So you took the plunge even though it didn't have the dual band wifi, huh? Any issues with channel collisions so far?

Yeah, like I said in my first post, my old Acer A500 wasn't cutting it anymore. Games I wanted to play wouldn't boot up or were not smooth. So I figured I'd try a Tegra3. The Infinity was getting great reviews with it's OC'd T3 at 1.6 GHz, so I splurged.

I haven't done any conclusive testing on the network, yet. If it can play a few TV episodes on Netflix of Hulu without buffering during the show, I'll be happy with network performance. I had some irregular operation since taking the firmware update, so I've held off on rooting and will likely make sure it's not something I did and will factory reset it to clean everything out. Although I think part of my problem is that I've accidentally hit the home button or the power button, as the bezel is smaller than my old tablet and the power button is in a different place and seemingly more sensitive than my old tablet, too.

Jer, the Netflix app is basically unusable on the Infinity, worse if it's in performance mode. My assumption is that it's some sort of a conflict with the hi res display, since the app works fine on a TF100. I'm hoping that the devs will do something to correct the problem.
I've not tried the Netflix website to see how it behaves.

Ah, I see. The Hulu app works ok, it seems (although I didn't test it for very long). And I'll likely try Netflix, anyways. Not that I don't believe you, but now I'm curious as to what the problem looks like.

I guess I could have been more clear, couldn't I.
The Netflix app loads correctly, you can log and it LOOKS great on it's home page.
However it doesn't respond to touches. You can't scroll through shows (or it scrolls VERY slowly), and I don't recall for sure, but I don't think I ever got it to start streaming a show.

I got it to stream a show just fine. Yes, the menu is quite laggy, but other than that, it works fine streaming a show. At least on my tablet.

I get the impression that a lot of apps won't be updated to use 1080p screens just because of the TF700T. It seems like you have to really grab the devs' attention to get them to really focus on a particular device aside from the Nexuses.

This is true, however I'm sure there are many 1080p tablets just on the horizon. Devs would be foolish to not start working on suitable FullHD apps.

Received my new Infinity this morning. Unlike the last one I'm happy to say this one works fine. The HDMI sure looks good on the TV. Works fine in the dock and the USB works great too. I celebrated my happiness by poisoning myself at McDonalds. I apparently forgot how nasty that stuff is.

At least you have your new infinity to take into the bathroom for the hours you're about to be spending there.

I finally ordered the tablet. Got the 32gb amethyst model. I even got the dock; I didn't think I would need it, but I decided that since it was the signature feature of the Transformer tablets, I should have one. Plus, I'm about to go on a long trip, and the dock will serve me well as a screen protector. And I think not holding the tablet while watching tv/video on the plane will be very comfy.

I'll post my review of the device as I get a chance to play with it.

Same thing ran through my mind before buying. The infinity is androids best tablet by itself, but the dock is what has made the transformer line so valued.

I got the dock, and glad I did. But when I use it I sometimes think to myself, why didn't I just get an ultrabook?

I simply don't need the computing power of a full PC when I travel. And at home, I have big workhorse desktops for my computing needs. My tablet is intended to be for entertainment and media/web consumption. Touch screen human interface is nice. Screen res is nice. Android OS allows for easy data transfer from desktop or from cloud.

YEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

i just got my new toy. so here is my story:
i originally took the plunge into the tablet scene when i bought my transformer prime and its keyboard dock. it was my first tablet and i loved it especially the keyboard dock. i started to use it more then i would my laptop, since most of my time was spent on the net. i took the thing everywhere i went. then one day, my stupid dog goes berserk and decides to charge at my when i was not looking and tackles me. well of course i had my tablet in hand and i thus dropped into the tiled floor. and much to my horror my screen shatters. luckily i had Best Buys black tie protection which covers accidents like this (THANK GOD FOR THAT!!!!!)

so today i go in to see what BB can do for me. i was worried that they would replace it with another prime. (to be honest that would have been fine). but apparently they do not carry it anymore. YEAH me and they told me that they could not send it in to get fixed as well YEAH me again They also said that they can replace the tablet with the infinity. YEAH ME but they do not have the keyboard dock yet as the tablet is still very new. Bummer me so anyways with my new toy in hand i went home and opend it up. i then connected the infinity to my prime's dock. and it fit and locked nicely. i powered the tablet on and tested the keyboard and it worked

it is fully charged now, and so far i'm really happy with it. my wifi connection soooo much better then the prime. gonna test this out more later, but i like what i see so far.

