As of 2015, ASUS tablets are not the highest-rated brand, according to Purch's Laptop Mag and TrustedReviews. The iPad Air 2 gets the highest marks from both sites for best overall tablet, followed by the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and the iPad mini 2, reports TrustedReviews.
The Asus Transformer Book T100 is rated No. 8 in the list of top-14 best tablets by TrustedReviews, while the Transformer Book T200 received the rank of best two-in-one tablet on Laptop Mag. Both products are similar, offering an affordable price point and long battery life. However, the newer Transformer Book T200 has a larger 11-inch display, a detachable full-sized keyboard and the option of adding a hard drive to expand the 64GB of included storage. Priced at less than $500, the Asus is slightly less expensive than the 64GB iPad Air 2, which sells for $599 on the Apple Store site.
The tiny Asus Transformer Book T90 Chi also got high marks from TrustedReviews for its sleek, lightweight design and low price. However, it features a detachable, trackless keyboard, which means that users must navigate using the touchscreen or keyboard shortcuts, which somewhat limits its usefulness.
Another tablet that got high ratings from reviewers is the Amazon Fire HD 6, which was named best tablet for the money on Laptop Mag and best small tablet on TrustedReviews. The Nvidia Shield tablet was named best gaming tablet on both sites.
