    Transformer Pad Infinity - TF700 - a few quick questions for new people

    So as I said else where I just bought my Infinity a few days ago, and I've had an IPAD 2 for about year and half.

    The IPAD 2 been everywhere with me, through hell and back as I say.

    Anyways should I be concerned of the Infinity?

    Basically I see two common threads that I didn't think were a issue but seem to be a big issue, or was this just the first few batches?

    1. Screen cracking, seems to be more reports than I first found out
    2. Screen cracking from cold -> seen a few users report that cold may be the reason why these are breaking
    3. Screen popping out, can't find the source today but I say reports that people say something about air bubbles and the screen coming out.

    Anyways I just want to make sure this stuff is just that, the first batch of items, and newer units are mostly unaffected?

    Reason I ask is I live in a frozen waste land of Calgary, Alberta i use my tablet in -20C weather often, not directly outside, but it does have to suffer in a bag and wait with me for up to a hour waiting for transit to get home at night.

    Or is this thing really as fragile as I starting to come to understand, and it should be treated like a rose?

    I live in frozen Minnesota. I have had a 'original' transformer w/dock keyboard, the 'prime' with its dock keyboard and now the 'infinity' with the 'primes' dock keyboard fully functioning. I have not had any issues with any of my tablet screens poping out or cracking. I carry my unit everywhere with me including into the outdoor cold weather. I do however have a protective case for the unit with its dock keyboard attached as well as one for just the tablet. I think of my 'infinity' as a fine camera and treat it as such. You should be just fine. Allow the unit to 'warm' up when coming out of the cold and into a normal heated area would be my suggestion.

    Welcome to the forum

    I am pretty confident that your tf700 will be fine as long as...
    1. You check it thoroughly for 100% build quality when you get it. As long as its fine (& 9/10 are) you should be fine
    2. You handle the device carefully, as intimated above
    3. You open the docked & closed combo from the centre of the tablet and NOT from either of the corners. Opening it from a corner can cause a twisting/flexing that may in some situations lead to a cracked screen

    You will find the links in my signature to be helpful in getting orientated on your new device & OS

    Yes thank you and thank you for the guides.

    I was thinking of rooting but it seems more trouble than it's worth.

    lol

    Glad to hear it's 9/10, those are much better odds

    You're welcome.

    With regards to rooting, unless you have a real need to do it (which, to be honest is not very likely) there is no need & nothing to gain. There is, however, quite a bit to loose. Warranty for one & the inherent security of the OS for another.

    Good luck with your new Infinity.

    Well, any device, you really need to be careful with trying to use when cold, or when moving from cold to hot. Heck, it can happen to car windows.

    I've had my Infinity for about a month, and I'm pretty happy with it. No problems. I'm in Canada also.....but I don't tend to use my gear outside. I keep it in a messenger bag, then let it warm up to the temperature of the room I'll be in. I think the instruction manual actually recommends NOT exposing it to low (or high) temperatures.

    True I don't use them in the cold, but they sit in a bag and warm up when i get to work.

    I just don't want it to far apart in route lol.

    but yes last night i check over the device again and the build seems fine.

    Honestly, in the last month, I've noticed mine feels pretty solid. I mean, it feels Motorola Xoom or Blackberry Playbook solid. Much more so than the TF101 I used to have.

    Don't abuse it, and I think you'll be fine. Put a case on it (if you're not using a keyboard) and there's probably nothing to worry about.
