12 Reasons For

Asus Personal Computers Have Good Reviews

Asus is one of the better rated PC brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Asus also has good ratings for its few processor core computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Asus UN42 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the UN42 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Asus UN42 has a faster storage speed than most few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec computers that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of this age and spec.

Amongst comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Asus UN42 has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most few processor core computers that have been available for more than a year. The worst internal memory type of all computers that are a similar age to the UN42 is DDR3-SDRAM and the best is DDR4-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Supports Four Compatible Memory Cards

The Asus UN42 has a greater number of compatible memory card than most desktop computers of this age and type. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by PCs of this age and type. The compatible memory cards "MMC", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this Asus desktop computer.

Chart Edit
