5.0 out of 5 stars best windows tablet, 7 Dec. 2014
i have had this tablet since November 2013 and still use it to this day. Here are my thoughts:

I use it as my desktop machine, torrents, browsing, reading or even Dreamweaver to edit websites and no problems. Of course occasionally it slows down or fails to wake up and it just needs a reboot, this is normal on any windows based laptop or machines that sleeps/hibernates.

It is durable and that glossy finish that people were complaining about is difficult to scratch as my tablet been everywhere, i once sat on it by accident and thought thats it finished, it didnt crack or bend!

The keyboard dock is pretty good, people also complained that it had cheap feel to it but i disagree as i have seen much worse and it doesn't cost anything.

The tablet size is perfect, i just tried surface pro 3 and its huge and awkward to hold, its great for business maybe but when you sit at home on a couch to relax and browse, the t100 feels and handles just fine, love the wide bezel too as your fingers have plentry room to hold tablet without accidentally touching the screen.

Warranty: I also experienced ASUS warranty to repair the tablet after unsuccessful BIOS upgrade, they were fast and efficient, no charge for parts or shipment and had it back with me in 2 weeks time.

Other positives; bright screen, excellent battery, SD card expansion, usb3, hdmi out (on the tablet), stereo speakers and asus throughout this year kept on updating it contentiously to fix and improve.

Last thoughts; Do the maths; tablet, free dock, free m office and total price - its best deal. Normally with me new tablet lasts 1 year and then its time to upgrade, with T100 it doesnt seem to be this way, it is still great device that has its use for me!

This forum has been great in the past year for advise and help: http://www.transformerforums.com/forum/asus-transformer-book-t100-general-discussions/

5.0 out of 5 stars very good battery, 5 Aug. 2014
Firstly it is nice that this batter is not been falsely marketed as a higher capacity as many fakes do in order to attract more customers.

I have been using it for few days and its a very good battery; it fits well, good price, weights 5 grams less than the stock battery and charges at higher voltage of 4.35V which in theory should improve charging speed but honestly i haven't measured the difference. It also has NFC support but i dont have nay NFC devices to test it with.

it also arrived 50% charge which is good, i have red that you should avoid storing Lion batteries at low or high charge instead store them at around 40% to preserve battery health, so not too far off.

I thought i was going to use this a backup battery but now it became my prime one and the stock battery is now backup.

great price, the quality of the cables appear to be good, the braided finish does help to prevent untangling and colour difference does help to distinguish to which family member or friend it belongs to :)

1.0 out of 5 stars not right size, 4 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
like other user wrote; its too large and corners are not same round shape as the tablet's, it never fits properly. Later with some picture evidence the seller did eventually refund me.

3.0 out of 5 stars started leaking, 4 Jan. 2014
Had it since October 2012 and had no problems until October 2013 when it started leaking. Now buying different one.

Apart from that its a great looking kettle and had no problems with performances hence 3 star review not 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars solid build and great flexability, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i was a little uncertain as to how solid the leg mechanism is for the stand, it is very good, ratchet type so the only way its going to move if you push two sides inwards and then it frees the leg and once release it holds.

looks stylish too

5.0 out of 5 stars very good bag, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed slim version of laptop bag to fit my 14.1" laptop and then idea is that i can slide the bag into my backpack - so i was hoping this bag will not be too big.

Since Dicota N28068P is slim, its not so well cushioned to protect laptop from daily travelling and abuse, its bottom is cushioned and thats it but that all should be obvious from the product title and image.

There is document pocket on each side and the bag looks smart and laptop slides in nicely. Carry handles and shoulder strap as expected.

Very happy with the purchase and for £8.99 its wow!

4.0 out of 5 stars best tablet, 12 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I never had a tablet but always wanted an android one and was sitting around, waiting for them to get better, i been following transformer series from the start. Despite all the problems with the quality control of the prime i was willing to take the risk and had in mind that i might go for exchange once or twice to get the best working one.

First tablet arrived with light bleed on right side (landscape mode) with slightly loose frame, i then got replacement and there was still some minor light bleed but hardly noticeable.

My experience for the last 2 weeks:
Overall its fast, compact, excellent battery, great screen, great processor, great storage expansion and its also very good looking one! Its handling HD films up to 7GB large over WiFi, live wallpapers, its playing Grand Theft Auto 3 and jelly bean 4.1.1 is good release with no lag.

- Screen - is very nice, bright and IPS outdoor mode makes it even more brighter to counter the sun glare, viewing angle is very helpful. Screen is very responsive.
- Sound in/out - its standard and is what expected from a tablet, my only complaint is the position of speaker, right side (landscape mode), its where my fingers hold the tablet, so the sound if often muffled, its annoying and will bother me all the time. Audio out works well. Microphone does the job and no one has complained over skype.
- Camera/webcam - no problems, good quality with flash of course.
- Dock - im so glad to have it, the shortcut buttons on keyboard (home, volume, brightness....) and the gestures on trackpad are very nice, two finger swipe, pinch and etc... makes tablet more user friendly. Its extra battery, usb port are great bonuses. I use it a lot as a stand on table too.
- GPS - is unstable, on M25 motorway i was loosing signal on and off every 5-10 minutes, while my HTC Desire HD maintained signal.
- WiFi - no problems, good 65Mbps connection and decent range.
- HDMI - nicely working, has 2 modes: scale and crop, i was able to play games and watch films, no lag!
- Bluetooth - worked with no problems
- Storage - this is one of my favorite parts. You can expand storage twice; the SD card slot on the dock can be up to 64GB, also the microSD slot on the tablet can be up to 64GB. Not to mention the usb slot that had no problem reading my USB 750GB HDD. You dont need to hunt around for 64GB version of this tablet!

If someone ask me if i recommend this, my answer is yes and no; if you just want a tablet then you wont like it as its very likely that it will arrive with defect and for some people GPS issue is a killer. If you are into exiting design, android OS and technology - this will out weight defect issues.

I think this will last for a year at least, i will skip Infinity release and perhaps get one after release!
