Someday, Conan, I will be awake and still coherent to comment ahead of you. You have given me a goal. Thomas the train told me I can do it. That “coherent” part is hard though…
KitKat? Or is it stuck on ICS/JB forever?
This is an excellent tablet and I have owned one since they first came out. (July 2012, I think)…It was top of the line and the best “iPad killer” at the time. They have upgraded to Jellybean since. I notice that this one has ICS, but you should be able to update it instantly. The only downside is that it works best with the keyboard attachment, and that is another $100 or so. Still, this is a great price for an only slightly outdated tablet…
I’ve got one of these. The screen is beautiful, but Asus used substandard flash memory in the TF700T, and over time I/O performance gets to be so abysmal that whenever you initially load an app or when any background update or sync runs it turns whatever you are doing into a slide show.
I second this remark. I purchased one of these (with the keyboard) right before Christmas. I tried loading a custom ROM that optimized memory writes, and it helped a little. But the tablet still performed terribly considering the other wonderful specs. I ended up selling mine and buying a nexus tablet instead. There is a reason why these are still hanging around on Woot months later. Buyer beware.
Posting from one now (with keyboard dock).
The comments above say it all - Asus abandoned this tablet the moment they released the 701 that addressed all its flaws - and before much needed updates to 4.4.x.
Jerky performance. (lol - “every app a slideshow” - sad but true)
Asus ROM image laden with bloat & redundant apps that Google jam down your throat.
Keyboard dock is the ONLY saving grace for this thing, and it’s $$$$
Would not buy again unless well sub-$200
I purchased this tab new (not from woot) and I really like it – screen, form factor and optional keyboard dock all are great perks.
The tab, as others have pointed out however, has horribly slow I/O making the read/write transactions very tedious. From installing apps, to copying files, this thing really drags.
So why do I like it so much? An XDA developer (shout out to @sbdags) has been working tirelessly to create AND SUPPORT a series of highly optimized ROMs for this tablet and the thing really flies now. Crazy fast. Like I got a new tablet fast. That good.
Punchline: If you are willing to unlock/root this device shortly after purchase, you can have a highly affordable, high-performing tablet that you will be very happy with. If you are not willing to do that you will have a tablet “that is what you paid for”.
Link to ROM:
Added bonus: this week he released a KitKat Rom. I’m running that one now, and while not quite as polished as the JB flavor, it is quite good and continues active development to make it even better:
With one of these ROMs, I think this tab is a steal.
Tegra 3 is how old now?
agreed!!! I have TF700 with SANdisk SDx 32G running Cromi-X 5.4 and rom2sd and this tablet STILL grinds to a halt from time to time.
I highly recommend burning your $$$ elsewhere, buy a TF701, or grab your giant slingshot and be ready to launch this turkey over the neighbor’s house…
The following is highly recommended… stock is NOT an option:
Woot refunded my money over two months later when I concluded the bugginess was the tablet, not me. Beautiful screen and finish, though.
Custom ROMs are great! However, just looking at the link where it says you must be running JB 4.2.2 and TWRP blah, blah, blah, and supercalifragilisitic . . . Um, better carve out six hours on a Saturday to verify, download, backup, etc. this sort of business.
Does this include the keyboard?
No, per the specs page:
- Asus TF700t-B1-GR 10.1" 32GB Transformer Pad Infinity Tablet
- Docking Connector to USB
- Power Adapter**
Support and shop Woot.
My tablet died after a few days. I confirmed that it was the charger, woot could not replace the tablet BUT did refund more than enough do purchase a really good 2A charger.
You never really know how well a company warranty is until there is a problem. Woot not only offered a refund, but was flexible enough to get me happy without having to do a return/refund. They did not have this tablet to do a replacement.
