I was in MSY today and they have them in stock too. If you read the link you can type in your own product key. I can safely say I vouch for these stylus. I called yesterday and they said they didn’t have them yet and weren’t sure when they would arrive! I haven’t used the Galaxy

Problems with m80ta 8 dl004h z3740 note vivotab 64gb asus bit

In concluzie, va pot spune ca aceasta tableta isi merita toti banii si ca nu exista o optiune mai buna pe piata in acest moment. Normal ca n-o sa se compare cu un i3, Dar ar trebui sa se descurce mai bine decat zici tu acolo. As M80ta have a special inspecition system, we can only maintain the power power no add and no reduce when OTG. My digitizer never lasted more than a day’s use before fix, but it is now going strong for a week straight. On the previous pages where i listed the ebay clones of the IVSO cases for this tablet mine arrived and fits perfectly Hi Fury, Thanks for the update.

A se vedea tableta high-end Transformer TF care era limitata de storage-ul extrem de lent pe care l-a ales Asus. Poate e vreo mizerie de aplicatie din suita ‘Asus’ care iti foloseste CPU-ul mai mult decat ar trebui.

Normal ca n-o sa se compare cu un i3, Dar ar trebui sa se descurce mai bine decat zici tu acolo. Poate, repet, e o problema software. Lag-uri constante aveam si eu pana cand am dezactivat BitLocker.

E un feature simpatic daca ai de gand sa-ti fure cineva tableta la un moment dat si sa nu poata accesa datele, dar in acelasi timp mananca destul procesor. Dar da, eMMC-ul ales de Asus cam lasa de dorit Intr-adevar, Windows merge mai slab pe un Atom quad core decat Android pe un Snapdragon quad core.

O fi cumva din cauza diferentei de arhitectura dintre x86 si ARM? Stylusul mergea genial, pana cand intr-o zi, fix cand desenam, n-a mai mers. Din cate am citit pe net, s-a ars digitizerul Wacom.

Sa vedem cat de prietenosi sunt cei de la garantie in afara de chestia asta, i-as da un 8. Am muscat si eu si am luat tableta asta. O am de 2 zile, mi se pare bestial stylusul in desktopul clasic.

Singurele probleme pana acum sunt faptul ca sylusul nu merge prea bine intr-o zona mica fix sub camera sensitivitatea digitizerului e proasta acolo, daca trasez o linie si trec prin zona aia se subtiaza ca si cum n-as mai apasa la fel.

Am inteles ca e din cauza stylusului, am vazut pe net recomandari pentru stylusul de pe Surface Pro. A doua problema e faptul ca nu gasesc o husa sau o carcasa TPU. Dupa cat timp ti s-a stricat? Pe net am vazut ca media e de 30 zile.

Ma bazez pe asta sa ma pot afla inca in perioada de retur cand se strica. Surprinzator primul comentariu, mai ales ca si eu detin aceasta tableta de aproximativ o luna de zile. Cu siguranta acea tableta despre care vorbeste are un defect, altfel nu-mi explic.

Va recomand sa intrati pe forumul tabletpcreview unde sunt zeci de posesori de Asus Vivotab Note 8. Pana una alta, o sa va confirm eu cateva lucruri: Nu este necesar sa mergeti la service pentru reinstalarea sistemului de operare pentru ca exista optiune de recovery.

Sistemul de operare ruleaza foarte rapid, fara nicio problema. Actualizarile de sistem de instaleaza in cateva minute, nici vorba de 2 ore. Este acceptat card microSD de 64GB de atat am eu. Teoretic, nu ar accepta unul mai mare, dar practic sunt sigur ca se poate rezolva cumva.

Cat despre comparatia cu Android si Nexus 7, pot sa spun doar atat: Detin in paralel un Nexus 7 si va pot asigura ca Note 8 este cu mult mai stabil si rapid.

Cand pun tabletele una langa alta, Nexus 7 mi se pare o jucarie foarte proasta se misca foarte foarte greu si prost in comparatie cu Vivotab Note 8. Cat despre jocuri, desi nu am o pasiune pentru acestea, va pot spune ca am testat si ca aceasta tableta se comporta surprinzator de bine.

Jocurile optimizate pentru interfata touch se misca perfect. Aspecte pozitive Asus VivoTab Note 8: In concluzie, va pot spune ca aceasta tableta isi merita toti banii si ca nu exista o optiune mai buna pe piata in acest moment.

Daca vreti tableta doar ca sa intrati pe Facebook si sa va jucati Angry Birds, ramaneti la Android! Insa, daca doriti o tableta cu adevarat capabila si performanta, care sa reuseasca sa inlocuiasca in mare parte un notebook – luati Vivotab Note 8 si nu veti fi dezamagiti!

Salut, Am si eu aceasta tableta si cele mai multe dintre “problemele” mentionate de tine sunt “by design” in acest domeniu de ex “un singur port microUSB” – pai la ce tableta ai vazut tu 2??

Are tot pe partitia de recovery, se reinstaleaza foarte simplu de aceea ai o parte din spatiul intern deja alocat Tableta mea nu este deloc lenta, chiar se descurca admirabil in aplicatii variate chiar si din suita Office – Outlook, Word, Excel si chiar in multitasking si jocuri din Store.

Acum nu ma astept sa fac encodare video cu ea, dar in mod office este o surpriza deosebita. Daca spui ca la tine sacadeaza, ori este o problema cu tableta ori ai instalat ceva nepotrivit care consuma multe resurse sacadarea si autonomia de doar 12h in sleep conduc catre asta.

Iti recomand sa-i faci un fresh reinstall si sa vezi daca te ajuta. Salutare, De cand a revenit din service, a mers “blana”. De vreme ce digitizerul se afla pe placa de baza, mi-au schimbat-o cu totul.

Placa noua pare sa aiba un eMMC mai potent. Nu mai sacadeaza deloc, chiar daca uneori e lenta. Una peste alta, in afara de digitizerul cu probleme, n-am ce sa-i reprosez. Intr-adevar, colturile le citeste gresit din stylus, micsorand practic diagonala utilizabila pentru desen Dar daca e sa o comparam la pret cu tabletele dedicate Wacom, iesim destul de bine.

Tableta asta e perfecta daca esti corporatist, deci e numai buna pentru tine. Te asigur ca nu am nimic “nepotrivit” instalat pe tableta, nu am deloc programe care sa ruleze aiurea in fundal.

Singurele programe care ruleaza sunt cele standard cu care a venit. Se poticneste de fiecare data cand citeste sau scrie pe eMMC. Iti multumesc pentru comentariu. O duc la service.

Unde ai dus-o la service? Nu chiar, dar pe-aproape. Asus are service international din fericire, asa ca am completat formularul de RMA de pe site-ul Asus. In cateva zile a venit curierul sa o ridice de la birou in UK.

A fost gata in mai putin de 2 saptamani, cu totul cu transport. Eu iti recomand sa dezactivezi BitLocker si sa incerci un full wipe in prima faza. Simplul fapt ca se misca incet nu prea e treaba de service.

Dar repet, s-ar putea sa fie de la bitlocker. Merci, acum pot dormi linistit, ca m-ai asigurat tu ca nu ai aplicatii “nepotrivite” pe tableta. Incercam sa-ti dau o recomandare. In tot cazul, cred ca te-ai prins ca esti singurul care vede atatea nereguli cu tableta aceasta, deci ai sanse sa le rezolvi cu reparatia la service.

Sper ca ai si rezolvat pana acum. Suporta win pe 64 biti? Comunitatea pasionatilor de hardware, overclocking, modding si cai putere. Salut, te sunam noi? I’m not really bother by the screen res difference as it will be easier to use on the asus and less demanding on the atom chip also.

US release is on end of Feb, we’ll probably see it sold in Aus sometime after that, so 2 month wait. Good to see it’s being made and sold. I’ll wait for a local release given my experience with asus tablets in this price range being faulty on numerous occasions, I don’t want to risk buying from overseas.

I’ll give them a chance with this tablet but will give up on asus if history repeats itself and maybe give the venue 8 pro a go. Oh and here is another site I had forgotten about this but I stopped reading after the third repeat of the above.

Obviously they aren’t the same model one compared a non digitiser variant to a digitiser variant. In any case I am impressed at the local price. Not quite the alleged price but for a proper stylus and windows product that’s still solid value assuming Asus have improved things since the botched launch.

Also note that the price is pretty close to the Note 8, wow! Who’d have thunk it? So I called Asus today, got connected to their home base Taiwan? Called local JB but not surprisingly they had no clue of release dates.

However — Scorptec Vic called their stockist and confirmed they have the 32Gb model in stock, no grey import, proper Australian stock with Australian warranty.

Can get it in days. Likewise, proper local stock. Said they only stock the 64Gb since the Windows recovery partition takes up too much space. Rather curious since apparently the tablet comes with an 8Gb microSD with the recovery partition on it.

I’m after the 64Gb model but would prefer a bricks and mortar store like Scorptec in case a return is needed. EDIT 1 hour later: They said they’d have stock mid next week, so about Feb 12th.

Contacted them through online chat, and they confirmed that it is in stock, lets see if they do indeed send my order on monday next week Scorptec emailed me a few minutes ago and said that although they have the 32Gb available, they can’t get the 64Gb model because it’s either not released in Australia, or some other re-seller has the exclusive rights to it.

I tend to agree. Has the power adapter got an Australian power plug? Very excited to know. Will order one if it has. Just pick one up from DigitalStar, it is on charge at the moment.

Looks ok out of the box. How is the display? What sort of Wacom pen do you get? Is it a tiny internal holstered one like the Note 8 or a full sized pen like the TFC? I really want one of these as well.

Talked with Harvey Norman but they don’t have a clue, neither does JB. The screen is fine for what I have used it for and what I intend using for, mainly as a notepad and web browser, with the occasional reviewing of MS Office and PDF docs, I have tested a non-HD movie and it was great.

I did have an issue with the screen not rotating after all the Windows 8 updates were applied, it was easily fixed by selecting the manual windows update and installing the optional updates, there were about 5 so I am not sure which one was needed, I was just happy it worked.

My only downside so far is the lack of accessories, I would have liked to have been able to grab a case for it. I’ll be buying my Note 8 later this week and a case will be the first accessory to hunt for as well.

Let’s keep tabs here what we find locally. Of course, I can’t vouch that any of these work with the Note 8, so maybe keep an eye on the Tabletpcreview for comments there.

The screen is fine for what I have used it for and what I intend using for Thanks for the writeup! One other thing, how much bloat was Pre installed and how much free space did you have?

I take it it didn’t come with the recovery Micro SD like has been mentioned as that supposedly only comes with the 32GB model. I would say the build quality is ok, it does not feel or look as good as the Apple, but it is acceptable.

The Windows button on the side takes a little getting used to, I think it would be better to have it on the front. Thanks for the info. Still surprised these are on the shelf as soon as they are Might have to order one.

I called yesterday and they said they didn’t have them yet and weren’t sure when they would arrive! Anyway, I picked mine up from CentreCom today but box is still unopened until after work.

Check the list at http: One day in and all is great with the Note 8. Pen and palm rejection are great, as is to be expected with Wacom. But just like not-a-clue, definitely need some accessories ASAP, particularly a case.

The odd location of the windows button doesn’t bother me since I use right-hand-swipe and select it from the charms. Only issue is lack of pen accuracy on the left hand side, but I can live with that.

Turns out PLE have them though, looked yesterday and they didn’t. Might pop down during lunch and grab one: Just received it from digitalstar today, installed office and hearthstone etc, pretty happy with it so far.

Is anyone having the digitizer issues emerging on a few YouTube videos in relation to a ‘distorted’ zone on the edge of the tablet the side with the Asus logo? Thinking they are just isolated, but wouldn’t mind hearing about digitizer performance.

I haven’t seen the ones on YouTube, but seems like there is a very small amount of distortion along that side of the display. Certainly no worse than any other Wacom digitiser display I have used, in fact checking around all the edges it is probably one of the best if not the best.

Will try it out tonight with my Motion Computing pen and with the felt nibs, both of which are a lot nicer than the one that comes with the tablet though handy enough in the silo.

Have been playing around, overall seems really good. Plastics are a bit meh, especially around the joins. Set up office, Light room PS how to avoid auto correct kicking in on words it doesn’t recognise?

Very happy, much speedier than my iPad all round. Set up Bluestacks as well, its a bit buggy, not much else to say there. I have just drawn using WACOM pen and a ruler to test it out, the line do get distorted by about 2 to 3 mm into screen around ASUS logo, the distortion is gone about 1cm in, other edges seem ok.

