Asus Settles Eee Pad Connectivity Case, Refunds Users


Asus has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit concerning wi-fi and GPS connectivity issues of the Asus Eee Pad TF201 Transformer Prime tablet. If you own or owned a TF201, you may be entitled to $17 and a free GPS extension kit.

Colin Fraser had filed a lawsuit against Asustek for their Transformer Prime tablet. The lawsuit alleged that the metallic case of the tablet made the tablet's GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities useless. Asus had aknowledged the issue and removed the GPS functionality from the tablet's specification sheet, adding admitting that there were limitations when using the GPS function. Asus claimed it had addressed the issue by offering the Dongle to Asus Eee Pad TF201 Transformer Prime table owners.

Fraser seeked an injunction and damages for "negligence, defect in design, manufacture and assembly, breaches of warranty, violations of California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act and business and professions codes, and negligent misrepresentation."

Now Asus and Fraser have agreed to settle the class action lawsuit. Asus said it was entering into the proposed settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation. Consumers are eligible to participate in the settlement if they are United States residents who bought a TF201 between December 1, 2011 and February 19, 2013 and did not receive a full refund.

Asus is offering each user either a $17 refund or a new Dongle. To claim a cash payment and a Dongle, users must submit a Claim Form on the Asus' website, by email or by regular mail by May 31, 2013.

The Court has not yet approved the settlement and will have a hearing to decide whether to do so. Users who may object to the settlement by June 20, 2013 and ask the Court not to approve the proposed settlement.
