    Good Mid-range Tower

    Posted .

    Thank you for reading my review. My main purpose for this computer was to use it for business. Banking, Quicken, and a few other things that wouldn't need too much process power. That is what this computer is good for. It is not a slow computer to get frustrated with, but it is not a fast computer to handle hard graphic gaming. I bought this computer with the Samsung - CF591 Series 27" LED Curved Monitor - Silver and it looks beautiful on my desk. I only play one game online and that is Left4Dead2 and the min video requirement is 256MB of dedicated video ram so I knew the 2GB would be sufficient. The ran into a little sna-fu when I tried to set it up. Setting it up with the original specs works perfect. I had no issues, but I wanted to add a 500 GB Samsung Solid State hard drive and I was installing Windows 10 using a flash drive. It installed okay, but when the setup program reboot to setup the hardware devices, it froze at the lenovo post/boot screen and I couldn't go further. I tried 2 times to do a full setup of Windows but nothing. So, I have to return the SSD back to best buy. I am not sure if it was the drive, the Windows program. Another thing that I must warn you about. Inside the case is not 2.5 user friendly. Most SSD drives comes in 2.5 inch and the plasic covers that hold the existing hard drive does not use screws to hold the drive in, but it uses pin holes. That is fantastic for the hard drive, but if you want to secure the SSD, you have to buy or have to have your own laptop screws (4 to be exact) to secure the SSD on the plastic case. The good news is that there are screw holes that you can use to secure the SSD if the SSD drive has screw holes on top of the drive.

    Good Specs for a Good Price

    Posted .

    I purchased this desktop as a much needed upgrade from my Asus laptop, mainly for graphic design purposes as well as a bit of gaming. I had initially planned to build my own computer, but I found this as I was browsing my local Best Buy, and found it to be more than sufficient for my needs, so I bought it on sale for around $600. My initial impressions are good, and I immediately noticed the fast startup due to the SSD and the overall improvement from my laptop. From a cosmetic and physical standpoint, the case is appealing to me because of the sleek design without the gaudiness of a lot of gaming computer cases. My only real issue in terms of physical accessibility is the fact that the tower does not fit nicely on its side, and I prefer my tower to sit on my desk. Normally, this would not be too much of an issue, but because the anterior USB slots are on the top of the machine, I tend to have cords in front of my face. This is really my only gripe with the computer. Aside from that, there are plenty of USB slots, which is important to me, and the overall design is very nice. As for the specifications, I am very pleased. The GeForce GT 730 card is serving its purpose well, and 8 GB of RAM have proved to be plenty for my purposes. I am happy with hard drive speeds, especially when using the SSD. I was thankful to have found something with an Intel processor as well, which is making Photoshop and After Effects jobs much more tolerable. No major problems in this field. There is a bit of pre-installed software (as is to be expected with most computer) that I have not had any issues uninstalling. This process was painless for the most part, which is great compared to in some other machines I've used in the past. Overall, I would certainly recommend this computer to anyone who is looking for a machine that will get things done smoothly without completely breaking the bank.

    Two new things came into my life in the same week, three years ago, this PC and the current president. This PC was definitely the more helpful and less troublesome acquisition :D Seriously, though, In my 20 years of buying PCs for home use, I can honestly say this was the best performing and most reasonably priced. I don't do any serious gaming on it. But I do put its computing speed and memory to the test. I regularly have multiple browser windows open, along with one or more (very often, MORE) additional programs running. I enjoy spending time creating and editing graphic art, Additionally, I run the typical social media platforms (Twitter, Pinterest, etc), I utilize a lot of digital documentation & literature, most of the Microsoft office tools, etc, etc. This PC handles all my demands, and has performed reliably for three years now. I would make the same choice if I had it to do again.

    I am absolutely in love with my new desktop! It was easy to set up; Windows 10 is a VAST improvement to the old windows 8.... I also love how silent this computer is; you don't even notice it's running. We've used this computer hours on end and it never makes a sound. The specs were wonderful as well; definitely worth the price tag! Now, to find a monitor that is up to par with this...

    the new CPU does a good Job!

    Posted .

    My experience wasn't good at all! It took just slightly less then two hours to purchase the computer and schedule an appointment for data conversion. I had an old computer that I paid to have data conversion. I purchased the computer and was told that data conversion wouldn't be an issue but was never warned it could be a problem! On Sunday I received a call and told that there was a problem with the data conversion and my hard drive was toast but they would see what they could do? I was told that one tech started the conversion and this second tech took over on Sunday. I received no reply? That MondayI le3ft on a business trip and started to call the store about 5:00PM. I eventually spoke to a Frontend manager and was basically told that this happens and to come and pickup my computers. I total him that was in-acceptable and he said "well if that's they way I feel" By the way I called at least five time and was put on hold and then disconnected. I didn't speak to the front end manager until 8:45 (the store closes at 9:00)! I was told that they only had one tech in the department on Mondays but I could call Wednesday when the Geek Squad Manager would be available. When I called on Wednesday at least this manager was more professional but told me there was nothing they could do. They had an option to send my old computer to a central location but it could take 3 weeks or longer to retrieve the data and would cost as much as $500. Later I was called back by the same Tech Manager and told it would take two to three months?? I am a small business person and I needed my old data. My wife picked up both computers (new and old one) and when I returned from my business trip I called anoth4er professional computer repair firm and they we able to retrieve my data form my old firm and load "Office" on the new CPU! This took less then a day and I picked up the new CPU the following day! Of course it wasn't worth my time to go back to Best Buy and to seek a credit for the cost of the repair but I doubt I would ever purchase another computer form your firm and I will certainly let the individuals I come in contact with let them know how poorly your Geek Squad performed! Thanks for making my life miserable and costing me my time and money to coprrect your mistake!!!!

