The portability of the Transformer is enhanced by its 0.5" thickness and 1.5 lb weight.

    ASUS Transformer TF101 Reviews

    16GB Eee Pad Transformer Tablet is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 292.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! This is a truly cool device! The only downside comment is that there is no usb port on the tablet itself. That means that you can't use you usb adapters to recharge. It requires a special and unique charger assembly that fits the keyboard adapter slot. Not so good for the consumer. Upside is that it has a keyboard that you can purchase. That attached gives you the usb. The video/hdmi is wildly clear and clean. The android interface is the best, most open, and therefore most useful. Finally, this device far exceeds my Acer, which it replaces. Acer after sale service leaves the customer at the curb, so this was an easy choice for me!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great start I use the Transformer for work(outside sales) and my 13 yr old daughter plays some games. I have activated the Asus cloud,so my Transformer, Asus Laptop and HTC phone all share the documents and photos I use.Setting up two email accounts, one active sync was easy and straightforward. The unit upgraded OS to 4.0 and all other preloaded apps once I connected and registered the unit. I have no challenges with WiFi connection, it works very well. The Transformer has performed beautifully and I'm happy with my purchase. B&H had the best price and next day free delivery UPS ground was a bonus.(NY Metro area) I would recommend the Transformer and B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Prompt Service I have had my transformer now for about a month. It great product and battery life is fantastic. The video quality i would rate is pretty good i havent had any trouble with streaming movies and such of netflix. I bought this mainly to use for school as ereader and entertainment in between classes. The only downside to this product is the charging unit is unique to the manufacturer and the there is no led to tell you its charging or to show full charge. Despite those small greivances its a great product. I am going to buy the docking station so that i can also use it to my school work. Once again cant stress how nice and portable this product is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eee pad transformer rocks! I'm new to the Android OS, but it is rather intuitive, and I have been able to utilize the tablet exactly how I had imagined. The main reason I got this tablet was its dual notebook/tablet functionality (not to mention it's 16 hours of battery life with the docking station). I can open and edit word, excel, and powerpoint files with software that comes with the tablet. The keyboard is small, but fully functional. I can also annotate pdf files with the an inexpensive app. I read a lot of articles that are pdf files, and this allows me to read and take notes directly on the pdf (I recommend using a stylus).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE my tablet! I bought my tablet for medical school. So far, I have used it to annotate PDFs and to take notes. The plus is that it is an Android device, so there are plenty of apps for everything. The screen size is also a huge plus because all of my textbooks are electronic, so the screen size is ideal--not too large to limit portability and not too small to cause eyestrain. I have also used my Asus for video calls, and it works wonderfully for that as well. The only downside is that I've found it difficult to type using the keyboard on the screen; however, this was remedied by purchasing the docking unit to make my tablet more like a laptop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good I returned my Vizio tablet and bought Asus eepad, I am really happy with it, its light and thin and fast, screen size is just right, I use it mainly for email,browsing,netflix and skype with mini hdmi cable, the screen is very clear, cameras are a bit grainy but overall pretty good for skype. Only gripe I have is with the speakers, not loud enough and very tinny. But overall I am happy with the product. I use it to rdp to my desktop, the bluethooth mouse connected without any flaw and is a must for rdp sessions and netflix when connected to my tv. Netflix on my tv with hdmi connection is really good, vibrant colors and no lags. Battery is amazing, charges very fast and lasts over 8 hours

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerfull, Wonderull and Affordable I am truly amazed by this device, I have been anticipating its arrival in the US market months before its official release date. I came really close to purchasing the Motorolla xoom but I really could not justify paying anything more than 400 bucks for any tablet device. I was surprised to discover that the graphics on the ASUS was slightly better than the XOOM, images were crisper. Sound on the other hand was better on the Motorolla XOOM. The ASUS transformer is light and has a sleek design. Plus the keyboard dock option is definitely appealed to me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Is The Ipad Killer It is the Ipad killer, or at least it is in my house. The Ipad has pretty much been sitting on the shelf since receiving the Transformer. Better graphics and multitasking are just a couple of things that move this tablet above and beyond. Polaris Office and the docking station make editing Word documents a snap.
