    Default To everyone whom own a Slate, please post you batchnumber/modelnummer and state of screen

    I think it would be a good idea to try and find some sort of pattern, since almost all people here have screen separation.
    If you own a Slate please post your serial number.

    Let us know what state your screen is in. (lifting/non lifting) This way maybe we can detect a pattern and find out which batch seems to have the weaker adhesive and which ones seem to be the good ones!

    THis is an example of how the serial number looks, couresy of Steve; HLVJ93CBB002xxP and here are changing numbers and letters: HLVJ93CBB002xxP

    Big thank you to Deathdemon, who provided the following info;
    HLVJ93CBA002xxP

    "P is just a control digit, so it does not make much sense to guess by it if device quality is good or bad;
    002xx is the serial number itself;
    A is the month of manufacture. 1-9 here are January-September, A is October, B is November and C is December.
    B is the year of manufacture. B corresponds to 2011, C corresponds to 2012.

    There is no info what the remaining characters mean, but seems that they indicate model and possibly some other minor changes. I hope Samsung had a good reason to change HLVJ93C to HLVJ93K, and hope that it's somehow connected to resolving quality issues, but it's just my guess."

    So far we have the following (Updating when I can):

    BA 11 Good 20 Bad (October)

    BB 21 Good 13 Bad
    (November)

    BC 1 Bad (December)

    KBC 1 bad

    CBC 2 Good

    New variation in the serial number is KBB instead of the usual CBB

    KBB 3 Good

    FBB 1 Good

    Reports are that people with screen separation say their Slates "creaked" when flexed, and the new replacements do not have this creaking.

    The bevel might be slightly uneven in some cases still, but the affected areas cannot be "pushed down", suggesting that adhesive has been applied, in some cases a bit more than others but the creaking is not there.

    Weight seems to be the same, though the new "solid" feeling may result in it feeling heavier.

    I would suggest that for those who are willing to do it, posting your Serial Number would be the best way to try to track this.

    Note that although you can find the S/N printed on your box, the S/N printed on the back of your slate (at bottom center on the back cover; the numbers are not easy to see because they are in dark gray) has an additional suffix letter. Please be sure to include that letter! In talking to other members, I am aware of at least three suffix letters: D, P and X.

    To get the ball rolling, my S/N is: HLVJ93CBB002xxP
    Delivery date was 15Nov11

    My screen appears to be perfect and the back feels solid.

    Screen and back feel fine. picked up at a Microsoft store on the 10th.

    EDIT: Spoke too soon. Screen appears to be coming unglued at the bottom between the Windows button and the right side of the screen. Grr. I pushed it back down, seems to be holding, but I'm probably going to try exchanging it next week regardless before the 14 days are up.

    Well this is my offering, fwiw...

    HLVJ93CBA006xxD

    Ordered on 10/08/11, received on 11/04/11.

    Had the "no sleave" - "image printed on box" packaging.

    Everything is perfect so far:

    No bezel lift, no flex really, had a few dead pixels once in a while but never the same and haven't seen any in a week.

    And it's a D - go figure.

    HLVJ93CBA004xxR

    Bought at MS Store Seattle 10/20/11

    Pretty solid, maybe 0.5 mm lift near the charging port, not able to be pushed in. No visible dead pixels, no dust.

    That said, I feel like my Fujitsu Q550 had higher build quality. Maybe because it was "Made in Japan?"

    Cancel that, I think mine's starting to come unglued after using the dock a few times (I updated my first post).
