    Questions for the Prime! Ask here

    Hello! Since it looks like everyone is having shipping delays on their transformer prime tablet, I would gladly answer any questions about the prime. I've acquired mine on the afternoon of December 16th. The tablet is superb and I hope you all get your prime before Christmas.

    From a full charge, running on balance mode and auto brightness mode, I was able to setup and play with my prime for 12 hrs with about 20% battery life. Last night, I left a 1080p mkv movie playing on full volume and 50% brightness and was able to squeeze 8-9 hour playback. You can probably save more by using the "battery saving mode", lowering brightness level, and turning off wifi/gps (i didn't). Battery is superb =]

    Wifi runs the same or just as fast as a Samsung Galaxy Tab/Ipad. However, the signal on the tablet shows a bit lower levels than my other devices. They either have a better wifi signal detector or the wifi somehow lacks. I did run a speed test and compared it with the Ipad. They both show normal speeds...

    However, my cousin had a lot of issues with the wifi. It sometimes would give a timeout error or run very slowly. Google would take 10 seconds to load while mines took 1 second. We both received ours at the same day and upgraded to the latest firmware, but for some reason his transformer prime speaker lacked quality and wifi sometimes dropped a lot. As for me, I feel lucky that I never got a single timeout issue or dropped wifi. We tested the wifi at Starbucks and both of our houses which both ran Comcast. He brought his back to Asus, but I hope none of you guys will get a defective unit.

    that's cool thanks for that; how would you rate the speakers from 1 being bad to 10 being great. I read reviews complaining about there being only one speaker

    That sounds more like a request than a question.

    How is surfing and typing on forums using the stock web browser? Did we finally get rid of lag and overall bad web experience? How do you rate the web experience to iPad and Safari?

    I rate it 8.. It sounds like a decent laptops speaker. Here's my reason

    Pros:
    -Has moderate bass... you can hear/feel it and it's better than all the tablets I've played with.
    -Sound volume goes moderately high ... you can hear it clearly throughout my room.
    -Sound quality is comparable to my Asus k52JR laptop with its sonic master technology.
    -Has separate controls for different sounds... Alarm, notification, and media.

    With dock...
    -Bass is even richer and game experience sounds great when its on the dock.

    Cons
    -One speaker .. it's on the back right side.
    -My hand usually covers the speaker very easily when holding it. Volume levels change due to this.

    Even tho it has one speaker, it's definately better than the Ipad 2. It sounds very stereo like to me that it makes me think that there are 2 speakers in that one area...

    Yeah I've got a question... make a video!!! Seriously.
    Good idea even tho I think there are already some good videos out there on youtube :P.
