    i7 SP3 overheating issues fixed yet?

    Apparently, malberttoo you consider this to be a fact. Ok, let's make allowances for the bad behaviour of biased users but not anyone else. If someone asks an honest question and gets snark from other users it does nothing for the forum.

    Contrast Issues with SP3

    Yes, the original contrast is not very good. Have you tried streaming videos with dark scenes, are they not very dark anymore? If the change is only causing 20-30 mins battery loss, I wouldn't fret. What was your original battery life? Oh and sorry, I forgot. I think you lose that feature once...

    Pen Freezing

    Naturally, I reinstalled the battery right away. It seems to freeze much less, but it has frozen a few times in the past few hours. No one else is having this issue?

    i7 SP3 overheating issues fixed yet?

    A workstation would be absolute overkill for what Jack is doing. Are you two attacking Jack because you think he should be using something like a Dell precision to run those two programs? Entirely inappropriate from a courtesy standpoint, and well uninformed. Jack, I understand your situation...

    Hi guys, I've come across a problem recently. The pen will occasionally become unresponsive, sometimes for about 30-40 seconds. The trackpad does however work at these times. Has anyone come across this? Can it be sorted as it is a little annoying Appreciate the help!

    Surface Pro 3 Official MS Screen Protector

    It is quite expensive though. I will just deal with smudges by wiping with a microfiber cloth. Other than smudges I find it difficult to buy a protector because the screen can take the abuse unless you have cats

    i7 SP3 overheating issues fixed yet?

    Try the new unit out. The i7 runs the fan on very frequently though in my experience. It is the nature of the device. The reason I think you have a defective unit though is because it reaches that 90 degrees...that is too hot

    Kickstand loose and rattling

    My surface is a bit jiggly at certain angles. My roommate has one that is solid though. Quality control on the surface line is very bad in my experience. I went through 3 different surface 2's and my roommate has gone through 4 sp3's. So if it is just a minor imperfection keep it or else you...

    What to make of the thermal complaints

    I think there is some level of irrationality at play here. We do not need to compare the surface 3 to "vintage laptops" because that would be daft. We can compare it to the surface 2 The 3 is thinner and has a bigger screen, but it is slower and it heats up more easily. I have a surface 2, and...

    Bluetooth Headphones on the Surface

    Works like a charm with the BT headphones out of the picture. And I have done this on two different surfaces. I don't know if it can be taken for granted that cutting WIFI speeds in half is feasible for everyone.

    Contrast Issues with SP3

    I went through the tweak tool and the intel drivers before making this thread. No, it did not fix the darks.

    What to make of the thermal complaints

    My battery life is pretty good but I mainly use Office and work software rather than watching movies or heavy surfing when on the road. Thanks for the tips! What are FUDites? :)

    Bluetooth Headphones on the Surface

    It might be my connection is not as fast as yours; however, be cautions about saying "it'll be fine". I have issues with wIFl when my headphones are on. My speed tests fall drastically when the headphones are on.
