Pros: Works great as an extension; provides USB 3.0 when available but no slow-down when connecting to earlier versions.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Not sure why the other reviewer found this product a bad deal. I have bought two of them so far, and have had zero problems with either.
Just bought a third one, to act as an extension for recharging my tablet. I have to use the cord the manufacturer provided, which only has a 3' reach. I prefer to use the provided transformer, which is much better than the slow, slow trickle through my PC.
Pros: Good sound quality, speedy CPU, (mostly) user friendly interface. Caught it during a sale Newegg had going on and got it well reduced in price.
Cons: Its touch sense is a little quirky, sometimes not recognizing what I want to accomplish.
The USB Micro Port became loose only after a few months of normal use, which periodically prevents the tablet from recharging or talking to my PC when plugged in.
Other Thoughts: Contacted ASUS support about the micro port. They had me send it to one of their service locations (the nearest is about 750 miles away). I had to pay for shipping it, which didn't sit well with me.
When I got it back only 3 business days later, the micro port was just as loose as when I sent it to them, but zero description was supplied on what was done to fix it. As far as I could tell, the service location had done nothing with it, except to plug it in and see if it took a charge, then threw everything into a box and shipped it back to me.
I called ASUS support right away and was told the micro port and power/connection cord had been replaced. I told the service rep that the port was still loose, and was told essentially, "Live with it."
I guess I'll have to do just that, because the pluses of the tablet far outweigh its minuses. However, eventually it will fail again, probably after the warranty is up. Then I'll be stuck with a pricey paperweight.
I will definitely NOT buy another tablet from ASUS, because their service is terrible.
Pros: Works very well and handles the loads I need when I'm hyperthreading or playing online games.
Cons: None I'm aware of so far.
Other Thoughts: Overpriced at NE. Consider looking around -- you can find the same CPU for $20-40 cheaper at a national brick & mortar chain.READ FULL REVIEW
