2 out of 5 eggsdon't trust for refurb

Pros: ASUS makes a decent product. Biggest design flaw is that the charger (stock wall charger or car charger) will not keep up with battery drain while plugged in and watching streaming movies. Otherwise, speed, screen, sound, durability have been great. (we have 2)

Cons: Bought as a refurb with rebate. Took this on Vacation and it broke (bad ASUS refurb dependability. black screen unresponsive) as we went to visit relatives out of state. Newegg replaced it, but didn't give any extra time to submit the rebate. Because the replacement "arrived" before the rebate was due (even though we were out of town), Newegg won't give Visa rebate. Buyers need to know that they can't trust Newegg to do the right thing if the refurb fails. Unfortunately the fail rate on these ASUS refurbs seem to be fairly high and Newegg can't be counted on to deal fairly with customers who buy them.

Other Thoughts: Bought a refurb from Newegg with some apprehension as I had noticed the attrition in their customer service. The old Newegg would have been a sure thing, the new Newegg can't be trusted with a refurb. Stay away from Newegg refurbs!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. The AC adapter should allow continues power to the tablet ad designed unless it is faulty. All ASUS refurbished or recertified products undergo intensive quality control testing and inspections, this is an isolated case. ASUS provides warranty for the laptop in order to fix or repair any isolated factory escape defect. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N141156646 on the subject line.

1 out of 5 eggsNo WiFi

Pros: Great physical condition, sharp display.

Cons: WiFi does not work. Reset the tablet twice, still won't work. One out of ten tries will get it connected for a few minutes, then it disconnects. Can't use my Google account because it won't get passed the screen trying to connect WiFi. Cost me $15 to return, so there goes the good price . . . .

Other Thoughts: I see there are other comments about this tablet not having WiFi. Apparently quality control at Asus is not too high.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Doug,

It's great knowing that you like the tablet. I do understand your concern regarding the issue with the WIFI device. Please verify if the onboard WIFI device was enabled, it is within range to an established wireless router or access point and internet service is working properly. Also, please verify if the unit is running with the most current system update. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N141156663 on the subject line.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: None

Cons: WiFi does not work.

Other Thoughts: Second tablet sent and still WiFi is not working. Same problem with both of them. Luckily Newegg's return department is easy to work with. Sending the second one back, hopefully the third will work. Asus must not have any Q/C on their refurbs.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

5 out of 5 eggsBetter then expected

Pros: Being that it's refurbished wasn't sure what to expect, but there was nothing I could see on it at all to indicate it had any kind of use what so ever.

Great little tablet. Does what we want it to do.
Can play every game that wanted to play so far, and plays movies fine.

The screen is very responsive, the minimal included, etc., are good and fine.

As a matter of fact the wife and kids like it so much I haven't seen it very much since I got it. I'll have to get another just so I can get mine back..

Cons: Nothing major.

I could mention the other things some others have vehemently ranted about like the mini-USB cable being short. But then that would be overly whiny..since the included one works fine and I ordered a 6' one for two dollars.

Other Thoughts: To play all the latest movie codecs (besides the most common already supported) you will want to download a codec that supports this chip set, and, or get the free VLC player too.
After I did this all movies so far have been smooth.

3 out of 5 eggsNo Wifi with mine either

Pros: Specs are great.. Not sure how it works as a tablet. w/o wifi its not much more than a paperweight. Price is good. will be happy if someday I have a working one.
Oh yea shipping was fast Purchased it 8/18 received it 3 days later. Sent it out RMA the next day at my cost...

Cons: $14 to ship back to ASUS..
No tablet yet nor one in the near future, this is copied from ASUS RMA status...

1 CCOKCT067653 2014/08/27 Product repair is in progress. (notice the received date. its now 2014/09/05)

Other Thoughts: If you're lucky get a good one and don't have to go through this hassle, but even if yours is bad once fixed you get a quality tablet at a decent price, someday..

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Tablet

Pros: Great Tablet, Great Speed! This is by far the best tablet I have owned (I have owned 3 so far). I mainly got this tablet for the screen size the last tablet was an Android 4.1 8" with 16GB Storage space but I wanted the larger screen for entertainment and writing documents. So there was not much upgrade other than screen size, so I thought. I was wrong. The screen size is not only bigger but MUCH more crisp than the other of close to the same screen resolution, speed is much better even though they were both Quad-Core this one runs MUCH faster and Smoother, and the Review says it's Android 4.1 but is actually came with Android 4.2! so that was great! So for me this tablet does everything I need it to VERY Nicely runs all apps I have installed so far very smoothly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great Tablet for the Price don't think it can be beat. Got the GSkill 32GB SD CARD works great in it for extra storage. I even found a cheap 32GB Flash Drive on sale at a local retailer and I used a Micro-to-USB dongle and it reads it and runs files off of the flash drive FAST. So again this tablet has great performance and extra accessories that can be added to it including Bluetooth devices.

3 out of 5 eggsQuality Control needs improvement

Pros: Great screen no dead pixels, good battery life, fast APU, no physical damage at all,

Cons: The GPS does not show up and I can`t get it to function, bad quality control.

Other Thoughts: Everything worked perfectly accept for the GPS, improve the quality control process and this Tablet would be a perfect 5 stars.
I had to take 2 stars off because of the dead GPS, and because it will cost me more money to repair or replace the unit.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for the positive comment you have provided to the tablet. I certainly understand your concern regarding the GPS related issue, which is an isolated case.

4 out of 5 eggsDont look Referbished

Pros: Updated to 4.2.1 after i turned it on. May wanna be ready to factory reset it after that i had an issue with the screen not detecting the screen after that and the factory reset did the trick. Works smmoooth and fast picks up 3g better then my phone and faster with it.
Mini HDMI and mini usb port included on the tablet may wanna grab that MiNi HDMI adapter to go with the tablet if your planning on using it.
USB cable it comes with is not special it can be used for charge or data transfer not just the charger.
Over ALL I feel i got my moneys worth out of it and im happy with it.
Battery last about 7 hours with web browse and navigation
Tablet handles games NICE !

Cons: Tablet charges with one amp or more charger through the only usb mini port it has and finding a usb hub for it to fix this might cause a bit of looking up to find one.

Will NOT charge while plugged up to your computer tried that one too and no option to make it I looked for that as well.
Soooo Need a usb port? NO problem! Just don't plan on charging it will you need that port.

Screen is really pressure sensitive to hard of a touch will do nothing. Found this issue when i was doing a long press to move an icon. Intermittently acts this way with kingsoft office as well. Its not the screen swipe to log in works just fine when it does that I checked it.

Other Thoughts: Now lets talk about the sound. I have 2 year old notebook from Asus and i was like WOW that notebook is loud and sounds nice.
Well i was dissapointed with the sound not being very loud when i tried it. Asus what happen there? Road noise in a 2008 Toyota Prius is making it hard to hear it when i play music from it UH......REALY? Ive got a Hansspad 10.1 that puts this things volume to shame and almost drowns it out.
Dont get my wrong people you can hear it. It has a Moderate volume and sounds nice but just dont get to far from it and expect to hear everything.

1 out of 5 eggswon't connect to WiFi

4 out of 5 eggsgreat so far

Pros: Easy to set up
Not a lot of bloatware
Expandable memory
Responsive smooth touchscreen

Cons: Average display
Meh battery

Other Thoughts: All in all a great and solid budget friendly tablet. Heck, its gone down $20 since i bought it 4 days ago! I would easily recommend this for work & play. No need spending $500 for a 10 inch tablet. Its got everything an average person would need and then some. If you want a better display, pick the 7inch nexus 7.
