YOGA 710 Quality Issues

2016-07-31, 8:14 AM

What happened Lenovo? Your T series are tough and reliable but Yoga? The specs-wise - it's great! But I think this has been greatly diminished by the quality of the build. Quality is really bad.

 

I got mine from BestBuy, first unit, touch screen is defective, second and third has dead pixels, fourth has misaligned hinge, same as the last. I just settled with it since I HAVE OPENED ALL THE UNITS IN STOCK IN BESTBUY. So yes, thank you #BestBuy, but - COME ON Lenovo!

Hate to see this. Just grabbed the Yoga 710 i7 with 16G RAM....like it a lot but the screen colors seem washed out. Having a hard time adjusting at home. After seeing this, I am wondering if it isn't just a fluke.
Lenovo seems to post a lot on the BB reviews site, which is kind of odd.

Your model should have the same screen as the ones in these reviews, which describe the display in positive terms (e.g., vivid):

This review is less kind about the screen in the 700 series, :

Thank you very much. I have read many reviews and do agree that it is a very beautiful laptop. But I am really struggling with color accuracy. It is vivid, blacks are good etc but other colors are not accurate and the brightness/contrast issues are what will probably make me return it as I do not seem to be able to tweak it to address the problems as my eyes see them. The sound, the build, the speed and design are all amazing. It really breaks my heart to have to return it as it has the best collection of features I have seen out there in totality for what I was looking for. I mean i7 and SSD and 16 gigs of RAM is crazy ;=)

Good to see you know your needs. My main laptop use is for business, so I basically want a compact desktop I can take with me to meetings. :) On my Yoga 510, the i5, SSD and RAM (I have no need for more than 8GB) are major helps. It’s usually hooked up to an external monitor, so the laptop screen quality is quite secondary. I never liked using the laptop screen, since they are so small and the keyboard is hardly ergonomic and far too close to the screen. Tablets are different and there the screen quality is critical.

I think I may have resolved the duller color issue by using the Lenovo settings and enabling the adaptive brightness and dynamic brightness control. So far so good ;=)

It is in the windows app store. Not sure if it was pre installed or I added it.
