    I suggest everyone get a replacement within the warranty period because it could become a bigger issue down the road. I haven't received mine yet but if mine is like that, as much as I would hate it, I would return it asap. I deserve a quality product that I don't have to "fix" myself.

    Here is a little DYI I am doing overnight to see if this will remedy the screen. If not I will return it.

    If you do anything like this please make sure you cover the back and glass front with a barrier to protect them.

    Do at your own risk.

    Did the same, watched about 20 mins of Transformers Dark of the Moon and its now flush and seems to be holding.
    Mine popped back up after a couple of hours...

    I don't wish that anyone gets a crap product but I do hope this happens enough where there is a recall or they acknowledge it and do something about it. Right now I don't even feel like using it until I get it fixed or something.

    What happens in a month or so when the whole screen gets loose? Is that even a possibility?

    My iPad 2 did the same thing. Pressing near the Home button then releasing you could hear the popping of the glue. I took it in and they replaced it without question. I suggest anyone with this problem do the same. Here's crossing my fingers that my precious Nexus 7 doesn't have this issue when it gets here next week.

    I noticed this when i got the tablet. Its gone now. I was playing some sonic and that ran the tablet pretty hot and i guess that helped fix the issue. I wouldnt worry about it personally. I noticed it when i woke up for a cat nap and was using the device.

    Well mine has popped back up again after a few hours of use. Either the glue didn't bond fully or the heat from the unit has unset it again.

    Think I'm going to get a refund and wait things out for the time being. My concern is that I get another that has this issue and have to waste time posting it back or that units that seem fine now may start to come apart too, if there is some underlying design problem that's causing this seperation.

    If nothing else it was one while it last even if it turned out to be a bit of a one night stand .

    I'm tired of messing with it, taking it back this week and waiting a bit.

    This is why you don't buy something on launch.

    My original Transformer had this issue. Sucks. Asus build quality for you.

    I thought ASUS built motherboards and the like? I had no idea they were in the adhesive business.

    Does that mean you aren't expecting Asus to provide a properly constructed product to the end user??

    I had it (just sightly and I'll be honest would have never noticed unless I had come across the thread) I watched transformers dark of the moon in HD and played some Sonic episode 4 part 2 which does tend to get the device pretty warm. I held that part of the screen down for about 20 mins immediately afterwards. Left it over night and mine hasn't come back since

    Guys, be careful about pushing down the glass on the left side. A guy on XDA cracked his screen by pushing it down with his fingers.

    I have a zero tolerance policy for out of the box defects. I don't care if it takes a month to get a new one, I do an exchange immediately. Especially for something like this.

    I feel like this is going to be a big issue, it hasn't officially launched yet and there are a lot of people with this issue.

    I'm curious how many more people are going to have this when pre orders start arriving.

    Same issue. Holding down for a bit temporarily fixes it.

    Its there still I can feel some creaking. But I personally don't care about it. I a, not too bothered by it. Now if the glass was literally coming out of the tablet a few more millimeters. Not returning it for this.

    Same here.. But hopefully us GP customers wont have this issue. (I doubt it though) From what I can tell though, all of these issues are Gamestop & Sam's Club purchases.. So hopefully only the (too) early shipments carried the defective units.

    Good call. Maybe the GS and Sams untis are really, really, really early shipped units that had uncorrected issues. HOPEFULLY!!

    This is why I wish Samsung made these. I was worried having no experience with Asus. I have a handful of great Samsung stuff. I'm expecting mine from the Google play store Mon or tuesday
