4 out of 5 eggsGreat Economical Computer

Pros: Great price
Quite fast

Cons: small case size
low wattage powersupply

Other Thoughts: Great computer for the cost. Build my own desktop 8 years prior and i needed an upgrade. I go to school for Autocad and i do play World Of Warcraft so i needed something that was good in price and would run both. Upgraded the ram and added a gtx650 graphics card and it runs great! the case makes it hard to put in upgrades and the airflow is quite low but i hope i can transfer all the components to a new case and resolve the cooling issue. Overall great computer for its price

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No problems with delivery or start up of the new ASUS desktop PC. It has been running over a month with no issues and is much faster processing than my 8 year old HP desktop. Great PC and great price.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Keyboard supplied with the unit is low end, but I didn't use it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, works

Cons: Warranty sticker nonsense

Other Thoughts: I bought this to use as a Linux box. It acts as a file and print server, and monitors my CCTV cameras with ZoneMinder. I bought a cheap 8-input BT878 card to connect my cameras, so I needed a machine with an old-school PCI slot. This thing works fine, I had to void the warranty to install the capture card but oh well. I got it set up, stuck it in the closet, and it basically just works. It's on 24/7 and no heat or other issues, so I really can't complain. For the price it's less hassle than building my own.

1 out of 5 eggsHDD FAIL IN 2 WEEKS

Pros: Nothing positive - Big computer company wins again.

Cons: Hard Drive failed in 2 weeks so i call newegg for a replacement but was denied because I threw away the box.

So i call Asus and explain the problem (they had me do a system restore that of course failed). They want me to buy a box and ship it back to them. That will cost an easy $45!

So I ask Asus to send me ONLY a hard drive and ill replace it myself - DENIED.

Asus won. I am going to buy and put in a hard drive myself. Much easier and only a few bucks more expensive than sending it back to them.

Other Thoughts: I swear i have better luck with refurbished! I buy about 2 PC's a month.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry that your computer's hard drive failed. It seems like quite a bit of bad luck. Not only did you find out that your computer no longer works, but you had to pay for shipping to send the desktop back to us; that must have been quite a frustrating experience. I am glad, however, that you were able to fix the computer yourself by replacing the hard drive. Should you need further assistance, please let me know. My email is

Best regards,

ASUS Customer Loyalty

1 out of 5 eggsNever again

Pros: Alright while it lasted.

Cons: We had this computer for 2 months, when I turned around and left the room, came back to a black screen. Called Asus and tried to repair over the phone with no help. MUST send it back on my dime! Is it worth it? Don't think I'll ever buy a Asus computer again. Maybe not from Newegg either..

Other Thoughts: If something is under warranty. It shouldn't cost the customer more money if that "GREAT DEAL" fails from a manufacturers defect! So how did you save?

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings Osie,

I am sorry that you had a bad experience with your CM6730 desktop. I completely understand how much of a hassle it is to have a computer that will not power on. If I may, I would like to help.

Have you had a chance to follow through with ASUS support and send your computer in to be looked at by our technicians?

Please let me know by emailing me at

3 out of 5 eggsIs common sense gone??

Pros: Good specs for my daughter. Good name brand***so I thought. I am happy with the specs for what I paid.

Cons: Used the computer for 3 weeks...started to get the BSOD. I ran some trouble shooting the memtest. The machine only has 2 ram sticks, so I found the defective one and removed it. Machine works fine now...except that I only have 1 stick of ram in the machine. So I call Newegg to see if I can just get a replacement stick of memory so I don't have to ship the whole computer back. Well, they just direct me to call Asus and were no help at all. So I give Asus a call and express to them that I build computers for the company I work at and have lots of experience with building and fixing them. I explained to them that my computer has a bad stick of memory and I would like to be able to return my bad stick to them and have them ship me out a new one so I can replace it. Sorry sir, we can't do have to ship the whole computer back in for a replacement computer! All for a lousy stick of ram that can be replaced in less than a minute!!! Also, since I opened the case to remove the bad ram, they probably wouldn't honor my warranty anyway!!

Other Thoughts: Is common sense gone?? Today it apparently makes more sense to a company to ship an item back for a minor thing instead of just sending out a replacement part that can be shipped out for about $2.00! Granted, not everyone would feel like me and they would want to ship the computer back and get a replacement. That is fine and I understand, but I offered an easy solution to them. I have built so many computers over the years and getting a bad stick of ram is a pretty common occurrence.

So, here I sit now shopping for a new ram kit for the computer. Hopefully I will not have any issues with the rest of the computer over the next year. Since I had to open it up, I have no doubt that I have voided my warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome ASUS

Pros: This computer deserves a much higher feedback rating than it has. If you disregard all the ratings that complain about not being able to modify it due to a label on the back saying you will null and void the manufacturers one year warranty by opening it up, you will be much better off. I always shop for what the unit is, not what I can modify it into. This unit has everything I wanted by leaving it stock and not playing with its insides. I learned a long time ago to buy what I need in a computer. This had exactly what I wanted and much, much, more for the money.

Starting off, I wanted Windows 7. My wife has a laptop with windows 8 and I just couldn't get used to it. I was far more comfortable with Windows 7. It has a one terabyte hard drive at 7200 RPMs, more than I will ever need. I'm set forever. I bought a Western Digital portable 1TB USB hard drive to hook up to it. It came with a USB keyboard and a USB Mouse. I had a USB WiFi plug-in for my Internet connection and printer operation. I also plugged in two USB Flash Pen Cruzer drives, a USB portable 3.5 floppy unit and another multi four outlet USB for additional USB applications all in the back of the unit. In other words, everything I had. This left the front two USB ports for my camera hook-ups. It isn't short on USB's.

My new 25" wide moniter has a VGA or HDMI input and the computer has both of them too. Take your choice. The processor is an Intel Core i5-2320 3.3GHz. You won't find many computers out there with an i5, 3.3 GHZ, most are i3 and lower GHZ. It also has a 64 bit Quad-Core Processor. This computer does not lack speed. It's incredible for my uses. The cooling fan on the unit is exceptionally quiet, so much so, I never hear it. The case looks nice too and is compact.

In summary, about the warranty label; It's the best excuse I can think of for my son and brother-inlaw to keep their hands out of my computer for those improvements they think I need. When they improve computers, they never work right again and always land in the trash heap.

Cons: I recommend immediately downloading the Windows updates because there were a slew of them. I even went back over and over because there were more and more. I also recommend downloading drivers because I found there were over 20 new ones for the unit. I use a free program download called Slimdrivers, but there are many on the internet.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quick load time, Quiet, runs great.

Cons: Can not add parts without voiding the warranty.

Other Thoughts: This system runs really great for the money. I'm using it as a dedicated DAW and it was supposed to be a "hold me over" until I built a super DAW. But I don't think I need to now because it's handled everything I've thrown at it with ease. Highly reccommended.

Pros: Price

Cons: Headphone port came slightly broken (not a big problem for me but needs to be mentioned)
Description says 2 expansion ports for extra drives,there is only 1 (kind of a problem for me)

Other Thoughts: Price dropped a week or so after I purchased,which is a pretty big bummer
