An exciting new entry in the race! Exceptional value and freatures, March 23, 2014

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

The Asus VivoTab Note 8 is clean new entry in the Window 8.1 tablet market. It has a lot to offer at a very compelling price. It comes boxed with a charger, micro-USB power cable, some printed doc, a quick start guide, warranty, help info and a license for MS Office Home & Student 2013 edition. It also features a stylus and Wacom digitizer built-in, a nice 8 inch IPS spectacle, and very decent battery life and performance from the Intel Atom Z3740 Quad-Core 1.3 GHz CPU. All of this comes at a very aggressive price point (a year ago tablets of this nature were promotion for 2-3 era contemporary pricing!). If you are in the market for a Windows 8 tablet, this unit is certainly worth consideration!

The 1200×800 8 inch IPS spectacle has a tall vertical (portrait) or wide screen format, depending on how you position the tablet (3:2 aspect ratio). It’s plenty sharp, nice for videos, and the text is sharp. The resolution is a pretty excellent match for the spectacle size, keeping text large enough to be readable. The built-in Wacom digitizer features 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. The stylus will activate the screen from as far away as an inch or so and the palm rejection is very excellent. The stylus really is useful, works well, and is a certain plus for this tablet. (And it stores conveniently in the tablet itself as with Samsung’s earlier models, which is certainly the aptly design choice.)

The included license for Office is a huge plus for those who need it, especially at this price point. The included One Note also seems to work very well and might even be more useful to many. In my early tests, I was very impressed with the hand-writing recognition (conversion to text) functionality. Much better than I expected.

The tablet looks excellent to me (not snazzy, but fine) and the back has a nice soft feel to it. The front is pretty much the same as most others – black, shiny bezel and screen. The power button and volume buttons are also pretty predictable, but did have a nice feel. One odd note is that the Windows “Start” button is on the edge of the tablet rather than the front. I’m not too sure about this design choice. I might get used to it, but I really liked, for example, the B&N Nook’s HD+ drug simple to use front button. (So I frequently “swipe-in” from aptly to left to get the Start screen rather than using the button).

The tablet is honestly light and simple to hold, though the 7 inch size tablets are a small simpler to use with one hand, the larger 8 is better for video and productive work, I reckon. It’s the “sweet spot” for me, anyway, (I loved the Toshiba Excite 7.7″ which also worked well for me). The 8.9 inch models are better for watching videos, but harder to hold and use for any lengthy period of time.

The spectacle is very nice to my eyes, having excellent contrast and sharp insignia (and being plenty sharp as mentioned earlier). I’m not obsessed with resolution and the resolution seems perfectly fine to me for this size spectacle. Certainly, everything appears sharp and clear.

The Intel Atom Z3740 CPU performs very well and in use the tablet feels quick and snappy nearly all the time. The 2 GB of RAM seems ample for most purposes, more would be better, but I did not notice any major problems in normal use. You will experience some slow down if you try to do too many things at once. This is a tablet, not an ultra-book, after all. One area to note is that the included 32 GB of domestic storage is nearly completely consumed by the Windows OS and apps, so you will need to add a 32 or 64 GB micro-SD card for storage if you plot to do any real work on this thing. [Update: I installed a 64 GB microSD card. In PC Devices I then configured this as the default storage place for Music, Pictures, and Videos.]

So far, battery life seems aptly at the claimed 8 hours (Update: I reckon there’s a mistake in the highlights programmed on Amazon for this product where it indicates 6 hours, I believe 8 is right as is shown in Asus info later in the listing.) or even better. I reckon you might easily get more if you are conservative. I can easily go all day lacking worry. For rare use, you might go a week. At any rate, 8 hours or better is very excellent. Most tests I could find online seemed to confirm this. The included charger is a powerful 2 amps and the unit charges using a standard micro-USB cable which is nice. Thumbs up for no proprietary charging cable needed! (Charging time seems to be around 3-4 hours, even though they recommended an 8 hour early charge before use in the quick start guide.)

I have not tested the cameras extensively yet. I don’t use tablet cameras that much myself, these seem to be about mean in my cursory use.

Early set-up was a breeze, much simpler than earlier Windows tablets I’ve tried, due to the fact that numerous post-setup updates were not needed to get everything working correctly. In this case,…

This review is from: ASUS VivoTab Note M80TA-C1-BK 8″ Tablet with Integrated Professional Wacom Stylus, 64GB (Personal Computers)

UPDATE: October 6 – About 6 months after purchasing…

I LOVE THIS THING!

I’m very glad I got it, but I honestly wished I’d gotten a Android Tablet instead. Any frustration I feel is not with the device so much as it is with Windows 8x. Its quick, sleek, and it looks decent enough… but getting things done on it takes longer than it should, because you’re fighting with the OS to try and figure out how to do what you want…. things just seem simpler and more reliable with Android. OneNote, the app I use the most on this thing, now supports Ink on the Android version of the app… so an android tablet with a pen is MUCH more appealing to me now…

The pen problem isn’t completely gone. It happens a lot less than it did, but there are era when it goes out for no apparent reason, which can be irritating. Most of the time, resetting the driver (Device Manger – disable driver – re-enable driver) fixes it. When it doesn’t, it’ll usually come back after a bit and a reboot or two. I’ve heard rumblings with there being a hardware/design issue causing the problem, but I can’t confirm that. My experience has seemed to indicate its a software issue, still.

