    I wanted to give you all some hope. I bought my 65gb model 3 months ago. I had all the pen issues that have been described, started after two months I've tried all the remedies that have been tried. My pen has died twice. The last remedy was simply to reinstall Windows .. twice. I am using a standard 8.1 enterprise install, not the factory for this tablet.

    I haven't had any pen problems for at least 3 weeks. I'm not sure why. But it seems solid. I've stayed away from the Wacom driver. I am just using the standard driver and any any updates that windows throws my way and, God willing, I've been good for a while.

    My message to everyone is.....YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP YOUR DEVICE!....

    try the windows install...a couple times if necessary. Yeah, the drivers need to be installed in some random order while you stand on your left foot and wave a dead chicken over your head. yes.... but, I believe it will eventually come back...and you don't have to wait 2 months for Asus to (probably) do the same thing.

    I've read most all the posts related to the AVN8. Here's the image that comes to mind when I read this stuff:

    There are only two devices like this....and the AVN8 is the best ...so...if you want to jump thru hoops...you might get burned.

    The ASUS AUTO-SELF DESTRUCT sequence has begun...

    How often do you intend to repost this joke?

    Probably as long as each new person who start experiencing symptoms withdrawals into a state of denial.

    Disappointed w/ the MS Surface event. No Surface Mini means I'm getting a VivoTab Note 8.

    This Bloomberg report said that MS backed off plans to introduce the Surface mini. Doesn't sound like there is going to be a Surface mini anytime soon.

    "Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella and Executive Vice President Stephen Elop decided that the product in development wasn’t different enough from rivals and probably wouldn’t be a hit,..."

    Thanks to that distracting Asus VivoTab Note 8 Owners Lounge thread, we are in danger of being overtaken by the Surface Pro 3 Monstrosity. So... /bump.

    I wonder how many posts/views this thread would have had by now if it were not for the QC issues?

    Maybe not as many, as everyonne would be happily
    out using their tablets instead of posting their
    theories on how to "cure" the auto-self destructing digitizer
