Summary: I have been using this PC with an external 2TB USB drive as a file server and XMBC media center for quite awhile now - it is solid, works great, makes almost no noise, takes up very little space and uses very little power. The ion chipset makes for smooth video playback in XMBC to the 1080p TV connected via HDMI.
Summary: Our library is always looking for a bargain that gives good service to our patrons. The Asus Eee Box HD 1006 Nettop PC really meets these goals. Over a year ago we purchased three models from Amazon.com and now, with hundreds of logins each, patrons are satisfied with their performance, amazed at the compact table top "towers" and easily navigate to their site destinations. We do not permit accounts or storage space so the limited space serves us well.
Summary: We bought the Asus Eee Box to complete our living room entertainment system. We have our television hooked up to the Eee Box and our portable hard-drive as well. We can now watch Netflix and Hulu directly on our television! We love it!
Summary: I am very happy with the product, it works very well, easy to setup, keyboard and mouse are much better than what I had expected and nice looking. WiFi connected without a problem, other than I had locked the FN key to numeric and my password wasn't being typed in correctly, my bad. My one recommendation would be to purchase 2GB of ram at the same time, or it should be pre-installed, because it needs it if you are using it as an entertainment center as I am.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised when I initially booted this machine up. It processes extremely well and is virtually quiet. You have to get really close to it to hear anything out of it. After a day or so of running on Windows XP I decided to commence my plan of using it as a Media Center. I loaded ubuntu linux and xbmc on it and after installing a couple other debian packages it was up and running with-in an hour.
