If its only affecting a few devices im thinking about sending it in as its actually woke my wife up a few times (shes a light sleeper) when im gaming in bed. Thanks guys.
There was a pretty large thread on the Nvidia forums about this. Their engineering team basically has told support that the d-pad clicking issue affecting some devices is fine, and won't affect the longevity of the device. *grrr*.
Mine had a really bad clicking noise, hitting up, and a quieter but still annoying click hitting right. It made me completely not want to use it. I pushed the issue with the online chat support people, and they overnighted me a replacement with a return label.