    Got this computer for gaming and it handles the load very well (ex. Skyrim with ultra high graphics and no lag) the keyboard and mouse that comes with it are pretty generic and a little awkward but those are things that get replaced anyways when using the computer to its full potential.

    Amazing desktop

    |
    Posted .

    I have a MacBook Pro that I love as my laptop, but in my office I have always had and always will have a desktop. I know I could have gotten a IMac but it wasn't in my budget. I like having both OS to work with for multiple reasons. I currently had a ASUS desktop that I purchased at BB and to the best of my memory, have had it for 8 years. It ran like a beast, just a very slow beast and I knew it was time to upgrade. I'm not one to really keep up to date on things until I need something. I'm truly one to over internet and over review, to the point it becomes frustrating. To make a long story short, I wasn't all that aware of the Lenovo product. I was looking for bang for the buck.....thats where my budget was at the time. I made two trips to my local BB. First trip was a disaster as far as help goes. Walked out and reread reviews. The next trip in I was fortunate enough to get some help from a young man, who could talk my talk. Anyway back to the Lenovo, my sales persons listened to my wants and we narrowed it down to two Lenovo products. I believe this was retailing at 629.00 and they had it on sale for 499.00. Jumped at it because of the i5 processor. Got it home, set up was so easy and get anxiety when doing this, thinking I will do something wrong. I could hardly tell it was on. This has to be one of the quietest machines ever built. It lives under my desk, and I had to actually get down on my hands and knees and put my ear against it to hear anything. Did I mention its blazing fast...well it is. Of course I realize what I was used to was a relic. For those who issued the bad reviews, I guess with anything, especially electronics there are bound to be a few lemons out there, thats why I purchased the maintenance agreement. I am not a "mechanic", thats why I look to the professionals who are. Thanks BB for offering a superior product at such an affordable price, and thank you Lenovo for an amazing product. If your in the market, I would tell anyone to buy this on sale or at full retail. From my perspective you will NOT be disappointed.

    Got it for a steal

    |
    Posted .

    Pros: 1. Got it on a deal for $499 2. Fast quad-core processor that can turbo-boost 3. Nearly silent, I can barely notice it is running. 4. It has a very stylish and modern looking case, not over the top. You can easily be proud of this on your desk at work, or have it at home and it looks stylish and professional. 5. Lots of USB 3.0 ports, and the two front USB 3.0 ports are in a wonderful spot, easy to access. 6. It has a hybrid hard drive that is plenty fast. This thing boots cold in about 5-10 seconds at the most. Cons: 1. The keyboard is awful, out of the box it has a very sticky space-bar and fatigues your thumbs when typing. I tried prying it off and shaving off what I thought was the problem but it only helped a little, but it still is very stiff. I have a Lenovo Yoga 710-15 and it has an awful keyboard as well so Lenovo does not have a good track record for keyboards. 2. The graphics card it comes with only has connections for an hdmi and a vga, which is not enough. I am currently running a USB powered DVI connector, so when I use my third screen, it takes up roughly 30-40% of my CPU to do things on that screen. 3. I emailed Lenovo weeks ago to get an answer as to what and how I can upgrade this machine with, and they have not answered me back. I still want to know how I can upgrade this to a better GPU that has more connections so I do not have to run a USB powered screen extender. Please Lenovo, get back to me on this so I can upgrade this machine. I have spend over $1,500 on Lenovo computers in the last month so please do not lose my future business over not contacting me back. Overall: For $499-$600, it is hard to compete with this machine. It can run most modern games on low settings and 720p at 30-40 frames per second, which would be comparable to a modern console. This can be used as a casual gaming machine and even better as a workhorse for your career as I am doing just that. Overall, a great computer.

    Decent mid Level Desktop

    Posted .

    We are Mac user family for a while now, own Imac and MacBook pros mostly, for some applications we needed a Windows PC, so budget was to spend as low as possible we tried a low budget Laptop last year but it was disaster, so this time we settled for Desktop apart for mobility this works well, this Lenovo desktop is new at best buy, the older version have very decent specs and good reviews so I got this one, my use was mostly MS office and occasional Netflix and YouTube. setup was very easy, connected it to Samsung UHD monitor (got it same day) and Logitech 710 KB mouse combo. Installed office and I was up and running in 30 minutes. 8 GB SSD definitely helps in boot time, I would recommend this system for normal internet and MS office use, may be low end games. I will add RAM maybe if needed, have to see if it is using two 4GB sticks or one. . good overall Desktop. At work I use windows 7 and not used to win 10 but it works, installing apps for printers and other accessories was not difficult for new win 10 user.

