    Buying Asus TF700 off French amazon

    Hi folks,

    I'm thinking of buying a new asus infinity tab next week from amazon.fr They seem to have the lowest price in Europe. The only thing is that you're getting AZERTY dock with it but I don't really mind. I'm a bit worried about the screen cracks and I'd really like to avoid it as in the country where I live (Spain) getting all risk insurance for tablets bought abroad is impossible. Are there any things I should specifically focus on before deciding to keep the tablet? What should make me ask for replacement? Are there any good and bad batches?

    Greetings

    Welcome to the forum.

    Spain does not sell the tablet? If you're worried, why not spend that
    extra money and buy from Spain and then IF something happens, you
    can be assured it'll all be okay? Bad batch? Hurm, I don't think so,
    but the more experienced ones may lend a hand with this question.
    You say "Keep the tablet" do you already own it? Thinking of returning it?

    Peace!

    well, here in Spain it's 200 euros more expensive than in France not mentioning the availability (almost impossible to get) I haven't bought it yet, I was just thinking if there are any known flaws that may cause future problems (eg. screen cracking)

    If you drop it it may crack. I have my TF 2 years now with No issues.

    Screen cracking only seems to be an issue if you buy the dock. If you do have to buy the dock - in the UK for example, you can only buy the 64gb combo as a forced purchase - then the best advice is to only open the closed combo by holding the tablet in the centre of the device, not from either of the corners. IMO most cracks (other than from clumsy handling or accidental damage) are caused by the device being twisted as the closed combo is opened. The pressure against the connecting parts then places stress on the screen at those points.

    That said, it does appear that this is less of an issue on the tf700 than it is on the tf300 because the tf700 is metal, whereas the tf300 is more flexible as it is plastic.

    If you don't want the dock, then other options, available more locally to you, may well become more attractive.