Yes, I get the distortion too, along the ASUS side and the camera side, ie left and right hand side in landscape mode. My ruler test was probably even a little more extreme than in the youtube vid, but goes away about 1cm in like with ravescar.

But the question is whether it really matters. For OneNote I don’t write all the way to the margins anyway so that’s no issue. In portrait mode in Desktop, there is a mm distance between pen and cursor position and so I’ve found I do have to pay attention carefully when using the pen to select icons pinned to the taskbar.

My fingers are actually more reliable than the pen at selection there! That being said, I haven’t done any sort of calibration yet so I’m hoping it may improve. Or else I’ll simply make the taskbar icons a little larger after finding out how — option in 8.

I used it off and on all day at work yesterday, wireless connected all day, reading documents, a little annotation. So nothing too heavy. Does anyone know if you can get the recovery media elsewhere to gain some extra space on the 64gb model?

I haven’t done any sort of calibration yet so I’m hoping it may improve. There is a way to force it to have LOTS more calibration points for a far more accurate calibration than the standard.

This is usually very very good for fixing corner and side issues compared to the standard calibration tool. How do you get it to have lots more calibration points? The usual calibration is in the corners, but it’s along the edges where the bigger problems lie.

You can change those grid points if you want to, they should be for number of pixels on the display so this was a x display. You can set how far along X an Y each line is basically. Enables you to do much tighter patterns along edges and corners where problems usually occur.

Worked well for me on a number of devices, haven’t tried it yet on on the M80TA though. Red lines are after point calibration Green lines are with standard 4 point calibration Blue lines are with calibration reset to default.

The blue lines on the left and right are a little deceptive, since they should have been further out from the edges — the lines were consistently closer to the edges than the pen actually was. Don’t worry about the gaps on the left.

I couldn’t write over the Drawboard page counter and zoom buttons. On another issue, has anyone found a reasonable case yet? I think in the interim I’ll just get a cheap sleeve from Officeworks.

Some people have talked about the Note 8 fitting in your pocket but you’d need to be bigger than Andre the Giant to have pockets to fit it. Yes, can’t think of any reason why not. Only one I found so far is: Both from same company, getting ivso one for now, estimated postage delivery time seem slow though, ordered today and delivery date march 3 I couldn’t tell from the photos whether there is a hole in the case for the pen.

All reviews on the page are for other tablets. Let us know how it is when it arrives. T mi5 writes I didn’t check out of the box, but after installing Office and a few small metro apps I have So I know most of you here already know that you want this device, but for those of you who are unsure, take a look at this article: So the following has appeared on Amazon: I was in MSY today and they have them in stock too.

Anyone with information of a good keyboard? Better still if keyboard can be also cover for the tablet. Below two links not sure if both same item or is the same one on previously shown Canadian video of the tablet.

This tablet is a fingerprint magnet, it is so bad that it makes me think i have been eating greasy burger. Got to a mobile repair shop and got someone cut Ipad screen protector to size and applied it, the edge is a bit uneven but now much better fingerprint wise.

Any of the ‘tablet PC’ type ones will work. Cintiq and Intuos ones won’t. Though had a weird bit of triggering when trying to calibrate for some reason.

Since I’m unable to test one of these in-store I was wondering opinions on this as a device for a uni student. I’ve got a desktop at home for all my assignments so I’m looking for something to have lecture slides on that I can highlight, make notes, study language with I study Chinese and Japanese so handwriting would be handy for character study, etc.

Basically I want to replace pen and paper, remove the need to print lecture notes, and so on. Would you recommend it over a Samsung Galaxy Note I’m evaluating it at the moment for using OneNote to make notes on meeting papers, pdf’s etc, so pretty much the same as your needs.

The advantage of OneNote is that you can search your own handwritten notes, and the handwriting recognition is pretty amazing since my handwriting is awful. So far, I have two issues: Something like the Surface but not so bulky, and with This can be really annoying when taking fast notes.

So although I’m reasonably happy with the Note 8, I’m still on the lookout for a 10″ device. I haven’t used the Galaxy Ideally I’d like to have the Windows environment so I’m holding out for MWC to see if anything that really hits the nail on the head is announced.

I wish Microsoft would make a surface with bay trail for reduced weight and portability. So far I am very impressed with the device, no issues at all with the stylus. My daughter is using this to take notes at school college and create artwork for her graphic arts classes — she is rapt with it.

More real-estate for the art would of course be beneficial she uses her laptop to refine her work, however she finds the 8 inch form factor gives here the mobility and ease of use, especially for reading, that she really needs.

However trying to access Asus Support is impossible for me. The device urges you to register for your warranty support and you can fill the form in but it times out trying to submit. I have not been able to fully test the card yet but when trying to access Asus Support to see if there are any updated drivers for the card reader https: It would have been a killer device.

Like you I am holding out for a Wacom Been waiting a long long time and I’m not sure it will ever “surface”. But one can only hope! I think on the start screen if you search update it will be one of the first apps if you open it it will load to the desktop and you will see the icon in the notifications area you can click on and click check for updates.

Thanks, I’ll give it a go when I can next pry it from my daughters hands. I usually have to wait and hijack the thing when it’s put on charge! My experience with the ep was fantastic, but it was a little ahead of its time in that there were no docking technologies for KB avaialbe it was the first product device asus released after showing off their Transformer book concept.

The wacom stylus was amazing to use and the silo was a godsend. Unfortunately the processor chewed too much battery and even with windows 8 its still sluggish I took it to work and scribed notes with it everyday and it was fantastic to use given the amazing hand writing recognition of one note and the native MS pen input keyboard.

However with the 12″ size and hefty weight and low battery, i was constantly tethered to an AC outlet. When the surface pros came out, i was really excited but the plasticky cheap wacom stylus without a silo and still chunky size was disappoint.

When dell released the venue 11 and 8, i was excited finally to have an ultraportable thin tablet with all day battery and stylus. Unfortunately the DVP8’s synaptics hardware is an absolute crock of Sh1t.

The touchscreen is buggy and double taps and the stylus v1 was buggy and you cant even order the new one. So for those wanting a 11″ sized tablet with stylus and kb, this is a good option because you can get it in a thinner Atom variant that lasts longer in battery and is lighter and cheaper Just be wary of the stylus.

The Venue 8 pro is a great size. I feel that comfort wise 8″ is the perfect size. Although i do occaisionally miss the larger screen size when browsing and watching media.

I also own 2 last generation asus TFcs which are transformer books running windows and have a pen. I have used mine for work to take notes and review documents my sister uses the Tfc for uni and for art.

The bonus keyboard dock extends the battery and she can do more accurate tasks like excel documents, which is more difficult in tablet mode even with a stylus. Though I am happier with the M80TA now for it’s portability.

Sold the TFC for more power and got the T Samsung, so happy with the M80TA the Samsung has gone and I cannot believe how much computer and it is a real computer is packed into this tiny tablet.

Hi, just wanted to post a resolution to this encase anyone else strikes this. In my case it was simply a mater of uninstalling all SD controllers and restarting to allow Windows to re-install.

Any word on when this device will be coming to JB or Harvey Norman? I would really like to test the device out before buying it. I have plaid with the first generation and new generations quickly and the obious tests like scrolling on home screen, browser etc.

It was night and day different the first gen felt acceptable but laggy the new ones you seem to be alot faster. I think Asus have gone exclusively channel with this model for now so no mass merchants.

Were are you located there should be some stores with display or you could contact Asus and ask them to find a store with a demo model. The poor pen calibration on the sides of the screen has been increasingly driving me nuts and I’m sending the Note back to Asus for evaluation.

Even though I’m 10mins from a Melb service centre it has to go to Brisbane. The service info person asked me whether I have tried recalibrating it. I said I did the 4 point calibration a few times, and then a point calibration that made it much worse.

Those you you with the Note, how are you finding writing near the edges? The worst edge for me is the edge where the camera is. Student who’ve used tablets with styluses before, how useful do you find it for making notes and etc on pdfs?

I ended up jumping on the Galaxy Note Writing notes on pdfs is fantastic, definitely can recommend a wacom digitiser for such tasks. If 8″ screen is enough for you, grab this puppy and enjoy.

Diggy the Wombat writes I’d be mad to get the Galaxy Note 8 over the VivoTab, particularly at this price, correct? I don’t think you’d be mad choosing either of them over the other.

Both of them are going to do the job of annotating PDFs just as well as each other. The question for you should be more of whether you will be able to take advantage of Windows or Android more for other tasks that you may want to do on the system.

I actually have both the Vivotab Note 8 and the Galaxy Note 8, and both have their strengths and weaknesses. The Asus is a more powerful package all round, but the Samsung has a much better implementation of the stylus.

With the Galaxy you can use the pen to do most things on the tablet, including navigating menus etc. Dragging between screens on the Asus moves the tiles around, making the pen feel a little tacked on.

Small text is also much easier to read on the Samsung, which is surprising since they are about the same resolution. The main reason I want the pen is for lecture notes.

I also like the idea of running Windows apps and games with this. I use a Windows 8 PC day to day and used to own an Android tablet. I have no OS preference. So some questions for you if you don’t mind: Going to test this for you now on my Galaxy Note Well it is terrible in this app.

All apps do it differently depending on the developers. The implementation on this app is awful. If I place my hand first and then start writing it draws a line from where my hand touched the screen to where my pen touched the screen.

That may explain the bad reviews from a few people. Most apps have the option to disable touch detection and use the pen only, except where it detects multi touch, such as 2 finger scrolling etc.

Other apps work with ignoring the palm much much better than this. I’d avoid iAnnotate personally. The Surface unfortunately has abysmal battery life and is more unwieldy but otherwise is the better machine.

Well that’s a little disappointing. I guess S-note is totally fine though for PDF annotating? I remembered on my old Nexus 7 that most PDF readers other than iAnnotate lagged lots, which was strange given the N7 had decent hardware for its day.

What about on Windows tablets? Is there better support for palm rejection on desktop apps like for example Bluebeam? The battery life seems similar. I have the phone version of the Galaxy so that tends to use more battery than the WiFi only version.

The Galaxy feels much more pen-like. The stylus has a spring-loaded nib which makes it feel less like hard plastic on glass. I loved iAnnotate on the iPad, but the Android version is pretty crippled.

I’m actually using Acrobat on both devices and find it to be better on the Galaxy. The greatest strength of the Asus is that it comes with Office. I’m a university lecturer and use powerpoint extensively, so being able to create and edit on the go is great.

On the flipside, the Galaxy is designed to be a mobile device, whereas the Asus still feels like a desktop OS that is slowly being transformed into a mobile friemdly device.

Indicative of this is the hassles involved in getting Metro aps to recognise content on a SD card. I’m a uni student and I’m happy enough with it that I’ll use it for all my lectures this semester.

I’ve noticed no lag in writing other than what is normal with a digitiser when writing. There is always a tiny tiny bit of lag. However S Note does lag switching pages but so does EzPDF which is a paid for and extremely popular pdf app so I guess it is just something to live with.

It won’t affect you writing notes but if you’re on page 2 and want to get to page 10 then it will take longer than you’d be used to on a PC for example.

On the Galaxy Note 8 you will have a different version of S Note to me though so performance may be difference, in fact the older version of S Note is superior.

That’s good, I’ve already purchased it, another reason I’m considering the Note 8 is because I have a bunch of paid Android apps. I think ultimately the Asus will be a better productivity device, but it’s not there yet.

Thanks so much for your useful post! I’m still torn as to which one to get though! I love the idea of a Windows tablet that seems to be more powerful, can play some PS2-era PC games on the train, and better if fewer tablet apps — I mean, Facebook for Android for instance is awful on a tablet.

I got mine from Centrecom, which seem to have a few in stock at various locations. The thing with PS2 era games is that they have to be optimised for touch controls, which most PC games aren’t.

So there are many that just won’t work without a keyboard or joystick. That’s good but I’m in NSW though. Yes, I was planning on giving this https: But you’re right in saying that the Android game library for touch is a lot better, and it has good emulators too.

I would mostly be using the tablet for uni and for reading annotating textbooks and lecture notes is high on my list, seeing as most ‘work’ I do requires a desktop CAD etc.

But thinking of all this, 1 use case above all would be web browsing. I ask because my old Nexus 7 really did suffer from some awful lag when surfing the web.

But I also feel that your musings on the stylus’ feel are not to be ignored. Keep in mind that a you should be able to use any quality Wacom compatible stylus and b the nibs are replaceable.

