    3.0 out of 5 stars Stunning tablet BUT... Feb. 14 2012
    Great tablet, BUT...
    I enjoyed working with it for 2 weeks. However the issue with wifi never got fixed despite contacting Asus and a couple of upgrades. Its wifi needed to be turned off and on repeatedly as it was getting disconnected from internet in a frustrating manner. A pity, but I returned the item today. I would love it if it didn't have that problem. I know there are not better tablets in the market now, but I will wait for a quad core one with no similar issue...

    5.0 out of 5 stars Transformer Prime is Prime! April 27 2012
    By G&S
    Verified Purchase
    Love the design and functionality of the tablet itself. I also purchased the docking station which I also highly recommend. Battery power duration for the tablet and the tablet with docking station has been as advertised so far, 10 and 18 hours, respectively.

    Wifi pickup appears to be a little weak, at least reflected by the number of bars, but I have full access to edges of my property (60'x110') outside my house.

    The GPS pickup is definitely weak and takes some time to report seeing and locking on satellites. This feature is not so important to me as I purchased the tablet primarily for adhoc internet access at home. The free GPS "dongle" that ASUS is providing until July 31st 2012 should address this issue and allow my using the unit as a GPS should I want to do so.

    The display is crisp and bright when required but definitely needs a wipe down every so often due to accumulation of fingerprints. Note to self - clean hands more often! :-)

    I have no buyers remorse over this product and highly recommend it.

    P.S. - My luddite wife loves it!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Tablet March 1 2012
    I've had my TF201 for about a month now & LOVE it. Graphics are amazing, it's easy to use & the connectivity/storage options are great. I have the keyboard dock as well which makes it even better. Only thing I am a little disappointed in is the sound...one rear facing speaker. But compared to all the advantages, that is a minor point. Highly recommend this product.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Transformer Prime Devine Feb. 8 2012
    This is a great device. Everything I wanted and more, GPS supported but it's a swift little bugger non the less. I am very happy with my purchase of this device and would recommend it to anyone.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Internet components Dec 8 2013
    Verified Purchase
    Everything works fine until u need to stream video or browse the web. I tried numerous places to see if it was just my internet reception that was bad, but it seems everywhere i go and every connection i get, the tablet cannot load a video fast enough without having to buffer every 5 seconds. I hope its only my tablet that is like that and not all the serie!

    When I was considering buying a tablet, the main point that I was looking for was to be able to watch my H.264 encoded videos (.MKV) on it without performance being an obstacle. The Tegra3 chip works wonders for that and the MXPlayer is one of the best video apps I've ever seen.

    I've since then changed my main use of the tablet to reading books on it, which is a bliss.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good but a long wait March 10 2012
    By AAA
    The Asus Transformer Prime is indeed a very good tablet. Although the Ipad 3 has surpassed it in screen resolution it does not have a quad-core processor. It is the quickest and smoothest Tablet on the market(including the unreleased Ipad 3).

    BUT... the extensive wait for this tablet is mind-blowing, the fact that this is the second time Asus does not provide enough stock is very weird. There must be many other customers thinking the same thing... So that is my opinion on the Asus Transformer Prime.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Great Power, poor implementation Feb. 19 2012
    By Dave
    Verified Purchase
    I really wanted to like this product. It's a solid, well-built piece of hardware. It "feels" like it should cost $600. The ICS 4.0 upgrade went really well as soon as I got the product connected to my home network. That's where the honeymoon ended for me, however. After I got about 25+ ft away from my router the wifi performance significantly dropped. According to the SpeedTest.net app, I was only getting around 2.0 mb/s down and about 256k up. That's on an 802.11n connection with a 30mb/s connection to the internet from my ISP. It's really a pain in the butt when you're downloading large apps that should go quickly. My next beef is with the battery life. I've done about 4 full discharges of the battery and 8 hour charges overnight in the week I've owned the product. I've never gotten more than 4 hours of use from the product before it needed to be charged again. Sorry, but for $600 that's not good enough. I love the tegra 3 processor and graphics that come with it. It's blazing fast and great for gaming. Honestly thought, that's about the only good thin about the tablet. I couldn't even watch HD youtube videos without pausing for buffering because of the wifi. It's a big let down for me. So, after a week of ownership, it's going back to Amazon. I'm sure there are models of this device which don't have the wifi and gps problems that plague my device, but I'm not willing to keep trying to find one that works the way it should.
