Happy with the a700,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Acer ICONIA Tab A700-10s32u 10.1-Inch Tablet (Silver) (Personal Computers)I own both the a700 and the tf700t, having upgraded from two a500's (which I was happy with). I have owned the a700 since June 16th and used it up until passing it on to my girlfriend last week. I have owned the tf700t since the 20th of July. These are my observations: Both tablets have touch screen issues. The tf700t seems to have improved after a recent update. Both displays are beautiful, both have great viewing angles, however the Asus is brighter. I do not play high graphic games on either tablet, that said, the tf700t dissipates heat better (not that I am bothered or worried about the a700's heat). In the sound department the advantage by far goes to the a700. Two speakers, Dolby, and slightly better placement wins out. Both tablets exhibit lag in the browser. I would give build quality to the a700. It just feels better to me. It is slightly heavier but that does not bother me. I don't use the camera or video on either tablet; on paper the Asus has the advantage. The Acer has the better battery life. The Acer also came with the micro to full-size USB adapter, I had to pay $17 for the Asus adapter. I like that the a700 has a cover for the micro SD, the tf700t does not. I like that the a700 does not use proprietary ports. Charge port is of the micro USB variety, the tf700t's charging port is proprietary.
Overall, I like the Acer a700 a little bit more than the Asus tf700t. I have had no major issues with it. I have had issues with the Asus tf700t. Freezing, wifi connectivity (slow to connect), and the dreaded white screen off death. Recent update did not fix those problems...happened to me before and after the update (except for White screen). If only the Acer a700 had the higher clock speed and ddr3 RAM, it would be the better tablet for sure. For now, I hope Asus gets on their horse and fix the issues with their tablet.

Now these are the kind of great reviews I'm really looking for because I'm torn between choosing the A700 and TF700T. Anything else you'd like to add for your comparison is so greatly appreciated. Thanks zealouz33!
