    This little computer is all it is advertised to be and it works great and uses a very small space.
    So, other than all that, if you have continued to read this far, it's a nice peice of equipment that I think I will enjoy hopefully for more years to come.

    I can watch all my movies, tv shows, YouTube videos, Hulu, or just browse the web from the comfort of my own couch.

    Now that I've had the EB1501 integrated into my home theater for a few weeks, I thought I would update my review of it.

    I have this connected via HDMI to receiver, surround sound and a 52" HDTV. Due to the limitations of my setup (not the EB1501), I do not use HDMI for sound, so I will not say anything about the box's ability to carry both signals properly. If you use S/PDIF for audio, you are going to appreciate the included adapter (works great). I was going to use Boxee or XBMC, but I don't like the hassle of setting up and integrating Tv tuners into those, so I am using Windows 7's Media Center.

    The EB1501 is EVERYTHING I have been looking for in a HTPC. It runs (very) cool and (very) quiet. It's barely noticeable yet attractive enough to not have to hide - which makes it easier to get to the DVD drive, power, ports, etc... The computer is stable and a workhorse for this task.

    With the Atom processor, I wouldn't recommend trying to do too much gaming or heavy multitasking. As a component in a home theater, this thing runs circles around the almost useless Media Center Extender I was using before.

    The EB1501 is quiet, though a bit louder than I expected. If it is sitting right next to me on the desk in a quiet room, the fan sound is a little bit annoying. With it mounted under the desk, even at night in a very quiet room I can hardly hear it.

    I hooked it up to a Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor to measure its power consumption. When it's not busy, it only uses 19 watts of power. I didn't try too hard to tax it, but doing things like launching applications and watching videos brought the power consumption up to 25 watts. I'm very impressed. If I left it on 24 hours a day, at 19 watts that translates to about $20 in electricity for an entire year. (For comparison, my regular PC uses about 5 times as much electricity.)

    Some things I've done on the EB1501 with no problem:
    * Watched YouTube and Netflix videos
    * Had sound going through the HDMI cable and through a USB audio interface (a Griffin iMic)
    * Had a VGA monitor at 1280x1024 and an HDTV at 1080p hooked up separately and also simultaneously with an "extended desktop"
    * Burned a DVD

    I'm very happy with the EB1501.


    For some reason the network refuses to connect at 1,000 Mbps even though it is hooked up to a 1,000 Mbps router by a short Cat 5e cable. I tried different routers and cables with no luck. I thought it was a hardware problem, but when I boot it into Ubuntu GNU/Linux, it connects fine at 1,000 Mbps. My guess now is that it is a Windows 7 network driver problem.

    Bought this machine, upgraded RAM to 4GB. So far so good. Had a few hicups w/WPA2 security & my router, but for the most part, the machine does a good job. I can watch HD content w/no sputters. And the box fits nicely tucked behind a wall mounted TV.

    If it had a Blue Ray Drive, the price would be more solidly justified.

    Easy to use.

    After some tweaking and in the installation of flash 10.1 with hardware acceleration for H.264 I finally got this little guy running pretty good. The price could have been a bit cheaper for this with all things considered, or atleast give us 4gigs of memory or a bluray player. Enough with the nitpicking! This system is quiet, small, energy efficient, and among other things FUN. I can watch all my movies, tv shows, YouTube videos, Hulu, or just browse the web from the comfort of my own couch. Apples new mac mini is a better all around media center. HOWEVER, the Mac Mini is like $799 with 4gigs of memory and then you need to get the wireless keyboard and mouse which are both $80. So you'll easily end up paying $1000 for a simple media computer. Surely though you can use the apple for some more complex things as games. I would put windows on it for that exact fact (even though the apple guys might really frown at this haha). Hope this helps!

    This little computer is all it is advertised to be and it works great and uses a very small space. In fact I mounted it to the back of my monitor and I is still accessible. The only issue is they should offer two models the standard with 2 GB RAm and a second model with 4GB Ra, I upgraded my memory to 4 GB and it enhanced the performance of this little mighty might machine.

    My planned use of the ASUS EeeBox EB1501 was strickly as a media device. First to handle the Logitech Squeezeserver for my two Squeezebox units and also to stream movies and TV from the internet. For these purposes it has been excellent. When sitting idle, but turned on, it draws 21 watts and is suitably quiet. The processor is adequate for the above uses but not much more; nor is it planned to be.

    My one criticism is the Trendmicro Internet Security software which caused me some difficulties with this unit. The data for my Squeezeserver is located on a NAS drive. While the Trendmicro was loading the Squeezeserver would lose contact with the NAS. I would have to manually reconnect the mapped NAS drive and then manually start the Squeezeserver. By removing the Trendmicro and replacing it with AVG Antivirus/Antispyware the problem was solved and I can now easily run my networked media through the device. The problem was caused by the relatively slow processoer and the CPU needs of Trendmicro while it's loading.

    I would recommend the EeeBox EB 1501 to anyone for the above purposes. Don't try to use it as a major PC, it would need more horsepower for office processes.
