Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreasonably large and heavy I am looking for another charger for my Lenovo W530 because this one is almost 1/3 the size and 1/2 the weight of my laptop. I've never seen a laptop charger this big. This charger pretty much makes the W530 a desktop computer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A brick, not for someone who travels While I can understand that this laptop requires a lot of power there should be a slower charging alternative for those of us who travel often, this thing is a burden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lenovo E545 I love my Lenovo. It is light weight and easy to use. It is user friendly. I purchased it from the Lenovo web site. I had checked other laptops but after speaking to my Pastor, she said she thought I wouldn't go wrong with the Lenovo; that is what she uses for work. I am truly glad that I purchased this computer. I have recommended it to friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5lb AC Brick an expensive and unique afterthought The adapter is heavy, as in not very portable.The adapter connector is not compatible with the "round" style of legacy units, if not just to force you to use the "new" style. Durability is reduced- which is a recurring theme with the new Lenovo units. Expensive and unique, but wanting for alternatives.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge! This thing is HUGE. I don't travel often but when I do my distain for this monstrosity deepens. At meetings everyone else pulls out their svelte AC adaptors and then guffaws when I hoist out this out of my laptop bag. I'm on the site looking for anything to replace it but, alas, I've come to understand there is nothing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Are you kidding? Lenovo inexplicably changed the adapter head from round to square for the latest version of this workstation (the W540), meaning the older (round) version will be more difficult to acquire. Because (as you can see from the reviews) these adapters are very unreliable, this will force users to shell out over $100 for a spare, unless they want their workstation to become entirely unusable. Great support Lenovo!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap knock-off? The original seems to work fine; ordered a second from a non-Lenovo website; product looks similar but has a tiny paper seal across the seam with Asian lettering; AND it doesn't work; AND the company has a 'Returns' section on its website lacking any actual contact information; so I'm wondering if the other reviews here citing product failure indicate Lenovo (unknowingly?) is also selling bogus adapters; I hope not cuz I just ordered a 3rd directly from Lenovo.com in hopes of getting one in working order, or that can be returned.
