Consumer review by:

"Great multimedia system for designers"

 

When I started taking Multimedia Design Class... 

This system has a robust set of resources that allow website and application development on every level. Overall, it's extremely fast, versatile and feature rich

The system that I received was missing the Antenna that was suppose to come with it. Customer Service was not that helpful so I purchased the antenna myself. Always contact the vender to confirm everything that you expect with your order

Consumer review by:

The best inexpensive desktop I could find.

 

I would buy it again. BTW, if you search you can find the Asus refurbished for great prices.

I very much like the compact case. Inside it seems well designed and the cables are neatly routed. The hdmi output is outstanding on my 22" lcd monitor. The 6 Gb ram and large hard drive really perform well. Factory sound is fine

The lack of any decent documentation is a bad defect. There's not even a motherboard graphic. Finding support at the Asus site is difficult and it's not very helpful if you do find it

Decent computer with TERRIBLE customer service.

 

This computer is not so bad other than the Power button which broke and forces me to turn it on by opening the case ad reaching in to toggle a wire, as well as a very weak CD drive bay door.

Decent-performing system

Free Windows7 upgrade is a scam, website doesn't work, customer service by phone kept me on the line (long-distance call) about 15 minutes before I hung up in frustration. If you buy this computer, expect NO customer support. Flimsy exterior

Asus Essentio CM5570-AP003

 

When I started taking Multimedia Design Classes, I quickly realized that my old system didn't have the processing power, RAM or other system resources necessary to effectively run Adobe CS4 software like Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Bridge, etc.....

Best choice desktop you can find

 

I am a computer engineer with 10 year experiences. If you stay in IT industry, you should know the ASUS is very famous international computer company, actually, every 3 PCs in worldwide, you can find 1 motherboard are made by ASUS. They even design and...

G43 chipset, ASUS EPU technology for power saving, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, elegant appearance, compact design

so far i can't find any cons

Consumer review by:

Outstanding for the cost/performance

 

I got this desktop few days ago. I am glad that make a good choice.

6G DDR II 800, 640GB HDD with 7200 RPM, HDMI / DV I / D-sub ports, 802.11b/g/n Wireless lan, the graphic performance

nothing found now

Asus Essentio CM5570-AP003

 

This was not my first choice for a computer, but due to a constricting budget and time restraints. I decided on this computer. Mainly for the upgradeable memory. I use photoshop, lightroom, and other photo enhancing tools simultaneously. I am able to...

Upgradeable memory to 16GB of RAM. Fast enough for multiple programs to be working at the same time. Large space, easy to expand in the interior

A little loud, but it is not a big deal. Slower when installing software. Larger tower

Consumer review by:

Good Value, caps replaced after 4 years

 

Really good for the money

After four years, I started getting errors related to the bios not finding the hard drive. I saw that some of the 820mfd 6.3v electrolytic capacitors had swollen tops. The reviews here confirmed that the caps were the likely suspect. $5 worth of...
