i have had a Nexus 7, pretty much since launch, but wanted a tablet with a bigger screen.
i was stuck with the decision between this and the nexus 10.
both were similar price
Nexus 10 has a higher resolution screen, but lacks an SD card slot and HDMI output.

so i took the plunge and bought this, and i'm happy to report, its a terrific bit of kit.
its handled every game i've thrown at it so far, no problems at all.

POSITIVES:
- battery life is reasonable (i have to admit that i charge all my devices every night anyway, so battery life is never normally a problem)
- the screen is sharp as a pin and very responsive!
- the memory is plentiful, 2GB Ram & 32GB Storage.
- build quality is very high as well. there is no flex in the case or creaking of plastic when i pick it up.

NEGATIVES:
- the only one i can think of so far, is the Bloatware that ASUS has installed, but even with this most of the apps can be disabled/uninstalled.

overall its a lovely machine and i would gladly recommend it to anyone! :)

I'm glad I waited for this machine to come out. It's becoming a very crowded market (even within the ASUS range!). I bought this as a replacement for a cheap and cheerful Yarvik tablet and I'm very happy with it. I got it just before a US roadtrip holiday and I was surprised at how little I had to resort to the Ultrabook that was also in the bag.
As reviews elsewhere point out, the nearest rival to this is the Nexus 10 (and I guess the next Nexus 10 will be even closer) but this is considerably cheaper and you're not restricted to 32G because it has a microSD card slot.
I was hoping that ASUS would have brought this out with a 3G SIM slot (like their 7in equivalent but I see that you can't have everything!
We even used this as our GPS device using the execellent (and free) Navigator App while we drove a couple of thousand miles on holiday.

Main good points
1. Card Slot
2. Seems very light (that was the first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box)
3. Excellent build standard
4. Very responsive - everything that I try do do just works as I expect it to do.

The downsides so far are
1. The ASUS bloatware. With everything that automatically runs when you get the tablet, the battery life is awful. It took a while to kill (permanently I thought) the offending apps (MyLibrary seemed to be the worst offender) but I've just installed a firmware update and I need to go through the process again.
2. I'm not convinced that the backing is the best, I find it quite slippery and would have much preferred that non slip rubbery surface that some tablets and phones have.
3. Note that this is an Intel based tablet and, as such, not all Play Store Apps will work - I was rather disappointed that VideoLAN doesn't run properly yet, I'm sure it will in time though.

This was an Amazon purchase. I'm a PC user and a fan of the Android operating system.

I bought the Asus MeMO Pad FHD 10 instead of the Nexus 10" on account of the cheaper price. It comes with some pre-packaged Asus Apps which I don't use. I already own the Nexus 7. I've had that tablet for a year now, that is a brilliant little device.

I've had the Asus tablet a few months now. Battery life is good, picture quality is excellent. The device is quite weighty and gives the impression it is well made. It has never locked up or seemed to have any bugs or foibles. The GPS (which is built in) works well with the mapping applications I use outdoors. If I was buying a 10" tablet again from scratch I think I would choose the same product.

I'm not fond of Apple devices - I bought an iPad4 when they came out but found it was so regulated and restricted in use and entirely reliant on cloud computing and iTunes to manage it. This I did not like. I kept it for two months and sold it on. No regrets with buying this Asus Tablet....

This tablet can do most everything you could want a tablet to do and at half the price of an ipad. Obviously the ipad has apps as standard that the Asus does not, for example word processing, Spreadsheet and presentation apps but at half the price of an ipad you can purchase similar apps for the Asus for very little. I have an ipad as well (which I like) but for what I use a mobile device for the Asus is excellent.The Asus is fast, the screen resolution is fantastic and it is so easy to set up. Now that Chromecast is available for about £30 you can use an android tablet like this to mirror the tablet screen whereas Apple TV is about £99. Apple TV does have a few more apps but if you want to watch Netflix on the Asus and cast it to your TV who needs to spend £99.
I do not have a negative thing to say about this tablet. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a 10 inch table. The price is quite remarkable

So to start it's under £300 which already defeats the price of almost all 10 inch full HD tablets . It arrived the next day after ordering, the box it comes In is a small size considering the tablet size. it comes with a USB charger and mains and adaptors . Something worth mentioning is that a incredibly useful stand to prop up the tablet comes In the packaging. So now the tablet.

