How many months has it been? I have really bad experience with all three of my ThinkPads. I like the design and style but it doesn't really live up to the reputation anymore.

At least they could give us an info, if they or intel are trying to fix it...

The bright display was not just a small point on the list to buy this laptop.

 

Does anyone know if it makes sense to ask or even insist for an exchange to gen 3.  They are not effecetd, are they?

They will not fix this for the Gen2, don't hold your breath.


Gen3 isn't affected.

 

I am already on transition to another computing platform.

call up support and lodge a fault with the laptop, dont stop until you get a full refund then buy a gen3 or go elsewhere, have a gen3 at the moment and have had a gen2 with the display issue -- night and day difference

It s needed a trusty confirmation that X1E gen 3 is not affected by this issue, before. Can someone here provide an evidence?

If it helps, this problem isn’t hardware related. It’s software. 

For the first six months, the notebooks worked fine. Then, a driver update broke the brightness and Lenovo hasn’t been able to resolve it 

Si, this and other Software related problems should be enough to NOT buy a Lenovo machine again.

For the last 15 years I have loyally bought NOTHING but Lenovo computers (9 laptops and 2 desktops), and wouldn't even CONSIDER another brand. However, Lenovo's unwillingness to fix, acknowledge or apologize for this simple problem that's not giving me the screen brightness for which I paid >$2000 means I will NEVER again buy a Lenovo product. If anyone out there from Lenovo is reading this, think about that!

Ya, it s a driver issue, so software related.

 

The only workaround seems to be .7529 while setting GPE to block windows update for future display driver roll out.

 

Is 7529 working effectively for you?

I have had a gen2 and now have a gen3 -- running the latest display drivers and have access to full 600nits of brightness, no issues at all and screen looks gorgeous, as the gen2 does with old display drivers -- while doing the swap over i had the gen2 and gen3 side by side, the gen2 was duller on maximum brightness than my external displays and a far far shadow sitting next to the gen3 which out classed every monitor i put it next to at work for maximum brightness

 

The Gen3 doesnt seem to have issues with adaptive brightness based on what's currently on screen either (not ambient light like some laptops, im talking about intels older drivers forcing adaptive brightness even if turned off in intel command centre) -- aka if youre using photoshop even on maximum brightness the display would dull if using dark interface mode with a dark image and brighten up on light images -- making it impossible to use the **bleep** thing for accurate work as youd see it constantly changing brightness values and be unable to increase or decrease / reset the brightness

 

Overall the Gen3 is what the Gen2 started out as and should have been to this day.

 

Just hope lenovo dont #@$#@ the gen3 up with crappy software and drivers like they did with the gen2 and then go silent on the matter....