The stylus implementation on Windows is generally better and can be used on far more apps than the ‘tacked on’ Samsung implementation I’ve had a Galaxy Note 8 and many many Wacom enabled Windows tablets dating back nearly a decade — I keep coming back to Windows and couldn’t sell the GN8 fast enough.

I found beyond the built in ‘S-pen’ apps on the Galaxy Note 8 there was very little that took good advantage of the styuls and those that did generally only worked within their own silos, as with most ‘tablet’ stuff, what you do on there isn’t immediately transferrable to a full sized computer.

I am sure this will get better as more apps take advantage of the stylus and more manufacturers make Android devices with stylus support, but Windows has been implementing stylus support for over a decade and is supported on a core level.

But different people have different needs, thus far the Asus Note 8 is the best tablet device I have used though the build could be slightly nicer. I found beyond the built in ‘S-pen’ apps on the Galaxy Note 8 there was very little that took good advantage of the styuls and those that did generally only worked within their own silos.

This is what I was afraid of. I don’t want to be locked into half-baked Samsung Apps and not be able to use my PDF reader of choice, for example. But on the ASUS the stylus should work decently in any Windows program that has a ‘pen tool’ and palm rejection is automatic right?

What I need is essentially what you are after I believe, I simply need to take notes on lecture slide pdfs and other general pdf documents, take notes in digital notebooks, write quick memos, access internet for looking up information, etc.

The current Android apps available meet those needs, some are by Samsung, others by other developers. Everyone is going to have a different opinion on what is better, hell even following a thread over on xda about the best note taking app for Android sees completely different opinions despite people having tried the various offerings.

People here, no matter they have had both the windows and android tabs, are going to have their own preference for things that will be different to yours. It’s priced very very well for what you get — a poweruser’s mini tablet.

I don’t think I’d be able to go back to an iPad or even Android, considering what’s possible with a full-blown copy of Windows 8. The stylus is very good and responsive but like many have mentioned it isn’t good on the edges of the screen.

Absolutely hopeless for scrolling, always use my finger for that. Even when calibrated with Windows’ tool it’s still dodgy. I’ll have a few more words to say about it tomorrow but for now I’m loving it, the smoothness is what gets me, it’s buttery unlike Android on the Nexus 7.

Yeah huge difference, it’s a nice smooth compact tablet on the one hand and a small fully fledged computer on the other. It’s strange, but I haven’t noticed much issue with the stylus on the edge of the screen.

Maybe I just don’t pay as much attention as others. For those looking for a PDF annotation tool on the Windows 8, my recommendation is Drawboard, which is developed in Melbourne of all places.

I’ve not had any issues with it at all! Another tool for those at uni is Microsoft’s OneNote. I know a lot of people prefer EverNote but I’ve been using OneNote ever since going to Uni back in and first trying a tablet with digitizer in it.

Being able to create tabs in workbooks, plus print in webpages and recording voice notes. It comes as part of the Office pack on the VivoTab for a reason ;. Also, I noticed someone mention VS, I haven’t installed it yet, for one reason, VS is a hungry beast and this is a low end device.

I’ve used VS on a Samsung Ativ Pro and even on something of that size and power it was still a bit of a struggle to use, especially without a keyboard.

Then again, maybe my work projects are a little heavy handed compared to uni work if that is what it is for. If you do plan to use it, I recommend using the full touch keyboard as you will want the ctrl and other keys accessible at times.

Righto, do tell us how you go with it, I really like the idea of an iPad-style smart cover but the interference is obviously a deal breaker. The availability of cases is pretty scarce for this model WACOM distortion seem to come from the 3 magnet on smartcover when it is folded back, not the 4 magnet on the side.

Don’t really think I could live with that for note taking, particularly since the white space on lecture slides is the only place I can use for writing After a week of solid use I’m beginning to get the hang of this tablet, and having a full Windows machine in a compact package is something of a revelation!

One thing i have noticed, though, is that this thing attracts fingerprints more than any device I’ve ever owned. I guess the screen coating was one of the areas they saved money on.

Other than that, and a little stylus weirdness towards the bottom of the screen, it really is pretty impressive. Have people been trying out other Stylus’s with this? Curious as to if it’s worth picking a different one up, eg the Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel Pen which I believe does not have an eraser.

I’m happy with the pen that comes with the Motion tablets. However I’m using it to write, not draw. The link below has a decent description of the pen, but he is wrong about the eraser.

I’ve developed software for the Motion tablet the back of the pen is detected by windows as the different input device. That aside I’ve had the Note8 for 3 weeks and I’ve been happy with it so far, although Microsoft really need to bring back the tabtip feature.

The desktop is extremely frustrating without it. Ive bit the bullet and ordered one of these tablets from Digital Star as my local HN didn’t have any in stock and attempted to sell me one of the first gen Atom based W8 tablets.

The silo pen is handy in a pinch though. Hi all, I managed to get the 64gb model on Ebay for Does anyone know where I can get a screen protector in Australia. That’s a great price.

Digitalstar sent mine yesterday and it arrived this morning not bad for Australia Post to regional NSW. I’m typing my response from the tablet. I did attempt calibration but will need to do it again.

Metro is now actually usable with touch input and the pen is reasonably comfortably to hold. The touch input is also good. Overall I am impressed so far. One thing to note is that the pen from my wacom bamboo cth is not compatible with this tablet.

The plastic shell itself is like 4mm thick, I would prefer to have them slimmer. This case is passable to me for now, until something significantly better comes along.

My toyota also doesnt have a built in coffee machine, but they dont advertise that so must come with one standard right. Bought the first one furythree suggested on ebay Chinese smart cover.

Hope it doesn’t suck too badly I just got mine, I gave up on the DV8P, I think that the Dell screen is better but the digitizer works pretty good, I’m using the Surface stylus and it’s awesome.

Gents, this machine is awesome. I have tried here maps and was able to get GPs signal almost immediately. I have tried Mavericks on VMware and it works, the pen performance is good, maybe is just me but I think it’s slightly faster that the V8P.

MS USA store is selling the official case for 29 USD, does anyone know how much will cost the delivery here through one ship forward company? Whenever cleaning the screen, the screen gives off this clicking sound even if the tablet is turned off.

Yeah it does, it’s very very faint and a bit random. I just picked it up now and it made the sound, then put it down, picked it up again and no sound. Also, when you press the back of the tablet with your fingers, do you notice any sort of distortion on the screen due to the pressure?

To sum up, you think I should call Asus about the clicking sound when cleaning the screen, or trying to nudge the back of the tablet? That’s strange I’ve never heard any clicking noise on my tablet.

Sometimes there seems to be a delay between clicking the power button and the screen coming on again. Guessing these are normal. Gents, I have found that the official case for the W3 tablet fits perfect the Note 8: Im so keen for an 8 inch device but Im reluctant due to the specs Is there any word on expected new 8 inch devices?

That was at the Adelaide City store 1 left, though assume the price may apply across the board. Checked device manager and the 12C HID driver is not working. I have tried updating, uninstalling, disabling and enabling to no avail.

I have specs i mind and none meet all the requirements. Looks like it’s been experienced by others. Im just saying being a bit unrealistic in expectations giving the timing of the release.

After stuffing around with the drivers all day with no success I did a system restore and so far it seems to be working again. But from what i have read online it appears to come and go: My pen has stopped working again today.

Will be taking it back to MSY tomorrow morning, hopefully ill be able to get a replacement pen. My pen also stopped working all of a sudden. I think the consensus so far is to return the tablet for repairs.

Let us know how you go randomguy27, good luck: Agghhhh — bad news about the pen. I would suggest taking it back to the place of purchase rather than Asus and demanding a working product.

Of course this depends on how much time has elapsed since you bought it. I would NOT send it back to Asus. I had my AVN8 for under 2 weeks and constantly fiddled with countless calibration methods to try and get a better edge calibration, then gave up.

CentreCom didn’t want to replace the unit and said they would send it off for repair. They sent a courier to collect it and took it to Brisbane. The next day I got a call from a service guy in Brisbane to clarify what the problem was.

He said he’d do a factory wipe and reinstall then recalibrate if necessary — so far so good. Then every week since I called call centre in Taiwan to ask what was going on and they promised an email update.

Last week I called and asked for 3rd level management [already got 2nd level before] and they were very apologetic and assured action but still I have heard nothing. And now its been 5 weeks with them.

I think I was way too polite and now just want the damn thing back or a refund. Time to threaten action. It was a big mistake to not go thru CentreCom since then the obligation is with them.

Pathetic service from Asus. Avoid sending your unit in because you may not see it for a long long time. Haggle with the place of purchase first and quote Aust Consumer Law that you are entitled to a functional product, as of course you are.

Have you installed Wacom drivers since you bought the Note 8? Or has it been vanilla, with only Windows updates? It’s looking like a hardware failure. Hopefully it’s only a small proportion The latest Wacom update notes said an Asus vivotab update was yet to be released.

This really is a strange situation. Although the tablet seems to be available from a couple of major retailers Centrecom and MSY in particular, it doesn’t appear on the Australian ASUS website and from what I’ve read hasn’t been officially released in many regions.

Mine has yet to experience any pen failures, but given my experience with past Asus tablets I fear it’s just a matter of time. Depending on the device it is the same for a lot of brands models you will find at retail will be different to what you get from msy in notebooks etc.

Just got back from MSY and all went well! Spoke to the person in charge of warranties, showed him the problem what I had tried to do fix the device. He had a look at it confirmed the issue and replaced it.

D fingers crossed this one brake as well. Mines still working knock on wood, but I’m using the motion pen with it not the crappy asus one. Has anyone sourced a good case for this yet?

Something without magnets that stuff up the wacom, but sturdy enough to provide some protection? I think these are generally well regarded. I’m just using an Incipio case and going naked in meetings the tablet that is People are reporting failure after 40 days in.

It’s starting to sound like when rather than if. Might grab a Surface Pro and put the Asus on eBay. Maybe there was too much cost-cutting to deliver the good price point. It’s been made available in some other forums.

Have been reluctant to try it as others have reported bricking and that it hasn’t fixed the issue. I think with the number of RMAs, it’s either 1 a bad production run 2 an issue in Windows 3 a fault in the digitizer.

Hope you are right and it is software, though I think I will put it on eBay and grab a SP 2 though I’m very torn about it, as I really like the Note’s form factor but am nervous about possible failure.

Hey, out of interest, what is the date of manufacture of your units? I found the date on the stickers found on the rear at the bottom — mine is Might help to see what units with issues are dated.

Thanks nethappy for the heads up and the valuable input. I was stoked when I woke up the next morning and the pen started to work again I disabled the 2nd I2C HID Device before go to bed and enabled it again when I woke up tested and all is well, threw inside the backpack.

By the time I arrived at work, she’s gone dead again: I contacted Digital Star, they said they’ll send me the firmware from Asus to fix it haven’t received it yet or do a full system reset which I can’t afford to do it yet.

Hey, out of interest, what is the date if manufacture of your units? I wouldn’t be surprised if Asus have skimped on quality at this price point. After my disappointing experience with the first and second gen nexus 7 tablets having faults requiring replacement multiple times and a vivotab smart also requiring replacement out of the box I couldn’t trust them to buy one of these although I’m very interested in the overall feature set.

I ended up ordering Dell venue 8 pro this week instead since they seem to have sorted out their active stylus finally and it tracks accurately right to the edge unlike what I’ve read about the Asus.

Didnt know they sorted it How is it compare to Wacom tech? Is the pen sensitive and accurate for note-taking? I haven’t received mine yet but the reviews online look promising. It doesn’t seem as good as wacom still according to the reviews I’ve seen but it does appear adequate for note taking now.

I can update you on it’s actual performance when I receive and test it out. This fits and keep the tablet protected, but U lost the slots for micro SD and home button http: I can safely say I vouch for these stylus.

Note m80ta z3740 64gb dl004h asus 8 vivotab payroll

Sistemul de operare ruleaza foarte rapid, fara nicio problema. Actualizarile de sistem de instaleaza in cateva minute, nici vorba de 2 ore. Este acceptat card microSD de 64GB de atat am eu. Teoretic, nu ar accepta unul mai mare, dar practic sunt sigur ca se poate rezolva cumva.

Cat despre comparatia cu Android si Nexus 7, pot sa spun doar atat: Detin in paralel un Nexus 7 si va pot asigura ca Note 8 este cu mult mai stabil si rapid.

Cand pun tabletele una langa alta, Nexus 7 mi se pare o jucarie foarte proasta se misca foarte foarte greu si prost in comparatie cu Vivotab Note 8. Cat despre jocuri, desi nu am o pasiune pentru acestea, va pot spune ca am testat si ca aceasta tableta se comporta surprinzator de bine.

