    Bay Trail performance is significantly better than Clover Trail. It is a night and day difference by most reports.

    I have had my April build unit for a month now, so roughly half way to the typical Wacom fail point.

    Yup, I was wrong. Last week started the self destruct sequence. I reported last week that on exactly 28 days after my RMA replacement of the I/o board, my pen glitched. I hoped it was nothing. Well, this afternoon, it did it again. Only this time I couldn't easily get it back.

    I had the same class 10 error on the device driver I used to get before RMA. Reboots didn't restore it. Disable and re-enable didn't work. The only thing that brought it back this time was to delete the wacom driver and let windows reinstall it. But those of us who have been down this road know, the self destruct timer has begun...

    Well, I think I figured out what happened to mine. I finally found an OTG adapter and plugged in a USB mouse. Per Asus' instructions I can see that the tablet does appear to boot up in WinRE mode because the light on my mouse stays lit. But everything else still appears DOA.

    So, I suspect that the LCD screen and possibly digitizer is gone. Boy I wish it had HDMI out, then this would have been much easier to discern.

    I'm guessing my LCD leaked?????

    Another one bites the dust....sadly.
    My repair sheet noted a LCD leak too, but my
    display still lit up.

    It is too bad there are so many failures, as this
    is a really nice device...when it works.

    The Wacom pen is more than worth the price.

    Got another call from Asus call center today, they wanted my permission to reformat it since all data would be lost. To me this implies that they will exchange the motherboard thereby loosing the eMMC as well. This is looking better and better.

    Received it a few hours ago.
    Apparently my model number is M80TA/DL004HS
    They had to attach it to a Windows computer in order to do a fail search. Seems it has a fan inside because that was checked too.
    Problem seems to have been the LCD panel and an attached digital cable those were replaced. A new OS image was installed (the recovery section is now 20GB). All in all it seems to work just fine now. Haven't installed the Wacom driver yet. Going to take it piecemeal so I don't make any stupid mistakes this time around.
