    Crazy ASUS BS

    greetings all...

    I have to say, my enthusiasm for the prime is starting to slide. I was all fired up and really looking forward to it but the little bits of news I've been catching here and there is putting me off.

    There's all the wifi rumours. Anandtech reporting about having 2 units with effectively broken wifi and only a third working review unit...
    Then you see this Asus says everything is fine PR.... then you read that in Canada Asus has admitted there is wifi problems...
    There's all the stuff about Amazon mysteriously cancelling their preorders supposedly to avoid disappointed customers, but why would they be disappointed if everything is right on track?

    Then I get the chance to preorder from the only place in the UK that is accepting preorders - Clove.

    Now I get an email telling me that Clove is withdrawing the product from their website "because of confusion over which models will be available in the UK upon launch"

    Why can't Asus at the very least be open about why preorders are getting cancelled. These drip-fed rumors just piss people off.

    A little more transparency from them would be great. If there are problems they should say so overtly, not let it filter out from an email sent from some Canadian rep who is no doubt getting reprimanded for his honesty. If only Asus was as good at PR as they are ramping up the nits in their SuperIPS panel.

    Firstly, I edited your Title and expect you will follow the Forums guidlines in the future. If your going to quote Anandtech then lets get it right. They said the first 2 units were pre-production and had WIFI issues. The 3rd is a production unit and the WIFI was quite acceptable as Asus had added a second antenna.

    Yeah as I suggested in my reply to that "must read to all you pre orderers"....

    screwing up release of the original Transformer is acceptable. they didn't know they were going to have a smash hit on their hands.

    doing it a second time with the sequel is a little less impressive... it's not like they didn't know there would be demand.

    What do we do when we have a hot new tablet to market? Why we make sure shaky rumors about broken wifi pervade the internet. We make sure some dodgy GL benchmarks surface making the iPad2 look superior. Finally we make sure preorders routinely get cancelled so our hardcore faithful early adopters get really fed up not knowing why or when the product is going to be available. Good job Asus.

    If your upset with Asus, your not required to buy anything from them. Still some will complain and still wait in line for a new shinny Prime. A bit hard boiled wouldn't you say?

    If you are into hardware as much as I am, you will know these sort of angry threads pop up all the time with every single release / upgraded / new model of anything.

    Even graphics card DRIVERS get dedicated threads with people ranting over AMD / nVidia's broken promises

    Companies are still people, people still make the machines that build these things - they are never going to be perfect first time - best you can hope for is for the company (banana) to make out its either a feature or deny it all together

    As Jeffrey stated, if it makes you that angry, spend your money on sedatives instead

    Just to inform you several sites in Norway have tested it and htey all gave 6/6. Not one of them reported about any WIFI issues, so cool yourself down a bit

    Then how come there was nary a peep from fanboys when they were handed an iPhone 4s instead of the 5? Instead of anger, they still have those dazed smiles, kneeling in adoration to Saint Steve.
