4 out of 5 eggsimpressive picture quality

Pros: At first glance, the monitor is very impressive looking. The white gives it that chic classiness. The picture quality has the wow factor, very vibrant and crisp. The monitor has a Reader button, which has predefined brightness modes for reading. It also has a Chrome button for quick access to the Chrome browser. It allows for wired or wireless network connection, as well as bluetooth. Any updates to the operating system are loaded automatically. The Chromebase can also be used as a monitor as it has an HDMI input.

Putting together the stand wasn't difficult, just awkward. The monitor was a bit wobbly when first placed on the stand. I thought at one point the stand would break. Bootup time was incredibly fast. The setup was very simple and quick. I was asked to connect to a wired or wireless network. Once I was connected, I was asked to log in. I had an option of logging on as guest. If logged in as guest, however, some settings and programs are disabled. Shutting down was just as fast as booting up, and can be done either from the menu or by pressing the power button on the monitor. When logged into my google account, gmail, google search, google docs, and youtube icons are placed at the bottom of the screen for easy access. If I'm logged on, my email account is also automatically logged on; however, I can log out if I want to and will be required to log back in next time I access my email or anything else that requires logging in. Other apps such as google play music, books, and movies are also preloaded.

Cons: The biggest limitation is the lack of drive space and Chrome's web store. Everything that's downloaded is actually stored on google drive. Even apps that are "installed" are mainly Chrome browser add-ins and are accessed via their URLs. Some apps, however, do allow offline use. The Chrome web store is limited to whatever Chrome has to offer, and there's not a huge selection. Most apps that I've tried downloading are actually links to other websites and not really apps at all. Their app store is nowhere near the level of the Android or apple stores. The Chromebase also boasted about their virus prevention, but nowhere does it say how exactly it keeps viruses from getting loaded. The speaker, which is located in the back of the monitor, lacks in volume and quality. Music sounds hollow and there is no range to the sound whatsoever. Turning the volume up as high as possible, the sound did not travel very far. This is probably the worst quality speaker I've ever heard from a monitor.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I was mainly impressed by the picture quality. Though I use Chrome browser, I'm not a Chromecast user, which is probably why I was a bit disappointed in the overall functionality but I had to keep in mind that this was meant for web-based operations only. If you just want to surf, you're connected to Chromecast, and you don't intend on writing papers or creating presentations or spreadsheets with it, then it's a pretty decent web-based all-in-one.

5 out of 5 eggsBig thing; Small package.

Pros: Since this item is a complete PC, there's a lot to cover. I'll break down this review piece by piece.

Packaging/Contents: I'm pleasantly surprised by how much LG managed to squeeze into such a small package. The entire system consists of a monitor (housing the PC itself), mouse, and keyboard, with speakers on the back of the monitor. It also includes a set of screws for the monitor stand, and a plastic cover for the mount.

Monitor: For this price, I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. The monitor is using an IPS panel, which is known for having some of the best picture quality on the market today. I definitely wasn't expecting to see such a great quality screen included. I already own several IPS Panels, some of which were $350+, and the monitor included with the Chromebase is on-par with those. Very impressed.

Storage: 16 GB SSD. It seems small, but considering what the Chromebase is capable of, it's plenty. I'm glad to see they used an SSD, and SanDisk is a reliable brand with popular SSD's. In this situation, a larger/slower HDD would have been a bad decision.

ChromeOS: A simplistic but usable OS built around the Chrome web browser. The desktop layout is similar to Windows, so most people should already be familiar with it. Aside from web-browser based features, it includes an App list as well as some basic settings features including WiFi, account controls, brightness/volume, a camera, calculator, and other necessities. I will cover the drawbacks of ChromeOS in the "Cons" section.

Usability: It works right out of the box. Setup includes plugging the monitor (PC) into a power outlet, as well as hooking up the USB Keyboard and Mouse. It boots nearly instantly, less than 5 seconds. The OS itself, the UI and its layout, are perfectly responsive.

Value: Here's where it all comes together. It's currently $299 on Newegg (on-sale), which is just amazing. I'd price the monitor itself at nearly $200, which means getting a complete PC for its current price is simply astounding.

Cons: Keyboard/Mouse: The keyboard is slim, full-size, and uses Chiclet keys. It uses low-profile keys so there may not be as much tactile feedback as you're used to. The mouse has a red light on it that glows when it's being moved. It features the standard Left/Right clicks, as well as a scroll-wheel which also works as a middle mouse click. The mouse and keyboard feel a bit flimsy, the mouse in particular. They both work perfectly fine but you can tell where corners are being cut to meet some price limitations. Another small, but noticable problem, is the lack of middle-click scrolling in Chrome. This feature exists in Chrome for standard desktop PC's, why was it left out of the Chromebase? I assume it's an issue with ChromeOS, and a shame to see a quality of life feature being left out.

Apps: This is a bit misleading, since they're not "apps". They're mostly Chrome extensions. Since nearly everything you do in ChromeOS is built into the web browser, the "apps" are just shortcuts to various websites including Google Docs, Google Play, Google Drive, etc. Even the "Games" app just sends you to a flash-based gaming website.

The monitor attaches to the stand with screws, so it can't be tilted or otherwise adjusted in any way. You won't be able to knock it over by bumping into it, which is a potential problem other monitor stands have, so I suppose it was an intentional design choice based on the target audience of the Chromebase.

I also found the speakers to be a bit disappointing, they're incredibly quiet even at max volume. In fact, I would say the speakers are inaudible in noise environments. The monitor has a standard 2.5mm audio jack on the side, so any set of speakers/headphones should work fine. I recommend not using the onboard speakers. If you're planning to listen to a lot of audio with this PC, you should plan to also buy something else to play sound!

