Expensive but good.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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)
I originally bought an Asus Transformer Prime (TF201).The screen cracked within a week and was returned after a very poor response from Asus customer service. It was replaced with another TF201. After a short time with the TF201 I realised that it is not fit for purpose. The radio subsystems (Wifi, Bluetooth and GPS) are seriously compromised by the all metal case. GPS in particular was very poor. Asus distributed a GPS 'dongle' which 'improved' the GPS performance from non-existent to very poor. After a couple of firmware updates, I realised that the TF201 wasn't going to get any better and I returned it and took a gamble by ordering the TF700 which looks almost identical but costs more!
I'm pleased to say that the gamble was worthwhile. The TF700 is a great improvement over the TF201. The radio systems all work as they should and the device has become a joy to use. It's still not perfect; Bluetooth disconnects occasionally and the browser sometimes 'stutters'. However these faults do not happen very often and I believe they are more to do with the Android operating system than the TF700.
Throughout this traumatic series of events, Amazon has been very helpful and professional. I cannot fault their customer service in any way.
