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.

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.

Replacement HTPC

C. S. Heim, Amazon
3 March 2012
  • Summary: I built my first HTPC back in 2004. We have movies, pictures and music available, but its primary use was as a PVR using MediaPortal as the interface to a SiliconDust HDHomerun TV tuner. Sadly, a capacitor blew on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard? Build a new HTPC? Neither, after reading plenty of reviews on standalone PVRs I decided to get the Revo RL100. I'm glad I did. Setup was easy. HDMI to the TV, RJ45 to the Revo, toslink optical to the receiver.

Acer Revo RL100-U1002

M. Stone, Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: I got this to be a HTPC. For that purpose, it works great. I did not bother with the included keyboard/mouse. I stream from the web and my home network, wired. My own videos and Netflix feeds work fine on my 42" LG 1080P TV, everything scales nicely. It does not have a problem with the HD streams, which I was a little concerned about. So far, I am pleased with this PC. Small, quiet and fills my needs nicely. Update: After having had this a couple of months.

Pretty Sweet Little Setup

Richard S. Margolin, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: Very pleased with this purchase. Has fully enabled us to shut off DirectTV, which cost us about $115/month. So this thing effectively pays for itself in about 3 months or so. I'll start with the positive then discuss the negatives that prevented me from giving it 5-stars. Positives: Very small, thin, sleek design. The popout touchpad/keyboard is a smart feature that works very well. We have ours connected to a 45", 1080p Vizio via HDMI.

Everything I needed in an HTPC for the Price

The Raders, Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: I am very impressed with this item. It is exactly what I was looking for in a HTPC. My primary concern was for streaming video because I have cut the cable and now stream all of my television over the internet. Streaming HD Video is clean, smooth and vivid, depending of course on the quality of the video being streamed.

Solid Form Fitting HTPC

NVIII, Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: The other reviews here are pretty spot on. I would just like to add to the chorus of "look for an alternative wireless keyboard" The included one looks nice but does not function well and will frustrate your experience

Just what I was looking for!

Reviewer, Amazon
24 September 2011
  • Summary: Acer Revo RL100-U1002 Desktop Computer (Black) Acer designed this specifically for being a HTPC. It's sleek, stylish, and reasonably fast, just don't expect to play any 3D games on it. My setup: Acer RL 100 running XBMC, Pioneer VSX 1021-K receiver, Polk Audio TL-250 surround speakers, Inifity PS212 Subwoofer and Samsung 46 inch LED TV. Acer -> Receiver -> TV Acer recognized the Receiver, just make sure you enable surround sound within Windows to send sound within HDMI.