And finally, I find ChromeOS to be extremely limited, but it depends entirely on what you want out of your PC. You can't install programs on it, which explains the small 16 GB included storage.

Other Thoughts: For clarity, I need to point out this computer DOES NOT support the Google Play Store or any other kind of Android Apps.

With the ultimate question being, "Is this computer worth buying?" It boils down to what you need from your system. This PC bears a lot of similarities to basic mobile devices like tablets/smartphones, but with a larger screen and with a full keyboard/mouse included. I would argue this PC is slightly less capable than most mobile devices, being that ChromeOS itself is quite limiting.

If you need a basic, web-based family computer or a simple computer for someone who only demands web-browser support, then this is an excellent option at a very competitive price point.

4 out of 5 eggsI ran out of room on my first review

Pros: Same

Cons: Same

Other Thoughts: I'm posting the rest of my review because there is a hardware glitch I wanted to address: Regarding the volume, you can set it using both the screen menu arrows and the keyboard’s dedicated volume keys. I noticed that if I had the volume set to 100% using the screen menu there was an intermittent, high-pitched, quiet but noticeable squeal that sounded like a hardware feedback loop. Interestingly, the noise would occur when I moved the mouse. I found that if I lowered the onscreen volume to about 65% the noise went away (or was so low I couldn’t hear it), even when I maxed out the volume using the keyboard. I experimented with another USB mouse and got the same results. Then I tried two different wireless mice, one Bluetooth and the other RF. Neither produced the squeal and they worked just fine with all volumes set to max. The moral of the story: if you get one of these plan on investing in a wireless mouse. Oh, and don’t expect much from the speakers, they sound like what you would typically get on a laptop, with no bass to speak of. Sound is greatly improved when using headphones or external powered speakers, of course.

I was curious to see if the USB 3.0 port on the side of the monitor (there also are three USB 2.0 ports in the back) could power something bigger than a thumb drive so I hooked up a USB 3.0, 500GB Seagate external drive. It took only a moment to launch, and all of the files stored on it were accessible. In addition to the ones I mentioned earlier I was also able to view .bmp and .jpg image files. By the way, I found a “File” app preinstalled that takes me right to the file tree; very easy to navigate if you need to go there.

I’ve been using the Chromebase exclusively since I got it while my Windows desktop sits idle, and I have to say that all-in-all this is a very nice unit. I’m giving it 4 stars even though it isn’t perfect, simply because you’re getting so much value for the money. I would have given it a perfect score if it hadn’t been for the feedback problem between the monitor and the mouse and the difficulty with printing and handling of some documents. Frankly, I think this computer excels at its intended use and price point.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice All-in-One

Pros: Terrific IPS screen
Boots from full off to logon screen in seconds
Snappy performance for its specs
Drop dead simple to use
Lots of useful apps

Cons: Low end keyboard and mouse
Tinny speakers
Limited storage
Can’t run Windows x86 programs
Printing documents is a challenge
Feedback between monitor and USB mouse

Other Thoughts: We’re a Windows PC household, with three desktops I built and a couple of portables, so I’m comfortable around computers. I’ve also had Apple computers in the past, starting with the Apple IIe in the 80s and ending with a Mac Mini a few years ago. I have to say the Chromebase is the easiest computer I’ve ever set up.
It is also a very nice looking unit, something of an iMac lookalike due to the stand, although definitely not the same build quality. The Chromebase is all plastic construction, to be expected at this price point, but nicely executed. The keyboard and mouse are budget items but I found typing on the keyboard to be pleasant enough, with good tactile response and key travel; not bad at all for a membrane keyboard. The mouse is a cheap, lightweight thing, but it gets the job done. The money you’re paying is for the monitor. It’s a very nice, full HD IPS screen that looks terrific.
There is some assembly required but it’s well documented and simple, just six screws to mount the computer to the stand. Then all I had to do was connect the mouse, keyboard, Ethernet cable, and power. As soon as I plugged in the power the computer booted to the logon screen in just seconds. There was a brief, optional tutorial on the screen after logging on and then I was up and running.
We network in our house using powerline adapters, and I hooked the Chromebase up to an adapter during setup for internet connectivity, then later went online with wireless to see how well that worked. No problems with either mode, they both worked as they should. After logging on to wireless the first time the system will automatically default to that if the wired Ethernet is disconnected.
I tried all the programs that would be important to me if I didn’t care about AAA gaming or fancy image editing programs. I tested Gmail, Netflix, web searches with Google using Chrome, Outlook.com, Pandora, and a bunch of others, and everything worked just as it was supposed to with no hassle. Netflix movies, for example, stream nicely with no stuttering. I especially liked that I can open the Outlook Web App (OWA) to access my work email. High-end gaming is not an option on this device but performance is surprisingly good considering the specs. I tried a couple of the free games in the app store, like Bejeweled, and they ran fine. I didn’t experience any noticeable lags or slowdowns, but be aware that with only 2GB of RAM you won’t be able to do any serious multitasking.
I also tried multimedia files to see how they would play. I ripped one of my movies to .mp4 format on my Windows desktop and transferred it to a 3.0 USB stick, then launched the movie on the Chromebase. It played flawlessly with adequate volume, as did .mp3 music files.
Speaking of volume, you can set it using both the screen menu arrows and the keyboard’s dedicated volume keys. I noticed that if I had the volume set to 100% using the screen menu there was an intermittent, high-pitched, quie
