Bad picture with flash and small fonts on Apps

Date:July 16, 2014
"I love this machine with only a few exceptions. The biggest disappointment is the camera when using the flash. It is a great camera. But when you use the flash the picture is washed out. I have tried changing the settings but it doesn't help much. One more complaint, font sizes. You have to set them for the many different areas and you cannot change the font size for the apps tiles. 3 stars on value is because for the money it should have 4GB ram instead of 2. To its credit it is still faster than my wife’s Surface RT but paid half the price. Had it for about 5 months and it crashed once. Had to hard reboot. Thats all the complaints. The reason I chose to buy the ThinkPad 8 over the other 8” tablets is because it has the full version of Windows not RT, 8mp camera with flash, 64gb hard drive, micro SD slot up to 64gb, faster CPU, slightly larger screen 8.3”, metal frame, and high quality screen. The battery has been adequate for me. I am not a heavy user (an hour or two at a time)."

only 2 gb of ram

"This is a great tablet. It can play full hd video, and with additional bluetooth keyboard and mouse it can be used as a desktop.
Good things:
USB3
1920x1200
micro hdmi
fast enough for most work
works quite ok in metro interface, or whatever is the new official name
bad things:
only 2Gb of ram
no stylus
no usb cable for attaching usb hub :( (one port is not enough)

Perfect choice

Date:May 16, 2014
"I will preface by saying I love Lenovo products typically and lost a little bit of faith in the Thinkpad 8 because it took forever to ship. But once I got it, I was amazed by its offerings. The screen absolutely blows you away and it has the perfect size with exceptional power. 5 stars!"

Really Like It

Date:May 12, 2014
"Finally a device that Windows 8.1 is made for. There is very little that that I don't like about this device. The price is on the high end and think but offset against a well built product. I did have to return mine when I received it because of an audio issue, but apart from that, its been great. I love the cover. When you close it, it goes into standby super quick and retains the battery. I really like how productive I can be with it too with all the multi tasking with Windows 8.1"

lacks wacom digitizer

Date:April 12, 2014
"greate specs, but without wacom digitizer you can not have productivity with this tablet, you can not work with office efficiently, only surfing internet and watching youtube the same as android and ipad tablets. hope lenovo adds wacom to a version of this tablet soon, and then this tablet becomes a keeper"

Problems

Date:April 6, 2014
"I am going to return this tablet because the screen seems to auto adjust even through I've turned it off... pages seem to stay dim longer when you go from a dark page to a bright page. Even on a light page the screen stays dark a long time like the auto brightness is on. Might be a problem with my unit, but after wasting a month to get because of backorder I'm not going to give them another go.... good look to all"

Widespread problem with its speakers

Date:April 4, 2014
"Its speakers do not works anyway.
I really do not know what happened with TP8 speakers. There are already quite a lot of such cases. At first, I believed that it's a part problem, but some guys got same failures in the speakers even they replaced new speakers for their TP8s. Now, I am still waitting for my replacement, and its shipped date is shown as June 6. Oh, I can not say any words.
