Asus EeeBox EB1501 Review

 

A slot-loading DVD drive sets Asus' EeeBox 1501 apart from the nettop pack, but a high price and spotty HD playback keep it from being the ultimate home theater companion.

Asus Eee Box EB1501 review

 

Nettops like the $475 Asus Eee Box PC EB1501 aren't meant for getting work done. Instead, they promise an end-around to the closed environment of your cable box, opening up your living room to the near-infinite amount of content available via various...

Clean, understated design.

Can't play 1080p QuickTime files smoothly; caught in an uncomfortable pricing middle ground between cheaper Web-enabled Blu-ray players and slightly higher-end slim tower PCs; weak tech support.

We like the looks of Asus' Eee Box EB1501, but it's pricier than Blu-ray players that stream content from the Web, and not as powerful as slightly more expensive slim tower PCs that offer significantly more speed and power. Asus made a decent attempt...

Asus Eee Box EB1501P-B016E

 

The EB1501P-B016E comes with a DVD burner, and a 320GB 5,400rpm hard drive, which is a little small (and slow) for a multimedia system. I'd like to see at least 500GB so it can hold larger video files, even if it doesn't have a TV tuner. I should also...

Compact. Quiet. Wireless everything. USB 3.0 and eSATA. Includes VESA mount

Only 90-day subscription to Trend Micro Anti-virus. Overactive Firewall. Small 320GB hard drive. Some bloatware. No Blu-ray. Card reader only supports SD/MMC. No TV tuner

A compact desktop PC is one of the most convenient ways to get your digital photos, videos, and other entertainment up on the HDTV in your living room. Though slower and somewhat "stripped" compared with rivals, the Asus Eee Box EB1501P-B016E is a...

Asus EeeBox PC EB1501P Review

 

Asus is out to prove that big things really do come in small packages with its EeeBox PC EB1501P. This nettop offers an array of I/O ports as well as a slot-load optical disc drive and the ability to play content from your own media library in Full HD....

Thin design ; Stays cool ; Two USB 3.0 Ports

No Blu-ray drive ; Lackluster gaming performance

Asus set out to prove that you can get impressive performance from a small nettop such as the EeeBox PC EB1501P, particularly in the form of high-definition video output. Thanks to NVIDIA's next generation Ion graphics and dual-core processor, the...

ASUS EeeBox EB1501 Review

 

ASUS made waves a few years ago by creating the netbook category with the first Eee PC.

Small ; Doesn't use much electricity ; Can decode 1080p content

Vampire power ; Stutters on some HD Flash ; Pricey for feature set

In all, the Asus EeeBox EB1501 proved to be a capable little box, though it's still a nettop at its core. The dual-core Atom which powers the box is enough to handle day-to-day office tasks and low-powered computer activities such as web browsing,...

Asus EeeBox PC EB1501

 

Interesting design. Includes HDMI output. Optical drive. Quiet operation.

Ordinary performance. Average keyboard and mouse ruin the style. 1080p video still doesn't work well.

We've yet to be truly bowled over by any nettop PC, and while this one is not the be all and end all of systems, if you yearn for a full keyboard and external monitor presence, it's a fair option.

Asus EeeBox PC EB1501 review

 

It doesn't offer unbeatable performance, but Asus' EeeBox PC EB1501 delivers a slot-loading DVD writer, HDMI and more.

Budgets being what they are, Asus' EeeBox PC EB1501 will be a good choice if you really do need all the extra features that come with the price tag. Even though performance is a little weaker than other compact machines, you simply aren't going to find...

Asus Eeebox PC EB1501

 

THE EEEBOX SERIES is Asus' range of nettops, with the first of these greener, low power alternatives to a desktop PC shipped in mid 2008

Small and compact, Nvidia Ion graphics handles HD media well, greener alternative to a desktop PC

Should have shipped with all the niceties other countries have, such as a remote and VESA mount

They were seen then as a netbook minus a screen, keyboard and optical drive, where now they've undergone some much needed improvements and updating. The modifications in the EB1501 include more processing power, improved graphical capabilities and more...

Time to ditch your laptop? Asus' EeeBox PC EB1501 gets dual-core Atom for small spaces

 

It's impressive to see a dual-core Atom, DVD writer and Nvidia Ion in such a tiny PC, but the price is a touch too high
