About This Brand
Google's 7- and 9-inch Nexus tablets run on Android OS.
After I bought this tablet I pretty much abandoned my desktop computer. Easy to tote around, works even on sunny days. Games, video and web browsing run perfectly. I've watched alot of video on it, the screen is excellent, great color balance. Super responsive touch screen as well.

Will not communicate with Windows XP
Drops Wireless Frequently
Won't Talk To Windows Xp
I wanted a tablet for email and photos. This one drops wireless connection (3 bars) every few minutes, so email is frustrating. <br />I want to move the photos to my laptop, but I can't because this Android system is not recognized at all by Windows XP. It can't even see it as an external drive. I called ASUS and they said it would never work with XP. I don't think I should replace my computer just to make my tablet happy... so I am returning it to the store.

Fast internet access
Good screen resolution
Asus Won't Fix Screen
Pressure Hairline Cracks
Screen Is Faulty
Really liked this tablet until two months into owning a hairline crack appeared on screen which made it impossible to use. Never dropped or mishandled but techs at Asus said it was not going to cover a new screen even though there have been many complaints about this exact same thing happening to others. Will not buy another Asus tablet because of Asus' denial that screen is faulty.
