It's still baffling that some media centre PCs come in tower-cases with PC-centric features rather than set-top box features. That's why the Acer Aspi...

Some small hiccups during the display setup

The Acer Aspire iDea 510 makes a set-top box out of a computer, without losing many of the perks of a PC. It's reasonably easy to set up and it worked with a number of test displays. It performed well enough in our performance tests for a media centre,...

Bought & paid in November, received it in January. Had to chase acer to find out where it was a number of times, because they were not going to ring me!

Looks Good

Nothing but problems

Nice Little unit, works seemlessly on home wireless network, remote lacks full functionality although has the essentials...

Awsome unit for home theater, caters for all VDU's including projectors. Sleek design

no HDDVD /Blue ray player, although has inputs to support an external unit. Price RRP is terrible, way too expensive; they should have gone for a lower price

Whilst the unit is expensive, it's nice to have something with a good HDD and decent processor to sit back and just enjoy easily.

Good size HDD ; Has Alt-F10 recovery if things do go wrong ; Dual TV tuners ; Lots of connectivity for cables ; Ease of use, very easy to switch inputs

Price, of course ; Single HDMI output

Report lacks enough detail to judge usefulness / value, such as what processor(s), what logic core, what tuners, type of IR control, HDD brand / model. I would also describe this as an HTPC

Not enough detail

to hard to judge
