Asus Essentio CM6870

 

The Asus Essentio CM6870 is a great entry-level gaming desktop whose value is underscored by the performance it delivers in all but the most graphically intensive games.

Robust CPU/GPU combination. Multiple USB 3.0 ports. Spacious dual-drive setup. Solid expansion. HDMI video output. Integrated Wi-Fi. Excellent value.

Some bloatware. Not so great in higher quality gaming settings.

Asus Essentio CM6870 review

 

For its first big Ivy Bridge desktop, Asus has packed a good deal of fun into a system that just squeaks its way into the definition of a “budget� PC. The CM6870 is a fine, general system that performs admirably for most tasks you throw its way....

Epic configuration fail

 

I had first written a 5-star review of this PC a couple weeks after receiving it, because I thought it was actually all that! But it's gotten worse and worse to the point I can easily consider this the worse I''ve spent money on, and really have no...

Worked great...when it worked.

This worked great for the first few months but since, it crashed and crashed and crashed. Soon after a year (and when the warranty is over) it went on a total fritz...reason? The power supply can't support the configuration of this PC's components. Me...

Works like a champ

 

Runs Smooth when working, very fast and not an ounce of problems until

not even a year into my ownership i had a problem with over heating. i sent it back with me having to pay $60 even though within first year warranty and got it back worked fine for a little but just had the same problems. Graphics card or Heat sink...

Buyer Beware with ASUS

 

Outside of this instance and the horrible customer service portion of the company, I have been relatively impressed with ASUS products.

Buying refurbished is always a dice roll. By and large the computer was a great deal and works great, but

one of the components, the Video Card, was DOA. Because it was a component to a refurbished item Newegg was understandably unable to refund without taking the whole tower back. (I have nothing bad to say about Newegg customer service - they have always...

Bad tech support experiences

 

The 4 ASUS teams involved in repairs are not talking to each other. 1. 800 support line: opens the ticket, couldn't make any decisions. you can talk to them all you want, the info just stays in this team. 2. Warranty team: emailed to verify warranty...

Good specs for the price

Tech support - Found the PC only saw 8 GB of 16 GB installed memory on 89th day of receiving the PC, which is 91 days after purchase. (90 days warranty)

Loved it, until it died

 

I know I see a lot of complaints about ASUS support. I personally haven't had a lot of issues with them. I also have two ASUS laptops, monitors, etc. I had to replace a keyboard on the one laptop, and they were very helpful in determining the exact...

Good features, great performance, decent price point. I hooked it up to dual23" ASUS monitors and it so pretty. The thing is crazy fast, tons of space. Played all of my video games at max settings without even breathing hard

1 year and 2 months after getting this PC, it just crashed out of the blue and came back up to a blank screen. Now it won't stay running more than a few minutes, and I have to manually power it off and back up to get it to reboot. I've monitored the...
