11 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Personal Computers

Few processor core computers produced by Asus have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just few processor core computers) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

4.3 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This personal computer supports a 4.3 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on desktop computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

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

Most PCs of a similar age and type to the VC62B have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Asus VC62B which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Asus VC62B has a newer internal memory type than most desktop computers of this age and type. This desktop computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most personal computers of a similar spec and age to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The internal memory type of all similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the VC62B ranges from DDR3-SDRAM (worst) to DDR4-SDRAM (best).

Chart Edit

Supports Four Compatible Memory Cards

The Asus VC62B has a greater number of compatible memory card than most PCs of this spec and age. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by computers that have been available for more than a year. The compatible memory cards "MMC", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

The Asus VC62B is a four USB 3.0 port computer.

Chart Edit

Four Processor Threads

The Asus VC62B is a four processor thread computer. Most of the other PCs of this age and spec only have between two and three processor threads.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Asus VC62B is more than most computers that have been around for around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this computer.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of comparable spec PCs that came out more than a year ago is 4.3kg. With a weight of only 1.1 kilograms, the Asus VC62B is one of the lighter comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the VC62B amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Quite Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The Asus VC62B has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VC62B. Few processor core computers that were released one year ago have max internal memory supported processors of between 4GB and 64GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 27GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the VC62B is 100MHz, the fastest is 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 300MHz. At only 200 megahertz, the Asus VC62B has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the VC62B.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

At only 1,000 megahertz, the Asus VC62B has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the VC62B have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The Asus VC62B has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 1.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec. Across all the personal computers of a similar type and age to the VC62B the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.9GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.8GHz.

PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the Asus GR8 (2GHz and higher rated), or the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (2.2GHz and higher rated).

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on few processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other HDD computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus VM62N, and the Zotac ID91 Plus is also worth considering.

Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the Chromebox (SSD), the CN60 (SSD), or the GR8 (SSD) all from Asus which also has a higher rating.

(Verified Purchase)

It is a rare purchase that gives 100% satisfaction. This is one of them...

Small, memory and hard drives easily accessible, two 2.5" hdd bays
Very inexpensive compared to buying a motherboard and CPU separately
5th gen BraswellBroadwell architecture instead of the aging BayTrailHaswell systems we see everywhere
Run incredibly cool
With 4 cores this is surprisingly beefy
Realtek nic
Lower Mhz cores means single thread performance isn't as good as other processors
Only PCIe 1x so no older NIC's, no full video cards, no dual NIC cards, etc
Doesn't run ESXi or Sophos out of the box. Xenserver works great for Sophos though
My only gripe other than a defective board on MSI's part is with Newegg's returns. It is easy enough to get one started. They were quite willing to help and the shipping was free. So I liked that a lo
