    Any news about fixing this stupid hinge ? @iaTa did you decide to open your RMAed laptop ?
    I wonder if Asus is acknowledging this issue and is looking into fortifying the hinges after so many returned laptops... @Asus_USA

    IC diamond is a good choice, just make sure you press down to help spread it while tightening the screws.

    Avoid Samsung SSD's like the plague. Go with Crucial or Kingston or better yet Sandisk.

    Issues where it can slow to a crawl. Wear leveling isn't working. Two firmware updates and still isn't fixed:

    http://www.extremetech.com/computin...d-performance-issues-being-prepped-by-samsung

    those show 840 but the taste is bitter in most people's mouths at this point. 850 seems better, but only time will tell. Although I'm tempted by the 2TB 850 Evo. It has an all new controller and different implementation than other drives.
