Acer Revo 70

 

Compact, Excellent regular keyboard with plenty key depth, Innovative remote, Relatively inexpensive

Isolated issues when setting up

Bearing in mind that the model we reviewed was an engineering sample, we suspect that the version available in stores will be free of the glitch we initially encountered. More importantly though, we dare say that the Revo challenges the assumption that...

HDMI Problems Lousy customer support

 

I wished this worked out of the box without a hassle it looked really cool. I'm sure I could get it working with some tech support but I'm not going to start blind firing with drivers ect. or soldiering anything.

Cool looking slick interface, comes with awesome minikeyboard and wireless setup

hdmi port non-operational on arrival. dc power on the port non fuctioning, would not recognize on multiple tv's vga port works fine though ; customer service SUCKS in fact Acer doesn't support this device. I'll be sending it back to newegg. here is...

Great compact powerful unit! Very quiet, Well worth $339

Lots of junk software included, but not a big deal to remove. 4Gigs of RAM would have been nice

Brilliant product. I have no complaints. The pre-installed os was Free-DOS, which I simply ignored and installed Ubuntu 13.4 instead using the Linux Live USB creator. It worked without a problem.

Acer Revo RL70 DT.SMGEK.014

 

A really fine replacement for my very large desktops. So pleased I have since purchased a Revo, RL80 with Win 8 installed.

This model only has FreeDos OS installed and I am unable to load an OS onto this Revo. Have asked for help from the manufacturer and also the supplier but without a response. When I have overcome this problem, I have no doubt I will be most pleased....

Acer Revo RL70 DT.SMGEK.014

 

Rate 1 for battery life as it doesn't have (and isn't meant to have a battery). Well specced for price, very quiet. I'm running it as a simple home server with OwnCloud for sharing and backup of photos/music, and its definitely up to the job.

Free dos is a bit off an odd choice for OS, would have preferred a pre-installed Linux flavour, although it was very easy to put Ubuntu on myself.
