Less than usual? These have been £202 for a long while, the price has just gone up to this price past week or so, this is a price INCREASE, not decrease.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/acer-revo-r3700-199-ebuyer/830657 - £199 before VAT increase then went to £202 with increase.

I got mine a couple of weeks ago for £200. They've just increased the price. Great PC but this is not a deal.

Exactly, I was waiting till after Xmas to get one as a media player for the front room. Then it shot up £25. I know VAT went up but only 2.5% Debating on an Apple TV2 now jailbroken to run XBMC. £90 and does the same function that I want,

I was doing the exact same thing. Figured it had been £200 for weeks it must be going to stay there. Then Bam right when I am ready to buy it goes up. Sods law.. Guess back to waiting again.

And then you have to deal direct with the manufacture. Without a proper proof of purchase, which some manufacturers require. and trust me most manufacturers do not see Ebay as proof of purchase, they want a 'proper' reciept.

Much better to be able to just send it back to Ebuyer and geta new one next day.

Honestly good luck getting anything replaced in say 10 months time that you bought on Ebay, highley unlikley to happen.

depends. if you use the buy it now option and are buying from a seller who is acting as a trader (ie has 10 to sell) then you are covered by the distance selling regulations and sale of goods act which is worth alot more than a manufacturers warranty (although somewhat harder to impress upon a stubborn trader.) if you win an auction as opposed to using buy it now, you lose the distance selling regulations but may still have comeback under the sale of goods. if you buy second hand from a private seller, then you're scuppered.

Its slow, it crashes a lot right now when dealing with almost everything, its just not stable for it. In time, perhaps. But for now, my Revo is my best choice. Bought an aTV2 just to try for a different room, but no. I could take the 720p only, that wasn't a problem. But its just not stable enough right now.

I have a R3700 and the fan comes on whenever I plug it into may Panasonic TV via HDMI. This happens when there is no power connected to the Revo, so the power must be coming through the HDMI cable. If I power the revo and turn it on, the fan stops, but as soon as I turn it off, it starts again.
Anyone have any ideas, only if this cannot be turned off then it makes it useless as a media centre

I bought the Zotac ION N330 for £130 and the Akasa Crypto for £40 as I already had the RAM, HDD & optical. I'm absolutely delighted with my build :) for anyone looking for a bit more than a revo I highly recommend it!

No i don,t see the point, just returned a faulty camera to Amazon. No problems will give me a refund. You try that with an Ebay seller, assuming he is still a registered user. I know what the outcome would be. Add to that Amazon etc will send a courier out to pick up at no charge to the customer. Its each to their own though, iIoften see stuff sell on Ebay for more than you can get it for from a reputable company. Whats that all about.
