Asus - defn Not the quality it used to be - zero star

i have an exp pc headed to the land fill after a 1 1/2 yr lifespan. This transformer model is the HA - real processor and W10- on paper it looked pretty good. I have had good exper with ausus in the past but noticed that , at the time of purchase , they dropped their warranty from the best to only standard in the industry. Think i know why ... This product lacked quality from the begiining and went back for warranty service as the connections did not line up properly. Something aloong the same line now, again But , no warranty, no consideration, just a #300 repair bill . The product is shoddy and the service is non existent. Asus has gone from the best to pretty mediocre in a very short period ot time. Our family has 6 of their units - This is the very last time we will touch Asus - pretty much garbage !

Ok Laptop

This laptop is ok. It will often do the trick, but I find that sometimes it will not recognize wifi and just won't connect and it also needs to be very close to the wifi so I am not able to use my laptop throughout my apartment. I find I often end up just turning it off and using my phone.

Great portable work tablet hybrid

I purchased this item as a smaller, more portable alternative to my usual laptop for work. See pros/cons below. Overall, I would not purchase this item as my primary laptop/computer. Its functionality is in-between an actual laptop and a phone, so works beautifully as a secondary device with increased portability. Using this as a secondary device is especially easy if you use Dropbox/OneDrive/Google Drive/iCloud or some other cloud storage to keep your files updated from this tablet to your primary computer. Pros: Suits its purpose wonderfully. Excellent screen brightness. Great battery life, handles standard work tasks well. Very light and slim, and a fantastic budget purchase since the keyboard is included. I personally think they did a good job with the keyboard key size and layout considering how little space they have to work with. The hinge that attaches the tablet to the keyboard is nice and strong, not flimsy at all. Cons (most of which are a little nit-picky): Not great for gaming, but that isn't really part of its intended use anyway. A little irritated that there is no option to prevent sleep when music is playing in the settings. Also, Microsoft Mobile is a huge downgrade from Microsoft Office, but that's not Asus's fault. Be prepared to purchase Microsoft Office if you'll need to open more than one Word document at once or want to edit graphs on Excel. On the hardware side, the charging cable it comes with is ridiculously short, about 1 meter, which in my opinion is quite inadequate. If your outlet is on the floor like a power bar, the cable will only reach certain places on your desk, or the tablet may have to be turned such that the charging port is closest to the outlet. Keyboard dock tends to flex when typing, but it doesn't bother me too much. The dock is quite light to minimize total weight, so when using it as a laptop, it tends to be quite top-heavy and feels like it may tip easily. This means it can't be used as a laptop on an unstable surface (ie. your lap) very well, but works just fine on tabletops. Final word of advice, don't remove the tablet from the keyboard while it is off/asleep. This causes the tablet to think that a keyboard is still attached when it wakes up. Logging in to your computer then becomes a hassle with bringing up the Windows on-screen keyboard when the default touch keyboard won't appear.

ASUS transformer

Bought this for Internet and email uses. It is a nice little unit. Very compact and light weight. I hate Windows 10 but that is no fault of ASUS. Built in win10 email is useless unless you sell your soul and sign up for .live. Sometimes the keyboard locks up, but it is nothing that yelling and vigorously shaking won't fix (or just reboot) I bought a Surface for the old lady, and I am very jealous, but since this is 1/4 the cost it is much more than 1/4 the value.

Previous Gen Better

I had this units predecessor and it was an amazing lil unit. I beat that thing everywhere I went for 3 years before it finally gave up the ghost. I figured I would try this version which specs out better. Last one had Win 8.1 and this one has Win 10. I think that might be one of the issues this machine has is Win 10. It is slow to respond. Apps are slow loading. The touch is not too bad, but not up to the quality of it's predecessor. It can be overly touchy some times, and not reactive at others. Can be mildly frustrating. I recommend a mouse if using in laptop mode. Battery life seems to be better. Case is a nice aluminum vs the old plastic. Screen clarity is better. Would I recommend to others? Yes and No. If you just want a nice lil unit to watch youtube vids and surf the net, download pics and whatnot.....this is the machine for you. If you want to multitask anything.....this is not for you.

