I hope you guys are subscribed to this thread. According to an engineer there are two versions of the Prime. One version, the old version that I don't think was meant to ship has the BT issue. The second version has no such issue as I am told.

Help me build a database of bad devices so we can determine good and bad batches.

can someone let me know if there is a problem with pairing to bluetooth headset, WIFI on (but not using internet) and watching a video stored internally through media player.

The current Vega tablet I have causes stutter on video with the above scenario, but not sure if the problem with the Prime is just with using the internet at the same time

thanks

I have varified that when i run my tablet on wifi i get 9752kbps DL speeds
at the same spot with BT on and connected to my head set and playing music the dl speeds are 363kbps.....thats a huge drop.

So i also ran this test with my HTC evo3d DL speeds were 6160 wifi no BT and 736 dl with wifi and BT.

Also did this test with my friends HTC EVO (OG) dl speeds were 7165 wifi no BT and 4168 dl with wifi and BT.

So to me it looks like this is a regular issue with BT and wifi in the sense that you take a DL speed hit when on wifi and BT connected but.....

363kbps with wifi + BT on the tablet....thats the worst score and just about 56k modem speeds.

Im not sure if this can be fixed with with a software up date to balance out the wifi VS BT signal. so im dont want to high jack the thread but anyone else run this test on any other devices? .....apple products as well?

Well, I finally tested this out using my BT speakers and both my Galaxy Nexus and Transformer Prime. The TP is messed up. My Nexus streamed music and downloaded at about 10 Mbps, while the Prime crawled at about 0.25 Mbps while streaming. Do the problems ever end with this tablet? Does Asus actually employ real engineers? Unbelievable.

64G Prime
I just received my 64G Asus Prime and of course I checked the Wifi+Bluetooth 10m away from the router, connected with 100mbit fiber, and with 3 120mm gypsum walls between. Tested with speedtest.net android app and the tablet placed flat on granite counter and running Honeycomb (ICS not avaliable, and yes I have a serial but that didn't help)

Wifi on + bluetooth off (3 run average)
Upload: 21 Mbps
Download: 13 Mbps

Wifi on + Bluetooth on (3 run average)
Upload: 24 Mbps
Download: 10 Mbps

Wifi on + Bluetooth on and paired (3 run average)
Upload: 14 Mbps
Download: 10 Mbps

Standing 2m away from the router, no walls:

Wifi on + bluetooth off (3 run average)
Upload: 28 Mbps
Download: 33 Mbps

Wifi on + Bluetooth on and paired (3 run average)
Upload: 14 Mbps
Download: 15 Mbps

After turning Bluetooth off it takes a little minute before you can reach full speed again.

turning BT on isn't the real problem, for me, it wasn't until i got an external "sound" source (bt headphones) that the problem "showed up"

is it just me, but why are the upload speeds so Hi...usually higher than download speeds, i notice this on all my speed tests....
