Asus Vivo VM40B-S025K Nettop


Slim, small, nice design, quiet, great price

Not great performance with the copy of Windows 8 it ships with, just takes time to do things (think this is more a Win8 issue). When loaded with Windows 7 Pro it runs really nicely; great for basic computing like web, email, music, videos, etc

So so


I have had this device for about 4 months now and I'm not impressed. It does it's work but it takes fumbling around with it to get it started: unplug, plug back in, see if it works, that doesn't give me a confident feeling. Now it's won't turn off....

nice and small

turns on by itself, won't boot at all

nice little worker


I deliberately waited a bit before writing this review. New equipment always works nice in the beginning. This desktop is still running smoothly as ever and I like it a lot. The size is big asset, not the big bulky things on your desk any more! I am...

It needs some time before you can turn it on. If you disconnect it from the outlet (like I did to save money) it needs a minute before you can start it up

Great for my environment.


I purchased 20 of these systems over the past year strictly for RDP. I have retrofitted them with Win7. They work impressively, delivering just the horsepower I need, the network speed my environment requires, and so far have been largely reliable....

Small footprint, ideal for the microscopic offices I put these into

System is definitely speedier with an SSD ; There's an occasional power issue with these systems (see Bottom Line)

These boxes are cheap

Poor construction and/or manufacturing. I bought two and one of them immediately wouldn't start. There is something with the power supply or power button or whatever. The other one worked but is now starting to show the same problems

ASUS VivoPC-VM40B-02


Small with a slick form factor. Optical out is very useful depending on your home theatre setup

Computer is quite slow, it would benefit from a ssd drive. My atom based fanless Chinese htpc is actually much faster then this because it uses emmc memory instead of a slow 5400 rpm hard drive ; After 4 months mine developed an extremely annoying...

I had this VivoPc for 4 month until it started to have boot up problems. I contacted ASUS and started a 2 month email troubleshooting process, which finally ended in them wanting me to RMA it. After the VivoPC would not started at all. They would not...

Don't waste your money on this piece of junk


Don't waste your money on this piece of junk. The unit had problem with power button or power supply. I had to unplug/replug adapter in order for the unit to booth up. I don’t think there any issue with the power adapter. I test it with my ASUS laptop...

ASUS please put a recall on this produce. It is a piece of junk. It's doesn't work

ASUS VivoPC-VM40B-02


Newegg should subject this reseller to a lot of extra scrutiny. No reputable, competent, and certified refurbisher would ship a system with malware preloaded.

Small, low power, performs the required task (convenience store bill pay service)

Windows ; It came preloaded with vosteran malware. That carp made me answer the same 15 questions 10 times before I could DL and install MBAM to get rid of it. I was about ready to use it for target practice. I wasted an entire day getting it to...

interesting, but check carefully


I wanted to like this. Between the power problems and odd sporadic slowdown (I'd type 30 characters in a DOS command box, and see 15 ... and 5 seconds later the rest would appear ... hardware? or Windows 8.1?), I returned it. If I could pick from units...

Small package, easy to fit into crowded desk/office. Inexpensive. Had USB 3 in addition to USB 2

My unit had faulty power supply, noisy fan (louder than display model), and booted up with flaky video about 7% of the time. Power supply problem resulted in inability to awake/power-on by pressing button, had to unplug/replug adapter to wake up (not...
