ASRock ION 330HT-BD 1080P Blu-Ray HTPC System Review


Anyone who has put together a HTPC knows that finding the right balance of performance, power, and noise can be a difficult task. Today we look at a system that finds a balance between the three. Looking for the perfect platform for your HTPC? This...

The ASRock ION 330HT-BD is worth a long hard look for anyone searching for a new HTPC. With two very complete models to choose from, one of which at a great price, it's hard to go wrong. Nearly silent in operation, this is a nearly perfect HTPC with...

ASRock ION 330HT NetTop HTPC


For the longest time, Asus was the kind of company that was only known by techies and enthusiasts. Asus had very popular motherboards and other internal components, but it had ...

Small and classy form factor ; No shortage of USB 2.0 ports ; Full support of 7.1 surround sound ; Good video performance for the price

No front-mounted USB ports

There are many other companies that produce small form factor PCs and home theater PC cases, but the ASRock Ion 330HT sounds like it’s supposed to work right out of the box. This should lower the barrier of entry for many people who aren't as keen to...

ASRock ION 330HT with Blu-Ray


With so many systems to choose from it is hard to believe that the first time we saw an ION based system was just over 12months ago. To say it has become a hit is a real understatement but this shouldn't be a surprise given the potential NVIDIA's...

Asrock ION 330HT-BD Nettop


ON 330HT Specifications & Features Today we are taking a look at a very SMALL HTPC from Asrock, they sent us a sample of their ION 300HT-BD where the BD stands for a Bluray Drive so we can use Bluray on this small HTPC. It seems quite competetive...

Small ; Upgradable ; Bluray drive ; Everything is internal ; HDMI

No front panel USB ; Minor heat issues

First off, this is a pretty silent unit, the only thing that actually makes a bit of noise is the Bluray player if you decide to use a disc. I was able to run 720p without issues from a .iso file but the unit is not able to play a 1080p although the...

ASRock ION 330HT-BD Home Theater PC


The HTPC (Home Theater PC) market is a huge and highly competitive industry. New products are constantly coming out that offer more features and better performance. ASRock's ION 330 series of NetTop / Home Theater PCs are an excellent design that packs...

Quiet & Compact ; Capable of 1080p playback ; Lots of connectivity options ; Pre-installed HD & RAM, so it's ready to go ; Capable of supporting second internal HD (and even RAID) ; Full featured BIOS with easy overclocking options ; Upgraded models...

Pre-installed HD & RAM, all models have same specs ; No front USB ports ; Real life expectancy of CPU fan is unknown

I'll admit it, I am thoroughly impressed with ASRock's ION 330HT-BD. From a HTPC or NetTop standpoint, the system is simply superb. Blu-ray & DVD playback was perfectly smooth, even watching online HD videos was an enjoyable experience with minimal...

Expert review by: techPowerUp! (



There are plenty of companies offering ION based netbooks and nettops these days. Most of them have very similar spec sheets and thus the price becomes the only deciding factor. ASRock has taken a different approach with the ION 330HT-BD. This high-end...

Excellent set of features, Can easily be overclocked a whooping 500 MHz, Allows for second HDD to be installed for RAID configuration, Easily upgradable due to standard components used, BD-ROM with DVD-RW functionality included, Very compact, MCE...

No front USB connectivity, Low noise, but high pitched, No wireless Keyboard/mouse included, Piano finish paint job may not fit well into your home theater setup, 5400 RPM Drive may be too slow for some scenarios

ASRock Ion 330HT-BD media centre PC


We hope this tiny, powerful HTPC is sign of things to come

Tiny, low power consumption, 1080p support, limited gaming abilities

No bundled operating system or Blu-ray playback software, no front USB ports

ASRock Ion 330HT-BD media centre PC


The ASRock Ion 330HT-BD is a 'nettop' desktop PC with Intel's Atom 330 1.6GHz dual-core processor and NVIDIA ION integrated graphics. It has hardware ...

Tiny, low power consumption, 1080p support, limited gaming abilities

No bundled operating system or Blu-ray playback software, no front USB ports

ASRock's diminutive Ion 330HT-BD 'nettop' media centre is brilliant if you're an avid movie watcher with a large collection of digital media or Blu-ray discs. It's head and shoulders above any Blu-ray player or media streamer in terms of functionality,...

Asrock ION 330HT-BD review


Nvidia's Ion chipset and a dual core Intel Atom 330 processor has proved a winning combination in recent months, a good example being Asus's Eee Box EB1012. Asrock's new nettop has the same core hardware, but it's the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive that...

This compact nettop looks smart, but you'll need to supply your own operating system and Blu-ray playback software.

ASRock ION 330HT-BD Net-top Review


Having played with quite a few Intel Atom based net-tops and netbooks over the last year, we think it's fair to say that performance has on the whole been lacking. Throw anything more than word processing at one of these single core Atom (or VIA) CPUs...

In this industry it's important to keep an open mind. It's rare that hardware that has traditionally been, to put it bluntly, crap, can suddenly turn around and take a big bite out of the WIN cake. It can happen though, and the combination of Ion,...
