    Hi everyone

    I have just gotten my x201 tablet, and have 2 questions.

    1. The screen has one dead pixel, is that common for x201t?

    2. I found neither the pen nor the touch screen is accurate. And because you can not see the cursor before you touch the screen, it's hard to catch a button or a menu item by touching. I need to try several times to get it even after calibration. Is it common for you?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Pixel failures are not common for any modern display.

    I'm using a borrowed x201t and find the pen is very accurate after calibration. Fingering small targets though will take some practice. I found that I need to aim a little bit high to hit the mark and sometimes have to poke a few times before I succeed.

    Dead pixels are not at all common on modern displays. However my x201t I just got last week has 5 dead pixels on the screen which irked me a good bit. Luckily the screen is going to be replaced by lenovo as per their dead pixel policy. (3 or more = defective screen)

    As for the pen and touch deal I too find them both to be frustrating at times. No matter how many times I calibrate the screen for pen or touch it just doesn't really help. I suspect I'm doing it wrong but I can't find any guide to calibrating the display so I guess I gotta live with it.

    Hello,
    i just want to share my experience:)

    I got my x201t mid-december and first time i power it up i saw one bright pixel(same as black dead pixel but it's very bright and don't change color).
    i checked the screen carefully and found 2 "bad pixel" (giving bad colors: black on red screen for instance) and several pixels brighter than the others.
    only the bright pixel was annoying but i contacted lenovo then the seller.
    The seller took it back and replaced the screen (lenovo was also ok to replace the screen within warranty but i had already send the unit back to the seller).

    i now have a screen without deadpixel :)

    about calibration, i found the latest wacom driver giving good calibration but i couldn't have pressure under paint tool sai with them, so i reinstall older one (5.1.1) which are not very good :/

    The probleme with dead pixel is that it's mental after. If you think about it then you will notice it all day long.
    I am glad I don't have any one.
    What is not common is that it's not in the Lenovo warranty at this price level.
    Dell or Eizo for exemple change your screen if you have a single dead pixel
