Unreliable garbage. - 10/22/2015 19:19:39

Rating: 1 of 5 Stars! [1 of 5 Stars!]

Available in black.

- the unit is not backwards compatible: it cannot read CDs or DVDs. - the unit is moody: sometimes it refuses to play a disc it has previously played without issue. - the unit is slow: it can take up to 30 seconds to spool up and identify a disc. - resuming a movie results in a horrible, loud electronic crunch from the speakers.

It was not this bad at first. The problems didn't start appearing until after a few months had gone by. Between this and an Asus Nexus 7 (also bought at Canada Computers) that died 3 months after the warranty expired I'm never buying another Asus product again.
