Pros: Beautiful screen. Keyboard dock is awesome and totally one of a kind. Feels like a laptop when you've got it docked. With the dock the batter lasts forever.
Cons: Everything else. I really wanted to love this thing. I really did. But apparently Asus has installed a terrible emmc (flash memory) chip in the device. As such, ANY I/O on the device makes it absolutely painful to use. Don't even think about doing anything while apps are installing, don't even think about installing multiple apps at a time. It is a shame. This could have been perfect.
I usually take negative reviews with a grain of salt. But heed my advice. Do NOT buy this device.
Other Thoughts: I bought this used from Newegg, then bought a new keyboard dock, a case, etc. I used it for less than a month. All said I spent about 450 dollars on it.
I sold the whole package on an auction site for 270 plus shipping. Then I bought a Nexus 10 refurbished from another vendor. 32gb for 400 bucks. I added a 50 dollar logitec bluetooth keyboard (specific for android). I have never looked back. I should have gone with my gut and bought the nexus from the start.
Do yourself a favor and buy a nexus 10 if you're shopping for a tablet. It really is the best that is out there for android. Don't bother with this piece of garbage. It just isn't worth it.
ps... I'm an uber geek... not a newbie user. I'm a huge android fan. I had a Touchpad (running android) and I own a Galaxy Nexus as well as (now) a Nexus 10
Pros: Great screen
Keyboard dock is outstanding.
SD card, USB, hdmi
Cons: Tablet performance is pitiful due to poor hardware decisions by ASUS. Google search "tf700 nand" and you can read all about the I/O bottleneck that kills an otherwise marvelous device. It is a shame. Don't expect to be able to use the tablet if apps are downloading. You MUST root this device to make the browser usable (search for browser2ram)
I really want to love this thing. I want it to be better than an iPad... But it just isn't. I'm almost sure I'm going to sell this, take a loss, and buy a Note 10 or Nexus 10
Other Thoughts: I have no idea what Asus was thinking.not is a huge shame. This device could have been THE tablet but the I/O bottleneck destroys it. Because it is a hardware issue it will not be fixed on this device. Save your time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
