Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002 review: Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002

 

Acer Revo 100 RL100-U1002

The ; 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 Revo 100 RL100-U1002 review

 

There's a lot to like about Acer's updated home theater Nettop, the Revo 100. At $499, this system has an ultraslim design and a unique touch-pad device, all wrapped around a low-power dual-core AMD chip, a Blu-ray player, and a large 750GB hard drive....

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. Clear.fi 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.

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...

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

With 3D Blu-ray playback and an awesome touch remote, is this sleek, quiet machine truly the ultimate HTPC?

Acer Revo 100 review

 

Despite its seemingly impressive spec, the Revo 100 doesn't do HD audio and 3D is incompatible with current TVs

Compact ; ingenious touchpad controller ; intuitive software ; good pictures and sound

Doesn’t do HD audio as standard ; 3D seemingly incompatible with current TVs

With HD audio and 3D that worked properly, this clever PC could be a real winner

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 Aspire Revo RL100 review

 

Smart TVs are everywhere, but none is smarter than a PC. Hooking up a media-friendly computer such as the Revo RL100 to your big screen opens up loads of new entertainment possibilities.
