When they sent it back, they again sent it to the wrong address.
I had a very good experience with a Lenovo G570 I purchased earlier for another employee and it gave me good expectations for this unit.
Dan Ketchpel
I always use an external sound card and monitors for my audio, anyway, so it's not a huge issue for me.

Verified Purchase
I researched for some time which workstation class 15" laptop could replace my desktop as a portable workstation. After looking at Dells, Sangar, Toshiba, etc. I chose the Lenovo W530. I had a very good experience with a Lenovo G570 I purchased earlier for another employee and it gave me good expectations for this unit. The price and feature ratio on the W530 was very hard to beat. I really wanted the Nvidia Quadro 2K card for CAD work and few offered it or something similar as most are focused on gaming. I'm not gamer, I wanted this for my work/home computer as 75% of my work entails CAD/CAM along with IT support.

The one feature I REALLY wish it had was a 10 keypad and the Ctrl & Fn keys reversed in position. The G570 has a 10 key in a nice chicklet style keyboard with the Ctrl & Fn keys in the correct position. Why Lenovo can't give this keyboard style in a high end laptop is beyond me. At least the included keyboard is very nice to type on, except for occasionally hitting the little red navigation nub above the B key. I could get along without that nav button just fine. It works, but I don't make great use of it and it interferes with typing more than it helps with navigation. Luckily I mostly use the unit with a USB full sized keyboard and mouse.

The other aspect of the W530 I am not very fond of is the Intel LAN/WiFi cards. This is for 2 reasons. First, I have found the Intel WiFi cards to be the least compatible with routers of all the WiFi cards I've used in laptops. I have had the same experience with Sony VAIO laptops using the Centrino cards, they are very finicky to connect. I had to reconfigure my FiOS router at home to get it to connect and most of the time you need to turn off the Ivp6 feature in the card settings or it won't connect.

I bought a W530 with a Pantone color callibrator from Lenovo Direct, and went through an awful experience with Lenovo's customer service department. The color callibrator in my machine didn't work, right out of the box. I've used Lenovo laptops exclusively for the last ten years, and have really enjoyed them. I've had everything from the 12 inch mini to the 15.6 workstation. They've been fast, tough, and reliable. But of the eight Lenovo laptops I've bought for myself and my family, I've had two that have been defective right out of the box, and my son received a lemon, too. Each time, we've been run through the time-consuming and frustrating process of working through Lenovo customer service to get a replacement. Long waits on hold, shut down, reboot, retest, finally send the machine into engineering, etc. This last time with the W530, almost six weeks passed between the time I first called Lenovo and the time I received a replacement computer that worked. My replacement W530 is humming along fine, and it is clearly the fastest, most powerful computer I've ever owned. The callibrated, high resolution screen is fabulous. It's been a month and it hasn't crashed or even hiccuped once. The machine I now have is a five star, but my experience with Lenovo support and the sketchy three out of eight lemon rate makes me downgrade to a three star at best, and I have to wonder how many lemons Lenovo lets out. I tried posting a review describing my unpleasant experience on Lenovo Direct, and .... big surprise, it isn't posted. So I'm posting it here at good old Amazon to let you all know. I think my new W530 is a terrific machine, but I sure have received a lot of lemons.

This is an interesting product with useful features, from the ability to use expresscards to add connectivity and functionality to a lovely LCD screen. Review the features list carefully, and proceed if you need those features and can't find them elsewhere (expresscard slots, for instance, are increasingly hard to find).

I was excited to get my new ThinkPad W530, but it was nonfunctional out of the box--something wrong with the communications sequence, from the motherboard to the antenna which makes any kind of internet connection not an option. Lenovo tech support had me reload the OS, replace the hard drive, re-reload the OS (from media this time), use an ethernet connection (luckily I have one!) to run the dreaded Windows updates, run hardware diagnostics, and more. All to no effect. A decent company (and you know they're out there!) would have had me ship them the machine for repair and shipped a new one for me the same day and fixed up the defective one for sale later on.

A month later, I'm finally in the queue for a repair which will take a week or so. I have to deal with the repair process, evaluate the repaired machine, and had to argue with staff to ensure that I was still eligible to return the thing if I don't like the way it works when I get it back.

Lenovo Customer Support, particularly on the sales side, is grossly inefficient. None of the people you talk to when calling them with issues has real authority to help you. This can be very frustrating if you are an individual or a small business.
