Mine does get warm, but it never crashes or reboots so its not as major as some of these cases. Although I have modded mine a bit removing items I'll never use so this may have helped. I'm thinking of applying a heat shield internally to the back side to reduce the heat on the back cover... Other then this the tab is great. How about those speakers??? Awesome for movie watching.

I ran the Setcpu stress test for 20 minutes. At the time it rebooted. And it wasnt all that hot...I am sending mine back.

You might want to try that test just to make sure it is ok before you mod it..

A 20 minute stress test is quite a workout and goes high above normal operation. I've played games and watched movies for longer then 20 minutes without issues. I guess I can give it a try but not sure if that will help me since I wont be running stress tests during my normal daily usage. Thank you.

I am definitely sending the acer back

jr.com is the only (reputable) US retailer, who has the Infinity posted for pre-order.

True....But then the question becomes when do we decide if the tab has an issue or not?

But tests to be run to determine if we have a tablet with the issue?

And one other question, Itchiee. I am sending mine back to get the asus Infinity...Is there a reason why you would prefer this one over the asus?

I like the build quality of the Acer it feels solid, also the ideal speaker locations for multimedia...

I'm a little leery of the build quality of the Asus, which has been mentioned in some initial reviews, and from watching it happen on the previous 3 Asus models (Signal-gate on the Prime). The speaker placement on the T300 and now the T700 seems to been non ideal for a tablet. They are on the back and right next to each other... I cant figure out why they did this making it essentially mono sound that faces away from the user..... Reports of back-light bleed which has plagued earlier tablets before. The back does scratch easy on this model as I've read a few reports, and it was pointed out in a couple of reviews.

Other then that the Asus has a killer screen, and it comes higher clocked which can help with the higher resolution, and has a newer Tegra 3 chip which helps... And of course we haven't heard of heat issues.

Itchiee,


I cant argue with you at all. The Acer does have an excellent feel about it, and the screen is fantastic...


But with the asus coming out in 2 weeks, it is hard to just not go that route and pray the screen is ok...

Oh well, my wife has the A100 and she loves that thing. I hope I love the asus.

30 minute Stress Test, no reboots. The back was hot though....


Yeah, you can always return and try another Asus if you get a lemon (Buy from a reputable place no matter the cost). I was going the Asus route originally with the Transformer but with all the early issues I bought the Galaxy Tab 10.1 instead... Still running fine, no issues. With it finally getting ICS it should make for a nice tablet for my girlfriend who doesn't care about full HD. After this Acer i'm never going back to 1280x800...ever.

Good luck!
