Disappointed despite the rave reviews

Barbara T., Newegg
21 May 2011
  • Summary: I'm out of thoughts. I used them all up since I bought the ION PC.
  • Pros: Good quality unit and rather speedy for an Atom CPU when running Win7 64bit. Very nice looking, blends in well with my other home theater hardware. All internal PC hardware components are name brand hardware rather than the generic components you usually get with an econo-box computer. Many other...
  • Cons: Despite all of its good points and all of the wonderful reviews I've read, I cannot stream HD content from Netflix through a wireless connection or a hardwired connection. I haven't been able to find the cause of the problem so I cannot blame it on the computer yet. I have been researching this p...

Asrock Superheroes - Flawless

Anonymous, Newegg
14 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my monster full ATX, and noisy HTPC from three years ago. I have attached an external USB in 2.0 (and 3.0) ports to watch movies. There is NO PROBLEM whatsoever with transfer speed as the Asrock heroes in tech support indicated there would not be prior to the purchase.
  • Pros: Extremely quiet, fast, small. This device is SO QUIET I don't even know it is on! Boots to a screen that advises you to place and OS disk in optical drive. Everything else takes care of itself. Asrock Tech support are superhuman. These guys are very polite and know the specifications off the top ...
  • Cons: Not really a con. Not all drivers come standard with Win 7 - guess what... place the support disk in the drive after Win 7 installation, install all, Windows restarts about five times and everything is done. Another note and not really a con is that once all of the drivers are installed, the DTS ...

Update

  • Pros: Newegg repace the first unit arrived DOA. The second unit has worked flawlessly. 3D video does work using Arcsoft TotalMedia 5 as the media player. Out-putting to a Panasonic 50" plasma TV.
  • Cons: PowerDVD hasn't worked with 3D. I purchased the software, not the trial vesion supplied with the unit.

slick little box!

Steve C., Newegg
15 January 2011
  • Summary: I have not used it for playing high definition movies so I don't know how well it works for that. I'm just using it for basic computing, word processing, web surfing, youtube, etc, and it works great for those things.
  • Pros: It's reasonably quiet. Sturdy construction and everything seems to work.
  • Cons: I tried installing Ubuntu and the wireless connection did not work out of the box. I made some feeble attempts to get it working but didn't have a lot of time for it. I ended up installing Windows 7 so it wasn't an issue for me. One small annoyance in Windows 7 is that two nearly identical icons ...

Klein und Praktisch

Jan Fischer, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: Die kleinen Desktop-PC sind perfekt um mal einwenig im Netz zu surfen oder zur Büroarbeit. Egal ob Windows oder Linux. Ebenso als MediaPC unter dem Fernseher perfekt einzusetzen. Leise und genug Leistung ist auch vorhanden.
