Asus T100TA Windows hybrid reviewed - Touchscreen, Display Quality

Review: Bay Trail on a budget

 

Touchscreen, Display Quality

No complaints here, the touchscreen works like a charm, there is no lag and it is very accurate.

However, when it comes display quality the panel is underwhelming. It is an IPS panel, so viewing angles are not a problem. The colours are good, too. In fact, in terms of accuracy I can safely say the screen can easily take on much pricier devices. It’s not like anyone will use the T100 for photo editing anyway.

With a pixel density of 155ppi, it is not nearly as sharp as most new tablets, but when it’s used in notebook mode it’s not bad at all.

However, brightness is a bigger problem. Indoors it is not bad, but it is simply not bright enough to use outdoors. It is very reflective, too, and since it’s not bright enough to compensate, it just doesn’t cope with outdoor conditions well. This might be a problem for some users, but although it’s a relatively big shortcoming for this type of device, it is still not enough to disqualify the T100TA.

Still, if you plan on using it at home or in the office, this won’t be an issue. Besides, cafe show-offs will probably choose something pricier anyway.