Jocurile optimizate pentru interfata touch se misca perfect. Aspecte pozitive Asus VivoTab Note 8: In concluzie, va pot spune ca aceasta tableta isi merita toti banii si ca nu exista o optiune mai buna pe piata in acest moment.

Daca vreti tableta doar ca sa intrati pe Facebook si sa va jucati Angry Birds, ramaneti la Android! Insa, daca doriti o tableta cu adevarat capabila si performanta, care sa reuseasca sa inlocuiasca in mare parte un notebook – luati Vivotab Note 8 si nu veti fi dezamagiti!

Salut, Am si eu aceasta tableta si cele mai multe dintre “problemele” mentionate de tine sunt “by design” in acest domeniu de ex “un singur port microUSB” – pai la ce tableta ai vazut tu 2?? Are tot pe partitia de recovery, se reinstaleaza foarte simplu de aceea ai o parte din spatiul intern deja alocat Tableta mea nu este deloc lenta, chiar se descurca admirabil in aplicatii variate chiar si din suita Office – Outlook, Word, Excel si chiar in multitasking si jocuri din Store.

Acum nu ma astept sa fac encodare video cu ea, dar in mod office este o surpriza deosebita. Daca spui ca la tine sacadeaza, ori este o problema cu tableta ori ai instalat ceva nepotrivit care consuma multe resurse sacadarea si autonomia de doar 12h in sleep conduc catre asta.

Iti recomand sa-i faci un fresh reinstall si sa vezi daca te ajuta. Salutare, De cand a revenit din service, a mers “blana”. De vreme ce digitizerul se afla pe placa de baza, mi-au schimbat-o cu totul.

Placa noua pare sa aiba un eMMC mai potent. Nu mai sacadeaza deloc, chiar daca uneori e lenta. Una peste alta, in afara de digitizerul cu probleme, n-am ce sa-i reprosez.

Intr-adevar, colturile le citeste gresit din stylus, micsorand practic diagonala utilizabila pentru desen Dar daca e sa o comparam la pret cu tabletele dedicate Wacom, iesim destul de bine.

Tableta asta e perfecta daca esti corporatist, deci e numai buna pentru tine. Te asigur ca nu am nimic “nepotrivit” instalat pe tableta, nu am deloc programe care sa ruleze aiurea in fundal.

Singurele programe care ruleaza sunt cele standard cu care a venit. Se poticneste de fiecare data cand citeste sau scrie pe eMMC. Iti multumesc pentru comentariu. O duc la service. Unde ai dus-o la service?

Nu chiar, dar pe-aproape. Asus are service international din fericire, asa ca am completat formularul de RMA de pe site-ul Asus. In cateva zile a venit curierul sa o ridice de la birou in UK. A fost gata in mai putin de 2 saptamani, cu totul cu transport.

Eu iti recomand sa dezactivezi BitLocker si sa incerci un full wipe in prima faza. Simplul fapt ca se misca incet nu prea e treaba de service. Dar repet, s-ar putea sa fie de la bitlocker.

Merci, acum pot dormi linistit, ca m-ai asigurat tu ca nu ai aplicatii “nepotrivite” pe tableta. Incercam sa-ti dau o recomandare. In tot cazul, cred ca te-ai prins ca esti singurul care vede atatea nereguli cu tableta aceasta, deci ai sanse sa le rezolvi cu reparatia la service.

Comunitatea pasionatilor de hardware, overclocking, modding si cai putere Titlu. I had forgotten about this but I stopped reading after the third repeat of the above. Obviously they aren’t the same model one compared a non digitiser variant to a digitiser variant.

In any case I am impressed at the local price. Not quite the alleged price but for a proper stylus and windows product that’s still solid value assuming Asus have improved things since the botched launch.

Also note that the price is pretty close to the Note 8, wow! Who’d have thunk it? So I called Asus today, got connected to their home base Taiwan? Called local JB but not surprisingly they had no clue of release dates.

However — Scorptec Vic called their stockist and confirmed they have the 32Gb model in stock, no grey import, proper Australian stock with Australian warranty.

Can get it in days. Likewise, proper local stock. Said they only stock the 64Gb since the Windows recovery partition takes up too much space. Rather curious since apparently the tablet comes with an 8Gb microSD with the recovery partition on it.

I’m after the 64Gb model but would prefer a bricks and mortar store like Scorptec in case a return is needed. EDIT 1 hour later: They said they’d have stock mid next week, so about Feb 12th.

Contacted them through online chat, and they confirmed that it is in stock, lets see if they do indeed send my order on monday next week Scorptec emailed me a few minutes ago and said that although they have the 32Gb available, they can’t get the 64Gb model because it’s either not released in Australia, or some other re-seller has the exclusive rights to it.

I tend to agree. Has the power adapter got an Australian power plug? Very excited to know. Will order one if it has. Just pick one up from DigitalStar, it is on charge at the moment.

Looks ok out of the box. How is the display? What sort of Wacom pen do you get? Is it a tiny internal holstered one like the Note 8 or a full sized pen like the TFC?

I really want one of these as well. Talked with Harvey Norman but they don’t have a clue, neither does JB. The screen is fine for what I have used it for and what I intend using for, mainly as a notepad and web browser, with the occasional reviewing of MS Office and PDF docs, I have tested a non-HD movie and it was great.

I did have an issue with the screen not rotating after all the Windows 8 updates were applied, it was easily fixed by selecting the manual windows update and installing the optional updates, there were about 5 so I am not sure which one was needed, I was just happy it worked.

My only downside so far is the lack of accessories, I would have liked to have been able to grab a case for it. I’ll be buying my Note 8 later this week and a case will be the first accessory to hunt for as well.

Let’s keep tabs here what we find locally. Of course, I can’t vouch that any of these work with the Note 8, so maybe keep an eye on the Tabletpcreview for comments there.

The screen is fine for what I have used it for and what I intend using for Thanks for the writeup! One other thing, how much bloat was Pre installed and how much free space did you have?

I take it it didn’t come with the recovery Micro SD like has been mentioned as that supposedly only comes with the 32GB model. I would say the build quality is ok, it does not feel or look as good as the Apple, but it is acceptable.

The Windows button on the side takes a little getting used to, I think it would be better to have it on the front. Thanks for the info. Still surprised these are on the shelf as soon as they are Might have to order one.

I called yesterday and they said they didn’t have them yet and weren’t sure when they would arrive! Anyway, I picked mine up from CentreCom today but box is still unopened until after work. Check the list at http: One day in and all is great with the Note 8.

Pen and palm rejection are great, as is to be expected with Wacom. But just like not-a-clue, definitely need some accessories ASAP, particularly a case. The odd location of the windows button doesn’t bother me since I use right-hand-swipe and select it from the charms.

Only issue is lack of pen accuracy on the left hand side, but I can live with that. Turns out PLE have them though, looked yesterday and they didn’t. Might pop down during lunch and grab one: Just received it from digitalstar today, installed office and hearthstone etc, pretty happy with it so far.

Is anyone having the digitizer issues emerging on a few YouTube videos in relation to a ‘distorted’ zone on the edge of the tablet the side with the Asus logo? Thinking they are just isolated, but wouldn’t mind hearing about digitizer performance.

I haven’t seen the ones on YouTube, but seems like there is a very small amount of distortion along that side of the display. Certainly no worse than any other Wacom digitiser display I have used, in fact checking around all the edges it is probably one of the best if not the best.

Will try it out tonight with my Motion Computing pen and with the felt nibs, both of which are a lot nicer than the one that comes with the tablet though handy enough in the silo. Have been playing around, overall seems really good.

Plastics are a bit meh, especially around the joins. Set up office, Light room PS how to avoid auto correct kicking in on words it doesn’t recognise? Very happy, much speedier than my iPad all round.

Set up Bluestacks as well, its a bit buggy, not much else to say there. I have just drawn using WACOM pen and a ruler to test it out, the line do get distorted by about 2 to 3 mm into screen around ASUS logo, the distortion is gone about 1cm in, other edges seem ok.

Yes, I get the distortion too, along the ASUS side and the camera side, ie left and right hand side in landscape mode. My ruler test was probably even a little more extreme than in the youtube vid, but goes away about 1cm in like with ravescar.

But the question is whether it really matters. For OneNote I don’t write all the way to the margins anyway so that’s no issue. In portrait mode in Desktop, there is a mm distance between pen and cursor position and so I’ve found I do have to pay attention carefully when using the pen to select icons pinned to the taskbar.

My fingers are actually more reliable than the pen at selection there! That being said, I haven’t done any sort of calibration yet so I’m hoping it may improve. Or else I’ll simply make the taskbar icons a little larger after finding out how — option in 8.

I used it off and on all day at work yesterday, wireless connected all day, reading documents, a little annotation. So nothing too heavy. Does anyone know if you can get the recovery media elsewhere to gain some extra space on the 64gb model?

I haven’t done any sort of calibration yet so I’m hoping it may improve. There is a way to force it to have LOTS more calibration points for a far more accurate calibration than the standard.

This is usually very very good for fixing corner and side issues compared to the standard calibration tool. How do you get it to have lots more calibration points? The usual calibration is in the corners, but it’s along the edges where the bigger problems lie.

You can change those grid points if you want to, they should be for number of pixels on the display so this was a x display. You can set how far along X an Y each line is basically.

Enables you to do much tighter patterns along edges and corners where problems usually occur. Worked well for me on a number of devices, haven’t tried it yet on on the M80TA though.

Red lines are after point calibration Green lines are with standard 4 point calibration Blue lines are with calibration reset to default. The blue lines on the left and right are a little deceptive, since they should have been further out from the edges — the lines were consistently closer to the edges than the pen actually was.

Don’t worry about the gaps on the left. I couldn’t write over the Drawboard page counter and zoom buttons. On another issue, has anyone found a reasonable case yet? I think in the interim I’ll just get a cheap sleeve from Officeworks.

Some people have talked about the Note 8 fitting in your pocket but you’d need to be bigger than Andre the Giant to have pockets to fit it. Yes, can’t think of any reason why not.

Only one I found so far is: Both from same company, getting ivso one for now, estimated postage delivery time seem slow though, ordered today and delivery date march 3 I couldn’t tell from the photos whether there is a hole in the case for the pen.

All reviews on the page are for other tablets. Let us know how it is when it arrives. T mi5 writes I didn’t check out of the box, but after installing Office and a few small metro apps I have So I know most of you here already know that you want this device, but for those of you who are unsure, take a look at this article: So the following has appeared on Amazon: I was in MSY today and they have them in stock too.

Anyone with information of a good keyboard? Better still if keyboard can be also cover for the tablet. Below two links not sure if both same item or is the same one on previously shown Canadian video of the tablet.

This tablet is a fingerprint magnet, it is so bad that it makes me think i have been eating greasy burger. Got to a mobile repair shop and got someone cut Ipad screen protector to size and applied it, the edge is a bit uneven but now much better fingerprint wise.

Any of the ‘tablet PC’ type ones will work. Cintiq and Intuos ones won’t. Though had a weird bit of triggering when trying to calibrate for some reason. Since I’m unable to test one of these in-store I was wondering opinions on this as a device for a uni student.

I’ve got a desktop at home for all my assignments so I’m looking for something to have lecture slides on that I can highlight, make notes, study language with I study Chinese and Japanese so handwriting would be handy for character study, etc.

Basically I want to replace pen and paper, remove the need to print lecture notes, and so on. Would you recommend it over a Samsung Galaxy Note I’m evaluating it at the moment for using OneNote to make notes on meeting papers, pdf’s etc, so pretty much the same as your needs.

The advantage of OneNote is that you can search your own handwritten notes, and the handwriting recognition is pretty amazing since my handwriting is awful. So far, I have two issues: Something like the Surface but not so bulky, and with This can be really annoying when taking fast notes.

So although I’m reasonably happy with the Note 8, I’m still on the lookout for a 10″ device. I haven’t used the Galaxy Ideally I’d like to have the Windows environment so I’m holding out for MWC to see if anything that really hits the nail on the head is announced.

I wish Microsoft would make a surface with bay trail for reduced weight and portability. So far I am very impressed with the device, no issues at all with the stylus.

My daughter is using this to take notes at school college and create artwork for her graphic arts classes — she is rapt with it. More real-estate for the art would of course be beneficial she uses her laptop to refine her work, however she finds the 8 inch form factor gives here the mobility and ease of use, especially for reading, that she really needs.

However trying to access Asus Support is impossible for me. The device urges you to register for your warranty support and you can fill the form in but it times out trying to submit.

