Conclusion

For someone looking to save a couple bucks and still get a fairly well-performing tablet, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 is probably the best choice you can make if you like Android devices. With all of the features of Android 4 and only a few cut corners like the casing, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 is a solid tablet at an attractive price.

That's not to say that it is a strong contender for performance points like screen resolution or color gamut, but if you're just looking for a basic tablet that won't frustrate the heck out of you, the new more affordable Transformer is a good bet. If you elect to buy the keyboard accessory, you can treat it more like a laptop as well as enjoy better battery life.

Despite our praise, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 still suffers from many of the common maladies that tablets are subject to, like low screen performance, high reflectivity, and low durability. Still, compared to its closest competitors, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 holds its own.
