The MeMO Pad 8 delivers a pretty big punch for a $200, 8-inch tablet -- just be aware that a few rivals offer sharper displays for similar cash.Read the full review →
Of the two MeMO Pads, I'd choose the 8-inch model without hesitation, as it's simply a better bargain. Spending $50 more nets you better cameras, longer battery life and that all-important larger display. The 7-inch system offers superb speed for a $150 tablet, but it's somewhat hobbled by the downgraded cameras. I'd make the sacrifice, as I rarely snap photos with any tablet, but it isn't as well-rounded as last year's MeMO Pad HD 7.
It's a harder call when pitting ASUS against its opponents. While it should be clear by now that the MeMO Pads can take on most any task you'd expect from a mobile tablet, they're not the best at everything; you can find nicer screens and cameras without much difficulty, especially if you're willing to go beyond the $200 mark. I don't think that specs alone tell the whole story, though. ASUS makes a good case for custom Android interfaces. ZenUI is more helpful than the largely stock Android implementation on the Dell Venue 7 or 8, yet it never gets in your way. I can comfortably recommend both the MeMO Pad 7 and 8, but you do have to be aware of what you're giving up -- these aren't so much sleeper hits as they are wisely calculated trade-offs.

The MeMO Pad 8 is said to be the "world's lightest LTE tablet" and at just 299g they might well be correct. It's pretty slim too at 7.45mm.Read the full preview →
First of All, the difference between Me181c and Me181cx are the camera (5mp+1.2mp vs 2mp + 0.3 mp), I got scammed by that and am warning everyone. Now, about this bad boy, I have used it for more than 2 weeks and its great, fast, lightweight, and pretty. You can carry it inside your pockets or...Read the full review →
