Stylish laptop, with a dark, brushed metal effect finish. Feels well made and solid. I like the feature of the illuminated keyboard, which has 2 levels of brightness or off settings. Very quiet, my laptop cooler can be heard but not the laptop fan, which only seems to kick in when I'm doing intensive processing such as file conversions. Runs very cool, even without the cooler stand. Better than average speakers, which actually have a nice sound unlike most tinny laptop speakers, and I don't have to plug in external speakers when watching a film on it. It even has decent volume and bass. Screen is good with real HD performance and little glare. Several nice features, such as an intensive fan cleaning process to remove dust build up. The second graphic card, an Nvidia Geforce, only comes into play when intensive graphics are needed, such as in game playing; normal usage utilises the built in on board graphics thus saving power.
Although the keyboard has a nice key travel when typing, the right shift key is quite small and very close to the navigation keys, which I sometimes hit instead. This means that my typing has jumped up a line, which for a touch typist is annoying. I've had to adapt my typing slightly to accommodate this.
Lenovo seem to have cut corners by fitting a Broadcom wireless adaptor. For an otherwise powerful computer, it is let down by the poor performance of the wireless, and when it wasn't dropping out, I was barely managing to connect at 5.5 Mpbs. I have had to purchase an external wireless adaptor to actually get a decent connection. With the Asus USB-AC56 Wireless USB Network Interface Card, I now connect at a solid 650 Mpbs and can achieve download speeds close to the maximum of my fibre connection.Read more ›
Backlit keyboard is excellent
Performance is excellent and very fast
Graphics are excellent
Good battery life
Sound is reasonable, but no Bass or punch
No thought whatsoever has been taken when designing the chassis as the surface is an absolute nightmare to
even attempt to keep clean, a dust and smudge magnet that looks good as long as you never use it
The touchpad, without doubt the worst i have ever used on any laptop, cheap, tacky, and worst of all comes supplied with a driver that is completely and utterly useless, so forget about even using it unless you have a mouse plugged in , i got around this by installing a digitally unsigned synaptics driver that the pre-installed windows 8.1 didn't want me to install and i had to bypass the irritating parental security measures just to get the touchpad to a reasonable working level, quite how lenovo can release a laptop at this price with such a comically bad touchpad is open to question
Within a couple of months the letter D flipped off the keyboard. One of the clips holding the letter onto the keyboard had failed. It would hold onto the keyboard for a couple of presses and then fly off. I also had problems with my Bluetooth driver and was not able to use that.
I tried to get some support from Lenovo’s website but my Y510P laptop bought in March was no longer listed. The design of the website was an exercise in how to avoid ever having contact with ones customers. There were no phone numbers to call other than for sales and they told me that I should contact support through the website. I tried the closest equivalents for the Bluetooth drivers but they simply did not work and it just made the problem worse. Of course for my defective Letter D, I was not even getting off the ground.
Eventually in August when I was away I got 4 calls from the customer services group. There was no return telephone number so I was not able to call back. I went on sending emails and eventually in late October, I got a return telephone call from Matthew. This was followed by an email with a link to a Bluetooth driver. Not the one that I had been accessing from the Lenovo site and this one worked. Matthew also sent me a letter D but it was the wrong one. The basic construction was similar, but it hinged from the side and was clearly not made for my laptop.Read more ›
