Bought this to compliment the Bose 301 Speakers and Yamaha center channel speaker that I have hooked up to my home theater system, and was not disappointed. The speaker is very clear, with no noise or hiss that I can detect and it puts out enough base to rattle the room and to make the cats jump. Excellent sound for regular HDTV, HD movies, and games on the 360 and PS3.
First off, and I can't believe I'm still having to say this. Don't pay more than the MSRP for this device or any device for that matter.
That being said, I did not get my Transformer Prime from Amazon, but rather was given one as a gift (they told me it came from Staples).
I mostly use the device for work related functions, checking email, browsing the web, and taking notes during meetings. But there is some entertainment value added to it as well, such as games and watching videos. I've had mine now for about a month and I couldn't be happier with the device.
I like the quick settings button, as I am calling it, it is a nice touch to quickly change the screen brightness, turn on and off wifi, and change the performance modes right from the bottom toolbar.
I have had no problems with Ice Cream Sandwich, but I have no basis of comparison since I chose to update as soon as I recieved the device.
To finish, this review is mostly about the apps. I love the apps that came pre-installed from Asus. I've connected the cloud storage to both my work and home computers and as long as I am connected to the internet I have access to my files and other things. I also really like that it comes with Splashtop remote desktop for free. I connected that to my work computer and couldn't be happier. It allows me to access software and applications on my tablet that I may not otherwise be able to connect to. Lastly I enjoy the Supernote app that came installed. This app allows me to not only type out notes, but I can write directly on the sceen and it will appear in the notebook. The organization features that allow you to create notebooks, and pages is also fantastic. (And let me say I am addicted to Zen Pinball, and some of the other Nvidia suggested games for the tegra 3 processor).
I was already convinced before I saw one in real life that I wanted to get the transformer prime based simply on the hardware presented. But had I known how useful the pre-installed apps were going to be I would have attempted to get the prime much sooner.
I love this latte machine!! Since I bought it a few weeks ago, we have made at least 50 lattes/hot chocolates in this little baby.
it's fast and the lattes are simple and easy to make. I just love it! The hot chocolates are delicious too!! I would recommend this to anyone who is a latte fan and doesn't want to spend 25$ a week at Starbucks!!
