Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 (57327830)


The Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 is an affordable small-form-factor home theater PC offering plenty of I/O ports and a good amount of hard drive storage.

Reasonably priced. Sizable hard drive. Lots of ports.

No room for expansion. Middling performance.

If you're looking for a compact PC to control your home entertainment system or just need an affordable secondary Windows PC, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 is a good choice. Its tiny footprint lets you locate it just about anywhere, and it comes with a...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190


The Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 compact desktop gives users a good way to jazz up their home theatre, provided they don't stray too far from its intended media purposes.

Compact size. Optical drive included. Bundled multimedia remote. Affordably priced.

Weak performer beyond media-related functions.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 review


Tiny enough to hang off the back of your screen

Versatile design ; Excellent connection options ; Plenty of RAM ; Capacious hard drive ; VESA mountable

Uninspiring CPU performance ; Poor graphics prowess ; Initially sluggish ; Not upgradeable

Is there room for simple desktop PCs in a market dominated by laptops and by next-gen consoles? Can the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 stand out? These were questions we had before we even plugged in this machine, and after testing they're still the questions...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 review


This tiny PC has plenty of ports and power for the price, but its lack of upgrade options make it less versatile than other ultra compact systems

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 has its drawbacks, and its 4GB RAM means you're limited in how many intensive tasks you perform at once, but at just £330 it's certainly an enticing prospect for those who want a neat and tidy mini PC and don't want to pay an...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 mini PC review


The IdeaCentre Q190 from Lenovo is a very smart-looking mini PC with a long, slim design which can lay flat on your desk or upright in its supplied stand. It also comes with a VESA bracket for fixing to the back of your monitor.

The IdeaCentre Q190 looks the part and has decent build quality. The option optical digital output and optional matching Blu-ray drive make it good for home theatre use, but it could really do with a more modern processor as performance is somewhat...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190


Meet the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190, a miniature PC that gives you full-fat Windows 8 in a compact shell, and can even be mounted on the back of your telly, all for a relatively low price of just £299.99. We put the base-model to the test to see just how...

Lenovo's tiny Q190 is a brilliant little box that can act well both a basic PC and as a media hub - but only if your watching needs are strictly online and streamable. The higher-end model tops out at £429, and comes with a 1TB hard drive and a Blu-Ray...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 review


With a minute form factor and an unbeliveably low price, is this PC too good to be true?

Tiny form factor, Reasonable build quality, Breathtakingly cheap, Low power consumption

Lack of power, Little versatility, Few business features

Lenovo Q190 (57323864)


Inconspicuous in appearance and size - suits well as a media center for my living room, nice design ; Reasonably fast - sufficient for video and still image streaming ; Comes with a DVD slot drive ; SPDIF output can be used for audio signal routing to...

CPU cash is low and the CPU itself is on a slow side, if you wish to use this machine for personal computing ; I bought mine on Newegg for $279 in April-2015. I don't know why the price is now $679 - not worth it

Does what it is supposed to do


This is connected to a receiver and TV to serve media. Works just fine. Decent picture resolution

The supplied wireless keyboard has keys that are even smaller than the ones on my phone. I couldn't see them in less than perfect light. I replaced it with a Logitech wireless keyboard ; Windows 8 is a pain to use on a TV
