Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 71

 

The Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 71 ($508 direct) is a standard entry-level tower desktop PC for your business. It's not perfect by any means, but it shows that you don't have to settle for buying two-generation old components in a $500 desktop PC. It's...

Nice Price. Decent performance. Good interior room. Serial and Parallel port. Multi monitor support

Only 180W PSU. Only 30-day Norton Internet Security subscription. No next gen ports like HDMI, DisplayPort, eSATA, or USB 3.0. No TPM

At just over $500, the Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 71 gives you enough power to get your non-demanding business users a PC of their own. It's not a speed demon by any means, but it is faster than similarly priced competitors, and has some expansion room.

This PC is designed for small- and medium-sized businesses. It's a reasonably good looking machine despite that and it comes with a decent configuration that will have no problems tackling common office tasks. It could use a longer standard warranty...

Design ; Performance ; Input peripherals

Graphics not great ; No USB 3.0 ; Only 1-year warranty

All up, this is a simple machine with a decent configuration that's well suited for business use. It doesn't have fancy features such as USB 3.0, and it even holds on to some relics from the past, such as PS/2. You get four USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit...

GOOD VALUE IT's LENOVO

 

I m using this PC for surfing the web and e mail etc. It performs well and is great for a basic computer. This computer ran well before I did the upgrades . Runs so quiet I wonder if it is running.

RUNS great. The one I have had very little use and was clean inside. I used a 500 gb hdd, upgraded the PSU to a Seasonic 300 w , added 8 gb G Skill Sniper 1600 mh ram. It came with 4gb 1600 ram. I tried 2 sticks of G Skill Sniper and it works like a...

The mouse and keyboard are very generic.

Works Great and Cheap

 

The refurbisher was great with customer service and helped me with any tech support needed.

Can't really ask for more for a unit for around $100. Great for simple use: Surfing the web and Microsoft Office applications.

Works! ...as intended

 

- bought this as part of a low end gaming rig... just to play League of Legends and Path of Exiles. I bought a PNY geforce GT730 video card for just over $50 after rebate + this rig for $80 after rebate and for $130 I get a Windows score of 5.6 (bottle...

- works, including running downloadable Lenovo diagnostics off their website for CPU, harddrive, memory, etc. - easy to set up, just plugged in and away we went - looks like new

Consumer review by: Conway L. (newegg.com)

Did they even test?

 

Memory Management BSOD. Windows memory check says no issue however after updating bios, lan driver, chipset, audio drivers from Lenovo. Still Blue screening.

Can't beat the price

Obviously was not tested before shipping out. Long wait times for support

Consumer review by: William K. (newegg.com)

Vendor testing inadequate and long hold times for support.

 

This is my updated review after my second problem. I am raising my review to 2 stars from 1 since I now have a working machine. The symptom of the graphics issue is problems rebooting after the 200 Windows 7 updates were installed just after first use.

Price.

If you end up needing support, get ready for the on hold from hell. Wait time to speak to someone are easily 90 minutes, without giving you any estimates on hold times. I had two issues. The first was a bad memory card, which I see at least two others...
