Summary: I jsut recieved this today and I have to say I am quite suprised that the machine performs so well for the price.It's been a purchase so far that I would highly recommend which I don't do that often for emachines.It's relatively quick very small and only had a minmum amount of bloatware. I can't wait to see how it will perform wth an upgrade to 4gb of ram.
Summary: Bought this little thing to replace a Core 2 quad that was making too much noise. Since the desktop is just used for word processing and web surfing, speed is not important. MS Office, itunes, even 1080p video played back just fine. Absolutely no noise. Storage is not an issue since I save to a home file server. Very happy. Hardly notice the difference compared to the Core 2 Quad.
Summary: I purchased this machine based on the reviews here and overall, I have been very pleased. A few key things that went into my rating: 1. Like many others, the first thing I did was to remove all the crapware that came preinstalled. That took about an hour but it wasn't too bad. 2. I updated all of my drivers, especially the nVidia and Realtek audio drivers. 3. I went into the BIOS and upped the video RAM from 256 to 512 MB.
Summary: This is a perfect little computer hookup to a TV to watch netflix/hulu/youtube. It has built in wireless and HDMI output. This gets rid of lot of wires that would need otherwise to hook up a computer to a TV. It comes with minimum bloatware. Its pretty quiet and requires very less space. Its a no brainer for people who needs a cheap media center PC.
Summary: After a couple weeks I would say the emachine ER1402-05 isn't bad. You can't help but factor in the $300 price tag - hence the 4 stars - it is what it is. It is not the fastest machine in the world but the setup with Windows 7 was easy and the USB, HDMI, and digital media card reader ports are good. While clearly documented, the 7.1" x 7.1" size is a bit surprising - it is smaller than you expect. But it is quiet and can fit in a small spot.
Summary: Il nuovo eMachines ER1402-05 mini-e Desktop è un PC rivoluzionario, sottile e compatto che fornisce il pieno intrattenimento multimediale HD e di produttività di tutti i giorni.
