5.0 out of 5 stars
Asus eeepad, 21 July 2011
I have spent the past month/two months looking around for a tablet. I needed something that was light with a decent screen that I would be able to type on for when I start uni in September. I decided straight away that I wasnt interested in an ipad (just personal preference) and I was looking at ones that have come from China , but some of them had bad reviews which put me off, I then decided to look at what is available on the high street and from then cut the list down by price which left me with two. This one and the Acer android tablet.
I began looking at reviews of these two on youtube,which is very helpful as most of the videos on there are just ordinary people trying to help people like me who cant make up their mind.Inthe end I bought this from comet, instead of Amazon.
I am really happy with this tablet , the shape and design of it is really good ,its very sleek and light which is handy if you like reading books or typing. The screen is also very clear and nice to watch films etc on.
The onscreen keyboard works well and once you get the hang of typing on it , its really very good.
The added bonus of having a keyboard dock is very appealing , and adds another 8 hours or so battery life, I decided against the keyboard because I have a laptop but from what I've seen it works very well and gives you usb ports.
Also this tablet runs on Android 3.1 now (Once you update)
I can only see three downsides with this tablet ;
-The lack of USB ports on the tablet, this would have been handy if there were one , but it isnt the end of the world not having one ,microsd/ my cloud will help if you need it.
-The speakers are okay , but can be quite quiet if you are in a crowded room, earphones work well with it though
-There is no led light on the back with the camera ,isnt actually a problem just it would of been nice to have one.
Even with these MINOR faults I have still given it 5 stars because the good outweighs the bad. I love this tablet and I am very happy with it and I am glad that I picked this tablet above anything else.
