    Great BAREBONE computer, if you understand what a BAREBONE computer is., May 27, 2015
    By 

    This review is from: ASUS VivoMini UN42-M023M Barebones Desktop (Personal Computers)
    Great BAREBONE computer. Ignore the early bad reviews, people are complaining that THEY didn’t know what a Barebones PC was. This is Barebones so you can put whatever OS you want on it. I’ve got a dual boot setup with Windows 8.1 and Linux. Performance is surprisingly good, better than I expected. Runs quiet and sips power. Seems well made, but I can’t talk about durability since I’m on my first couple months with it. So far, very good. Would like to see a lower price, but this is much faster than another similar desktop that was cheaper – I’m sendin the cheaper one back (it was so slow) and keeping this one.

    Nice Unit., August 1, 2015

    This is a nice unit.

    What comes with the unit:
    1) Barebones computer base (no RAM, no HD, no WiFi/Bluetooth card)
    2) Power supply (large square box that plugs directly into the AC wall receptacle).
    3) VESA mounting plate
    4) Hardware for mounting RAM/SSD/Wifi cards)
    5) Rubber plugs to cover the enclosure screws.
    6) Various disks, instructions, manuals.

    External connectors/controls (read the specs for more detailed info).
    1) Front side – power button (with LED), HD LED
    2) Left side – two USB ports, multi-format card reader, (Kensington?) lock port
    3) Back side – power jack, two USB ports, full-size HDMI port, SATA connector,
    Ethernet Jack, Audio Jack.
    4) Right side – blank.
    There are air vents along the back and bottom of the unit.

    I installed a 2Gb memory module and a 64GB mSATA SDD card (no WiFi/Bluetooth card, though), and that all went quite easily. I installed the FreeBSD-9.3 operating system, which again went quite smoothly after changing the boot settings in the BIOS/UEFI menus. My usage so far has been fairly light, with the heaviest task being compiling Firefox and parts of the operating system. Under this load the external case became hotter than the room temperature, but nowhere near what I would call ‘hot’.

    The unit that I purchased appears to me to be defective, though, in that every few hours it puts up a message indicating that there is an ‘internal parity error’ in the CPU. This did not stop the computer from functioning, but it indicates to me that the particular CPU in that unit is a bit marginal, and I suspect that the situation will get worse and start to cause real problems over time (this is why I gave it four stars instead of five). Anyway, the computer is nice enough for my purposes that I’m having it replaced rather than just outright returned.

    Edits:
    I’m no longer sure what type of connector the ‘SATA’ connector is.
    Also, the replacement unit comes up with the same CPU parity errors as the first one, although I’m keeping the replacement unit and leaving my review as ‘4-Stars’.

    As the responsible person for IT at work I thought I will give this a try. Bought the barebones desktop and some ram and hard drive. Installed Windows 8 and MS office. I am now using this for a remote login for an offsite employee to access our accounting system. Very small footprint and rather quick. Highly recommended.
