ASUS Mini PC CHROMEBIT-B013C RockChip 3288-C 2 GB LPDDR3L 16 GB eMMC Quad-core ARM Mali-T624 Graphics Google Chrome OS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It is what it says, a Chromebook in a candy bar. Plays video fine, browses the web fine, I'm using a wireless USB keyboard/touchpad combo and they compliment each other really well.

Cons: I can't get any audio through my Pioneer receiver. The Chromecast and my Xbox One both get audio just fine (even tried using the same input). I get audio just fine on my monitor (it has internal speakers). I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software related issue, but either way, until its fixed I suggest holding off if you're thinking of HTPC applications for this.

Other Thoughts: Its an incredible device, just not for what I wanted to do with it.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Relatively cheap, keeps things impressively cool. I brought my PhenonIIx4 3.2Ghz to 3.81Ghz with this thing, and temps stay under 55-58 under heavy load. Large fan makes it pretty quiet for the amount of air it moves.

Cons: Its big, and not the easiest to install, you need to remove the socket plate from your mother, which, depending on your case, will require you to remove the motherboard. As long as you're competent with computer hardware it isn't too difficult a job. Keep an eye on your RAM slots, too, I had to attach the fan a few fins above the bottom of the heatsink to make room for my Ripjaws.

Other Thoughts: Tldr; it works great, its cheap, but not the easiest to install and you have to make sure you've got room

ASUS VH236H Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: ASCR is incredible, makes darkness look dark and light look vibrant
Perfect size, just large enough for full HD without being too unwieldy
Very bright with plenty of controls

Cons: OSD controls are...not so intelligent
No swivel or spin
A little wobbly

Other Thoughts: What I took away from this was that ASUS cut out all the extras and kept the money where it counts. No it doesn't spin in all directions, no the OSD doesn't make sense, and yes the stand seems cheaply built. But what you get then is an incredibly clear display, very bright and vibrant with almost no ghosting or bleeding. Perfect for gaming or movie viewing. The OSD you learn to get used to.
