Robust & Spacious Design

 

I use this as a video entertainment device. The 433/867 wireless lan link(s) is necessary for streaming uncompressed Fios signals. I have a 6 tuner Ceton cable card device, and it requires Windows Mediacenter (win7 or win8). With wireless AC, I'm able...

wireless AC ; can accommodate full size (3.5") hdd ; small footprint, classy appearance ; multiple USB 2 & 3 options ; latest bluetooth (4.0) ; dual screen ; was very impressed with the seemingly spacious design and ease of access both getting into the...

pricey because you need to add memory, primary storage device and operating system. however, it's a lot more bang for your buck than a comparably equipped Intel NUC, and compares favorably to Gigabyte in reliability/quality control

DOA

 

I am understanding the comments about how it would be a good little computer IF it worked. Who the hell ships dead equipment?

Unknown, arrived DOA ; Turn it on and am greeted by ; the current bios settings do not fully support the boot device

The fact that it arrived DOA

Best Impulse Buy Ever

 

So glad I didn't skimp when picking an HTPC. This little thing is the best. I haven't tested out its gaming capabilities, but it was only purchased for HD video streaming and Blu-Ray playback. Can't wait to upgrade it with a nice-sized SSD.

Beautiful design ; Ease of setup ; Lots of I/O options ; 6 months of flawless operation

Good HTPC

 

Faster than the Celeron version of vivopc. Just put the 8gb RAM, threw a Samsung 256gb SSD, and installed windows 7 on it. Downloaded all the softwares from ASUS website and was good to go. Built in speakers are also pretty decent

None so far

A neat computer to hide behind a tv

 

This computer works great on our small tv in the kitchen. It mounts to the back of the tv and is hidden. I'm not a huge fan of Windows 8 but the price for this package deal was too good to pass up. The computer seems to not wake up from sleep properly...
