The right and wrong


The system its self is nice to use. Quit and fast. Easy setup up. Well rounded desk top system. Easy to get to front panel USB and Sound ports. Like touch top link for cell phone

Will need to get uses to Windows 8 if its your first time using it. The keyboards gray letters are hard to see in low light. Asus utility package would give a 7 its ok. Memory card slots hard to see from sitting in chair

Smoking fast after bloat removed


The price is awesome for such a powerful computer, but whats with all the pre-installed viruses. I spent a couple of hours cleaning out the offending programs, now I cannot believe how fast it is. It is a great computer if you know what to keep and...

I have a laptop touch screen with Win 8, so I am getting used to it. I showed my wife how to use Win 8 and she picked it up no problem. This computer is smoking fast, AFTER the bloatware has been removed. It boots from shutdown in 5 - 10 seconds and...

It took several hours to install updates and then Win 8.1, not a big problem. But afterwords it was SUPER slow and loaded with bloatware and popups. All from the installed software and updates. Otherwise this would be a solid 5 eggs

Not bad for the price


If I had to do it over, I'd buy it again.

Windows 8 isn't too taxing ; Runs most games pretty solid if you don't mind swapping the video card, otherwise expect low settings across the board on new titles ; As a working computer it's perfect

Bloatware is always a problem with computers, this one is no different

Purchased the unit about 6 weeks ago and it is preforming just great, no issues.I wished I had ordered 16 gb of ram instead of the 8 that came with the unit. I also ordered a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse, my preference. Windows 8 is another...

Follow up to my previous review


I've had this second unit for a while now. It fired right up out of the box. I had to contact ASUS for assistance to get rid of the automatic update program, which will annoyingly pester you every time the unit wakes up. Some of the other applications...

I really like it's performance. It's a great deal for price. Windows 8 takes a little getting used to but once you get past the basic your on your way.

Good value for PC


Arrived as ordered. Worked out of the box. Very quiet, good quality, just takes time to get used to Windows 8. No start button, difficult at first to locate programs, files, or even to shut off computer. I did not locate an orientation which would have...

ASUS CM1745-US006S


Assuming nothing breaks, this computer should be powerful enough to last a number of years.

Very quiet during general use, good sale price for an A10-5700, rear USB 3

Windows 8? I bought this PC for my mother and she's pretty confused by the changes

Great replacement for my old desk top


The main reason I purchased this desktop was that it had Windows 7. I like that it has a 2 USB ports in the front plus the CD/DVD and camera card slots. I already have Microsoft Office, so that was not an issue. It was simple to set up and I am looking...

This desktop is smaller, faster and soooo quiet

Nothing at this time
