The keyboard is the best I've seen for any tablet on the market.
F. Lawrence
I have not had issues with battery life with just the tablet but having the extra with the keyboard dock is great.
The keys have a nice touch response - A little bit small, but pretty easy to to get used to.

While not exactly a docking station, this is clearly more than just a keyboard. It comes with:

- USB 2.0 port
- full size SD port to complement the tablet's own microSD
- charger port on the left side but no actual charger
- extra integrated battery pack to power the tablet


The keyboard attaches itself to the Transformer tablet and, once attached, the 2 are fully integrated. The keyboard's battery adds to tablet's to allow for about 16 hours of playtime. The Transformer 'sees' the keyboard SD and USB ports and, once something is attached, the OS adds the proper buttons to the tablet's screen. With a 32GB SD card on keyboard's slot you get quite a bit of storage. Even better, the 2 battery packs will easily power a USB-attached HDD for hundreds of GB of storage.

The touchpad produces a mouse pointer on the screen. Tapping emulates mouse clicks. If you are typing you can turn off the touchpad's input.

Of course, all these extra goodies are available for as long as the keyboard stays attached.


Anyone used to tablet-size keyboards should feel comfortable with this one. Probably more comfortable because this is a well made keyboard and, of course, because it comes with the touchpad. The keyboard comes with dedicated buttons to open up the browser, for settings, brightness and volume control and for locking/unlocking the screen.


This is not a 'cheap' keyboard in any way. It's quite expensive but it comes with enough features (battery, ports, touchpad) to make it well worth it IF you are planning to use the tablet with the keyboard. And, even if you don't, its extra battery pack and its ability to connect with USB devices still makes it well worth the expense.

I am very pleased with our Transformer and the keyboard/dock makes it an even better device.

Color Name: Amethyst Gray
If you are traveling with your Transformer Prime this is a must-have accessory. The keyboard is a perfect match for your tablet, it feels just like the back of the TF Prime, and it is as well made as the tablet itself. The keys are very comfortable to type with given the size of the keyboard, and they are spill & crumb resistant. The keyboard dock add 6 hours of battery life, can act like a stand for holding up your tablet, adds a full USB port and full SD Card slot and of course makes it significantly easier to type on. It also adds hardware keys for most tablet settings such as screen brightness, wifi toggle, volume, video playback and other controls. The keyboard will also protect the screen when traveling with the tablet in your bag or whatnot.

The only negatives I have to say about the keyboard dock are minor.

The most annoying (for me) is that the trackpad is set to "tap to click" so I keep accidentally selecting items while navigating with the track pad. Currently there is no way to turn off this setting, however there is a keyboard button to disable the trackpad itself if you want to use a normal USB mouse, which works perfectly with no drivers.

The second minor irritation is that the keyboard is lighter than the tablet itself so if you are are using the keyboard on your lap or another uneven surface the tablet will tend to fall backwards unless you keep your hands on the keyboard.

All in all this dock is an amazing addition to the Transformer Prime tablet and if you have the tablet I would definitely recommend this accessory over any other.

Before buying this I was not sure I would find it that useful. But I bought it anyway because it looked cool. I have been very pleasantly surprised. It's a very nice little keyboard and totally transforms the machine (as advertised!). It has a good trackpad and a slightly stiff chiclet feel, and lots of useful dedicated function keys. The layout is very similar to a standard PC keyboard - it's not another unfamiliar layout like all of the onscreen Android keyboards are. I have been impressed by the attention to detail (which may be to Google's credit or to Asus's - not sure) - e.g. CTRL + backspace does a forward delete; the search key is placed to the left of the space bar and functions like the Windows key in that you can press it and type to launch an app or search.

My only criticisms are relatively minor: there is no "wake" key on the keyboard so you still have to use the one above the screen, the lock key is close to the backspace key so you can accidentally lock your screen while typing, and the left shift key is small and takes a bit of getting used to.

Overall I'd recommend this strongly to anyone with a Prime, especially as it contains a second battery that significantly extends your (already excellent) battery life.

This is probably the main reason I got the prime and what sets it apart from any other tablet on the market right now. No other tablet including the iPad has a keyboard dock that offers so much all in one device. This keyboard dock increases battery life by additional 6 hours and since it's not Bluetooth like just about every other keyboard it doesn't drain the tablets battery it enhances it. An addition to being a keyboard, battery this dock also provides extra inputs to the prime for added functionality and versatility. The dock has a full size USB port and sd card slot. USB port allows you to connect just about any USB device including hard drives, USB flash drives, gaming controllers, etc.

I found the keyboard very easy to type on once my fingers got used to where all the keys were. One complaint is some of the function keys like the menu key, home and search weren't placed in a very easy to find location. These function keys in my opinion should all be placed together in the top line of keys were some of the other function keys are located. Also it's very hard to type without waking up the touch pad and it affecting your typing. The touch pad does have a on and off switch but does get tedious switching on and off when you want to type. Maybe they could incorporate some kind of auto off for the touch pad so when your typing it doesn't get accidentally pressed. Another option is to make the dock bigger and space out the keyboard further away from the touchpad. That brings me to my other gripe the keyboard is way too light and this causes the prime when docked with keyboard to be top heavy. If your not careful the whole thing will tip over if pushed too far back. The keyboard dock also lacks a app switcher button.
