Acer Chromebox CXI review

 

A plug and play friendly Chrome in a box

Extremely petite ; Plenty of ports ; Surprisingly great performance

Inconveniently placed power and headphone jack ; Loud fan

The Acer Chromebox CXI can turn any monitor or HDTV into a capable cloud-based computer.

ACER Chromebox CXI3 review: One of the best Chromebox computers you can buy

 

Small, speedy and surprisingly well connected, this is the best-realised Chromebox yet

Superb computer ; Great performance ; Incredible design

Terrible mouse and keyboard ; Storage is low by PC standards

The only other potential point of concern would be storage, but 64GB is only low by PC standards. Make proper use of cloud-based apps, as intended, and it’s much easier to live with than the 32GB offered on cheaper Chromeboxes. You can always add more...

Acer Chromebox CXI

 

I have reviewed several Chromebooks before, they are small laptops running the Chrome operating system. This however was the first Chromebox I have reviewed it is a full featured PC all you need to add is a panel via HDMI or DisplayPort.

Review: Acer Chromebox CXI

 

Desktop PCs may be dying, and Chrome OS may be the new kid on the block that is very slowly gaining traction in a world already overpopulated with laptops and[...]

The Acer ChromeBox CXI combines a few worlds: PC, ChromeCast and Chrome OS. It does so elegantly. The only thing that may go against it could be the price. However, you get a lot for your money.

Acer Chromebox CXI-i38GKM

 

The Acer Chromebox CXI-i38GKM packs a Intel Core i3 processor and 8GB of RAM, which is great for video conferencing, but makes it's too expensive for a Chrome-based desktop.

Decent feature set. Includes keyboard and mouse, as well as stand and mounting bracket. Performance is enhanced with an Intel Core i3-4030U processor.

Only 16GB of local storage. Pricey for a Chromebox.

Conclusion The Acer Chromebox CXI-i38GKM offers faster boot times, smoother performance, and better video chatting capabilities than the average Celeron-powered Chromebox, but that improvement comes at a price, and at $400 the Acer Chromebox CXI-i38GKM...

Acer Chromebox CXI-4GKM

 

The Acer Chromebox CXI-4GKM is a good pick for casual Web-focused users who don't need a full Windows desktop.

Solid performance. Decent feature set. Includes keyboard and mouse, as well as stand and mounting bracket.

Limited local storage. Relatively more expensive than competitors.

Conclusion All in all, the Acer Chromebox CXI-4GKM is everything we expect from a Chrome device. It's inexpensive, easy to use, and it easily supports the casual use for which the Chrome is tailored. It does come in at a slightly higher price than the...

Acer Chromebox CXI3 Review: The Best Chrome Desktop Yet

 

The Acer Chromebox CXI3 may be the best desktop version of Chrome OS available. While it's not hard to be a big fish in such a small pond (only a handful of Chromeboxes have ever come to market), the CXI3 still stands apart thanks to its solid...

Compact design can be mounted or stashed out of sight ; Includes plenty of ports ; Has excellent performance ; Runs cool

Limitations of Chrome OS ; High price

The Acer Chromebox CXI3 is an excellent mini PC that runs Google's Chrome operating system. But even with a solid design and great performance, it's a lot to pay for a limited desktop experience.

Acer Chromebox CXI -- small package, largely satisfying [Review]

 

Everybody has different needs, so it is impossible to say one operating system is better than another. Sure, you can state which OS is best for

Overall, the little box has a lot of power and should meet the needs of many home users. Hell, many business users may find the Chromebox CXI useful too. If you live in the browser, like many people nowadays, Chrome OS is a great choice -- there are a...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great while it works.

 

I would not hesitate to purchase Acer products, if they are monitors. My past purchases of Acer Monitors have been good. On another hand, my experience with Acer Chromebooks was bad. The first Acer 15" chromebook had bad usb port. The second one lasts...

. Design and functionality. I mounted it with the included vesa adapter to the back of an Acer 24" monitor. The setup looks great. . Plenty of connectivity with 4 USB3, SD card reader, HDMI, etc . . . . Acer Tech Support was quick to connect to.

. While I was using the second time, the screen suddenly went off, then came back with some error and a request for inserting a recovery disk. I went to a great length of times to create the recovery disk. Two windows 10 computers would download &...

Acer CXI-i38GKM (DT.Z07AA.002)

 

Drives a 4k display just fine for static images

Wifi is weak. Sitting next to this Chromebox is a Chromebook from a different manufacturer, which has no trouble connecting, and gets perfectly usable throughput. Even my smartphone connects to the wifi just fine from the same location. This thing...
