  • Summary: It works as advertised, but it's too slow for any reasonable computing needs. Woefully underpowered.

Overheating after 7 months- FAN caked in dust

Warren, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: Worked great for 7 months then yesterday started overheating. Shut itself down numerous times due to overheating. Top of unit too hot to touch. "Power Monitor" software still says running at less than 10 watts. Now I see various mentions of overheating in web reviews. Believe them. 9 months later...

  • Summary: it has a very specific use and purpose. its not really meant to be a game machine, not meant to be a server. its just meant to be a computer that you can tuck away and doesn't use a lot of power. one thing i notice is that i need a SSD for the machine.

Good but ...

  • Summary: I purchased this product because it has a lot of great features (small size, multicore, etc) I have had the unit for about six months and can recommend for everything but the support for the NVidia card it comes with (GeForce610M).

Too slow

Mr Parker, Amazon

  • Summary: We have three of these devices and there performance is slow but reliable. One we have driving a 3D printer while the other two are being used as simple desktop units. The desktop units are sluggish running the latest Office products.

Good one but....

  • Summary: I purchased this for the 4GB Ram and small size. The performance was very good as I expected, but couple of problems made me return it for refund. Main issue was, after I setup a start up user password in CMOS setup, it will boot and ask for the password, but it does not recognize and key stroke and...

Cute PC, but the front USB ports failed.

Spaceman Spiff, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: This was a nice little machine, and one of the last PC's to ship standard with Windows 7... it's too bad the USB ports on the front didn't work... and it had to go back. This is a good PC for your mom.

Decent little machine

Tommy B., Newegg
26 December 2012
  • Summary: Newegg put no effort into the shipping. They put the shipping label on the product box and sent it on its way. Not even a sheet of bubble wrap or air-pellets. The product box offers minimal protection, and will only protect it's contents when bound together with others on a pallet.
  • Pros: I got this little machine as a Christmas gift for my Mom. It's perfect for her needs. It's pretty quick to get around the web and looks great when hooked up to a HDTV. The Media Center works great with the remote control. I can confirm that this computer had a dual core.
  • Cons: Locks up a lot, I don't know if it was damaged during shipping (a real possibility, read other thoughts) or if the mouse/keyboard receiver causes the problem. When it works, it works great, but then it will start this nonsense.

Eee Box 1503

Gene B., Newegg
15 August 2012
  • Summary: I'm invested in ASUS products: 5 MBs, 2 Tabs, 1 Netbook.
  • Pros: Very small and has everything I was looking for in a media computer.
  • Cons: After installing all of the Windows updates, decided to give DVD a try. No Joy. Sucks the disk right in. Makes noise like its attempting to spin it, but never recognizes any CDs, DVDs.
