Got one of these from Maplin a while ago with Windows 7, great machine, runs near silent. One of the best purchases i've done in the last year or so.

Struggling a bit to get XBMC to work from pen drive but thats more down to my lazyness and lack of time on my behalf more than anything else.

My advice would be to just run Boxee from inside Win 7 as it can handle HD video no problem and has all the catch up on demand services were as XBMC doesn't do BBC because of a recent change the DRM or something like that.

Looks like i've found my project for the evening, cheers......

Can anyone report their experiences with using this a media player for DVD's and maybe blu ray rips.

Hows the 5.1 support on it?

Checked earlier in the week and it was still £190 so price must've just dropped. Still don't really need one. Will I be able to resist this time too?

Comes with an optical out SPDIF so as good as any other digital audio output. I think it's rated for 7.1 but you'll need an external DVD or Blueray drive to handle that kind of media as there's no built-in drive.

I've been watching this from last time.. but was delaying to buy it to get users reviews..
Anyone who bought these.. how do u feel this with Windows OS?
Do u know what HDD is inside this? a normal 2.5'' sata one?
how about RAM?
If these are easily changable, i would say this a great deal

hows the battery life on this?

Definitley recommend I paid over £200 for one at the last price drop and it's fantistic, it replaced my quad core media centre and has done a brilliant job. I regularly stream hd videos mkv's etc from my windows server and it never misses a beat.

very, very short

........... apart from the CMOS battery, which is probably much the same as any other desktop

I put windows 7 on and it's very quick considering it's cpu output th dual core atom really does make a difference, the hdd is a 2.5" seagate sata drive and it has two ram slots laptop sized I have 2 X 2GB DDR2 SDRAM - 667 MHz in mine.

I get about 40 minutes when I plug it into a car battery.
#13
Great little box! I paid this price for the single core atom with only 1gb ram. I'm running XBMC / Linux and plays 1080p with no problems :) Go get one!!

You should get in excess of 500 hours out of one 1.5v AAA (if the actual machine is run off the mains - like it's supposed to be).
#15
Thank god someone found this! It has been a few weeks now without a Revo deal! =P

Good deal though - very tempted.

Just got Boxee up and running and its all good. So far running the mkv files with no lag which is all good.

Many thanks:thumbsup:
#18
Any ideas what Linux release this has installed? I am a bit of a Ubuntu convert and I am wondering how this will do as a Ubuntu driven media centre PC.

Also does that hdmi connection carry much sound? Is it happy with dolby digital and dts passed through from ac3?
#21
Does anyone know how well this will handle a 40gb uncompressed blu-ray rip? my 2009 iMac struggles but plays everything else fine.
#22
when are the ion2's comming out?
#23
Damn you OP!!!! I've been resisting this for weeks and now I'm £179 lighter after just buying it. (Well £189 as they ripp norn irelanders off)

Heat + rep all the same :thumbsup:

It's available now. If your asking when it will be in a revo or any desktop. Well not until Intel stop supplying Atom 230/330's or Apple decide they no longer will be using 9400m gpu's (then Nvidia will stop production). I cant see either of these happening anytime soon.

lol

I got one and its excellent plays everything i've thrown at it.

The easy part is putting XBMC on it, the harder part is config xbmc to your needs (skins etc)

sooo tempted!
#29
Linpus is one whole bag of rubbish but its easy enough to put Ubuntu or Win7 on it if you read the thread about the R3600.

Have been waiting a while for the price to drop and it seems that the R3600 has been discontinued so I have finally cracked :P

Edit: Free next working day delivery as well. Bonus!

Wait, they have just cancelled my order!
#30
tempting, but I don't understand why they give a standard keyboard and optical mouse with it... which will probably end up at the back of the cupboard. Why don't they sell it with something useful, like this keyboard
#31
Has anyone else who has ordered had the status changed to pending to cancel?
#32
Nope, mines got to despatched (ordered 2 hours ago)
#33
I think I tripped their fraud alarm as I registered then ordered something 'costly'. Ordering via a 3rd party now.

£239 ......win 7 + wireless keyboard ? worth £60
not sure postage
#35
I have the Win7 version of this (which comes with wireless KB + mouse), and I love it!
I use Windows media player classic (included with k-lite codec pack), and have no problems at all playing 1080p MKV's (installed the latest ION drivers and enabled DXVA at the end of the K-lite installation) .
Some people complain about the 'cheap feel' of the keyboard, but I actually like it.

Surfing the web feels a little sluggish sometimes, but it's nothing too serious.

Massive bonus is the low power usage, leaving overnight to download lots of goodies to watch hardly drains any juice.

Maybe they don't include a keyboard like that because it would add another £30 to the price of the system, and maybe not everyone who buys the system as it is will be too bothered about the bundled KB + mouse?
Pretty sure everyone is capable for buying a better set themselves if they want to (I certainly wouldn't want the example you posted...).
#36
damn the r3610 has optical out? i assumed the 7.1 audio came out of the hedphone jack when i bought my 3600, got one of those adapters for an optical cable but it's just a standard headphone jack, didn't realise the one up has a proper s/pdif port. oh well, still well chuffed with my 3600 running xbmc
#37
I just used this for reference, assuming it's accurate for this model.
http://www.mediasmarthome.com/blog/entry/14309/Acer-Aspire-Revo-R3610-review/

No coaxial output :( I don't have an optical slot left on my amp, oh wells sticking to my normal pc for now.
#38
I bought one of these from Ebuyer. When they're running properly, they're awesome. I was running Win7 Pro 32bit which's really good, powerful and more capable of handling resources wisely.

Now the problem is...I've had a problem with the hard-drive that was grinding...I know...I know..it's ok...it happens..

It's ACER customer support that is the problem. They first promise you of 4-7 "business" days until your unit is returned.

it's been 15 business days and their call centre in India is just useless...they are just useless...

The pc itself is great unless you're unlucky like myself and get stuck with the useless call centre

I'm voting HOT though :)

cheers

Because you will never find a Linux PC with a hardware spec close enough to a Windows PC to enable you to work out how much the Windows Tax is on that device.

Also have a look at Mythbuntu. Mythbuntu 10.04 is out now >
