    How many of you guys who have the X230t have put a screen protector on it and which brand/kind did you go for and why? I am not anticipating glare to be a huge problem for me since I primarily plan to use the machine indoors. MY main concern is the touch sensitivity. Zero compromise if possible. In JesseBAnderson's video he mentions that the anti-glare screen protector he uses does compromise touch sensitivty a bit.

    Would love to hear from X200t, X201t and X220t owners too. Thanks.

    @miliranga,

    I put a clear/glossy screen protector on mine today. See my other post.
    Basically, I think it is a must, and you can get Exim two pack for $16. Works well with touch and pen. Might want to consider the 13.1" though since the glass is edge to edge. The 13.1" ones are $3.50 a piece, but unknown brand. I didn't notice any degradation on touch sensitivity, but I didn't try too much without the screen protector, so I guess you gotta try it yourself. Pen writes super fluidly now.


    Probably never.. because people like you and me are still buying it. The only people notices the defects are probably the ones on these forums, which is probably not that much.

    I went with a Photodon at first. I made some comments on JBA's site and pretty much agreed with him. The is a bit of glare at some angles. The logo really annoyed me. I did email them suggesting they consider making it optional. Anyway, I then got the Exim anti-glare. Differences between them I would say:

    - Exim is more matte than the Photodon
    - Exim has a little more sparkle to it (probably because it is more matte)
    - Photodon felt a little more clear
    - Photodon feels a bit thicker (I didn't look up the specs)
    - 2 in a pack for Exim and 1 in a pack for Photodon
    - Photodon has a logo in the centre and Exim is completely clean
    - Touch sensitivity feels slightly better on the Exim
    - Both work fine with the stylus

    Hope that helps.

    Hi,
    What is your power consumption with your x230t while internet browsing?
    I´'ve set up the Energy manager to "highest battery" (sorry...i don't know the exact term of it), brightness 10/15, WLAN on and the x230t use abou 8-15Watts?! I think it a very big range, isn't it?

    Do you really mean soundcard or do you mean built-in speakers. the built in speakers are subpar. Plug in some external speakers and the sound is acceptable

    With the 3320, an Intel G2, and brightness at 1, I was able to get around 5.5W. If you've got a conventional HDD and brightness 10, then an 8W minimum seems normal.

    You tried feeding the sound to your audio amplifier?

    Wow, how is that even possible? I clean installed mine, i5-3320m, multitouch screen, 8GB DDR3L, intel 6205 wifi, intel x25-m 80GB ssd, webcam, no fingerprint reader, brightness at 0, power plan in Power saver mode, and letting it sit idle for at least 10 minutes, I still see 7W in PowerManager, and 8W at the plug using Kill-a-watt.
    Do you have a different configuration? Less ram or non-touch screen, or single band wifi card?
