I was interested in buying this module as well - due to the hdmi in/out

Is there no more info or any further clarification by the mods as to what happened in this case?

No kidding - I finally got my presenter module!

Nice little device for presentations, but nothing too special.

(I'm not sure if I'd watch a whole movie with it...the resolution is not really very good.) 

 

@Aioros00: The productivity module also has an hdmi-input and is much cheaper...

I DO own a productivity module (much good it did to me, as I am sending the machine back to Lenovo) however it is only for output only - as detailed on Lenovo's website

 

The presenter's module actually has BOTH in and out. 

 

Question - have you noticed any impact on the battery? does it heat up since its a fanless projector? How is the brightness level on it? Any way to sharpen the resolution? Do you recommend it as a buy?

I didn't notice that it's only an hdmi-output in the productivity module - though it makes sense:)

Thanks for the information!

 

I didn't use the presenter module that much, so I havn't noticed any battery draining or heating of the module.

The only heating I'm noticing so far is the tablet itself - the back gets really hot! Today I measured 85 degrees (Celsius) while working with it.

When I'll have used the module for a longer period, I'll write you back about the heat / battery!

 

The brightness is okay - it's not great, but okay. You can't really use it in a very bright room!

You can sharpen the resolution, but the inner zone of the picture always seems  to be a bit differnet from the outer zone.

 

So far, I'm not sure if I'd recommend to buy the presenter module. It's a really nice gadget. It's obviously useful for presenting spontaniously or maybe for whatching an old movie / an older series that is not depending on hd graphics. But: It does not replace a real projector. And looking at it's relatively weak brightness levels and its small resolution it is not a really impressive gadget.

 

Don't get me wrong - I like it, I'll keep it. I think the price is much too high (thankfully, I got it much cheaper, because of the education program of Lenovo). So, if you like gadgets and don't care that much about the high price, you should try it. Don't buy it if you want a real projector.

Anfi,

 

I am glad to hear you received the Presenter module for your X1 Tablet.

 

A BIOS update was released to address the hot temperature of the tablet.

<1.55>

 UEFI: 1.55 / ECP: 1.12

- [Important] Applied Cool Mode "ON" to use ThinkPad X1 Tablet with lower skin

        temperature.

        (Note)

        If performance is more preferable to lower skin temperature, the Cool Mode has to be "OFF".

To turn off Cool Mode,

  1. Enter ThinkPad Tablet Setup.
  2. Select Config icon.
  3. Select Power. Then Cool Mode Setting will be displayed.

 

The most recent BIOS for the X1 Tablet can be downloaded here:  http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS112372

 

Lenovo has also released a FAQ of features and specifications for the X1 Tablet Presenter module. It can be found here:  https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/SF16-T0073

 

Thank you,

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

That was the BIOS update that broke the productivity module. The day I installed the new BIOS, the module stopped working.
