Well mine arrived. The gray was not as gray as i hoped; it has sort of a sick purple overtune to it (the tf101 has a nicer brown back). The speakers are not very loud; ok those are the negatives - the screen is very nice; and it seems pretty smooth. I'll update later with more details after it charges. Oh yea the default player handled my set of 720p mkv (probably software decoded) without issues.
some more comments
- screen is super bright on max setting without ips+; holding it up to a window where sun is shinning in it is visible in ips+ mode but a bit of glear (this is direct sunlight)
- The speaker is only on one side of the tablet; set of grills that are easy to cover; still pretty soft on max if you hold it up to your ear definitely not that useful (acer wins here; even the tf101 was a bit louder)
- The tablet hangs when doing a lot of i/o (installing a lot of apps for example)
- very good wifi performance and very strong reception (picked up the hotel across the street; which my razr does not see)-speedtest more or less maxs out at 20mb/s both up and down
-I have a trip over the weekend which is when I tend to use a tablet the most so more comments next week.
-the speaker on the tf101 are much louder
-sound thruogh iem sound a little better than the tf101 (I use a161 which are mid/upper range)
-the cord is a foot longer than the tf101; the power adapter is not as nice (the tf101 the prongs fold in)
-the build is cleaner (but still a few creeps); the layout (ports is a bit stranger
so far the only major disappointment are the speakers; I though the tf101 was weak these are really bad.
