This is a good product and should have been ideal for my uses. However, the Amazon description is very misleading. The box contents are described as containing a "CONTROlLER" and a picture is shown withe Lenovo hand held controller. The box contained a cheap USB wired keyboard. Very disappointing for a product aimed for the Audio Visual Use.

This casts doubts on my future purchases from Amazon as this was not as advertised or described.

I consider this review to be a complaint!

Great little PC, very fast (unfortunate about Windows 8 system! ) Cannot upgrade to 8.1, no Windows product key provided, unable to find out any info from re-seller, Amazon suggested calling vendor, but I don't see that will be a big result. As others have pointed out, the fan is quite noisy, but where I use it it doesn't really matter. We just like the speed of it! Big disappointment was getting a WIRED keyboard and mouse with it! With the functionality of being able to attach to the back of a monitor, you would think a Wireless option was provided. Nevertheless, I had my own wireless set, so used that instead!

This computer is remarkably small, no larger than one of those external dvd players of a few years ago. It has all the ports you would need for a PC used as a media centre. The box contained a wired mouse and keyboard, which is not so useful, so they never even made it out of the box. Not so much of a problem for me since I already had a wireless keyboard and mouse ready to go.

very useful is the built in WLAN (which i noticed many similar products seem to offer as an option, not as standard!) the WLAN had no problem picking up my wifi signal, and performance is good, the limit seems to be my rather limited broadband performance rather than any issues with the WLAN hardware.

I bought it principally to connect to my projector for BBC iPlayer, Netflix, iTunes and general web browsing, and so far it does all of these things beautifully. Playback of HD streams even at 1080p is smooth and artifact free.

I tested the performance of the system with Google Earth, full screen.. flying over the Himalayas, again super smooth with no jerkiness of the detailed 3D terrain. I use Chrome as my standard web browser and with several content heavy tabs open the Q190 never showed any signs of slowing or stuttering.

One of the previous reviews mentioned the noise from the fan and whilst it does make some noise, I have to put my ear pretty close before i can hear it, the fan on the projector in any case is much louder than this unit. If you are using this as a media PC, I don't think fan noise will be a factor at all.

Of course this comes with Windows 8 installed, which may be an issue for some, but to be honest I don't mind it at all, learn a few keyboard shortcuts and all is well ( why do none of my friends and family know about the "windows" key!!

Despite the Box Contents being advertised as:

Lenovo Desktop
Power Cord
Lenovo Remote Controller
Lenovo Mouse
User Documentation

I received a standard USB keyboard and mouse - no remote controller in sight. For something thats going to be used as an HTPC, thats about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike.

I supposed I'm now going to have to spend another £44 for the multimedia remote.

Not what I'd expect from Amazon. Box contents should be accurate, not generic.

At 7 inches high and 3/4 inches thick you get a full feature properly powered i3 Win 8 PC in the same footprint as a mini tablet with about the same weight. What's not to like? Easy to pack in your briefcase. Away from home I can plug in a monitor, keyboard and mouse and have all the functions of my PC at home. At home this is a great machine too. Nobody needs a tower for everyday use and a laptop doesn't cut it.

This is a tiny pc and has great functionality.
Windows 8 is a slight flaw but you can always put linux or win7 on it.
Its Powerful enough to play 1080p HD videos ( windows 8 needs a few hours of use so you may see some stuttering to begin with).
Plays Hd video files Fine.
The Wifi is good, ( mine is quite close though)
It isnt that loud but if you were in a silent room you would hear it.
Mine didnt come with a remote.
The mouse and keyboard are Awful!
Price is slightly on the higher side.

The previous reports that stated that the "controller " was advertised as being included in the box, and when delivered, was found not to be included, are correct. Even though Amazon removed the product from the shelves for a period of time, due to complaints about misrepresentation, when it reappeared as being available to purchase, I thought that the "controller" would be included, it is NOT included. Amazon ought to send everyone that purchased this product a "controller" free of charge as am act of good faith, I doubt that they will.
