Did not work well for Slingbox streaming

C. Dobre, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Bought this specifically for Slingbox streaming but video was very choppy at 1080p and even at the lowest setting. CPU would max out at 100%, even tried a fresh install of Windows 7 as well as Windows 8 but CPU usage was still topping out. Had no issues with playback on 1080p MKV files but for my purpose it didn't get the job done.

POS

lineyt99, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to hook up to my tv for two purposes - playing DVDs and connecting into my work server. When it actually works it does these two things fine. However, I am constantly getting a black screen. I'm not enough of a tech person to know if this is the machine or a software problem but either way this thing is completely worthless. I've also spent hours installing updates. I'm writing this review from my ipad and will never buy another non-apple product again.

Lenovo Q190 populated with liars and nitwits

Rainwolf127, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the Q190 primarily as a music (media Player) for home surround sound. Lenovo claims to support via HDMI for 7.1 Channel Surround, lossless audio, Bit streaming, Dolby HD, Dolby DTS, Intel HD 3000 Graphics but there is a problem. None of it works. I tested the machine at the Intel site and Intel says the HD graphics are the 2000 series (half the processing capabilities) and NO higher level audio processing seems to be taking place!

Video and wireless suck

V. OSCAR, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: I connected this Q190 to my 32" TV and the video goes out at times, sometimes it takes over a minute to get the video back, also the WIFI sucks, other devices get the WIFI signal well, even my PS3 that is next to this PC gets the signal well, but the PC doesn't get it right. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

  • Excerpt: I have a laptop and it works perfectly fine on TV with wi-fi. I thought instead of having the laptop, I could have a stable mini desktop hence bought this product. To be honest, it is a perfect fit for the job apart from the wi-fi. the device has a really weak receiver hence I could not stream anything over wi-fi. I tried the product with a wired connection and is really good though.
