1 out of 5 eggs I take back what I said - this is a nightmare 06/11/2012

This review is from: ASUS CM6870-US-3AA Desktop PC Intel Core i7 3770 (3.40GHz) 16GB DDR3 2TB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Pros: All the same.

Cons: I had believed that my wireless problems had been resolved after my last review. However, they quickly resurfaced. I tried buying a new router. That didn't work. I tried a USB wireless dongle. No luck. I am consistently getting between 0.1 and 0.5 mbps, while on my laptop I get about 15, minimum. I called Asus technical support. What a scam. All they did was try to sell me some plan of some sort. So I finally went to my last resort: I reinstalled windows. I downloaded the drivers for the CM6870 on my laptop and used an external hdd to bring them to my desktop. It won't even let me install the drivers. This is a complete disaster. I have owned and worked on many, many computers - at home and at work - and have never had anything this frustrating.

Pros: For what you pay, you get a lot packed inside. The machine runs resource intensive programs with ease. Tower is nice and quiet. While some may think it's boring looking, I like the sleek, minimal design. The inclusion of 4 USB 3.0 ports is a welcome feature. Front facing USB and card readers are convenient. Quick boot, consistent performance.

Windows Experience Index results:
Base score - 5.1/7.9
Processor - 7.7/7.9
Memory (RAM) - 7.8/7.9
Graphics - 5.1/7.9
Gaming Graphics - 6.5/7.9
Primary Hard Disk - 5.9/7.9

Cons: Wireless-N card was useless. I got a spotty low signal and pages loaded like they were stuck in mud. Downloads were also painfully slow. I installd a $25 300mbs card from [wow NewEgg won't allow me to say the name of the store in my review] and now have full bars and lightening fast speeds.

The HDMI out didn't work at first. Somehow, likely through Windows update, the problem resolved itself. It was still extremely frustrating.

Only two PCI slots.

No firewire or esata.
