4 out of 5 eggsCAUTION!!!

Pros: Small, quit, looks good, perfect for the office, I have built over 20 computers with this system and only two bad units out of 26 to be exact.

Cons: ONLY WORKS WITH A FEW CORE 2 DUOS!!!! Be sure to disable the usb ports in the BIOS before installing windows or your system root will be on the E drive. Needs BIOS update to to get rid of error message (but works fine with error message).

Other Thoughts: Works with 4300 4400 6400 6600 6700

2 out of 5 eggsNice Unit....BAD soudboard....GREAT Newegg Service

Pros: Nice well designed case and system.

Would have kept it, but soundboard was dead.

Cons: Soundboard was dead on arrival. Windows Vista Home Premium shows no conflicts in device manager and identifies speakers being plugged in. Still, NO SOUND! Software switches turned on and everything appeared working. But, still NO SOUND!

BIOS had to be upgraded to work with Allendale CPU. Glad, sustem even ran with cpu error amd allowed the BIOS to be flashed.

Other Thoughts: Newegg RMA Customer Service was great on RMA authorization.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great design for horizontal desktop application. High quality construction and good layout. The mother board is an ASUS P5L-VM 1394. Installed Core 2 Duo E6320 and 4 - 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667. Very pleased with the results!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Be aware of the need for low profile brackets for expansion cards.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, But Not Great

Pros: + Solid Build
+ Attractive Interior
+ Breathable in Small Form Factor

Cons: - Low Pro Slots Virtually Unusable
- Single VGA Output, No HDMI

Other Thoughts: I like this case alot, and would buy dozens for work if they slapped an HDMI port on it. I had to finagle a low-pro card in by removing its slot hardware.

Good first pass, will look forward to next model.

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: -Good internal layout
-Provided CPU fan is extremely quite on a E6420 Core 2
-Frame and face are primarily metal and very solid
-Components easily added in tool-less fashion
-Vertical orientation with included "feet" very stable, even when desk is knocked

Cons: -SATA power cable not at all long enough to reach optical & HDD ports. Buy a power extension cable if getting this sytem.
-Onboard video chipset won't do 1680x1050 in Vista 64bit without a semi-official driver from intel's website.
-Even with this patch, things aren't as sharp as they were in XP, and some color gradients are visibly stepped. I'll be getting a low profile video card for this.
-Above resolution issues are non-existant for this system running opensuse 10.3

Other Thoughts: Surprisingly rock solid (and heavy). Case is nearly flush with my hanging 22' LCD when pushed against the wall. I had to upgrade to Vista for business reasons, and now feel like buying Bill Gates a stale beer. But with OpenSuse and XGL, this hardware flies!

5 out of 5 eggsOne of my best case purchases

Pros: Uses normal desktop processors and full size hard drives and full size optical drive. Accepts two 3.5" hard drives! Very convenient size for being in a media cabinet. Surprisingly sturdy construction (much better than Dell XPS-2xx construction). I used the CPU fan that came with the case instead of an aftermarket fan and it is still the quietest low-profile case that I've ever seen even when I have all 4 TV tuners going. (It is only loud for around 15 seconds when it first starts up, don't be alarmed).

Installation was surprisingly simple. Very complete, very simple barebones PC. Fired right up with no problems at all.

Was absolutely perfect for what I needed it for.

Cons: Only has 2-channel audio instead of 5.1 or higher surround sound.

As with any low-profile case, it is a bit cramped inside but not nearly as bad as some of my other cases.

The documentation wasn't terrific but if you take your time reading it and maybe also go to the ASUS website then you'll be fine.

The special screws that you put on the optical and hard drives were all together in a ziplock baggie but I had to dig through the packaging to find it. It could have just shifted around or it could have been my mistake. Not a big deal either way, just FYI.

Other Thoughts: If you are building one, be sure to search for "low profile video" here on NewEgg and you'll see that several video cards and a few TV tuner cards come with interchangable full-size and low-profile backplates

I just swapped the processor, memory, HD, low-pro ATI X1500 video card, and low-pro TV tuner card from my low-profile Dell media center PC (XPS-200, same as XPS-210) and she fired right up. After 15 minutes of installing drivers XP Media Center was rocking again and I finally got a more solid, standardized, and upgradeable platform.

My setup (all parts can be found on NewEgg):
-Pentium D 2.4Ghz processor
-ATI X1500 video card (PCI Express x16 slot)
-ATI TV tuner (PCI Express x1 slot)
-ADS MCE-4000-WX TV tuner (PCI slot)
-Hauppauge WINTV-PCR 150MCE-LP TV Tuner (the other PCI slot)
-Pinnacle HDTV USB tuner
-Linksys USB 802.11G wireless adapter
-250GB 3.5" main HD
-500GB 3.5" second HD
-Windows XP Media Center edition
-Microsoft Media Center remote

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice form factor, with a good layout inside. Quiet. Lots of features on the mobo. I put in a dual-core CPU and it's really quick.

Cons: The drivers for the onboard Attansic/Aetheros L1 Ethernet froze the machine. Tried different driver versions, and procedures from the Asus forum, but to no avail. I finally gave up and disabled the onboard ethernet and got a NIC instead. No place to put a chassis fan. Not all DVD-ROM drives will work well, because the bezel covers the face of the unit and the eject button has to be laid out right or you won't be able to use it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Got this to build a horizontal pc for my mom. It's a real basic machine for web browsing and music, but there's plenty of room for upgrading if needed. CPU fan is quiet.

Cons: Got "Intel CPU uCode Loading Error" on boot up. Flashing the BIOS will fix this problem. I used one of the utilities that came with the software. It was kind of buggy, but I eventually got it to work.

Other Thoughts: I didn't look at the dimensions before I bought it. The length is a little more than I was hoping it to be, but it's no big deal. I will probably get a couple more of these to build for other family members.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case, not that small, not that quiet

Pros: Nicely put together case mobo and power supply. Built in card reader and front ports are a nice touch.

Cons: I was expecting a specially designed case/mobo combination, instead it's just a stock Asus board (different BIOS though). Not nearly as small as I was hoping, but that's my fault for not paying attention to the measurements. Stock CPU fan is quite noisy as well. Power supply cables are a mess, only 2 SATA power connectors and they must be used for HDs (too close together to put 1 on DVD drive and 1 on HD). Cheap included SATA cables are too short and basically useless, plan on buying better ones.

Other Thoughts: I think this is going to make a decent HTPC but I wish I had done better research before purchasing this particular one. It's basically the size of a small desktop (remember those?), not nearly as small as the pictures led me to believe.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Barebone Sysytem

Pros: Very Stable and silent running system with great CPU options. Four expantion slots (low Profile) made this system a standard our choice for linux secuirty firewalls.

Cons: Does not suppport all Dual Core CPU's

Other Thoughts: Great Barebone system, I own 3 now and will be ordering 3 more soon. If you are going with the Core2 Duo it will only support the following Dual Core 2 CPU's : E4300,E4400,E6300,E6400,EE6600,E6700
