    ...from a software stability standpoint. The Surface 2 is sadly not ready for primetime.

    I LOVE so many things about the device (even posting effusively about it here and on CNN) but after living with my 64GB Surface 2 for nearly two weeks, I simply cannot believe the number of black screens, lockups and reboots I am getting. It's a daily occurrence at a minimum.

    Yesterday's big update didn't change a thing sadly. I was so hopeful! I also see many screen rotation (make that no rotation) issues and have even had a failure to charge too necessitating a hard reboot. I barely have any apps loaded up so it's not an app causing this I'm certain, especially after reading about the same complaints by others.

    Hard to believe there are so many stability issues on such an amazing device but I can say that this will be a machine for a very limited audience unless Microsoft can get its act together very soon. The general public just won't tolerate this, especially considering iPads and Android tablets are very stable, if nothing else.

    I can't help but agree. I love my surface 2 but have been having very similar things happening with mine... Blank screens, rotation problems, and a weird screen glitch (a kind of flickering tear across the screen sometimes). I hope they sort this stuff out soon.
