GeneralMS Surface, PinprofessionalS Douglas21-Aug-14 20:50 
I've always wanted to like the Surface RT, it has all the features of a great tablet. Just complete epic failure when it comes to hardware and software integration. Prior to the latest patch I would have to reset back to factory defaults once a month. Then some patch would come along and I would loose wireless connection (loose as in the drivers would become corrupt). That issue seemed to be resolved however it opened new bugs, IE (the only browser available) would randomly crash, Bluetooth sorta kinda worked when it felt like it. I've called support only to be told the problems are network related for all issues (umm yea...) Tonight while trying to entertain some guests it would connect to the Bluetooth speaker for about 30 seconds then fail to see its even there. So in the bin it goes now...I know its not a problem with the wireless speaker as one of the guests was able to spin up music from his Android phone.
 
Microsoft wonders why the surface has done so poorly, from my experience of nothing but problems with it. That is a good thing people would only dislike MS even more if they ran into the same issues and had to deal with their support.
 
What is rather amusing about this is, I complained to my corporate MS rep about these problem only to be told "I will find someone to take care of these issues". That was over a month ago, not a word since then from him about this issue or any of the questions I posed.
 
This is a case where MS can't blame an external hardware manufacture for problems with device drivers. They own the foot print here. Instead they just blame the wireless access point...Blaming something else doesn't resolve the issues MS is having.
 
Tomorrow I go phone shopping (the replacement Nokia 928 I received about two months ago spends more time frozen than functioning) and android tablet shopping. There has to be something that just works without constant issues??
 
Does anyone have any suggestions??? I want a tablet and phone that can sync between each other, doesn't seem like to much to ask for?

Common sense is admitting there is cause and effect and that you can exert some control over what you understand.
