    Question for you Tab 10.1 owners. Do you own a Galaxy Tab that is problem free and does not have any quirks or weird/annoying characteristics, such as screen not fully waking from sleep, or wi-fi not turning back on after waking from sleep, or browser crashes or dust under the screen...And was it your first one, or did you have to exchange?

    Just wondering for my own curiosity, whether it's worth it to try to exchange, or if I should just live with my quirky Tab. The screen sometimes does not turn on all the way after waking from sleep, and just shows a black screen with the backlight on. Not the end of the world really.

    I had the screen wake issue, but then I did a reformat and it seemed to fix it. I am running a Touchwiz rom right now and also don't have the issue. Other than that, my tab has been problem free.

    I got mine 2 days ago. Mine works perfectly (knock on wood), if mine had problems I would return it in a heartbeat.

    From what I've seen around the net the Gtab is quite good quality wise, and it was a big part of the reason why I decided to get the Tab instead of the Transformer.

    As for my own experience, mine was pretty much perfect, no dust, dead pixels, creaks or anything of the sort. If I were in your position I would definitely exchange for a new one as it sounds like yours might have a hardware problem.

    If you bought yours from Best Buy, make sure that you're getting a new one, as I've read some complaints about Best Buy giving customers used units when exchanging.

    I've had my first one for a week and it doesn't have problems except that the screen gets Newton rings if you press it really hard near the bottom left corner. (I never need to press it that hard though)

    I had the first one for about an hour (never turned on or showed it was charging), second one has no issues except for the disappearing weatherbug widget, which I think is a software bug, along with not being able to sign into my Samsung account. I expect software bugs to be fixed with updates.

    So far so good, just purchased the 4g model a few days ago. No noticeable faults so far. Running and looking like a champ. Only quirk is I cant organize my bookmarks and cant find task manager.

    Mine has been flawless from Day 1 - return it if it has problems because that is unacceptable.

    I have had mine for over a month now and it's been fairly problem free.

    If I were you I would not worry about what others are experiencing. If your Tab is not performing to your liking then take it back and exchange it right away.

    Another poster mentioned to be careful and make sure you get a new unit, and not one that is simply "new" to you.

    Wait what? You had the same screen wake isue where you try to wake from sleep the backlight turns on but it just shows a plain black screen?

    And it's gone now? What kind of reformat did u do? Normal factory reset, or some kind of other hard reset/reformat?

    Thanks everyone for contributing your 2 cents! :-)

    Mine has not had any of the issues you're describing. First unit, good from day 1 except for the annoying samsung account crash every bootup.

    I have the WiFi wake and lock screen issues. Still stock. Pretty sure it is SW related and will eventually be fixed.

    I am on my third tab. The first one was a 16gb model and it kept freezing up after only two days of use. The second was a 32gb tab and it would not boot after it had been charged for an extended period of time. It would get so bad that after three days of ownership it took me almost 30 mins to get it to boot, when it was booted it had 98% battery and worked fine until the next long unattended charge. The third tab is a 32gb as well and so far so good, one thing to note is the third one is an unlocked tab.

    I still have it on mine... though I'm happy to report after rooting and flashing to CM9, the problem has gone away. =)
