Just ordered mine from Tiger Direct for $299. Will be replacing my aging but somehow still busy (development wise) Acer Iconia A500. Will be happy to lose the weight as the Iconia is a heavy one! Plus I heard the tf701 has a great screen! Hope it's true.

Just got mine today from tiger direct for $299 (plus tax). After the 4.3 update and some settings adjusted the screen looks great and runs great.
Glad I made the jump. Feels thinner but only slightly lighter then my iconia.

Great tab. Great price. Only thing that should have been different is the camera. A good sensor and a flash would have made it outstanding.

Will be sending some 4k videos shot with my note 3 to it to test tonight.

If the camera was able to shoot 4k in this it would be an incredible tablet.

Can't wait to try some games on it tonight!

I dunno since I don't have it yet, but I don't think it can play every game at maxed out settings at at least 30 FPS.* And games are only getting more graphically intense.


Yeah just bought one off Amazon for $223 "Like New". Can't wait to start playing around with this! Your great support for this device is one of the reasons I decided to buy one, thanks!

Performance, at least at 1600P, seems somewhat lackluster, around the same on-screen as my S3. And the device throttles far too often, further degrading performance. Playing Smash Hit at medium settings still has some lag. Dead Trigger lags even at low quality settings. Riptide GP still lags with scenary and shader quality set to low. Overclocking the CPU may not yeild much benefit, but overclocking the GPU just might, as would custom temperature throttle settings. Anyway, your ROMs are pretty nice though. Currently on Crombi-KK and loving everything but graphics performance.

You have a problem my friend ..... All thèse games work flawlessly without any lags. Stock résolution and stock DPI. Asphalt too.

All right restored a Nandroid of the older Crombi-KK from last month, and now performance is fine on mentioned games with maximum settings across the board. Asphalt 8 still lags like hell on "Very Low", but then again, it seems to do that on most devices when other high graphics games work fine. I think it's just badly optimized. Still would love GPU overclock, but performance degrading is a bigger issue.
