Acer Revo One RL85 review

 

A desktop PC that pretends it's a TiVo

Great design ; Superb storage capacity ; Tiny footprint

Tight ports and fittings ; Lowered specs on high street model ; Poor remote control

This highly compact mini-PC is really smartly designed, save for a couple of niggles, and is great for home entertainment duties, plus it offers some useful additional features.

Acer Revo One RL85: The mini PC for work and play (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

It's not the first time we've seen a mini PC, but the Acer Revo One RL85's dinky one-litre scale means you can wave goodbye to the bulky tower of old,

Acer Revo One RL85

 

The Acer Revo One RL85 is a small, stylish PC intended to be your go-to home entertainment hub.

Small form factor ; Stylish design ; Impressive storage

UK specs lower ; Remote control badly designed ; Unnecessary bloatware

Acer Revo One review

 

Small desktop PCs are enjoying something of a renaissance, thanks to systems such as HP's Pavilion Mini and Intel's Compute Stick . Along with the standard bearer of the category, Apple's Mac Mini , these computers appeal to both aesthetic minimalists...

The Acer Revo is an attractive mini desktop with plenty of storage for media files, which can easily play 4K video.

Basic streaming boxes or even other media-friendly PCs cost less. The included keyboard and mouse feel cheap, and most gaming is out of the question.

The Acer Revo is a do-it-all media-friendly PC that can fit anywhere.

Acer Revo One RL85 review

 

A clever design means Acer's brilliant Revo One mini PC can double-up as a 3-drive server

Intel's processors are more than capable of transcoding Full HD video, but unsurprisingly the Revo One isn't cut out for serious gaming. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 could only achieve a jerky 17.8fps in Dirt Showdown at 1,920x720 resolution,...

  (Rating Hidden)

The Acer Revo One RL85 is a miniature desktop PC but it doesn't come with a monitor. It does, however, come with a quirky remote instead of a mouse and keyboard and a very attractive price tag. Can it compete with conventional all-in-ones, or higher...

Acer Revo One RL85 Mini-PC Review

 

KitGuru says: The Revo One is a well-built mini-PC, and packs in a fair amount of grunt into its small chassis. The only downside is the price, which seems rather steep for a mobile-powered system.

Rather expensive for what you get

The Revo One is a well-built mini-PC, and packs in a fair amount of grunt into its small chassis. The only downside is the price, which seems rather steep for a mobile-powered system.

Acer Revo One RL85 review - a desktop PC that fits in the palm of your hand

 

Acer's attempt to redefine the desktop PC is an attractive, surprisingly flexible box of tricks

The version we’ve tested here won’t be available to buy in the shops. In fact, the closest configuration has an older, slightly slower Haswell-based Core i3-400 chip running at a clock frequency of 1.7GHz, has only one 2TB hard disk, has half the RAM...
