Better pen for lenovo c940

2019-12-07, 17:10 PM

So the included stylus is fine for quick stuff but honestly I find it a little small to use for a long time - anyone recommend a bigger pen that would work well with the c940?

Lenovo active pen 1 or 2 both work, I can confirm.

Wacom also makes a bamboo ink stylus, which does both Wacom AES and N-trig, but most reviews noted it has more jitter than most OEM pens.

 

C940 is using Wacom AES, so any pen compatible with AES 'should' work. Some of the forum posts in tabletPCreview note weird compatibility between different versions of AES, but both of Lenovo's own active pens definately work. It's hard to find those outside of Lenovo's website though. If you have a Best Buy nearby, you can try out the bamboo, which is often on display with all the digitizer enabled laptops they showcase.

Make sure to switch the pen to AES by holding the two side buttons if it's set to N-trig at the moment.

The lenovo normal active pen's don't support tilt. The wacom bamboo ink pro supports tilt. Got one at best buy recently, tilt works, but can confirm they also have worse diagonal line jitter as per most of the reviews out there.

Lenovo also seems to sell a pen pro, which has tilt support. It runs on AES 2.0 too, so it may be a better option. Can't comment if it's the AES 2 or wacom's own implementation of the pen which caused the extra jitter.

Yes i saw the lenovo active pen 2 actually dont support tilt, which surprised me as this is a quite new pen. I couldnt find wacom bamboo ink pro on bestbuy, though only other models. The lenovo pen pro is quite new as far as i can tell, and i cant get it here in Europe unfortunately, but that looks interesting since its their own pen which i assume has less jitter, but now also supports tilt. I may be going for a DELL active pen... I would prefer tilt and at least less jitter that the wacom bamboo ink plus which is close to ununueable due to severe jitter on diagonal lines if not drawn very fast

 

I couldnt find anything in this; but i wonder if Lenovo C940 has the MPP (microsoft pen protocol ) ? Any idea ?

 

thanks

Nolan

The c940 uses wacom aes. I don't believe there are any devices that use dual protocol digitizers. Each type of digitizer basically has its own sensor layer imbedded in the screen and a control board for it.
