ASRock Core 100HT Home Theater PC Review

 

Desktop PCs of 3 or more years ago were power hungry enough that most users shut them down while they were not in use. Today's low-power nettop platform has stunned the world with how small PCs can be if you can afford to sacrifice a little of today's...

The ASRock Core 100HT has a sleek footprint that allows you to put it anywhere in your home theater and will deliver the performance you need without the power demand of a traditional desktop PC.

ASRock Core 100HT-BD Home Theater PC

 

ASRock delivers a Wii-sized home theater PC (HTPC) with a powerful Core i3 CPU, Intel HD Graphics, and a Blu-ray drive. We put the Core 100HT-BD ...

But as personal video recorders (PVRs) become more prolific, as the line between a PC monitor and a living room-based TV blurs, and as Mom begins to rely on email and the Internet as much as I do, the HTPC becomes increasingly viable as an appliance....

ASRock Core 100HT-BD (Mini Core i3 HTPC) Review

 

Today ASRock are back with an updated model from their 330HT, based on Intel's Core i3/HM55 platform, which aims to take performance into the arena of a full desktop PC whilst maintaining the same footprint as their last generation ION system. Can it...

A great balance of performance and features in a high quality chassis. The best compact system we have tested.

ASRock Core 100HT-BD HTPC (Intel Core i3)

 

ASRock now has a long standing history of producing solid nettop systems. But what about the new Core 100HT-BD HTPC? We investigate!

When we heard of ASRock launching a new nettop system, or actually, a home theater PC as ASRock would like it to be called, we were pretty excited to get our hands on the unit. Knowing what they had done in the past with the successful ION 330 and ION...

ASRock Core 100HT Nettop Review

 

At the end of last year week took a look at one of ASRock's first nettop the ION 330HT, which was built around Intel's Atom processor. With the release of Intel's Core processors ASRock rebuilt their nettop series around this new architecture. These...

Small form factor ; Capable of HD video playback ; HDMI out ; Built-in wireless networking ; USB 3.0 ; Included remote

Would have rather the USB 3.0 ports be on the back

It is great to see ASRock update their Nettop line of products with these new models that feature Intel’s new Core Series processors. While the ION 300HT still performs great and would work for anyone looking for a home theater PC, these new processors...

Nice unit; poor assembly

 

Great for trade show travel, since it's small and quiet.

Very good performance for a nettop. FAR better than any Atom box I've used (and I've used a couple, including dual core 525 ion2 systems)

I had to disassemble it and fix it to get any of the ports in the back to align with the case. The alignment was so bad that all of the USB, network, and hdmi ports were unusable. Only the vga port worked prior to fixing it. (Minus 1 star) ; Does not...

Consumer review by:

Nice box, poor graphics drivers support

 

Small, quiet

Linux does not support the built in video controller, limiting video output to 640x480. This is quiet disappointing since I purchased it as a Mythbuntu frontend. Windows drivers are somewhat better, but overscan isn't adjustable which leaves the...

Great little PC

 

This unit isn't for 3D games as you might expect, but for an HTPC or normal for watching HD movies, surfing the web, it's fantastic. It's probably the smallest of its kind for the speed. I would recommend this over any current Atom system for normal...

Tiny, shiny, fast, plays 1080p just fine, doesn't get too hot under load, and is stable... PC is quiet, can install two 2.5" drives, drive doesn't get over 110F degrees, has USB 3.0, has 4GB RAM installed (instead of 2GB, can go up to 8GB total),...

Mostly nitpicking, but ; Two USB 3.0 ports are on the front, but none on the back. There are six USB 2.0 ports on the back. It would be nice to have two rear USB 3.0 ports ; No DVI port (but there is an included HDMI to DVI converter that works fine) ;...

Really Nice HTPC

 

Initially loaded Linux Mint. I am not a linux guru so I could not get full functionality. Such as audio over hdmi, remote control and wireless N encrypted networking. I loaded windows 7 and the system really took off. After drivers and apps were...

Small Form Factor, great performance, usb 3.0, really as complete a unit as you will find short of sourcing and building a machine yourself ; HD playback up to 1080i was flawless both from the machine and over the network. I don't have any 1080p media...

No OS included, for the price it would be nice to see Windows 7 loaded as this machine really seems to be built for that OS ; Only reason for 4 star rating was Price/No OS

Love this little thing!

 

Well integrated system with rock-solid performance. Works well with Win7, both 32 and 64 bit. Packaging is superb and well built. Even with an i3-330 I was able to stream video off the network and rip audio CDs

There are only two minor little things I didn't care for about this product. First, I hate the appliques on the front - who cares if it is a Dvd or BD! The ASrock logo on the front is a bit big for my taste ; Second, the instant ON is really not well...
