Mixed bag

Larryorhi, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

A bit underpowered, and the "keyboard" is funky.

Andrew Flury "andrewhead", Amazon
12 February 2012
  • Summary: I got this as a HTPC primarily to play DivX and H.264 videos off the HD and streaming over the network (the blu-ray player was a nice touch, but I haven't really used it). It turned out to be noticeably choppy while playing back even 720P video connected to a 1080P display.

No documents, keyboard is hard to use

V. Thach, Amazon
3 September 2011
  • Summary: There no documents. Without it the keyboard is hard to figure out. I am still trying to figure out how to do a right-click. My suggestion is use your owe keyboard to do the setup/upgrade and connect the wireless network. The Acer software does not give an option to copy pictures from the SD-card.

  • Summary: I've had the little Revo since May now. Out of the box it is a really neat little machine. It looks good with the rest of the AV equipment. It looks more like a blueray player than a computer which is good for those that do not want big equipment. I think it is a very neat piece of equipment.

Oh so close ....

Aaron, Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this machine. The design is slim, sleek and kinda cool. It was up and running on my LCD wide screen within minutes with no hassles at all. That said, it does not have sufficient power for streaming media without issues.

Revo RL100

MrRoo, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: Works very well as a TV recorder (Freeview)and connects in homegroup easily (they all would as long as you have Win7) Quiet in operation and at the discounted price 4* value. Big but though, the touch pad/mouse is a nightmare, so bad it's nearly useless, I've thrown it at the settee a few times and...

Good pc, poor mouse

Tim, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • Summary: I have never owned a dedicated multi-media pc before and it has the functionality I require - although I am not in a position to compare it to others on the market. Especially impressed with its fast start up speed.

Pretty good, but not great

Bob Knapton "Bob", Amazon
8 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought the RL100 to replace my Sony media centre PC (VGX-TP3e) which was on its last legs due to the hard drive having overheated. Like another reviewer I had priced up homebrew solutions at well over £400 and decided that this offered good value in comparison.