Tablet/Notebook

Great little unit. Does both jobs well (tablet and notebook) - and packs enough punch to playback any video I have thrown at it. Very satisfied with my purchase. Asus, always a good bet IMHO. Cheers.

Also returned in 10 days.

Product design looks good. Good screen picture. I bought it for the keyboard which works well. Wished it ran on android and not on Windows 10. It doesn't handle its operating system well. Booting up very cumbersome. Could not get it to print. Sending pictures haphazard and almost impossible. Spent hours on getting it doing the things I want to do. Ended up returning it. My next tablet again will be a Samsung. Yes, you get what you pay for.

Laptop is okay, battery is week

Bought for child to have for high school, nice size for carrying, the battery takes a long time to charge and doesn't last longer then 4 hours, advertised as 12 hours I believe.

A great choice

This laptop/tablet is a great one. Anyone here who rated this laptop/tablet bad, doesn't know how to use it. This laptop is not for GAMING or anything like that. It is only used for emailing and taking notes and nothing else. Dont buy this laptop if you think you are going to play with it.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT

Purchased this Jem after owning the first generation. The first Generation was a bit under powered and under storage/memory. 1gb ram 32 gb sdd. This lil powerhouse has 4 gb and 64 gb sdd and runs pretty slick . I use HDMI to display on a second screen for movies. This machine is very comparable to the Surface 3 Spec's other than Screen resolution. So I went with the more affordable option THAT INCLUDED A KEYBOARD!.. Again works great for my needs. If you are a gamer I wouldn't get this. but for someone looking for a great laptop replacement and a great form factor. then this is your jem

Dont waste you money

The tablet part is quite heavy on its own and when you clip it onto the keyboard the whole laptop tends to fall over backwards if it isnt tilted towards you. Speed isnt anything great, laptop really is a failure in terms of trying to have a tablet/laptop combo. I bought it and regret this purchase.

Surprisingly good for the price

I wasn't expecting much for the price but I was pleasantly surprised. It's turned out to be quite a good tablet/laptop. It's pretty fast for most things, the touch panel works and looks great, and the battery performance is also pretty good. It's really nice that the keyboard detaches (attaching & detaching the keyboard feels solid). All in all, I love it. Win 10 is also not bad - I set it to be in tablet-mode because I mostly use it without the keyboard. Very happy with the purchase.

ASUS TRANSFORMER T100HA

A gift for my Birthday December 19, 2015. Absolutely loved it but had issues with the skype camera that would have me upside down. Figured it out on my own.

Item returned within 10 days

You get what you pay for. I have my ASUS Eee PC Seashell series for over 5 years and it's on its way out, so I'm searching for a replacement. Unfortunately, the ASUS T100HA does not have the same high standard as the Eee PC. The entire T100HA is cheaply built and although it aims to be a 2 in 1 (tablet-laptop) PC, it ends up being neither here or there and I do not have the patience or the time to keep resetting the system. Let's hope I will have better luck with the Acer R3-131T.

