Summary: I bought this to use as a networked Home Media gizmo... I moved most of my movies and stuff on to it and use VLC to play them. Windows 8 takes a few minutes to figure out... drag your mouse left right up down corner to corner to help figure it out.
Summary: Load of Windows 8 from factory had terrible performance and was nearly unusable. After reload of OS machine performs well for what I need. Hardware appears adequate so it might have been a bad image from the factory. Lenovo support was NOT helpful with their only suggestion being to return the unit. No troubleshooting skills there at all.
Summary: The previous reports that stated that the "controller " was advertised as being included in the box, and when delivered, was found not to be included, are correct. Even though Amazon removed the product from the shelves for a period of time, due to complaints about misrepresentation, when it reappeared as being available to purchase, I thought that the "controller" would be included, it is NOT included.
Summary: I already have one of these mini computers which I bought from a well known high street store at a slightly cheaper price, they sold out. The one bought here was a little more expensive but in stock. On arrival I set it up and it was clear there was something wrong. Set up took 4 or 5 hours! And it never worked properly as I know it can. There was some cosmetic damage to the unit on receipt, suggesting it might have been used by another person before myself.
Summary: The Amazon description is very misleading. The box contents are described as containing a "CONTROlLER" and a picture is shown withe Lenovo hand held controller. The box contained a cheap USB wired keyboard. Very disappointing for a product aimed for the Audio Visual Use.
Summary: This is a good product and should have been ideal for my uses. However, the Amazon description is very misleading. The box contents are described as containing a "CONTROlLER" and a picture is shown withe Lenovo hand held controller. The box contained a cheap USB wired keyboard. Very disappointing for a product aimed for the Audio Visual Use. This casts doubts on my future purchases from Amazon as this was not as advertised or described.
Summary: Despite the Box Contents being advertised as: Lenovo Desktop Power Cord Lenovo Remote Controller Lenovo Mouse User Documentation I received a standard USB keyboard and mouse - no remote controller in sight. For something thats going to be used as an HTPC, thats about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike. I supposed I'm now going to have to spend another £44 for the multimedia remote. Not what I'd expect from Amazon. Box contents should be accurate, not generic.
Summary: Not too pleased with performance with the price paid. Been having problems connecting with the usb as it seems not to be recognising them especially attaching external disc drive. A built in disc drive would have been better.