    Very good computer, but, Lenova puts a lot of Bloat ware into their units. I could get by without Reachit, Shareit.. In my opinion it takes up valuable disk space.. Let me decide on what to download and use.

    Good Upgrade to Win 10

    |
    Posted .

    I actually advised my BFF to get this machine. It is a really good machine for the price. It was a replacement for an ancient 32bit Vista machine that had been well used since new. The hybrid drive helps this PC boot faster than a standard HDD, but it doesn't hold a candle to a SSD based machine. I'm not to sure about the gaming claims however but not a problem since this is more for everyday use and photo/video editing it seems more than up to the task. I can't be to sure about upgrade ability however. There is only one slot for a second HDD and it required SATA power/data connection. There is also plenty of room for a larger GPU, but there seems no way to use a powered GPU. The custom PSU only uses a standard 4 prong CPU connector the mainboard connector I have not seen before, definitely not standard. The power connectors for the HDD/ODD connect to the motherboard and Not the PSU directly which is rather odd to say the least. This is a fine machine to get a non-hardcore gamer into the 21st century.

    This is a very nice desk top computer. It is fast (for Hdd) & has lots of storage. Also lots of memory always helps. It was a very fast setup & connected quickly to my wireless router. Also my printer install was fast & trouble free. There is some room for expansion if an extra SSD or Hdd is added, But not much. I wanted to add an extra SSD or 2 but I am limited because of the connections on the mobo & power supply. My previous HP (a smaller unit) had 6 mobo & power supply connections each. I didn't use all but it was nice to have 2 extra when I installed my extra SSD & another dvd-rw drive. This is a nice unit & I don't think you will go wrong in purchasing it.

    I had to replace my last computer because Windows Vista was no longer going to be supported. I could have just updated my software, but my computer was almost 8 years old....time for an upgrade. This computer has way more memory than my last and run great. I was somewhat hesitant of getting a Lenovo, since I normally purchase HP or Dell products, but I am glad that I did my research on this computer. I have had no problems so far and I am extremely pleased with the speed and options on this computer. I would recommend this to my family and friends or anyone that is looking for a great family computer. It has the speed and space for the entire family. It serves my needs since I do not use it as a gaming computer.

    I was looking for something to replace my 10 year old quad-core computer I use primarily for home video editing and Steam gaming. The discrete graphics card is good enough for clear, crisp gameplay of Wolfenstein, Portal and other Steam games. It's 1TB drive has good, fase I/O, and my video rendering is working much better than my old computer. My only gripe is that I tried to swap out the internal DVD-RW with my standard LG Bluray-RW and the tray slot is about 1/8" off and the door won't open. I'm running my computer without a faceplate until I can figure out how to shim the drive to get it to fit through the hole.

    I needed a new home computer and wanted a desktop that started up fast, was easy to configure, had room for expansion. I have never owned a Lenovo but this machine is awesome. I don't use it for gaming or streaming, so I can't comment on that. It comes with very little pre-loaded junk, so set up was easy. I have a Microsoft 365 account, so when I logged into OneDrive, it activated the Microsoft Office programs that came pre-installed. Connects to my 5g router and printer setup was simple. It boots up quickly and starts from sleep mode quickly. It is very quiet compared to my old HP. I also like the extra space in the tower so I will be able to add things over time if needed.

    Powerful Computer for the Price

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this computer for a client of mine who runs a catering company. Although this PC is overkill for the type of work he does, I wanted him to have a PC that would last 4-5 years and I am glad I chose this Lenovo PC. One of the reasons I chose this PC over others was the incorporation of a tiny solid state cache that sits on top of the normal hard drive. Although the solid state is very small in size, it helps "trick" the user into thinking that they are using a dedicated solid state drive. This means that they will still have a very fast boot up time, and commonly used programs will start faster. I did a lot of research before purchasing, and I could not have found a better PC for the price!

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo IdeaCentre 710 desktop for your client. The hybrid hard drive within the IdeaCentre 710 does in fact have an 8GB solid state memory cache within the drive case, that is dedicated to the operating system - No trick involved. As you point out, this gives the user fast boot up and wake up of the device without loosing hard drive capacity that a traditional 1TB 7200 RPM HDD brings with it. We are pleased to hear that the value and performance of the IdeaCentre 710 is working out so well for your client. lenovo

    I purchased this tower as an Open Box to save a lot of money. It came without a power cord, cables, or documentation. It more than meets my needs. Be aware that many manufacturers no longer honor warranties on open box electronics. I found this out after the sale when I called Lenova technical support with a question and learned there was a week left on the warranty. That was a surprise because the sales clerk told me the computer came with a full warranty. A manager stepped up and agreed to a negotiated deal to reduce the cost of the computer to cover half of a Geek Squad service agreement.
