If it is obnoxiously inconvenient I might return and wait for TF700.

It should not be bad if you got one of the newer models. In my place I only see a 1 bar drop and that is only if I hold it in a weird position. I also, receive about 7-8 other WiFi single that are at about 60% - 100% in my area. I also, tested it outside (About 2 stories and 240 feet away and I still got about 60% - 80% single) and was able to stream HD videos from Amazon without no interruptions...

As for the GPS, I never had any problems. Only used it couple times though.

Those screen protectors are not worth it. They're a-lot of hype. The Prime screen is scratch resistance. My phone has a similar screen to my Prime and it still looks like knew 6 months later.

Yeah, I see Asus' North American facebook page getting spammed with questions about it... So much for mid-February. Or "as early as last week".

^^^ Still = sell?

Btw, I never messed with changing my Prime to performance mode since I tend to use it the whole day and prefer a longer battery life, but man what a difference. I didn't think it would make much of one, but it does. I play Fruit Ninja THD, and it was a little chunky; almost like it was running at a low-ish frame-rate. Didn't think a whole lot of it. Then, I changed it to performance mode, and what do ya know, smooth as butter.

I love my Prime.

Haha, in my fraternity after meetings we will go around and have a "Proud to be a Phi" thing where everyone says why they're proud about being a phi, and end with that phrase.
But, I'm definitely proud to own a Prime. haha thumb.gif

After a couple of emails to ASUS it seems the problem with my dock sometimes not recognizing USB sticks and SD cards isn't widespread and is an individual problem, ontop of that ive now noticed a dead pixel on the left side of my screen frown.gif

This is my second prime with problems, I really like the device but it seems the build quality isn't upto the standard of their other products. Im not sure what to do though, there are no more primes in for me to exchange it and tbh im not sure I wanna take the risk of a third unit as knowing my luck itll have some other problem too.

Im thinking now id rather have it RMA'd so they can repair the 2 issues, that way I know it won't have it anymore. Otherwise ill have to refund it frown.gif

Yeah, I've noticed some light bleed on mine that is only noticeable on a black screen (which isn't very often), but it's a little unnerving to know it's there. Other than that though, I'm happy with it overall. Wifi performance can still be a bit hit or miss. For me, luckily the pros outweigh the cons at the moment. Sorry to hear about your luck with your Prime. If you read anything over on the xda forums, it's nothing but complaints about "defective" Primes.
