Hey guys, so this is just a little video I put together about the history of the prime!

I have a feeling that it should settle most of the flame wars. The bottom line is, although it is the best tablet out, I can't recommend it because of the "lottery" quality control asus has.

It's actually a very good and well done piece, IMHO.
It's good that this gets more mileage for Asus to really move its butt (not that they haven't, but they could do more).
You should have also mentioned the fact there still a lot of devices out there that exhibit none of the prevalent issues, as well as a lot of customers who are satisfied despite the issues (just to balance things a bit).

But, overall, as I've mentioned, it's a good piece.

Although it seems more than a few are wondering how Gary would feel about this Greg person you mentioned.

Ironically, someone else posted this before you did and it's up to three pages...

We don't have to always agree to get along. I know a lot more after participating in this forum than I did before. And what I learned wasn't always from people that shared my opinion.
