    Tonight my six year old fumbled my bare naked Prime and it hit the floor. Same drop that shattered the hinge on his DS last year (I've gotten really good at operating on those.) The micro sd ejected, but I can't find a scratch or ding on it anywhere. I've been on it for a few hours - no damage apparent. Can't wait for my case to get here before it happens again.

    Well the metal case may be causing other problems but it seems to be helpful in this situation.

    Exactly the reason why the first thing I told my 7 and 4 year old boys MINE! Not yours!

    I think my heart would have stopped while it was in the process of falling. Happy for you that the Prime held up.

    Mine didn't hold up so well. It hit the floor right on the corner and the screen cracked all the way across. The tablet still works but there is jagged glass on the surface. Good thing I have the accidental damage coverage. Taking it to be fixed shortly.

    I suggest you immediately check your pillowcase for an infestation of cats and/or tiny rocks!

    lol. Yeah I guess my problem is that I have purposefully barely used it for the last 2 weeks waiting for invisible shield to come in at best buy so to already have a scratch when this guy dropped his with nothing is really annoying to say the least. I am just wondering if I have a defective unit that I should exchange but I do not have the wifi issue so am worried about that. Will invisible shield "erase" the scratch to where I don't see it anymore? I had a slight scratch on my phone and putting on a protector made it seem to go away and I can no longer see it

    I am so glad yours held up. Mine also was dropped and the glass cracked. I had to ship it back to Asus to get repaired. No clue what this is going to cost me.

    Same here. I think time will reveal they do not take drops well. I am definitely getting a protective cover. I loved the bare tablet, so thin, but my first drop was my tablet's last. Just like Beretta it continues to work, but has shattered glass shards all along the edge and cracks throughout. Too bad, I hate to cover the beautiful design.
