This review is from: ASUS ME181C-A1-WH Intel Atom Z3745 1GB Memory 16GB eMMC 8.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Nice tablet until it breaks. Terrible company.

Cons: After one month the tablet started having problems charging. The usb/charger port was already failing. After two months it wouldn't charge at all. I sent it to ASUS for warranty repair (I had to pay the shipping). ASUS sent me a $203 invoice to fix it, saying that the failure was due to damage. A $203 bill to fix a $130 tablet??? Thanks for nothing. I don't understand how the charger ports on my phones can go years without malfunction but my ASUS Memopad charger port couldn't even make it a month.

This is a delicate tablet, and ASUS will NOT repair it for you. BEWARE. Don't waste your time trying to appeal or argue. Their warranty system is designed to easily brush you aside. If you do decide to buy anything from ASUS, you absolutely have to buy coverage that will replace it no matter what, because ASUS will consider any malfunction to be your fault.

Don't end up with a 2-month old $130 paperweight like I did.

Other Thoughts: I just want to be clear. I hate ASUS. I bought their dainty tablet and they flicked me aside when it broke. I will never, never, never buy another ASUS product. Ever.

5 out of 5 eggsNice tablet for an affordable price

This review is from: ASUS ME181C-A1-WH Intel Atom Z3745 1GB Memory 16GB eMMC 8.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Crisp 8 inch screen, solid construction, clean and easy to use interface, quick processor, and multiple user account support.

Cons: Some apps fail to launch or quit unexpectedly (most likely software issues), some slight lag when switching user accounts and reloading the home screen.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a nice affordable compact Android tablet with solid construction, decent speed, a crisp 8" screen, multiple user support, and an easy to use interface.

** There is one issue I'd like to clear up though. Some reviewers said the front facing camera is not 5MP. It actually is, you just have to go into the camera settings while turbo mode is turned off and set the resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent BUY

This review is from: ASUS ME181C-A1-WH Intel Atom Z3745 1GB Memory 16GB eMMC 8.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Great price, screen, stereo speakers updated processor and 16 GB storage. I've installed the Samsung SDXC 64GB , class 10 card. This tablet is almost a laptop; I have over 120 apps, about 50 full CD's and two movies installed. And I've paired it with Bluetooth keyboard that was laying around. The one thing I did is bought a Very good set of ear buds. My laptop hasn't left the house sense the week after I bought this tablet. OH, and the ASUS included software is a step above most bloatware included with Samsung hardware.

Cons: I really would like it if the speakers were separated, too and bottom

Other Thoughts: I really don't understand why ASUS isn't getting more press. And with the new Atom 3745 processor, this tablet is better than some at twice the price point.
I love mine so much, I almost didn't get the Asus because of the video res (1200X800). But glad I did, it looks WAY better than the specs would leave one to believe. Actually like it so much I picked the MeMo pad 8 (me181) as well. I've got the Samsung micro SDXC 64GB installed in both. Into which I've loaded 120 apps, 2 movies and about 50 CD's. Now my son has stolen the me176, I don't think that's comming back anytime soon.
I simply won't leave the house without mine. And they seem more rugged than I thought too. The ME176 has been dropped three times, ( once by me); and it still doesn't even have a scratch on it. My son dropped it about three feet onto a hardwood floor; I think he just starred at it for like 45 seconds. Picked it up and all he said was WOW!

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the buck winner

This review is from: ASUS ME181C-A1-WH Intel Atom Z3745 1GB Memory 16GB eMMC 8.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Smooth, responsive performance with 4.4.2 KitKat, fast app loading, nice screen, lightweight, micro SD expansion, loud speaker

Cons: Camera could be better (no flash, front camera low res)

Other Thoughts: I picked this up at just the right time, on sale and with additional promo, for $145 and at that price I think it's virtually impossible to beat. I was prepared to pay $199 for it before checking NewEgg and at that price I still think it's a great choice. The screen is very nice, plenty bright and sharp for any gaming or media and great for reading books. Even while loading it up with apps (30 downloading in queue) it showed no lag, and on my home WiFi pages load very fast and PlayStore apps download quickly. I've seen many reviews write this off as a budget tablet, but it's as smooth and fast as some tablets I've seen for nearly twice the price based only on specs that don't give the more pricey tablets that much of an edge over this. Love the micro SD option, and for having one speaker across the back, sound is plenty loud enough for using without earbuds. The camera isn't the best I've seen but for taking casual pics it's decent. A very solid choice overall.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: ASUS ME181C-A1-WH Intel Atom Z3745 1GB Memory 16GB eMMC 8.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Great design, feels great in my hands, very natural. The speaker hole in ample. Lightweight.

Cons: I purchased the tablet because of the price and the performance specs, but above all, I purchased it to play Real Racing 3 and Assassins Creed Pirates. I installed RR3, the game runs sloppy at best, it constantly crashes back to the desktop, does not retain progress, is not very laggy in graphics, but that's if you get to start the race because it crashes every 5 mins.
I installed Assassins Creed Pirates, the game wont even start. My brother has an older model Samsung tab 3 lite, 2 years old and runs BOTH games with no problems whatsoever. Given the performance is slower on the samsung, and also that the samsung is 2 years old and runs like a champ. I am fed up with the constant crashes and not being able to run the applications I want.
If you are looking for a tablet to run games, this one is NOT it.
I am systems engineer and know perfectly well what I am doing with electronics. I installed all updates of all operating system and games and NOTHING. Restored tablet to factory defaults then installed OS updates then the games, NO change. This thing is bogus.

Other Thoughts: I have filed for an RMA and I am returning this item; and I will pay up for a Samsung which happens to be on sale for $50 less than before.
If you are looking for a starter tablet the ASUS is good, but if you are going to demand performance and stability go with something else.
