Lenovo 3000 G230 has a cheap webcam compared to the Lenovo 3000 G430

2009-05-23, 6:49 AM



I have both a Lenovo 3000 G430 and a Lenovo 3000 G230.... while the lenovo G230 is more expensive than the G430, i was shocked that the g230 uses a 1.3MP "Bison electronics" webcam while the g430 uses the 0.3 MP "silicon electronics" webcam which performs much way better than the bison electronics...


the silicon electronics performs very well on low light conditions while the bison electronics webcam has a dark image output... when i tested this two webcam i placed them (the two laptop) side by side so the light condition is the same and its clear that the bison electronics is knocked out by silicon electronics when it comes to image clarity..


i already have the lenovo service center to replace my g230 webcam with a new one but still it cant out perform the clarity of the g430's webcam 


g230 = model # 20006; MO number: R3N038B05091; (1S)59016396

g430 = model # 20008; MO number: R3NY39214981; (1S)59018029


to lenovo... why did you do this???


and another thing, the lenovo g230 has a clear plastic cover for the webcam lense which is prone to scratches! this cover should be made of a scratch proof plastic...


I only use a IBM/lenovo mobile computer because of its great built (especially the keyboard), software and hardware design,but now i cant immagine how this has happend,

I want a recall order for the g230 for the problems i have observed and stated aboved to be fixed immediately...
