    ASUS VC66 reviews

    VivoMini VC66 Mini Desktop Computer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Desktop Replacement Great compact replacement for an older desktop. The Intel i7 7th gen processor is quick and runs cool. I ordered the model with the optical drive and 512 PCIe m.2 drive with the intention of adding a 1TB SSD drive for bulk storage. The literature and pictures indicate the M.2 drive is on the bottom level of the case, which should have left an available sata slot on the top level. However, when I opened it up, the top slot was already occupied by the M.2 drive. While it is label M.2, it is the size of an traditional SSD drive, so, I'm unable to add the 1TB SSD drive I already purchase. Other than that, every thing works well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Para aqueles que est?o confort?veis com Windows, sim. I use this computer for photo editing. After 7 years using MacOS, I came back to Windows with this Vivo. Despite the much higher configuration of the Asus Vivo (Core i7, 16 GB Ram and 512 MB SSD), the superior performance of the hardware conflicts with the inferiority of the operating system. In the first month of use, I was surprised twice with the system out of service. It was necessary to restore Windows 10. Would you recommend buying VIVO? For those who are comfortable with Windows, yes. I recommend it due to its price, processing capacity, interfaces and 4K output.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Would definitely buy again. I absolutely love this VivoMini VC66 Mini Desktop Computer. I puchased the 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core 16GB 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM Integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 512GB SSD Not only is the performance fantastic but the design is beautiful. I wanted a reliable computer that was an all rounder and it's exactly what I have. It exceeds my expectations and is the first SSD desktop I have owned. The service from B.H. was also fantastic. I could not believe that I ordered it and it arrived 3 days later here in Melbourne Australia. Will definitely shop here again. Thank you so much for also the advice on other products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great components, weak video I am a Mac fan, now x 5 years. I bought this to explore Windows 10, at a great price for components. It is great! Fast as expected from the processor and SSD (512 Gb). There are two problems, running it alongside a 2013 era MacBook Pro. The text graphics are washed out. Oddly, colors from web pictures display well. The other problem is that Microsoft Office in Win10 is almost bizarre vs. the Mac comparisons. Minor details like Bookmarks require a ... click, "Bookmarks", and there they are. In Outlook, there is no real way to show All Mail in one folder. I have three critical business email accounts I have to manually examine. Not the way business is done. The price is great, and this is only one in a first class of small box computers. Why they put a DVD drive on top is unknown. I don't recall the last time I used one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent price and hardware complement Excellent combination of powerful processor, RAM, and SSD which allows the system to boot amost as fast as an iPad. User note the included wireless keyboard and mouse have a USB wifi dongle stored inside the mouse. No mention of it in the included manuals. Must be extracted from the mouse and inserted into one of the computer USB ports. Computer cooling fan cycles as needed thermally. It is louder than a hard drive, and a bit louder than I would like. Given the powerful capabilities of the system in a very petite package, I feel it is an acceptable trade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big computer in a small package Everything works great except for the instructions.� Didn't know where the USB dongle was for the Mouse and keyboard.� It is in the mouse battery compartment.� Windows of course takes forever to update but that is not the computer's issue. Using my 50" 4k tv as the monitor through HDMI with no problems. Works great and would buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ASUS VivoMini VC66 512gb SSD, 16gb RAM This computer fits my needs. It boots up very quickly and can handle multiple programs running at the same time. I run two monitors and the VivoMini handles it fine. It has some room to upgrade and will probably add an M.2 drive in the future. It has plenty of output ports. I’m not crazy for Win10, but that’s not the computers fault. I use a keyboard and mouse that I have used for awhile and am happy with, so I can’t comment on the mouse and keyboard that came with the computer. All and all a good value for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best desktop Windows computer ever. Fast (i7) processor, 16 GB of fast (DDR4) memory, 512 GB primary SSD drive and a slot for a second (M.2 - incredibly fast) SSD drive. Great (small, attractive) form factor, built-in DVD drive. Plenty of USB 3 ports + HDMI. What's not to like? (Other than the fan is a little loud, but not annoyingly so.)
