    Question Office Depot Shipped New Prime with Very Low Serial Number

    On Friday, I received my 32GB Prime from Office Depot. The serial number is under 9000 (the last 4 digits). I have been reluctant to open it based on:
    A) The low production number seems to have more problems
    B) It seems that most other vendors are now shipping units in the 30000 to 45000 serial number range
    C) I still have a 64GB Prime on order with Amazon that's at least three to 6 weeks out
    D) Opening the box may impact my ability to return it and/or sell it at a premium on Craig's List

    If you have a TFP with a low serial number, please (especially if you just received it from OD), Please reply with your experiences both positive and negative, from this compiled list of common complaints below:

    A) Wifi connectivity, strength and persistence
    B) Screen quality (vibrant vs. washed out)
    C) Pixel issues (missing or stuck)
    D) Squeaky frame
    E) Battery life,
    F) GPS
    G) Unresponsive Multi-touch zones and/or
    H) anything else I missed

    I recognize that people usually only post when there is a problem. So if you have have a 4 digit Serial number please respond. Let us know about your Serial number as well. My Tablet is 085XX

    Thanks (and Happy New Year)



    I added GPS to the list

    I just looked at the last 4 serial numbers and it is...083XX.. wow its way under 9000. Should I be concerned or contact Staples or Asus for a replacement asap?

    Just trying to gather data points. I don't think there is a need for concern, especially if you don't have any problems!

    I have 036XXX with minor light bleed at the right edge if holding it landscape. Other than that there are no other issues I have come across yet.

    Just open it.. If there are any issues return it to OD for exchange... Your odds are good that you will receive a good unit...

    There is little room for concern just open it. mine had stuck pixels. something that will not be hindered by low production #'s. There is very little relevance with dabirds #'s he has given...

    There are videos on youtube on how to get rid of dead pixels..I haven't had the need to try it on anything
    but hey if you have a dead pixel or 2 it's worth a try.

    I have an OD TP with an 8xxx serial #. No issues here except GPS. Screen is perfect and wifi is great so far.