It comes ready charged, the first thing you will notice is sharp display, presenting a HD wall paper. being HD it plays movies so beautifully across the 10.1 inch screen. I would recommend the VLC media player app to allow further compatability with files. because it has 2 gb of RAM ot nether lags whilst watching HD films which Is great. I tested high end apps such as smash hit on highest settings, it did lag once or twice at the beginning of the game but then was smooth as can be. It does have a fairly old operating system which can sometimes show, as pinch zooming on the home screen always lags, and looks untidy. Though the dated operating Austen doesn't really fail in any other way . The tablets a great weight and because of the 2 gb of RAM and pretty good proccecor it doesn't over heat under intensive multi tasking. The camera on both the front and back does look quite pixilated on the 10.1 inch screen, the front camera only being 5 mega pixels. Which is better than the galaxy 4. The tablets a very nice hold and feels shockingly light and sturdy, it also has a gripping finish on the back. It just looks great. incase you're wondering it comes with Google play store and a few strange asus apps. It has that great drag down screen apparent In most android operating systems. This screen allows you to change all the useful features like brightness (which Is a little dim, but IMO doesn't really affect it), and you can access settings from this screen. Just to mention doodle jump plays so well on this tablet. Anyway best under £300 tablet by far.

After loads of research I found the perfect Tablet which has replaced my laptop. It supports USB OTG functionality. Supports Micro SD up to 32GB (I have not tried more than 32GB). Supports Bluetooth keyboard, supports wireless file transfer between PC and tablet (via APP). It also supports Autocad 360 APP along with other free Android Apps. Even with loads of inbuilt Apps and further apps being loaded, there is still space left in the internal drive - about 26GB free!!

I bought this tablet in Jan 2014 and have been mostly happy with it, screen and sound good - definitely good value for money for the spec. Downside is that it has developed a problem with randomly shutting down. Nudge the power button to put it on standby, next time I try to open it I have to re-start it. Sometimes during re-start it also randomly shuts down, sometimes during use it turns itself off. This is VERY frustrating - imagine wanting to do a quick check of something and having to re-start your tablet 4 times before it stays on. Having read the reviews on the amazon.com site discovered that this is not an isolated case. Tried to go through the ASUS guarantee process but it's not particularly straightforward and they make it very off-putting. Have tried doing factory re-sets but no joy plus the frustration of having to load everything back on one thing at a time to see if it's an app compatibility issue. Sad to say that if I were to go back and choose again I would not choose this tablet.

Simply superb tablet. The power saving technology is amazing, in that with ad-hoc use of minutes a day & sleep mode usage, it lasts for days at a time between charges. Nice large bright screen in an unusual true HD resolution, i.e. 1920x1200, not HD ready or quad HD like some others. I'm sure this helps it's power consumption be small, since software will not have the extra load of resizing a film to fit the screen more than it should. I've seen none of the typing lag sometimes mentioned either. Would happily recommend to anyone.

I already own an Asus Tf101 transformer so can only compare this memo pad to that.

The HD screen is an improvement, really nice. However, when playing games , not huge ones, the screen is a bit jumpy and slow.
I was also rather disappointed that its not possible to connect to the internet using Ethernet which I have to on the occasional time that no WiFi is available.
Maybe the memo pad will grow on me, unlike the Asus transformer where it was instant love.

I've recently bought one of these and its a great little tablet for its price.. but it has some cons which are the screen brightness is fairly dull even at fully up. Also this tablet is impossible to root so stay clear of it if you want a rooted tablet. I've tried all rooting options and none are successful to date.
