What you are reading is about the problems some people have with their Surface. What you are not reading is about all the people who are not having problems, mostly because they don't have a reason to participate if everything is working. I personally know several Surface owners who haven't had problem 1.
If my customers had problems with their Surface tablets I would have been the first to hear about it. The only issues I have heard about were Windows 8/8.1 questions.
Totally agree. Usually you read about people that have questions and "issues". Any way in few months you can buy a Surface Pro 3 free of most of the issues that your have found here or in other forums. By that time I will have enjoyed already long hours using this device.
