    Good computer for the price.

    I bought this computer for two things only: trading stocks; and, recording music. It is perfect for both of those things so far. It is extremely fast to start up and the execution of tasks is also extremely quick. Although, it should be mentioned that I updated its RAM from 12 to 16. That is one flaw. I wish it would have come with more RAM or a motherboard to accommodate for 32 GB of RAM - oh well, it still gets the job done flawlessly. Lastly, it should be noted that this computer comes with a BUNCH of bundleware and preloaded apps. It does not bog down the computer too much, but if you take off all of the useless programs and apps, it seems to run a lot smoother. If it weren't for all the useless bundleware and annoying McAffe advertising I would have give it five stars for my purposes. All in all, great buy for the price point.

      The Lenovo IdeaCentre 510A 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 within the consumer computer industry. Lenovo

    I am a semi-pro photographer and was looking for a desktop to replace my existing MacBook Pro. I opted to go back to Windows do to cost. After a week of research and comparing, I bought this desktop. PROS: Speed: It is very fast in running lightroom. I can convert 400 RAW files to JPG Large in less than 30 mins, it would take forever with the old MacBook. Graphics: The installed graphic card is good enough for what the desktop was intended for, photography. I Storage: The 1TB Hard drive is nice but wish it was bigger. USBs: It has plenty of USBs ports, both in the front and back. CONS: I am disappointed I could not add an additional hard drive. I have a 3 TB I was planning to install, but when I open the unit up, there is no room for an additional hard drive. Overall: I would recommend this desktop.

    We are happy with this purchase because what it was listed has been working as expected. I would like that the DVD holder was a little bit more solid, I treat it carefully. I love that is faster and quieter as promised. I can multitask and be still very safe not losing work. I use it also to edit pictures and edit and create videos (Photoshop/Elements) and has been great! So summarizing, hardware is great, software wise is just a comment since is part of Windows 10; I like it but it has so many glitches that Windows 10 interferes somehow with the whole experience, but overall it was a great purchase.

    Fast machine but loud fan

    Setup was easy and the machine performs well. However, the fan is very loud, louder than the fan in any desktop computer I have owned. Also, the fan makes a humming noise, like a dentist's drill. Setting the power setting to Power Saver does seem to help. But what's the point of purchasing a machine with 12GB RAM if you need to run it at reduced CPU speed? The fan problem has been pointed out by owners on the Lenovo website. I wish I had consulted that site before purchasing this computer.

    This PC is great. It's got 12GB of Ram and an 8th gen i7 processor, great for content creators or for high processing programs. One plus about this PC is that it is highly customizable with graphics cards but only able to be upgraded to 16GB of ram :( other than that this PC will give any user from basic search engine use or multi takers with multiple programs open to those who need high in demand hardware from a rig. Thumbs up and the price is not bad for this computer. Definitely one of the best PCs in its class.

    My old Lenovo was 6 years old and slowing down so I decided to replace it. I hope this Lenovo lasts as long and gives me no problems. Customer Service for Lenovo on the internet wants to charge you for anything I found out. So I called Customer Service and they were able to walk me thru my problem. Except when I had to call back this time the man I spoke with was rude. All I was doing was guessing why it was taking so long to reset my computer.

      We are sorry to hear that you are having issues with your Lenovo IdeaCentre 510A desktop. From the description of the issues you are experiencing, it sounds like there is incompatible software installed on your computer. 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. If the problem persists, we recommend you contact Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686. Lenovo

    The description says "give yourself the gift of speed," there is nothing fast about this computer. Turn it on and time it with a calendar! Should you want to add a second monitor, the connection is VGA, technology so old you will be hard pressed to find a monitor or cable to connect it with. Keep moving.....nothing to see here!

      Model number 90HV0005US ships with both VGA and HDMI-Out for video out to a monitor. This model ships with the powerful Six-Core/Twelve-Thread Intel Core i7-8700 processor, supported by 12GB DDR4-2666MHz RAM. This is a very fast configuration. It will boot from off to the Windows 10 desktop in less than 40 seconds. If you are experiencing slow performance, be sure any software you installed is compatible with Windows 10.

    I'm using the machine for streaming and it works excellent, the speed is undeniable. I'm also using Photoshop and other software programs that are processor heavy but no worries or lag at all! Well...the only negative is this machine has no onboard speakers..but that's a minor thing. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

    My first Lenovo purchase "ever" and I must admit that I'm extremely impressed with everything about the hardware. It competes "head to head" with IBM, Dell, Gateway with speed and performance. I was just looking for a generic disposable Windows platform for developing software and came away with a very nice developers IDE.

    I added a nvme m.2 ssd and booted from the new drive and its a totally amped up machine. The only draw back is the memory is not upgradeable beyond 16 gb of ram. But o csn get a bigger m.2 ssd to reallocate more memory to cache if i really need it that bad.
