    Default Transformer Pad Getting Sluggish

    Hi all. I've had my Tf300 for a few months now, but I feel like it has gotten slow. It's depressing for a Tegra 3 device...
    So anyone else having a similar experience?

    yes I have the same problem with mine. some reason mine is full and cant transfer files to SD card.
    And it continues to keep trying to download more and more games and apps on its own. had to delete and delete. I have many 3D games I like to keep since I paid for them, and was the main kind of gaming I wanted on the tablet. But now its slowing down.
    Trying to figure out a way to stop it from downloading the same apps over and over by itself. And figure out a way to speed things up!!

    Clearing caches is a start.

    Not that cache, just the app cache, you know, like in Settings>Apps>(App name)>Clear Cache.

    There's actually an app that does it for you in one click! Interested?

    Download History Eraser. I use that on my TF300 and it clears the cache easily.

    I don't think any amount of cache cleaning is going to help, maybe a custom ROM and actually using a fast microSD card to run some of the data from there.
    I think the problem is that ASUS chose crap storage controllers for all of the transformers.
    Read this:
    Potential I/O Bottleneck Fix for the Transformer Prime – xda-developers
    It looks like no amount of software changes will fix this, think it's time I start investigating ROMs that use external microsd for my tf300.

    Another thing to keep in mind: It's just like any HDD. The rule is: More files, less speed.

    That's why I said clearing the app cache is a start.
