    I don't really have a heat issue. Sometimes it gets a lil warm while I'm using it a lot on the
    charger but that's about it

    While I'm not a owner yet (a matter of days I hope), I may report few others found this heat issue too. Meaning this isn't a single case. So far, beside the uncomfort, it doesn't seem to lead to crashes from overheat but I wouldn't be confident on the long term.

    An other potential issue new owners should check quickly. In two cases, owners couldn't keep the mircoSD locked in the slot and had their tablets exchanged.

    I haven't had any problems with that here either.

    Here is the picture of the temp on the back of the two A510's I got. Unfortunately I'm just going to have to return them both and wait for something else.

    Mine gets warm on the right side as reported, but I would not even begin to call it hot. Itisn't even uncomfortably warm. I would have only noticed it in passing except that I was trying to induce as much heat as possible by playing videos, games, browsing, etc.

    My Samsung SII Skyrocket gets hotter. My MacBook Pro gets hotter and so do a lot of the tablets that I have used in the past.

    The operative word here is 'warm', not 'hot'. And yes, I know what 106 degrees is. It is warm. As in 7.4 degrees above body temperature.

    But this is with regular use? Meaning not gaming related use and browsing and watching a few youtube vids and the like?

    I find that interesting and slightly disappointing. I am just about to put in my purchase (it's coming out next week in Canada) but between some of the little issues (lock-ups... heat... and now the the weird SD card slot issue) I may have to hold off a bit more. I don't usually have a problem with Acer build quality, it's not terrible but it isn't top of the line either -- I have never had issues with reliability. It might be that, in their accelerated push for an 'Olympic' branded product, that a couple things are rough on the edges for the A510.

    That said, as much as I love Nvidia, heat has always been an issue too. It doesn't surprise me to hear that this chip runs a bit hotter and the Asus has a bit of a heat issue too. Unfortunately, it is also running cooler than the Acer is. Maybe that aluminum backing wreaking havoc on GPS and causing Wifi issues isn't all bad. Here's a link about the heat in the Transformer Prime for comparison from Tom's Hardware:

    I'm not having any issues with mine. I don't think you can put all your faith in those reports, it hasn't been out that long and not that many people have it yet, and more often than not the loudest voices are the ones with the problems, the ones with no issues may never say a thing. Also, the amount of people who post on these boards are a SMALL fraction of the total number of people owning said device. So I would try it out, and then if you have issues you can go from there, but I wouldn't just discount it because a few have had some issues.

    I received Mine and it was constantly freezing. Tech support told me to factory reset the thing 4 times until I finally gave up and returned it to Amazon. Went with the Prime instead.

    That stinks. I would have tried another one, one bad apple doesn't mean they all are. Like I said, I haven't had any problems with mine and it others on here seem pretty satisfied with theirs. The Prime by the way has a faulty GPS, you can get an ugly, free dongle though from them that fixes it, though it's more like a sled than a dongle.
