Default [Q] Newer build TF701t docks confirmed defect free?

I've seen posts that newer builds of the keyboard dock would have the connection issues fixed. Has anyone gotten one of these " 2013.11" or later newer build keyboard docks and can confirm it actually has the issues resolved? I'd really like to get the keyboard dock for my tablet, but don't want to deal with the issues of the broken keyboard dock.

So has anyone actually gotten a working keyboard dock from a newer batch?

Thanks!

My friend is getting one for Christmas. Unfortunately that means you'll have to wait until then to get confirmation from me.

I've had two docks now. I got the replacement on December 2. It's funny because I never had a problem with disconnection until I went to write a response to you OP. I can tell you that the second one seemed put together far better than the first, but it still has A LOT of wiggle room in it. It does not dock like the TF201 did. It has no support on the front. That is nice if you use a screen protector like I do, but like I said, it does have issues.

The primary reason I buy these tablets is because of the dock. I really hope Asus does the right thing here. I hated my tf201 because of the extreme lag caused by the i/o controller or whatever, and now this. Kind of a drag.

Was the "build date" number different on the packaging when you got the replacement?

I agree, the primary reason I got this tablet was the real keyboard dock for it. Seemed like a much better solution than the generic bluetooth keyboard docks I see on the internet. It's funny...always heard about the IO issues with this series of tablets...but dock always seemed to be really solid. The one time I actually go buy one...the IO issues are fixed, but the dock is now having issues.

On the transformerforum someone got a tablet with dock with production date 2013.11.
He reports that the flex is nearly absent and it connects more firmly.
Also the connection problem didn't popup.
Good news but now waiting for more people with the same experience.

I received my 6th keyboard a few days ago from Amazon. I was happy to see I finally got one with a manufacture date of 11/2013. I immediately inserted an SD card and tried moving the viewing angled. I did not see the SD card disconnecting and reconnecting so was hopeful.

Last night I noticed that the dock was not charging the tablet. I had to disconnect and replace the tablet in the dock 5 or 6 times before the widget showed the tablet charging.

This morning I tried viewing a video file on the external SD card in the dock. Changing the viewing and repeatedly caused loss of the data connection and the video player to crash.

Fail

I had the TF101 since it came out and was happy and had none of these problems. I now have had 2 of the tablets and 6 of the docks. I really want the TF701 to work for me but think I need to give up on this device find another option. I might try replacing dock or both dock and tablet again just because I want the tablet/dock combo and I am stubborn.
