Asus Essentio CM5671-05

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2010 retail laptop and desktop back-to-school roundup , covering specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Ample storage space; HDMI and optical audio ports let you connect it seamlessly to an HDTV; updated design with easy access to USB ports and media card reader.

Slow multithreaded performance; lacks Wi-Fi; competing systems offer more horsepower for less.

Its newly designed tower, HDMI port, and generous hard-drive capacity aren't enough to make the Asus Essentio CM5671-05 stand out next to the HP Pavilion p6510y, a similarly priced system with a faster quad-core processor and built-in Wi-Fi. The Asus...

No WIFI sucks. Basically 4 home bus., email and doc's

 

Seems to be functional, just need to get a monitor compatible with it! We like the computer. It lacks wi fi but for small-business functions it is fine.

large storage capacity. works great We don't game or edit videos so no issues with that

We have gone through 2 monitors so far and tried to hook up a 3rd (dinosaur from the basement) but it wont work. Probably a bad monitor anyway. But it seems it must have eaten up the other monitors.One was Gateway lg. screen & one about 20 years old

"Hard drive crashed after 1 year and 12 days."

 

Hard drive crashed after 1 year and 12 days. Customer service refuses to cover cost even though its 12 days out of warranty. Horrible experience. I will never buy a PC again. This is the second time I've been a couple days out of warranty and computer...

It doesn't deserve and Pros

Hard Drive crashed and burned. Unrecoverable. Customer service. Warranty rules.

Asus Essentio CM5671-05

 

This is my first Asus machine so time will tell how reliable it is. I have had good experience with it so far.

It was easy to set up. It is plenty fast for basic home use. I have had no problems with it in 4 months since purchase. It is very reasonably priced compared with other brands

The on-off switch is unreliable and tricky to operate. The front of the case has a cheap plastic look and feel. The keyboard has some design issues such as a large "caps lock" key that gets in the way

"Great system at a great price!"

 

I have had no problems with this system in the two weeks I've owned it. I was up and running within an hour or so of getting home with it.

Great performance at a great price.

It was only available at Best Buy, with their usual push to add on stuff such as installation and antivirus software.
