Summary: Problems with HDMI output dropping signal all the time. I bought this to use as a media center, but the screen goes blank for a few seconds several times during a movie - sometimes 4-5 times in a minute.
Ultimately too low-power and sluggish; sometimes just doesn't stream videos

Summary: This review is for the Acer RL70 "nettop" computer, which I purchased in 2012. I returned it after it failed to meet advertised expectations. PROS - Quiet operation - Good looking design - Wireless full-sized mouse and keyboard included CONS - I appreciated the concept of a low budget "nettop" for...
Summary: I really like this little machine. It's not terribly fast, but it's still quite capable. After uninstalling all the Acer stuff and most of the Windows 8 apps, and after turning off extra Windows 8 animations, and it works very well.
Summary: Problems with it from when I first installed it. Freezes, slows to a crawl for no reason. I ordered it to replace an older machine, but didn't immediately set it up; took me a couple weeks to start playing with it.
Summary: The computer has a small form factor as well as the ability to connect to HD televisions through HDMI. It's great as HTPC and it can play some light games. I occasionally play League of Legends on this computer, and I can get frame rates up to 60 with a drop to about 45 on all the settings on low.
Summary: This was a pain from the get go. I never have any trouble with my computers communicating with my TV and I had issue after issue with this one. There were constant issues with the pages being pixeled. The page load was slow.
Summary: Good product but limited capabilities! It works great as a Media PC, but not very good definition (at least in a 54' LED TV) if writing or regular web surfing. Great to download a movie/TV show and watch it. Comes with Win8 and refuses to install Win7.
Summary: This by far was the best upgrade that I have ever been through. It took less than a hour to get my Revo hooked up to my HDTV & to be up & running. There was no hassle getting Google Chrome up as my home page, & the tiles are very easy to navigate.
