5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Simple
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Had to return it
I already have one of these mini computers which I bought from a well known high street store at a slightly cheaper price, they sold out.

The one bought here was a little more expensive but in stock.

On arrival I set it up and it was clear there was something wrong. Set up took 4 or 5 hours! And it never worked properly as I know it can...

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Simple, 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 Ultra Small Form Factor Desktop PC - (Silver/Black) (Intel Celeron 1017U 1.6GHz Processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, LAN, WLAN, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 Celeron 1017U, 11 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 Ultra Small Form Factor Desktop PC - (Silver/Black) (Intel Celeron 1017U 1.6GHz Processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, LAN, WLAN, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
I ordered this compact pc on Tuesday and it arrived on Thursday as promised. I love it. It has Windows 8 which needs getting used to but soon as you do, it's a great desktop. It takes up no space at all which is great. The fan is noisier than my laptop but it's not a big issue. It runs great and let me install all software I want. I only have it for two days but all in all, I am very happy with my purchase.

I didn't receive a remote control but a mouse instead. It would have been nice to be able to try out the remote control but I'm mainly using the desktop for browsing and gaming.

Thanks Amazon

Excellent value for money. So small it looks like an external hard drive. Fast processor speed too. I would not change it for any other PC.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent product, 26 Jan 2014

The PC on it's own is a absolute fantastic product. The only thing that can subtract from the experience is the horrible windows 8 that comes on it. Buy without or remove and put windows 7 instead.

The Lenovo is neat and small with more ways to connect and attach to otgher devices than anyone could want.
I love the computer but I HATE Win 8.
Why have Amazon stopped selling this model?

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.

On arrival I set it up and it was clear there was something wrong. Set up took 4 or 5 hours! And it never worked properly as I know it can.

There was some cosmetic damage to the unit on receipt, suggesting it might have been used by another person before myself.

Eventually I returned the unit for a refund as it just didn't work properly.

I bought another a little while later from another retailer.

The double unit that includes the additional Blu Ray optical drive is almost impossible to source, even directly from the manufacturer in the UK.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as described, 19 Oct 2013

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.
