Review Asus VivoTab Smart ME400C Tablet


The compatible one. No matter whether iOS, Android or Windows RT, all operating systems have their quirks when it comes to the compatibility with the standard Windows 7 or Windows 8 versions. Asus' VivoTab Smart might eliminate these restrictions owing...

Bright, viewing angle stable and high-contrast screen, Good touch features with reliable feedback, Good battery life, Far-reaching Windows compatibility, Windows 8 on a tablet. That works quite well and is as functional as a Swiss pocketknife

Fiddly micro interfaces, Hardware button with moderate feedback, Partly outdated performance for Windows 8, Matching cords and adapters for the micro interfaces. Also, the graphics solution for Windows 8 could have a bit more power and above all a...

ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400 10.1 inch Windows 8 Tablet Review


The ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400 Tablet is running Windows 8, this gives the ASUS VivoTab Smart a great selection of applications. Actually it is pretty much anything will run in a Windows environment. Toss in the battery life that we experienced and the...

Asus VivoTab Smart


Full Windows 8 operating system, 8MP rear camera, Light and comfortable to use, Cheap for a Windows 8 tablet

Low quality internal speakers, Low resolution screen, Frustrating to use without a bluetooth keyboard, No USB connection out of the box, Build quality could be better

We've reviewed quite a few tablets here at AVForums, the majority using the Android OS but a couple of iPads as well. They've varied in looks, design, specification and performance, ranging from the top draw iPad down to a sub £250 Toshiba AT300. As...

Asus VivoTab Smart


Beautiful screen, Well built, A pleasure to hold, Decent battery life

Poor sound, Occasional performance hiccups

For those holding out for a full Windows 8 tablet that’s capable of running regular Windows 8 programmes, the Asus VivoTab Smart is what you are looking for. With an LTE version available as well (not tested here), as far as Windows 8 tablets go, the...

Asus VivoTab Smart (ME400C) Windows 8 Tablet Review


Want a tablet but struggling to justify the laptop-like price tag? Want a laptop but thinking that the larger size could be an inconvenience? Asus aims to make those problems a thing of the past with its best-of-both-worlds VivoTab Smart (ME400C)...

Full-blown, 32-bit Windows 8 can handle desktop and tablet usage scenarios ; Easy and comfortable to use ; Very good design and build quality ; Excellent battery life ; Plenty of wireless connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS ; Good price

Requires the £90 TranSleeve keyboard for best productivity ; Low wireless networking speed ; Poor brightness levels ; Weak CPU and GPU performance – out-gunned by high-end ARM chips

KitGuru says: An easy and fun to use hybrid device that has a good battery life and competitive price tag. Better hardware performance and the VivoTab Smart would be a formidable competitor to high-end tablets and entry-level laptops.

Great warranty


Great Tablet, no problems. I dropped it and broke the touchscreen and since I had the extended warranty they gave me a gift card to replace it!!! I told them that I broke it!! and they still replaced it. WOW

If you erase the recovery partition (to recover the hard drive space), you cannot reinstalled to operating system thru the USB

Screen is already going out


I love having the full version of windows on it. It has been very handing many times, since I am often away from my desk. The price fit easily within my budget

I have had the tablet for only 2 months, and now the touch screen is becoming unresponsive. There is about a 2 inch circular(ish) area on the screen that just does not respond to any touch. And it is in the worst possible place ; I hate the idea that I...

Decent Tablet for the price but..


For the most part I am happy with it. For the price it is was a good buy.

Decent speed, good screen, Isn't Windows 8 RT but a full 32bit version of Windows 8

Don't like that it charges via Micro USB the ONLY USB port. I wish it had a full on USB Port too. Also I didn't get a charge cable to begin with. Got the part that plugs in to the wall, just didn't get the cable. Funny I ordered this 2 days after a...
