    Couldn't vote. In over a year it has crashed maybe 2 times.

    The only time it freezes is when I'm running Android apps. Other than that, never since the last update.

    Mine used to freeze up to twice a month for some reason that I never discovered. I really think it's the Android App Player causing it as I don't think it ever happened with OS1. Now that it's included in OS2, I've sideloaded many apps, some that never worked correctly. I realized that some on the Android apps I had sideloaded that didn't work I never deleted as I keep all of them in their own folders. After deleting ones I've not used much or were problematic at best, I've experienced no more freezing issues.

    Also, I do have the Android task killer sideloaded and pieces of the Android OS pop up that they are running like Android email, clock, and the picture gallery which is concerning because it will show pictures that I have on my PlayBook that I would think would not be accessible through the app player. These aren't apps that I've installed, they must just be part of the app player somehow.

    The one and only time I tried loading an Android app. That was it since last Sept and used every day. No crashes ever on work PB.

    Mine crashes back to the icon screen several times a day, where Im on the internet or just on Monopoly.

    Ive wiped it and re installed the software, to no avail. Now considering sending it back cos its virtually un usable at times.

    So disappointing because its such a good tablet otherwise.

    I have owned my PlayBook for over 8 months now and for the first time ever, while watching something on YouTube, the browser froze the entire tablet. I did not have an appreciation for how stable it was until this happened today.

    So now I am curious as to how many times your PlayBook crashes or freezes on you?
    Only since the latest os update, the browser closes on its own about 2-3 per month, nothing horrible but the current os update caused it.

    Has been 100% solid so far on the latest 2.1 beta.

    On the official 2.0 it was pretty bad...

    Once every month from a fresh restart. Then after the first crash it happens once every few days until I restart the playbook. It's really annoying. The menu shows that I have 300-400MB of RAM free but the playbook performs sluggishly until I do a reboot.

    I finally turned on all power saving features with airplane mode and I am happy with the rate the battery is used. The playbook went from 100% to about 97% in 24 hours of standby. I don't use the playbook that much now that I have a smartphone.

    Sluggish performance is fixed easily by a reboot for me.

    Never here. (Where's that choice in the poll?) It did get horribly laggy requiring a security wipe, but that and the lack of apps have been my only issues with the PB.

    When I was using older software I did experience the occasional crash, but with the current software its very stable & I haven't really had any issues yet..

    I've had my playbook since April last year and it might have frozen twice since .. both times due to Android apps. Since .668 Android apps are more stable than ever .. I use at least 3-4 hours/day with over 50 loaded apps (native and android)

    So in answer to the poll, there is no option for "once in a blue moon"

    2 playBooks , both on 2.0. Certain Android Apps freeze daily on both tablets. Have never had a browser or regular App freeze/crash. Therefor , I vote Never.

    I voted for less than once a month. I do not include the 688 OS time.
