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 Revo RL100

Acer Revo 100

 

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
