    Surface Pro 3/4 Dock (brick): Worth it?

    I am in need of a dock that has ethernet and multiple monitor outputs (2 monitors). Doesn't have to be 4K or even greater than 1080p. I hear mixed reviews on the Surface Pro dock. Is it worth getting and has anyone had no problems with it?

    Dolphin Emulator settings for SP3?

    I see videos of it running on a multitude of games, but I get sound stuttering which slows everything else down. Anyone have good settings to use for Version 4.X of Dolphin? My SP3 is the i5/4GB/128GB version.

    MicroSD card unmounting randomly on SP3

    I have a Sandisk 128GB and I randomly find that the card unmounts at different points during the day. I haven't been able to pinpoint when it happens. I just realize that some programs won't load that were installed on the card and that's how I know. Anyone know how to fix this?

    What's the best battery life you've gotten from your SP3?

    I haven't used mine a huge amount off of mains, but I seem to get in the 5-6 hour range. What do you all get? I'm even tempted on getting the Power Cover (SP/SP2) just to have some external battery on the road. Anyone do this? I sort of wished Microsoft made an updated...

    Final Fantasy Type 0 HD (PC Version) Surface Pro 3!

    It works somewhat decently. I haven't lowered all the settings, but running on 720p and most settings on normal or off, it seems to be working alright. There is slowdown, but hard to tell if it is the throttling on SP3 or if it's actually lagging. Anyone else try this game?

    Surface Pro 3 Overheating with Windows 10

    I got my first overheat shutdown (thermometer icon) and the screen was quite warm. First time this happened too, even with Windows 8.1. With Windows 10, it's hard to judge what exactly is causing the issue. Anyone else run into this?

    Microsoft Support pulls through once again!

    So I've had issues with my AC adapter on the Surface Pro 3 and the charging indicator in the taskbar saying it's plugged in charging, and then saying charged (and vice versa), even though it's been plugged in the entire time. Status light on the cord doesn't flicker, the cord itself isn't...

    What's the best USB 3.0 HUB for Surface Pro 3?

    I'm looking for one that is reliable and preferably doesn't require an external power supply. Also, if it has a card reader that also reads formats like CF cards, that would be great too!

    Error downloading Project Spark from Windows Store...

    It keeps saying to check the file again and gives me an error code. I've tried over 5 times. The error when searched online says that the system doesn't mean the minimum requirements, but I have the i5, 4GB Surface Pro 3 which I've seen and heard works fine for Project Spark. Any ideas?

    Make SP3 stay on (screen off) while plugged in?

    I'm not too familiar with how Connected Display works. I have utorrent running and every time I leave and come back, the downloads will be at the same place they were when the screen turned off (and plugged into power source). Is there a way to configure it to be active only when plugged in like...

    Potential New User: Surface Pro 2 8GB/256 or Surface Pro 3 4GB/128 ?
