Never happened frequently enough to get worried but its been happening since day 1 basically. Its not dust, it has good airflow, and isnt loud

Mine has had two freezes total. Once in the middle of Super Mario World (which was a pain) and the other while trying to access the home menu at the title screen of Mario Kart 8.

Systems just do that occasionally.
Every dang time...

To me it usually happens with netflix. The program works fine, but when I try to close the software and return to the Wii U menu, sometimes the Wii U freezes.

I don't think my Wii U has ever frozen.

The only thing of mine to ever freeze is my PS3, and only with GTAV online. Its weird.
My reaction when stupid people say stupid things -
The Wii U board is seriously just awful.

Mine used to sometimes, but I think it was fixed with an update.
It was usually when using the Youtube channel.

It's happened to me twice. Once on the day I got it and once about a week ago.

Just hold the power button for 5 seconds (I think it might have to be the console,) don't unplug.

No, and I've beaten quite a few Wii and Wii-U games on it. Probably have a couple hundred hours logged. Which version do you have?

Only on the browser.

I did have times where the games skipped and were choppy like a digital TV with bad reception, though.
