3 out of 5 eggsOk for what it does, but artificial limits.

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: Fast enough. Does web browsing well. Price. keyboard, mouse, monitor, all work fine.

Cons: The biggest problem is that it forces you to have a Google/Gmail account. I got this for my grandmother who uses it exclusively for her Yahoo e-mail.

Something happened to the automatic log in and it started asking her for her password again (after I originally set it up to not ask for a password). She couldn't remember the password so we had to reset the password online. By resetting the password on-line, she was able to log in to the box, but because the password didn't match the original one on the box, it locked her out of the old desktop account and created a new desktop account. WITH NEW SETTINGS. So none of her settings carried over. I'm there on the telephone with her trying to walk her through the settings of an OS I don't know on a screen she can't see yet because we haven't updated the accessibility settings. Catch-22. -- basically, I'm disappointed that we have to create a Google account for this box to work.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sam,

Thank you for the positive comment you have provided to the Chromebox. I certainly understand your disappointment with the product regarding a password and a Gmail account requirement before being able to login and use the unit. Yes, a Gmail account and password in needed in order to use the unit for security purposes. If the password was forgotten, you can recover the system to factory settings. To do this, you need to create a recovery media using the Chrome recovery utility that you can download from the Google Support website. You need another computer to do this. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and I would be more than glad to help.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: - Great value

Cons: - Would pay more for faster model

Other Thoughts: For a living room computer that you can surf the internet on, this is pretty good for the money but I wish it was a little more powerful and would pay $50 more. I would also pay $100+ more for dual monitors. If you are running 10 tabs with Youtube playing in the background it gets a little bogged down. Very good deal for the money and nice presentation.

5 out of 5 eggsExceptional Product

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: ASUS makes an excellent version of the Chromebox. I have 20 of these and a bunch of chromebooks in a classroom setting with middle school science students. There are far fewer problems than with PCs running any other operating system. My hours spent maintaining computers have dropped to nearly zero because of these things. The onboard processor and memory run the Chrome OS very well. The units are cheap and will work with nearly any monitor (with adapter for VGA) or usb keyboard/mouse. Mirroring or extending displays is a breeze. This unit also supports 5ghz wifi; many competitors don't as of this writing. I can go on and on.

Cons: You must know what Chrome OS is and not expect it to be something it isn't. Frankly, I have a hard time calling this a con. Once you get your head around using Chrome it's fantastic for students and for nearly anything most teachers would ever do. There really are no cons for this device if you understand what it is.

Other Thoughts: Buying anything else for a classroom setting is a waste of money unless you absolutely must have a certain application that runs only on PC or MAC. I teach science and have found Chrome compatible solutions for everything I need my students to do. Many of the apps we use now are better than the ones I thought we couldn't do without if I switched my students over to Chrome-based machines.

3 out of 5 eggsit's ok

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: takes up no desk space. chrome os is mostly simple.

Cons: have to get used to not keeping anything in it like you do a normal computer. file organization is different from windows, i don't like that. i use an external hard drive to keep my stuff & it's hard to find things with this. other reviews have mentioned using it as a hotspot, that's not true. they could have made chrome os more like the windows appearance just for ease of acclimation. even with 4 addition gb of ram it does still lag if there's more than 20 windows open. probably is lightning fast with just 1 window open but i always have at least 5.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Shannon,

Thank you for the positive comment you have provided on the Chromebox. I certainly understand the learning curve you are getting into if this is your first experience with the Chrome OS. Please allow some time to get use to its operation, it is an easy and fun OS to work with. The system speed or performance will not be compromised by leaving more than five tabs opened. Since the Chrome OS is a web base OS, please ensure that your internet service is working properly and has the required speed and bandwidth to run multiple applications smoothly. Should you need further technical assistance with the product, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

5 out of 5 eggsjust awesome

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: Streams everything from my computer and also YouTube and any other website for that matter. wifi and bluetooth are great features as well and I use them both.

Cons: Occassionally loses connection with my bluetooth keyboard that I use, but not that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: Works great with Plex

3 out of 5 eggsmeh

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: kinda fast but not as fast as advertised (even with extra ram). very compact. easy to set up & get going. adding ram was fast & easy. can't get viruses. finding files takes some getting used to; gets easier if you pin the icons (docs, sheets, files etc) to the bar on the screen bottom, similar to the windows taskbar.

Cons: make sure you look at the photos to check out the connector ports. i had to buy adaptors for my monitor & kb which caused a big delay in starting to use the c-box. you'll also need speakers. buy an external hard drive too if you don't want to keep all your stuff online.
mine doesn't make sound, apparently; and it stopped recognizing my keyboard after a few weeks. working on the return process now. i can only send it back to asus to be repaired, they're saying they won't replace it.
getting an intelligent answer from asus customer services is quite like pulling teeth.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Shannon,

I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. In order to connect a monitor that is using older interface, not HDMI, an adapter video cable is required. Since the Chromebox doesn't come with an internal speakers, you do need to connect a headset or an external speaker systems in order to get audio signal. The unit comes with an internal hardrive or storage but if extra storage is needed, you can always connect an external USB device. If you need further assistance with the product, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: Pros: Upgraded RAM with an additional 4MG. This made a huge difference. Much faster than any PC, Google offers most apps I need. 90% of the time it's used to surf the internet. Chrome interface is easy to understand an a relatively novice person like my wife had no issues.

Like having no maintenance! Ended up mounting my box on the back of an existing ASUS monitor. Cleaned up my office desk.

Cons: Only cons I would offer looks to be updated on the new Chromebox. Only reason I didn't buy that one was due to the price and didn't want to spend that much for something I wasn't sure about.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding!

This review is from: ASUS Desktop PC CHROMEBOX-M004U Celeron 2955U (1.4 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 16 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Google Chrome OS

Pros: unbelievably easy set up, plug in monitor and keyboard and away you go! Incredibly fast.

Cons: None really noted,

Other Thoughts: My wife's computer died and I use chromebooks at my job so it was a no brainer. She loves it, so I love it . I am getting me one just to have. Internet speed is beyond belief IMO.
