ASUS Pundit P1-P5945G

 

ASUS' Pundit P1-P5945G is a barebones PC that can be configured to a customer's liking. The system itself comes fitted with a motherboard, a CPU heat ...

Small form factor, quiet operation

Graphics can't be upgraded, design is a little awkward

The design could be improved, but for businesses, or home users looking for a small form-factor PC, the Pundit is worth considering.

Near faultless design at an easily affordable price: a fantastic basis for a media centre PC

outstanding budget machine

 

use the asus bios update utility that comes on the drivers disk. Don't try and update it from the web. I always got the server is full error so I just manually went to Asus' website and downloaded the most up to date bios rom, opened up the update...

I've built 4 machines with this barebones system and all perform flawelessly. My most recent I completed a few days ago has an E4500 C2D cpu, a pair of corsair gig sticks of ram, a 500 gig western digital SATA drive and a samsung dvd burner. Simple,...

Voltage switch on back of power supply is NEVER set to 115v so you need to change that. Thankfully, they put an idiot sticker over the power plug outlet telling you to do this. also, as of this most recent build, though the system still functions...

Great little box

 

I'm very happy with the case. It was very easy to install my components into it. Ventilation is great. No worries about overheating. I will say the thermal paste that comes with it is junk. Be sure to order some arctic silver with the case.

Small form factor. Straight forward design. Simple and elegant. Easy install of components. Intelligent layout

It's a bit heavier than I would have thought, but that could also be a pro depending how you plan to use it. I don't like the exposed metal bottom where the stand attaches. If you're going to lay it horizontally instead of standing it on the stand...

Great little box

 

Built one for my daughter for college. Set up with a TV tuner card and XP media center. No cutting class to watch that favorite tv show (I hope). It takes full height pci cards, but long ones are a no-no. It's REALLY small, folks. Think one optical...

I have the blue version, but other than color it's the same. This is perfect for most who want a small pc. Very solid construction. Very quiet and cool running. The DVI output works fine on mine

No TV output, and only one SATA port. Needed a bios flash for processor, but did boot into windows

Its going back

 

I may have gotten a bum MB too. Vista would boot and work for a while but it would randomly crash and reboot for no reason. Seems to be related to video but I am not sure.

Nice size and quiet.

The ""full size"" PCI slots will not fit a ""full size"" PCI card. The plates fit but if the board is full size they will not fit in the case (they hit the bottom).

Great little Box

 

Very usable for basic display set ups, Built in network card and Video Card fit my needs, along with small size and SATA 3.0 make for quick Moving display boards on 50" Plasmas.

Very simple set up, no issues with 4 units. Have used 7 of them so far for customers and am very happy. Small footprint. Easy to configure.

Lack of space for 2nd hardrive inside, PCI riser card in one unit was a little touchy.

Excellent SFF case

 

Bought two of these for my 80 year old parents. They are quiet and take up little desk space. The 2 PCI's are used up by a Hauppage PVR150 and ZONET Wireless. I have them connected to 32" LCD's so they can watch TV and surf at the same time. Allows...

Small, Quiet and everything you need for a basic HTPC box on additional TV's or for use as a basic computer. Nvidia 6150 video with DVI

Limited drive space (one) so make sure you get the size you'll need for later. Pick a quiet DVD Drive! That's the only thing I hear in the case. Only 2 PCI slots

Consumer review by:

great htpc box, tiny and out of the way

 

Losing one of the PCI slots for a PCI-E would have been nice, but since both slots stem from one PCI slot on a riser card, I guess that wouldn't be too feasable except with a proprietary riser card. The design is such that it looks best vertically; you...

Small; quiet; everything needed is bundled, including hs/fan, ide and sata cables; assembly comes apart very cleanly and easily. Software drivers easy to setup, practically the same as the Asus mATX 939 board

I needed more usb ports for my usb tv tuner, usb MCE ir receiver, usb wifi, and usb hd tv tuner; so I threw in a PCI usb card in there. When initially started, CPU fan will blast like a hair dryer for 2 seconds before Q-Fan kicks in. Worst thing: mine...
