Great For In Home Wireless Use As A Primary PC
 
Time marches on, and it was time for me to ditch my old boat anchor PC and find a new all-purpose PC for the home that also could handle work-related tasks.My PC needs:* Basic web-surfing.* Basic home finance and planning abilities (think spreadsheet and programs that help organize the household).* Work. I work from home, and I need a PC that has enough horsepower to telecommute.* Wireless capabilities.* A model with a small footprint.What I didn't need:* Video streaming (which is a prima...

Worthy basic-use PC
 
I was in the market for a cheap, small desktop. After eying the Revo 3600 for a few weeks, I jumped on this model as soon as it became available. So far I'm not disappointed. The computer is tiny, attractive, and very quiet. I couldn't manage to get it to stay mounted firmly on my monitor, so I opted for the normal stand instead. Setup was simple, and the pre-installed bloatware was fairly minimal compared to some computers I've owned.Performance seems solid. I had no real experience with Window...

What a bargain!
 
This is just a quick note to fill in a couple of details not in the listed specs, now that I've actually received and set up 2 of these.The version of ION graphics is listed on the box as "GT218-ION" They work perfectly, so far as I can tell for You Tube HD (and Hulu) videos. (I did first upgrade Flash to version 10.1.)The "wireless" mouse and keyboard work via a nano-size dongle installed in a USB port, and are fine up to a distance of about 5 feet. They are seen by Windows as 2.4GHz, but are n...

What you get for the extra $150.
 
The Acer AspireRevo AR1600 cost $199.99 at Amazon.com.The Acer AspireRevo AR3700 costs $349.99 at Amazon.com.I purchased both for home use. I am not a "Power User."What did I get for the extra $150? Was it worth spending more for a dual core microprocessor and newer operating system? Does it have enough power to justify the higher price?Here is why I believe the answer is yes.There is no built-in wifi with the AR1600 unlike the AR3700.The AR1600 is sold with Windows XP and the AR3700 with Window...

Purchased with Intent to Stream both Live and Recorded TV
 
After using the Windows Device Manager (not the included NVIDIA software cause it didn't work) to update the Video Driver, this little bad boy performs as advertised. Setting up the Wireless connection was simple. The wireless keyboard and mouse have a comfortably tactical feel and are both very responsive. Incredibly, I'm able to control the mouse on the side of my leg while sitting comfortably on the couch. The HDMI and power cables are the only wires extending from the sleek, router sized com...

Flash performance == good : Silverlight performance == not good
 
The unit is very small and generates little noise and heat. Just be sure to not block the exhaust vent like I initially did (otherwise the fan will run harder and louder). This has several USB 2.0 ports but no ESATA port (unlike previous models). Connected to my Samsung 40 inch LCD TV via HDMI and runs well. The power button on the front is a bit mushy / unresponsive so you must press it firmly and in the dead center.Acer claims the wireless card is a LITE-ON WN6602R with an RaLink RT3390 ch...

Doesn't stream video from Hulu and many other websites
 
I read a lot of reviews about how great the Revo is. But after getting one, I found that it didn't do what I mainly bought it for... as an HTPC to stream internet TV. I finally contacted Nvidia and here's what they had to say:"When running a full screen video stream from YouTube, Hulu or NetFlix, the video may become choppy or the audio and video lose sync, even though the GPU may be at low utilization.This is caused by a bandwidth limitation in the PCI-E 1X channel. While most desktop systems u...

AR3700-U3002 is a mixed bag
 
Pros:Compact, nearly silent, utilizes little power. Wireless keyboard and mouse work well from several feet away. Lots of USB ports and an SPDIF output, as well. Plays locally stored and wireless HD content smoothly. Handles HD content from Youtube and CBS.com well.Cons:Ultimately, this falls short as a full-fledged HTPC, at least for now. The AR3700 chokes on fullscreen content from Hulu and Netflix, and in general has issues playing content rendered with Flash and Silverlight. (This is a...

Bargain Deal but Flawed
 
I recently put together a home theater and wanted a nice, quiet, nettop for playing videos. I had read a lot about the acer revo's and was happy to find one for such a reasonable price. So far though I have been very disappointed with this pc.As other people have mentioned this computer does a terrible job with streaming video. If you are looking to watch the instant streams on netflix be prepared for jerky, laggy, video- it's unwatchable in full screen mode.Many people though, myself included, ...

Day 2 - Won't Power-Up
 
After reading many glowing reviews on what a good buy this is for HTPC Home Theater PC applications bought this to connect to my new 46" Samsung LED TV. Day 1 it started and worked. Day 2 it would not power-up. The Acer website said to hold down the power button for 10 seconds to discharge the capacitors (I think) and it did not work. Acer customer service told me to ship it from my California home to Texas for Service. It took 2 weeks. When it was returned, a form inside said they could n...
