I am considering one of these for general web browsing / Youtube and gaming:

Does anyone have one and offer an opinion?
Ticks all the boxes and being from Asus should be kept upto date on the OS upgrades.

I got one of these at the weekend. This is my first tablet and as my only experience is the occassional finger stab at my daughter's smartphone I'm probably not the best to comment.

But I'll have a go...

I went for this as it appeared to be the Transformer Pad 300 without a keyboard and seemed an OK price. The Pad had just got the Android 4.2 update so hopefully ASUS are good at upgrading. The MeMo seems smooth and responsive, surfing is OK and I got Flash working with Firefox. I streamed some photos from my NAS - a bit slow but they looked good, video ran OK streamed too. The tech demo for the graphics is amazing - better than my PC.

So I'm happy after 2 days with nothing to compare it to

I've had the 201 for about a year now, it's been very good. Nice screen, good connectivity to other devices (USB, HDMI), regular software updates, generally stable....

I picked one up yesterday, and have to say very impressed so far.
Very fluid, good sound and feels very well built.
Will do a more detailed review once I have the time.
