1 out of 5 eggsI am a huge ASUS fan but this is very disappointing

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

Pros: Size, screen clarity

Cons: Battery life, speed, heat

Other Thoughts: I have been purchasing ASUS products for 15+ years starting with motherboards. I have always had a high opinion of their quality and function until now. The memo 7 is very disappointing. I can get about 2 hours off a fully charged battery, the tablet heats up so much that it's hard to hold. the tablet is very sluggish and slow taking a long time to load apps. for it's specs it should be taking a quarter of the time. screen cracked while it was in my cargo pocket, it wasn't dropped, or impacted. I hate apple with a passion, but i think i'd take an apple product over this one. maybe samsung would be better. I own a desktop I built with an ASUS mother board in it, I have a ASUS ROG laptop, my wife has an ASUS laptop for school. Very happy with and satisfied with all of these products they are living up to what I expect from ASUS. This tablet is what I would expect from Coby. If this is how ASUS is making tablets I won't ever buy another ASUS tablet.

(Note... as of the time of writing this the tablet has stopped working. I should have sent it back on day 1, but I really wanted to give it a chance to prove it's self. It is now past warrantee so my only recourse is to avoid supporting such products from ASUS in the future.)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Thomas,

I apologize if you were disappointed with the Memo Pad. The issues you had with the tablet are isolated cases that can easily be resolved by doing a firmware update and doing a battery calibration in order to prolong the charge life of the battery. ASUS doesn't warranty cracked screen. If you want the damaged screen be replaced out of warranty and you need further assistance sending it in for service, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N150602739 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

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

Pros: Light weight,nice screen,fast processor.easy to handle,control placement good,

Cons: auto complete is frustrating causing me to make several errors while registering several apps that are still causing problems.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a Lenovo tablet whose touch screen quit working. It will fill the need and be a definite upgrade at the same time.

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for the positive comment. I certainly understand your concern regarding the battery discharging fast. In order to improve or prolong the battery charged time, please drain it completely then charge it fully without using the system. Once fully-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, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N150313977 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

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 Tablet Android 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 Tablet Android 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.

2 out of 5 eggsSkip this tablet.

This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-BK Intel Atom Z3745 1GB DDR3L Memory 16GB Flash 7.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 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.

Manufacturer Response:

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 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 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 Tablet Android 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:

Dear Sawyer D,

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 Tablet Android 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.
