Consumer review (newegg.com)

Bought this for grandma, and it has offically replaced her computer.

 

Grandma wanted an iPad, so since I live on broke street I got this for her instead. To my surprise, she not only liked this piece, but now prefers it to the iPad. It can get a little sluggish since it isn't flush with ram and she has no idea (and...

-cost effective -nice screen especially in its prices range -good bit of storage -grandma can't fill it with viruses

-wish it had more ram -no camera flash makes grandma cry

waste of money

 

Big fan of Asus for years building my own systems and those for others, but lately its been let down after let down so I am going elsewhere...

Inexpensive

Power button has an unusual feel, starts very slowly, the charging port/charger are very poor quality and broke within a week requiring tape, bending, sensitive positioning to get recharged. Tapping on the screen and moving it around on my desk was all...

A bad time.

 

I swore by Asus! For years! Motherboards, monitors, graphics cards, power supplies. I bought it all. In 2005 or so I was happy to see Asus brands penetrating big box stores like Wally and Best Buy. They literally could do no wrong in my eyes. I have a...

My previous review was hasty. No pros :(

Tablet turned into a brick while charging. Worked for only three weeks of light use. Environment was: About 35% battery life remaining, plugged into a power strip using the cable and adapter that came with the tablet. Standard bluetooth keyboard was...

Not just bad luck. The screen dies with very high frequency

 

I thought ASUS would have repaired the problem or halt the shipment of

8" screen

The LCD screen does die like others have reported. Bought on 11/7/2014. The screen would not turn on on 1/1/2015. The tablet itself is on but the screen is totally dark despite of multiple power resets

Don't waste your money!

 

Will probably end up selling it online and get something else ... can't keep paying shipping fees to fix something that shouldn't break that often!

Cheap, good quality screen, OTG, big enough IMO but still small enough to be easily carried around

Stopped working after 3 months, send it in for repair and failed again. Screen would not turn on, any combination of buttons wouldn't "wake up" the device. This was a huge waste of time an money sine I had to pay every time I had to return it (had it...

Beautiful - But....Outdated

 

After seeing this on Newegg I called and asked a couple of questions. Newegg gave me the number to Asus support so I called them. Asus support was nice and after putting me on hold a couple of times came back and told me 1. There is no difference...

Nice display ; Good enough performance ; Good Sound volume and pretty good quality

Stuck at Android 4.2 with no updates on the horizon as per Asus tech support

Addendum

 

Just to add a bit more. I called Asus tech support again for an issue I'm having. I asked this agent about the android updates. He assured me that google is working on a 4.3 release and as soon as it's finished and released to manufactures, they will...
