Summary: This little computer replaced another giant Emachine knee knocker under my desk that I've had for 7 years. It was a refurbished as well. Frankly I did not want an operating system but this came with Windows 7 and so far so good. I've never known windows to go more than a year without major problems so at the first sign I will install a free Linux OS called PCLOS. I've already checked it out and it works perfectly. It is superior to Windows for what I do.
Summary: I purchased 10 of these emachines to fit behind lcd monitors on small desks, they're an excellent product. This PC has a really small footprint, low price and runs reliably for most applications including web, streaming media and wireless. They have a cool green glow emitting from the bottom to let you know it's running, are very quiet - although two had a subtle high-pitched ring at first, which went away after a few days.
Summary: Very nice and good performance, although I'm still having some "noise" in the sound. Don't know if that's a driver issue. I have the latest driver installed. Connected to a receiver through HDMI. I tested audio with both Optical and HDMI, but still the same noise. Video and other features are very good.
Summary: This was bought to connect to a large TV in order to watch tv and movies online on occasion. And it fills the requirement perfectly. I did not want internet on my TV from my BluRay player, or anything else along those lines, as I wanted full computer functionality, not just a few apps that someone else decided would be all I needed.
Summary: I own a slightly different version of this Nettop; the ER1401-57. The only differences are a slightly larger disk (250GB) and dual core processor (which is why I bought the 1401 over the 1402). I bought this little box to to add full PC functionality to a New LED 32" Sony Flat panel (using full HD HDMI output) I put in my Kitchen.
Summary: The eMachines ER1402 does everything I need it to do. I bought it as a "TV computer" to hook my TV up to the internet so we could watch Netflix and Hulu in the living room. The built in wireless picked up my home network and I was up and running in no time. The keyboard and mouse that come in the box are wired, so I added a wireless keyboard and mouse.
Summary: I bought this because I needed something that could both handle my daily usage and that came with windows 7. As advertised this little computer has done extremely well. No problems to speak of thus far. The only downside that I saw was that the keyboard it comes with is not a full key board. It does not have the number pad. Luckily for me I had one lying around... Also If you have the need for more USB ports than 4 you may run into some issues.
Summary: I bought one of these about a month ago. Hooked it up to the plasma big screen and a webcam as a media PC. Plan to use it for internet video viewing, skype-ing, gaming etc. Great picture. The HDMI output port was a key feature I looked for. Easy to set up and get going - just plug it in and turn it on. I hooked the keyboard and mouse to a 16 ft long active USB extension cord so I can put them across the room on the coffee table.
