3 out of 5 eggsNot as expandable as suggested

Pros: Fairly fast, not very noisy for most tasks.

Cons: Does NOT have room for two optical drives (claimed in the description).

The descriptive text says " There's room for two optical disc drives", but all I found was a solid non-perforated panel where the opening in the frame for the second 'upper' optical drive would be.

And, the front panel doesn't have a second 'flip down' cover even if it did. And, there's no 'tools-free' bracket provided to attach to the drive to be able to mount it even if there was a slot.

When I added an old second hard-drive I ended up removing it because the computer frame would cyclically 'buzz' from the two drives vibrations interacting. With only the one drive (that it came with) this isn't heard.

Other Thoughts: I don't think this as expandable as the description would lead you to believe. First off, there's the business about not actually being able to add a second optical drive. (I ended up swapping out their drive for my Blu-ray drive).

My K450e came with a 435W power supply, so you might need to upgrade it if you upgrade to a more power-hungry video card.

There are only two free x1 PCIe expansion slots. (One is right next to the 2-Slot video card, so you might only really get one of those to use if the card closest would block the video cards fan).

'Quiet' and 'Noisy' can be relative terms, but I'll give you my impression. At idle mine is not silent, but not very noisy either. I can hear it running from under the desk where I put it.

I tried running a game to see how noisy the video card was, and with 'Borderlands 2' it wasn't much louder than at idle. (It performed well at 1920 x 1200 as well).

But, running the Unigen benchmark 'Heaven' (where it pushes the video card hard) and I think the system becomes noisy when the video card fan noise ramps up significantly.

The BIOS is relatively spartan, but functional. My main complaint is that I didn't find a way to turn off Hyper-Threading. It can boot automatically to either UEFI or BIOS if desired. (So far, I've only been able to boot BIOS 32/64 bit and 64-bit UEFI though).

I nuked WIndows 8.1 and installed Windows 7 Pro, so I can't attest much to what Lenovo provides by default for software.

Overall, it seems decent except for the limitations mentioned above. As I mentioned, video performance in Borderlands 2 (one of the few games I've actually tried so far) was very smooth.

This is mainly my wife's computer and seems like a good enough fit for her use (and hopefully as well for some use for the kids games).

As far as games go, my only concern (having only tried one so far) is if any of them would work the video card hard enough to ramp up the fan to the 'noisy' level...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat desktop!

Pros: Fast desktop.
Graphics card matches computer speed.
Lots of memory.
Upgraded power supply for the graphics card upgrade.

Cons: McAfee internet security bundled in.

Other Thoughts: My plan was to upgrade the C: drive to an SSD by migrating the OS on the hard drive that comes with the system. This plan failed when removing McAfee Internet Security (major piece of junk) shredded the OS beyond repair. So I had to buy a copy of Windows 8.1, and install the SSD that way. Also put in a second SSD drive to use as a data disk, since SSD prices have become much more reasonable now.

Don't know why any OEM would include McAfee "security" junk. When I was starting to work on migrating the OS to SSD, it took the system performance down to zero. It wouldn't allow me to download anything that I needed or get into it to adjust its settings, or even temporarily disable it, and was nearly impossible to remove. Be sure to get the special uninstaller from McAfee, that was about the only thing I was allowed to download. So migration of the existing OS was out, had to essentially rebuild the system on SSD, with drivers from Lenovo, but since I've been down that road before a few times, not a problem for me. If I were Lenovo, McAfee couldn't pay me enough to put their junk products on the computers that I sell.

The resulting configuration, Windows 8.1 with two SSD's, runs really well, very fast and quiet. And the graphics, using the GTX 760, match the speed of the computer nicely. Very happy with this desktop as I have it configured. Meets all my media streaming needs well, no problems. Really happy with this system, especially after returning a Dell XPS 8700 that I couldn't upgrade the graphics card on...and the Nvidia GT 720 that was included with the Dell computer just couldn't keep up with the rest of the system.

5 out of 5 eggsthe Lenovo K450E

Pros: I needed a computer that would do everything i needed at my fingertips without the word "buffering" appear on the screen. I searched through a lot of systems little memory (4GB) which was within my pocket-book but they were not fast enough in fact the fastest was under 3GHz. then i came upon the Lenovo and when i read the specs , well i had to have it but it was not within my budget but Newegg offered me their credit card with a 12 months same as cash so now it was within my budget. Figure 12GB RAM the intel core i7 chip with a clock speed 3.6GHz 1TB HDD SSD drive how could i ever go wrong with those specs. Well I've had the unit for about a month now and it's pure pleasure and you know what no "Buffering"

Cons: well just one i was not able to add a second CD/DVD burner as promised in the specs because the bay was sealed, unable to cut through it so now I'm stuck with a DVD drive (cannot return it)

Other Thoughts: if you are a serious computer gamer, computer buff, this unit is right for you

1 out of 5 eggsWas fast including its death

Pros: Was very fast when it worked.

Cons: Died about two months after receiving it. It will not boot up - stays on the initial Lenovo boot screen forever. Attemtping to contact customer service to see about warranty work.
