Things like the microSD card slot are really winning as well, and we love the way that Sony has made everything so easy to find on the tablet (after getting acclimatised to the way the user interface works).

The Transformer Pad has a much more average display: it's reasonably bright, with super-wide viewing angles and accurate colors, but it's no more readable outside than any other tablet.

Reviews Word on the street

Xperia Tablet Z  vs Eee Pad Transformer TF300 

It's a much better display than the Xperia Z phone's display for black levels and viewing angles and it beats the higher resolution Nexus 10 for contrast and vibrancy.
Xperia Tablet Z

Still, if Android is your thing, the TF300's price makes it the current best value for a full-Android tablet on the market.
Eee Pad Transformer TF300

On the tablet, it's an LED-backlit LCD panel, while the Xperia Z phone ships with a TFT display.
