DOA Replaced-All Good Now! Posted by: from: on Some more water has passed under the bridge since I wrote the "No Fluke - Dead on Arrival" review. Best Buy was gracious in allowing me to exchange the DOA PC I received when I returned the unit to the store. Thankfully, there was one in stock and upon request, the associates opened the replacement PC in-store to check that it was bootable. The unit ran the initial boot cycle without any hitches. I took the unit home and set it up. It has been running flawlessly since 3/30/16. The specs are very good for the price and for what my kids use this PC for, the Intel Core i5; 8 gigs DDR 4 memory; 1 terabyte hard drive; 2 USB 3.1 ports; 2 USB 3.0 ports; very good sound card; among others, are well worth the price of asking. The unit is very quiet, and boots up fairly quickly even without a Solid State Drive, which I intend adding in due course. So far, so good. ASUS should still get to the bottom of what is causing some of the units to malfunction out of the box. This working unit deserves a full 5 stars!

Possibly worst computer ever Posted by: from: on I am an IT technician for living. Got this computer for parents. Took it home and worked great for two days. Dad calls and said pc is not on anymore. It was on but lost video signal. I rebooted and it came back. Then, noticed user profile was corrupt. I ran hard drive diag and it said there were problems. I ran scandisk upon bootup and then it would not boot anymore with unaccessable boot device error. I tried startup fix but no luck. What really kills me is I then tried to format the hard drive and reload windows but it would not take. Just kept on saying there is a problem with PC. Returned computer and got something else.

Will stick with HP Posted by: from: on I recently bought an ASUS desktop because I had had pretty good luck with their laptop and I knew that they are the ones that make the hard drives for many of the other computer brands. That computer lasted 4 days before I had to exchange it for a new one. I decided to go with a DELL because there were only about 4 HP computers in the store and I didn't like any of them. We had had a DELL many years before and had issues with that one but figured they would have fixed the problems. I have had this computer no more than 3 weeks and have had nothing but problems. They are mainly connection issues so I had our internet people out looking to see if it was their issue. I was told to hook up my ethernet cable but the issues still persist. I am constantly seeing the buffering sign and a pop-up showing that there is no internet connection even though all other computers in our house are working. I am now going to have to pay to have Geek Squad (we have the $99 warranty but was told that I would have to pay a discounted fee) come out to see what the issue is because none of my calls to Geek Squad are able to diagnose the problem.

Terrible Posted by: from: on This is one of the worst computers I've ever had. I had this computer for 16 days when it completely stopped working. At the sixteenth day of having it, it just stopped working and wouldn't reboot. I tried many different things including reinstalling Windows but the computer refused to get out of the blue screen it was stuck on. That same day I took it to Best Buy and they couldn't help because according to them it was over their 15 day return or exchange policy so, I was stuck with a brand new computer that did not work.

Amazing PC! Posted by: from: on This a really good PC! So far, I've updated it with a GTX 970, a SSD, more RAM and a new PSU. It's running better than ever. I'm really happy with the purchase of this PC. I've been using it for gaming, 3d design and VR development. I've tested it with an Oculus Rift and it runs flawlessly. Even without the updates, the PC already had a good performance.

don't buy an asus Posted by: from: on after i hooked it up and got it going. i had a problem with windows edge internet browser. everytime signed into ebay the screen would reduce to the bottom and i couldn't read anything, the upper part of the screen went black. the other problem was the video driver keeps crashing. i updated drivers and so far it seems to be fixed. although it has happened since. the other problem is the letters and numbers on the keyboard are hard to read and even harder at night with the lamp on. they aren't bright white colored but are an off color thats hard to see. my dad has to use his reading glasses for typing.

What a piece of junk!! Posted by: from: on I usually buy HP computers but I decided to try something different this time. BIG MISTAKE!!! This is by far the worst computer that i`ve ever had. Since the very first day, this computer will freeze up to where I have to unplug it to turn it off. It is also SLOW as molasses. I`ve taken it in to Best Buy twice to have it fixed but of course they can`t find anything wrong with it. To say that I am very disappointed in this computer AND Best Buy is a major understatement. I will not be doing business with either one of them ever again. DO NOT BUY THIS HUNK OF JUNK!!!!

New Computer Posted by: from: on This computer is great for the price. Motherboard, Processor, and Ram that already comes with it is pretty nice. I got this computer as a upgrade from my old tower, threw in a Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 and this outperforms all the other computers that i have ever had. I game, and I DO NOT lag at all while playing. Great computer for a great price. If your a gamer, you should definitely check this computer out.

Worst experience in computers EVER Posted by: from: on Bought this computer in four days it crashed with the windows 10 update. Geek squad said they couldn't fix after 3 days waiting for my computer. Returned the first one they assured me that was extremely rare and I should give this computer another try. The second one crashed after 8 days!! My last computer lasted 6 years but became to slow. This system made me put at least w star I would give it negative stars because of the aggravation it has caused me!