I have not been able to fully test the card yet but when trying to access Asus Support to see if there are any updated drivers for the card reader https: It would have been a killer device.

Like you I am holding out for a Wacom Been waiting a long long time and I’m not sure it will ever “surface”. But one can only hope! I think on the start screen if you search update it will be one of the first apps if you open it it will load to the desktop and you will see the icon in the notifications area you can click on and click check for updates.

Thanks, I’ll give it a go when I can next pry it from my daughters hands. I usually have to wait and hijack the thing when it’s put on charge! My experience with the ep was fantastic, but it was a little ahead of its time in that there were no docking technologies for KB avaialbe it was the first product device asus released after showing off their Transformer book concept.

The wacom stylus was amazing to use and the silo was a godsend. Unfortunately the processor chewed too much battery and even with windows 8 its still sluggish I took it to work and scribed notes with it everyday and it was fantastic to use given the amazing hand writing recognition of one note and the native MS pen input keyboard.

However with the 12″ size and hefty weight and low battery, i was constantly tethered to an AC outlet. When the surface pros came out, i was really excited but the plasticky cheap wacom stylus without a silo and still chunky size was disappoint.

When dell released the venue 11 and 8, i was excited finally to have an ultraportable thin tablet with all day battery and stylus. Unfortunately the DVP8’s synaptics hardware is an absolute crock of Sh1t.

The touchscreen is buggy and double taps and the stylus v1 was buggy and you cant even order the new one. So for those wanting a 11″ sized tablet with stylus and kb, this is a good option because you can get it in a thinner Atom variant that lasts longer in battery and is lighter and cheaper Just be wary of the stylus.

The Venue 8 pro is a great size. I feel that comfort wise 8″ is the perfect size. Although i do occaisionally miss the larger screen size when browsing and watching media. I also own 2 last generation asus TFcs which are transformer books running windows and have a pen.

I have used mine for work to take notes and review documents my sister uses the Tfc for uni and for art. The bonus keyboard dock extends the battery and she can do more accurate tasks like excel documents, which is more difficult in tablet mode even with a stylus.

Though I am happier with the M80TA now for it’s portability. Sold the TFC for more power and got the T Samsung, so happy with the M80TA the Samsung has gone and I cannot believe how much computer and it is a real computer is packed into this tiny tablet.

Hi, just wanted to post a resolution to this encase anyone else strikes this. In my case it was simply a mater of uninstalling all SD controllers and restarting to allow Windows to re-install. Any word on when this device will be coming to JB or Harvey Norman?

I would really like to test the device out before buying it. I have plaid with the first generation and new generations quickly and the obious tests like scrolling on home screen, browser etc.

It was night and day different the first gen felt acceptable but laggy the new ones you seem to be alot faster. I think Asus have gone exclusively channel with this model for now so no mass merchants.

Were are you located there should be some stores with display or you could contact Asus and ask them to find a store with a demo model. The poor pen calibration on the sides of the screen has been increasingly driving me nuts and I’m sending the Note back to Asus for evaluation.

Even though I’m 10mins from a Melb service centre it has to go to Brisbane. The service info person asked me whether I have tried recalibrating it. I said I did the 4 point calibration a few times, and then a point calibration that made it much worse.

Those you you with the Note, how are you finding writing near the edges? The worst edge for me is the edge where the camera is. Student who’ve used tablets with styluses before, how useful do you find it for making notes and etc on pdfs?

I ended up jumping on the Galaxy Note Writing notes on pdfs is fantastic, definitely can recommend a wacom digitiser for such tasks. If 8″ screen is enough for you, grab this puppy and enjoy.

Diggy the Wombat writes I’d be mad to get the Galaxy Note 8 over the VivoTab, particularly at this price, correct? I don’t think you’d be mad choosing either of them over the other.

Both of them are going to do the job of annotating PDFs just as well as each other. The question for you should be more of whether you will be able to take advantage of Windows or Android more for other tasks that you may want to do on the system.

I actually have both the Vivotab Note 8 and the Galaxy Note 8, and both have their strengths and weaknesses. The Asus is a more powerful package all round, but the Samsung has a much better implementation of the stylus.

With the Galaxy you can use the pen to do most things on the tablet, including navigating menus etc. Dragging between screens on the Asus moves the tiles around, making the pen feel a little tacked on.

Small text is also much easier to read on the Samsung, which is surprising since they are about the same resolution. The main reason I want the pen is for lecture notes.

I also like the idea of running Windows apps and games with this. I use a Windows 8 PC day to day and used to own an Android tablet. I have no OS preference. So some questions for you if you don’t mind: Going to test this for you now on my Galaxy Note Well it is terrible in this app.

All apps do it differently depending on the developers. The implementation on this app is awful. If I place my hand first and then start writing it draws a line from where my hand touched the screen to where my pen touched the screen.

That may explain the bad reviews from a few people. Most apps have the option to disable touch detection and use the pen only, except where it detects multi touch, such as 2 finger scrolling etc. Other apps work with ignoring the palm much much better than this.

I’d avoid iAnnotate personally. The Surface unfortunately has abysmal battery life and is more unwieldy but otherwise is the better machine. Well that’s a little disappointing.

I guess S-note is totally fine though for PDF annotating? I remembered on my old Nexus 7 that most PDF readers other than iAnnotate lagged lots, which was strange given the N7 had decent hardware for its day.

What about on Windows tablets? Is there better support for palm rejection on desktop apps like for example Bluebeam? The battery life seems similar. I have the phone version of the Galaxy so that tends to use more battery than the WiFi only version.

The Galaxy feels much more pen-like. The stylus has a spring-loaded nib which makes it feel less like hard plastic on glass. I loved iAnnotate on the iPad, but the Android version is pretty crippled.

I’m actually using Acrobat on both devices and find it to be better on the Galaxy. The greatest strength of the Asus is that it comes with Office. I’m a university lecturer and use powerpoint extensively, so being able to create and edit on the go is great.

On the flipside, the Galaxy is designed to be a mobile device, whereas the Asus still feels like a desktop OS that is slowly being transformed into a mobile friemdly device.

Indicative of this is the hassles involved in getting Metro aps to recognise content on a SD card. I’m a uni student and I’m happy enough with it that I’ll use it for all my lectures this semester.

I’ve noticed no lag in writing other than what is normal with a digitiser when writing. There is always a tiny tiny bit of lag. However S Note does lag switching pages but so does EzPDF which is a paid for and extremely popular pdf app so I guess it is just something to live with.

It won’t affect you writing notes but if you’re on page 2 and want to get to page 10 then it will take longer than you’d be used to on a PC for example.

On the Galaxy Note 8 you will have a different version of S Note to me though so performance may be difference, in fact the older version of S Note is superior. That’s good, I’ve already purchased it, another reason I’m considering the Note 8 is because I have a bunch of paid Android apps.

I think ultimately the Asus will be a better productivity device, but it’s not there yet. Thanks so much for your useful post! I’m still torn as to which one to get though!

I love the idea of a Windows tablet that seems to be more powerful, can play some PS2-era PC games on the train, and better if fewer tablet apps — I mean, Facebook for Android for instance is awful on a tablet.

I got mine from Centrecom, which seem to have a few in stock at various locations. The thing with PS2 era games is that they have to be optimised for touch controls, which most PC games aren’t.

So there are many that just won’t work without a keyboard or joystick. That’s good but I’m in NSW though. Yes, I was planning on giving this https: But you’re right in saying that the Android game library for touch is a lot better, and it has good emulators too.

I would mostly be using the tablet for uni and for reading annotating textbooks and lecture notes is high on my list, seeing as most ‘work’ I do requires a desktop CAD etc.

But thinking of all this, 1 use case above all would be web browsing. I ask because my old Nexus 7 really did suffer from some awful lag when surfing the web. But I also feel that your musings on the stylus’ feel are not to be ignored.

Keep in mind that a you should be able to use any quality Wacom compatible stylus and b the nibs are replaceable. The stylus implementation on Windows is generally better and can be used on far more apps than the ‘tacked on’ Samsung implementation I’ve had a Galaxy Note 8 and many many Wacom enabled Windows tablets dating back nearly a decade — I keep coming back to Windows and couldn’t sell the GN8 fast enough.

I found beyond the built in ‘S-pen’ apps on the Galaxy Note 8 there was very little that took good advantage of the styuls and those that did generally only worked within their own silos, as with most ‘tablet’ stuff, what you do on there isn’t immediately transferrable to a full sized computer.

I am sure this will get better as more apps take advantage of the stylus and more manufacturers make Android devices with stylus support, but Windows has been implementing stylus support for over a decade and is supported on a core level.

But different people have different needs, thus far the Asus Note 8 is the best tablet device I have used though the build could be slightly nicer. I found beyond the built in ‘S-pen’ apps on the Galaxy Note 8 there was very little that took good advantage of the styuls and those that did generally only worked within their own silos.

This is what I was afraid of. I don’t want to be locked into half-baked Samsung Apps and not be able to use my PDF reader of choice, for example. But on the ASUS the stylus should work decently in any Windows program that has a ‘pen tool’ and palm rejection is automatic right?

What I need is essentially what you are after I believe, I simply need to take notes on lecture slide pdfs and other general pdf documents, take notes in digital notebooks, write quick memos, access internet for looking up information, etc.

The current Android apps available meet those needs, some are by Samsung, others by other developers. Everyone is going to have a different opinion on what is better, hell even following a thread over on xda about the best note taking app for Android sees completely different opinions despite people having tried the various offerings.

People here, no matter they have had both the windows and android tabs, are going to have their own preference for things that will be different to yours. It’s priced very very well for what you get — a poweruser’s mini tablet.

I don’t think I’d be able to go back to an iPad or even Android, considering what’s possible with a full-blown copy of Windows 8. The stylus is very good and responsive but like many have mentioned it isn’t good on the edges of the screen.

Absolutely hopeless for scrolling, always use my finger for that. Even when calibrated with Windows’ tool it’s still dodgy. I’ll have a few more words to say about it tomorrow but for now I’m loving it, the smoothness is what gets me, it’s buttery unlike Android on the Nexus 7.

Yeah huge difference, it’s a nice smooth compact tablet on the one hand and a small fully fledged computer on the other. It’s strange, but I haven’t noticed much issue with the stylus on the edge of the screen.

Maybe I just don’t pay as much attention as others. For those looking for a PDF annotation tool on the Windows 8, my recommendation is Drawboard, which is developed in Melbourne of all places.

I’ve not had any issues with it at all! Another tool for those at uni is Microsoft’s OneNote. I know a lot of people prefer EverNote but I’ve been using OneNote ever since going to Uni back in and first trying a tablet with digitizer in it.

Being able to create tabs in workbooks, plus print in webpages and recording voice notes. It comes as part of the Office pack on the VivoTab for a reason ;. Also, I noticed someone mention VS, I haven’t installed it yet, for one reason, VS is a hungry beast and this is a low end device.

I’ve used VS on a Samsung Ativ Pro and even on something of that size and power it was still a bit of a struggle to use, especially without a keyboard. Then again, maybe my work projects are a little heavy handed compared to uni work if that is what it is for.

If you do plan to use it, I recommend using the full touch keyboard as you will want the ctrl and other keys accessible at times. Righto, do tell us how you go with it, I really like the idea of an iPad-style smart cover but the interference is obviously a deal breaker.

The availability of cases is pretty scarce for this model WACOM distortion seem to come from the 3 magnet on smartcover when it is folded back, not the 4 magnet on the side.

Don’t really think I could live with that for note taking, particularly since the white space on lecture slides is the only place I can use for writing After a week of solid use I’m beginning to get the hang of this tablet, and having a full Windows machine in a compact package is something of a revelation!

One thing i have noticed, though, is that this thing attracts fingerprints more than any device I’ve ever owned. I guess the screen coating was one of the areas they saved money on. Other than that, and a little stylus weirdness towards the bottom of the screen, it really is pretty impressive.

Have people been trying out other Stylus’s with this? Curious as to if it’s worth picking a different one up, eg the Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel Pen which I believe does not have an eraser.

I’m happy with the pen that comes with the Motion tablets. However I’m using it to write, not draw. The link below has a decent description of the pen, but he is wrong about the eraser.

I’ve developed software for the Motion tablet the back of the pen is detected by windows as the different input device. That aside I’ve had the Note8 for 3 weeks and I’ve been happy with it so far, although Microsoft really need to bring back the tabtip feature.

The desktop is extremely frustrating without it. Ive bit the bullet and ordered one of these tablets from Digital Star as my local HN didn’t have any in stock and attempted to sell me one of the first gen Atom based W8 tablets.

