5.0 out of 5 stars And I'll explain why.., 2 Mar. 2014
What we have here (and I own one by the way) is the most finished Win8.1 8inch device on the market. On paper, a number the specs lag the competition (1080p, 32GB, no HDMI) but the combination of solid hardware, a pen for note taking, cheap price, full-desktop features, free Office licence, great sound and lack of gimmicks results in a device that delivers what it sets out to do and most owners will agree with me. Take 1080 for example. No one wants to hear that they don't need it on an 8inch device but the evidence points to a worse experience cost/tech vs batterylife/desktop usability on a tablet. If you only use metro apps you probably don't need alot of storage but just in case Asus include a microsd. You may hardly use hdmi on a tablet but just in case, have miracast. All of the choices feel balanced and deliberate and I dont hate Asus for making them. I've had my tablet for a week now and I am really sold on it. It deserves to be a success and I hope you agree with me but more importantly buy one and enjoy a great experience too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap as chips, 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pro - light, cheap, small (the charger is bigger!), simple once set up.

Cons - there is a knack to setting it up, works as a LAN access point

Not tried the other settings like range extender etc..

4.0 out of 5 stars Chargers do fail - don't leave them plugged in all the time!, 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chargers do fail - don't leave them plugged in all the time! I repeated this bit because it's important. The chargers break before the brush itself. No harm having a spare brush-body but I don't want to make a habit of buying chargers (they are £24 on their own!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just works, 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fast, trouble-free. Good. I bought a smaller one because I tend to send everything over-air but it's handy to have a card. Just in case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really works on the Ativ S, 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't usually like Gel cases but this one works really well with the AtivS. The phone is so thin and easy to drop and this case with the grippy sides helps manage that while still allowing it in and out of your pockets easily. The only gripe would be the power button, like all the side buttons, is covered with a rubber bit rather than a cut-out. This makes it a bit stiff, if I'm honest. Otherwise the case is excellent and the clear/cloudy colour works well with the grey phone.

It does the trick but I found the hydro gel case cover below to be better for the Ativ which is very thin and easily dropped. This case is much smarter, fits well and is just what you need.

Lovely pictures.
I have done loads of bike travel and this book does do it justice (prep, expectations, planning, bike choice etc)

My friend is very happy with this gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased - great value and works very well., 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use it with [Huawei E3256 USB Mobile Broadband Modem] on the Three network. When I plugged in the dongle the router did not recognise it.

To get it to recognise the dongle I when to the TP website and downloaded the latest firmware which I installed using a PC and the included Ethernet cable. Very simple and installation takes less than 1 minute.

The router now recognises the dongle and had performed flawlessly. It is very fast - I had 10Mbs showing on 3G using Three network. I have a MIFI dongle on Three and in the same location I get 25% faster speeds, more robust signal/responsiveness, no drop-outs, no high-pitched charging noise that the MIFI gives off when plugged in.

Pros - good range. quick to re-establish connection if either router or dongle is unplugged. Good menus. Lots of security and other settings on offer. Looks good on the window sill.

Cons - none really. The router is not large by any stretch but I think they could have made it even smaller because it feels quite hollow (but not flimsy).
