    Where does SP3 rank in your Top 3 favourite tech/gadgets?

    SP3 by a mile. Maybe because it's new, but my favorite right now. Nokia 920 is a close second.

    SP2 warranty replacement

    Thanks GreyFox7. Turns out I can answer my own question. Shortly after posting my inquiry, I received an email from Microsoft Service that said the replacement SP2 was shipped. No complaints from me about the time, six days from replacement approval to shipping. Not a bad turn around, especially...

    SP2 warranty replacement

    Hi all - Just wondering how long it took other members to receive an Advance Exchange SP2 when replaced under Microsoft Warranty. I was approved for a replacement about a week ago and haven't heard anything regarding shipment yet. I had a S2 replaced a while back and the whole process went very...

    Backup/Restore why not?

    thank you JimB. That's exactly how I would expect it to work. Some of the similar topic threads made me think I was missing something. I'll use the backup / restore software I use on my desktops.

    Backup/Restore why not?

    I'm waiting on an Advance Replacement for my SP2 128. (sleep/Wi-Fi adapter problem) I've spent a fair amount of time installing software and setting my SP2 up and have it pretty much the way I want it. I would rather not have to reinstall and setup everything again. I've read through the threads...

    Strange problem Surface2

    Hi everyone. My Surface2 64gb has suddenly started spontaneously switching from Desktop to Start Page and back. It's switching back and forth with no input from the keyboard or mouse. I can hear and feel the small "vibration" that usually accompanies pressing the "Windows" key on the bezel...

    Upgraded to Surface2, but now websites showing up in "mobile" versions

    All true, but it has solved the problem for those occasional sites that are not compliant. No problems using it so far.

    Upgraded to Surface2, but now websites showing up in "mobile" versions

    I had the same problem with sites displaying as mobile versions. I found "UC BROWSER HD" in the store and use it for problem sites. Works like a charm, I'll continue to use it until MS fixes the IE problem.

    Surface2 - sound issues

    I'm thinking it must be a software issue and not a bad mechanical component. Hopefully MS will fix it with a software patch. Regarding the sound output on myS2: In my opinion, the sound was somewhat better on my Surface RT, but I'm not a sophisticated user as far as sound goes. I use my S2 for...

    Surface2 - sound issues

    Hi all- Wondering if anyone else has a similar problem. I'm encountering a glitch when switching between headphones and speakers on my S2. Basically when I disconnect the headphones, the speakers don't work or if I have the speakers working and plug in the headphones the signal doesn't transfer...

    Surface2 64gb - BUSTED!

    I pre-ordered my S2 64gb and received it October 22nd. Aside from a few out of the box resolution annoyances (text and icon sizes too small for my liking) I like pretty much everything about it. I've owned my Surface RT 32gb since the release date last year and now it's what I travel with. I've...

    OION: My apologies for the "onion" gaff

    Received my Surface 2 64GB. First impressions.

    Mitchellvii: you would think so, but it ends up being more complicated than that.

    Received my Surface2. Impressions so far...

    Onion: I ended up lowering my resolution. I don't see any degradation in quality. I'm still tweaking size setting in various apps. I found the out of the box image and text sizes were very difficult to use. My eyes are 20/20 so I don't think it's me. I've just about got things the way I want...

    Received my Surface2. Impressions so far...

    Well, I got my S2RT64GB yesterday. I also bought the Type Cover 2 backlighted keyboard. I've only messed with it for a couple of hours, but my first impression of the S2 is that it seems faster. I like the new grey/silver color. The keyboard keystroke depth is a bit shallower, but I like the...
