I have this tablet since release date. I had it preordered.
I will say, the I/O issue is really annoying. Your TF700 may feel like it hangs when performing read/write operations such as updating apps, or just feel sluggish in operation such as swiping home screens or typing.
If you like to go custom roms, there are some available that improves oem experience (drastically), but is still slow if you were to compare to say a Nexus 7 or an iPad.
Just a heads up for potential buyers from a current owner. Other than that, this is a fantastic tablet as far as battery life and having a physical keyboard that props up the screen (tablet).
There are many custom ROMS you can replace the stock OS with that solves this problem. There's a ton of options and a large development community for this device.
You'll need to root it, loose warranty, install custom recovery, flash new ROM, make sure you have custom kernel too, turnoff I/o sync, hack the browser to work in RAM, and then You'll might have an acceptable performance.
