Quality control is terrible for this tablet. Performance and build quality for the price are great. but there are way too many reviews saying theirs broke within 3 months, and Asus refuses to replace them.
Had mine for over 6 months with no problems. It received good reviews everywhere.
As for comments on the other products like lenovo, etc.. If I am getting a 9" and paying $200 for it, I would rather get a 7", at least it would be portable..
So if there is a $199 deal for a +10" or even $250 deal without tax or shipping, then I would definitely jump on it.
My wife's old laptop is dying and I rather just get a tablet for her since she just browses the web and watches tv shows on it anyway.
As for this deal.. NY tax kills it beyond recognition. Which is why it is still in stock..
if you are looking for portability. then agree, the 7 inch size is ideal..
IMHO. the tablet is portable , no matter what size,. however the 7 inch screen size is too sm all...and the 10 inch is too bid...the 9in is just right...
btw..please refrain from the "thats what she (he) said"
If screen size is not a concern to me, is this a better device than the Nexus 7 (32GB)?
It depends. If you're just looking for a tablet and the screen size isn't a concern then I'd probably go with the NExus 7. It's cheaper, and it's pure Google (stock Android so it gets updates faster), and the build quality is a little better.
On the other hand, with the TF300 you can get a keyboard dock that not only provides keyboard/trackpad functionality but it also doubles the battery life. That's the main reason why I went with the TF201 and then TF700 over the other brands of tablets (but then the Nexus tablets weren't out yet when I bought, either).
and will you go with the additional accident coverage (for spills, etc. Would this also cover a cracked screen?)?
I'm thinking of adding the 2 year, not sure yet as it's $34, and according to ST, it's an extra $27.00 for "ADH".
Accidental Damage from Handling (ADH) covers you from spilt liquids and dropped or damaged items. It's exactly what you need, whether you carry your laptop to work, bring your digital camera on vacation, or take your cell phone and MP3 player everywhere you go.
There is a $50 deductible when claiming accidental damage on Cell Phones only; SquareTrade has waived the deductible for all other ADH claims. There is no deductible if your issue occurred during normal use. ADH only covers new items - see complete details here.
ADH is only offered at time of initial warranty purchase, and can not be added once the Care Plan has been purchased.
I called Discover for something else, but I asked the question while I was on the phone with their CS rep. She confirmed that the purchase through Paypal would be considered online purchase and qualified for 7% cashbacks (5% online and 2% black friday). The total after CBs and ebay bucks would end up to be 245.69 shipped.
Ordered 2 of these and apparently UPS has lost my package. Contacted Adorama and instead of sending out 2 more right away (as Amazon and alot of other retailers would do) I have to wait until the end of this investigation (max. 10 business). Now, if UPS cannot locate the package, I have to wait the ten business days plus until however many days it takes for Adorama to receive the reimbursement. This would essentially take me out of the Christmas window. But they don't care. Great customer service. I know I'll get the package or my money back but they're fine with keeping my money floating out there like this especially with Christmas coming. Adorama sucks!
