    Looks like I'm Returning mine.

    Used mine for 2 weeks before update to 3.1. Everything was good except I couldn't update; it just didn't work. Tech support twice was unable to fix it. I have reset to factory twice. I'm now on 3.0.1 and it says no updates are available.

    Bought it from BJ's online and waiting for a return label. I think I will get the Acer next. It has a few better features but is a little more costly - +$50. I like the Asus company better than Acer but both are getting good reviews.

    Hate to see you go but I totally understand. I got one of the first ones made so everything works great except a little lag so who knows, I might would be frustrated enough and do the same thing! Best of luck to you!

    Might I suggest exchange it for another Transformer? And then just use the open bootloader to run the 3.1 update yourself? Super easy, and no need to root.

    The only reason I say this is because my coworker has the Acer, and he loves my TF more. The screen is better, it's thinner and lighter, and just all around the ASUS is a better device, not to mention the optional kb of course! Yes the Acer has the full size usb on the tab, but that's the only leg up. IMO you will regret exchanging for it, and will miss your TF.

    I also like the glass and metal front. The Acer has plastic around the glass bezel which will be more prone to scratch.

    I thought the transformer has plastic on the front, is it metal?

    I agree with tylerg, once you get a good functioning Transformer it's the best. Take a look at the Acer Iconia forums or for that matter ipad forums. Their threads look just like this forum. It seems all the tablets have a lot of good and ugly too! Good luck on whatever you do!

    i always think it's funny when someone gets ONE bad one and then they decided that is it and go to a different company...

    Anyways, I tried the acer at the store before getting my transformer. It is a lot heavier and the OS just is not as smooth. Does not feel like a 450 dollar device.
    What other features does it have that are better?

    How about the Samsung 10? I had sort of wanted to wait on the 8.9, but glad I went with a 10 inch screen, as we have a 7 inch tablet already. I think the Samsung is really pretty.

    Hi,

    I just bought my transformer and I also cannot upgrade mine. it's sitting on 3.0.1 and states that no updates are available.
    I would hate to returns it (I agree that Asus ver. is better than Acer's)

    can someone give me some pointers on how I can manually upgrade it to 3.1 ?
    ( I can't find the upgrade sofware on Asus' web site)

    Thanks everyone
    dks
