Most of the reviews I've read on this tablet have essentially said that it's a solid tablet functionally, but that its construction is weak and it feels cheap. Honestly, I don't see it. While it doesn't have the same ultra-solid feel that the high-end (expensive) tablets have, it doesn't in the least feel cheap to me at all. The back panel, while plastic, doesn't feel flimsy to me. The screen looks and feels high end to me. There's alot made about the newer resolutions like the new Nexus 7's 1920x1200 display, but my eyes can't really tell the difference in most situations. I will say that if you are planning on using this outside on a sunny day, forget about it - it's almost impossible to see the screen under direct sunlight. But indoors it is great, and it has great viewing angles as well. Some reviews complained about the button placement but it doesn't seem like a big deal to me. Some reviews also made a big deal about the back panel extruding slightly past the top screen panel, but I don't feel it's uncomfortable or in the least bit bad looking.Read more ›

UPDATE: 06 Feb, 2014: I've received the second replacement under warranty. Once again when I started up the tablet for the first time, it did not go through the typical first time startup walkthrough. This means that it was a refurb and had not had a factory reset. And again as soon as I went to the Wi-Fi menu, there was a "NVRAM Warning: Err=0x10" in the list and this could not be deleted. Every time I try to "forget" the network the error immediately reappears. Once again I'll be contacting Asus for another return. I will also mention that the Asus website is terrible to navigate for support and unless you are using Windows Internet Explorer, it is basically an unworkable website. I have reduced my rating further. Asus has completely dropped the ball on this. Quality Control is poor. Communication is poor. The website is poor. 3 strikes and you're out Asus. It's sad because the MemoPad HD 7 has a lot going for it but it's like throwing dice... you might get one that works, maybe not.
UPDATE: 22 JAN, 2014: A couple of weeks ago, I went to use my MemoPad and the battery was dead.Read more ›
For the rest of us, the 80%, it is what we need. I own an Asus TF700T 10.1 tablet, so I reviewed the 7" tablet knowing what my larger, performance oriented tablet can do.
The screen resolution is very good. Other devices around the same price have lower resolution screens. I had been looking for a 7" tablet for around $150.00, or less, but none had a decent screen. The screen on this tablet is clear, the pixels are small enough that letters do not look "blocky", and images are smooth. The movies I streamed from my Flixster App looked good. One negative: the screen does not have automatic brightness.
It is powerful enough for everyday use and I rarely noticed a "power" lag; however, I am not a gamer. The only "lag" occurred when rotating the device. The screen sometimes lags when changing from landscape to portrait, but even then, it wasn't consistent and jarring. The apps all run well, including photo editing apps such as Paper Camera and Pixlr-o-Matic.
Battery life seems great so far. The processer and screen probably help extend the battery life. Generally, as the power of the processor increases, so does the amount of power it consumes. The processor in this device may not be the most powerful, but it is energy efficient with minimal loss of use for most users. Screens really suck power. As screen resolution and pixel density increases, power usage increases. The screen is good and could be a bit better, but the tradeoff would be shorter battery life.Read more ›
