Acer Revo RL100-UR20P Review


PCs make great Blu-ray players, but Acer's Revo RL100-UR20P is the first Blu-ray-equipped PC we've seen that's thinner and smaller than most purpose-built Blu-ray players. If it played high-definition audio discs such as SACD and DVD-Audio, it would be...

Sexy design, incredibly thin, slick wireless trackpad/keyboard, and very quiet

Underpowered CPU, integrated graphics, and single-channel memory

The Revo can disappear inside your entertainment center, where it will operate either horizontally or vertically when mounted to its weighted stand. It has one USB 2.0 port with a tethered cover in front, along with a media card reader. There’s a tiny...

Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002


It's ironic that the Revo 100 looks so much like the Slim version of Sony's PlayStation 2 game console considering the Acer system is effectively in competition with the newer PlayStation 3. Like the PS2, the Revo 100 can stand on end, or you can...

The Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002 boasts a living-room-ready design, a unique touch-pad input device, and capable media features, including a Blu-ray drive, for a fair price.

This Nettop is not meant for gaming or general productivity because of a low-power CPU, and we'd feel better about its value if it had a 1TB hard drive.

Not everyone wants a living-room computer, but the Acer Revo 100 is one of the better low-cost HTPCs we've seen thanks to a wisely chosen feature set, its attractive design, and a mostly well-conceived input device.

Acer Aspire Revo RL100-UR20P: Svelte Media Machine


If you're looking for a small, sexy home-theater PC that's good at playing video of all kinds--but doesn't distinguish itself at anything else--check out the Acer Aspire Revo RL100-UR20P. This model is superslim at 1 inch thick, and it has a futuristic...

Impressive slide-out keyboard/touchpad ; Spacious hard drive

Notebook hardware limits performance potential

This desktop home-theater PC isn't a multimedia powerhouse, but it looks sexy and plays videos well.

Acer Revo RL100-UR20P


The touchpad can handle two finger swipes and holding your finger on the pad will invoke right-click. The keys beep reassuringly when you type, but there's no haptic feedback like on other virtual keyboards (i.e. smartphones and tablets). The bottom of...

Compact chassis. Wireless trackpad/keyboard combo. Decently sized 750GB hard drive. Blu-ray player. Can play 1080p online videos. HDMI port. local sharing kind of works

Low benchmark numbers. NASCAR-style stickers. External power brick. Lots of bloatware

For such a slim PC the Acer Revo RL100-UR20P is able to squeeze a Blu-ray player, a wireless trackpad/keyboard remote, and a slew of other features for an inexpensive, sub-$600 price.

Best all- around nettop


Extensive media capabilities, large hard drive, blu-ray Disc drive, sleek look, good everyday performance, wireless keyboard/touchpad combo slate

Poor at intensive tasks, like gaming, very limited upgrade capabilities

Acer Revo RL100 (UR20P)


Computer makers seem to have a hard time getting the component balance just right when it comes to compact, media-centric PCs. For example, back in February of 2011, we lamented the cramped 250GB hard drive in our review configuration of Zotac's tiny...

Super-sleek, attractive design ; Quiet operation

Sluggish laptop-class CPU ; Hybrid touch pad/keyboard looks great, but is a chore to use ; No TV tuner

This eye-popping home-theater PC impresses with a slim design and low price, but it's frustrating to use at times.

Acer Revo 100 review


The popularity of video downloading means that media players are becoming increasingly essential, even if your PC media source is in another room. But what if the PC is small enough to tuck under your TV? Enter Acer's super-compact Revo 100.

It’s a full-spec Windows PC in the space you might expect to allow for a media player

The single non-HD TV tuner is a bit old school

Acer Revo RL100 review


A super-slim entertainer that costs the earth

Quiet and slim ; Cutting-edge Blu-ray capabilities

Out-priced by almost everything ; Weak 3D and CPU

Acer Revo 100 review


With so many set-top boxes vying for your attention you have to ask what's wrong with just setting up a PC under your TV? Think about it for a moment, you get full Windows 7 power, no web limitations or codec problems, and no restrictions as to what...

Slim, quiet, easy to use, comes with keypad/trackpad controller, Blu-ray support

No online store, interface is basic, specialised config means you pay a premium

The Acer Revo 100 looks good, solves the problem of a boring keyboard and mouse in your living room
