1 out of 5 eggsBig problems

Pros: Great form factor at a great price.
Feels nice and zippy (compared to my original transformer)

Cons: Battery won't charge to 100%.
Apps in background are aggressively closed making switching between apps a tiresome affair.

Other Thoughts: I was a extremely happy owner of the original transformer, so I love the form factor. I also like Asus as I have personally owned a few of their routers as well as purchasing their laptops for my office. The tf103 is a budget tablet so I expected it to feel cheaper but was pleasantly surprised by it. My initial enthusiasm was dampened by a couple of show stopper problems.

First, the battery. Like a couple of other reviewers mentioned, the tablet stopped charging to 100%. The percentage it charges to is affected by how low I run the battery. The lower it goes, the less high it will charge. Right now it won't charge above 40%. This is what the indicator says, I doubt this is accurate.

I sent it to Asus for repair. They wanted me to pay for shipping on a defective tablet that was a month old, but I pressed them and eventually they gave me a shipping label. For some reason it took over a week to email me the shipping label. To be fair the cs reps were helpful and understanding, but the process is slow and painful. I received the tablet back after a week or so and the battery had been replaced. It was charged to 99% out of the box but immediately started exhibiting the same behavior. So it is going back again, though this time they volunteered to pay shipping. It still took a full week to email the shipping label.

Others have mentioned this battery problem so I don't think it's isolated like the Asus rep says in response to one of the earlier reviews.

The second issue is that apps in the background seem to be closed aggressively. This causes apps to restart completely even if they are just swapped into the background for a moment. This was most annoying with my Sonos music app and my password manager. Every time I went back to one of these apps it would restart. For the Sonos app this would cause an irritating wait before I could control my music. With the password app it meant I would have to re-enter the master password.

All of this has been ongoing for over two months. Perhaps I'll update the review when I get it back for the second time, but at this point I'm totally fed up and I can't believe how much time I've wasted on this. Unfortunately I wish I'd never bought it, which is a real shame as nothing beats the transformer form factor. I don't have much faith these problems will he resolved and I didn't even bother raising the app closing problem with tech support. Another reviewer here mentions the problem so it is also not isolated. After this I'm giving up, it's just not worth the effort and I'm not sure I'll ever trust the thing.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for the positive comment. I certainly understand your concern regarding the battery not charging fully. If the problem persists when you receive it back from service, please drain it completely then charge it fully without using the system. Once full-charged, please use the system, without the AC adapter connected, and drain it completely. Please repeat the charging process thereafter. Also, please verify if the unit is running with the most current system update and third-party applications being installed are fully- Android compliant. If you need further assistance regarding the warranty service on the product, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N141156717 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Improvements over over TF101, power/sleep moved where not accidentally bumped, charge in now USB, and touch keyboard much improved. Android also appears not locked to 4.4.2 KitKat (as shipped). Recovery/migration much improved.

Cons: No HDMI port, no battery in keyboard, or SD card support. Battery indication is erroneous full charge (over night) shows 64%, or occasionally 75%. Facebook, Browser, Email and games abruptly "close". Browser no longer saves/stores IDs or Passwords, nor does it ask to save... very frustrating. I have been in contact ASUS Support. Only suggested "Factory Reset", which after several hours of rebuilding, problems not corrected. Waiting for next response. Per the Net, Battery status can be corrected by resetting battery in ROM while fully charged.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsTablet is outstanding

Pros: Tablet works well in all cdatagories. After downloading the 13 chapter owners manual from Asus Website it became very apparent how powerful this tablet is. My wife is the primary user and she can access gmail and Time Warner Email at the touch of 1 finger. I bought 65 gb Mini SDcard to compliment the tablet and it is great for her HD movies, with headphones and earbuds the sound is very good. The speaker has enough volume to be used in a noisy enviroment without any problems. The battery life after a full charge appears to be at 8 to 9 hours before battery low warning. All in all I give it 5 eggs with Kudos to Newegg for quick shipping and nice safe packing. I have Shoprunner account and the 2 day free shipping to Maui is a real help to us so far away.

Cons: No cons after downloading full owners manual from Asus website, the quick start guide that ships with the tablet is basically no help whatsoever so you really need the complete 13 chapter manual to achieve full understanding and usage of the tablet. Weight is a little heavy with keyboard attached but when the tablet is used standalone the weight is no problem at all.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Tablet, But

Pros: The tablet is fairly solid, good components, plays games and movies reasonably well.

Cons: I have as of late encountered battery issues, in addition to a strange "bug" that seems to occur only when connected to the Keyboard. The battery issues are, it refuses to charge beyond 63%, I've looked it up online and have noted that it is not a rare orccurance, I was able to charge it fully after entering recovery mode and factory resetting the tablet that way. I haven't been able to resolve the other issue, which, to describe it simply, is a "split screen problem" before everyone tries to execute me I am aware of the feature, however in my case the right half of the screen displays on the left, and vice versa, and in an ever so lovely shade of pink... Well my daughter likes it anyway... it can be resolved by simply putting the tablet to sleep, then "waking" it again, but it simply re-occurs a few minutes later. Not so much "cons" as it would be bugs I guess, but that's subject to interpretation.

Other Thoughts: On the whole the tablet is great, and I do love it, the bugs are just that, and I've noted that the battery issues only started after upgrading to KitKat, so it's possible it's simply a software issue. I would hesitate recommend it to anyone, simply because of the battery issues, and the fact that they don't seem to be rare.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

It's great to know that the whole tablet is great and you do love it besides the minor bug you have resolved regarding the battery charging issue, which is an isolated case. Should you need further technical assistance regarding the Transformer Book, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N141022068 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS for a school girl

Pros: Great tablet with keyboard for our grandchild. We did a lot of looking and she loves it. Newegg had best price and shipment was fast and arrived in perfect condition. Light weight with a touch screen which kids seem to prefer but also has the attachable keyboard for school papers, etc. She carries a baritone with her school stuff so light weight was important. She is still testing it out so this is an early opinion but so far she is very pleased.

Cons: Be very careful using the password protection feature called a pattern password. She used this and could not get the computer to recognize the identical pattern. ASUS was a big help in resolving the problem so she is happy.