An upgrade over the 2013 version in most ways

I'm a computer science teacher, and even though I have a couple of very expensive laptops I use this unit's predecessor, the T100TA as my daily driver that I carry with me to every class. It is just the perfect combination of cheap, light and just powerful enough that daily use isn't a chore. This year's model, the T100HA, is a remarkable improvement, but also comes with it's own shortcomings. Pros: Screen is much nicer. The resolution is slightly lower, but you wouldn't know it. It's more square now (it changed from 1366x768 to 1200x800. I find the the new aspect ratio makes things look bigger, and it follows the lead set by Microsoft's Surface line. The screen is also much brighter. The unit now has a USB 3 (Type C) port right on the tablet portion. Previously the only high speed USB port was on the keyboard. The full-size USB 3 connector on the keyboard is still there, as well. (You can also use a USB-OTG adapter to plug USB 2.0 devices into the charging USB port) It feels MUCH smoother and faster. When using the touchhpad to scroll through a website, the old model always stuttered and the new unit is as smooth as butter. Not sure if that's a fix to the trackpad or extra processor power but it's a much better experience. The body is a lot more attractive. There is no comparison. The old one feels like (and is) entirely plastic. Even the glass screen feels like plastic. I love that thing, but when you're used to higher-end finely machined aluminum gadgets, it just feels cheap. The new model is a harder, more premium feeling and almost has me convinced that it's metal (is it??). Pretty sure it's plastic, but I digress. The form factor is nicer. It closes more flatly and doesn't have awkward, asymmetrical curves like The T100TA Old model's battery took 12 hours to fully charge, and charged slowly at any %. This one charges in 3 hours, and gets 50% in less than an hour. The CPU (and probably the hard SSD speed) is noticeably faster. For Canadians: It looks like BestBuy now carries 64 GB models! They used to only carry the base model with 32GB, which isn't very much for a Windows computer/tablet Cons: It's heavier. The weight stays about the same overall, but the keyboard gets lighter and the tablet gets heavier. That's not good. It's now half way between an iPad 3 and an iPad Air in weight ... It used to be one of the lightest 10" tablets around. It was 1.1 lbs and now it's 1.3. That's a large increase. The keyboard is lighter - and noticeably flimsier, although still sturdier than any Surface earlier than Surface 4. It types just as well. I am used to it and I can type just as fast as I can on a normal keyboard now that I'm used to it. And I'm no slouch - I tested myself at 101 words per minute with 1 error per minute! No one in Canada has the US Keyboard model yet. If you're like me and you can't stand the French language keyboards there is no good news. I dont think most people even notice but I find the broken left-shift and enter buttons infuriating. The new model gets a rear-camera (the older model only has a front-facing camera). The camera is pretty mediocre. Your smartphone probably takes better pictures.

Great product for the price!

Excellent price for the quality and performance! Performance is better than the Atom eg. Z3735 especially in the graphics department! 4GB RAM also helps a lot for multitasking. I played with the Surface 3 (Z8700 CPU) in the store - it seems to lag slightly probably because of the higher resolution screen. I won't call the Asus' 1280 x 800 screen "bad" because it is bright and sharp. Why do you need a HD screen in a 10 inch tablet anyway? Your eyes can't see the difference. CPU performance is OK, I have no problem with light tasks eg. net browsing and office programs. I buy this to use as a "netbook" (remember this 5 yrs ago?) - if you need fire power go for the Intel Core which easily cost twice as much! No problem with youtube even in HD (though there is no need because the lower screen resolution is not showing true HD anyway). I used it for the first day (30% browsing, 60% youtube, the rest light tasks eg email, facebook) and got about 7 hour 45 minutes on battery. Not 12 hours claimed by Asus but my wifi router is two stories below and in the opposite corner of the house. 64GB "drive" (emmc) is a bit small, but it is easy to add a 64GB microSD card. BTW the emmc has decent speed (up to about 140 MBps read, 80 MBps write - good for emmc), and the microSD card reader speeds are also not too bad (up to about 80 MBps read, 30 MBps write) I don't get any "ghost touch" as reviewers who bought the first batch claimed. COMPLAINTS - (1) cheap sounding keys and touchpad clicks on the keyboard (but they work perfectly). There is hardly any flex and the keyboard feels solid. (2) SHORT USB cable for charging (but this seems to be the problem now that all tablets are charged by USB cable!). It is also difficult to plug into the USB socket. (3) Charging must be done with done with the included Asus charger. Other chargers (even the 2.0A ones) don't charge the tablet - this is a well known peeve for Asus products! (4) tablet is top-heavy when attached to keyboard in laptop mode (but this is the same for all convertibles)
