This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Decent features at a very good price

Cons: Horrible battery life. Loses charge very quickly even it idle. Dropped to 46% from 100% overnight while idle. ASUS support solution is to send it in.

Other Thoughts: Gave up on this model after three replacements. ASUS is great value if you never have a problem, but good luck if you do.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 1 hour

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: It looked nice when it was working. Newegg is great about replacements.

Cons: Died after about an hour of use. I let it fully charge before turning it on, then powered the device on, logged in and began installed firmware updates. The first firmware update(over 100 MBs) installed fine. Then I installed the second firmware update(about 5 MBs). The device restarted as part of the firmware update, but never started back up. At the time the battery was at 100% and I still had it plugged into the AC adapter, so it wasn't a power issue. I tried everything I could think of as well as some suggestions from searching online. The backlight would turn on, but the device just displayed a black screen. Eventually after a day or so, the backlight wouldn't even light and nothing would display or light up if the power adapter was plugged in. It appears now that the device is totally without power and dead.

Other Thoughts: On the plus side, Newegg was great to work with and even pays return shipping on defective products like this. I should also mention that I spoke with ASUS, who was also willing to RMA the device for me, but I would have had to pay return shipping to ASUS, so I went with a replacement from Newegg instead.

At the moment, I can only give the product a 1 egg review as I was never really able to use it. I'll update this review as things progress.

3 out of 5 eggsAsus memo me76cx-a1-bk

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: I like how fast the processor is going on the Internet. easy to handle and dual cameras.

Cons: I bought this for my mother. She likes my 173cx model. So I bought are 176cd model because it was newer. But it does not receive all the emails, it only receives about less than half. I have to go on a regular computer to get the rest of her my emails. I bought this tablet because so I didn't have to go on a regular computer. I have a 173cx model and don't have problem. I thought that buying a newer model would be better not worse.

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Fast, nice specs.

Cons: Cannot update the firmware. This tablet is stuck on WW.124 firmware . Go through the system update to update it, and it says the tablet is up-to-date when the firmware available is WW.182+. Try to update the firmware manually and it still won't update. Zip files were placed in the correct directory. No system notification of update available pops up. Only other way of possibly updating this tablet is to root it which voids the warranty.

OTA updates should be seamless, but it is not the case here. Why do I care about upgrading the firmware? If you want to move your apps to sd card you'll have to use the 182 update.

As such, I can't make full use of what I paid for, and I'm very disappointed with this purchase. I don't recommend this unit at all.

5 out of 5 eggsLove ASUS

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 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 wouldn't mind if the speakers were separated; top and bottom. And the camera on the me181 is much better.

Other Thoughts: I really don't understand why ASUS isn't getting more press. Newegg has the ME176 for $119 and free shipping right now. 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!

4 out of 5 eggs(Almost) Best bang for my buck

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Good display, high quality, no pixels DOA
High-end CPU for the price, feel like I lucked out
Durable case and screen
Does everything I need, and more

Cons: I feel like for having a better CPU than most other tablets - of all sizes and costs - I've seen, it should have had an extra GB of ram. I can definitely see the situations where that is very much a restricting factor

Other Thoughts: Other than the RAM shortage - and even that can be ignored, to a degree - It's an excellent piece of technology.
9/10, would recommend to a friend

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Size. Specs. Price. The performance of the Intel chip is fantastic.

Cons: If you ever let the battery drain all the way, the tablet won't turn back one. This is my second MeMO tablet with this deficiency. I've tried every suggestion I have found, including removing the back to unplug the battery. Still won't turn back on. Very disappointed with my new paperweight.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Mike,

We appreciate your comment and I understand that your disappointed since the new MeMO pad won't even turn back on. What I can suggest is you need to charge first the battery fully before turning it back on. If it doesn't work please provide me information if your tablet will turn back on if the adapted is conneted. If you can please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and write down case # N141234309 in the subject line for your case reference.

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Cons: The tablet comes with mega bloatware and is slow

Other Thoughts: Buy a NExus

1 out of 5 eggsdon't do it!

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: Compact, bright screen, moderately fast processor.

Cons: Terrible battery life. One of the main reasons I purchased this was the micro SD slot. When I purchased this that feature was only on high end tablets. That being said, I have sent this into ASUS 3 times only to have it come back with the SD slot not functioning correctly. Yes I purchased 3 different cards to try. It will go back and forth saying card ready and 2 seconds it will say card disconnected. Binging and bonging the whole time. I gave up on ever having this work correctly, or having ASUS make it right.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this tablet until I could afford a transformer prime, like the one that my boss bought. Well I sure won't be buying another ASUS product period. Customer service people were nice but they didn't have compete repair staff to follow through.

1 out of 5 eggsNice for first two months

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen TabletAndroid 4.4 (KitKat)

Pros: When it works... battery life great, fast response with android keyboard and switching applications. Very convenient size with nice display coloring and detail.

Cons: worked great until one time I turned on tablet while it was charging. The android boot screen flashed then went off for good. Now, when I hold power button the screen will light for a few seconds then off. Does not boot anymore.

Other Thoughts: I am exploring my options with Newegg and Asus regarding replacing the unit. What is most distressing is I lost all the photos I had accumulated during the two months I used the tablet and they are not recoverable even though they were supposed to be saving on the SD card.
