5 out of 5 eggsRefreshing and affordable, why wait!

Pros: Affordable, easy to use, always up to date and virus-free w/ Google Chrome OTA Updates, Boots in like 8 seconds (no joke) and best of all - a power house for the money!

Cons: Obviously, not for everyone - don't use it if you think you're installing programs like Windows or Mac systems. Must have "Google Cloud Print Ready" printer for printing and make sure you either have a TV and/or monitor w/ HDMI input, or you'll have to buy an adapter to connect to alternative source.

Other Thoughts: If you are familiar w/ the Chrome OS family - this is great. It's quiet, boots up quick and is a great device to give to a child to do research papers or an older family member who needs a low fuss, simple and easy to use machine. I haven't experienced issues like other reviewers but as someone with 3 chromebooks already in the home - this chromeBOX was another welcome addition to the Chrome family.

3 out of 5 eggsDitch ChromeOS

Pros: As long as you are comfortable voiding the warranty and putting Linux on it, this could very well be one of the best HTPC options available right now. Sure, you could probably build a better ITX PC from parts, but this Chromebox is self-contained, a better value than an Intel NUC, and has most of what you need out of the box.

Cons: The worst thing about a Chromebox is Chrome OS. Ditch it immediately.

1 out of 5 eggsChromeBox misery

Pros: Stable.

Cons: Everything else. This is a waste of money. Turns out Chrome Browser is free and you can just download it if you really want it. Save yourself some trouble and just get a real computer. Don't try to print, scan, burn DVD's, watch DVD's, connect your camera, or synthesizer, or anything fun or useful. Don't expect to run any apps of value. If you just want to browse the web, this will do the trick. When you get tired of that...well, sorry.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat device if you don't need wifi

Pros: Small form factor and lightweight can multitask well

Cons: The wifi antenna is terrible. I had to give this device 3 eggs because of the wifi. I did some internet speed tests when I was only one floor above router and was only getting only 5MB down with a strong signal strength. Only time wifi was usable (~15MB down) was when the computer was in the same room as the router.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to not use the wifi it is a solid chrome machine and multitasks well. But if you have any intentions of using the wifi I would consider other options.

2 out of 5 eggsSick of HP quality power bricks

Pros: Worked for a whole 2 hours. Maybe it's just a coincidence (bad luck) that everything relatives' or myself buy that is HP brand has issues with the power coard, charging, and/or the power brick.

Cons: Died after a few hours with this message on a white screen during boot "your power adapter isn't giving enough power please use the correct power cord".

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a burnt out HP nettop for a relative (they were having issues with the power cord and charging; after about a week the motherboard fried). This chromebox has issues with the power adapter as well, luckily they manifested almost immediately so I can return it without issue.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat computer for older parents, just hook it up to their TV.

Pros: Great performance. My father could stream HD video on his favorite websites, and it was extremely smooth and jitter-free. I installed Google Hangouts chat from the Chrome store and it works excellent for me to stay in contact with him. He doesn't understand Windows 7 and got malware on his old PC, so this was a great replacement. His wireless keyboard and mouse USB dongles worked immediately. Everything auto-updates. Very affordable compared to other options.

Cons: Mine failed in less than a day. The video froze. Turning it off and back on results in no video signal. I guess the video output hardware failed when it froze. Probably just a fluke, it happens, and NewEgg easily returned it. I'm ordering the Asus instead, just in case.
