Good HTPC

Mack_B, Amazon
26 May 2014
  • Summary: This slimline pc has performed well as my HTPC. It handles dual boot of Windows 8 and Linux without a hiccup. I'm usually an Intel chip buyer, but for my application of this machine the embedded dual core AMD processor has held up nicely. The 750GB HDD is more than plenty as I back up everything on a file server. Though it is good to have the extra on board storage if I ever need it. The on board graphics pushes 1080p to my TV seamlessly.

Good one

Wiccy, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: I kind of overworked this pc, but it's lasted a good while despite it. I've used Paint tool sai on it and a bunch of other programs. Overheats easily, but as I said, I know I'm overworking it, and only because my previous pc died and I needed one for school. If you're planning on just using it for basic home pc stuff, internet and watching movies, it's definitely a good one to have for the price!

  • Summary: The built in keyboard broke after 1 year and at 2 years the fan is running so hard that I cant hear the tv shows that its playing, but overall its a great little computer for streaming media onto my 50 inch with surround sound

Mixed bag

Larryorhi, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: Got this last year to use with 32" tv as monitor and for streaming. Okay for movies but doubt it would work well w/games. Pop-out touchpad/keyboard is a pain to use. Bought wireless keyboard w/built in touchpad to use instead. A couple of general comments related to, but not specifically about the Revo: 1. Most tvs do not work well as monitors. 32" not big enough unless you want to sit 3 feet from the screen, and 1080p not high enough res for a bigger screen. 2.

Did not function properly

Truth Teller..., Amazon

  • Summary: I returned this product as this was not helping me in anyway to have a good quality picture and sound. Probably, I might have got a defective item. My friend uses same thing and it works just great for years now.

Great Music Server

Blitzer "Blitzer", Amazon
17 April 2013
  • Summary: I upgraded to this unit after using a Revo 3610 for several years. It's primary function is as a music file server using the optical link to a separate DAC. The RL 100 has more memory and storage than the previous unit and with Win 7 it serves my needs quite well. I use it in the horizontal position. The hide-away key board is a compact, convenient feature. My only CON is Acer's consistently poor documentation.

Solid media PC, a little weak at hardware

Michael Wieland, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought the PC for my living room TV to stream movies and watch DVDs. The PC performs in a solid way although some stronger hardware would not harm here. To my opinion ACER could have added one more Inch in hight and therefore fit some more torque into the thing. The wireless keyboard that comes with it is sweet and pretty usefull. For Internet surfing it is too complicated as you always have to switch between mouse and keyboard function.

Great Unit To Add to Any High End Entertainment System

psgd2004, Ebay
8 December 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a PC to go with my entertainment system but I didn't want a full size computer. Having several digital copies of my movies I was looking for something full featured with Media Center. This unit works great, fits right in with my entertainment system, has HDMI, USB. I couldn't have asked for more.

15 November 2012
  • Summary: I REALLY wanted this to be my end-all solution for a HTPC.Looks sharp,has a nice looking/futuristic feel to it(along w/ the included "remote") After my initial set up(deleting un-needed software,updating EVERYTHING-Including Silverlight)I set it up to fit my tv,using the Nvidia graphics,I installed XBMC (my usual go to for entertainment)and tried out Windows Media Center (my other go -to)My first initial thoughts were,hmm seems like its a little sluggish.After messing...
