Summary: The power button is notorious for breaking off the mother board with normal wear and tear. It costs around $80 for the replacement board and I couldn't find a shop that would mess with just reconnecting the internal button due to its miniscule size. This issue happened twice the first time it was under warranty and Lenovo was great fixing it for me. The second time it wasn't and now I am stuck debating whether to pay to get it fixed or put that money towards a new one.
Summary: This unit had lots of promise until it started to fall apart, literally. It works fine and has lots of great features, most notably the keyboard folio and pen. Over time I noticed it was getting more difficult to turn the unit on/off or to sleep as the power button was not responding. Finally it stopped working totally. Got on the Lenovo forum and found many other owners having the same issue. The power switch falls off the main board.
Summary: I owned this tablet for less than a year and I already had to send it for repairs twice and it needs to be repaired again. Although it's still under warranty, I probably won't bother with it -- it looks like the problems are caused by poor design and I'm not interested in wasting any more of my time on this tablet. The problems I encountered with this tablet: - The on/off switch stopped working within 3-4 months of ownership. The tablet had to be sent for repairs.
Summary: After many weeks of research, I decided to take the plunge and try out the Thinkpad Tablet. I was always a fan of IBM-Lenovo thinkpad line, but this time they didn't quite hit the mark. It's definitely business oriented which I like, but couple days of playing around I found it to be glitchy and slow. Apps crashed from time to time. I expected it to be a little on the heavy side so that wasn't a shock.
Summary: I'll start by saying I read all of the positive reviews on this tablet before I purchased it and was left very excited. I love the idea of the stylus built in for business use, and I am a big fan of Android. I've now had the TPT for a few months now, and I've already gotten to the point to get rid of it. Before I get into why, I will start out with what is good with this tablet. 1. It is very sturdy and solid 2. Android 3.
Summary: Great when they work. Please keep in mind to order a spare unit and also backup all your data. 2 failed - first would no longer turn on, second would not hold a charge. When you send it to Lenovo for repair, you will receive it back fixed, but back to factory. Sad to say we lost all our data. We still like them a lot, just wish quality was better.
Summary: Tablet works great, unfortunately one day the power button got stuck. Had to send it back to Lenovo to be repaired. It's been 2 weeks and we still do not have the unit back. Crazy how it's a business tablet, but the RMA service is so slow. We bought 3 for our office, the other 2 work great. So would have given it 5 stars if we did not have such slow service.
