Re: New Ideapad 320 really slow?

2017-10-13, 8:27 AM

The link takes you to the speed test for the Lenovo 320 - as you can see, the speed is very patchy and dire at small file sizes.

 

It's even worse at file sizes smaller than 4MB (between 3MB/sec and 5MB/sec in some instances) whereas, for the HP, the slowest speed (1MB file transfer size) is around 15MB/sec and much faster at 2MB, 4MB and beyond.

 

If people want to see the results for file sizes between 1MB and 8192MB, they only have to shout.

 

Do your own tests, though, using ATTO Benchmark (it's free but requires registration) - or your preferred tester.

Run speed tests as I suggest in my last posting - and report back what sort of speeds you are seeing. I'd be delighted if they are significantly different than those I posted; but greatly surprised, too.

Get your money back and buy something different. This seems to be a specific fault on this particular Lenovo model - though I'm hoping someone can find something, anything, that can be changed to fix this issue.

 

Since I made available those speed tests, I've tested perhaps six other computers; some with SSDs, some with hard disks. None of the results from those test got anywhere close to being as bad as the two IdeaPad 320 models that I tested.

I have observed one thing:

 

"Disk activity time" in Task Manager shows 100% constantly. 

 

I notice usually after 30 mins idling, the disk activity time goes back to random. That's when the laptop works normally. However after waking up from sleep, the disk activity time is back to 100% constantly and that's when the laptop slows down. I've tried to contact technical support but the easies thing they did was to run the Hardware Scan.

 

I will be contacting them again on Monday.

 

I agree with Rasheed14.... I really feel like throwing a fit using this brand new laptop. It struggles to do the simplest of task ie, switching to another program

Just purchased this yesterday and can confirm the performance is terrible! Background Windows updates and Microsoft Onedrive Syncing seemed to be the cause for me.. But those are tasks that should run in the background with limited impact.  This Notebook is absolute junk, almost unusable and a complete waste of money.

My viewpoint is that the machine is not fit for sale and you should get your money back BUT...
... Olaf93 messaged me about his problem saying that he took it to a friend who does IT work and he reinstalled Windows 10 and the problem went away (though, in truth, he didn't know precisely what his friend did).

I asked him yesterday to speak to his friend and post here (as much as possible), exactly what his friend did to cure the problem. Hopefully, he'll do that soon. But the fact that the problem may be fixable (if by rather extereme methods) doesn't alter my viewpoint that the machine, as sold, is not fit for purpose.

Hello,

 

I faced the exact same problem with you few weeks ago. After I bought this laptop from lenovo official store and I tried to install an OS (Windows 10 64-bit) by myself, it ran so slow that it drove me crazy. I was about to return this piece of junk back to the store. But I didn't think that will work. Finally I decided to take it to my friend who runs a computer repair business and thankfully my ideapad 320 runs so smooth like a normal computer. I asked him what did he done to my laptop and he said he was just re-installed the Windows and download the newest drivers from each websites (not from lenovo). I hope that helps you!

 

Cheers,

Olaf

I bought mine a week ago and experienced terrible speed. I have no other apps except netflix. This is so frustrating. What's the return policy of this?