The silo pen is handy in a pinch though. Hi all, I managed to get the 64gb model on Ebay for Does anyone know where I can get a screen protector in Australia. That’s a great price. Digitalstar sent mine yesterday and it arrived this morning not bad for Australia Post to regional NSW.

I’m typing my response from the tablet. I did attempt calibration but will need to do it again. Metro is now actually usable with touch input and the pen is reasonably comfortably to hold.

The touch input is also good. Overall I am impressed so far. One thing to note is that the pen from my wacom bamboo cth is not compatible with this tablet. The plastic shell itself is like 4mm thick, I would prefer to have them slimmer.

This case is passable to me for now, until something significantly better comes along. My toyota also doesnt have a built in coffee machine, but they dont advertise that so must come with one standard right.

Bought the first one furythree suggested on ebay Chinese smart cover. Hope it doesn’t suck too badly I just got mine, I gave up on the DV8P, I think that the Dell screen is better but the digitizer works pretty good, I’m using the Surface stylus and it’s awesome.

Gents, this machine is awesome. I have tried here maps and was able to get GPs signal almost immediately. I have tried Mavericks on VMware and it works, the pen performance is good, maybe is just me but I think it’s slightly faster that the V8P.

MS USA store is selling the official case for 29 USD, does anyone know how much will cost the delivery here through one ship forward company? Whenever cleaning the screen, the screen gives off this clicking sound even if the tablet is turned off.

Yeah it does, it’s very very faint and a bit random. I just picked it up now and it made the sound, then put it down, picked it up again and no sound. Also, when you press the back of the tablet with your fingers, do you notice any sort of distortion on the screen due to the pressure?

To sum up, you think I should call Asus about the clicking sound when cleaning the screen, or trying to nudge the back of the tablet? That’s strange I’ve never heard any clicking noise on my tablet.

Sometimes there seems to be a delay between clicking the power button and the screen coming on again. Guessing these are normal. Gents, I have found that the official case for the W3 tablet fits perfect the Note 8: Im so keen for an 8 inch device but Im reluctant due to the specs Is there any word on expected new 8 inch devices?

That was at the Adelaide City store 1 left, though assume the price may apply across the board. Checked device manager and the 12C HID driver is not working.

I have tried updating, uninstalling, disabling and enabling to no avail. I have specs i mind and none meet all the requirements. Looks like it’s been experienced by others.

Im just saying being a bit unrealistic in expectations giving the timing of the release. After stuffing around with the drivers all day with no success I did a system restore and so far it seems to be working again.

But from what i have read online it appears to come and go: My pen has stopped working again today. Will be taking it back to MSY tomorrow morning, hopefully ill be able to get a replacement pen.

My pen also stopped working all of a sudden. I think the consensus so far is to return the tablet for repairs. Let us know how you go randomguy27, good luck: Agghhhh — bad news about the pen.

I would suggest taking it back to the place of purchase rather than Asus and demanding a working product. Of course this depends on how much time has elapsed since you bought it.

I would NOT send it back to Asus. I had my AVN8 for under 2 weeks and constantly fiddled with countless calibration methods to try and get a better edge calibration, then gave up. CentreCom didn’t want to replace the unit and said they would send it off for repair.

They sent a courier to collect it and took it to Brisbane. The next day I got a call from a service guy in Brisbane to clarify what the problem was. He said he’d do a factory wipe and reinstall then recalibrate if necessary — so far so good.

Then every week since I called call centre in Taiwan to ask what was going on and they promised an email update. Last week I called and asked for 3rd level management [already got 2nd level before] and they were very apologetic and assured action but still I have heard nothing.

And now its been 5 weeks with them. I think I was way too polite and now just want the damn thing back or a refund. Time to threaten action. It was a big mistake to not go thru CentreCom since then the obligation is with them.

Pathetic service from Asus. Avoid sending your unit in because you may not see it for a long long time. Haggle with the place of purchase first and quote Aust Consumer Law that you are entitled to a functional product, as of course you are.

Have you installed Wacom drivers since you bought the Note 8? Or has it been vanilla, with only Windows updates? It’s looking like a hardware failure.

Hopefully it’s only a small proportion The latest Wacom update notes said an Asus vivotab update was yet to be released. This really is a strange situation. Although the tablet seems to be available from a couple of major retailers Centrecom and MSY in particular, it doesn’t appear on the Australian ASUS website and from what I’ve read hasn’t been officially released in many regions.

Mine has yet to experience any pen failures, but given my experience with past Asus tablets I fear it’s just a matter of time. Depending on the device it is the same for a lot of brands models you will find at retail will be different to what you get from msy in notebooks etc.

Just got back from MSY and all went well! Spoke to the person in charge of warranties, showed him the problem what I had tried to do fix the device. He had a look at it confirmed the issue and replaced it.

D fingers crossed this one brake as well. Mines still working knock on wood, but I’m using the motion pen with it not the crappy asus one. Has anyone sourced a good case for this yet?

Something without magnets that stuff up the wacom, but sturdy enough to provide some protection? I think these are generally well regarded. I’m just using an Incipio case and going naked in meetings the tablet that is People are reporting failure after 40 days in.

It’s starting to sound like when rather than if. Might grab a Surface Pro and put the Asus on eBay. Maybe there was too much cost-cutting to deliver the good price point. It’s been made available in some other forums.

Have been reluctant to try it as others have reported bricking and that it hasn’t fixed the issue. I think with the number of RMAs, it’s either 1 a bad production run 2 an issue in Windows 3 a fault in the digitizer.

Hope you are right and it is software, though I think I will put it on eBay and grab a SP 2 though I’m very torn about it, as I really like the Note’s form factor but am nervous about possible failure.

Hey, out of interest, what is the date of manufacture of your units? I found the date on the stickers found on the rear at the bottom — mine is Might help to see what units with issues are dated.

Thanks nethappy for the heads up and the valuable input. I was stoked when I woke up the next morning and the pen started to work again I disabled the 2nd I2C HID Device before go to bed and enabled it again when I woke up tested and all is well, threw inside the backpack.

By the time I arrived at work, she’s gone dead again: I contacted Digital Star, they said they’ll send me the firmware from Asus to fix it haven’t received it yet or do a full system reset which I can’t afford to do it yet.

Hey, out of interest, what is the date if manufacture of your units? I wouldn’t be surprised if Asus have skimped on quality at this price point. After my disappointing experience with the first and second gen nexus 7 tablets having faults requiring replacement multiple times and a vivotab smart also requiring replacement out of the box I couldn’t trust them to buy one of these although I’m very interested in the overall feature set.

I ended up ordering Dell venue 8 pro this week instead since they seem to have sorted out their active stylus finally and it tracks accurately right to the edge unlike what I’ve read about the Asus.

Didnt know they sorted it How is it compare to Wacom tech? Is the pen sensitive and accurate for note-taking? I haven’t received mine yet but the reviews online look promising.

It doesn’t seem as good as wacom still according to the reviews I’ve seen but it does appear adequate for note taking now. I can update you on it’s actual performance when I receive and test it out.

This fits and keep the tablet protected, but U lost the slots for micro SD and home button http: I can safely say I vouch for these stylus. All this feels dodgy as hell for me and had me worried that I was being scammed, but item did arrive eventually and were packed well.

Dealing with this seller is not for the faint hearted. For any who might be interested, I finally got my AVN8 back today after 4 weeks at Asus service for calibration problems.

It took multiple complaints by phone to Asus Taiwan and two emails to get any answers at all when my tablet would be ready for return or what the problem was. In the end I was given the phone number of the Brisbane service centre where all Aust tablets are sent and I spoke directly to the tech looking at my tablet.

He said they checked all hardware and it was OK but that the edge calibration problem is to be expected.

Lag-uri constante aveam si eu pana cand am dezactivat BitLocker. E un feature simpatic daca ai de gand sa-ti fure cineva tableta la un moment dat si sa nu poata accesa datele, dar in acelasi timp mananca destul procesor.

Dar da, eMMC-ul ales de Asus cam lasa de dorit Intr-adevar, Windows merge mai slab pe un Atom quad core decat Android pe un Snapdragon quad core. O fi cumva din cauza diferentei de arhitectura dintre x86 si ARM?

Stylusul mergea genial, pana cand intr-o zi, fix cand desenam, n-a mai mers. Din cate am citit pe net, s-a ars digitizerul Wacom. Sa vedem cat de prietenosi sunt cei de la garantie in afara de chestia asta, i-as da un 8.

Am muscat si eu si am luat tableta asta. O am de 2 zile, mi se pare bestial stylusul in desktopul clasic. Singurele probleme pana acum sunt faptul ca sylusul nu merge prea bine intr-o zona mica fix sub camera sensitivitatea digitizerului e proasta acolo, daca trasez o linie si trec prin zona aia se subtiaza ca si cum n-as mai apasa la fel.

Am inteles ca e din cauza stylusului, am vazut pe net recomandari pentru stylusul de pe Surface Pro. A doua problema e faptul ca nu gasesc o husa sau o carcasa TPU. Dupa cat timp ti s-a stricat? Pe net am vazut ca media e de 30 zile.

Ma bazez pe asta sa ma pot afla inca in perioada de retur cand se strica. Surprinzator primul comentariu, mai ales ca si eu detin aceasta tableta de aproximativ o luna de zile. Cu siguranta acea tableta despre care vorbeste are un defect, altfel nu-mi explic.

Va recomand sa intrati pe forumul tabletpcreview unde sunt zeci de posesori de Asus Vivotab Note 8. Pana una alta, o sa va confirm eu cateva lucruri: Nu este necesar sa mergeti la service pentru reinstalarea sistemului de operare pentru ca exista optiune de recovery.

Sistemul de operare ruleaza foarte rapid, fara nicio problema. Actualizarile de sistem de instaleaza in cateva minute, nici vorba de 2 ore. Este acceptat card microSD de 64GB de atat am eu.

Teoretic, nu ar accepta unul mai mare, dar practic sunt sigur ca se poate rezolva cumva. Cat despre comparatia cu Android si Nexus 7, pot sa spun doar atat: Detin in paralel un Nexus 7 si va pot asigura ca Note 8 este cu mult mai stabil si rapid.

Cand pun tabletele una langa alta, Nexus 7 mi se pare o jucarie foarte proasta se misca foarte foarte greu si prost in comparatie cu Vivotab Note 8. Cat despre jocuri, desi nu am o pasiune pentru acestea, va pot spune ca am testat si ca aceasta tableta se comporta surprinzator de bine.

Jocurile optimizate pentru interfata touch se misca perfect. Aspecte pozitive Asus VivoTab Note 8: In concluzie, va pot spune ca aceasta tableta isi merita toti banii si ca nu exista o optiune mai buna pe piata in acest moment.

Daca vreti tableta doar ca sa intrati pe Facebook si sa va jucati Angry Birds, ramaneti la Android! Insa, daca doriti o tableta cu adevarat capabila si performanta, care sa reuseasca sa inlocuiasca in mare parte un notebook – luati Vivotab Note 8 si nu veti fi dezamagiti!

Salut, Am si eu aceasta tableta si cele mai multe dintre “problemele” mentionate de tine sunt “by design” in acest domeniu de ex “un singur port microUSB” – pai la ce tableta ai vazut tu 2??

Are tot pe partitia de recovery, se reinstaleaza foarte simplu de aceea ai o parte din spatiul intern deja alocat Tableta mea nu este deloc lenta, chiar se descurca admirabil in aplicatii variate chiar si din suita Office – Outlook, Word, Excel si chiar in multitasking si jocuri din Store.

Acum nu ma astept sa fac encodare video cu ea, dar in mod office este o surpriza deosebita. Daca spui ca la tine sacadeaza, ori este o problema cu tableta ori ai instalat ceva nepotrivit care consuma multe resurse sacadarea si autonomia de doar 12h in sleep conduc catre asta.

Iti recomand sa-i faci un fresh reinstall si sa vezi daca te ajuta. Salutare, De cand a revenit din service, a mers “blana”. De vreme ce digitizerul se afla pe placa de baza, mi-au schimbat-o cu totul.

Placa noua pare sa aiba un eMMC mai potent. Nu mai sacadeaza deloc, chiar daca uneori e lenta. Una peste alta, in afara de digitizerul cu probleme, n-am ce sa-i reprosez.

Intr-adevar, colturile le citeste gresit din stylus, micsorand practic diagonala utilizabila pentru desen Dar daca e sa o comparam la pret cu tabletele dedicate Wacom, iesim destul de bine.

Tableta asta e perfecta daca esti corporatist, deci e numai buna pentru tine. Te asigur ca nu am nimic “nepotrivit” instalat pe tableta, nu am deloc programe care sa ruleze aiurea in fundal.

