ASUS Desktop Computer (M32AD-R14) Full Review

9 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

On average Asus medium processor core personal computers have good reviews as do all PCs built by Asus.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 2GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the M32AD.

Chart Edit

11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on PCs of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs that have been around for more than two years is 2TB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1GB to 6.2TB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 2,048 gigabytes, the Asus M32AD has a fairly big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the M32AD.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the M32AD is 710GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3TB. The Asus M32AD has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this computer to all the other 1TB total storage capacity personal computers and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP ProDesk 400 G1 (£359.99) is also worth considering.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on computers of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Asus M32AD is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the M32AD have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of comparable spec PCs that were launched more than two years ago range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 3,200MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the Asus M32AD has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and spec to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

It may also be worth considering one of the other HDD computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the 8300 SFF (£282.91), the Compaq Elite 8300 (£351.99), or the ProDesk 400 G1 (£359.99) all from HP.

If you want a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD), or the EliteDesk 800 G1 Mini (£356.92) (SSD) both from HP.

Very Small Internal Memory

The Asus M32AD has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest internal memory of comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the M32AD is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4GB memory PCs currently available including cheaper computers such as the 8300 SFF (£282.91), the Compaq Elite 8300 (£351.99), or the ProDesk 400 G1 (£359.99) all from HP.

If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Mini (£356.92) (8GB).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Supports Six Compatible Memory Cards

The number of compatible memory card supported by the Asus M32AD is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MMC", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "xD" are also supported by this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Only Three USB 2.0 Ports

The Asus M32AD is a three USB 2.0 port computer. Most of the other comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the M32AD have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 3.0 Ports

The Asus M32AD is a two USB 3.0 port personal computer. Most of the other computers that have been available for more than two years have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The average maximum internal memory of PCs of this type and age is 32GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The Asus M32AD has a quite small maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the M32AD.

Chart Edit

Only One PCI Express X1 Slot

Most desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the M32AD have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, including the Asus M32AD which has one PCI Express x1 slot.

Chart Edit

Only Four Processor Threads

Most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the M32AD have between four and seven processor threads, including the Asus M32AD which has four processor threads.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The maximum turbo frequencies of computers that have been available for more than two years range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.3 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Asus M32AD

Released Over Two Years Ago

This personal computer has been on the market for over two years.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.1 gigahertz, the Asus M32AD has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the M32AD.

If you would prefer a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (£350.00) (3.3GHz and cheaper), or the HP ProDesk 600 SFF (£344.95) (3.5GHz and cheaper).

There are other brands that have better specs for less money, but their component quality may not be as good. Other than that we have not had any problems with this PC so far
