5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Simple 10 Feb 2014
Style Name:Intel Celeron 1017U|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a basic medium [mediocre] performance PC to act as a management hub for my entertainment sources of video and music which are stored on ext. HDDs. I tried Android options but found them too limiting but had no wish to assign a full blown PC to this task. I came across the range of bare bones PCs and finally opted for the Lenovo IdeaCentre. Very pleased with it - it is on the home network so I can stream music and audio to virtually any device in the house, in addition to playing videos and music via the HDMI output onto the TV. Also it does scheduled backups and works well with a simple wireless k'bd/mouse combo from Logitech. Plenty of USB ports, esp. if you add some powered USB bridges...

All in all - ticks every box on my list!

2.0 out of 5 stars Wifi Woes 20 July 2014
By Splodge
Style Name:Intel Pentium 2127U|Verified Purchase
Very compact and well designed. General performance was very good, but having upgraded the supplied Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, the wireless driver for the Q190 was incompatible with Win8.1 and the wifi ceased to work. Found a fix for this via an internet forum (i.e. download an earlier driver for the wireless adapter), but Lenovo support was poor in this respect.

Moreover, the Q190's wifi simply would not perform adequately (with Win8 or 8.1) and the average download speed it achieved was a woeful 0.7mbps via my BT Homehub 5, whereas I usually get 12-17mbps (and continued to do so with my 7 year old laptop and other devices). After an entire weekend spent trying to fix the problem by adjusting settings on the Q190 and on my Homehub, I gave up, returned it to its factory settings and returned it for a refund. Shame, as it seemed very suitable in all other respects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ultra compact pc at an appealing price 11 May 2014
Style Name:Intel Celeron 1017U
I recommended this to a friend who wanted a small form factor pc for basic office/web/email use and wanted to save space and keep the budget fairly modest.
Having had a chance to use the Lenovo Q190 I'm fairly impressed in most respects with the unit.

One of the problems in the past with SFF (small form factor) pc's is they were underpowered mostly using Atom processors, whilst the CPU inside this one isn't state of the art by any means it does offer better performance and quite satisfactory for non power users.

A quick summary of my good/bad points:

+ Very small footprint (192mm height, 155mm width and 22mm depth) that's nice and compact
+ Decent build overall feels solid enough for a compact PC
+ Pretty good price for a SFF pc, 4GB ram and 500GB hard drive should proved adequate for most users
+ Improved performance v previous models esp processor wise, suitable for office, normal use
+ Good connectivity, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi built in, 6-in-1 card reader (SD and MS cards), HDMI out, S/PDIF+Audio In/Out, 2 x USB 3.0, 4 x USB 2.0, 1 x VGA output, wired LAN port, headphone and mic socket. That's most of what you would need included.
+ Lower power consumption/energy efficient
+ You get a wired keyboard and mouse included, they are of acceptable/normal bundle quality
+ On-board graphics are capable of playing back HD media without pressuring the CPU much, this isn't a games pc but you can play some lighter games on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 23 Mar 2014
By MrsH
Style Name:Intel Celeron 1017U|Verified Purchase
Arrived within 24 hours and does exactly what it says on the tine. Can't believe the size which is smaller than the sattv box. Got it to connect the tv to the internet and then found out the tv was internet ready (doh!) but will be keeping it for basic computer usage and back-ups. Love it.
