Asus Essentio CM1740-04


Best Buy offers an extended warranty program, which gives customers an extra year of protection beyond the one-year warranty of most system manufacturers. There are two plans in this extended warranty program. The standard plan ($119.99) covers the...

Big 1TB hard drive. USB 3.0 ports on board. AMD Llano APU provides DirectX 11 and graphics support for games. Plenty of expansion room. Keyboard and mouse included. No bloatware

No Wi-Fi. Video encoding and Photoshop multimedia results were slower than Intel competition

The Asus Essentio CM1740-04 is a great entry-level desktop, and even though its AMD Llano APU may be slower than its Intel-equipped competitors in day-to-day productivity tasks, it has an edge on the gaming grid that Intel's integrated graphics just...

Had to exchange it after 4 days.


Well, once I finally received the pc (UPS really gave me the run-around...) it ran well for the first 3 days. Then on the fourth day it would not start up properly. It ran a self-repair for over 2 hours, which failed. Then, it would not let me refresh...

This review is not reflecting the product so much, though I am anxious for Christmas to arrive, the Service. My wife ordered this for my gift, it was under $300, free four to nine day shipping, it arrived in TWO days. That's just great service and I...

Don't buy ASUS computer


I won't buy anything from ASUS any more

The price is cheap

1. Computer is very low quality. The new ASUS computer we bought died within two weeks ; 2. Repair service is slow and bad. We shipped our soon-died ASUS computer back to the repair center on Oct. 5, 2012. one week later when I call for status, they...

really nice


i got a Asus HD Radeon 6670 for it, which lets me play games like starcraft 2 at max quality at 1080p at around 30fps

works very well for a cheap priced desktop

there's a front fan slot, but the plastic cover doesn't have the vent for it, so you can't use the fan to cool the desktop

I love Asus


Computer operates very fast for the price. A good bargain

Came full of faults. Tech support did not want to work on the device but finally fixed some of the problems. Basically, If you buy any pc on here, consider it AS/IS

Bang for the Buck


Even though it has a bunch of Asus preloaded software/utilities, it is not preloaded with a bunch of useless third party junk. It does have an antivirus trial installed, but I do not really find that to be a fault. It is important for there to be AV on...

A great value for the price vs. performance. Set up was simple and smooth. Looks nice and shiny

Has a lot of Asus utilities that are preinstalled and are not really necessary. After removing these you'll see a lot better performance
