If someone could test their mic I'd appreciate it, I've downloaded Decibel Meter app, I can't set a workable mic level far too much inherent noise, in two minds whether to return for refund.

Would be nice if RAM is upgradable, 16Gb would be cool!
Re Mic... am having similar issues on the Linx 10: I deleted the driver and trued a windows reset.
You can improve it a tiny bit by fiddling with the volume vs boost in driver settings but unless anyone else has a mike that works properly, I think it's a hardware not software problem.
Assuming you've already come across these pics of the similar/identical cube iwork 10?

If anyone does open it up, could you take a look at the microphone and let me know if repositioning it might help. It looks like the pick-up faces the screen in the pic, but that might just be the pic!

Ah thanks!
Yes, was wondering if it was a unidirectional mic, directed at the hole in the casing
or just a standard headphone-like piece with a hole in the casing next to it, picking up a lot of background noise

I've disabled the mic and it still performs in the same way, I get lots of electrical noise not background noise either way :?:

Doubt RAM is upgradable.. unless you have exactly the right chips and are very handy with a soldering iron :shock:

I opened my first (faulty) Linx 10 with a standard black Dunlop guitar plectrum ran carefully along the bezel & rear casing. There's a set of fastening clips every 40-50mm. The power and volume button plastic rockers are not attached and will come away from the main logic board & rear casing - don't lose them.

Most components are held in-place with anti-static adhesive tape. This includes the battery, GPIO volume controls, radio antenna array, docking connector & cables.

The main logic board has a thermal pad / EMI / RF shield that's adhesive on the component side. This is partially held in-place by two screws that attaches the logic board to the screen.

On the main logic board there are headers for a motor (vibration function) that hasn't been used.

Most components are soldered onto the main logic board (Intel CPU/GPU, Samsung RAM, SK Hynix eMMC 32GB storage, Realtek radio). All these components are BGA soldered to the board - you would not be right in the head to attempt anything other than direct replacement (and then would need a BGA rework station & re-flow oven). There is no way to upgrade the RAM without replacing the entire logic board.

So the eMMC is not upgradeable either? I was hoping to up the SSD to 64G to allow it to run things like a VM on it (my work has a virtual laptop type solution - a few people have them running on a Surface Pro3) Unfortunately the performance of the MicroSD card is too limiting - I can only seem to get 1MB/s even with a Class10 card.
