I got this with the keyboard dock and now I hardly ever touch my laptop. I have alot of school papers to write and this is much lighter than my 15 inch, and funner to use, and any less weight I have to carry around is a plus. The only thing I like better in the I pad is that it is much more comfortable in your hand than this Asus. Other than that, this is $150 dollars cheaper and they are just as good as each other in all other aspects.

This is an excellent device, imho, ties with I-pad
Best Android Tablet available today
Not only is the idea (keyboard dock) a great idea for people looking to replace/buy a netbook. But for the ability to do all of this and still be cheaper than wifi only versions of other tablets is insane. Overall the tablet has become even better now that Google released Honeycomb 3.1 for the Transformer. You will not regret this purchase.
This is my second tablet, the first one being the Viewsonic gTablet...I won't make any comparisons. I use my Asus TF everyday...I read comic books using an app found on the marketplace called Perfect Viewer, I read books on the stock reader, check email, read my favorite news feeds using an app called Pulse, listen to music on Pandora radio, browse the internet, play some ok games once and a while and use the GPS. I do see some light bleed when the screen is on a dark/black page. I think the usb cable which is also used for charging is way to short. You will find Honeycomb is a little glitchie yet but over all this tablet was well worth the money and would recommend it to everyone over any android tablet currently available. I haven't purchased the keyboard yet and am not in any big hurry to do so...This as a tablet only suits me just fine.
For the price it is really great.
I bought this because I needed something I could put ebooks on and do homework on. It hooked up to wifi and soon as i turned it on. i updated the software and was instantly downloading apps in the android market. its a nice size screen made watching movies and shows so easy and enjoyable. You can not use skype or oovoo to video chat. only fring, and not too many have fring. but skype is going to update their software so that you can. also you can not get on netflix yet. the touch screen is really good. I had the occasion where my 2 year old son would blow on it and he manage to open an app. you can play games, get on facebook, check your emails. messengeres like yahoo, aim, gmail, all work. the camera quality i find good. better than a cellphone. it does everything a laptop can do. I will suggest getting the docking station if you are not use to typing long papers on the touch screen. this tablet is also great for twitter. My son who is 2 can use it with easy. So its recommend for all ages in my opinion.
My wife wanted a tab for her birthday, I of course wanted to make her happy but having so many choices in the tab market it was really hard for me to make up my mind. I then started my research, after many days of research and past my wifes bday I was sold on the IPAD. Nothing seem to be as comparable as the IPAD specially for the solid good price of $499.00 but the IPAD just didnt do it for me. Mty wife and I are solely lovers of the android market and are discuss by apple and their followers, just couldnt find the right device. Then we heard about the transform and onece more I started my research. I encourage you dig in and do your reseach, once you do that I can guarantee that you will find out that this is probable the best tab and the best price. ASUS is a great and quickly growing company that has promess to out sold every company in tablets but apple and they are doing it. BEST TAB EVER!!!
The Transformer has met all my expectations. I initially bought a Xoom hindered by a VZW plan, but promptly returned it when word of the wifi version was coming. Well, before that was released, Asus announced that they were releasing the Transformer for $399 so I ended up waiting for it and am I ever glad I did. Performance-wise, they are nearly identical (as well they should be, sharing all the same components and all). One thing the Xoom has that I don't think the Transformer does is a barometer. Honestly, I found absolutely no use for it but to raise the price anyways. One thing I noticed immediately was how far superior the Transformer screen is as compared to the Xoom. The IPS screen really shines on the Transformer. If you're trying to decide which to get, don't hesitate. Go for the Transformer. You will not be sorry!
Transform your tablet experience
The pricing on the product was perfect and on point. I got the actual tablet paired with the keyboard dock and it makes for a good combination. At a price point of $400 and with specs that matched up with other tablets in the higher price range ($600-$800), this one was definitely a good deal. The tablet itself is a great idea, looks great, and feels pretty good. There were a few quality control issues such as a gap between the screen and the bezel on the side of the screen, VERY MINOR light bleed (which is a problem on most screens), one spec of dust under the rear camera lens, and a bit of a creak when holding it until the plastic settles right. Alongside that, the power button could be a bit easier to push and it could have come with a longer charging cable. Overall, it was a great piece of hardware with an amazing display screen, a lot of processing power, decent speakers, responsive touch screen, great software, and a stylish look with a good gripping back. It is a good replacement for a laptop IF you are looking for something super portable, with great battery life, and mostly use your laptop for watching movies, browsing the internet, doing some word processing, and playing games. As far as the Android Honeycomb software, clearly anyone familiar with it knows that there are still bugs that need to be worked out, but that is consistent with every Android powered tablet, and not just this one in particular. Once upgrades come, it will work even more flawlessly. I would recommend this product to others.
Best tablet for the price
I have been waiting for a tablet like this one for a long long time. When I pad was released I knew that it is expensive for the price. I didnt expect a tablet this good would come from asus. They showed that a god tablet can be made for $400 Good things. price Runs flash Easy to write applications for I PS screen Many more Good battery life Bad thing Browser not very stable but it is useable High def youtube videos don't play that well No good case for the tablet.
Good tablet, but the one I got was defective.
I was really happy to get this tablet from Walmart being that the tablet was sold out everywhere. It is a good value tablet, and for $400 its great. Many people say that the build quality is bad, however, while there is plastic on the back, I felt that the tablet was built relatively well. Problems for me came when one of the pixels in the middle of the screen went dead, so I was forced to return the tablet after two days. I sent an email and phone call to Asus for help, and there was answer back. I read that Asus customer service is horrible, so good luck if you are trying to reach them. All in all, its a great tablet, if you do find one that is working well.
No Netflix makes me wonder, otherwise great
Netflix is probably the largest streaming medium next to Youtube, and it's absent/entirely unavailable on this device. Typing with auto spell/correct options enabled is sluggish, with major delays as you type as it attempts to suggest words. I like the feature, so turning it off would be detrimental, it really just needs to be optimized better or disabled by default if they can't get it working more efficiently. Size and screen quality are great. Many good apps on the android store for video playback, etc. Most everything I could think to need is available free. Definitely get an adroid app task killer to release and close applications running in the background. So many apps don't close even when you tell them to. This is a flaw I can live with, but IMHO after a lifetime using windows and mac OS platforms, this seems like a major oversight and flagrant design flaw. I mean, if you want something to close it should close. End of story! Just about replaces a laptop. First android device I've owned, and so far I'm happy. Missing netflix does cast some doubt as to the future of honeycomb (android 3) and how many other malfunctioning (Facebook) or missing apps will never make it to market.
