. press and hold power and tap volume up. you should now have a menu up. goto bottom and wipe system cache. restart device. *note pressing power power =enter*
4. repeat steps 1-3.*** EXCEPT do not perform wipe cache.***
5. now goto factory reset and select yes. then allow device to restart.
goto settings >battery and take notice of percentage. shut device down.
plug in charger wait about 30 minutes it should have charged. somewhat. i do not recommend using a usb port charger from a pc they do not have the same voltage or amp ratings as the one that was supplied.

as best as i can tell there appears to be a residual code that does not allow charging when off in the cache or new settings are not loaded with the asus update and must be forced to new update. or removed from old cache. this solved my issue. for no charging in power off state and i will not RMA this device..

4 out of 5 eggshas charging issue when off

Pros: it is a fast little tablet thin and light. moving around the system is easy to do as the text and screen are very clear. it comes with a stand. the cpu is not an integra processor but a can do lil arm v7 that has the might to get the job done. the mali gpu is also up to the task for clear graphics. microusb slot for charging and inteface with pc. the low price does not mean you are getting junk by any means bu ta bargain and decent tablet that will not need to be financed for 5 years.

Cons: finding a case for this is nearly impossible to do locally. so order one while you are in here. i would recommend the case advertised from asus. mine does not charge properly it goes to 86% when powered off and stops. charging. when i turn it on and resume charging it fills up.. sorry thats not acceptable.

Other Thoughts: i will buy another one as soon as i can just because this one may have a bad charger or charging port does not mean im going to string asus out on it.. i have a transformer t300 which performs flawlessly and have had it for over 18 months. with 0 issues. during an update process it did randomly restart one time perhaps it was something i touched .. but never saw it again. i would recommend it highly as a well to do budget tablet when a 7 inch hurts your eyes and a 10 inch is to much to schlepp on weekend getaway..
