    Hello everyone
    Just yesterday i bought surface 3 lte version.
    First issue appeared after 10 minutes, i was not able to add my microsoft account, then it was added, then i was not able to verify it (im not tech lame, it was just not possible, i get message about it :) )but then some updates were downloaded and everything was working almost fine.

    I decided to reset it to factory settings and check if it will work second time ok.
    Well recovery took good 2hours. Today i was in MS store to check with them, if its normal. They told that first time it can take longer time.(They didnt explain why, i dont understand...)
    Today i tried reset again, it took 1hour, 23 minutes.

    Am I expecting too much and disk inside is just that slow, or is there anything wrong with my unit?
    Thank you

    Welcome to the forum

    That doesn't sound all that bad. That isn't actually a traditional SSD so it isn't jack rabbit fast.

    I've attempted Win10 factory reset only once — and it was on a fast machine with a fast SSD, and my internet download speed is 100 Mbps. It took about 2 hours.

    So the fact that recovery took 2 hours on your S3 does not surprise me at all!
