Pros: Quiet, well-performing machine with tons of overhead. Attractive and conveniently placed port center (CF, USB 2/3, CD, MS PRO, microphone, headphone). Very pleasant setup and operation.
Cons: The wifi will not maintain a connection and seems to interfere with my other wifi-connected systems, making it necessary to disable wireless and locate the machine near the router.
Other Thoughts: As a pro user, I'm very pleased with the performance of this machine. I have it setup as a Windows Media Center, connected to an HD HOMERUN dual tuner, which gets its signals from free, over-the-air broadcasts. It's a backup to my Tivo, recording a couple dozen shows a week. I haven't had any performance issue; CPU and memory usage levels stay very low when running multiple browser tabs, Office and Media Center concurrently. I have not investigated the wifi issues, but disabling it and using wired networking eliminated connectivity issues that had previous occurred network-wide using the ASUS's wireless networking.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: Bought it for 60 GB Maxtor I pulled out of a nonfunc 98se computer. Went together snug, nothing to install or configure, works flawlessly on my XP notebook and no complaints of noise or heat. Third time doing business with newegg after referral from collegue who buys a lot of stuff from them; both happy with peformance and not a single issue.READ FULL REVIEW