Singurele programe care ruleaza sunt cele standard cu care a venit. Se poticneste de fiecare data cand citeste sau scrie pe eMMC. Iti multumesc pentru comentariu.

O duc la service. Unde ai dus-o la service? Nu chiar, dar pe-aproape. Asus are service international din fericire, asa ca am completat formularul de RMA de pe site-ul Asus.

In cateva zile a venit curierul sa o ridice de la birou in UK. A fost gata in mai putin de 2 saptamani, cu totul cu transport. Eu iti recomand sa dezactivezi BitLocker si sa incerci un full wipe in prima faza.

Simplul fapt ca se misca incet nu prea e treaba de service. Dar repet, s-ar putea sa fie de la bitlocker. Merci, acum pot dormi linistit, ca m-ai asigurat tu ca nu ai aplicatii “nepotrivite” pe tableta.

Incercam sa-ti dau o recomandare. In tot cazul, cred ca te-ai prins ca esti singurul care vede atatea nereguli cu tableta aceasta, deci ai sanse sa le rezolvi cu reparatia la service. Sper ca ai si rezolvat pana acum.

This fits and keep the tablet protected, but U lost the slots for micro SD and home button http: I can safely say I vouch for these stylus. All this feels dodgy as hell for me and had me worried that I was being scammed, but item did arrive eventually and were packed well.

Dealing with this seller is not for the faint hearted. For any who might be interested, I finally got my AVN8 back today after 4 weeks at Asus service for calibration problems. It took multiple complaints by phone to Asus Taiwan and two emails to get any answers at all when my tablet would be ready for return or what the problem was.

In the end I was given the phone number of the Brisbane service centre where all Aust tablets are sent and I spoke directly to the tech looking at my tablet. He said they checked all hardware and it was OK but that the edge calibration problem is to be expected.

He suggested to hold the pen at right angles to the screen when writing near the edges. They did a factory reset and recalibration and perhaps it’s a little better, but not much, and still mm off at the edges.

I asked if he knew about the pen death issues reported on this forum and he said no customer has reported this issue, and Asus Taiwan haven’t issued any alerts to the service centres.

I’ve owned the tablet for 45 days with no pen death, but then again, I’ve only had the tablet in my possession for 15 of those days. I see some of you have bought a case for the tablet.

Do any of them have an opening for the pen, or are they all just rebadging of cases made for the Dell VP8 or others of similar size? I bought this VSTN case from Amazon and it has all the appropriate cutouts for everything including the stylus but I think I’ll change it to this one.

On a side note, I’ve received a new firmware from Digital Star which sent to them by Asus and my pen is now working again, touch wood so far so good. What is the firmware they sent you? Curious if it’s the same that has appeared on the tabletpcreview forums https: I emailed Asus re the pen issues and they want me to send the unit in for repairs or they can pick it up, but I can’t afford to part with the tablet atm so I took the other option with the FW sent to me from Digital Star.

My pen is still up and running but it’s only been 2 days so I need to wait a bit longer before I can say the FW works. If you like to try the one I’ve got to see if it makes any diff, PM me I’ll flick it to you.

The magnet is an issue but not huge it impacts the edges, but because Onenote has borders i never write that close to the edge to worry. Just hold the pen perpendicular near the edges or hold it at a crazy angle when you calibrate it near the edges.

On the previous pages where i listed the ebay clones of the IVSO cases for this tablet. Thanks for the update. Could you provide the link to the exact case you bought?

In your previous posts you mentioned a few different ones with links for each. Re edges and perpendicular holding of the pen — this is exactly what Asus tech support advised me to do.

It is a little better, but not a huge amount. Yes, looks like the same firmware. I’ve not been able to get my I2C HID driver to start working again, even after uninstalling, shutting down etc.

This one here http: I would assume would fit. Its one of those cases that are resized and available for every device out there Colleage has one for ipad mini and it works quite nice. My gripe with the trifold is the inability to use in portrait, that one above is cheaper and works in portrait but thicker and no magnets.

Was just wondering if I could ask an owner of an Asus Vivotab Note 8 a question. I would like to know if this device has a built in equaliser, and if so, how many bands does it have?

Thanks heaps to anyone that replies! I ordered that one above. The bit version should go on without any problems. Not sure whether that means bit Windows 8. Which I do on my Sammy Slate 7 anyway to prevent slow battery drain.

Resumes in under 10 seconds which is good enough. I bought the 64GB version early feb and immediately tried installing x64 windows 8. Obviously couldn’t do it so tried to reformat with x Successfully did that, leaving the restore partition intact just in case.

I realised that after attempting to update windows it wouldn’t boot and I’d be forced to reinstall windows. I did this a couple of times just to test, silly me. Anyway, I ended up reformatting the entire drive removing the recovery partition.

The current drivers available for the wireless hardware are having issues connecting to certain networks I’m unsure of why and despite installing the device drivers from a few different sources I can’t seem to get a connection with my primary home network.

I was wondering if somebody out there has a note 8 with the recovery partition or stock install and therefore the ability to create one who lives somewhere near the route between Mount Waverley and Bayswater that I could stop off at on my way home from work or meet in a public place and get a copy in an attempt to go back to the stock software?

At the very least the Surface Pro and S7S pens work on each other: Never used the Surface Pro pen. My only experience with tablets has been a nice three months with my S7S. See the video at about the Samsung’ S-Pen stylus works fine, as does Lenovo’s stylii for thinkpads using one from my XT which has an eraser as well.

It seems to cause horrible slowdown when transitioning, and for some reason appears to murder the battery — as soon as I got rid of it the battery would no longer drain at work and take 8 hours to charge Other than doing the standard 16 point calibration again, this might help: Not sure what points to set for x, but the key is to have more points along the edges and corners.

Put as many or as little as you want. I believe that this method overrides the factory calibration data though, so make sure it’s worth it. Yeah, the reset option is still available.

However, I’m not sure if it reverts to the factory calibration. Mine just felt a bit off, as if entering in new points into “tabcal” in the cmd prompt overrode it or something.

When I had mine, found it to be fine. It’s around the size of note pads I use for scratch notes taken in meetings. Using a ‘proper’ sized pen helps I used the Surface Pro pen.

I haven’t been using mine for a while, I caved and bought a SP1 after ‘downgrading’ from a T because I needed something a bit grunted and finding my i7 laptop not available to me as much now that my fiance has realised it is faster than her laptop so I got the SP needing something closer to a laptop and they were so darn cheap, but hung on to the Asus anyway.

Anyway, picked it up today and realised how great a little device it is, did a few updates and some of the ‘weird’ behaviour I was getting seems to have settled and is now just a fine little machine.

Like the size and battery life, digitizer is good, screen ok. Don’t think I will be getting rid of it any time soon but will start taking it with me everywhere and not babying it quite so much something I tend to do with devices.

To create a backup you can use http: You can use below to add features and type in your windows 8 pro product key and upgrade. If you read the link you can type in your own product key.

I don’t know anything about msdn but have used numerous times with oem windows 8 pro to upgrade devices that only come with the home version. My symptoms were “limited” connectivity after resuming from sleep occasionally, “limited” connectivity randomly popping up during use, WiFi going completely disabled during use requiring a reboot, and generally bad and choppy performance.

The higher price 64gb is bundled with Windows Pro. I’ve been rocking the device since buying it on a whim on 30 June via Amazon, and it arrived on about 10 July ish.

New wacom drivers in http: I’m going to have to make a warranty claim on mine — the USB port has buggered itself. So now it won’t charge. Tried a bunch of different USB cables, also can’t see any visible damage on the port itself, so one may assume that perhaps something is wrecked internally.

Fairly disappointing, I only bought it in March this year. Good luck dealing with Asus. I logged a service call smashed screen then sent the device to their Sydney Silverwater repair shop and haven’t heard a peep from them.

Yeah I actually rocked up to Silverwater in person, handed it in and got a record of the RMA, so should hopefully be okay. I had rung their service centre beforehand, who were completely useless.

Aside from the fact that the dude had “never seen one of these before” — either they don’t often break or they’re really unpopular I’m thinking the latter. It’s generally OK about 1cm away from the edge, but left edge, middle you need to be about cm away.

I am using the new driver. Probably a setting i can change, but have not figured out how. Overall reasonably happy with the speed. I have the same issue with the right edge in landscape that is. Though I never updated to the new driver Is reboot just not an option in the settings charm?

And please make sure to take extreme care with the micro USB port in case yours ends up like mine! I mean I don’t think mine was subject to rough treatment, but all the same I shipped it off on 22 July called repeatedly but didn’t get anywhere then they called and emailed on 13 August so 21 days duration.

If it were a warranty job then I wouldn’t have been too fussed however given I was ‘pretending’ that I was going to pay for the repair then it was way too long and I can’t say I’m ovwerwhelemed at all by their customer service.

Yeah, shame it’s such a rare model compared to say Nexus 7. Can you call Silverwater direct rather than their number which goes to the call centre in the Philippines? The dude at the service centre told me I’d hear from him in 5 days but sounds like wishful thinking based on your experience!

Maybe I should have got a Surface Pro. I’ve read that the build quality and problems with it make it a no go. Have a read of: Tablet pen was working fine for about 5 months note this was a replacement tablet Pen would occasionally stop, and would respond again after the driver was disabled-re-enabled.

Updated drivers on Monday, pen is unresponsive as of today. As of today, my stylus has also stopped working. Not in the slightest. Dude seemed really apologetic. At least I actually went up there and asked them to prove it was fixed on the spot, otherwise who knows what would have happened.

There is a known fix digitizer problem you could try if you are having code A request for the HID descriptor failed. The fix involve using plastic card to pop back of tablet open, and fix the 2 Flexible cables, more detail here:.

It is easy to open the back, no screw or glue or anything like that. My digitizer never lasted more than a day’s use before fix, but it is now going strong for a week straight.

I kind of got caught up in a few Graysonline auctions yesterday and so I now have paid for a Dell Venue 8 Pro. I did think about getting the keep chinese models and decided against it as I’ve had and still have quite a few 7″ chinese Android tablets and wanted to get and pay a lot more a bigger brand.

I also gave up on the Lenovo dream as they still haven’t released the updated Thinkpad 8 to Australia. It’s back, and fixed! It also no longer takes 12 hours to charge, so replacing the battery certainly helped there.

Opening tablet up and swapping out the 9 pin flex ribbon cable is what permanently fixed this issue for me. Gah, just bought one of these second hand and got all my programs on just the way I like it.

Now stuck in a boot loop with the message:. Can’t get past it. Nvm, after an hour trying to boot it finally did so. Will be installing windows updates only a few at a time from now on Typically the 64GB one doesn’t get discounted, and this is cheaper than the cheapest 32GB one on StaticIce, so great deal Yeh I am torn between waiting what 8 inch with Pen is coming out this year or just grabbing this!!!

I’d say hold off. The unit is good and meets urgent needs, but it is an old model, and it could be better. IMO if you can wait for a Windows 10 class device, do so. My Note 8 just died, warranty expired last march.

This is the issue: Does anyone have experienced something similar? A heads up for anyone else who has this tablet and has decided to consider upgrading to Windows Windows 10 breaks stylus palm rejection.

That is, writing with a stylus while your hand is on the screen will cause the tablet to BSOD on random occasions. How’s your VivoTab going for you anyway? I take this back: It’s often very unresponsive, particularly as far as the power button is concerned this has been the case since I first got it, mind you, entering in my PIN takes a while for the keypad to show up, very far from a seamless iPad-like experience.

It’s too underpowered for my needs i. It also suffers from the occasional stylus hardware fault as described throughout this forum, not that I care about it anymore given the BSODs.

It suffers from these ugly bloody bright spots on the display: It’s been to ASUS’s repair centre in Silverwater twice because the battery stopped charging, they returned it unfixed, finally fixed it on the second go six weeks later.

It might actually be the worst tablet I’ve owned, previously I had a Nexus 7 first-gen which infamously suffered from insane memory degradation. It met a sticky demise when a fat lady sat on it on the train.

Diggy The Wombat writes It’s often very unresponsive, particularly as far as the power button is concerned this has been the case since I first got it, mind you,. It also suffers from the occasional stylus hardware fault as described throughout this forum,.

Probably the only reason to move to Windows 10 — MS Edge is wizardry. The VivoTab reaches iPad-level smoothness with this app. I’d be in agreement. I’m a serial early adopter, I love updating my stuff to the latest software releases on day 1 no matter what pain it brings.

