    The problem only affects about one per cent of these devices, according to Nvidia.

    Why are soo many nvidia products having such major manufacturing issues or pretty bad design oversights?

    Bad choices overall; the base console should have 32GB of storage; installing on sd card is not always fully supported and definitely not preferably to onboard storage. They really don't know what they're doing...

    I agree the internal should have been 32Gb as theres just 11GB free out of the box. However the Nvidia firmware does actually allows moving both the app and app data to the micro SD. Personally I just got the 16gb version and used a root app called foldermount to map folders to an external usb3 drive, which has much faster performance than a micro sd. Still not as fast as the internal flash obviously.

    You are aware they sell a PRO model and IMHO it's pretty clear they're trying to get most to opt for that as 32GB won't seem like much either once unreal4/unity5 etc games start going 4GB+ a lot. AS the OP mentioned usb3 works fine too (not to mention app/app data not being an issue like most) for the expansion of the small models. Your comment would make more sense if neither of these options existed.

    The 32GB option would only serve to up the price and that would have had more whining with not much more benefit. You'd rather get gamers to go 500.

    1% of a product containing a Seagate consumer grade hard drive are seeing a problem? Unless Nvidia are fibbing about the numbers I am struggling to see a story here, certainly not a major issue.
