Pros
The dock and battery life
Cons
Pretty much everything else

I have had such an adverse experience that I feel compelled to share it. Within 6 months the adapter blew and I had to pay for a replacement (I met another customer today at the service centre with the same issue, interestingly).

At the twelve-month mark, the screen went. I was extremely gentle with my tablet, a casual user at best. I was informed that the original screen was faulty when installed. Either ASUS products have a short life-span, or they've allowed defective products on to the market - either way, this is an issue that seriously needs addressing, ASUS!

I have had mixed results with the service – some staff have been wonderful, some uninformative, some down-right rude. Particularly with the screen issue, I was given a lot of vague or conflicting information, which left me extremely frustrated.

I will seriously hesitate to consider ASUS again; and I will strongly urge others to reflect before purchasing.

I purchased this tablet last April 2013. Within 2 months I had to send it back to Asus for repairs. The screen had lines through it and the colors were faded. It cost me $25 for package materials and shipping.
Ever since then it has been one problem after another and things seem to be getting worse. The touch screen does not always respond. It tells me I have no internet connection. It freezes up. Icons disappear and I have to go search for them or uninstall and then reinstall the app. I have to manually refresh my data constantly.
Last week, I had to do a factory reset because the tablet suddenly kept rebooting over and over again. It was a nightmare to work fast enough to do the reset before the tablet rebooted. I lost important data and pictures because I didn't get the chance to back them up. Lesson: don't put anything of importance on the tablet.
Now less than a week later, I have to do another factory reset because the tablet will not charge using the power chord.. I have to attach it to the dock in order to charge the tablet up. This is ODD since the dock charges using the power chord.
I have been in touch with customer service EIGHT times in 2 days. No one can explain what is wrong with the tablet, nor do they solve the problem.
I am totally disappointed in Asus as a company. The tech support is worthless. They know nothing about solving any problems consumers have with their tablets.
I can't believe all of the good reviews and am starting to believe they are fake.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
