5.0 out of 5 stars Would be almost perfect if I could figure out how to keep the cursor from jumping1, May 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS Transformer Pad Mobile Dock TF300T (Blue) (Personal Computers)
Bought this for my new T300 Transformer. It has a great design and I love the fact that it extends the battery life of the tablet as well. I wanted to use it for text entry while traveling and commuting, but I am having a whale of a time trying to adjust to the continual skipping and jumping of the cursor. I am sure it has something to do with the track pad, but I can't find a way to adjust it and make it less sensitive. I am typing away at a sentence and then look up to see that I am two lines forward or backward in the middle of another paragraph or sentence. If I could resolve that issue I would have a perfect addition to my tablet repertoire.

***I went online looking for a fix soon after my post and learned that I can actually turn off the track pad while typing. I have tried that out and it seems to work exactly as I had wanted. That is great and allows me to change my rating from three to five stars.

I find touchpads to be a nuisance at the best of times. Ideally, Asus should provide a pointstick option like on the Thinkpad range of laptops by IBM/Lenovo. As a touch-typist, I find the pointstick/TrackPoint very ergonomic compared to a touchpad or mouse due to minimal movement and less risk of repetitive-strain.

I'd like to use this[1] USB keyboard, but unfortunately the Transformer Pad's only USB port is on this overpriced, underfeatured dock. These days, I'd expect a *real dock* to have at least 3 USB 3.0 ports, a full-sized HDMI port, and all of the ports the tablet itself has so that the wires can lie flat on the desk. Also, the battery capacity should be more than the tablet, not less. This would also make it bottom-heavy for better stability.

This 'dock' is no way worth over a third of the price of the tablet itself[2], and the lack of a decent version of this product is the single biggest reason why I have not bought the Transformer Pad TF300T. This is only a deal-breaker because the tablet is missing a micro-USB OTG port[3], meaning that this product is necessary to get a single USB connection.
