Asus ET2701 review
The separate subwoofer adds nothing to a run-of-the-mill all-in-one that is bettered by cheaper rivals

Why are all of these 27" all in ones only coming with Full HD displays?

ASUS all in one pc desktop poor quality and tech support
This is about the 27 inch all in one computer with model number ET2701INTI. The ASUS pc and support sucks.
First about an ASUS software pre installed that is not working and when I contacted ASUS support they have no idea about the software. I went back to the store where I purchased the unit and they have confirmed that it is an ASUS pre installed software. I don't need that video software so I just ignore this.
Next, the subwoofer which is defective. After 3 months of purchase I returned it to the store where I purchased it and after a month they told me it has to be returned to ASUS according to advice by ASUS. I phoned ASUS then and ASUS replied to me it is not covered by warranty so they can't replace or fix it.
Now the wireless keyboard after just 4 months that comes up with is not working anymore. I was told by ASUS support, I have to return the whole unit, the 27 inch all in one pc, shipped to them, even though only the keyboard is defective. The shipping and handling cost back and forth, I will be the one to pay. Come to think of it, the unit is heavy and I will shoulder the cost. And it does not make sense shipping the whole unit when the only defective part is keyboard. With HP, Dell, they would replace the defective part and not the whole unit.
CONSUMERS BEWARE: DO NOT BUY FROM ASUS.
