hey you all. im shopping for a used tablet and I have seen a few of these TF700 and also tf300 going online for around $150 10.1 screen.looks like the tf300 is the lower model version


Just wondering how is the community going on here with these tablets? looks like its still going strong and supported!

Anything i should know about these tablets or should I stay away from these. seems like a good tablet for a good price and it also seems these tablets are pretty fast

Thanks for your advice and help!

they are fast for the first month, then go to utter ****. you will have to wipe it clean and fresh install your roms on it biweekly in order for it to be usable. the specs and price are tempting, but the track record of them sucks, avoid at all cost.

What about the ME302C asus? I can get one for about the same price. Specs look better and the tablet is newer

do you plan on rooting or romming the tablet or are you happy with stock?

Rooting custom rom

But I made up my mind. Im going to get the Asus ME302 instead of this. Seems better and same price. But i dont see a section for the 302 device (sad face)

there is a good chance that means there is no development on it, like roms... search for the modding process on what ever you buy before you buy so you don't get disappointed.

go ahead and get a class 10 sd card too then. apparently rom2sd is the only way to get these things to work but i haven't confirmed that first hand...yet.

With the right rom and data2sd (rom2sd is for dual booting - doesn't add anything to performance) the TF700 is a really nice tablet.
But check prices for the TF701. They've been coming down and even with the best custom rom on the TF700, the TF701 is MUCH better even on stock.
But then - the development community around the TF700 is wider, very active, loads of fun and deeply dedicated to make it the best it can be.
Much less going on in the TF701 forums and that it is pretty darn good out of the box probably has a lot to with it.
For the record: I own both and have been tinkering with both for close to 2 and 1 year respectively.
