    For those of you not aware, the TF201 (Transformer Prime) Android tablet has really crappy GPS reception, and lower WiFi reception. Personally I can live with the WiFi (it seems about as good as many devices anyways), but yeah the GPS is absolutely crap, I can barely get a signal anywhere. This is a complaint that started ages ago, but I checked my tablet today to find this notice from the status bar.

    I'd much prefer an upgrade to a model that doesn't have this issue, but I suppose that's out of the question with something like this.

    Back when I had DirecTV, there was a class action lawsuit. They gave me 3 TV receivers, a DVR, and all sorts of free crap. Too bad they only are giving you 17$

    That's what happens when you steal Hasbro trademarks for the name of your device.

    The Asus TF series tablets have a whole plethora of issues, not just the GPS and Wifi functions. Bad NAND chips, screens parting from the body, among other things. I am surprised it took this long for a class action lawsuit to happen to be honest.

    My TF201's a sexy little beast, but it's not without it's flaws. :\
