Everything I dreamed it would be!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS Transformer TF300 T-B1-BL 10.1-Inch 32 GB Tablet (Blue) (Personal Computers)
I got my TF300 a few days ago and I love it! I really wanted to wait for the Transformer Pad Infinity because of the nicer screen and the metal casing, but for $200 less, I felt that the TF300 would be a great deal and it is! I haven't tried to use the tablet outside, but inside the screen is bright and crisp - I have zero complaints about it.
Some of the best things about this tablet:
*It's able to run Flash programs
*Full keyboard dock
*customizability (Apple doesn't want you messing with anything except maybe where you put the apps on the screen)
*The ability to print on most printers using Google Cloudprint (Apple airprint lets you print on certain printers, but the list is short)
*Comes with Polaris Office (like Microsoft office and compatible with office and excel and power point)
*Much more compatible with a PC
*You can remotely control your PC using this tablet (really cool!)
*Way more apps than I thought there would be with all the hype about Apple's App Store having more - I have an iPhone and so I know there are gazillions of choices there, but if I didn't know better, I wouldn't have noticed the difference.
* You can use your PC to download apps directly to the TF300 without connecting it or anything.
*There's a widget you can use to kill all the running apps to save battery power.
As for the unit itself, it feels nice in my hands - the plastic doesn't feel chintzy, but I have nothing to compare it to. The touch screen is very responsive, the apps and browsing are fast and smooth (even with some really cool live wallpapers running in the background).
So far, I have no complaints at all. Part of me still wants the Infinity just because it will have some things that are really cool, but I'm not sure they are worth $200 extra when the insides of the two are pretty much the same.

Have you tried using it as a reader at night or low light? Wonder if it will adjust down to a comfortable brightness.

@charles e. mayes: Get the "screen filter" app. Without that app, no I don't feel that it was comfortable in a dark room. Good luck finding a unit without light bleed however.
@the reviewer: I'm astonished that you're excited about android tablet apps. Tablet apps are few and far between, and even the true tablet apps are glitchy and underdeveloped on android.

Re "killing running apps to save power": under Android, apps in the background or cached use little or no power. Apps that you switch away from or actually exit may be kept in memory until that memory is needed for something else; this is done for efficiency and doesn't degrade the performance of active apps. Contrary to popular belief, there is almost never any benefit in killing an app.

How long does the battery last ?

I just bought one. It doesn't play flash videos--which are still about 90% of what you get on the web. Adobe has pulled the plug on that. Be warned.

Right, Jelly Bean killed official Flash support. However, you can still sideload Flash and it will work with Dolphin and some other browsers.