funny you should mention that. everyone should know about the old wives tale about bad things happens in three's. well today i dropped my evo 3d and it shattered. and no its not the dogs fault this time. the fault all goes to me. now i need to go back to BB and get it fixed. i'm scarred to see what the third thing will be hopefully nothing)

anyways. so i love the fact that i do not have to buy another dock as the prime's dock works flawless for me. this tablet seems faster and the screen is amazing!!!!!!!

netflix is buggy but it was the same on the prime, so i'm used to that. it streams just fine. is it me or is it heavier then the prime?

According to reviews, the infinity it's slightly heavier, due to the new screen. I never owned one though.

Well I am happy to say that my Infinity arrived yesterday and I was able to play around with it for a while. All I can say is WOW! This thing is amazing! Super smooth and little to no problems that I can find with it. I think I am going to be a very happy camper. I am so glad I decided to get this and not the iPad 3. I had an iPad 2 and this thing is night and day better.

Just tried the dock as well and it is sweet! I think I am in love lol. I just hope my wife doesn't get jealous....

For all of you waiting on this tab showing up at your doorstep it is well worth the wait and you will be glad you waited as I grew very impatient but in the end the wait was well worth it.

Finally gave in and ordered mine (32GB) and it should hit BB next Tuesday. It was a little cheaper at Amazon ($11) but I went with BB in case I have problems and need to return or exchange it. Taking it to a local store will be much easier than dealing with Amazon if I have an issue.

yep i totally agree with that. bought mine at best buy. the thing that sucks (sort of) is that they do not have the docks yet. luckily the prime's dock fits nicely on mine right now. what was cool was that the lady at customer service was going to do a warranty return for me (long story but see post# )and my dock and get me the dock for the infinty. but like i said they do not have them yet.

I bought a prime from BB as soon as they received stock early this year. After reading a post about people returning the Prime and BB swapping it for an Infinity I thought I would give it a shot 8 months after the purchase. To my surprise they swapped it no questions asked and I cannot be more pleased. I feel like I have the tablet I thought the Prime would be. I couldn't be happier!

I have the 'Infinity' dock and it says that it is also compatible with the Prime. I guess they finally updated the books to say "Prime/Infinity" instead of just Prime

It makes sense that they're compatible, the measurements are nearly identical and the Infinity is a Prime with some tweaks to fix the problems + better screen.

Been a long time since I posted anything, but I feel like bragging about my Infinity. I bought it at Office Depot, 64GB, with the dock, and a 32GB micro SD card, so I should be good for a while.

I also got the ASUS USB adaptor, so I can plug thumb drives and printer cables directly into the tablet if I need to. Wasn't sure it would work with the Infinity, but I decided to try it out anyway. Then I spent enough time transferring different types of files from my laptop to a thumb drive to the tablet to make sure it works. Nice option to have.

My new tablet is awesome! I thought about going to the dark side (they have cookies), and getting an Ipad, but since I have no other Mac anything, I figured as a stand alone device, I would be missing out on something in the Mac experience, and I hated that Ipod touch so, so, so much it left a bad taste for Mac with me.
Anyways, that screen is epic. Typing with the on screen keyboard is fine, the dock is even better. I tried to download and update every app I wanted the first night, thinking I could bog it down, but it was always done loading when I looked for lag!

I have a Tuf Luv case ordered for it as well, and will post about that when it arrives (around Sep 9).

ETA. My wife (completely non tech), has been playing with my tablet for almost 3 hours now. We may soon be a 2 tablet family.

I've been using mine a bit more (have earlier posts). The recent firmware update really has reduced the lag issue but it is still there and still a bit annoying. Also movies (2 hr movies) tend to consume about 20% of the battery using dice (these are 720p mkv h.264; not high profile which are more cpu intensive) so I can watch 2 movies and do a bit more on cross country 6.30 flight. wifi defnitely eats a bit of juice and the lag can be a bit annoying (I tend to open lots of pages in tabs and swap between tabs while other pages are loading (over lap reading time with loading time) and the infinity is not very smooth doing this; the excite 7.7 does a much better job here - no detectable i/o lag.
-
no random reboots; no force closes but my app usage is very limited (movies on the plane, browser/email on the ground - airport/hotel and such) and an occasional game (i need to find a better game ....) during long airport waits and such.
-
Oh yea and an occasional pdf file or such that comes via email.
-
I like the asus mail program and it is handy to have the doc/pdf readers available.
-
Other than $$$ the only complaints I have are the i/o lags and i kind of want more screen real-estate - maybe 12 or 13 inch. I might check out the excite 13 when it hits the local store.
--
I should mentioend that I played iwth an excite 7.7 (also tegra 3 but lower resolution) and it has none the lag I've seen on the asus infinity; it also has weak speakers but otherwise is very nice (good build; no lag; lots of ports).

