Asus ET2701INKI-B046C

 

If you can forgive the Asus ET2701INKI-B046C a few quirks in its audio setup, you'll find an all-in-one desktop that can compete with systems costing $600 more.

Large, clear screen. HD video. Blu-ray. USB 3.0 and eSATA. Has VGA-in and HDMI-in ports. Nice Price. Speedy 3rd generation quad core processor. Good 3D graphics

Subwoofer must be plugged into side panel with exposed wiring. Audio is low out of box, even at "maximum" volume. Cluttered desktop shortcuts. Confusing sound settings

Asus ET2701 INKI Review: A Multipurpose Media Machine

 

We get lots of functional, pretty all-in-one desktops through the PCWorld Labs, and the ET2701 INKI is Asus's latest entry. This high-definition, 27-inch system, priced at $1299 (as of 7/9/2012), is equipped with one of Intel's newest and fastest...

Fast, Powerful Processor ; Large HD Screen

Too Few USB Ports ; Not a Touch Screen

Asus delivers an affordable all-in-one, usable as a PC, light gaming system or HDTV.

Asus ET2701 INKI-B046C Review

 

Asus takes the price/performance crown in this roundup. The company's ET2701 all-in-one can't match the audacious display built into Dell's XPS One 27 , and it doesn't have a fast SSD to supplement its 2TB hard drive, like the Dell; but many of the...

Gorgeous display, fast components, and an eSATA/USB 2.0 combo port

Cheap, sloppy keyboard; no TV tuner option; no remote

Asus ET2701INTI review

 

With its huge 27in touchscreen, the Asus ET2701INTI is an awe-inspiring all-in-one that looks like it means business. With a price this high we'd expect it to be able to deliver to best performance and compete with a desktop PC.

A powerful all-in-one with a large screen, but you can get higher-resolution screens for similar money

ASUS All-in-One PC ET2701INKI review

 

I love seeing all-in-one desktops with a discrete graphics card, even if it's a midrange mobile one. The ASUS All-in-One PC ET2701INKI uses the Nvidia GeForce GT 640M GPU with a gigabyte of video memory on board. It ran through our Dirt 3 and Crysis 2...

The Asus E2701 INKI is an excellent media machine, especially for such a low list price. You will no doubt get your money's worth in terms of a computer, a good if less-intensive gaming machine, and a high-definition television. If you are a media...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

So far so bad

 

They do not pay for shipment (like Sony or HP) to their facilities. Computer crashed twice for 2 different reasons. They blame Windows 8 OEM version I upgraded to. Even though I know an operating system will not undo a partition. Windows/Microsoft even...

All in one with big screen. Goes without saying, space saver and virtually no wires

The hardware seems to be faulty. Computer has crashed twice now. ASUS PC customer service is arrogant and super unhelpful; which is very surprising to me because I had nothing but good things to say about the help I received for a tablet. They blame...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very good machine

 

Overall, I'm glad I bought this system. It's MUCH less bulky than the custom gaming systems I've had in the past, and performance is fine for non-twitch gaming.

This is only the second pre-built system I've owned, the other being an ASUS G74-sx laptop. I am both a programmer and an MMO player and this machine does well with both. Plenty of power, beautiful display, good (but not great) sound. I'm running...

I'd like to be able to use a second monitor so that I can have reference books open on one screen while working on the other

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good buy

 

I was discouraged at first by the lack of reviews for this device, but I'm glad I made the leap and gave it a shot. The first thing I did after uninstalling all the Asus-ware was run a Windows System Rating. I was worried that the machine would not do...

Beautiful device. Runs cool. I purchased this machine because I was so tired of disconnecting and packing up my regular PC. Game graphics performance is more than I was hoping for. I was nervous about the system using a mobile graphics architecture,...

It's heavier than you would hope, but not unwieldy. My biggest con with this device is the bloatware that comes on the machine. Asus does a great job with hardware, but the software is as goofy looking as it has always been, and they include several...
