Asus Memo Pad ME172V

The product: 
The Memo Pad does include a microSD slot, something the Nexus 7doesn’t have; however, even at $60 more, the Nexus 7 is clearly the better product. It’s faster, includes the very latest version of Android, and its sharp screen can be viewed from nearly any angle -- not something the Memo Pad can claim.

The ME172V is aimed at people looking to save a few bucks on their tablet purchase, but the budget-conscious would be better served by

The Asus PadFone Infinity

The PadFone Infinity is a 5-inch LTE smartphone that becomes a 10.1-inch tablet when docked into the PadFone Infinity Station -- a companion accessory available at an extra cost.
The phone
The PadFone ships with Android 4.2 and a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor


What you should know: 
The good news is that the TAICHI is fairly thin, at 0.69 inch -- not bad considering it has not one, but two displays on board. That chassis is just thick enough that it makes room for two USB 3.0 ports, along with micro-HDMI, mini-VGA, a volume rocker, an audio jack, a screen lock and a slider for powering the machine on. Additionally, the TAICHI ships with a USB-to-Ethernet adapter, a micro-HDMI-to-VGA dongle and, on select models, a pressure-sensitive pen. Like other high-end ASUS machines, it even comes with a pouch for the adapters and a matching case for the computer, which wins extra points on account of its leather detailing, magnetic closure and slot for holding the pen.
What it offers: 
The TAICHI has an inventive dual-screen design with fast performance, wide viewing angles and decent audio. But we'd rather wait for a second-gen model with better battery life.
The advantage: 

  • Innovative design
  • Great viewing angles on both displays
  • Fast performance
  • Supports pen input
  • Good sound quality

The unfavorable: 
  • Short battery life
  • Interior screen doesn't support touch
  • Runs hot
  • Some touch pad issues
The price:

The Asus PB278Q

What you should know: 
The Asus PB278Q ($699.99 list) is a 27-inch PLS monitor, and it does indeed deliver very good color quality and wide viewing angles. It also offers a plethora of features, including multiple video ports, a multi-adjustable stand, and WQHD (2,560-by-1,440) resolution. It doesn't include any USB ports, however, and at $700 it's a certainly more expensive than a similarly sized TN-based monitor.

What it offers: 
The Asus PB278Q is a well equipped 27-inch monitor based on Plane to Line Switching (PLS) panel technology. You?ll pay more for this technology but receive awesome performance and a rich feature set in return.

The advantage: 
Great color quality. Lots of video ports. Ergonomic stand. Wide viewing angles.

The unfavorable: 
A bit pricey. No auto-pivot function. No USB ports.


The Asus PadFone 2

What you should know: 
The PadFone 2 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), with minimal software tweaks from Asus. This is as close as you can get to the stock ICS experience, although Asus has thrown in some proprietary apps such as SuperNote (a note-taking app) and WebStorage (for cloud storage). PadFone 2 users get 50GB of WebStorage space free, which is handy as there's no microSD card slot on the handset. I also found App Backup (to back up and restore installed apps and app data) and App Locker (to protect installed apps with a password) quite useful.

What it offers: 
The PadFone 2 runs on the latest quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and 2GB of RAM, which delivered zippy performance, even while multitasking. With an Adreno 320 GPU, graphics-intensive games such as Shine Runner ran smoothly without juddering.

The advantage: 
The PadFone 2 Dock Station features a 5,000mAh battery, which is utilized first when docked. In the "Intelligent mode" setting, the Station is even able to charge the PadFone 2 when it is low on power.
With heavier usage of viewing videos, playing games, and taking photos, the PadFone 2 still managed to muster up about 16 hours on its own.

The unfavorable: 
Browsing speeds are not blazing fast.

The Asus Vivo Tab RT

Another offer and advantage in computing, here is the Asus Vivo Tab RT. Experience the difference..
Measuring 10.4 inches wide, 6.7 inches tall, and 0.33 inch thick, the device is slightly shorter and lighter than both its Android counterpart and the Microsoft Surface (but to be fair, the latter does have a bigger screen). At just 1.18 pounds, the Tab RT is easy and comfortable to hold with one hand. But unless you grasp it with two hands, it does begin to weigh down on you if it's held for an extended period of time.
The keyboard has good build quality, and its design doesn't stray much from the Infinity's keyboard. We liked its sleek, dark chrome finish. Buttons are easy to press and sturdy, though we initially fumbled a couple of times with the smaller-than-usual shift key. On the right is a USB 2.0 port and on the left is a charging port. Through an included adapter, the charging port can become a second USB port.

The advantage: Asus' Vivo Tab RT features the Windows RT's elegant and refreshing user interface, has a bright and rich screen, and is equipped with a keyboard dock for maximizing productivity.
The uhfavorable: The Vivo Tab RT's keyboard is cramped, its operating system takes some time to get used to, and both its app store and Desktop interface are severely limited.
The offer: With its vivid screen, sturdy build, and sleek user interface, the Asus Vivo Tab RT is an excellent tablet in its own right -- but it can't beat the innovative Microsoft Surface RT.
