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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
(More like 3 1/2 stars) This is MY personal experience w/ this..

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...
Summary: the revo 100 is a great machine. all the reviews saying that it is slow and under powered are very misleading. it may be underpowered if you are trying to play hard core games or editing video. but it works more than fine for what i believe is its intended purpose which is web surfing and streaming. i use this pc for school as well. works great with microsoft office however you will want a full size wireless mouse and keyboard. the revo 100 streams very well.
