I was thinking about switching from my T430 to T440 (to benefit from the IPS panel) but if this problem still exists... I will look from something else, not Lenovo. OK, this is the result of considering profit only instead of manufacturing a useful product.

Good Decision! Stay with your T430... The IPS-Panel is the only good thing. Sure there will be IPS Panels at Dell or HP Books soon. Lenovo has to learn it on the hard way. My Boss sent 30 T440p back because of the noise. We are working with the T400 now again... Now it is my problem to find something new for our company (2000 people). I think the EZ6430 would be the best way

That's nuts! How many T440p units did you order altogether? How can Lenovo not be seriously thinking of a recall!? I mean if they got 30 units back from one customer you would think Lenovo have enough units to see if this is a design or manufacture flaw ..... so what's the word Lenovo!?

 

We are working with the T400 now again

 

I still have my T400 going strong. Compared to it's successors it's a beauty! :smileywink:

Hi! Yes i am the Responsible for the IT Hardware. We ordered 30 Units at all for a very small departement of our company (Hardware Eng. / Sales). And i can tell you... The Engineers are not amused about the quality. Now i will order E6430. I think we will never order ThinkPads until they get in mind who are the main users. They are only thinking of little girls with their ThinkPad on the sofa... One of the Engineer told me: "It looks like Consumerscrap, it feels like Consumerscrap... It sounds like Consumerscrap... Why do you order ThinkPad Edge ???"... And he was not the only one who thougt it is an Edge Series Book...

We ordered 30 Units ...

 

Sorry, but let me be sure I am understanding you absolutely clear.

Are you saying that you ordered a total of 30 T440p machines and that every single one of them had the fan noise issue? Was each machine powered on and found to have the issue, or did you try a few which you found to have the fan noise issue and then sent all 30 machines back to Lenovo?

 

Just out of curiosity, did you buy these machines from Lenovo directly or from a reseller?

 

And when you returned them I am supposing you told whoever you bought them from why you were returning them - what was the response?

exact (6 of 15 with noise)

We buy from a reseller

 

And when you returned them I am supposing you told whoever you bought them from why you were returning them - what was the response?

 

the response was: problem is known and lenovo is working on it. The noise wasnt the only reason for sending them back. The employes were not satisfied with the quality in general. The Keyboard and the "not-existing"-Trackpoint-pushbuttons were big topics for them. Another Problem are the not existing "dedicated" control buttons. Next point on the long list: Where is the Menu button? All in All: The T440p has to many differences to the T400 which they used before. So there is no reason for them to use a ThinkPad,because today it is like everey other Notebook. In my opinion Lenovo trys to get on the Consumermarket.

My company ordered one for me a week before christmas. It has no been delivered by now. I'm in Germany. I hope the reason is that they halted deliveries to solve the various issues.

 

Online shops have signaled availability for around 30th this month. Yesterday it changed to 2-4 days. It seems they resumed shippings.I would really appreciate some statement from Lenovo. I don't want to receive something that I have to send back immediately.

My newly bought T440s have also got the fan noise. It sounds like the fan blade is scratching with something, but if you listen carefully, you can find this is more likely the problem of the bearing rather than the blade. Hope there could be a solution to this because this is rather bothering...
