Great Machine, but a little small?


I have had this running as a server/torrent box for 3-4 weeks...server 2003. Not a problem with it so far. It not a speed demon by any stretch of the imagination but that is not what I bought it for. The case is a little restrictive. I have a load of...

Low power consumption, very quiet

Very restrictive case

Nice Little System


Compact, low cost, lots of connectors for expansion. I use 2 of these to run Linux file servers and do backups. Have been solid. Can put power supply fan in smart mode and the box is nearly quiet

The CPU is a VIA design which is not a recent x86. Not all recent stock Linux kernels will boot on it. I had good luck with the latest Fedora

good system for the $$


gonna get some more for other customers

all in one pacjkage. Only thing that would have made it better whould have been a Gig of built-in RAM ; good basic PC for a teen or other starter PC catagory user

hard to work on ; tight fit to EVERYTHING ; I'm not 5' 1" at 105 Pounds so I don't fit too well inside these small form factor PC chasis

Web Server


I needed a web server and had no budget for one - but I have a whole bunch of PC2100 x 256MB, and a stack of 40GB IDE's not to mention a huge pile of cd drives. Installed W2k server w/IIS 5.0. Now the students at my school have there own "MySpace". For...

None for what I'm using it for

buy it only if you need a NAS


It is probably good for a NAS. It consumes relatively little power, but not as little as some of the reviewers claim. My machine draws 43 watts when idle and 50 watts when loaded. Also, the fan speed can be adjusted with some third-party program

very slow, slower than my old dell PII 350mhz machine. Disabling the on-board audio made no difference. Q-fan not useful at all. Installation uses the screwdriver a lot. Asus modified the system but did not update the manual, which is confusing. Also,...

ASUS Terminator T1-C3 VIA C3 800MHz On-board Intel Socket 370 VIA CLE266 VIA UniChrome 2D/3D Barebone


I have your basic A+ background and needed to replace my wife's blown Socket A system. She never really did much other than surf and email so I felt this new box should do it. The booklet is clear and simple. I installed the old sound card, memory,...

No floppy option but hey, who uses them any more

Inexpensive low-power desktop/file server


I have this unit running Windows Home Server (based off Server 2003 kernel), and it has more than enough processing power to act as a file and backup server.

This machine has a truly compact design with a small power footprint. Provides support for 4 IDE and 2 SATA drives, plus 4 USB (2 front and 2 back) for external drives and devices

Support for only 2GB RAM, 10245x768 display resolution via the VGA port from the VIA UniChrome chipset. Photo gallery shows 2 expansion slots on the back of the case, but only one PCI slot on the motherboard -- this is slightly misleading

An excellent machine


Run Ubuntu 7.10 out of the box. Quiet. May disconnect case fan, as it does not seem to need it. Simple, with great bang for the buck

Make it a black case. Smaller case would be nice too, as most people will not put four drives in this baby. Make it so that you don't need mods to get an extra HDD in there (just a simple extra hole or two for screws would do it). May buy another just...

Build your hone server in 15 minutes


I didn't want to spend lots of money or learn some technical mambo jumbo to do build a server. I also didn't want to use windows for my server. I have enough trouble keeping my XP from crashing everyday. This PC and the EZblue software server is what I...

I built my server using this PC and a software package called ezblue business server. All I needed is to add a 512mb and 250gb drive. I also added a CD drive. So for about $300 total software and hardware I built my server which it would have cost me...

No CD drive, space for only two hard drives. you need a spacer to mount the second drive. newegg has it. I had to pay $12 for the CD drive and 10 for the spacer ; I think they should included the CD Drive
