Initially wanted to make a trip down to your shop to test the surface of your tamper glass would affect the writing of the pen. Do you still have any demo ?


Who else bought the extended warranty, mine side seems to fail when trying to purchase it...

Just to share my experience with SP3.

Mine bought from ms online store. Its totally flat when rested on a flat table. Both front and back sides. I bought the i7 model.

I do experience the heating problem when I use it for a while, e.g. 8hours straight with display always on. Just installed updates, apps, one note, watch videos. The heating problem on mine not so bad. When I turn off display for a few minutes, the heat problem goes away easily.

Anyone knows where I can buy mini-DP to DP cable? Not easy to find..

Also has anyone purchased docking station for SP3? When does yours arrive? Ms store live chat say wait till 12Sep. But I suspect DHL already have it, they just don't want to release it yet.

can you see the curvature ? or is it a dent ???

and also, anyone notice the light bleeding issue ? on a dark screen, you can see light out of the edges of the screen

What you have here is the next version of surface pro....the Microsoft Surface Pro Curve - for that immersive surround experience.

If dhl have you will have a tracking code... . So its still most likely in some warehouse in china.


As for cables, HWZ got a few sellers if u need it urgently...but mini-dp to dp cables are pretty expensive here :/. Would recommend getting them from monoprice or eBay, amazon or something else.

it is more difficult to make curve panel and touch screen glass.
it will affect its touch accuracy if the front panel is curved compare to flat surface.

I don't think MS is adopting such design in the first place.
Since some customer got it flat and some curved, this is 100% definitely defect.

Should request immediate changes.

Just take note that there are 2 version of DP cable. Most sold here are v1.1. I ordered one from Amazon with v1.2 that can support up to 4K with audio.

If it is curved, it's definitely a defect. I'm glad mine is totally flat on surface. Saw one of the pictures a few posts back, it was super curved omg damn obvious it needs an exchange.

Yeah I agree those with curve that are super visible should change it.... mine is minor slight curve only, not that visible when put it flat. I can only say its a mm apart from the tablet.... ( The curve visibility from eye level when place on the table. )

But the true problem would be will they warranty this ? I know the pre-orders ones can send back within 14 days. But I wonder what is the rate of receiving an even worse one than the current one very scary...
