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. Come's with a two month free subscription to McAfee Internet Security Suite. This is a great PC for media,& some light gaming. As of this date 8/22/13 I have had to refresh my PC twice. The PC is fine, the problem is Windows 8.
Summary: When I bought this computer I didn't expect much, but when I received it I immediately installed the extra 2gb ram and started using it and it shocked me for how good it was. I mean it really wasn't bad at all and windows 8 only took me 2 weeks to get used to it. The whole package was just not what I expected, it was even better and I play my games on the highest graphics it can go and it won't let up. this is one of the best and cheapest desktop replacement I got.
Summary: I have this for about 9 months now and it is really good for HTPC. Just add a TV tuner into the USB and you got a PVR with the Windows media center that came pre-installed. I use the included windows movie maker to edit out commercials to archive it. Nice touch with wireless keyboard, mouse, and TV controller included. Unit runs real quiet and low power. The wireless in the unit is a 2x2 and I can stream 1080 HD files from my NAS somewhere else in the house.
Summary: These puppies are great. I do part time IT work for friends and have installed a dozen now at law offices. Bloatware is a particular hindrance to these machines because they aren't super strong. With all the acer apps off however they run a bunch of productivity programs at the same time nicely. The biggest advantage is the bracket that will let you mount it on a vesa screen or anywhere else. Making desks nice and clutter free.
Summary: This is a nice quality HTPC. Spec's aren't that impressive, but it works fine for streaming movies. I did as another reviewer said: 1. Increase RAM to 4GB. The unit comes with 2GB and another 2GB is normally under $20 2. Go into BIOS and change memory buffer from AUTO to 512 (very important) 3. Delete the McAfee anti virus, and replace with Avast or Microsoft Security Resources. McAfee is a system hog and I can't see why anyone uses this garbage anyway.
Summary: I've been looking for a device like this for awhile. After researching on google, I found this product both on Amazon and also on other websites like Newegg. It does a smooth job of downloading movies videos, assuming you have a decent modem and internet service that can stream video well. It is essentially a mini computer that can be placed next to your TV. I put it next to our 55 inch mounted LG TV. It has so far worked well.
Summary: I bought the reconditioned model of the Revo, but I"d swear it was new. Cool looking computer. This is a very quick little computer with just 2GB of Ram. I put another 2GB'S in it for $12 from crucial.com and it really flies now. I use it in the garage and it picks up the wifi from my router with no problem. Video is great. Anyone having problems with Netflix should upgrade their router. It is not a Silverlite problem, its an outdated router problem. Highly recommended.
Summary: If you are thinking about upgrading, just do it! If you are one of the many folks using the REVO for a TV or home theater PC and you jumped on the REVO 3700 like I did, then you quickly found that the old REVO 3700 had some issues playing 1080 resolution movies. Even after upgrading to 4GB of RAM it didn't help. Well no more problems here. This new REVO RL70 has the horsepower to run them all. I also used my old memory out of my 3700's to upgrade the RL70 to 4GB of RAM.

Summary: I have a lot of PC's several of which I use for video purposes throughout my home. This is just an all around great little TV for your PC. It just barely, but does hold 1080 .avi movies. Everything else of course it handles without problem. The small included wireless mouse and keyboard are a nice benefit. The USB wireless stick is inside the mouse if you are wondering (took me a few minutes to work that one out).
