- Super fast performance.
- Love the IPS screen mode when using the tablet outside.
- Touch is very accurate.
- Screen size is perfect for reading a full size html website and ebooks.
- Outstanding Video performance.
- Front and rear cameras. Quality seems pretty good, but not as good as standalone camera.
- GPS performance is great, even inside my house. I use the CoPilot app.
- Side button placement does not interfere with your hand placement irregardless of the tablets
- orientation. The buttons also take a good amount of pressure to engage, thus when its sitting on something (like your lap) the button wont accidentally get pressed.
- WiFi conductivity is excellent. No problems connecting and maintaining connections. Signal strength is great.
- No 5Ghz wireless N support. Only 2.4 Ghz is supported.
- Not running the latest Android OS (Jelly Bean).

ASUS TF700T-B1-GR 10.1-Inch Tablet review
Speed: I don’t know what else to say but it’s very VERY fast. I’ve loaded over 225 apps of many different varieties on it, so I’d say I’ve put it through its paces. Now, I’m not saying that you won’t have a sluggish moment here or there. What I AM saying is that if you do, it’s probably the app you’re using that’s to blame. A poorly written app can cause a plague of problems on any device. I have a couple of apps that I’m willing to forgive shortcomings for because of functionality they offer but I can say that their shortcomings aren’t nearly as apparent on this tablet as they have been on any of my other Android devices.
Battery: If I beat it REALLY hard, I can kill the battery (tablet only) in about 6 hours. My version of beating it really hard is multi-tab web browsing with Flash turned on, switching back and forth between several other apps, installing apps, downloading from my Box.net account, playing some games, using a remote desktop client, etc. All the while running either native movies or YouTube streams in Stick It Player (resize-able, floating, video player window that renders on top of whatever app you have open.) If I use it like most people would normally use a tablet, I can easily break the 10 hour mark (tablet only.) With the dock (I’m using the Prime dock,) I get anywhere between 9 and 16 hours of use out of it.
Dock: I’m using a Transformer Prime TF201 dock because A) It has a bigger battery than the Infinity dock and B) it was about $50 cheaper than the Infinity dock. It works perfectly. All of the ports, the keys, the charging, etc. work exactly as they should. One thing is, it’s a little bit tighter of a fit but all that really means is that there’s less play and you have to manually slide the lock over to secure it.
Cameras: Front-facing is great for video chat (tested with Google+ Hangouts and Skype) and the rear-facing takes absolutely beautiful pictures. I’m almost willing to consider being “that guy” who uses his tablet instead of a camera.
Bottom Line: I haven’t found a single thing I dislike about this tablet. It really is everything they say it is, which is rare in this day and age. I would happily buy this tablet again.
