    My feelings exactly bf. interestingly, one of the articles Swipe posted - Nvidia Responds to Kindle Fire HD Performance Claims - makes exactly the same point. The SoC can be as fantastic as you like, but if the drivers are flakey then the best results are not available.

    My personal view is that - in common with everything we can buy - car, computer, TV, hifi, oven, heater - if you get a good one ( and 9/10 are good ones) everything is fine, but if you get a not so good one then you may well be disappointed.

    Well I will add my 2 cents worth at this point. I have had the TF101, TF201 and now the TF700. I use my tablets for business or 'non-gaming' 'non-rooted' activities. I have had zero issues with the TF101, a single GPS issue with the TF201 which Asus addressed and zero issues with my current TF700. I use my tablet as a replacement Netbook/Laptop for generally simpler activities and leave the heavy duty activities for my Asus UX31E Ultrabook with Windows 7 as its OS. I generally like to push my tablet use age to the limit just to see what the current tablet will withstand. Every OS update for each of my tablets presented me with no issues. All of the updates were done OTA as well as all of the smaller tweeks Asus did along the way. I find nothing wrong with Asus from my standpoint as a hardware or software supplier and will continue to buy their products.

    Re: Will Asus get it right with Android 4.2

    Tf700 have big lags, specially in browser. Tf700 works like a very cheap tablet.this is my third transformer(tf201,tf300) and it is a big disappointment. My hope is in new 4.2 jb. Really, they should work better on these updates.

    You and a few others may be displeased with the TF700, but they are still selling robustly in the US, and retailers are scrambling to get more stock to meet the level of demand. For "Black Friday" and similar holiday sales, the TF700 has only seen 10% discounting, when discounted at all. That's not my opinion, but based on conversations with buying managers at two major electronics retail chains.

    If thats a "total disaster" then you have been using a totally dictionary than most of the population.

    Believe or not, the sound of the cash register determines success, not the whining of forum posters. Right now, that cash register sound is drowning you out - and for good reason.

    I love my TF700, and I think its a lot better than anything else out there, but I think you are wrong about the sales part, the problem is, that Asus doesn't like to produce very many of their tablets, therefore they have a shortage every time a product is released, that is why retailers are scrambling to get them, because Asus doesn't produce them quick enough unlike companies like Apple who use Foxconn who have factories al over the world

    :-) I don't care about selling... it's just my opinion and experience about this device...

    I have been verry happy with my TF700 so far, it has run every app I have put on it and has not crashed once. I have noticed a couple of the flickering black lines but they have been so few and far between that IMO it would be silly to complain about them. I have not noticed any lag to speak of but I am the type that reboots fairly often.

    You are getting rid of a large majority of the problems with your last statement, this is the problem, android devices (and every other phone/tablet) are like PCs, if you want to get good performance you should reboot regularly and Windows still recommends a reboot after installing some applications to increase performance
