Any others with Case/Complaint numbers they can post on here to continue to build the case?
Lenovo for me still havent provided detail on what if anything has changed to the faulty anti-glare film, but have tried to suggest the "revised" keyboard is part of the fix (doesnt address the root cause though).
But two questions still remain unanswered.
If you can’t provide an answer to question 1. then at least an answer to question 2. is required as this goes to the root cause of the issue. Without the above information a full refund is required and I will go an purchase a product that does not have a faulty screen from the factory.

Also. Who if anyone has been issued with the enchanced/revised keyboard? Can photos be posted (including part/serial numbers), not that this is the issue of course and ammusing that Lenovo engineers waste time trying to fix something that is just a bandaid and not satisfactory.

Well .. out of my own experience I can definitely tell you the keyboard hasn't got anything to do with it .. I even get coating peeling off in areas where I do increased fingertapping .. (Asphalt 9 is a great example where there are two areas in the screen where the touch controls are ...) ... What I do believe is that the keyboard causes the same type damage .. But is not the root cause .. Root cause for me still remains flawed coating ..

Welp, after exchanging my x1 tablet for a new x1 tablet one month ago, today I discovered several scratches in the upper corner on the opposite side where the fingerprinter is, almost the exact same location where my previous x1 tablet's scratches were located. I called technical support in Atlanta, Georgia, and the woman said she hadn't heard of this problem with the x1 tablets before. Sigh, so frustrating!

I got the tablet from the service. They changed my screen for free. The service have confirmed that lenovo knows about this problem and they also issued the keypad and display with special code that resolve the problem. My tablet was produced at the end of December but only the keyboard had the new code (in which theoretically solved the problem) but the screen was the old model that scratch very easy. To be sure for the future, I put the screen protector (brotech air glass - fit very good). Now the tablet is ok.

The service told me that if they have a problem with the screen scratches ,they must order new led screen with special code that resolve the problem. Also the tablet must have the new keyboard

I had my screen replaced under warranty about 5 weeks ago because the coating started to pick off after only a few weeks of light use. After the same light use (find hidden objects with the stylus and navigate with my finger in G5 games), my screen is full of fine scratches.
It's clear to me that Lenovo still has a problem that has not been solved. I plan on having the screen replaced again with, hopefully, an improved screen. Is that even possible?

I wanted to throw my voice in. I bought my device in November and has the same issue as has been described many time within a month. I had it sent in for repair, they replaced the screen, and sent it back. I didn't use it for a while due to a trip, but started using it again in mid January. Again the flaking began and I noticed it yesterday. I contacted them today and they at first were just going to do the exact same replacement screen. I told them this is obviosuly a larger issue and they spent some time searching and came back with also replacing the keyboard. I'm sure this will help with the scuffs coming from the keyboard but the scuffs seems to come from other sources too... I have a feeling the scratching will occur, just not as quickly. I wish I had bought the 2in1...
