    I've dropped my VTAB a couple times (highest from about 3 feet) and was wondering if any of you could see potential for any interior components to have shifted to cause any performance issues?

    This seems silly, but I'm within the return period at Sam's and would consider taking it back and exchanging it.

    Any way to test potential issues?

    Probably not, there's no actual harddrive in it so anything to suffer damage would be apparent (cracked screen, etc) it surely wouldn't cause performance to dip as my next thoughts would be of overheating due to something being dislodged, but cooling on a tablet/phone is nothing like a computer, and probably doesn't even have a proper heatsink that could be dislodged, not to mention that these devices are usually engineered to take some wear and tear.

    but of course IMO and YMMV

    Maybe someone will make a rubber bumper similar to what you can buy for your smartphone.
