My first Windows 8 tablet was a Samsung Ativ Smart PC (XE-500T). It's an overall excellent device, but has a few fatal flaws: 1) A plastic back is a very bad choice for a 11.6" device and the tablet has way too much flex (mine produced creaking noises) 2) Intel has come a long way with Atom processors, but overall performance was a bit laggy. 3) The Ativ at 11.6" was just a bit too thick and a bit too large to qualify as portable.
Anyways, back to the review of the Vivo Tab:
1. Build quality- The Asus feels solid. Fit and finish is superb and it feels like a premium device. I'm guessing that the tech journalists who have reviewed this device to date received preproduction versions. Bottom line is that build quality should please any iOS fan and is a nice step up even from premium Android devices such as the Galaxy Note 10.1
2. Screen - Very nice. Better than an iPad 2 and almost as nice as an iPad 3. The screen has a particular color tone to it, but that's usually the case with most screens.
3. Performance - I was very skeptical about Windows 8 performance on a tablet. Windows devices have been so guilty of having rockstar specs on paper, but have never performed to their full potential in the real world.Read more ›
Before I continue, here is a list of tablets that I have owned. This list is to show that I know what to look for in a tablet.
Ipads 1 and 2
Samsung Galaxy tab 1 and 2
Asus TF101, SL101, TF201, TF700T, and TF600T
So, as you can see I am well aware of what to look for in a tablet. I have not touched my laptop for nearly two years because the TF700 has fulfilled my work needs while on the go. I bought the TF600 (vivotab rt) with the intention of replacing my TF700.
So, here are some complaints that I've seen about the vivotab and why I think the complaints are not legit.
(1) Keyboard is too small to type.
Of all the complaints about this tablet, I think this is the most bogus. Yes, it is small, but if you can't type on anything that is slightly smaller than the full size desktop keyboard, then don't get a 10 inch device. The keyboard is 97% the size of a full size keyboard, so it's not that much smaller. I am typing full speed on this keyboard, and I have fairly large hands. I've not noticed any discomfort at all. If you find yourself unable to type full speed with a keyboard it that is 97% the size of a regular keyboard, then just get a full size laptop.
(2) The trackpad is too sensitive, making it too easy to accidentally touch and change the place of the typing cursor.
It took me a whole 5 seconds (if that) to find a way to disable the trackpad.Read more ›
Edit: By Outlook, I meant "Mail" on the start screen. You can sync outlook accounts, yahoo, gmail, etc all into one hub.
Okay, so I've had this tablet for almost three months, and I must say that I have still do not have any regrets. The app store is constantly being updated with new offerings, but is still far from what is available for the ipad and android tablets. BUT with that said, there is a huge difference here...with the Windows RT OS, many of the apps you would need due to lack of flash support are availble simply by going to the website and having the full feature of the target website...hope that makes sense. In short, I'm not missing anything that I used to have on the iPad2 or Nexus 7 I used to own. Aside from the awesomeness that the keyboard dock offers in terms of battery life, the feature that has really worked well for my family is the ability to have individual user accounts. We have three kids that are constantly on the Vivo Tab researching and typing their school work. And just like a computer with multiple accounts, they can set the home screen to suit their individual needs and thier files are stored accordingly...no mix ups. Pinting is a snap too...the Vivo Tab automatically detected our wireless printer...due to restrictions placed on their netbooks from their school, they cannot add our home printer. So as you can imagine its been getting used ALOT. The keyboard/battery dock is a crucial piece of this multi-tasking puzzle. With an average 13-hr battery life (our use) with keyboard, the one thing I heard the most from our kids was the relief of not having to worry about plugging the power supply in (mobility at its finest). As for the rest, it has continued to meet my expectations.
Sooo happy we as consumers finally got something other than android or iOS.Read more ›