Just got it today. First impressions are that it's a solid device, it feels pretty sturdy and well-built. Main gripes are the lack of JB (I imagine that would cut the lag by more than half) and the fact that after 8 hours of charging it's still not even half-way charged (though to be fair on the thing I'm not using the official wall charger, or even something similarly rated).

The screen is fantastic, too. I have no idea about the light-bleed criticisms, though - owning a Nexus, all I can say is that the blacks on every LCD ever are complete and utter suck in comparison. Still, the screen is incredibly bright, colours are accurate, it's high-res, all that sort of thing.

I would love it if Chrome could always request the desktop site - 10 inches is far too big for any mobile site. One thing to note is that in many cases, the lack of tablet-adapted apps is not a major issue. Why would you even want an app for Facebook or Twitter, when the full website works perfectly? Aside from the push notifications, that is.

Oh yeah, and there's no NFC. Minor issue, I guess, but it would be cool if I could initiate a wireless file transfer between my Nexus and the tab just like that.

Overall, it's amazing to have. I'm just waiting on being able to afford the dock, so I can well and truly stop stealing my mum's laptop.

Had my Infinity a few days now and all I can say is....Wow!

I came from a HTC Flyer. I change because I was using a tablet more and more and the Flyer was proving too small. Plus with the lack of updates it was quickly becoming outdated and losing value.

I was torn between the Infinity and the Galaxy Note 10.1 initially because I had really made my mind up that I wanted a 3G tablet so I didn't want drain my phone with the wireless hotspot. However, having had the Infinity in my hand there was just no comparison. What a wonderful build quality. I decided to manage without the 3G. This has actually turned out to be a non issue as I can tether using Bluetooth and I'm still getting good battery performance from my phone.

I'm in Thailand and the Infinity has only been available for a few weeks and the only version available is the 64Gb complete with dock. Works out around $800. Don't know how hat compares with the USA and Europe.

So a few days on and I'm still playing around getting it set up how I want. Battery life seems pretty good. I expect it to improve over the next week or two as the batteries get cycled. I was initially missing HTC Sense but managing just fine without it.

I am so far really impressed. It's fast, I haven't experienced any freezes or hangs so it's so far so good. The only thing I was missing was the cursor keys on the tablet virtual keyboard. I searched out a few alternatives but wasn't impressed. Then I found Hacker Keyboard in Play Store and have to say it's really good with the bonus being it is very much more like a full PC keyboard very customisable. I'd recommend it for any Android 10" tablet.

Well, it's early days and I'm sure I'll be hanging out in the forum to pick up tips and share anything of interest.

Cheers.

Just got my 64GB unit from Amazon yesterday - a big improvement over my Xoom tablet. The display is so much better and it is definitely faster. I love it so far - no problems yet.

Interestingly, Amazon just posted the following "Item under review" note for this unit:

"While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here."

The JB update addressed my complaints with the speakers; now they are super loud.

I never posted in here - but I bought my 64GB unit (with lapdock) on 5 Sept 2012. Initially I had no build quality issues, but after playing Bard's Tale for several hours, I can see some of the points being made - there are creaks when certain areas of the screen are pressed, and the left side of the lapdock also clicks out of and back into place. That game has also caused my Infinity to reboot several times while playing - game will freeze, then 5 seconds later the Infinity reboots.

Other than that, though....wow. battery life on standby is amazing. Connected to my home WiFi (with the WiFi extender being on the other side of my bedroom wall, so great connectivity) I left the combined unit off the charger for 3 days with sporadic usage - every time I came back to it the lapdock battery had barely decreased, and the tablet battery was always at 100%.

I'm really, truly glad I opted for the Infinity instead of the Note 10.1.

Now to find a damned good case for both that lets me easily remove the lapdock for tablet only use.
