Great little machine

Mary T., Newegg
28 June 2014
  • Pros: Bought this as a replacement for my parents. Love the small footprint and it's great for them since they really only surf the internet. If you're not a heavy user, this should be great for you.
  • Cons: If you like to use your computer for CD's or DVD's, you'll have to get an external hard drive.

Handy, stylish and functional

Ahmed, Amazon
18 June 2014
  • Summary: The EeeBox is very great for space limited buyer and/or one who look for mini PC to be mounted to the back of the screen. Its performance is very good, I've added to it OZ 128GB SSD, 2GB RAM (1033 MHz) this is the bottleneck of this PC and that's why I gave it 4 stars. I really like the design and the black touch, i wished there was more detials/instuctions (printed/online) on what specification of RAM and HDD/SDD that are compatible with it.

  • Summary: Only had this about a month, but so far so good. I paired it with an Asus monitor and mounted the computer on the back of the monitor. Almost like having an all in one. Convenient.

Works and it was cheap as anything

ReadHead322, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The box works nicely with 4 gigs of ram and an SSD. Linux runs well. Pros: -Tiny & quiet -Great deal for the price Cons: - Flash is a mess on linux. And with the already weak processor it can't handle full screen youtube. I haven't tried to play normal videos full screen but I suspect they would be messy.

Convert An Old HD or VGA Monitor to an All-In-One

Amazon Customer "rockin the blues", Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: I had a large free standing VGA monitor left over after my old desktop had outlived it's usefulness and I wanted to do something low cost. My thought was to have one additional machine for web browsing, something simple. After a little research I found this. I have it bolted to the back of the monitor, you can't even see it. I put a small WD 320GB HDD in it and used Ubuntu to format the HDD and as the OS. I'm happy to report that it is working great.

Useful for certain purposes.

MATTHEW B., Newegg
12 February 2014
  • Summary: For those who are curious, the unit I bought and received the day of this review came with a Seagate Momentus Thin 320GB drive, and 2GB of PC-12800 (DDR1600) SK Hynix DDR3 SO-DIMM HMT325S6CFR8C.
  • Pros: VERY low wattage usage, onboard nVidia GPU useful for video decoding (viewing). Gigabit LAN and USB3.0. Did NOT come with Windows 8 (Yes, this is a PRO.)
  • Cons: Severe lack of documentation from ASUS. No dis-assembly or upgrade information available anywhere. (Search youtube for some great how to videos.)

Works fine as a server (with USB disks)!

Rune L., Amazon

  • Summary: Is running 24/7, and has done so for months. No problem so far :-) The fan noise isn't bad really...but at the same time I never really see the machine either, or push it to hard :-)

Excellent media box

K. Halgerson "Halgy", Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: This is an excellent little box. I'm using it as a media server/TV PC, so my case may be different than most. It does have a bit of fan noise, but in among my TV, PS3, and receiver I can' hear a thing. It seems to run most basic programs pretty well (chrome, VLC), but I haven't really pushed it. You can even do dual screens (HDMI and VGA), if you want. I used it as my main internet PC for a few weeks until my gaming computer arrived.

Great Hardware

Seth Michael Thompson, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: The design, size, and feel of this net top box is awesome. Too bad it didn't come with a hard drive or ram. Be wary when purchasing as this is not a complete solution.

Great for HTPC

Erdal Harput, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this little device together with 4gb ram and 64gb SSD, installed Ubuntu and finally XBMC to have the Perfect HTPC. It is capable of playing full HD content with the Nvidia drivers, very silent and easy to hide behind the TV. Only con is that after purchasing this unit while waiting it to arrive, Amazon changed the deal and included 4gb of ram, 320gb HDD and Win7 Home Premium for just witth addition of 6 dollars.
