Pros: I love this tablet. It is very functional and I have yet to really use it to its potential

Cons: Power cord can fail easily, buy an extra.

Overall Review: This tablet has a keyboard that can be purchased separately and I like using a keyboard, it mates up nicely and extends the battery life. Well worth the additional purchase.

Pros: I had my first Prime for almost two years. It was as sweet as butter! I never had a single issue with it. It's like grease lightning! The camera rocks! The dock works well and extends the battery life.

Cons: It is really hard for me to think of a con. I know a lot of people complained about signal strength in the Wi-Fi, and while my signal want necessarily as good as some of my other hardware it wasn't really that bad. The only real con is that when it gets dropped it breaks.

Cheers Asus eeePad team 10/13/2012 9:02:52 AM

Pros: Very thin, even compared to late 2012 model tablets. I am surprised they did not keep this up with the TF300 and 700. WHY?! Not to mention this thing is aluminum and none of the other models are. Granted, this model supposedly had worse wifi, bluetooth, and gps performance because of the aluminum -- and they COULD be right, under certain circumstances -- however, I have not experienced those problems yet and I have lived a normal life for the last 7 months since receiving it (in and around the house, work, in my car, in bed, out at places, hotels, vacation, etc...).

...And then of course there are the obvious perks; Nvidia's Tegra 3 IS really fast and a very nice hybrid CPU/GPU.

The super IPS+ screen is quite nice. It won't help a whole lot in direct sunlight, but if you are in the mood for a bright and vivid display (Movies? Games? Pictures? Web Browsing? Everything?) the feature is nice.

As I have mentioned, I have owned this thing for a few months and something that should be mentioned as a pro, considering it credits the manufacturer, is the fact that Asus has been pretty timely with their updates and firmware. They resolved a lot of problems within the first couple of months it was out and they updated the Android system to ICS and beyond very quickly. We are all running 4.1 now and that is great. Bugs don't last very long once found and reported.

The onboard storage space is more than suitable for what your average user would need. It could hold hundreds of e-books, thousands of songs, and probably a large volume of movies, and other media related files, and quite likely have extra space. I am unsure of why anyone would want their tablet to hold their entire entertainment collection's worth of media, but if they did, they also have a microSD slot that CAN and DOES recognize 128GB SD cards. Fantastic.

I bought the dock for this thing about a month and a half ago and have to mention that the dock is also a very nice accessory to have for this. The dock features a full QWERTY keyboard, fairly decent touchpad, a (REALISTIC) 3-4 hour increase in usable battery life, USB support, full-sized SD card slot, and material/color/sturdiness identical to the construction of the tablet itself.

I think I can credit this last thing mostly to the Tegra series processor; This device does not heat up very much or change at all in performance when under stress (Gaming, use for a long time, etc...), which is really nice because it sucks to be holding a very warm tablet while 5-minutes-deep into a video game. Seriously.

Cons: While this is not necessarily something that spoils all the fun, one of the bigget let-downs here was some of the out-of-box applications on the system. I didn't find things like SuperNote or Asus Web Storage/Cloud to bery useful. I use SuperNote, but it is mostly because it is somewhat handy and I have not found a better solution yet... But this is Android. Do you know how many better, free solutions there are on the market?

The speaker(s) on the device are actually decent in terms of quality of sound that is being projected, but they are very quiet when there is activity going on in the room you are in. Utilizing headphones is fine and preferred for me, but still, the speakers are just not as awesome as everything else.

The price is a bit steep, but on the bright side, if you take care of the device and don't mistreat it in any way, this thing will last a good while looking and performing awesome.

Lastly, the resolution and detail on the screen is starting to pale in comparison to newer models, but that is really only something you notice if you start doing the "Let's compare your's to mine..." thing, the screen is still really nice and you won't at all be disappointed by it. I promise.

Overall Review: I would say that this tablet is still probably worth a good penny as of October, 2012. I imagine that it has a good year or just under left in active popularity. After that, updates will be fewer, much better stuff will have come out or be coming out. I wouldn't pay 300+ for this past January.

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize for the issues you have encountered with your Transformer Prime. What type of displays issues were you experiencing? Did it appear right out of the box or did it gradually happen? I am sorry you had to end up returning it. I am glad though, that Newegg was able to take back the unit for you. If you get the replacement unit, please tell us how you like it.

If you have any issues in the future, please feel free to e-mail me. I can be reached at cl-tien@asus.com. I'll be happy to answer any questions or address any issues you might have.

Best Regards,

Tien

Asus Transformer prime and newegg service 7/1/2012 10:11:18 AM

Comments: I had originally requested a replacement due to the 'cons' above. I quickly changed that to a 'full refund' by calling the customer service. It took Newegg about 1 week (when it said 3-4 days on the invoice) to 'test' the unit before they can issue a refund (understandable).

After testing was done, Newegg said that nothing was wrong and will send back the same unit. If I still need a replacement, I need to contact ASUS.

When I called Newegg to explain that I had requested a 'full refund', the lady told me that this product is not refundable, and that it was clearly stated on the product page. I was shocked and was not aware of such policy for this product. After about 5 minutes, she finally admitted that it was actually fully refundable and processed the refund.

Overall, I'm very displeased with this purchase and the newegg customer service. I wasted several hours just trying to get the refund processed correctly.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize for the various issues you encountered with the Transformer Prime.

The official specs on the Prime states that the GPS will not work without a wi-fi signal, or with the GPS dongle. It might be tough to use the tablet with the dongle at first, but that is the only way to get GPS reception with the Prime. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you are experiencing a weak w-fi signal, there is a fix for it if you send it in for service. The fix has been proven to increase wi-fi performance. Brand new tablets carry a full one year warranty, and refurbished units carry a 90 day warranty, so either way, you are definitely covered.

I know you have since returned the tablet, and I am glad you were able to finally sort everything out with Newegg. For future reference, if you have any questions, concerns, or issues with an Asus product, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at cl-tien@asus.com. I'll be happy to address and questions or concerns that you might have.

Best Regards,

Tien

Best tablet on the market 6/21/2012 10:34:44 AM

Pros: Awesome screen resolution, quad-core nVidia w/ single core for power saving. Versatility of adding a keyboard or just using a leather or silicone case (both bought seperately). Comes with like 8GB of web storage with ASUS cloud or just use Google docs which I think is around 6GB+ Awesome apps like Netflix, Vulkano, Splashtop, Verizon FiOS, Google Docs,

Cons: GPS dongle are u serious? Did someone actually buy this to install in their car and use solely as a GPS guide and not expect to need an Internet connection?

Did you think you could download the the entire U.S. Google maps onto your tablet and drive around with it like it's a Magellan?

HD apps and games usually cost $1 - $2 more than your use to paying on your phone and sometimes need to buy your favorite game again to get the HD version. Yes, it makes a difference.

Overall Review: Beats out Apple with just the single core engaged and the quad-core literally chews them up and spits out the core.

The versatility and expandability is unmatched. My optimal travel setup includes a leather folding case, an external battery booster 5500mAH, with a silicone blue tooth keyboard. All purchased on Newegg!
