Good: Boots quickly, 4 USB ports, 4.5 hour battery life
Bad: System hangs up upon opening pop-up windows; keypad initially did not work
Comment: Customer service is bad to non-existent. I am returning the unit due to lack of support and bugs in the system listed above.
Good: Style, boot-up speed
Bad: WiFi (WLAN takes ages to make internet accessible after a quick connection to the router)
Comment: Nice style, though I keep try to open it from the wrong side (hinge side) because it has no feel for the opening edge to geab on.
The WLAN module is terrible!!! I had it shipped in after 10 days of ownership, but still it's crap! It connects to my router i seconds, but needs minutes to then let me connect through to the internet.
Good: its design
Bad: every thing
Comment: I'm a Lenovo costumer I use to but any think that has Lenovo logo and when I first saw this laptop on you tube and the way they were advertising it, I though to my self this is the one, but after getting it I really wished that I can return it back but I cant :(.
Its very slow laptop and the it has the worst internet ever, there's something wrong with the connection every time !!. I really wish Lenovo company can help us with this trouble I think they should call back all the U410 laptops users and Compensation them all and me as well :(..
Bad: Wireless connectivity
Comment: If you check on Amazon customers reviews about this ultra book there is some sort of problem with network adaptor- very poor connectivity with internet.
the broadcom wireless adapter has a serious flaw, although quick to connect to the internet the speeds are so slow as to make the machine almost useless.
wifi disconnects and doesnot connect untill you remove - when you connect a USB 3.0 WD portable HD in USB 3.0 port.
I think Lenovo has to call back all the U410 laptops and fix them all - its their reputation thats getting spoiled .
The first click on the track pad revealed a rattle and what sounds like a loose keyboard or something under the keyboard that is not secured properly.
