    ASUS VC66 reviews

    VivoMini VC66 Mini Desktop Computer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Nice I bought the VC66B016Z model.� This is loaded with i7, 512 Gb SSD, 16 Gb of ram, DVD, and Intel 630 graphics.� I bought this after my 8 year old Gateway i3 tower died on me.� The difference is unbelievable.� I had installed a graphics card in the old Gateway and was worried about the Intel i7 chip with it's built in graphics.� Don't worry!� The graphics on my HD screen are so much better with this computer.� I use this computer for general photo editing, record keeping, and finances.� I'm still trying to get used to Windows 10 from Windows 7 but almost have it like I want.� I am the Chairman of the City Planning Commission here in Midland City, Alabama, and type up all the minutes and agenda's on this.� The only thing Asus ought to change is the SD card reader is on the back (should be on the front) and the plug for the speakers is on the front (none on the back).� Still, for the money, this is a great mini computer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and thinking about getting another for home. I use this PC at work and it is fantastic, great value, very fast, and compact size, about time they got all these features in this form factor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! So fast. Very compact and very space efficient, both in component layout and overall size. I upgraded the RAM myself, very easy to do by following the instructions on the ASUS youtube video. In case anyone is wondering (as I was before ordering), when configured with 8GB RAM, it comes with a single 8GB stick rather than two 4GB's. Also note that it takes SO-DIMM rather than regular size DIMM (I accidentally ordered the wrong size at first). One concern I had read about prior to purchase was the fan noise. I can definitely hear it when it kicks on, but doesn't really bother me. At least part of the reason it is more noticeable is because it sits on my desktop (being such a small unit) rather than under my desk in a cabinet like my old tower computer was. If there is a negative, I will say that the rubber feet could be secured better. You need to pry them off to remove the screws if you're going to open up the case. They remain tethered by a little strap that sticks into the case itself, but one of these fell off the screw head it was lasso'd too. Not very secure and kind of annoying to put back on. Would be better if they were tethered more securely such as with glue or at least more tightly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive power in a tiny form factor. Still new to the computer but installation went smoothly and easily.
