    I fumbled with putting a flash drive in my Surface Pro for a few minutes trying not to break something before I got it in the first time. It is slightly looser now but still could attach a string the the usb and swing the surrface around without a fear of it coming out. Anyone else have this?

    No. Mine is pretty snug but not that snug.

    Mine is tight too but certainly not tight enough to swing it from a string.

    Mine is very tight. I personally like it. It makes it feel more solid, but it is not so tight that it is too difficult to put things in.

    Mine was very tight initially but after a couple of uses it has loosened to just tight. It feels fine now though some force is necessary to insert and remove.

    Me too. Still, I always keep a thin coat of Vaseline on male USB plug. Not only to make it smooth inserting, but to reduce contact surface oxidization.

    No problem here. It will get easier. The more you use it, the better it gets.

    Yeah, mine is super tight too. Actually difficult to insert a flash drive. I have to brace my Pro with my right hand on the right side and push it in with my left hand and it takes considerable force.
    I expect it will loosen up over time.
    At least i hope it does.
