Purchased October 2016, experiencing Wi-Fi connectivity issues. Device
reports connected but can not access internet. Rebooting re-establishes
the connection but appears to be short-lived.
Absolutely rubbish. Had the mainboard replaced and battery after 2 months. Another 2 months later a new mainboard was needed now it's over in holland being tested because I could not get it to turn on. Been told no fault found. They doing tests again. Been told can't have the tablet replaced until fault found. The tablet was only brought in March this year. Been with out the tablet now for 4 weeks in total while repairs been done and testing. Still waiting for the problems to be sorted and issue sorted once and for all. It's only six months since I brought the bloody thing and wish I never brought it. Maybe it will get sorted by the time the warranty runs out, however I won't hold my breath.
Don't buy one stay well clear unless u are the owner of Asus and u deserve all u get.
What i can say...go really slow. Web pages takes nearly 30 seconds to load sometimes...average games work slow, and the big ones don't work at all.
Restart after 5 min using facebook...sometimes playing games or locking at movies. Restart for no reason
camera is useless
I expect much more from asus.
sorry for my broken english

Tyr sound quality is superb but video quality is shite. It staggers, fragments, and goes in slow motion; several frames short of normal play. I am taking it back to Curry's-PC World after the Bank Holiday; for a refund.
I use an asus zenpad 10. I had a question that if I use my tablet, will it be damaged?
Zoomtank99 , 17 Jun 2016Are you an ASUS employee? Just face it like everyone else, it's a crap! Since the Transfor... moreabsolutely. I'm really, really disappointed. The tablet is pretty much crappy out the box, and does not get updates basically at all. Interface zenui is full of bugs, in addition of being slow and laggy. Even loading web pages takes forever, because of a tottaly underpowered cpu that renders the pages slower than my old htc froyo smartphone. But it's not over, the worst news are about the wifi connectivity. Connection falls basically everytime the screen is turned off. If the battery saver is forced not to turn off the wifi, it stills falls after browsing 3 or 4 pages. And again, ASUS released this device promising updates, the last one of which is several months old and did not repair half of the bugs. Hope to get 5.1 is rapidly fading away, along with any will to buy ASUS devices anymore - very likely, unknown chinese vendors sell better devices in EU these days.

Just face it like everyone else, it's a crap!
Since the Transformer Infinity TF700T, all Asus tablets are some trash, laggy and hard responsive, unable to get prepare for an update after one year later since launched!
I got this at a heavily discounted price. Its a little heavy but I'd say it feels more solid than most other tablets too. It has a quality ferl about it. Its fine for everyday use and most gaming, but lets face it, any serious gamer wouldn't be using an Android tablet anyway.
It streams and plays movies smoothly, the audio is nice, clear, sharp and crisp, with good levels of bass.
I've not experienced any of the other problems mentioned in these reviews, so I presume either they are tlking rubbish, possibly reviewing a product they dont actually own or they cant perform effective routine maintenance & clean ups in their tablets.
Its not lagging or slow to boot up. The screen resolution is pretty decent, good enough to edit NEF RAW files anyway.
The battery life is pretty decent too & doesn't take forever to recharge.
THE ONLY DOWNSIDE... is that the optional DA01 audio dock/keyboard is completely unavailable anywhere on the internet at this time.
Its even unavailable from ASUS, at this time.
Hopefully its just a manufacturing issues, and we'll see them soon.
You could hust buy a generic Bluetooth keyboard from eBay, but the matching ASUS one would be nice.
if you can buy one at a discount price, they are well worth the money.
This tablet is way to laggy in everything even right now when I am writing this
Really low performance comparing previous generation MemoPad I own. Even with 2GB memory and better processor. Laggy, problems starting up, weights more.
You can find better options for sure.
Might be the intel processor is not optimized yet for android.
Massive let down my Hudl was quicker but too slow so I bought this crap instead, 4 mins to start up then video crashes games too slow just rubbish.
I´m sad with this tablet.
Wifi signal is lost all the time and ASUS does not respond about upgrading to marshmallow.
jdion, 22 Feb 2016What cpu speed do you see when running cpuz?the real speed is max 900 MHZ, not 1.2 as you find on all websites.
This is my 2nd ASUS z300c. The 1st one had issues with Wi-Fi connectivity.
No troubles with number 2. Very good with games and video. Good solid design with high end specks at a budget price. Highly recommended.
Cris, 18 Dec 2015Has anyone gone through some majour issues? How smooth is it? My ZenPad 10 has had a few problems. Keeps going into standby for no reason, on test at moment after a factory reset. Font colour and bold changed somehow but could not change it back another factory reset. The tech support is not very good factory reset is their solution.
I have had this 2 months and I am on my third factory reset, when I had an Amazon kindle probs it was replaced without question, as you can guess I won't be buying an ASUS product ever again.
Cris, 18 Dec 2015Has anyone gone through some majour issues? How smooth is it? It's best tablet, screen and audio. Truly satified with this.
Cpu is underclocked. I have major speed issues.
Everything is going slow, like a computer from 2000
Actually they were fast compared to this tablet.
I honestly say, if this zenshut tablet gets broken, or shattered i will not feel bad.
Im really pissed with the speed, and can't root also!!!
I had tried Z300CL which is basicaly the same tablet but with beefed up CPU and different video chip. All the rest applies. Screen resolution is way too little (so as the DPI) for this size of tablet - small and even medium sized fonts gets blured out causing eye tension. Front camera is pretty good for 2M shooter, but the rear 5M is a complete disapointment and is not practicaly usable. I also found the screen rotate sometimes does not doing its job very well. A few times it had to be rebooted just to make the screen rotate work again. Other than that its pretty snapy device to use and nice feel to hold. Considering that this was one of the better tablets I had tried in that price range, I'd save +25% and go with either one of the hi-resolution Samsung Galaxies for Android or older iPad Air for the best screen readability.
