Pros: Large hard drive, Fast quad core APU, Stylish look, Asus reliability, Comes with Windows-7 (Not Win8) Built in FiFi & HDMI, Built in card reader. Enough RAM. USB-3 support, Small tower
Cons: No restore disk, Cheap & noisy power supply with no power-switch, cheap mouse/keyboard, No reset button, No hard drive activity light.
Other Thoughts: Had this system for a day now and it seems to be reliable so far. I am still adjusting all settings, removing bloatware and all. Enjoying the Windows-7 OS, 64-bit environment. My system was shipped with Purolator which is the worst rated courier service in the country. Sure enough they couldn't even find the building we live in. I had to go to their facility to pick it up myself. When I removed the tower from the box, I noticed something is lose inside and a screw was rolling on the bottom, inside the case. I wanted to open it, in order to remove the screw, but a yellow sticker is placed at the edge of the case, threatening with voiding my warranty if tempered with. I had no choice but to open the other side and fish it out that way. The system is running since this morning and no crashes so far. Hope it stays reliable for long time to come. I am not using the included peripherals as they're very substandard and cheaply made. Unfortunately I have no choice with the equally cheap and noisy power supply. Will replace it in the future with something better. Built in WiFi and a card reader is a nice addition. I also wanted to a reset button and HDD activity light that's missing. Case is small enough to fit anywhere. I had to make a few adjustments in windows and now it's blazing fast. The screen is a little jittery when scrolling up & down on web pages, with the on board GPU, but Win7 gives me a 6.7 W.E. rating on video, so it's not bad. I may upgrade this later for a better card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Unifying receiver, Long battery life, Ergonomic design, Comfortable size. Attractive looks, Smooth scrolling, Plug & forget setup. Laser precision.
Cons: Springy buttons hard to click it's also somewhat loud. I am a designer and owned many peripherals, My prev mouse is an M310, also made my Logitech. Clicking with this mouse feels like clicking with a really cheap mouse.
Other Thoughts: Again, high shipping cost held me back from purchasing at New-Egg, but a local retailer matched the $19.97 sale price and did not have to wait or pay shipping. Guess for the 20 bucks it's worth it. Really hopping that by time the buttons get smoother. Now it just feels like a mouse I'd pick up in the dollar store. If you're on a budget, don't waste your money on this mouse, Just get the M325 for less, which is also made by Logitech and only slightly smaller than this, but has much smoother clicking. We own an M325 and I compared the two, side by side and the 325 is much nicer to click with.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very nice design, quiet keys, also reduced pain after periods of typing. Excellent price, Long cord, rubber legs stick to table firmly. Big delete key. Plug & Play, Ergonomic design.
Cons: Fingerprint and dust magnet, Could use a mute button and browser button. No height adjustment or flip-out legs.
Other Thoughts: Had this keyboard for a few months now and after using a no brand keyboard, this one is a treat to my fingers. It doesn't travel on my glass table like the prev one did. Has relatively quiet keys and a long cord to reach my tower, which is on the floor. Price was right for about 17- bucks, however I had a local computer store price match Newegg's price, so avoiding the high shipping cost which would of been almost as much as the keyboard itself. I regularly have to clean it, as dust and fingerprints easily show on it. Overall love the raised middle, equals less strain on your wrists and fingers while typing. For the money, it is a respectable and high quality product and I recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
