ASUS Chromebox (16GB, Celeron Dual Core, 1.4GHz, 2GB) PC Desktop -…
CHROME IS ERASED!!!
New item: Purchased a month ago but could not return it to seller because I erased chrome and installed Libreelec (Kodi). Item still comes with Libreelec installed, not Chrome. The hardware works fine.
Included in the box
– Chrome BOX (chrome erased and Libreelec installed)
– Power Supply
– Mounting brackets and screws
Chromeboxes are the best!
Having deployed several Chromeboxes with various types of installations, I've gotten pretty comfortable with them.
They're fast, quiet, and don't consume much power. I've used both ChromeOS and have reflashed many to use Ubuntu. All of them are still running strong to this day.
You really can't go wrong with a Chromebox, especially at this price. 2GB of RAM is a bit low, but that is easily upgradeable.Read full review...

"Reliable as to what it's worth BUT not a real PC"
This small "cute" box is basically a Chrome browser which allows one's Internet access in a quite efficient way; BUT, the so called Chrome Web Store resource is so poor if your looking for the real toppers, I mean, it's kind of BIZARRE what it's happening when a device is capable of reaching much more stuff than what they let you (Google this time!!!) obtain from the apps free market. If you can afford buying this item for just covering desktop-like Internet experience in a big display Go ahead, otherwise, if you pretend to install or stream media intended applications using this box as an interface then don't even think about it. The 16GB SSD memory drive won't let you go far anyways...Blessings.Read full review...

Great solution for using a keyboard with TV
The MU004U was very much as described in other reviews I read about Chomeboxes. It boots up fast, unlike our DVD player and works great with an Logitech K400 keyboard. No more fat fingering the single buttons of a DVD remote for YouTube or a Netflix search.
The only negative I have is the ON button is the corner of the M004U is like a touch screen and takes me couple of tries to turn it on. I haven't gotten the remote yet so this should move to the review mirror soon.Read full review...

Best alternative for desktop PC for in-home learning.
Nowadays in home learning is the new normal and having an affordable desktop is high demand - Chromebox fills this gap. If you have an old USB mouse, USB keyboard, headset or an old set of PC speakers then you are all set! Display connection is HDMI only - you may need to buy a DVI or DVI-D to HDMI cable if your monitor is old. Does not come with all the connections you will need it just comes with the power cable. If you have an old PC like me and want to replace it, a Chromebox is a great alternative for basic Internet browsing. Chrome OS is fast and less bloated than Microsoft junk. After plugging the Chromebox via Ethernet or WiFi Chrome OS will do an auto update - this will prompt you to restart the device and it will have the latest OS. You can initiate update manually by going to the Settings - search Chrome OS How to update on Google if you need assistance. Connecting to a printer can be tricky and needs a little bit of know how for wireless connectivity. Connection via USB port for printer never worked for me - I have an old HP printer. Pros: affordable, fast, easy setup, space saver. Con: need external storage for high capacity memory, driver compatibility (keyboard, printer, other peripherals), not designed for multiplayer gaming, apps limited to Chrome Web store. Chrome OS makes everything simple and smoother and that is why you get a Chromebox or Chromebook.Read full review...

Chromeboxes are great and they can run Linux too!
Love the compact size and quiet friend! Also love that I can dual boot Linux on these boxes if I want to, or replace the operating system with newer versions of ChromeOS alternatives.

Nice, tiny computer!
Nice tiny computer. After upgrading firmware, RAM and M.2 SATA card... installed Win 10. Decent little machine for the size and price!

The original owner had added an extra 2 gig of ram and the thing is gratifyingly fast. The fact that it is so easy to add extra ram makes this one of the product's many desirable features. If you know how to use Chromeos there is no reason to own a big desktop again, and the chromebox makes a big screen tv much more useful immediately. One of the benefits: you can read online books and articles on a giant screen and this is way cool if you like to pace around and do other things intermittently while reading.Read full review...

Great Plex Client
After following the very detailed instructions on one of the Plex forum posts, I had my ex-Chromebox running OpenPHT. It will direct stream my Bluray rips, and my Pre-amp recognizes Dolby-True and DTS-Master streams perfectly. If you're a Plex user, you need one of these for your home theater: shoot, as cheap as they are, just put them on every tv; you won't need a powerful server to transcode anymore.Read full review...

I already own a Chromebook and a Chromebox and got one of these for my parents. They love it. Fast and Real simple to use. Not allot bells and whistles like windows 10 to bog the computer down.

We use this chrome box to run a fitness software on dual monitors so that our students can enter and watch their progress and the teachers can use it for grading purposes. It has done everything we've asked of it.Read full review...
