ASRock CoreHT 252B Review

 

The small form factor (SFF) HTPC market has been steadily growing over the last few years. As mobile processors become more and more powerful, it is becoming easier for users to be satisfied with their performance even in desktop configurations. The...

Asrock CoreHT 252B HTPC Review

 

Despite dominating the CPU-oriented charts, the CoreHT 252B wasn't exactly unstoppable. If you intend to use this HTPC for a casual solution to PC gaming, you'll probably want to look elsewhere as the Intel HD Graphics 3000 engine just doesn't cut it....

ASRock CoreHT-252B HTPC

 

Very compact, Excellent included hardware and features, Top-notch performance, Very upgradable

OS not included, Excessive heat, Possibly rather pricey

Should you buy it? The answer depends on what your needs are. If you need something to act simply as a playback station, I might suggest looking elsewhere. An Atom or even a lower-end Intel Core series HTPC, of which ASRock offers several, would suit...

ASRock CoreHT-252B HTPC Review

 

Petite and stylish are two things that pre-built system manufacturers are attempting to capture with system builds today. Not only are more people interested in computers every day, but many of the people interested in computers don't need them for...

ASRock CoreHT 252B review

 

A compact HTPC with built-in Blu-ray, but does it justify the price?

Small ; Silent ; Blu-ray player built-in ; Good expandability options ; Intel Core i5 processor

Pricey ; Heats up easily ; Missing Blu-ray playback software ; No IR receiver ; Windows not included in price

Is ASRock's all-in-one Home Theatre PC (HTPC), the CoreHT 252B-4G50/B, the perfect living room companion to sit by your TV?

Slick HTPC/Server

 

My main concern is long-term reliability. I'm using this PC as an occasional HTPC and primarily as a server, meaning it stays on 24/7. Laptops generally aren't designed for that, so I'm hoping the hardware will hold up. My 252B idles a little higher...

I have only owned this PC for about a week, but it has met all of my expectations so far. I upgraded the RAM to 8GB and installed Windows 7 Pro 64-bit without any issues. It boots fast and runs great. It's fairly quiet too -- almost inaudible when...

I can't think of any real cons, but here are some things that would have been nice ; I ordered mine with an 8GB RAM kit; it would've been nice if there was a model that shipped without RAM and perhaps a hard drive so users could choose their own ;...
