Generally I am not someone who will write a review about tablet PC. I have chosen to write one on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer as I really do feel it has been a worthwhile investment. As you will see from my Asus tablet review this is a great piece of equipment for the price.
Although I have only owned mine for about 6 months I have been extremely impressed with it, even when I chosen to add new apps to it. Okay it isn’t big like the iPad version 2 but I still find the screen on this particular tablet comfortable to use. Also the operating system installed, which is the latest Android one, is very good as well.
So what makes me so enamoured with this particular tablet and has me writing this Asus tablet review.
Well first off it looks absolutely great. The metal frame surrounding it is very sturdy and the knobs on it are also very sturdy being made from metal as well. Okay the back of it is plastic but it is made from the kind that when held makes it feel very solid. In fact overall not only does this look very luxurious it also feels it.
The next thing that I have found great about the Eee Pad Transformer is the IPS screen. No matter what angel it is viewed from you will find the images are still great and the colors that appear on it are well saturated. Also when you touch the screen it is very fast to respond.
As yet I haven’t had to use it until the battery needs recharging. What I have actually found is that I can use it for 6-8 hours at time with various background applications running and the GPS, Wi-Fi and Skype on and the battery has only run itself down to 30% of charge left. So I can use it throughout the day without any problems and then at night I simply plug it in to allow the battery to become charged once more ready for me to then use the next day.
I do quite a lot of travelling and so chose to install the Kindle app on my tablet and has worked perfectly from the moment it was downloaded and installed. So no longer do I have to put a book in my bag. Also the other apps I have installed on my tablet such as the Amazon store works really well as well. Plus of course the preinstalled Google android market app also works perfectly and I have found it extremely easy to navigate.
As for the quality of the sound I have to say that for such a small piece of equipment this tablet does pack a punch. When on long trips with my children it has proven invaluable in allowing them to watch movies and play games. There have actually been occasions when driving that I have asked them to turn the sound down on it.
As you can see from this Asus tablet review I am really happy with the money invested and this tablet is certainly my favorite apart from ipad version 2.
