    Hard Shell Case for Surface Pro 3

    Thanks! The drop test doesn't show the results. I can see the case came off in some cases, but no close up of the surface for dents or scratches. Unless the point was to show that the surface screen didn't crack.

    Surface pro 3 external optical drive

    Thanks for the reply. From what I've read, plugging a USB Y cable into the surface pro 3 power adaptor usb port should have been enough to power it. Maybe I got the wrong drive or wrong usb y cable? Do you know of any powered usb hubs that use a USB to power rather than a DC power adaptor...

    Surface pro 3 external optical drive

    Is there an external optical drive that will work with the surface pro 3? I bought a LG GP50NB40 from Amazon and it worked at first with one USB (installed office), but then when I tried to install the Sims 2, it kept ejecting itself. I eventually got an "overloaded USB port" message. I...

    Hard Shell Case for Surface Pro 3

    It's about in line with the urban armour gear.

    Hard Shell Case for Surface Pro 3

    That's what I thought as well! I wonder how much weight it adds to the surface though. That would be my only concern.

    Surface Pro 3 Headphones/speakers problem

    I recently discovered an annoying audio problem with my surface. The sound coming out of the speakers works great! However, if I plug in headphones, it still comes out of the speakers. I've tried stopping the audio, then plugging in the headphones, but it still didn't work, even though it...

    Hard Shell Case for Surface Pro 3

    Just found this on the Microsoft site! Anyone know anything about it? http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/productID.316840300

    Surface Pro 3 through airport security

    Thanks! My flight was today and I had no issues with it in its sleeve in the zip off laptop compartment.

    Surface Pro 3 through airport security

    That's true. It also depends on whether they see it as a tablet or a laptop. I've never used a laptop sleeve inside a bag before so I wasn't sure how that would work. I'll have to see what happens when I get there.

    Surface Pro 3 through airport security

    Awesome! I'll just put it through in its sleeve as planned and see how it goes then. I usually fly allegiant and they (annoyingly) still make you put all devices away, but I think I'm on Delta on this flight so I'm glad I'll be able to have it out during takeoff and landing. Thanks!

    Surface Pro 3 through airport security

    I'm taking my surface pro 3 on a flight for the first time later this week and I have a question regarding airport security. I have a Timbuk2 messenger bag that is tsa friendly via a separate back compartment that folds flat. The back compartment has a sleeve to hold your laptop, and when I...

    Hard Shell Case for Surface Pro 3

    I would agree that $130 is expensive for just a screen cover, but the keyboard is meant for more. I think the majority of people who bought the surface bought the keyboard cover because that's what makes it a hybrid machine. I'm also angry that MS charges extra for the keyboard, and it is...

    Warranty Options for used surface pro 3

    Probably a silly question, but what do I ask them? Do I tell them that this is a used unit and ask what the dent appears to be and if they can do anything about it?

    Warranty Options for used surface pro 3

    That's what I thought. I thought it was odd for it to have been dropped there and have no damage to the screen. I've read it's impossible to replace these screens, so the drop must not have damaged it. It doesn't bother me since I don't even see it when the keyboard is clicked in. My main...
