Great system, terrible os


Windows comes with numlock on, so be sure to turn it off before you start trying to use the keyboard. All in all it's a great unit itself, but I feel the unit should have at least had functional drivers out of the box if it's going to come with an OS...

If you put a new OS on it, or after you've fixed what I listed below it's great. Plays back HD content no problem, can even play some newer games on medium settings decently. Can multitask on smaller programs pretty decently as well, but it can slow...

The OS out of the box is terrible. I even tried a system restore from the restore partition to be sure and ended up with exactly the same issues. Theres a ton of bloatware (most of it Windows related) that autoruns and seriously bogs down the system. I...

Dead after 12 hours


If you're looking to use this as a HTPC then look for the NVIDIA ION version of this box. The Radeon card in this box is great but I don't think it can handle full HD video at a high resolution (and I'm not sure about the ION version either, so do your...

Great little system, the coolest thing is that it comes with a mount for the back of your flat screen monitor and you never have to see it! Fantastic for my grandfather-in-law who just needs a computer for email and word processing. It'd be great for...

It died after two weeks so I had to send in an RMA to ASUS because I had already sent the UPC in for the rebate (so I couldn't just return it to Newegg, otherwise I would have). Thankfully they've accepted my RMA request and I'm sending it in tomorrow....

Great for it's purpose


Paired this system with a NewEgg Hanns-G 20" LCD monitor with HDMI, DVI and VGA-in (got it on sale) and this system really is a blast to have. Hooked it all up via HDMI, mounted the system to the back, and we have a very simple, eye-catching PC that we...

I've done a lot of research into "nettop" pc's, and made the leap into buying one when we remodeled our kitchen, and found ourselves wanting to include a dedicated kitchen PC. The design on this box, which allows you to mount the entire rig to the back...

Would have liked to have Windows 7, or XP Pro on it, but for the uses here, XP home will work fine

Not Quite as Advertised


Doubting I'll buy anything from ASUS again anytime soon as they appear to have dramatically lowered their standards, and won't be recommending them for my many friends and family in the market for netbooks/tops.

Small, Attractive

Can't even play SD stream/dvd decently ; Bought this for streaming Netflix and playing DVDs, and it can barely handle these tasks. CPU runs at 80%+ with just one IE session running a Netflix movie, lots of stuttering. Same issue with DVDs using...

Don't buy it for HD streaming


inexpensive, quite, low power, good value if you're not interested in HD

This device can't keep up with HD streaming. HULU (Flash 10.x) is completely unacceptable at any resolution. Netflix (Silverlight) is much better, even at 720p. The performance at 1080p is unacceptable. I've tried both IE 8 and Firefox... latest...

great first nettop


Graphics can handle Hi-def video ; HDMI port to connect to my 32' flat screen TV. The main reason I purchased this nettop was the affordable price and because it has all of the features I need. Light-weight and a nice stand that doesn't take up much...

no CD/DVD drive, not that I need one but if you do you will need a USB CD/DVD drive

Fantastic for what it is.


For the price, this is a great computer. Just know what it's mean for, and you should be happy with it.

Got this for my nephew. Excellent for general web surfing, skype, im's, emails, and light computer use. Small, compact, doesn't suck up much power, and reasonably quick. Works great. No problems so far. And it's inexpensive enough that you won't lose...

Don't expect it to run any process intensive programs. Struggles a bit on HD video. If you seriously want something more powerful, you're looking at the wrong place

Pretty good for its size and purpose


for a nettop, this is a very good one surfing the net, watching videos, using office suite is all dandy and fine pretty happy with purchase

almost silent and uses very little power ; super compact, mounts right on my mom's LCD monitor ; wireless keyboard and mouse is a nice bonus ; good graphics card for watching videos even 720p (provided that you have proper codecs installed, i recommend...

doesnt play youtube HD very well but thats not this unit's fault, adobe flash 10.1 isnt out yet, dont want to mess with beta for now ; wish it has an ODD but at this price range, im fine with this and will just get external ODD if it really comes to it...

Nicely made, Slow WIFI


I bought this over similar less expensive models because I wanted to use it for Windows GPU processing and a Proxy server. It included a Radeon 4xxx card and Windows. Turns out I can't run my GPU processing app on a Radeon *Mobility* card. I also...

Dedicated graphics in a net top. Very nice keyboard / mouse. Attractive design. Cool and quiet. Over clockable. Monitor mountable. Reasonable pricing. Rebate when I bought it

Wireless "N" tops out at 65mbps even with updated driver and BIOS. Radeon 4xxx graphics card is a *Mobility* series card, not a full Radeon. Costs nearly the same as a similar spec netbook with a monitor and battery. Max 2GB RAM single channel only....

Small size, small performance


I bought this as a test terminal for a barcode driven workorder management system and it works just fine in this single simple-as-a-stone-axe application. But one can buy a lot more horsepower for very little more money.

Small, self contained - I have it mounted on the back of a Samsung monitor. CAT5 and wireless built in. 4 USBs. Decent video

Slow. Painfully slow. Abysmally slow, at least when using the internal wireless internet connection
