Acer Revo 100 review

24 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The popularity of video downloading means that media players are becoming increasingly essential, even if your PC media source is in another room. But what if the PC is small enough to tuck under your TV? Enter Acer’s super-compact Revo 100. With full Windows 7 functions, and all the browsing and codec-downloading abilities that implies, the Revo would make a superb media player.

Acer Revo 100 review: A small and stylish HTPC that can process high-definition video, including Blu-ray

Good Gear Guide.au
19 June 2011
  • Summary: The Acer Revo 100 is a tiny home-theatre PC quipped with an AMD CPU and NVIDIA ION graphics that can be used to process Full HD video. It's small and neat and only features essential connectivity options. However, we think it's way too expensive.
  • Pros: Small and neat, Built-in Wi-Fi and digital TV tuner, Can process Full HD video
  • Cons: Too expensive, Doesn't ship with a remote control, Doesn't ship with a proper keyboard

Acer Revo 100

What Hi-Fi?
16 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Boy, did we agonise over this one. Acer ’s Revo 100 is in many ways the most properly thought-out media centre PC we’ve seen; but it’s got a couple of crucial flaws that mean we just can’t recommend it. What does that equate to? Well, sadly, the most positive two-star review you’re ever likely to read. This is smaller than the smallest standalone Blu-ray player, yet it boasts a 3D Blu-ray drive, 500GB hard drive, dual-core processor, TV tuner and 2GB of RAM.
  • Pros: Compact, ingenious touchpad controller, intuitive software, good pictures and sound
  • Cons: Doesn’t do HD audio as standard, 3D seemingly incompatible with current TVs

Expert Review

6 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Just when we thought the media centre PC had died and gone to (most deservedly) hell, here comes Acer with the Revo 100. And it’s everything that the media centre hulks of yesteryear weren’t. It’s slim and small in every way, thanks to today’s wider availability of low-profile componentry. It addresses the nightmare of sofa-based PC interaction by having a slide-out pad-style remote, which has two modes, switched by a blue button top right.

Pocket Lint
20 December 2010
  • Excerpt: With so many set-top boxes vying for your attention you have to ask what’s wrong with just setting up a PC under your TV? Think about it for a moment, you get full Windows 7 power, no web limitations or codec problems, and no restrictions as to what you can and can’t do.
  • Pros: Slim, quiet, easy to use, comes with keypad/trackpad controller, Blu-ray support,
  • Cons: No online store, Clear.fi interface is basic, specialised config means you pay a premium

Acer Revo RL100 Tastatur und Full HD Video Demo in XBMC (Video)

6 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Bevor ich den Acer Revo RL100 mit DVD Laufwerk und AMD K325 Prozessor zurück gegeben habe, musste natürlich noch ein Video von den Grundfunktionen des Players gedreht werden. Auch wie der Player mit Full HD Avatar in 12GB und mehreren Tonspuren nach der Installation von XBMC und der Übertragung über ein Gigabit Lan Kabel bewältigt wurden hier bei demonstriert. In den letzten drei Wochen konnte ich wirklich wenig Mängel an dem System feststellen.

Test: Acer Revo 100

2 February 2011
  • Summary: Acers minimaskin är ingen dator för dig som gillar att bygga själv. Nej, Revo 100 är en mediedator på burk. En färdig lösning som fokuserar på att leverera underhållning i ditt vardagsrum. Och det gör den bra.
  • Pros: Stilren mediemaskin med Blu-ray-spelare och smart tangentbord.
  • Cons: Relativt få anslutningar, svår att uppgradera på egen hand. DVB-T-kortet har ej stöd för HD.
