AsRock Vision 3D HTPC Review


We find it a bit mind-boggling that home-theater PCs don't generate much interest among mainstream consumers. These machines offer so many features, and most people are already familiar with the Windows interface. Luckily for we enthusiasts,...

Expensive. No TV tuner. Exposed ports on front panel

ASRock is one of the companies held in high esteem by everyone here at AnandTech. We have been reviewing their HTPC offerings since they first came out their Ion based HTPC last year. After starting out at the low end, they soon moved up to place...

ASRock Vision 3D 252B HTPC Review


When we first took a look at the ASRock Vision 3D 137B with NVIDIA 3DTV Play last year, we were quite impressed with the machine. It offered excellent all-around performance for a system in its class and had an extensive feature set that included...

Great Performance ; Small Form Factor ; Quiet Operation ; Flexible Connectivity Option ; Good Looking

Pricey ; Higher Power Consumption Than Fusion or Atom based HTPCs

The ASRock Vision 3D 252B performed very well throughout our entire battery of tests. Its performance in comparison to the other HTPC and low-power systems we tested was excellent and power consumption was somewhat lower than the previous-gen Vision 3D...

Best home theater PC for 3D TV owners


If you own a large collection of 3D-enabled Blu-ray Discs or computer applications -- and a 3D HDTV capable of playing them -- reviewers say the ASRock Vision 3D-137B (*Est. $750) is your best option for a home theater PC. The computer's Intel...

Extensive connectivity options, capable of playing 3D content, blu-ray drive, good performance for a nettop, strong audio capabilities, moderate gaming use

Very expensive for a nettop, no installed operating system

Asrock Vision 3D HTPC


If a study was conducted about the frequency of utterance of the word “boredom” over the years, I am quite sure that it has been mentioned less in 2011 compared to any year since recorded history. New “Super Phones” are replacing the Smart Phone of...

Sleek and attractive design ; GT425M GPU with 7.1 HD audio bitstreaming ; Stereo 3D Media Playback and 3D Vision gaming capable ; IR based MCE remote control (with dual CR232 battery included) ; Plenty of USB ports (3 x USB 3.0 and 5 x USB 2.0 ports) ;...

Fan gets very loud at CPU intensive tasks, like encoding or heavily CPU dependent games ; Clearance for extra 2.5" drive is very small ; Price

Although there is space to attach an additional drive on the motherboard, looking at the drive mounting plate begs the question, how and where can you exactly add this drive? The clearance is very narrow and the bottom drive has to be screwed in place...

Quick Review: ASRock ION 3D 152B Intel Atom D525 HTPC with NVIDIA 3DTV Play


ASRock now has a decent history of producing a range of HTPC nettops. Today they up the ante with the ION 3D 152B that comes with 3D support via NVIDIA 3DTV Play and the Next-Gen ION GPU.

If you already own a previous generation ASRock HTPC and don't fancy 3D, you'd be wasting your time here. However, if you do want 3D or are on the market for a affordable HTPC with 3D that may not crush its competitors, but offer an all-round pretty...

ASRock Vision 3D HTPC Review


Today ASRock are back with their latest mini-PC, the Vision 3D. Based on Intel's H55 chipset and NVIDIA's Fermi based GT425M graphics this model gives consumers a simple way to add a Blu-Ray 3D based HTPC to their home cinema. Today we put that system...

As with any hardware which is cutting edge the Vision 3D isn't cheap but ASRock provide some exceptional performance and features for this price. They haven't skimped on components used and all are quality branded parts. All of this combines to create...
