    ".. Should I take the risk knowing that once I open the product from OD, I won't be able to return it? "

    When I purchased my 64gb a while back ... had reading the previous months via CB forum about 'the bulge', the recessed button, and a scratched edge/seal .... as soon as I paid for the unit and then strolled straight over to their customer service counter where I opened (factorysealed unit) to confirm none of these issues existed before packing everything up and theeen heading out the door. IF there had been a prob' I would have called over a csr to do a exchange with the other 64 still bk. on the shelf ... IF it has sold right behind me I would have asked for a ful refund since it was opened instore on cct

    The tablet would be under manufacture warranty. If you have any issues with it deal with them on it.

    My new playbook does not have the bulge in the back or the blueish tint. But the thing that's bugging me is that the screen is not very responsive compare to my old Playbook. I have to swipe several times(specially left or right) before anything happens. Luckily, I bought my Playbook using my American Express card which has a 90 day return policy incase the merchant does not take an item back. Hopefully a few more reboots will fix this problem. If not, I have to reconsider whether to exhange it at OD or just getting a refund through my credit card.

    My 64 gig from office depot was the last in the store

    No bulge no blue hue screen and the power button is raised much higher than my 16 gig. So far so good. I still feel like I stole something

    You won't be able to root it... But congrats anyway
    Why would you say that when I have rooted it.

    I wish I would have seen these, we probably would have picked up another one when we were in a town with several Office Depot's. That's where I bought my 1st 64gb.

    Just be aware about Office Depot return policy: No refunds if the original box is open, only exchanges allow.
    How will they exchange with a discontinued product that they don't have in stock

    Sadly all the Office Depot's in my area have all packed up and left.... I would trade in my 32GB one for a 64GB one.

    I think they also mentioned the $199 pricing for the 64GB version in Anders Jeppsson's "BlackBerry 10, if you are serious about gaming!" presentation as well

    I picked one up - and just to report there is no bulge on the back and the screen is perfect. I do not think these were made from "cheaper parts". The power button is actually better than my 32GB unit. Anyway - great deal - no compromises

    .. place the unit on a flat surface !
    Does it wobble or spin easily like a carousel !

    Congrats, your unit has a 'baby bump' !! Either "Don't walk but drive very fast to your" tah shame the reseller in a exchange for reason/finding(s) stated within prev. threads, or nuture for 9-12 months when it may just give birth to a shiny BB10

    Not likely. Stocks will be in short supply, IMO. And when BB10 comes out in 2013 Q1 (maybe?) PB prices should go up. Invest in RIM now!

    Office Depot has a Buyer Protection Plan at a reasonable price. It is only good up to 7 days after purchase, and unfortunately i threw away the brochure, so I'll have to check it out again.

    I found a 64g in Portland, Oregon. The cashier applied a $20 coupon for me so I got one for $180!!! No bulge and the power button is perfect.

    I plugged in my PB to wall charger to charge it. It's been 10 minutes but it still says 0%

    Should I be worried?

    Hmm. after 10 more minutes, it became 1%. How long does it take to charge? Does it usually take this long? or should I do stack charge regardless?

    I forgot that I only have a charger not a rapid charger. It's at 2% now. Not worried anymore lol. I almost performed a hard reset on my PB a couple hours ago
