1 out of 5 eggs Worst Refurbish Job (More like re-packed and shipped to re-sellers) 12/29/2013

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx K3011 Intel Atom Z2760 11.6" 2GB 64GB SSD Tablet - Windows 8 - Gray - 59RF0098 1 YEAR WARRANTY

Pros:

That USB cable that you can use to hook other devices to it if you don't want to get Bluetooth.

Cons:

Lots! ohh! Where to begin?

1-Screen is so reflective, watching movies when you're in a bright room is almost unwatchable.

2-Screen had about a half-inch long trail of bright (dead) pixels, which disappear during dark webpages or watching movies. But on the desktop on the wallpaper? Horrible, just horrible.
I opened this tablet (starting from the bottom, don't start from the top) and noticed that the area where the bad pixels are, someone fiddle with that and left their finger prints, trying to fix that issue perhaps? But anyhow, Lenovo should have fixed that instead of just re-packing it and sending it to re-sellers.

I filed for an RMA but since newegg doesn't have this in stock and I already promised my buddy for one of these things as a gift and on top of that I have a case for this, I would end up wasting $38 ($18 for shipping it back and $20 for the case I already have for this).


3-The wireless speed is bad, I have 50/35 and this thing barely reaches 12Mb/s. I have this about 8 feet away from the wireless N router and still, can't get a decent speed, my $100 Virgin Mobile phone gets 30Mb/s speed.

4-Feel sorry for those that paid full price for this, the built quality and parts, makes this $249 refurbish price $50 more than what it should really cost. Refurb price should be $99.

This lags sometimes, the touch screen is not as responsive as it should be, sometimes to shrink a window, pressing your finger down and dragging it won't work, it takes a few tries before it does.

5-8 hours battery life? Even during sleep mode is using more power than it should in my opinion. I've used this to watch movies with FLV player and I think the most battery power I would see is around 4-5 hours, pretty decent but I rather use my full size 14" Acer TimelineX , as I get the same amount of video playing and the screen is not so reflective.

6-I have to come back to the quality of the parts, as I decided not to go through with the RMA, when I opened this (using my finger nail to pry it open) tablet, pretty much everything is integrated but my Samsung Galaxy Tab was built so much better, except I can't deal with Android (no full flesh flash player with Android).
The picture quality was decent (for the web) but I can't figure out why the screen dims out and stays that way despite the fact that I have the brightness turned all the way up.

7-Can't no longer get the dock-keyboard for this thing.

Overall, I'm very disappointed that I bought this, the price point and full windows 8 made it look so appealing but that ASUS makes a table ($299 brand new with a full keyboard/mouse) that's probably a better choice, except it's a 10.1 inch table and yes 11.6 is better.
I'm done with Lenovo, aren't they part of IBM? This is the first and the last Lenovo product I'll ever buy, for the price and quality of the parts, they're right up there with HP, although I'm sure my friend is going to love this thing regardless of the bad pixels.
