    I would think (coming from the technical service industry) that if you outlined the issue as described, someone at google/Asus would put in an extra few minutes with the device to verify that functionality issue. The two companies are not out to try to hurt us as customers. At this point the more defects they can find the better for them in designing future models; with the huge success thus far I can be certain there will be a new one when tegra 4 comes out...

    If the returned device was found to be fully functional, wouldn't they charge you the restocking fee rather than the full price?

    I say that because if you simply decide to return a working device, "Google will issue a refund in your Google Wallet account using your initial payment method minus any applicable shipping and handling and restocking fees".

    The US terms of sale doesn't specifically say either way when it comes to replacements, but I don't see the logic in them effectively charging you twice if you return a working device.

    Any time you return a defective device that sometimes works ok, make sure you mention the problem is "intermittent".

    That way if they can't repro the problem, they still take your claim seriously.

    Good call on the note. I think I'll go ahead and do that as well.

    You probably don't have to worry about making it worse. Mine suddenly became awful last night. Now the screen makes a loud popping noise when you push it in and the glue lets go and it comes back out again.
