PC Crashed and does not come with any recovery media or W 10 license#. Windows 10 requires a disk to boot up.


All seemed great when I first set it up...

All seemed great when I first set it up but it then crashed and went into recovery and never came back up. There was no recovery media and it also was missing the Windows 10 sticker with license# that is usually placed on the tower making it impossible...

Great computer, would give a 5 but one small thing that annoys me.


Overall a great PC. It is fast, quiet, and runs exceptionally well for any game I throw at it. Will be looking to upgrade the graphics card, as it is not top of the line, but does well for being included (This is for the R9 370 card). Again, only...

This computer comes ready to go out of the box with any game I tried with it. I run most of my games such as League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, Civ 5, on ultra settings with no hiccups. Can run Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 on ultra,...

My biggest problem with the computer is the hard drive comes divided into two partitions. This is normal usually for a computer, but the C drive is listed as the Recovery portion of the computer while the D drive is listed as Data:, aka the main drive....

Total piece of garbage


I've used this computer less than 24 hours and I'm returning this junk. I love ASUS but this is a total piece of junk.

Honestly I upgraded from an AMD core 2 quad and this machine doesn't impress me. I thought it would be substantially faster and it's really not.

Hard drive is partitioned, why? I don't know. But Windows is on this tiny little partition so transferring over my picture, music and documents failed because even though I paid for 2T, I don't get to use it all. It's also very glitchy, I'm not sure if...

For the price on Newegg you can't beat it.


Owed two Asus PCs great luck with both and never a issue. If you add a SSD you'll be amazed at the speed.

Fast, quiet, the right price and you can't beat the Asus motherboard.

Comnputer comes ready to go out of the box.


Fast and reliable so far. Comes with Microsoft Office already installed.

Hard drive formatted into two parts, so only less than 200 G available for programs. No activation code for Microsoft Office/Home and Student, so can't use it. Newegg hasn't responded after 3 weeks. No internal speakers, so need external speakers to...

Major upgrade for us


Would liked to have a second bay for another DVD drive.

Runs very quite, system is fast, Windows 10 seems good so far. I'm not a gamer so for music, videos, photos & emails it works for me. The price was $750 shipped, which was the most computer I could get for the money. Had a 7 year old HP with Vista that...

Having to learn a new windows operating system and move all my files. The key board is very light weight and the mouse is small. Used some I had on hand.

Very good product.


Easy way to set up and very fast

Consumer review (

Solid box, but regret buying due to lack of PCI slot expansion


I misinterpreted the specs when it says Available/Total and shows 1 PCI-E slot and 1 Mini PCI-E slot. Both slots are populated with video and wireless card. No other expansion slots available. For now I'm good, but hopefully I don't regret this in the...

Stylish case, well built. I've had great luck with ASUS routers and this looks to be a solid machine with good internals. Great deal for an i7 with good video card and Windows pre-installed.

Lack of PCI slot expansion. You'll want an SSD as well that has to be purchased seperately.

Consumer review (

Worked fine for 2 days, RMA'd for HD fail: taken more than 3 weeks


When it was working, my son was giving it quite a workout with his games. I wish I had contacted Newegg to avoid dealing with ASUS for replacement, I'd probably have had it back 2-3 weeks ago.

Fast system for the price, if it's working. Can't say more really, since I've only been able to use it for 2 days of the month I've owned it.

RMA service is extremely slow, requires the entire system be sent in (for a hard drive failure). Bought before thanksgiving, got a warning from the SMART system that the hard drive was about to fail on day 2 or ownership. Started the RMA process on Nov...
