Good grief, but the people who run eBay's Daily Deals portal really love their Android tablets. After discounts on Nexuses for the last couple of weeks, today we get one of ASUS' flagship tablets at a significant discount. A refurbished Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T (the Tegra 3 model from 2012) is going for just $289.99 with free shipping. That's $210 off the current retail price.

The bad news is that it's a refurbished tablet. The good news is that shipping is free... at least if you live in the lower 48 states. The seller doesn't ship to Alaska or Hawaii, or anywhere else for that matter - sorry, international readers. There is no sales tax charged unless your order is shipped to Florida.

The TF700T is a little long in the tooth thanks to a Tegra 3 processor and 1GB of RAM, but the 1080P screen will beat just about any Android tablet that isn't a Nexus 10. Over at Amazon the cheapest price for a new 32GB model is $444, while TigerDirect has it for $400, so you're still getting a significant discount. That said, those who have to have the latest and greatest are probably waiting for the shiny new Infinity, complete with a Tegra 4 processor and an even denser 2560x1600 screen. ASUS seems to be taking their sweet time with the new model.

As always, eBay's Daily Deals tend to expire after one day or when the pre-set stock runs out. If you want one, put your order in as soon as you can.

    Seriously! Don't promote these shitty devices! Not even at that price. People are going to buy this tablet and regret it! Install 20+ apps and it becomes unusable...

    • WOOZYBE is a troll

      Seriously! Your an idiot! This tablet is awesome!

      • CoreRooted

        Agreed. The TF700T still has one of the best screens ever.

          Another series of Android tablets to launch this month from tablet-maker Pipo Electronics, stand out for excellent build quality and price-performance -- the Pipo M7 Pro ($255) which for roughly the same price as the new Nexus 7, features an 8.9 inch display with 1900X1200 screen resolution that uses advanced Samsung PLS technology, along with a Quad core processor, and built-in GPS navigation -- and is packed with features that compare to the new Nexus... offering premium speakers, WiFi with both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies for greater connection, as well as the choice of using standard Android O/S or a Windows style User Interface that makes the Android experience much more intuitive and easier to use --

          The Pipo M9 Pro ($285) model offers a 10-inch version that compares closely to the new Nexus 10 and 3G HSPA+ is available with either model for $25 more and work with any GSM Carrier, including T-Mobile and AT&T, and an Android phone SIM card maybe used interchangeably with both phone and tablet.

          Both of these new Android tablet models are available on l ine through --T ab l e t S p r i nt–- which also features a new Miracast TV adapter($39) that launched this week, which is similar to Google Chromecast, but with a lot more features and performs much more like Apple's Airplay technology--

            Yeah.. .sorry... seriously not buying ANYTHING from a site that a) has a number in it's domain name and b) can't even afford it's own domain name ("mybigcommerce.com", really?)...

          • sbeckham2

            Your loss CoreRooted -- coming from a guy whom commits on practically every article on this site with not really much to say about anything.

        I am not a fucking TROLL! Nor am I an idiot! It has an awesome screen but the performance is terrible! It is usable now with cm10.2 nightlies otherwise it's terrible. A device should be good out of the box. But with this you have to unlock, give up warranty and install a custom rom! That's not how it should be. And Google Movies won't even play in HD. The i/o performance is absolutely terrible which is very obvious after installing at least 20-30 apps. I am not making this up! THESE ARE FACTS! Do some research! I went through 3 of these tabs because screen lift issues and a broken speaker, so much for quality control. It could be awesome but it lags like hell! You do not have to agree but you do not have to call me a troll or an idiot for disagreeing. I own this tablet from the very beginning. I can not recommend it to anyone! A tablet should be more than just a beautiful screen...

          Really? I was thinking to buy the next version (with the keyboard). I just want to use it to write texts and take notes. The good camera to record the teacher and Super Note seemed perfect for this.

          • WoozyBE

            I would really suggest waiting for reviews. Not from sites like androidpolice or androidcentral but from REAL users. If they are using the same crappy NAND then this device is gonna be useless. If they fix that it will be perfect for that. But typing on my tf700t with keyboard and watching the text appear on the screen 5-10 seconds later with some keys registered a few times is not fun at all!

      • WoozyBE

        "You're an idiot!"

        • Robert McInnis

          It never gets old!

  • Owen Finn

    Buy this, load a custom ROM on it right away, and it's a great tablet.

    One source for Android tablets and hybrids worth reviewing is T ab l e t S p r i nt-- and offer a new series of Android tablets to launch this month from tablet-maker Pipo Electronics, that stand out for excellent build quality and price-performance -- the Pipo M7 Pro ($255) which for roughly the same price as the new Nexus 7, features an 8.9 inch display with 1900X1200 screen resolution that uses advanced Samsung PLS technology, along with a Quad core processor, and built in GPS navigation... and is packed with features that compare to the new Nexus-- offering premium speakers, WiFi with both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies for greater connection, as well as the choice of using standard Android O/S or a Windows style User Interface that makes the Android experience much more intuitive and easier to use.

    Awesome tablet for the price! And for the people who think that this tablet sucks, don't expect to play a brand new 2013 game with full graphics on a soc that came out over a year ago... You have to learn its limits.

    • WoozyBE

      This tablet coudn't even play the games right that came out before the tablet was on the market. The so called optimized Tegra 3 games will hardly run on this device. Unless you like fps below 10. I know it's limits. But this device never performs near it's limits. To much i/o problems making it lag beyond belief.

  • g0vt_h00ker

    the company that sells it is run by jews tho

  • Luis Pérez

    I bought this, it sucks ass, transformers are way too lagy, I've regret it since I've bought it
