Asus Eee Box EB1012 review


On the outside, Asus's new Eee Box looks very similar to previous models, the most recent being the B204.

Small, quiet and powerful enough for HD movies and Windows 7, with fast wireless networking.

EeeBox PC EB1012 - Pocket format High Definition entertainment


Have you been looking for a media centre that does not take up too much space, but still want a computer that can provide the full array of entertainment including Full HD (1080p)? Do you require a computer that does not use too much power? If yes,...

Size ; Silent ; ION GPU ; Draft-N Wireless ; Discreet design ; Keyboard and mouse included ; Price

Too many advertisements and special offers

Considering its low power consumption, the EeeBox PC EB1012 delivers a very high performance. The computer practically begs to be used as a media centre, a function it easily lives up to. It is completely silent, making it even more attractive in that...

Arrived DOA


None, arrived unable to boot

Listing did NOT say that it shipped without a drive and memory. Never-the-less, after adding a drive and memory the system does not boot. There is absolutely NO display output from the system. Although listed as refurbished, the system that was sent to...

Does not state no drive and no memory


Ran just fine when I scaveneged parts from another Asus Nettop box.


I have bought other refurbished ASUS Nettop boxes and they have come in the model configuration including memory and drive. This one has no drive and no memory and this is not properly spelled out in the description. Very bad practice. Shame on you...

Works great


The Computer runs smoothly, Pretty fast, Windows 7, low price

The computer wouldn't turn on properly until I had to open it up and found that one of the ports that connected the power supply to the motherboard wasn't working properly. I simply plugged the power supply into another port and problem solved

Good, small, low cost


Very small form factor, good functional basic computer for light duty

The ASUS bloatware included cost me several hours of diagnosing a conflict with some Windows software (Microchip PicKit3) that just didn't work on this computer (but worked on many others) until I uninstalled the ASUS software. Do yourself a favor and...

Used as media player


I installed openELEC on this machine, using some memory I already had and a 4GB flash drive as the only storage ; Plays movies and streaming media quite well over wired Ethernet

getting the case open to install memory requires some care and patience

Small enough to be placed practically anywhere. Reliable and fast enough for basic workstation use

Could do without all the extra Asus software
