It's a hard choice between them. They both have pros and cons the other doesn't so it's going to be a very personal choice. Transformer: Pros: Better color and 'crisper' display Lighter (noticeable so) Sync/Restore did a LOT more on this device than on the Acer (restored all my wi-fi points ect., not with the Acer) Seems a touch more responsive and quizer Much faster wifi (or rather use of the wifi, loads pages quicker, streams videos quicker ect) Location of Volume rocker Cons: Placement of speakers can cause them to be covered when holding in landscape NO HEPTIC feedback no USB ports unless you buy the $$$ dock No flash on rear camera Semi-tricky root (check the MD5 sums of the files in the root directory!!) Acer: Pros: Much better sound (speaker size, location and software all make a noticeable difference) Flash on rear camera USB ports Easy root Cons: HEAVY -at first I liked the weight (I'm a big guy, large hands and HATE small/light/cheap feeling things, but this this is a beast) useless USB-mini port (unless you're going to buy some adapter cables) docking port No good cases for it yet (though the Transformers aren't much better) Did not stream media as well wi-fi is spotty (connection speed drops a lot for no reason) Screen attracts a LOT of finger prints 'grid' of screen is noticeable at times (with enough light and at just the right angle, it's not really distracting but some people might hate it) So there's a quick run-down. So far the transformer is slightly ahead but I'm going to use the crap out of them this weekend before deciding.
