ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad full info&review

dear vistor of my blog today   i am review ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad


Fit and finish is 100%, Very solid feel.

ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad Size
Very thin, kinda difficult to hold in hand, I'd recommend purchasing a gel case
or something similar.


Played the pre-install games and they both ran with 0 stutters and were
extremely fluid. did i purchase a a multipurpose tablet or a gaming tablet... i think the latter :)

ASUS Transformer Prime was completely fluid when changing from one screen to the next, i especially like the multi window
ASUS Transformer Prime  on the bottom left, it will allow you to select anything previously opened (and will allow you to close too)

Built in music player seemed basic and didn't appear to have the ability to download album art. I'll stick with
amazon cloud mp3 player.

(subject to further testing) web browsing seemed to be a little slow, this was experienced with java enabled... with disabled performance was snappy and good
Unfortunately this is what caused me to give 4 instead of 5 stars. The audio is quite loud and clear
however only being emitted from a single speaker port does not provide the spartial/stereo sound. perhaps
blue tooth or headset will eliminate this concern.

Front facing 1.2MP camera provided acceptable image quality, however white balance should be adjusted to fully ensure quality (dont use automatic) , rear facing camera provided a good quality picture with decent focus and brightness... even in poor lighting conditions however any zoom used the image would be blurry depending upon x2 x3 etc. video mode was tested with low movement and provided a better quality .
ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad Battery life
Unable to report at this time since testing was limited to less then a full charge.

Was very colorful and bright, 600 nits of brightness will make 
ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad useable outside. normal amount of backlight bleeding (almost none but there's always some). back light bleed test was performed and two hot spots were identified one on bottom and other on right side. As mentioned previously the amount of light imo is quite minimal and i've seen far worse on other items. one of my apps displayed a completely white page and there was two hot spots (white slightly brigter then the rest of the page) this may be a fluke or not... i was able to duplicate the brighter pixel, its barely noticeable however is visable on default screen in other colors... not a deal breaker its about the size of a pin head with a slight glow around it, clarification you wouldn't know its there unless i told you to look for it.

WIFI Range
two apps were used to test the wifi range speedtest (same test server) and WiFi analyzer. I've only compared the two and not a laptop.. plus my house has about 800watts of electronic interference :)
12 feet away from base station
Best reception i got was 5/9 stable 4/8. Reports have been surfacing GPS isnt working or isn't working properly... When I performed the test it did find 4/8 and continued to have the searching graphic. Honestly I don't know what is normal for GPS reception with this device. Will compare against phone later.

ASUS Transformer Prime TF201-B1-GR Eee Pad Operation & bugs

With any new device there will be patches and bug fixes, I don't assume any different with the prime.
while transferring pictures via usb , i was viewing the pictures and multiple times it froze and displayed
error resulting in restart of picture viewer. Another item was installation of a large game soft game dungeon
runners 2, I had music playing in the background and every 15 seconds or so the music would stutter for a second or two
and then continue playing. I'm sure this will be addressed with ICE and the use of 4/5 cores properly.
