    No Touch Cover Sound

    I had the exact same problem. It seemed to go away after connecting and disconnecting the touch cover a couple of times.

    WiFi Issues after February Patch Tuesday

    Hi all, I have just upgraded my Surface RT 32GB to the latest updates (February Patch Tuesday), and now my WiFi no longer works properly. It will sometimes connect and work for a short period of time, but it always drops out (and goes to 'limited'), often while trying to load a web page...

    Slight Bowing in Plastic Around Camera

    Hi Everybody. Had my Surface for about 3 weeks now, and it's a fantastic device. However it's not without its problems (bring on the next patch tuesday!) - but it's been getting better with every update. My issue is with the piece of black plastic at the top of the Surface where the camera...

    Loose volume rocker on surface

    Now that you mention it, mine rattles as other people have discussed - I swear it wasn't like that before! Also I think it makes much more of a louder harsh click noise when you press the down volume button.

    Angle of the Kickstand

    Yes, I reckon the trade off was worth it. I've noticed that it tends to be a little too steep often - but that's definitely not a real issue. Ideally I think there should be two angles - a steeper one, and a shallower one, provided it is implemented well. But as above, it's not a big issue...

    Anyone Have These Issues (List)?

    I have had issue 2. In regard to issue 4: Have you tried enabling Loudness Equalisation/Bass Boost? (You do this by going to the Desktop, right clicking/tap-holding on the speaker in the bottom right, 'Playback devices', click on 'Speakers', 'Properties', 'Enhancements', and then enable the...

    Anybody Else Feels the Touch Cover Needs a Cover?

    I can understand the difficulties ArnoldC faces - I live in New Zealand, so I'm really hoping that nothing goes wrong. I used a package forwarder in the US, so if I have to send a defective item back/replace touch cover it'll take me many weeks, and shipping costs to get the item back to NZ.

    [Poll] If You Bought the Surface, What Continent Are You In?

    New Zealand! I'm in the process of importing it from the US.

    If you could do it again... 32 or 64?

    While I haven't received my Surface yet (damn postal service), I would still purchase the 32GB version, as there is the room for expansion via the micro-SD card slot - you can even plug in an external drive if you have to!

    Lousy Video Playback

    If you do want to convert your videos, I'd recommend MediaCoder - it's free, and converts without restrictions or watermarks. The MediaCoder iPhone Converter will easily convert to MP4s which can be played.

    Just Curious: What are the users of the forum like in terms of technical know-how?

    Hi, Just curious about what the users of this forum like in terms of technical knowledge. Often I've found it's the more computer-literate that are keen about the Surface over the iPad? Do you reckon this is the case? Is Windows RT too confusing for your everyday consumer. Personally...

    First Boot - Things to Do

    Hm, from my knowledge of Windows 8 in general, I don't think it would break anything... it would just mean if something (software related) was broken it may be a little harder to trace down, due to there being a lack of logs (although if that situation occurred, you could probably enable it...

    First Boot - Things to Do

    In that case, I think I'll just use it normally! Hopefully I'll be fine. :)

    First Boot - Things to Do

    Hi, So I'm a soon-to-be surface owner, with my 32GB Surface RT w/Touch Cover arriving in New Zealand within the next couple of weeks. I've found this forum to be very interesting, but I'd just like to see if I can compile some information. When you first turn it on, what are all the of the...

    Surface AC Adapter

    Thanks for that! I'm importing one to New Zealand from the US, and I wanted to know whether it would work here! Only 7-11 working days to go :)
