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.
