Top Customer Reviews
1. It would have a video out on the back, it already has mic in and headphones input but if you have a bigger monitor you want to connect the output to during conversation to get a bigger picture, there is no way to do this
2. Add bluetooth! So that it's easy to pair a bluetooth headset to this unit
3. What's up with the battery that lasts 20 minutes? I mean common ASAS, you guys built me the 1005HE that holds for like 9.5 hours what is this 20 minute battery?
4. Put at least 1.3 megapixel camera
Other than above 4 items the phone is great, it's robust and well made, the top tilts to accommodate people of different height or seating position. Sound quality is definitely better than in my asus EEE PC. Easy to connect to wireless network. Like I said, great start but can be better.
What is it with Asian Tech companies that they cannot execute a great idea. Oh yes - lets wait for Apple to come along and destroy our model - meanwhile, we will just send half-baked, poorly thought out, horrible looking products and hope it stick to the ceiling! Having travelled, lived in Asia - I find that the Asian companies design for the younger hipper generation - completely ignoring the older (more wealthy) customer base. Feature after feature is thrown in - with scant regard for ergonomics. The iPhone has proved it and the AiGuru proves it also - albeit in a negative fashion.
So what is right about the AiGuru:
2. Single Function
3. Small enough to be considered portable.
4. Good Video Quality
What is wrong about it?
1. Everything else.
2. Touchscreen is not designed for Non-computer users. If a user needs to press multiple buttons to get anywhere on the menu, why not just get a Netbook for about the same cost?
3. Skype setup is frustrating and not designed for this kind of product. We could blame Skype for not listening to the older user base who want a simplified product - but Asus could have done better.
4. Setup from start is flawed - it couldnt connect to my wireless OR wired network until I rebooted and reset twice!
5. Whats the deal with the battery - its barely enough to be useful in a power failure situation - not for extended use.

When someone called me to my skype-in number, if I picked it up by other devices using the same account (e.g. PC, Linksys skype phone, Sony MYLO), this Asus kept rining for several minutes before it finally realized that there is no one on the other side. I hope that ASUS can update the software to fix this issue before I lost my patience.
Another potential issue is about the ASUS quality control: I ordered 2 and one of them has the bad display. The image looks like watching the negative-film. Color is wrong and the screen is dim. I returned it for the exchange.
Update on 6/11/2010
After 6 months of the happy time, this unit fails to boot. It displays "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER."
It is very hard to have this unit get serviced due to the annoying on-line service inquiry procedure that Asus provided. I cannot get the correct model on the service inquiry page no matter what I was trying.
Asus is an admirable company in terms of the product innovation, however, both the quality integrity and the customer support features are disappointing.
Update on 8/16/2010
After went through the almost impossible customer service through the phone calls and finally gave up, I turned to the on-line service again and finally found this self-service link (amz: this is not a commercial link but a customer helper, pls don't delete it and thanks): [...]
I hope this can be a little help to someone who has the same problem. The response can be very slow though.
This device is a lot thinner than I originally thought, it's not bulky and could easily fit in a desk corner or on a bookshelf. Good size.
The interface is easy to use and very clean. For touchscreen lovers, the touchscreen does an OK job and is fairly response - it's not great, though. For everyone else who wants some easier and simpler navigation, I recommend the buttons (this is what I use). There aren't too many buttons, but there are just enough to easily navigate to your contacts, make calls and change settings (volume, start/end call, main menu, back, and the up/down/left/right/select button hub).
The device has a host of languages available, which is nice if you want to contact out of country relatives.
The video quality is alright. It's not impressive, but really - it doesn't have to be. Video over the internet, especially instant streaming like video calls, will never achieve good quality with residential internet speeds. The video is a little blurry/pixelated, but it doesn't hinder the chatting experience. The mic works fine, no complaints there. In a nutshell, the video quality is the same as you would get with a decent USB webcam (what I use on my desktop), but the resolution is sacrificed when you start streaming over the web.
Seems to me that many people have complained about the WiFi being dropped. I have WiFi at my house, but I connected the video phone via ethernet, and it does a great job. I guess for this device - stay away from the WiFi?
This is a great device, I really like it, and for $150 (as of 12/22), it's a fairly decent price. It's great for grandparents or out of state/country/city relatives and friends you want to keep in touch with often. I recommend it. Overall 7.5/10.
