Just updated now and im typing this on my ics tf101 one thing is that they keyboard lag is gone or atleast alot better, the tablet is much faster and for some reason the screen looks sharper maybe cause all of the os just looks prettier anyway its a must to upgrade. Just go to settings and touch about tablet and check for firmware update

Oh yeah, btw there's yet another update out for the Prime as of today; .15 firmware OTA update.

Also, someone was asking about ICS for their Asus Slider, but I can't seem to find the thread. If you see this, Asus says they are planning on releasing it for it, but no solid date, as per their Facebook page:

Jeff Daigle For the slider too?

ASUS North America ‎Jeff Daigle the slider is coming next, just no date set yet

Your experience is even more of a surprise to me since I own other ASUS products and never had issue with them. Maybe I'm just lucky with these things and the Transformer will be no different? rolleyes.gif

Im just unlucky, I've had 8 separate devices over the past 6-7 years that have had dead pixels on the screen. I honestly believe I'm cursed.

My only saving grace has been that I work at the place I get my stuff from so getting it sorted is a bit easier for me, for example ill be getting them to sort out the RMA for my prime instead of doing all the leg work myself. No point in getting in exchanged because A. Its my second tablet in the first place and id rather not risk a 3rd new unit with the potential for some other problem, and B. Theres no stock in the UK to exchange it with anyway.

Rather get it repaired, I love the device, Im currently typing this out on my aging macbook and I keep trying to tap the screen thinking im on my Prime cus ive gotten so used to it lol.

Like you I've used ASUS components before in builds and sold countless ASUS machines to customers before and had few problems. I'll give them one more chance with the Prime I think, either repair or replacement. If that doesn't work out then I'll get it refunded and wait for the 700t model later this year. Currently the design doesn't look as nice but they will have had more time to work on it.

Its upto you wether or not you get the current prime, If you can goto a store and buy it then I would say do that and ask to open it up and check it there. That way you can save yourself some hassle if you do happen to be as unlucky as me tongue.gif

http://www.overclock.net/t/1219992/og-asus-transformer-16gb-dock/0_30

ask away if you have any questions
post #236 of 501
Hey everyone!
I am getting the Transformer soon and I would like to be able to watch some DVD's on it when I am on long journeys. What are the best settings to convert DVD's to a Transformer compatible file type in handbrake? I mean what profile to use and what resolution etc? If anyone has a preset specifically for this, I would love it if you could share it biggrin.gif

Already out. I made the mistake of installing ICS on mine, which is rooted. Bricked it. I was able to bring it back with Prime 1.4. Anyway, long story short I installed an ICS pre rooted ROM. Works fine.

Oh, and first thing you need to do when you upgrade to ICS....Install Chrome. It's still beta and the only negative is that it wont default standard web pages yet. But that's coming. But it's so much better then the stock browser or Dolphin.

ARHD is a cooked ICS ROM that was released last night
post #240 of 501
So...I just updated to ICS last night on my TF101--I'm not noticing a lot different from Honeycomb other than a few stock widgets have changed, and the "settings" layout is different (a bit more intuitive).

Anyone care to share their ICS upgrade from Honeycomb experience, in case there's something neat that I'm just not noticing or realizing?
