Summary: I bought this machine to use iPlayer and others on the TV. It has done that very competently but to my amazement it plays back HD video files off my Canon 5D Mk2 (1080P quicktime) without a shudder or a jolt, something that my 3.5 year old Macbook Pro that cost me nearly £2000 will not do.
Summary: I simply use this pc to watch on demand television, it is placed behind my monitor and only has one browser window open at a time really - it of course manages with this fine, and I am happy paying the money for this. There are some problems though - it comes with a mammoth amount of bloatware!
Summary: This system is great for any basic use, and is absolutely silent and tiny, as well as being reasonably powerful. The only niggle I had was with standby. After it's been on for a while, if I try to put it to standby, I get a blue screen, but I can work around that. Highly recommended to ANYONE!
Summary: This little gadget represents really good value and does what it says it does with aplomb. The best value media centre player I have come across. I have hooked it up to my Sony 40" LCD TV and it works a treat straight out of the box.
Summary: I was thinking about spending a grand on a Mac. But in the end, I decided to go for this dinky little machine and spend the savings on a road bike. I'm really glad I did. I work in the IT industry, so when I get home all I want to do is surf the net, check my e-mails and write the occasional Word...
Summary: So long as you realise this is not meant for heavy duty applications and you want something to use for surfing, viewing media and basic office type work, this is a great buy and great value. Works well with wondows 7 too which is the first decent OS from microsoft in an age.
Summary: The Acer Revo is a fantastic little Nettop and runs Windows 7 perfectly happily. I purchased mine to act as an Internet TV which should have been fairly simple. Unfortunately, this heavily relies on Adobe Flash, which basically sucks. I totally understand why Apple won't allow it on their devices.
Summary: Good points - Surprisingly small Quiet, can't hear any fan Windows 7 includes Media Centre ION video can do 1080p 1920x1080p eSATA and 6xUSB ports Cons Can't quite do smooth HD playback with BBC iPlayer desktop Loaded with bloatware and 60-day trails, took about 3 hours to clear Disk comes with a C:...
Summary: Wanted a PC to connect to my TV. Aspire Revo 3610 seemed to fit the requirement. I have had it for five weeks now and and I am glad I chose this one. It is hardly noticeable in living room. Detected my home hub straight away and I was connected to the internet within minutes of swiching the Acer on.
Summary: This is a small gem of a PC - It has the smallest(!) processor, the Atom, and is a very compact package. Wireless mouse and keyboard, allied with Wi-fi network, mean few trailing wires, though it has enough USB ports for anything you need to add - like a DVD-ROM, which is rather useful, if not a...
