    How is the backlight uniformity on the SP3?

    Just curious if the backlight bleed on these is once again prolific.

    No longer have my Surface Pro 2 and feel depressed

    To check for dust and specks, you can use file explorer or some other application with a white background. For backlight bleeding, turn up the brightness all the way and run the "blank" screensaver, which blacks out the screen. The truth is that these issues are practically invisible during 90%...

    No longer have my Surface Pro 2 and feel depressed

    Long story short, I took a gamble on returning my month-old Surface Pro 2 for another because of defects (piece of dust under the screen, stylus clicking by itself in the corner, and backlight bleeding). I ended up going through two units in the store and both had dust trapped under the screen...

    Psychotic stylus behavior in corners!

    Just curious if anyone has this issue. On my unit, if you hover the stylus at the very edges of the top or bottom left corner, the pen will begin rapidly tapping by itself despite it having no contact with the panel. I've found that this makes Chrome nearly unusable if you decide to go back a...

    Superior WiFi speeds on Surface Pro 2, Why?

    I brought my SP2 into the kitchen while making breakfast and was stunned that I was able to stream uncompressed Blu-ray.

    Wear clothing with pockets or get a real bag.

    My fans go crazy whenever I play back a movie.

    Is there a way to turn off touch for pen-only input?

    The palm rejection works great, but the problem is that my palm tends to hit the panel before the pen comes into proximity of the sensors. Is there a way to turn off capacitive touch completely, so only the stylus may be used for input?

    Intel HD 4400 control panel?

    Adaptive brightness seems be on even after installing Intel's latest HD. Why is it that Intel only allows you to change the setting for on-battery? I am clearly getting fluctuations when my unit is docked and plugged in.

    Intel HD 4400 control panel?

    Thanks, that definitely did the trick. The problem is that I was experiencing the brightness fluctuations when docked and plugged in. Hopefully this still addresses the issue...

    Intel HD 4400 control panel?

    Weird, I don't see any option in the Intel HD control panel for adaptive brightness options. Also, the video tab crashes the program and the 3D tab doesn't show anything.

    Intel HD 4400 control panel?

    Does anyone know what drivers I can download to access this in order to fix the adaptive brightness issue? I've tried a couple from the Intel site, but none of them want to install.

    Anyone have a Surface without backlight bleed?

    I brought home three and all had problems. The ones that didn't have minor bleeding had dust trapped under the screen. Also, I'm kind of scared to really confirm it, but I think connecting it to the dock actually creates/increases backlight bleeding by the ports.

    Anyone have a Surface without backlight bleed?

    When is this crap going to end? Every time I buy a device with an IPS screen, I get some kind of ridiculous backlight bleeding. My Surface Pro 2 has obvious bleed at the lower edges. It is definitely going back. Anyone lucky enough to get one with absolutely zero backlight bleed? (No, I...

    Pro 2 Stand Defect

    The build consistency on this thing stinks. It's a shame, really. If you look at mine from the side, the kickstand isn't even flush with the main panel.

    Can you return/exchange an online order at a physical Microsoft store?

    The website specifically notes that you can't, but some people claim you can. Just making sure.