In fact using Windows 10 everything is running super quick and smooth. Not fixed yet for me. Are you using any Wacom Feel drivers or the stock Windows ones? Little bastard of a thing. It sometimes likes to get really hot and discharge the battery extremely quickly when I put it on charge.

A reboot sometimes fixes it, but it’s on its last legs. No stylus anymore — I’m going to crack it open and try and fix that — and clean install Windows 10 once I can get enough charge to plug in my USB OTG and actually let it install!

Mine did this 3 weeks ago. Opened it up — super easy thanks to youtube. There is two strips on each side of the tablet bent in half or in three. Straighten these out a little and keep screen on so you can test stylus.

I straightened mine out a little as they were squashed, rear back on and back at it again. As M80ta have a special inspecition system, we can only maintain the power power no add and no reduce when OTG.

Nobody can’t resolve this problem at present. Archive View Return to standard view. Just saw a CES article after the device’s announcement http: Just saw a CES article after the device’s announcement Sold!

Am I can say is Gimme! Any word on a 3G option? Any word on a 3G option Not according to the specifications listed on this site http: I think you are being too optimistic, its not in line with other tablets when you factor in the digitiser And?

Digitisers are extra hardware to the screen of the device and the only successful companies that make them are Wacom and Ntrig, Are you are slow or just find reading difficult?

How is THAT so hard to understand? I don’t think this my first statement on price is really any different, in fact I KNOW it isn’t because my stance hasn’t changed one bit: And then later said: I previously used an asus ep with wacom stylus, but the battery life was too short good for the time, but not enough for these days But it was the only thing using wacom.

The vivo tab not only uses the wacom over the sh1tty synaptics solution but because the wacom styluses dont require batteries, the pen can be thin and thus they are able to build a silo slot which i prefer over case holders I just hope asus pairs some decent accessories.

Their prices are also always cheaper than any other brand As an asus user for the past 15 years, i shouldve known better than to buy the dell and shouldve waited for asus to deliver. Not the same model.

Look forward to hearing whirlpoolian impressions as you guys get them. None seem to show as in stock, maybe these are pre-order only. I am dead keen to get one Asus website for Aust has no mention of the tablet.

A few say preorder only, and one had March 2 as arrival date. Anyone got one already? Is it a genuine Aust release? Does it come with Aust power plug? Ordered one now, thanks for the head up. Great — make sure you post here with updates!

I thought the microsd was for all sizes. Yes, it does have Australian power plug as my friend just bought one too. Can you confirm that it has GPS, some specs say it does and some specs don’t say it does.

Ok, after the first 24hrs I am very happy with this purchase. Hi The screen is fine for what I have used it for and what I intend using for, mainly as a notepad and web browser, with the occasional reviewing of MS Office and PDF docs, I have tested a non-HD movie and it was great.

The pen is long, thin and internally stored, it is good to use and very responsive and accurate. Maybe a case for the Dell Venue 8 would be suitable for the Asus Note 8?

Here’s something someone posted on tabletpcreview: Uvf9Yvsbyoo and a USB port hub http: Uvf9hPsbyoo Of course, I can’t vouch that any of these work with the Note 8, so maybe keep an eye on the Tabletpcreview for comments there http: Lastly what is the general feel of it in terms of build quality etc?

No recovery MicroSD as mentioned it is only with the 32Gb. I ordered a 64gb from CentreCom and am picking it up tomorrow. Anyone know any stores in WA with stock? Have you calibrated it or just out of the box?

What sort of real world battery life results are these units getting? I got the info from this thread back when I had an EP But it is noticably worse after the point calibration! See the image below: Red lines are after point calibration Green lines are with standard 4 point calibration Blue lines are with calibration reset to default The blue lines on the left and right are a little deceptive, since they should have been further out from the edges — the lines were consistently closer to the edges than the pen actually was.

I’ve gone back to the default calibration and will try again another time. Has anyone been able to get one of these to try out yet? I interested to know what other accessories in market.

They are now on the MSY site. Hi, has any tested another stylus with this yet? I have ordered a Wacom Bamboo Feel, fingers crossed it works. There is a review where Bamboo feel carbon is tested, it should work.

Hate those slippery plastic tips! Hey all, Since I’m unable to test one of these in-store I was wondering opinions on this as a device for a uni student. Thanks a lot for your reply nethappy, much appreciated.

I have not seen any updates for the card reader using that software. Unfortunately the processor chewed too much battery and even with windows 8 its still sluggish I took it to work and scribed notes with it everyday and it was fantastic to use given the amazing hand writing recognition of one note and the native MS pen input keyboard However with the 12″ size and hefty weight and low battery, i was constantly tethered to an AC outlet When the surface pros came out, i was really excited but the plasticky cheap wacom stylus without a silo and still chunky size was disappoint When dell released the venue 11 and 8, i was excited finally to have an ultraportable thin tablet with all day battery and stylus Unfortunately the DVP8’s synaptics hardware is an absolute crock of Sh1t.

So for those wanting a 11″ sized tablet with stylus and kb, this is a good option because you can get it in a thinner Atom variant that lasts longer in battery and is lighter and cheaper Just be wary of the stylus The Venue 8 pro is a great size.

Although i do occaisionally miss the larger screen size when browsing and watching media I also own 2 last generation asus TFcs which are transformer books running windows and have a pen its only 2 faults are no pen silo but free case included and crap atom processor My dream device right now would be a next gen atom TFc 10″ is the perfect balance between 12″ ridiculousness and 8″ ultraportable imho any tablet 8″ or 10″ with a wacom stylus, long battery and decent processor running windows is perfect for uni I have used mine for work to take notes and review documents my sister uses the Tfc for uni and for art.

Looks like a perfect tablet for Uni. Also, I shouldn’t have too much issues running VS on it other than the lack of screen size? Just something for you to consider. Then you are the man I need to be speaking to!

Where else can I walk in to a store and get the Asus but MSY I got mine from Centrecom, which seem to have a few in stock at various locations. If games are what you’re after, Android is currently a better choice Yes, I was planning on giving this https: Thank you very much for your help in helping me make a decision though!

But I also feel that your musings on the stylus’ feel are not to be ignored Keep in mind that a you should be able to use any quality Wacom compatible stylus and b the nibs are replaceable.

Digitalstar were some people got on the 2nd page have 64gb in stock and on display in Auburn. I found beyond the built in ‘S-pen’ apps on the Galaxy Note 8 there was very little that took good advantage of the styuls and those that did generally only worked within their own silos Silos?

I’ll assume you meant styluses, or styli The only way you are going to know for sure is to test them out yourself. I’ll have a few more words to say about it tomorrow but for now I’m loving it, the smoothness is what gets me, it’s buttery unlike Android on the Nexus 7 Yeah huge difference, it’s a nice smooth compact tablet on the one hand and a small fully fledged computer on the other.

It comes as part of the Office pack on the VivoTab for a reason ; Also, I noticed someone mention VS, I haven’t installed it yet, for one reason, VS is a hungry beast and this is a low end device.

Still waiting for screen protector and case to arrive. So far I have to agree fantastic tablet! I notice it a little when im trying to cram a lot of writing up close to the edge of teh screen. This app is fantastic!

Still waiting for screen protector and case to arrive What ones did you get? Thanks i just bought one Gunna sell this dell piece of crap. Looks like they removed the free shipping for it. Still works out cheaper.

What ones did you get? IVSO case has arrived. Anyone know of any good non-magnetic cases for this? They’re hard to find Does anyone know I can connect this to external 24″ monitor via toshiba dynadock 3.

IMO tolerable if you don’t fold the smartcover back when notetaking. Any decent ones that do have an eraser? When I get it I will test it with my Wacom Bamboo stylus and report my findings.

My task mow is to find a case and screen protector. If you read the comments, it appears to have the same issues. Anyone have the official case? The product reviews claim that it does have magnets.

On another note here is some posters who tooking IVSO’s magnets off: I think the first 2 have magnets to hold the cover close when not used. They seem to have quite a few cases for the M80TA.

Available on the 25th of March. Hi all, Gadgets 4 geeks in Drummoyne have cases. Gadgets 4 geeks in Drummoyne have cases. Thanks for that but they don’t look good. Hey guys, So I got mine yesterday, but I have something that is bothering me since I have opened it.

And if you try to bend the tablet ever so slightly, it also gives off the same clicking sound. Regardless, you must really pay attention to actually hear it. What should I do?

I know what you mean, but no idea what it is. Haven’t let it worry me. So yours does the same? I see, it is sorta faint but that disturbs me though. The fact that cleaning the screen makes the faint-ish noise tells me how the build quality is.

Thanks for your help though. The pressure thing is visible during the booting of Windows. When you see the Asus Logo. Have you tried pressing slightly on the corners of the screen?

I have a tfc and find using Wacom pen on edges isn’t accurate. Is it the same for the 8? Wacom pen on edges isn’t accurate. Does the TFC or Surface pen fit in the pen slot?

My Stylus has just stopped working. Looks like it’s been experienced by others Good luck. Seems to be a fairly common problem: Will be taking it back to MSY tomorrow morning, hopefully ill be able to get a replacement pen Damn!!

Will be taking it back to MSY tomorrow morning, hopefully ill be able to get a replacement pen Have you installed Wacom drivers since you bought the Note 8? Is any stylus rendered inoperable, or just the pen that came with the unit?

Good luck with MSY! Let us know how you get on. Demand a replacement or refund, especially if it’s recently purchased. I’ve had the device just under a month. Hopefully I can get a full replacement.

Hey guys Just got back from MSY and all went well! At least it seems to be happening enough to get some recognition and action. I bought this VSTN case from Amazon and it has all the appropriate cutouts for everything including the stylus but I think I’ll change it to this one SUPCASE instead since it doesn’t have the magnet inside the case to interfere with the pen and looks just as slim.

I’m suffering from the pen death failing I2c HID driver so will likely be placing a call to ASUS on Monday I emailed Asus re the pen issues and they want me to send the unit in for repairs or they can pick it up, but I can’t afford to part with the tablet atm so I took the other option with the FW sent to me from Digital Star.

This is a notorious issue with Wacom pens I sold my Dell venue 8 for this tablet and no regrets. I have to have a siloed pen Just hold the pen perpendicular near the edges or hold it at a crazy angle when you calibrate it near the edges.

On the previous pages where i listed the ebay clones of the IVSO cases for this tablet mine arrived and fits perfectly Hi Fury, Thanks for the update.

Is it still functional? Its one of those cases that are resized and available for every device out there Colleage has one for ipad mini and it works quite nice My gripe with the trifold is the inability to use in portrait, that one above is cheaper and works in portrait but thicker and no magnets.

Anyone have problems with f. Or has anyone found a better calibration fix? Hardly an issue though if the factory calibration is poor to begin with. How do you guys find the size of the device for note taking?

You can use below to add features and type in your windows 8 pro product key and upgrade http: To create a backup you can use i wanted the stock asus image though rather then just a win8 image so i can return to stock afterwards when i try putting 8pro on it also i cant use the add feature function, for starters doing that would cost me ALOT of money for a 8pro license and i have a few unactivated copies of pro from MSDN so i’d need to do a fresh install.

I am pretty sure this will recover the image that Asus have already put on the tablet. I notice Kogan are selling 2 64gb versions, I can not see any difference other than the price.

Today I bumped it and now have a cracked screen. Have called them a few times and they keep saying we’ll get back to you but no luck so far. Had one for about a month so here are a few thoughts: Overall reasonably happy, but its far from flawless, but good value for the price.

Mine does this too. Reboot also works but eh. How long did it take? Will pull the pin and buy a new one from Amazon soonish. Wasn’t aware of that. Yes I’ve already ordered I’ve read that the build quality and problems with it make it a no go any links?

Its the only one with 3G. Do people not want 3G? I’ve heard good things about asus tab but no 3G is a deal breaker. Not sure if I would recommend the new wacom drivers

I’ll wait for a local release given my experience with asus tablets in this price range being faulty on numerous occasions, I don’t want to risk buying from overseas. Aspecte pozitive Asus VivoTab Note 8: Sa vedem cat de prietenosi sunt cei de la garantie in afara de chestia asta, i-as da un 8. It’s too underpowered for my needs i. Is it the same for the 8? The pressure thing is visible during the booting of Windows.

Teoretic, nu ar accepta unul mai mare, dar practic sunt sigur ca se poate rezolva cumva. The VivoTab reaches iPad-level smoothness with this app. Simplul fapt ca se misca incet nu prea e treaba de service.

Hopefully it’s only a small proportion I have ordered a Wacom Bamboo Feel, fingers crossed it works. I’ve not had any issues with it at all!
