Acer Revo One RL85 Mini PC Review

 

Desktop midget. Acer's Revo One is a Mini Desktop PC designed primarily for the home user. The PC tries to attract customers with lots of storage, good performance, and an up-to-date arrangement of physical ports. How the review model differs from...

Dimensions, Noise level, Port selection, System performance, Design of chassis, Expandability mass storage, 4k resolution at 60 Hz using the DisplayPort

Only one RAM module (single-channel mode), No USB port up front, Power switch not easy to reach, Material scratches easily

Mini-form-factor PCs are becoming more and more popular. Thanks to the latest mobile technology, the new systems are versatile, quiet, and frugal and are able to replace many old-fashioned desktop PCs.

Acer Revo One (RL85-UR45)

 

Acer's Revo One small-form-factor (SFF) desktop packs enough power to handle content-creation tasks, and offers expansion options that are unheard of in such a compact PC.

Compact chassis. Expandable storage. Core i5 processor. Supports 4K and 1080p video. 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Includes personal cloud software.

Lots of bloatware. Chintzy wireless keyboard. Can't upgrade RAM. Revo Suite remote app is Android-only.

Conclusion The Acer Revo One (RL85-UR45) offers a surprising amount of power, expandability, and connectivity in a very compact package. It's one of the few SFF desktops with two additional hard drive bays, and it has a powerful Intel Core i5 processor...

Acer Revo One review

 

Small desktop PCs are enjoying something of a renaissance, thanks to systems such as HP's Pavilion Mini and Intel's Compute Stick . Along with the standard bearer of the category, Apple's Mac Mini , these computers appeal to both aesthetic minimalists...

The Acer Revo is an attractive mini desktop with plenty of storage for media files, which can easily play 4K video.

Basic streaming boxes or even other media-friendly PCs cost less. The included keyboard and mouse feel cheap, and most gaming is out of the question.

The Acer Revo is a do-it-all media-friendly PC that can fit anywhere.

And it's those streaming media boxes that have kept media center PCs on the defensive for the past several years. For under $100, a Roku or Amazon Fire TV can bring Netflix, Hulu and other cloud-based media-playing apps to any den or living room. To...

Acer Revo One RL85-UR45 Review and Ratings

 

One of a very few PCs we'd call cute, the Acer Revo One packs a fully equipped Core i5 desktop into a tiny package. Its two open modular drive bays let it double as a teensy but roomy server. There are cheaper options, but few let you fit so much...

Like the TARDIS, it's bigger inside than it appears ; Dual 2.5-inch drive bays provide lots of internal storage potential ; Attractive, quirky design ; Silent operation ; Includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Bundled with bodacious bloatware ; Included 1TB drive and 8GB RAM not user-upgradeable ; Inadequate 3D performance for gaming

Overall, we really like the Acer Revo One RL85-UR45 hardware. With its Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM, it performed very well using productivity apps, watching videos via services like Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime Instant Video, and browsing the Web. The...

Acer Revo One RL85 review

 

A desktop PC that pretends it's a TiVo

Great design ; Superb storage capacity ; Tiny footprint

Tight ports and fittings ; Lowered specs on high street model ; Poor remote control

This highly compact mini-PC is really smartly designed, save for a couple of niggles, and is great for home entertainment duties, plus it offers some useful additional features.

Acer Revo One RL85: The mini PC for work and play (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

It's not the first time we've seen a mini PC, but the Acer Revo One RL85's dinky one-litre scale means you can wave goodbye to the bulky tower of old,

Acer Revo One RL85 review

 

Acer's latest gadget for the home is the Revo One which is a micro-PC, media streamer and NAS drive in one. Here's our Acer Revo One RL85 PC review.

The Acer Revo One is one of the most interesting PCs we've seen a while packing a lot of hardware into a tiny space. It's so small you could use it anywhere in the house without a problem. The remote control is a little fiddly and you're going to be...
