    Well please apply to Asus to repair their products. Guess you did not really watch the videos, just gave a response.
    Some history for you, Purchased in Nov 2012, returned to asus in Dec 2012, returned to me in Jan 2013, then another 3 times returning to Asus for basically the same problems each time.
    I only started to record the videos in HOPE that it would help the TECH's, if your one, to resolve the problems. They, Asus finally replaced the unit with a used unit from corporate. That is the unit I currently have now, 9/2/13. That one worked good for about one and a half months, then started with the same issues. Returned it and Asus replaced the Mother Board. So, is the Digitizer on or within the mother board? Any of the last months you tube videos are of the unit they sent me with a replaced mother board. So, yes I have sent it in, have over 150 e-mails and yes they have attempted to repair it. On two occasions the first time I used it after they returned it, it Failed. By failing, it did the same things that I sent it in for repair. And yes I did a factory data reset before using it. In one of the videos they, Asus, returned the unit to me FedEx in an OPEN box. Not taped shut, just the flap closed. A $500.00 item that could have fallen out of the box, let alone been stolen by just opening the carton. Look at that video. So, what do you think? If all the videos are the same, should have been a easy fix. They are not all the same. Thanks for your reply, hope this helps you understand why I am posting this in the first place. $700.00 for the Eee Pad and Docking station and just Problems. Can't even use it.
    TBolt, hope you like this too..

    Considering I own both an Android Transformer Pad 300 and a Windows 8 VivoBook X202E (both Asus-made) and I haven't had any major issues with the VivoBook but have had some of the same kinds of problems people have described above with the Transformer Pad (especially after the Android 4.1 "upgrade"), I think problem lies with Android, not Asus.

    If you want to support Google, buy a chromebook.

    More amazing when running CROMi-X 5.

    It will be interesting to hear if the TF701 is remarkably better.

    I have just had a horrible experience. I have a hyper sensitive screen, yet certain parts of my screen do not work. My kids will play minecraft and the machine will build and destroy blocks for them, I will be trying to type, and my TF700 will type on its own. I finally had to disable the password, because it would not let me on. Any time I type, it auto types and then my device locks me out. If I have more than 10 GB on my machine, it is very slow, and the machine is completely un responsive. Apart from what I previous described, the GPS will turn it self on and off, the wifi will turn it self on and off, the device will auto power on and off, it will auto eject the usb cord so that I can not transfer data. While people claim that this is an isolated experience, I almost feel that their positive experience is the isolated experience. I know a couple others that have the same tablet that say the same things about their tablet. I actually do not know a single person that has this tablet that has had a good experience. ASUS no longer will receive a dime from me. I did send my tablet into them, they want $260 to fix it. It is under a year old. Essentially, if the machine is scratched they can deny the 1 year warranty. STAY AWAY FROM THIS TABLET IF YOU CAN.

    I agree - unless you're willing to unlock and load a custom rom on this baby. Then it's one of the best tablets available right now. Or buy the TF701 which is great out of the box and even better running CROMi-X

    I seriously doubt Asus will do anything more from a firmware update standard for the TF700. I've got to the point with that tablet running so sluggish and no luck unlocking the bootloader (despite how many gazillion times I tried running the unlock app only to get "network error" or "invalid password" (when I know I typed my Google password correctly, why would an unlock app need this is beyond me.) that I've abandoned it. Such a nice tablet too. Damn expensive one as well. So I replaced that expensive tablet with an even more expensive one: a Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. Off to the Samsung forums; time to get the "S" out of this thing, if you know what I mean.

    ohh !!!so sorry for you.... but don't blame entire asus..my new fonepad7 is cool worthy for a gamer like me .it's money saver for students like us and when compared with my friends Nexus it performs

    I don't understand way I should have to root and CROMI ROM (whatever that is) a $600 tablet before it's useable. Shouldn't it be usable out of the box?

    Yeah it should be. But what do you do if it isn't??

    I think the answer to that question is contained in the title of this thread. I didn't buy this product to become a hobbyist / hacker. I bought it to fulfill certain needs which based on its performance specs and price it should have been able to handle. It couldn't / didn't. I'll look elsewhere.
