It works, nothing special.

Adam H., Newegg
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I picked this up on sale for about 40% off, and even then I don't think I quite got enough bang for my buck.
  • Pros: Works as advertised.
  • Cons: The wireless mouse and keyboard only have a range of one meter (a little over three feet for the mertically challenged), which was a bit of a disappointment given the intended use. I don't know many people that sit three feet away from their TV...

Nice basic system

James R., Newegg
28 November 2011
  • Summary: System is nice for email and net stuff. I would consider 4G (2Gx2) memory for any real activity.
  • Pros: Quiet system, little mallware, compact
  • Cons: Memory was 1 simm, not 2 as indicated. I was upgrading to 4G anyway as I had it laying around. So the performance is much better with both slots active. Ripping CD's from the DVD drive is a chore. I usually have error correction turned on and get like 10x speeds from other computers. With this on...

Solid Home Theater PC

Pbalfanz, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought the Asus 1501N a year ago to be a Home Theater PC and replace my Comcast Cable. We cut the cable and use Windows Media Center with over the air. This thing plays video without any pauses or slowness.

Was great until

Neil S., Newegg
19 July 2011
  • Summary: A great little computer , fast enough for everything but encoding converting video . Lots of the included installed software is useless , wish they would not include anti virus (TREND ) , have to uninstall and install what I LIKE TO USE , or give the option to install it , that way I don't have to...
  • Pros: Set up was easy , responsive for such a low power CPU did everything well , keyboard , mouse and remote worked very well , well built as well . A great package , portable easy to move from room to room or take out on a trip , HDMI connection makes connections to TV or monitor simple and wireless ...
  • Cons: DVD drive jammed during test run ! Had to send it back .

Nice - with drawbacks

Michael P., Newegg
17 May 2011
  • Summary: Can't knock off too many stars, its a decent HTPC, but there are better choices.
  • Pros: Compact, well built, pleasing - small size, decent price.
  • Cons: Doesn't play full screen streaming videos very well. It has very choppy playback streaming online media, flash videos and such. A major drawback for a HTPC unit essentially built to play back streaming video.

Ahmed, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this pc mainly for watching movies. I installed XBMC and i am very happy with the performance. It is small in size and comes with a keyboard, Mouse and remote control. The 2gb of RAM is adequate... but may be i will upgrade in the future.

Desktop Netbook Plus

Steve M., Newegg
27 January 2011
  • Summary: Little documentation but the machine is pretty standard stuff, i.e. Windows 7, USB, Wifi, etc. I did have to assume that the D: drive was actually a partition on the internal drive which I had to format. Its for use by user files.
  • Pros: Very small (8x8), Quiet, Optical Media Writer, SD reader, USB3, wireless kbd and mouse, Wifi, etc. read specs, I haven't used all the features.
  • Cons: First one was DOA but I believe it was because the OS was improperly loaded. Got an RMA from ASUS as Newegg was out of the units. RMA handled properly and new machine seems to be running fine. There is a lot of bloatware which may be useful for someone using this as a media machine. For my purpos...

Pretty Nice Computer

Ryanmschroder "Ryerye", Amazon
10 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a large tower PC that I was using for my media center PC hooked up to my 50" LCD. Its very small, and fits nicely into the entertainment center which is the biggest pro. The biggest con is that its not nearly as fast as my desktop, which I do notice.

asus EB1501P

marchanddesable, Amazon
17 September 2011
  • Summary: discret, silencieux, compact, rapide, DD un peu faible. A recommander. Un point négatif: il n'y a plus de système fourni sur DVD , et les logiciels préchargés, trop souvent payants, nécessitent un nettoyage (temps perdu)pour les éliminer.
