    Anyone else's TP have a creaky back when you are holding it and release or when you press softly in the back middle?

    Yeah, same thing here. I'm assuming there's some empty space behind the middle of the back cover..

    I have it, too. Seemed to show up after it was returned from having the screen repaired, though. I have a second Touchpad in a cover/case and so I can't tell if it has the same issue.

    No problems on mine.
    And I clean the back cover every day.

    I had that same thing. Cheap hardware if you ask me. One of the reasons why I sold mine after a week.

    yes. . . but only when squeezed in the center. . .

    let's face it. . . the hardware isn't the highest quality. we have enough threads to verify that lol

    I have two Touchpads -- one has a creaky back and the other does not. The creaky back one also has a slightly recessed home button, while the other one is perfectly flush with the screen.

    No creaky backs/cracks on my 2 TouchPads, solid builds.

    Yep. . . same with the recessed button.
    However, all 3 that I've played with have had a recessed center button lol . . . I've heard rumors of a mythical TouchPad that has a flush center button. I think it's a white elephant

    The way these things are made I can't see how a touchpad WOULDN'T. creak. Its thin cheap plastic with space between the back and innards.

    I have two Android tablets in the house (G-Tablet and Zoom) and the Touchpad build quality exceeds them both. On the Touchpad, the back is actually glued to the battery for stability when manufactured so perhaps yours has separated. My G-Tablet has a back that gives and creeks since day one, but I never really viewed it as a manufacturing defect. After nine months it still works fine and I hardly notice the issue.

    My TP had a creaky back right out of the box, but it was fixed after I sent it to HP to fix my cracked case.

    I haven't noticed any of the other tablets that have a plastic back creak/crunch like the TouchPad does--Transformer, Tabe 10.1 & 8.9, or the PlayBook. I'll will give a closer inspection the next time I'm in Best buy.

    I agree. I have an eee pad too and the plastic is much firmer. You really have to press hard to get any creak out of it but no one would squeeze that hard.

    I actually was thinking that was the problem. I dont think im going to send it back just for that since my eee pad is my main tablet. I might end up selling the tp eventually. Thanks for the insight though.

    My Touchpad (finally) came today. It, unfortunately, has a creaky back and is loose on the left side. My dad's feels much more solid. I could just be imagining it, but his seems a tad heavier too.
    Besides the build quality issues I'm really loving the tablet though.
