Overheating after 7 months- FAN caked in dust

Warren "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... Revised to three stars from one. Took it apart myself when this first happened and found that fan was caked with dust.

  • 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. otherwise its just slow enough to piss me off, even using xubuntu.

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). The problem is that you cant load NVidia drivers and must use out of date ASUS drivers. As a result, you cant do CUDA programming on the machine. I have worked for hours on this issue with NVidia and ASUSwithout a fix.

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 does not boot up, I called the customer service, they were unable to help me, so they sent me RMA, I sent it to service center, they reloaded the factory OS and returned it...

Too slow

  • 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.

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.
