  • Summary: Worst new computer I have ever purchased in the last 5 years. I purchased three:, - two for customers. they were so slow out of the box on a gigabit network (30 feet max) network, they would not maintain connection to NAS stored files so kept dropping or taking 5 minutes to open records.

Windows 8 makes this desktop a nightmare!

Otto F. Rohwedder, III "Baby Doc", Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: I have had issues with the unit freezing, issues with the curser freezing as well. Had issues resolved with C/S, however, Windows 8 is a nightmare to use. I wish I had the option to have this desktop with Windows 7.

Piece of Junk

John Zeller, Amazon
24 November 2013
  • Summary: I've had this computer for about two months and have already had to force shut down about ten times. It freezes and becomes completely unresponsive. Task manager won't start up. I'm not gaming or doing anything else that eats up a lot of memory.

  • Summary: I purchased this machine thinking that it came with a monitor. It did not. The machine was displayed with a monitor in the Amazon advertisements. This purchase was price sensitive to me and I had to go out and purchase a monitor which made the machine not price competitive. Very disappointed.

Network connection may cause issues

David "David P.", Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: This is was the 3rd H520s I had purchased and I thought is would be a good computer for the $$$....only $379 for the i3 and $425 for the i5 at the time. However, the last (and final) computer gave us fits even after completely reloading All Win7 software, 64 bit.

There is no support and no help when it is not working out of the box

Edward W. Lord, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: The usb ports on this H520 work for up to a week before the quit. I unplug the peripheral and plug it into another port and it works for awhile then fails and I can switch it back to the first port and it works. This mostly happens with my second monitor and my keyboard.

Beware of extra costs for Pro

Eugene Montanez "Marketing Consultant", Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: So far this Lenovo did boot and was loaded with a bunch of "sample" software included. Unfortunately it did not include Windows 8 Pro (It does not say it does) BUT when an upgrade was needed, the "update to Pro" on the computer was chosen, vs.
