Asus Republic of Gamers G20 (G20AJ-US009S)

 

The Asus Republic of Gamers G20 is a small-form-factor gaming PC with enthusiast-level components and good performance at a moderate price. However, some usability issues crop up when convention is sacrificed in the name of innovation and design.

Compact chassis. Interesting styling. Solid-state hybrid drive. Quiet fans. Good gaming performance.

Needs two power plugs. External power supplies. Difficult to open case and work with internal components. Very limited internal expansion. Eco Energy mode setup is overly complicated.

The Asus Republic of Gamers G20 offers an innovative design concept, but it may be too outré for its own good. The styling is eye-catching, but finding two power plugs just for the PC is a lot to ask of gamers. The Eco Energy mode requires a lot of...

I will update when I receive my replacement desktop.

When I get one that isn't a lemon maybe I can list pros.

Right out of the box and the system can not detect the Nvidia GPU and GeForce software. Now I have to go through the hassle of a return and hoping that the replacement isn't a lemon as well...

Easy to set up, very quiet

 

Other than my video card issues, it has been a great computer

Compact design, stylish plenty of ports

I have had 3 months and video card keeps shutting down. drivers are always updated but keeps shutting down or going all wonky. There is no consistant triggers that make it fail. I'm at a loss of what to do next beside replace video card.

Good at First then....

 

I would not recommend this product to ANYONE. buy at your own risk, there are many other good pre-built rigs out there.

Good for the first couple of months.

- had problems with the video card after 6 months, started working again for another 7 months but now every game I play I get some type of error, if its not one thing its another. I fix the problems myself as time goes on but building your own PC could...

Runs Dark Souls III at almost highest settings, 1920x1080 at a constant ~50 fps. Framerate drops pretty bad due to lighting graphics and sometimes crashes, but that has to do with the game and not the PC. Runs Dota flawlessly at max Runs Dead Island at...

I ADVISE YOU READ THE REVIEWS AS I DID NOT THOROUGHLY and strongly recommend you steer clear of this company so you do not suffer the disappointment as myself and so many others

cool looking machine.

This computer and the company selling it is junk. I bought this primarily to use as a work computer with occasional gaming. Gaming was nothing special and for a gaming computer it had a surprisingly hard time handling the demands for civilization V. I...
