screws get loose causing breaking of hinges, we need to do class-action Law suite
24 October 2013
Summary: G570 has to be the worst laptop ever I have ever used, my laptop and my dad are the same model, Dad one day called and told me the hinges for the LCD came out, I checked it and it was the screw was holding the hinges was not there, not only that, other screws as will. I thought maybe it happened that the assmebler who built it did not tie the scew good, that shows a bad quality from lenovo .
Summary: While this has been a great running computer, fast with ample storage etc; I am very upset that the hinges are breaking. I have had this computer for about 11 months and have been very careful with it. It has never been dropped or abused in any way. But now inexplicably the hinge is forcing the housing apart. This is inexcusable!!!
Summary: The first thing you notice about this laptop is the cheap feel to it. The plastic feels cheap and flimsy. For the price I didn't expect a superior material, so I was OK with the plastic at first. Less than a year into owning it one of the plastic hinges has already broken giving it an annoying wobble when I type and limiting how well I can position the screen. I rarely moved the laptop although sometimes I did place it in my backpack - although not more than once a week.
Summary: Cheap, shoddy construction. Worked fine out of the box, but less than a year later and the recharge connection has broken loose from the motherboard. It would cost more to fix than it will to replace it. Wish me good luck getting warrantee service.
Summary: I was very happy with this computer and then it fall from the coffee table while the laptop was closed and bye bye screen. Luckily I had purchased insurance for it. I bought 2 of this computers and the other one is still running great. I would have given it 4 or 5 stars but I cannot believe how delicate it is.
Summary: I paid $379.00 in August. I have seen it advertised now for $329.
Pros: Purchased in April 2012. Worked very well for a couple of months.
Cons: Start-up problems began in June and have gotten worse. Usually the problem can be repaired using one key recovery, but this deletes everything. Called Lenovo in August. Technician did not appear to be very knowledgeable regarding the problem. Lenovo sent recovery discs with no directions. Computer would not recognize discs.
Summary: It is unconscionable to me that Lenovo would release this design and call it a "laptop".
Pros: Fast and capable for what it is. Fairly lightweight, decent screen, good keyboard
Cons: Astronomically idiotic design virtually assures that the hing screws will break out of the case. The case supports simply can't handle the torque that the hinges apply to them, even in the gentlest of usage, and anyone with more than a 3rd grade education should have known it. It takes $125+ to get it fixed.
Summary: Bought a Lenovo G575 from Currys. After 10 months noticed the hinge is forcing casing apart. The casing is very thin compared to other laptops I have. Google 'Lenovo hinge problems' and it appears many people have this problem. I never thought I should check casing quality on a laptop before purchase.
