one year with x220 tablet

after one year i have spend with this machine i must say i am very disapointed.

from lenovo, from this specific model and maybe from microsoft too.

 

i shell begin with the major problems - the hdd crashed not so long ago and there was no chance to save any of the information. how come? usually hdd is not totally crashing and unrecoverable. but this one which was only one year old died, so brutally , with all of my information.

i am a system admin so i guess i can handle a computer and know how to treat it right.


now here is something even more important to know - the hdd is a sepcial one it is not iin the usual size so forget about solid steal - there is not enough space for it.

if you'd like to upgrade it in the future the only place to get one that feets is in lenovo.

 

second thing - white marks on screen - lenovo state it is my fault. no way!

 

third thing- the Inaccuracy of the pen  - you probably already know it.

by the way - in ubuntu it  works pefect!

 

fourth thing - the small rubbers that holds the screen strate while it is in tablet mode - they are gone.

 

and now - special new one - bluetooth is gone. where why? i don't know it has disappear.

 

a good friend told me once don't buy all in one devices it is always has problems - so if you want to buy a laptop and a tablet, just buy a laptop and a tablet , no integrations.

Why didn't you just buy a Fujitsu tablet PC? My Fujitsu T5010 was a nice all in one device...

The X220t/X230t is a disappointment.

Re: one year with x220 tablet

For a systems adminstrator you seem pretty...uninformed. 

7mm high hard drives and SSDs fit the X220/x230. Seagate and Hitachi both make 7mm height HDDs. 

Tons of SSD manufacturers make 7mm high SSDs. The Samsung 470/830 series, the Intel 520 series, the Crucial M4 series, etc.

Re: one year with x220 tablet

I've had my tablet over a year and its been great. I lost the rubber things too though.

 

But, ive never had the hdd crash. Although, mine is a SSD. 

 

You just have to be more careful and take more precautions imo.

Thank you for all of the replays.

 

It still doesn't solve the Bluetooth problem which used to work and now its just gone.

Re: one year with x220 tablet

Hello dothque,

 

Is the Bluetooth enabled?  Press Fn+F5 and try it out.

Do you see the Bluetooth in device manager?

Have you updated your drivers?

Is the WLAN working on your computer?

 

Hope this helps,

 

Alex

Re: one year with x tablet

Hi Alex.

 

I used to turn on the Bluetooth with fn+F5 , but now it just doesn't appears over there.

I cannot see the Bluetooth in the device manager, in the bios it is enabled.

I tried to download the drivers for the Bluetooth and it says - "you have no Bluetooth".

I do , I  used to work with it and I still need to.

 

The WLAN is working.

I am updating my computer quite often. I remember that one of the latest updates by lenovo was a bios flash.

So perhaps something is screwed up over there.

Does anyone else did the latest bios updates so I can see if they are having the same problem?

Re: one year with x tablet

When did the Bluetooth disappear?

What happened, or what changes were made to the computer shortly before this time?

Were any other updates made right before this happened?

Well I cannot say when exactly it disappear.

I am backing up my cell phone from time to time.

I remember that not so long ago I did a bios firmware upgrade and that might be the only time where the BT went lost.

Well lets downgrade your BIOS.  This won't take long at all.

This is the version of BIOS you had installed before the update.

Version 1.31-1.20
UEFI: 1.31 / ECP: 1.20

 

Click this link and scroll toward the bottom of the page.

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS018805

 

It should be the first clickable .EXE file on the chart toward the bottom of the web page.

 

Save this file to your desktop or somewhere you can find it easily.

Once downloaded open the file and follow the instructions.

It should ask if you are sure that you want to downgrade your BIOS.  Say yes. Smiley Wink

Once done check the Bluetooth and let me know what happened.

 

I hope this helps,

 

Alex
