A well-rounded overall package

from Notebookcheck

With its Memo Pad 8 ME581CL Tablet, Asus presents a well-rounded overall package for about $390. The compact, stable 8-inch tablet certainly has much to offer. The excellent monitor impressed us with up-to-date resolution, high strength, strong viewing angles, and a good color display. Thanks to precision and good software, the service has an intuitive effect. Apart from LTE and fast ac-WLAN, NFC, Miracast and DLNA offer a noticeable added value in daily use. Additionally, the test machine delivered more than satisfactory performance in each situation and has excess capability for handling upcoming apps as well. However, the battery cannot be swapped out, though it does offer sufficient capacity to last for one day without external power. Those for whom the provided 10 GB of internal storage space (net) is not enough can simply make use of a microSD card. There are also flaws - the disappointing camera modules and underwhelming sound - but these remain within acceptable limits....

Well-worth considering if display and camera quality aren't top of your priority list

Asus's Memo Pad 8 tablet is stylish, well-built and plenty powerful enough for most users looking to play casual games, browse the web and carry out basic productivity tasks. It is well-worth considering at £120 (you'll find it for that price on Amazon) if display and camera quality aren't top of your priority list.

If you want to save a bit of extra cash and aren't worried about loosing an inch off the display, we'd recommend opting for the smaller but very similarly specced Asus Memo Pad 7, which you'll find for under £100 if you shop around.

High system performance, feels good in the hands

from Notebookcheck

The Asus Memo Pad 8 is a usable tablet that cannot always keep its promises. If you are basically looking for good performance, and if you use the services from Pro Sieben, then you actually get a certain additional value. We would still recommend looking at other tablets in this price range before you choose this device.

Neat Android tablet that's also affordable

from Beta News

Asus has come up with a neat tablet here, but anyone with an eye on the MeMO Pad 8 might do well to wait just a little while longer to see what Google pulls out of the bag with its new Nexus.

A solid, compact 8-inch tablet with outstanding performance at a low price

The Asus MeMO Pad 8 shares a lot of what makes smaller, cheaper 7-inch tablets so attractive, but it also has more: blazingly fast performance, a nice design, and specs that more than meet the needs of the average user. On that alone, I can say that it’s a fairly good buy.

With a suggested retail price of $200, and many retailers offering it even below that, it represents a great bargain, especially if you want something a little more meaty than the typical 7-inch tablet. An excellent value.

There's nothing wrong with tweaking a successful formula

from Laptop Magazine

The ASUS MeMO Pad 8 ME181C provides superb performance for an 8-inch budget tablet, but commands $20 more than its lesser-performing competitors. We believe it's worth it for the extra oomph and battery life.

The ASUS MeMO Pad 8 ME181C provides superb performance for an 8-inch budget tablet, but commands $20 more than its lesser-performing competitors. We believe it's worth it for the extra oomph and battery life.

The MeMO Pad 8 also costs $50 dollars more than its 7-inch sibling, but offers the same 1.33-GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash memory. But if you prefer a larger screen, the $199 ASUS MeMO Pad Me181C is one of the best 8-inch budget tablets we've had the pleasure of reviewing.
