This review is from: ASUS TF700T-DOCK-GR Tablet Docking Station - Gray
Pros: Made to fit perfectly with the ASUS Transformer tablet. If you have that, and you want a keyboard, plus other options for expansion, this is the way to go. Gets you a SD card slot, USB port, keyboard, and extended battery life. Adjustment of screen angle keeps in place well, and the position is rigid.
Cons: The only con is not directly related to this device, but some Android programs are specifically made to not have a widescreen format available (for example, Yahoo fantasy sports apps, Temple Run). For these, and for games that are dependent on the device being tilted (once again, Temple Run), you will need to detach the tablet and use it as a tablet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This monitor has a good picture, good color, and by brand name, should be reliable.
Cons: There is only a VGA port available on this, making it unusable with modern PCs without an adapter. We luckily had one around the house - while it is noted in the specs, I didn't bother looking, because there really shouldn't be any reason that a modern monitor made by a reputable manufacturer does not have a DVI or HDMI input. On top of that, there is a difference between backlighting zones, as in, one half of the monitor is brighter than the other half.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a great tablet. Resolution is almost as good as the new iPads (1920x1200, vs the 2048x1536), with a much better aspect ratio (16:10 compared to 4:3). Has Gorilla glass, so bonus points for better durability (I haven't dropped this yet - but it's comforting to know that it might survive one). Runs fast, and the resolution of the screen is absolutely breathtaking (this is better resolution than a standard HDTV, all on a 10.1" screen). Camera takes nice pictures, and the flash really works well.
Firmware upgrade is available to Android Jelly Bean, and easily upgraded right out of the box. (Well, that's a half truth. I needed to charge the battery before it would let me upgrade. But that's just so it doesn't run out of juice while updating it)
Cons: No connectivity other than WiFi. Having the option to connect via a wireless provider would be a bonus (you can get around this, of course, by tethering your phone to allow data access through it).
Battery life is advertised as ten hours, but you don't really get that much actual screen time.
Plug location on the bottom, while necessary to allow for the docking station, is a horribly inconvenient place to have a plug (so it's not really something that's easy to work with while it's plugged in).
Other Thoughts: If you're looking to spend the money to get a nice tablet, you won't get a finer all around tablet than this.READ FULL REVIEW
