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.
