    Ive had my DV8P for about 4 months now. Have 32GB version. I quickly ran out of storage after installing the essential software for me, PS CS6, and a few others, and syncing my Skydrive to download all content locally. I have a 64GB MicroSD card in it for additional storage, but even after telling windows to put all Video, Photos etc on the SD i still had issues. I found a nice tweak online, to use an edited USB/Removable disk driver to make it appear as a local drive and not a removable drive, which allowed me to change the location of where things are stored. So now the entirety of my user folder is stored on the SD, as well as apps installed, music, photos, video etc. This freed up a ton of space on the tablet, and allows me to sync everything. I also purchased the new version Stylus, and it works flawlessly for me. I use it for work, i travel all over the country and it is by far the most convenient PC i have ever used. It does get slow occasionally, usually when i have a few word or excels open, but since they are all stored on the SD, and its not terrible, its not much of a bad trade off. i use an OTG cable to attach all kinds of things including a wireless mouse and keyboard for when im working in the hotel or at home at a desk, it works great no issues, also use the Microsoft wedge KB and mouse and havent had any issues there either, i just got those recently, to free up my micro usb for charging or other devices when i need them. i have a micro usb to lan adapter for when i need a direct connection to a server or switch that im working with and that works flawlessly as well. I have been looking at purchasing a couple other accessories for it when traveling, such as the Pluggable adapter int he previously posted video and Asus makes a nice 14 inch chargable portable monitor that is only 8mm thick and operates through USB, havent decided which way to go there yet. All in all it is a fantastic device and i would recommend it to anyone.
    Can you give the link for the SD tweak?
