Summary: The computer is a nice, functional computer for basic internet use or for running basic Office products. But it was advertised as coming with Windows 7 Home and came with no operating system at all. That makes a huge difference in price and the ability to just plug and play.
Summary: This little box packs a punch. I had no trouble setting this thing up as it was very straight forward. I installed xbmc on it and it works like a charm. I am streaming videos to this machine from another machine on my home network and I gotta say, it works pretty well.
Summary: This ASUS Eee Box EB1012P is one of the best computers I have ever had and/or worked on. I have a background as a Tech Specialist/Helpdesk Tech, so I pretty much know what works and what doesn't. This PC is very good for the advanced user, and is also fine for the not-so-advanced user.
Summary: I bought this to use as a linux nettop machine (running Crunchbang, a variant of Debian). Everything worked right out of the box. At first, I was having a hard time getting the RealTek ethernet card to work, but after much testing I found that resetting my cable modem made everything work perfectly.
Summary: i use this box as an htpc for my tv. I primarily use it to stream from my Ready NAS and to surf the web when I want. I like the box as it doen't run too hot and I haven't had any trouble with it in the past six months or so since I have had it. I do have two issues with it however.
Summary: Incredible computer.... Excellent in every respect... Flawless packaging... Excellent OS.... Responsive....Modern... Highly recommended!!!! Only one gripe with this... The screw for the base did not came inside the box. Filled out a form with Asus Service online...
Summary: This is my third Asus unit I really like them, two netbooks and this Eee Box. I love the 64 bit version of Windows 7 it runs like a bat out of hell on this box. Just got finished watching a free youtube movie it works great for that even using WiFi.
Summary: It took me a little tweaking to get this to actually function as a HTPC hub outputting at full 1080p. At first this thing was a big dissapointment, out of the box it was not playing many high def videos. After a little pouting I: 1. Updated all of the drivers 2. Installed media player classic 3.
Summary: Interesting unit. PROS: Great size. Has ESata output. Plenty of USB ports and a reasonable suite of HTPC applications. CONS: It runs a little slow. And they say in the instructions that you need to set it up like in the picture -- ie don't lay it flat because (what they don't say) is it runs pretty...
