    Great for light use

    Posted .

    I have a higher-end laptop for work and use a desktop for browsing and video streaming. This does the job. I found it a little slow at first - it lags if I open too many tabs in the browser. I bought a small SSD and that helped speed it up. Unfortunately, you can't add a third SATA device to this, so to add the SSD, you have to disconnect either the included hard drive or the DVD. I disconnected the DVD drive, since I rarely use DVDs. Fortunately, it's very easy to open the case and access components.I'd also like to add some RAM to this. It can be done, but it only has one slot, so you can't just buy 4GB to get 8. You have to buy one stick of 8GB and remove the original 4GB. Also, it uses laptop RAM, which is more expensive than desktop. So it will cost you $60-$70 to get this to 8GB. However, even adding that and the price of the SSD to the original cost of the computer, this is a good deal. I love the small form factor, the fact that it has WiFI, and the number of USB 3.0 ports, especially the two on the front panel. I just wish it were more flexible for expanding/upgrading.

    Small profile but capable

    Out of the box, this desktop is capable to run most light office programs. It boots fast and runs fine. I'd strongly recommend clean install win10 with the option "Keep nothing" to delete everything from the HDD. Drivers install perfectly good from Microsoft. It works really good running office (I use LiberOffice), browsing web and running some cloud applications. To boost the power of this desktop, I went ahead and ordered an SSD (128Gb), installed it in (very easy by the way) and re-installed win10 and just everything again on it (I don't believe in disks cloning)... Now it runs really fast like at least 3x faster than regular HDD. I got it as open box special! It cover the need and even more. The graphic is just good, Bluetooth and WiFi work with no issues... Internet access is very fast! It has enough USB connections for every day usage. Small package almost 0 noise tower can be installed on or under the desk... Sound quality is ok! No complain really... It is kind of outdated, I know! but it really fills the need!

    Good Desktop PC for general everyday use.

    I bought this for a friend (Xmas present) so that she can do her online banking, email and youtube videos. She's not a gamer so she didn't need a high-end gaming PC, just something for basic everyday use. Setup was easy, and Windows 10 is simple enough for her to use. As a good basic Desktop PC she is quite happy with the overall performance. Has enough memory to handle her tasks pretty smoothly and the 500gb hard drive is plenty of space for her (she just keeps some pictures and documents on the hard drive and doesn't really save larger files like video files and she doesn't play games anyway on this).

    A Bit Disappointed

    |
    Posted .

    I've had this computer for about a month now. I've always had HP computers, but after several years, mine decided to die, so it was time to buy a new one. I decided to give Lenovo a chance. This seemed to have what I was looking for except I was not happy about windows 10, but then again that's pretty standard in new computers. After reading all the reviews, I decided to buy this one. A bit disappointed in how slow it seems to be. No matter what web browser I use, I have problems with the pages freezing. All my updates are up to date and currant. One of the biggest reasons I decided to get this one over others was because it said that it was good for multitasking and windows 10 would effortlessly support of my programs. This is what seems to slow it down. So I'm disappointed in that. Set up was quick and easy, and although I do have wifi at home, I decided to use it with an ethernet card, which made it a bit faster then with wifi. I was also surprised at how flimsy the dvd drive is, although it works good, it just doesn't seem very sturdy. I'm not sue if I would recommend this computer or not. I guess it all depends on your situation and needs. I would definitely have given it 5 stars if it was this slow.

      This system should provide good speed with its Intel Pentium processor and 4GB of RAM. Be sure any software you installed is compatible with Windows 10. There is no need to install Microsoft Office software. The software is already part of the operating system, you just need to activate the software with a purchased product key. If you have installed a copy of Microsoft Office, this is conflicting with the existing copy on the system and this will slow your system down. If you have installed a 3rd party anti-virus program, be sure that Windows Defender is turned off and that the trial version of McAfee Anti-Virus software is uninstalled. There can only be one anti-virus program on the system. You may need to restore your system to original factory default settings if any of the programing errors have occurred. You can do that by typing "restore" in the Cortana search window. Just click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom left of your Windows 10 Desktop. Click on "Reset This PC" Then click on "Get Started" and follow the on screen directions to restore to factory defaults. lenovo

    Good desktop that's GREAT with an SSD upgrade

    |
    Posted .

    If you get one of these and get an SSD to replace the hard drive it comes with, you will NOT be disappointed. These machines look good and behave very well. You'll probably want to do a clean Windows 10 install when you get them because Lenovo is notorious for pre-installing tons of Lenovo-branded garbage that you won't want, and if you're going to nuke the install, why not get an SSD to put the fresh install on? The cases are pretty easy to open up; the hard part is mounting an SSD, but I have just put them in with a single screw tightened pretty hard and they don't loosen up or move around. Everyone who has touched them has been happy with them.

      This Lenovo IdeaCentre 310s desktop ships with just two adware programs, a 30-day trial of Microsoft Office 365 (as part of Windows 10 operating system) and a 30-day trial of McAfee virus protection. Lenovo computers ship with one of the cleanest factory software installs available in the retail computer market. Lenovo

    Got this as open box for a great price. Works very good for general computing. I love that is has built in WiFi and connects flawlessly to my network at home. Standard HDD with the 4GB RAM can be sluggish at time, and I think it will perform much better with 8GB RAM and an SSD. Meets my intended purpose as a shared family computer where anyone can jump on and surf, print, or work on a document. Has a DVD and multi card reader to boot. After getting rid of my previous family desktop 2 years ago, I am very glad I made the purchastop, as now there is always a computer in the house that is always on, without having to worry about charging the battery or digging for a charging cable.

    My old desktop died and I had decided I didn't really need one anymore. A while after that I saw this one on sale and I had been missing a desktop system so I decided to give it a try. This is not a fast computer so for someone who needs fast this is not a system for you. For my needs of web browsing, email, Netflix, YouTube etc. it is perfect. It registers download speed of 300 MB with the Ethernet connecter and my Comcast internet via speedtest.net. I even bought the Lenovo 3 year support plan I was so impressed.

    Purchased this for my Father-In-Law as he wanted a desktop that instead of a dock solution for his laptop and this has worked great for him. Not the most powerful machine, but for what he uses it for is great and the cost was also great as well. This is not a gaming machine and it will not run that way, but for an everyday user that browses the web and opens up a few documents or Excel this is perfect..

    Decent computer that I purchased open-box in store for a great price without a cord, but we had a Lenovo cord so it was a good deal... big hard drive, low memory, the low memory is noticeable but for use as an inexpensive kids or basic college student computer, doing just word processing and internet, it's just fine.

    New Lenovo desktop service terrible

    |
    Posted .

    Geek Squad tells me that within the first six months the hard drive has failed - still under warranty. That the drive is unique and can't be repaired in-house or replaced. It will take three weeks to repair - out of state - and if the repair isn't effective this must happen two more times before a warranty replacement can be processed - just short of 2 1/2 months - at a minimum. I'm without my computer for that long? Is that really the best that Best Buy can do for me? Am I expected to make Best Buy my preferred retailer for computers? That is completely unacceptable. It isn't how you retain customers.

    Good deal for a desk top tower. The only thing I am not liking is now I have to go and load all the products I had on my old one that didn't come on this one. Not real fond of the temp security program they have installed but it is there for those that have none to begin with I guess. Something to start them out with. Other than that it has lots of bells and whistles for the every day computer.
