And it wasn't sent to every ThinkPad W520 owner.  So it doesn't include a vast swath of machines.  Keep that in mind.

So, how many individual users of W520 do you believe exist? I've NEVER received any inquiry as to my satisfaction with my system. I suspect that noone gets this except corporate users.

W520, i7-2820QM, BIOS 1.42, 1920x1080 FHD, 32 GB RAM, 2000M NVIDIA GPU, Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD, Crucial M550 mSata 512GB, WD 2TB USB 3.0, eSata Plextor PX-LB950UE BluRay

W520, i7-2760QM, BIOS 1.42 1920x1080 FHD, 32 GB RAM, 1000M NVIDIA GPU, Crucial M500 480GB mSata SSD, Hitachi 500GB HDD, WD 2TB USB 3.0

Re: W520 Issue Poll on Notebook Review

like any poll on the internet, it reaches a limited audience and doesn't necessarily reflect an overall consensus.   those who have issues are more likely to be on a forum and therefore more likely to vote—especially negatively.   those who are happy are likely too busy using their systems to be on a forum or vote in a poll.


sadly, those who are actually happy with their W520 are being argued with and told that they're mistaken for being happy.   that seems rather counterproductive.


if you are having specific issues with your W520, it would be best to start a thread about it or join the discussion on an existing thread.   while a poll can be helpful in some circumstances, it doesn't work toward exposing or resolving issues.



since we'd prefer to see issues expounded in individual threads, this one will be closed.


thanks for understanding.

Call for your opinion on W520

[ Edited ]

Dear W520 users,


There is an opinion poll about the W520 on the notebook review forum about W520


So far, only a handful users have voted. In order to make that poll more informative and objective, more user opinions are needed. Please provide your opinion in that poll, regardless you have had good or bad experience with your W520. Thanks!
