I am facing extremely poor quality of inbuilt microphone from day 1.
Even after re-installing complete windows 7 & Linux, I am facing same problem.
While in audio conference, the other side can barely hear me.
I am thoroughly disappointed after buying one of expensive Lenovo tablets.
I have 3 yr top seller warranty!
What are my options? can I get a new unit? or refund? Its only less than 1 month old.
Bought in UK, but now residing in Europe.

I had the same issue, but it is very easy to solve it: make sure that VoIP settings for the audio driver specify "one person conference call" (or something like that; writing from my T60 now).
Otherwise the driver will try to compensate for multiple people being in the room and the result isn't particularly pretty

On my X220T again: you need to open "Lenovo - Web Conferencing" app, go to "VoIP Call Settings", then click "Advanced audio settings", click on VoIP icon and choose "Private Chat".
Hope this helps.

Thanks Daniel, but this does not help me, at least not in Linux (i have fedora 15), will check on Windows 7 later on.
Are you trying to say that x220t hardware is optimized for windows ?

I also had huge problem with the mic quality with my x201 tablet. But I turned off all the "special" settings for the mic (noise cancellation etc.) and then the mic worked perfectly.
Someone has done a horrible job when programing the software for the mic.

Would be a good idea to make sure you are using the updated driver as well found here:
OP, I know you are running Linux on your x220 so you will likely have fewer options for drivers. These ship with Windows for a reason whether we intend to use it or not.
For the best experience, you will likely need to run Windows 7. Not hating on Linux, but driver issues are one of the cons of using it.
