I have ridden bikes for 10 years now and I am now around mile 40000, so how does this bike compare to real riding, very nice thank you. I can ride the tdf bike for a few hours - try that on a trainer (good luck). TDF bike features, you can select compact cranks,regular cranks or a triple crank set, you have a selection of 7 or 8 back sprockets for good measure, the cranks are very smooth and use the standard metric 6004 ball bearing set (yes you can install ceramic bearings. The bike lets you coast down hills if you desire.
Ifit, this is where you set your weight - this is important - because if you select you weigh 300 lbs, you won't be able to turn the cranks on a 12% grade the bike really has some strong magnets, I love it because you can adjust the ifit weight to make the bike feel just like going up your fave-rate mountain. Ifit you can make a map, lets say in the Canary Islands using google maps within the Ifit web page, Google has some really nice HD roads overseas, you can watch these roads on your computer as your ride them, I have a hook up so I can watch my ride on a 58 inch plasma (I Love it).
Features - Standard Polar Heart Monitor Receiver, Standard Pedals, Standard Seat Post.
I really almost rather ride this bike then my own, I just love seeing these beautiful roads, I have been exploring France.
Yes, there have been some issues with this bike - my console was bad, they sent me one promptly so all is well.
Purchased from Ebuyer on 12th, received on 13th, OTA firmware and ICS upgrade without hitch. Top notch performance, wifi excellent both near and far from router (wifi matches my SGS2), GPS outside house locks, inside is hit and miss (only rarely use GPS, SGS2 works for me). Excellent build quality, gave my iPad2 to missus but she wanted the Prime instead after looking at it! Yes, a lot of people have issues and they have my sympathy. Apple brings out crap products too, don't forget "antenna gate", at least Asus acknowledges the issues, doesn't ask you to hold the tablet in a particular way. Dock is great, screen is good, I am happy overall. I own several Powerbooks, Macbooks, iPods, iPhones and an iPad2. I think Android is maturing rapidly and I have switched back to Win7 and over to Android. Competition does work!!
Update 24 January:
Unfortunately I had to return it due to 4 separate pixel defects (one was a 3mm bright white splotch, other 3 tolerable) plus random reboots after updating to ICS. Ebuyer collected, checked, confirmed and refunded without the slightest quibble. Great dealer and great looking product but QC issues became apparent a few days after use. So first impressions are not always "lasting" impressions at least in this case. To be fair, I then purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad tablet from another dealer, got scammed with obviously used item instead of brand new and still waiting for refund.
Gone off android tablets for a while, wouldn't touch "fruit company" products with a barge pole now after many years of toeing the line, had enough of form over function. I have ordered a Samsung series 7 slate now, double the price but if the new build SS7's are free of QC issues, I will stick with it. I am glad the majority of people getting the ATP now seems to have trouble free product. I do a lot of writing and MS OneNote has served me well in the past and I know it will continue to do so now on the Slate despite trade-off in size/weight/battery life. I really hope QC is good!
I absolutely LOVE watching the Grammy Awards and this album was not only a great purchase because of the hot songs but even more because it's a piece of history I'll always have! I wish I had a Grammy Nominees album from every year since I was born. The booklet that comes with this album is super, too! If you love Mainstream Top 40 Music this is a must buy for sure....even if you don't...it's still a must buy just to have a collection of music that will now always be in history!
Initially, I was somewhat wary of Android but after weeks of research I decided to buy this tablet. It came with ICS - Android 4.0x, 32 GB version. I won't boar you with the beauty and aesthetics of the unit - it lives up to all of that. The speed of the tablet is unreal (Tegra 3 - 4/5 cores). It is so fast to respond to screen touch - no lag. I have not experienced any issues with the wireless network coverage that seemed to plague some of the earlier units - so these later units seem to have addressed the issue. There is a massive amount of applications available. I would recommend buying a stylus - just saves the screen smudging and makes selecting small text easier than using fat fingers. Here is what amazed me : I switched it on, fiddled around with some of the features and looked at "Mynet". It discovered all my DLNA devices - like the Windows media server and my Bluray players. So I picked a movie clip from the server and when I went to play it the TF201 asked if I wanted to display it locally (on the tablet) or on my Bluray player. I selected the Bluray player and the TV burst into life. It's awesome!
Why I like it more than the iPad. Like the iPad it's aimed at end users / the consumer market - but the TF201 can be extensively customized. The cameras are great - just dragging the focus area around is so cool. Movie playback is crisp and clear. Screen handling is fast and responsive and zooming in is just the usual process of pushing fingers apart. I had preconceived ideas that I would not want to use it like regular PC - but I have been using it like a tablet - and for everything else I would use a PC for - including video conferencing on Skype. If you want to type long winded reviews then yes, use a PC or get the fabulous docking station (just ordered it). It folds flat, extends battery life to 18 hours, has 2 USB slots and a standard sized SD card.
Although the 700 model is due out with it's incredible higher res screen sometime (higher res than the iPad HD)in 2Q you won't be disappointed with the TF201 which already has a beautiful screen.
Eco-System : iPad has a much bigger after market for accessories in retail stores. Having one current model makes it easier to produce standard sized accessories. You may struggle to find accessories for Android tablets in retail stores because each device has front / back cameras, memory slots, connection ports, etc in different locations - so cases in general are device specific. However, there is a wealth of accessories for the myriad of Android tablets like this Asus tab on-line.
In summary - Android is so user friendly, rock solid and flexible. The Asus' power and performance makes it a winning combination. I have bags under my eyes - staying up so late - I can't leave the Asus alone!
Update July 3. We were so impressed we bought another one to stop the arguments about who gets to use it.
