    If I listened to everyones problems here in the forums, my 2 year old pre+ should be in pieces now from decay. But its perfectly fine.

    Judging by the poll so far, the cracks are a rare occurrence. I have none and have been using it heavily for the past month.

    Got mine during the firesale, so far crack free. The first two weeks it had no protection but never left the house. After that I got a leather case for it.

    Fire sale TP 16Gb. First two weeks moderate use without case, always held with micro-fiber cloth to not get scratches on back....Now in case with light use, or on touchstone(still in case) in FB exhibition mode. No cracks.

    Opened 3 of 7 touchpads so far, 1 has a tiny crack on the long side of the usb port which developed within 2-3 plug-ins. Rest are fine. I am VERY careful with these things and made sure to insert the plug quite gently, knowing of the cracking issue from posts on these forums.

    the thread ask those who "doesnt have a crack", not "do you have a crack", so many who do have cracks may not come here and vote

    also, 15% cracking rate is not "rare", it's "bad", how many other product did you hear about with such a high flaw rate?

    no cracks. Kind of sick about hearing crack complaints to be honest. Many here only paid between 100-150, so take it for what it's worth.

Folks who don't have the problem will likely focus on something else of more interest to them and may not reply. By asking who DOESN'T have the crack maybe the replies will be reflective of a larger group.

    Don't worry, I'm using MY Internet, not yours, The flip side of that is it appears users with cracks may be getting tired of replying to polls about cracks since previous polls I found had 69 & 80 responding with cracks and this one so far has only 27 with cracks and 173 without and the other polls have 173 and 286 without cracks. So bottom line as of now we don't seem to have MORE lacking cracks, just less WITH cracks so crack apathy seems to be setting in...

    No crack here, unless its seriously microscopic. I am wondering if its heat or if the people with cracks have thrown their tablet into a bookbag or something that leads to the back flexing slightly. I would imagine there are plastic snaps near the speakers where the plastic back snaps into the frame of the device and I would also imagine that there are no snaps on the thin parts directly adjacent to the speaker. I think a slight flex of the back would cause stress in the plastic in those thin parts near the speaker eventually leading to a crack.
