CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY

By MR. FIX-IT

from WAUCONDA, IL

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Fast
  • Light Weight
  • Well built

Cons

  • Only One Touch Screen

Best Uses

  • Great for presentations

GREAT FOR PRESENTING SPREADSHEETS OR GRAPHS TO SMALL GROUPS.
LONG STAND-BY TIME

THE ONLY FAULT WITH THIS UNIT IS THAT IT SLIDES AROUND ON DESK OR TABLE EASILY IF SCREEN IS OPENED OVER 90 DEGREES DUE TO RUBBER FEET BEING LIFTED OFF PLATFORM WHEN OPENED TOO FAR.

Service and delivery comments:

I ACTUALLY CANCELED MY ORDER WITH ANOTHER VENDOR BECAUSE ABT WAS ABLE TO AQUIRE SOME OF THE FIRST UNITS IN THE COUNTRY.
IT'S GREAT TO HAVE CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY FIRST AND HAVE EVERYONE ADMIRE YOU FOR HAVING THE LATEST PRODUCT.

a lot of machine in a little package

By jax29

from elizabeth city, nc

Verified Buyer
Site Member

Pros

  • Both Tablet Notebook
  • Comeswadapterspencover
  • Light
  • Light up Keys
  • Thin

Cons

  • Requires Usb Hub
  • Smaller Hard Drive
  • Takes Getting Used To

Best Uses

    I waited for this machines release refusing to buy another till it came out. I use this product for work and pleasure. We travel a lot so it goes to the office with me daily, on road trips when that happens and at home for my personal use. I'm still getting used to it though. It's easy to travel with because of the size. Its a small screen but its not that bad. I hook mine to an external monitor. The only issue I have had with that is getting enough power to the monitor and keeping the settings to run on both displays. I think this may be user error but I am still working on learning this machine. I also am having some trouble with the touch screen glitching while in use as a tablet. I am still testing this issue to se if needs to be returned for repairs. This too may also be user error. This device comes with a cover, digitizer pen, vga to hdmi adapter(the one giving me issues) and a Ethernet to hdmi adapter. I thought that was an awesome touch considering the price of this machine. It has four display modes that I am still familiarizing myself with. Overall its as sexy as it looks and definitely worth the wait!

    ASUS Taichi -- Well Built -- Innovative

    By Bruce

    from lsoutherastern PA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Innovative
    • Quality throughout
    • Well constructed

    Cons

    • Too expensive
    • Too Heavy As Tablet

    Best Uses

    • Small Easy To Carry Offic

    Looked forward to this device from when it was first introduced -- disappointed by long delay after initially promised shipment -- when I rec'd it I already had the Smart PC PRO and comparing them I concluded the Samsung is a more practical device for me -- lighter, easier to use

    from Troy MI

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Looked nice

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Out of the box it didn't work correctly, it acted as if someone was tapping the screen all the time. Sent it back, Asus sent me another one and this one the touch screen didn't work. I am now waiting on the 3rd unit to arrive.
