5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant small computer.
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wifi Woes
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...

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.

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) (discontinued by manufacturer) (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!

I love the computer but I HATE Win 8.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wifi Woes, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.
