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
