  • Summary: There are plenty of companies offering ION based netbooks and nettops these days. Most of them have very similar spec sheets and thus the price becomes the only deciding factor. ASRock has taken a different approach with the ION 330HT-BD. This high-end unit costs more than most other ION nettops on the market, but delivers features well worth the price. The most obvious aspect is the BluRay drive - something other nettops lack.
  • Pros: Excellent set of features, Can easily be overclocked a whooping 500 MHz, Allows for second HDD to be installed for RAID configuration, Easily upgradable due to standard components used, BD-ROM with DVD-RW functionality included, Very compact, MCE remote included, Internal CIR receiver for remote, Can be had in black or white, eSATA in the rear, Can play 1080p video easily, Atom 330 processor, Very low power consumption with a peak of around 35W, Internal fan adequatel...
  • Cons: No front USB connectivity, Low noise, but high pitched, No wireless Keyboard/mouse included, Piano finish paint job may not fit well into your home theater setup, 5400 RPM Drive may be too slow for some scenarios

Asrock Ion 330HT-BD review

21 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Nvidia's Ion chipset and a dual core Intel Atom 330 processor has proved a winning combination in recent months, a good example being Asus's Eee Box EB1012 . Asrock's new nettop has the same core hardware, but it’s the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive that really had us excited. The Ion 330HT-BD is the first nettop we've seen that can play Blu-ray movies.

  • Conclusion: Si la primera versión del ASRock ION 330 nos pareció una plataforma ideal para el mercado del HTPC, esta nueva versión dispone de funcionalidades que se echaban en falta en la versión anterior, manteniendo el tamaño y mejorando el ahorro de energía eléctrica, gracias a las certificaciones Energy Star 5.0 y EuP 2.0.
  • Pros: Unidad Blu-Ray, Conectividad mejorada, Mando a distancia MCE incluido, Reproduce Video HD a la perfección, OverClocking y Arranque Instantáneo, Bajo consumo energético
  • Cons: No tiene lector de tarjetas, No tiene USB frontales

  • Conclusion: For god ordens skyld prøver vi også at afspille lidt Flash video indhold fra YouTube, da YouTube for ganske nyeligt har lanceret deres service med mulighed for video i både 720p og 1080p high definition opløsninger. Konkret prøver vi med Pixars lille kort-film Burn-E i 1080p format, og her må vi hurtigt konstatere at CPU belastningen ryger op på over 90% og afspilning er temmelig hakkende og slet ikke værd at se på.

  • Conclusion: De ASRock ION 330HT-BD is een erg interessant product. Dankzij het ION-platform is het apparaat in staat om 1080p-content af te spelen, terwijl het maar een beperkte omvang heeft. Ook het energieverbruik en de Blu-ray-speler zijn pluspunten. Daarnaast bestaat de machine uit componenten van hoge kwaliteit en is er standaard al een WLAN-kaart en een eSATA-poort.
  • Pros: speelt vloeiend 1080p-content af;, compact formaat;, strak uiterlijk;, componenten van goede kwaliteit;, laag energieverbruik;, eSATA-poort;, afstandsbediening.
  • Cons: maakt veel geluid;, weinig software (optioneel met windows7 premium Home verkrijgbaar);, geen USB-poorten aan de voorkant;, prijs.
