Lenovo H330: Budget Machine Outperforms Its Category

 

My, how far Budget desktops have come. While Lenovo's orange-accented H330 is definitely "budget"--it starts at just $650--it packs some impressive specs, including an i5 processor, a Blu-ray disc drive, and a 1TB hard drive. Plus, it performs like a...

Great performance for a budget machine ; Blu-ray disc player

Graphics performance isn't great ; No room to tinker

The H330 packs impressive specs for a sub-$800 desktop: a Core i5 processor, 1TB of hard drive space, and a Blu-ray disc drive.

Lenovo H330-77801HU

 

The H330-77801HU has a 1TB, 7,200rpm hard drive, much bigger than the Mac mini's 500GB one. There's a little preinstalled software on the system; most of it being Lenovo's proprietary applications.

Compact form factor fits in tight spaces. Core i5 processor is a strong performer. Blu-ray player. Monitor, keyboard, and mouse included. Discrete graphics processor on board. Big 1TB drive. No Bloatware

No Wi-Fi. Discrete graphics isn't ideal for high-end gaming

The Lenovo H330-77801HU is a great small form factor desktop PC outfitted with features like a Blu-ray player and 1TB hard drive that will appeal to those in need of a media-oriented system. It has almost everything to recommend it, except for Wi-Fi.

Lenovo IdeaCentre H330

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre H330 is a budget machine that actually outperforms most other similar desktops in its category. It has a sub-$600 price and includes an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 1.5TB hard drive. It also has a slim design, but with that...

Lenovo H330 review

 

My, how far budget PCs have come. The Lenovo H330 is definitely "budget" - it costs just £399 from Currys and PC World - it packs some impressive specs, including an i5 processor and a 1TB hard drive. Plus, it performs like a lower-end non-budget PC.

Lenovo's H330 may be a budget machine, but it does have a few tricks up its sleeve- namely impressive performance. This desktop is good choice for people who are looking for general performance, mild multimedia usage, and a small footprint.

Lenovo H330 review

 

Lenovo's H330 may be a budget machine, but it does have a few tricks up its sleeve - namely impressive performance and a Blu-ray player. While I'm not sure you really need a Blu-ray player on a machine that has decent (at best) graphics quality, this...

Powerful little package

 

Lenovo rocks. I've been using their computers for years. Never had one problem. I bench marked this computer and it was much higher then comparably priced computers. I looked up the processor before I purchased it so I knew it was a good one. Really...

Not one complaint or snivel

Bad Hard Drives

 

Nice looking computers, good value overall, would be happy if it wasn't for the hard drives going bad

Of the 8 computers we have, 2 have had hard drives crash after less than 90 days of use. And 1 more is being symptomatic of this. It looks like it was a bad batch of drives or something like this. Also, thought I had the on-site warranty but evidently...
