ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T-B1-GR NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.60GHz 10.1
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Screen resolution

Cons: Lots of problems
Very expensive for a product with a plethora of issues

Other Thoughts: I'm so disappointed with this product. I bought the tablet together with the dock, paying a total of $550. Here are the problems I have:
• The tablet restarts randomly out of the blue (no matter if I’m using it or if it’s on standby) and crashes. I did a couple of factory resets but the problems were not solved. Lately the random restarts and crashes became so frequent that I decided to give up on using it
• The internet browsing is very slow and kind a jerky/choppy
• GPS sucks! Really, it sucks big time! Not reliable at all! It used to take normally more than 10 min (even 15-20 min) to lock on GPS satellites, even outdoor and standing. Then, out of the blue, it loses the signal.
• Very picky charger (gosh, now I hate the fact that I didn't get a tablet with a standard microUSB connector). The USB charging (from the PC) it didn’t always work initially and now it doesn't work at all. Then again, the car charging was working initially, and then it didn't work at all. Eventually I noticed that even with the original charger the keyboard doesn’t want to charge at all sometimes. That's irking me a lot!
I even bought a brand new cable and the tablet still doesn’t charge at all from time to time.
Then there is a quality issue with the USB plug: the plug’s jacket cover came out completely of the metallic part (and this only after 6 month of use, with no more than 4-5/months). Now, although I push the jacket back, it keeps coming out time every time I pull the connector out from the adapter or PC's USB port. Anyhow, I ordered a replacement cable from DX and I hope will solve the problem.
• As well, the battery charging status (the system one or the one showed by different apps/widgets) is not reliable at all – it stays at 100% for a long time, then is starts going down to 40-50% very fast, an then the tablet shuts down and need a full recharge.
• The keyboard dock, although appeared to work initially, turned out eventually to be affected by the fast battery drain problem; after about 7 months stopped completely to charge and work and I ended up in the garbage.  
Well, this is my fourth ASUS product with a lot of issues. Firstly it was a WiFi USB stick, secondly I had major problems with a motherboard, then with a graphic card (plus it took ASUS more than 1 month to send me back the repaired card) and now this tablet. Well, wrapping it up, I'm pretty sure: NO MORE ASUS for me from now on (and not only because what happen to me, but as well because I read so many bad reviews about the Asus' quality issues and its bad support; reading the bad reviews about the quality issues and service problems for the TF701t make me think that ASUS it’s going somehow downhill).
Another consequence of what I’ve been through is that I will never ever buy tablets or smartphones with proprietary connectors. So all the
