5.0 out of 5 stars Best Android Tablet So Far, 31 Oct 2012
This review is from: Asus Transformer TF700 10.1-inch Tablet with Keyboard Dock (Gold) (nVIDIA Tegra 3 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 64GB eMMC, WLAN, BT, Front Webcam, Rear Webcam, Android 4.0 ICS) (Personal Computers)
After waiting for months and reading reviews online, I ordered the the TF700. I was extremely worried about purchasing a product for such a large amount so early on (received mine in September).

Most people who gave 5 stars have covered the most of the points. To make it simple I will list the pros and cons.

Pros
+ Looks like a quality product - does not have a cheap feel like TF300 or other tablets on the market.
+ Extremely thin and portable (tablet only)and easy to hold for reading.
+ Update on Jelly Bean: easy to install and it involves no technology knowledge but I don't think it makes a huge difference on the performance. But there is another update due soon, I believe Android 4.1.2/4.2.
+ No problems with connection such as WI-FI like the Asus Prime.
+ Keyboard has all the ports required
+ Tablet easily attaches to the keyboard and does not feel like you are going to damage it.
+ Movies look wonderful (download VLC Player on Google Play Store to watch movies in all formats)
+ ASUS Webstorage pre-installed which gives you 8GB free cloud space. You can set this up on your PC and just drag and drop files into the folder and it will appear on your tablet.
+ Kindle app looks great! (Important for those wanting to e-read)
+ Has a IPS+ Outdoor mode which reduces glare.
+ Amazing battery life with the added bonus on the keyboard passing charge to the tablet.
+ Keyboard is easy to type on.

Cons
+ Slight lag in the software responding to various tasks (maybe ASUS/Google should bring out some updates to fix this)
+ Don't expect to carry the keyboard around as it can get a bit heavy.
+ Not great range of covers available and the official ones are crap.
+ Lack of USB on the tablet can be annoying (need to fork out money for the adapter)
+ Notice that at times a blank line appears and runs across the screen (I don't know if this is bleeding) This happens very rarely and does not stay fixed.

If you are thinking of an Apple product or Android tablet (this one) you really cannot compare. The operating system are so different. My major issue with the iPad is that putting a movie is hell. You have to convert it to apple's format (which takes hours) and then transfer it using itunes.

If you are looking for an android then this is the BEST tablet. It has the overall package.

* Great Screen, Ports (usb and SD slots), Quality finish, Keyboard.
