Summary: In the past two years, I have purchased numerous VOT132 Thin Client computers for my company. I have never had a breakdown. They are excellent! OnSale is the supplier, is courteous and ships quickly. I am extremely pleased with both OnSale and the VOT132s.
Summary: The portability and size with the ability to be attached to the back of a monitor makes it an excellent addition to a computer room needing the extra space. However, the combination of low ram and cpu takes a major toll when streaming is limited to only SD quality else videos begin to lag in frame rate.
Summary: This will not stream 1080 out of the box. You must update the nvidia drivers and all the codecs. Then pay to download a program called Core Avc . It's is post on a review for another mini PC made by Asus. I tried it out of frustration because nothing else would work. This all took a few hours to down load and install these programs. I just watched Cowboys and Aliens in full HD without any stutter. So this will work but first YOU have some work to do.
Summary: I run about 8 different PCs for my company. This little PC is as fast as any of them for e-mail, web-browsing. I leave it on for weeks to run my integration software because of its stability and speed. I am purchasing a second one for my Point of Sale software.
Summary: I bought the VOT132_BVDB00 version of the VOT132 (this is the version without a Windows operating system installed) in order to use it as a legacy Windows XP computer. I bought my VOT132 from Beach Audio using Amazon. I had a valid XP license and installation disk from an older computer I had recently retired. Unlike ViewSonic's subsequent PC mini, the VOT125, the VOT132 has full driver support for Windows XP.
Summary: I really like this Atom-based PC, it's incredibly small. Much smaller than a previous Asus equivalent I've bought before. It's no speed demon, so if you need some real performance or have expectations, this probably isn't the PC for you. I only gave it 4 stars because: The drive is partitioned very awkwardly. It's a 320GB drive partitioned with a 39GB, primary C: drive and then a 254GB, secondary d: drive.
Summary: Pro: Great PC for surfing the web and email. Performance is excellent for such a small form factor. Liked the first one so much , bought a second. Con: Fan gets a bit loud when using the unit. No internal optical drive.
