    Twice by choice.

    Edit- Forgot about once when the browser wouldn't load any sites except Google. Wipe fixed that problem.

    Once just the other day. Suspected corrupt media file was causing some serious lag throughout the PB. With help and advice from others on here, I decided to do a wipe. The PB has been perfect since!

    Never, except when the guy I bought it from handed to me, but for his security.

    Restart many, not even when it drove me crazy cause it would turn on for 3 days and turned out to be it wasn't properly working the plug on the wall (hence no charge), other than that, pretty happy.

    I recently wiped my PlayBook only because I was having major lag while typing and a few apps were freezing up. Ever since then it's been running like a champ.

    I have had it since December 23rd. I would have wiped it regardless because sometimes you just want to start fresh!

    That's my input.

    My first PlayBook seemed to have issues often. I have a refurbished one from RIM now as an exchange for my old one with a dead battery. So far it has worked like a champ, I think better than the other one ever worked. So five or more on one and zero on number two.

    Several times by my choice as I was doing a lot of experimenting and I like to wipe before I do an update.

    Twice by choice. Downgraded from beta release OS versions.

    Once, recently. The main reason was that Android Runtime wouldn't launch apps/multitask even on the 2.1 beta (all versions). My Playbook runs a lot smoother since I cleaned up the media files/apps I wasn't using anyway. Now what to do with 10gb of storage space...

    Wiped several times by choice. Experimenting with os versions and always wanted to start fresh with the os. But never wiped because of any issues.
