Default Update

Received tablet number three today from Amazon. This one makes the clicking sound of tablet 2 and has the loose screen of tablet 1. Not sure what to do now.

Do I give up on the Infinity and go to the Nexus 7?

My Nexus 7 had a bad display and died within an hour of unboxing. Just ordered my TF700. Fingers crossed.
Devices:
Primary: Moto X GSM Developer Edition | Unlocked with Xposed | Waiting on ROMs
Secondary: HTC One - AT&T | ROM: ARHD 31.6 | S-Off
Tablet: Asus Transformer Infinity TF700 | ROM: CM 10.2

Wow that clicking is serious and that gap is definitely a defect. I'm starting to think I should have kept the first Infinity I had I had only minimal movement from the screen and no click. Hope the second doesn't have any issues. That click is serious lol.

I got mine from Amazon the day after release. No problems that I can tell. Mine probably came from the Phoenix warehouse.

Not sure if the warehouses matter but these are mine:
Tablet 1 (loose screen near left dock connector): Fernley, NV
Tablet 2 (the clicking sound shown in the Youtube video): Whitestown, IN
Tablet 3 (slightly less egregious clicking, AND screen loose near dock connector): Breinigsville, PA
Tablet 4 (?): Shipping soon and arriving tomorrow (I guess when you have 3 defective products they pay extra for Saturday delivery)

I'm feeling the same way. My first tablet with the loose screen (but no clicking) and the scratches it arrived with is starting to look pretty attractive.

Bought mine from amazon.de, which had screen separation and a dead love of pixels after a day, told them and they sent a new one a hour later. I currently have 2 until they send me packaging for the old one haha XD but the new one is perfect condition.very impressed with the service, but less so with the fact they are even sending out dodgy units. Our of interest what serial batch are yours, mine are both c7.

First tablet: c6
Second tablet: c7
Third tablet: c7
Fourth tablet: showing up in the next few hours

I am very impressed with Amazon's service. This most recent tablet was overnighted with Saturday delivery, which is far from cheap.
