Summary: No frills. Does exactly what it says on the tin. My only niggle is that it doesn't have many USB ports (which is in the description-- I'm not complaining that I didn't know beforehand), so keep in mind that if your setup is not yet totally bluetoothed-out, you'll find yourself unplugging one device to make room for another from time to time. A minor inconvenience at worst.
Summary: This is my first ASUS computer and I couldn't be happier, I've given up on the other brands for good now! I like having a fast computer with no issues to speak of.. It doesn't slow down when I install new software, especially my virus program. I'm looking forward to having this ASUS for longer than 2 years, which has been the average for me with my last several computers! I'd recommend it as a much better choice than the others I've used.

Summary: I returned my computer for repair eight months after I bought it. It was repaired by Asus and returned to me. Now six months later, it's dead again, no picture just the sound of the cooling fans. Don't buy this computer, it's not worth the headaches.
Summary: Dont waste your time or money on this product. I didnt buy this off of amazon but did purchase it at a best buy store which was solely by their recommendation. The motherboard went 2 months after I purchased it which was covered under warranty @ that time. Not even 1 1/2 years later I went to turn the computer on and it wouldnt boot up.
Summary: So on my 32 inch HDTV, at a resolution of 1360x768 I get 30-40 FPS with High resolution, Trilinear anti-aliasing, Ultra view distance, good shadows, and ultra particle density on WoW. The rest is either low/disabled. You could defintely build something much better for the same price. I'm just now trying to upgrade it so I can play FF14 on it. (It can play it, but at 20FPS on LOW EVERYTHING) If you use a smaller monitor, you might get better framerates.
Summary: I did a lot of research before I bought this computer. I thought a lot about my needs and try to match it exactly do I would work within my price range. I needed a computer that I could do basic office work on, but one that was also effective for gaming, organizing media, and entertainment. This device is fast, well built, and easy to set up. And it's cheap! I'm very very happy with it. The only downside I can think of is Windows 8. I like Windows 7 better.
Summary: This is a fantastic PC. It's the third Asus computer I've purchased. One laptop for me, one for my wife and this desktop for me. I am a retired IT professional and have dealt with most major brands of computers throughout my career. Asus has the best computers and peripherals that I've dealt with. Amazon is the best company for standing behind the products it sells. The next computer you purchase whether a laptop or desktop make sure it's an Asus.
