8 months after purchase, the hard drive is failing, as verified with the self-tests run with the hard drive shipped with this computer. Asus support was not at all knowledgeable or helpful. After waiting over 45 minutes hold time in order to speak with a representative, I spoke with someone who was not familiar with the error, was not aware that they ship models with disks that run self-tests, and could not offer any assistance. After I explained the error to the representative several times, she came to the conclusion that "there might be a problem with the hard drive."

Asus will not ship replacement drives in the event of failure, but rather they require you to ship the entire unit back for inspection -- to be repaired if they find the problem is covered under warranty.

As was noted in my original review, I had opened the computer case at the time of purchase, in order to install additional memory. The computer ships with 2GB of memory and is only marginally useful with the factory specifications. Though with the upgraded 4GB memory, it ran most applications well enough until this problem occurred). Unfortunately, Asus's stance is that simply opening the case of the computer voids the warranty, and they have suggested that I take it to a third party to be repaired at my own cost.

At this point I have invested: $510 original purchase price, $35 to upgrade memory, $80 for extended warranty (which is worthless!!), over $600 invested in a system that is no longer functioning. Now I will have to spend more out of pocket for repair. I will definitely never buy from Asus again.

I've been looking to update my home theater system for a while now but most HTPC's have been either overpriced or underpowered... This ASUS Eee Box EB1501P-B016E Nettop has provided a mixed experience with basic video and audio functionality performing decently but running other utilities was slow and could cause occasional lock-ups.

The system setup was simple and the self-update that it performs was a nice surprise. It immediately matched my Sony HDTV native resolution and presented a beautiful, sharp, colorful picture.

There are several features that I am already taking advantage of like HDMI Out, Toslink Out, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, Wireless-N... the Toslink implementation is through the use of a small adapter plug that you put into a 3.5mm stereo jack in the back of the unit. It took me a minute to determine how to get it setup but it works great. (Keep track of the little optical adapter packaged with the accessories, without it you won't be able to get Toslink out of this).

Inclusion of the Windows Media Center remote control on top of the wireless keyboard and mouse have made using this system simple. Streaming video and audio from my network drive or streaming media services has worked well.

A quick tip, there is a user selectable mode found in the ASUS Manager utility which provides maximum performance while reducing some of the power saving... and while I didn't seem to need it on, I recently activated it and did notice a performance improvement.

I bought this to replace a large tower PC that I was using for my media center PC hooked up to my 50" LCD. Its very small, and fits nicely into the entertainment center which is the biggest pro. The biggest con is that its not nearly as fast as my desktop, which I do notice. I went from quad core w/ 8GB ram to this, so the difference is big. However, I do like the HDMI hookup and the way that it converts the content automatically before it goes on the TV so that it takes up the whole screen and looks as good as it can. HD looks pretty good, even when streaming. I wish the internet connection on it was a little faster, the wifi is just OK. I don't use the included keyboard and mouse because I have the Logitech DiNovo Edge one which is just the nicest media center keyboard you can own for sitting on the couch and using your computer. One day I will mount the computer to the back of the TV, but it was easier to just set it down since I am still using an entertainment center.

PLEASE READ THE TITLE AGAIN.

A nettop isn't for surfing the net with 10 movies loading in the background. The nettop is a streaming device idealy. A home network should be setup and your PC should be the work horse not your nettop. A nettop should never replace a home PC, you wasted your money if you tried.

If you want to judge this based on it being a PC, I will be the first to say it sucks. It's underpowered, it comes with useless software that bogs down the system, 2gb ram is great for running Solitaire.

But as a nettop this thing should get 5 stars. It's runs movies just fine from the net and downloaded content. Ran netflix fine as well as hulu. I had no problem streaming 1080i or playing it back on the nettop itself. I suggest the 4gb upgrade anyhow. This will ensure a great quality film to run as it should.

There were plenty of USB ports for what I need it for. I also bought wireless headphones, a game controller and an external hard drive that are using up three more spots.

The price tag is a left heavy imo. But it was right in line with other companies so it is what it is.

So if you want a machine that does what it is intended too then this machine is for you. If you are looking to run multiple CAD programs off this than your off base.
