    :eek: Now that is scary, Time to reinforce my usb slot :D

    I do notice when I plug in my adapter, it has to snap loud when I push it in, instead of an easy insert (not in a perverted way)
    I guess I have to make sure when I plug it in it has to be a 180 degree insertion.

    Oh Bronsky, ohh Bronsky
    You can't serve me like that, I'll be too tempted to smash it right back. I have all these comments about properly lubricating your USB port before insertion, or a USB connector needing to be firm and hard before attempting to insert it. But I guess this is a family friendly forum, so I'll have to abstain, something I might add I'm not very good at.

    Drawboard is probably the best of the metro style annotators. I use PDF Annotator for heavy lifting but it is not touch friendly.

    I had this to a small extent with the M80TA out of the box. USB port inserted everything at a slight angle.

    I bet this feature is present on more than a few out in the wild.

    Drawboard +1. Best so far to work with a stylus.

    I cast my vote for Xodo Docs. I found it more stable than Drawboard and it's free. Kicked myself for having bought DB first...

    Probably going to take this thing back soon before my 30 days are up. Since I picked it up the reports of digitizer failures have skyrocketed, and I've come to the conclusion this thing is built like a bug(hard on the outside squishy on the inside). Only a matter of time until my narcoleptic butterfingers self drops it again, and I'm starting to get paranoid instead of getting the most out of it.

    I really don't want to pick up a Surface Pro 1, but I also don't want to leave the store empty handed. Any suggestions for replacements?

    It is the only 8" Wacom tablet on the market as far
    as I know.

    Dell Venue Pro 8 has a Synaptics pen.
    But its pen is spotty and does not
    perform like a Wacom.
    It works OK as a pointer and minor quick notes.
    Just do not expect Wacom smoothness if you handwrite alot.
