Reinstalled OS on my early adopter PlayBook. Recommended!
I bought a new PlayBook for my brother for his birthday, and after playing around with it for a while it became clear that something wasn't right with my original PB. I bought it right after it was launched, and it seems incremental updates vs a clean install doesn't add up to the same performance at all.
So I did a security wipe and reinstalled the OS, damn... Now it's really blazing again! The browser isn't lagging like it did, and all is swell
So.. I recommend reinstalling your software after doing a security wipe. it's like getting a new PB.
(back up your data and everything before you do.)

I bought my second PB almost a year after the first one and haven't noticed a difference between the two in performance. That being said, I keep a clean cache and history, don't sideload, haven't had any botched or questionable updates, delete through DM any questionable apps and haven't performed any wipes. That may or may not make a difference but I see a lot of issues associated with sideloading, interrupted/failed updates and wiping. The only advantage I see for an OS reload would be if you have corrupt files, problem apps or issues from botched updates. Same as a PC with the same issues, including registry errors, of which there are programs to remedy that without an OS reload. To my understanding, a security wipe only removes personal data, nothing more. My opinion.There are trolls in BlackBerry clothing among us. Report and never reply to obvious troll posts, they will die without responses from you.

I'm thinking its about time I do this with my 7 minute reboot time, I can do a wipe but my understanding is that it isn't as complete as a reload, How would I go about a reload of 188.8.131.524?
