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

A super-slim entertainer that costs the earth

Quiet and slim ; Cutting-edge Blu-ray capabilities

Out-priced by almost everything ; Weak 3D and CPU

Acer Revo RL100


Acer's original Revo was an attractively styled home-theatre PC that delivered media-centre facilities through nVidia's Ion technology. It combined Intel's low-power and speed-starved Atom processor with a graphics-friendly nVidia GeForce 9400M. Now we...

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

If you're looking for the perfect home theatre PC, this is it. But anyone looking for a number cruncher or a gaming station should probably look elsewhere.
