This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CM6870-US011S Intel Core i7 3770 (3.40GHz) 16GB DDR3 4TB HDD Windows 8
Pros: Fast...like lightening. Quiet Easy to get started
Cons: Audio ports didn't work until I updated the drivers Windows Key didn't work, so I have to re-set it Came with wifi card, but no antenna
Other Thoughts: All these issues were not unfixable. The missing wifi antenna cost me $4 at my local computer parts store. I was able to find a recent audio driver and install it, and I was able to figure out how to do a workaround of activating my windows 8 key (just google that you can't activate windows 8 product key).
In the long-run, these issues are fixed, and no insurmountable problems have occurred. But I can't help but wonder if someone else was faced with these issues, if they'd give up and settle for a "mostly working" system.
It is true what most forums say, ASUS tech support, although prompt, is generally unhelpful. It's easy to see with the grammatical errors in the response emails that they're either being translated or the technicians has English as a second language.
Still, Google saved the day. If I didn't have to buy physical hardware (the antenna), I would have given this 4 stars.
