3 out of 5 eggsDisapointment

Pros: Good looking case, Simple nice design, Honestly the whole computer is fine and up to my standards excluding the Motherboard.

Cons: The Motherboard is totally disappointing, I had to have this system go together flawlessly for work so that it would be ready to go right after the general put-together. THE INT-NIC is not going to run with the Drivers IN BOX. Do yourself a favor and download the Old version on the asus website. Put them on a Pen Drive and install. Otherwise you will go through some serious grief.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to have an internet ready system standing by for this put together

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little computer

Pros: its verry small yet has all the great features of a larger computer, pcie and pci expansion slots, regular sized power suply (verry handy for upgradeing), good use of space internally (the swing out section contains the power suply and the HDDs which makes it easy to upgrade and work with, card reader built in, case sofar has proved quite durable.

Cons: the slideing door on the front feels a little clumsy, the button for the optical drive doesent have a whole lot of play to it sometimes wont reach the button on a drive (depends on the drive)

Other Thoughts: overall a great computer, great form function, great features, durable, easy to move around for lan partys etc. supriseingly easy to upgrade dispite its small size! and a great price!

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad.

Pros: worked upon first power-on. pretty much trouble free.

Cons: update bios if you want to run anything more than a 5000+

front sliding panel design is pretty much useless--stays down all the time.

a bit noisy at times

a few glitches i've run into--see below.

Other Thoughts: in my experience the card reader and front panel USB get knocked out if you have any USB hub connected. front USB will supply power, but no communication.

the RAID controller, which i didn't use, was normally not active. but it did act up for a few days. apparently it thought there's a raid somewhere, and took a few minutes to finish the scan (and get nothing) on each startup. can't get rid of it. asus tech support wasn't helpful. eventually the problem fixed itself somehow.

3 out of 5 eggs3rd mini system. First from Asus. Not impressed.

Pros: Sleek design. 2 SATA drive bays to run RAID. Setup was quick and easy. The drive bays are on a hinge which makes maintenance easy.

Cons: VERY noisy. Sliding panel on the front looks good in the photos but is not practical. Difficult if not impossible to see the hard disk activity light. Space restrictions on what video cards will go in it. Peformance is not what I expected.

Other Thoughts: I could live with it if the fans did not sound like a hair dryer. I've owned Soltek and Shuttle systems that were much better in all aspects. While there is nothing functionally wrong with the system, I'm not that happy with it.

1 out of 5 eggsNo more ASUS!

Pros: Attractive Design - i.e. an absolute sub-standard product wrapped in a shiny shell.

Cons: - No LAN, No Audio at first start-up. Updating the BIOS to try to fix the problems resulted in a bricked barebone.
- Have to send the unit to Asus for repair.
- Rebate sent in 10/2007, check received 08/2008!
- 08/2008 LAN (NIC) no longer present, will try another driver or buy a new NIC card.
- The Asus support website? Oh, that Pentium III server sitting behind some noodleshop in China.

Other Thoughts: The other ASUS product that I've bought was a P5B-E MoBo. That MoBo is on the way back to me from Asus repair.
For me, my family, my friends, co-workers, the company that I work for and anyone else that I can convince - NO MORE Asus anything!

2 out of 5 eggsI'll never buy an asus barebones again...

Pros: small, cool sliding panel idea, looks good. the MB has everything I wanted.

Cons: media card reader just locks the computer up and has never function, fan is ungodly loud, for some reason it's slower than my old PC with half the specs. can't upgrade the poser supply because it's smaller than a normal one. no room for harddrives.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what is wrong with this barebones system, but I am just going to shell out 300 bucks to just get a nice motherboard and case of my choice like I should have done in the first place. it's not a money saver at all, because you can get a decent motherboard and rosewill case for almost the same price. I do a lot of research before I buy computer components and this is the first purchase I regret 100% and can't think of a single thing I like about it besides the look.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Case

Pros: One of the best cases I've had. I use it for my media center with a TV tuner installed. It's great, small form factor, but it still packs a punch.

Cons: Tight squeeze when adding expansion cards, definitely no oversized cards will fit.

1 out of 5 eggsI can't believe they sell this for money...

Pros: -Nice looking case.
-Great Features.
-Great Price.
-Vid card was showing up with 512MB instead of 256MB (Not sure if this is a good thing though, all things considered.
-Can be returned.

Cons: Where to start... Some of these will look familiar... Others I hadn't seen. -NIC doesn't work with included drivers.
-VGA out is default with no way to change that I could find.
-USB is wonky. Two different keyboards would randomly not work upon OS load but would after a warm boot.
-Memory is not supported as advertised. 3GB in BIOS at 400MHz.
-Very poor docs. Quickstart guide in everything from Afrikans to Magyar though!
-Very poor support via ASUS, which has fallen very far from their former excellence.

Other Thoughts: Most of these issues are known issues, acknowledged by ASUS... Some of them are 2 years old and still around. Others are months. People just keep finding new things wrong with them.

Word to the wise DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! Just do a good search for the model number and "issues" or "problems" and you will see why. I bought this based on a couple good reviews I saw and my past experience with ASUS. I am a convert now. I will not buy another one of their products after this experience, research around it, and speaking with many others about other recent ASUS products.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Display DRIVER!!!!

Pros: Once you figure out which mfg supplied drivers make it hang, you're ok I guess with a month of wasted time.

Cons: This case is small, and I bought it to be my photo studio workstation with nothing but photos and editing software, fast secure etc. AS soon as I got things running it would randomly freeze up, and would not soft restart, had to shut down and power on again. Sent off to repair place. Two different techs looked at it, no luck. Finally I reinstalled windows and when the driver disk caused the problem uninstalled til I discovered it was the Geforce Drivers. Updated from nVidia site and all seems to be well.
No posts on ASUS or anywhere else about this.

Other Thoughts: If you run XP go get the newest ASUS drivers
