Lenovo H535 (57327398)


This is the replacement for our previous home computer. Used by two middle schoolers, a 2nd grade teacher and a web developer.

A great box for the price. Minimal, minimal bloatware. Lenovo makes a decent product. I also own a lenovo laptop which is about 5 years old now ; Would recommend and buy again

Needs Improvement


If you never want to add a beefier video card or a couple hard drives or a Blu-ray Drive, then this would be a okay box.

Nice Looking machine

I was going thru the specs... stopped dead in my tracks when I saw it only had a 180W power supply. Come on guys, that's like putting a 1 Gallon fuel tank on a truck ; With a 180W power supply, forget about adding any components. When I used to buy...

Solid Desktop w/ Greater Value-to-Power than Avg


First and foremost, this other person is simply a dolt; this is a review of the computer, NOT Windows. Overall, I highly recommend this product. For the price, there aren't many other computers that give *this* calibre of power. It's pretty, powerful,...

I bought this computer in December for my girlfriend. I was searching to meet the following criteria: reliability in a college environment; less than $650 for the whole setup; minimum 1TB HDD; processing power capable of full HD video playback and...

It is *not* absolutely quiet, but definitely not noticeable unless environment is entirely quiet ; I do not like the CD/DVD tray. It is annoying to open, and it took me like a full minute to figure it out. Feels like I could accidentally break the...

Decent Rig


I used this as the NVR in an IP security surveillance system. It has been everything I've needed. I would not discourage anyone from purchasing this PC, but BE AWARE: I have seen Lenovo motherboards go bad a few days after the 1-year warranty ended....

Decent build, expandable, though limited. Snappy responsiveness and decent "speed". It's a working desktop that I didn't have to build myself ; On-board WLAN is nice. Lenovo eqpt is so pretty. The tower looks good

Only two memory slots, already populated (only using 8GB of 16GB potential). Apparently cheap motherboard

Excellent PC


So far the pc is really good. I haven't ran into too many big problems yet except for the annoying windows 8 features which restarts the pc randomly sometimes, or goes into different menu's when i click something. However windows 8 isn't really that...

Good Graphics Card ; Fast ; Memory and ram is more than enough ; Supports HDMI ; Almost no bloatware

Windows 8 is ok, but i rather have windows 7 ; Only uses 1.75 tb of space and 7.2 gb of ram after windows is installed ; Nothing major yet

I was the first customer


This computer is decent for gaming without any high specs for it, but if you're looking high demanding games you want to run dual graphics and changing it's power supply. Overall it's running great, nothing wrong with the computer. I'm very satisfied...

I've been using it nearly a month now and it's running pretty well, and I can even do dual graphics mode with this and pretty much play any games I want but if you want high demanding games you want to get a high cost dedicated graphics card

Nothing bad so far it's running normally with a power supply change and added graphics card

Bought it on sale and it's great. Intention was to get something that would allow me to add-on and upgrade and it fits the bill ; 30 seconds from hitting the start button to ability to do whatever. Win8. Yep, no issues

None at this time

Ny Computer 50%


My computer literate children saved me from shipping the computer back to you. (I believe the computer was demon possessed) Anyway, it had so many 'pop ups' etc., but they finally got the computer to work.

For the price it is a really great and the AMD A8 makes it a fast computer. Love the HDMI port, instead hooking it to a monitor I hooked it up to a HDTV flat screen. I would recommend this to any one...
