    Best little Machine

    |
    Posted .

    My parents needed a PC. I know they're not as savvy, so I thought I'd check out some deals at my favorite local best buy. I'd seen several of these little guys on display, and though it would be perfect for my folk! It works well! Great value, they love it. I'm pleased.

    Good General-Purpose Desktop

    |
    Posted .

    Easy to set up, just "feels right" straight out of the box. However, 4GB memory is a bit skimpy, but it can take 16GB max, which installed easily. Looking at the innards, though, it's obvious any further upgrades (extra drives, etc.) will have to be external - no room for more internal drives. The 4 USB 3.0 ports (two front, two back, plus 2 USB 2.0 ports) mean no problems adding adequately fast external drives. Only REAL con I can see so far is no obvious way to access BIOS settings, but that's not a show-stopper. With a little research... All in all, an adequate value for the price.

    Fast, efficient, capable!

    If you're not into gaming and don't require massive amounts of memory (for things like advanced/professional picture/video editing or advanced graphics work) - just need a solid, working computer that doesn't take up very much space - this one is worth considering. This is a great entry level computer which is also more than adequate for small businesses. And the price can't be beat! If you buy the 'low end' version (that only has 4gb of RAM), the RAM is easy to upgrade and you can do it yourself in minutes. I bought an additional 4gb RAM card, installed it easily (found several tutorials on YouTube) and enabled multi-tasking on a level that 4gb alone could not handle. If you do want/need to use more demanding editing programs, the RAM can be increased to 16gb and you can add to - or replace - the hard drive with larger capacity SSDs for even greater speed and capacity. I bought mine with a 1tb standard hard drive, so, you do hear the HD at startup, and sometimes when it is 'thinking' quietly in the background, but, in general, it is a very quiet hard drive. If you need a silent hard drive, and have the extra cash to invest, the SSDs make no sound and are much faster. That is another upgrade (adding a second hard drive or replacing it) that you don't have to be a Tech Engineer to accomplish. The 510s-08ish does everything that I need it to do and has worked flawlessly from the moment I set it up - which didn't take very much time at all. For a novice user, student, or small business owner, this is a great choice. Examine your options, determine your processing needs and make sure it's a 'good fit' for you. You won't be disappointed in this desktop! The only 'negative' that I found with this unit is the CD/DVD drawer - it's a little flimsy and you do have to be careful with it, but, as long as you don't handle it too roughly, it's fine and works well! I still give this unit 5 stars because - for this price - I wouldn't expect that every component would be indestructible. I will just be careful with the CD/DVD drawer. I couldn't find a better desktop in this price range. As long as you don't ask it to do anything that it isn't designed to do, it will perform very, very well for you! I would definitely recommend this desktop!!

    Good little workhorse PC

    Posted .

    Unless you're playing graphic intensive video games or video editing this little computer has everything for the casual user. The PC itself is small which is nice, I have had gigantic PCs that are just an eyesore. There's no frills and flashing lights but it gets the job done. The processor seems to handle everyday tasks quite well, so far have not had any issues with stuttering or lag even on 1080p resolution. My only issue with it is it has only 4gb of ram, but again this is plenty for casual use like browsing the internet or playing netflix, the PC seems to be extremely efficient for the limited resources it has, this is the upside of buying from an established brand name. Of course you're not going to play games on ultra max resolution on this thing but that is not what it's for.

    This is a nice home computer. It works great as long as you don't try to have too many programs running at the same time. It would be great for your e-mail and social media and works quite well with Microsoft Office.

    Working fine now, but initially....

    |
    Posted .

    Initially I had some trouble with this computer and the internet at work. I would hook this computer up at home or a friends and connect to the internet no problem. Then brought it to work and it would connect to the internet at first then stopped. However if I used another computer or laptop at work there were no issues connecting. It seems to wrk now fine but for awhile it was acting a little weird with connecting online. I'm no computer genius either so I bought this ready made computer instead of have my someone build me one to avoid dealing with any issues. Therefore 4 stars

    Never heard of Lenovo until purchase. So all the programs were new to me. The PC talked me through complete setup. PC requirements minimal. No over kill with specs. Got just what I needed for a good price.

    Good Basic Computer

    |
    Posted .

    Good basic computer is what I was looking for and this Lenovo seemed like the best bet for the money. It has a core i3 processor and runs Windows 10; both of which I consider essential. It also has a 1 TB HD which is of course massive. I would have preferred a SSD, but can't have it at this price. I held back a star because the DVD drive is a flimsey piece of junk. If you use one a lot beware.

    Great Little Computer!

    I needed an updated computer tower, and after looking at reviews online as well as comparing different stores, I found Best Buy to have the absolute best price for exactly the product I was looking for. I needed a compact tower, and this Lenovo fits the bill. It is small, quiet, fast and came with a keyboard and mouse. It is the perfect little computer for my online school work, research and social media. I do not play video games or watch You Tube, so I am not concerned with processor or video card capabilities. I have had no issues with it, and would recommend this to any one who needs a good, reliable entry level computer, or just a replacement for an outdated machine. It's compact size is perfect for a small desk.

    Nice Tower

    This is my first Lenovo, and the first open box computer I’ve ever bought. Very nice computer! It’s decently fast (not a gaming computer by any means) and pairs well with the other accessories I have. The only issue I had, and I don’t think it was a Lenovo or hardware problem, but the WiFi card stopped connecting to my Comcast router. I had to run a hardline to it for internet access. Overall, great system!

    Not sure why some say it's slow because it's pretty fast!! Set up was really easy. The connection to external devices such as printers and wifi was a breeze. I do not like windows 10, but it is what it is. This is what you get when your windows 7 computer gets hardware failure. The Bluetooth feature works great. Love the wireless file transfers. Sent mp3s to my phone without any problems. Overall Lenovo seems to have made a pretty solid unit!!

    Good Computer Buy

    I was very hesitant about buying a new computer and was really glad to have made the choice in purchasing this Lenovo computer with a Best Buy reps help. I've given this quite some time, to make a proper review summary on it. I think this computer is great, but don't care for windows 10, though it came with all the bells and whistles of how to use it.

    I have purchased economical towers from Best Buy in the past and have had very little problem with them. My last one was an EMachine that lasted seven years before crashing. This Lenovo should last at least this long, if all goes well. It has only been two months and the unit is functioning properly, with little lag on start up. I am please with this purchase and shall do this type of purchase again in the future.

    This is a nice machine but has some limitations. It is great for getting online or working with Microsoft Office but tends to bog down if you need to have several programs running at the same time. This would be a good machine for a student or even a small business.

    This desktop fits perfectly in the TV cabinet and is connected to the TV via HDMI cable. With a wireless keyboard, the TV is a perfect monitor for surfing, watching movies, facebook, and all the things I do on my laptop but with a 42-inch screen. It is very useful when more than one person wants to view the screen at the same time. The Lenovo is picture perfect, fast, and a breeze to set up.

    Fast, compact, easy setup and great WIFI reception

    Posted .

    Did a bunch of hunting and comparisons - the 6th generation i3 smokes my 3rd gen i7 laptop - will probably up the RAM to 8 but runs fine on 4. The external antenna for WIFI really made a difference - runs like I have it hard wired. 4 USB 3.0 and a 1 TB hard drive make it great for input and storage. A really good buy under $400.

    I purchased this desk top for my son to play some games on, watch YouTube, and do research for school work. This computer has exceeded all my expectations and then some. I ask a lot of questions in store before my purchase and the sales associate was very knowledgeable of all the computers in the store. This computer seemed right from my questions and the sales associate was correct, it works great!! Thumbs up to Best Buy for helping me in the right desk top.
