I myself am using the Acer Iconia A500 and absolutely love this device. I primarily use it for work and entertainment during down time but....primarily for work. Having a full size USB port was very important to my decision for choosing the Iconia. Before going with the A500, I did have the oppurtunity to use the Transformer.... Wasn't all that impressed with the build, or the simple fact that I had to purchase the dock to get the usb ports ultimately making the device more than twice as heavy as the Iconia (which seems to be the biggest gripe people have over the Iconia A500) and a fairly pricey netbook in the end with only one main advantage, extended battery life.

Anyway,,, it's apparent that in my choice to go with this particular tab, I have selected the underdog that gets updates last or questionable that it will get it at all. Also, rooting is required to gain more usage out of having a USB port and flash drives so one could transfer and edit files on the go.

Edit: Oh and a matte screen protector is a must for any tab if you plan on using it outside in direct sunlight. Greatly improves visibility by reducing glare and almost eliminates fingerprints.