The battery life is awesome! The Wi-Fi works quite well, and the screen seems sharp enough for what I need it for. Its proven a worthy device, and I literally have used it every day in view of the fact that I got it. I rarely bring my laptop with me anymore.

UPDATE: August 15 – About 4 months after purchasing…

I LOVE THIS THING! Even more than I did last month, because I reckon I’ve figured out the “Pen not working” thing.

IT IS NOT THE VIVOTAB’S FAULT. When I had a “ISVO Slim Smart Cover” on the tablet, I would have to reset the pen driver nearly every day to get the pen working again… I called ASUS help, and they had me try all sorts of things. I went to my “IVSO Asus VivoTab Note 8 M80TA” Detachable Keyboard cover, and the problem was gone again. THE SLIM COVER USES MAGNETS, and that seems to affect the pen’s ability to function. I noticed the “margin anomalies” were worse, and the pen would stop working far more often when using the cover that had the magnets to hold it shut. The detachable keyboard cover uses a flap to hold it closed, and literally everything about the tablet was better.

The driver doubtless still needs work, and a ‘Windows Update’ happened days gone by, so its likely that it will eventually be fixed, even with the magnets in the way, but for now, if you avoid the magnets, then you should be excellent… I certainly was!

Did I mention that I LOVE THIS THING? If I could add a star, I would. I literally use this thing every day, and it has replaced my laptop completely. I’m VERY glad I got it, and I’ve recommended it many era. A couple of friends really have picked it up, and they are enjoying it also… and yes, I warned them about the cover/magnet thing.

Jim
———————————————————————

UPDATE: July 18 – about 3 months after purchasing…

I LOVE THIS THING! I literally use it every day.

A problem developed after a Windows update (THAT NOW SEEMS FIXED). My pen stopped working intermittently. I eventually noticed that the driver stopped working. A call early on to ASUS let me know that they were aware of it, but didn’t have a fix at the time. I binged and googled it, and came up dry. I figured out that if I disabled the driver and re-enabled it, the pen would work just fine… until it stopped again. Its been working for a even as now (I reckon the last reset was last Saturday), so maybe its fixed, but I wanted to place it here so folks are aware of it. I don’t reckon it is hardware related, but a driver issue, which means that a future windows update will fix it (which it might already have done).

I want to say again… I LOVE THIS THING. I was concerned when the pen thing first cropped up, but now that I know its software related, I’m not too concerned, and that problem might already be fixed. It really does get used daily… to take notes at work, to take notes at church, to check facebook, to read books on the kindle app, to watch movies, to do whatever I used to do on my laptop, my Kindle, and my android tablet… I even travel with a smaller bag, now, because its the only device I bring with me on trips (well, except for my phone).

I Heartily recommend this thing, and if this one ever gets crushed, stolen or lost, I would get another one lacking hesitation.

And now… check out my original comments from a week or so after I bought it:

Bottom line up front: this is an incredible tablet.

Certain advantages over ipad and preferable to android, March 24, 2014
By 
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)
  

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
I have used both Android and iPad tablets and this is my first Windows tablet. I didn’t expect to like it in view of the fact that rather Apple at this point. But after just a few hours I am becoming a fan.

This tablet really is more of a small PC. A tablet generally lacks full-featured programs that you use on your laptop. This tablet runs the same Office programs that you run on a regular computer. So you don’t have to compromise on functionality for portability. That is a HUGE advantage over regular tablets to me-especially Android in view of the fact that that is not a mainstream desktop os at this point.

Though both Android and iPad have Apps that can approximate Office applications, Neither works as seamlessly as an actual PC /macbook.

The thing that makes this tablet really incredible is the Wacom stylus and the ability to write genuinely AND have that handwriting converted to text with a high degree of reliability. In fact, this entire review is written in my hybrid script/cursive handwriting. And it has translated every word flawlessly. This means for the first time, the tablet can be used for natural and quick note compelling at work or school.

the hardware on this tablet is very limited. Applications run slowly compared to a full sized PC so this won’t replace your PC. But you will like being able to just pull this out and jot down a few notes and have full access to your email and software you use everyday.

I wish it had -wireless LTE capability. Then it would really be the perfect mobile device. But it is pretty accurate as it is.

Be sure to jump for the 64 Gb if you can in view of the fact that with the full 0S, you only have about 12 Gb left for your data. You can expand the room with an SD card but if you like to Carry lots of music etc, you will constantly be shuffling data and files around.

I like my Ipad. But this may make me switch — particularly in view of the fact that I have to use Windows for work. The windows app store is still lacking compared to Apple or Android. But again, in view of the fact that you can run real PC applications you don’t really need Apps to the same extent.

This tablet is certainly worth a look if you really want a device that marries the best features of a pc and a tablet.
