    Anyone else have slight vertical banding on the start menu tiles? I didn't notice it when I got my Surface yesterday... but I'm noticing it today.

    I don't notice it any other places but on the plain colored tiles. Very slight color banding. Now that I've noticed it its driving me crazy. Does anyone else have this issue?

    I'll try to take pictures later. I think I may send it back to the Microsoft store and pick one up locally.

    Thanks

    Yes, mine does this as well. I've read that there are some known problems with the current video drivers that are being worked on so perhaps these issues will/can be corrected.
