Reports indicate that the pen's pressure sensitivity function with programs such as PS were not working and users had to go to the pen manufacturer for updated drivers. Heat is a problem for higher intensive applications and has been widely reported. Slower performance than the SP2 both with apps and WiFi have also been reported. There are several other issues reported that need not be listed to make this point. This is not a new product, it is version 3. It should not have been released with these issues, especially heat and slower performance. I love my SP2 and was surprised how quickly Microsoft released the SP3. There was no reason it had to be released so quickly. I hope the Surface line survives but I can't see how it will when plagued with so many issues regardless of their cause, software or hardware.
Legacy versions of Photoshop uses a antiquated driver called WINTAB, it was co-created by Adobe and Wacom, there is a WINTAB Driver available for n-Trig pens developed by Adobe and n-Trig, ironically Adobe has abandoned WINTAB in their latest version of the CC and have embraced the Windows Native Ink API.
Plagued is too broad a term... at the end of the day why tear down that we don't understand....
