I bought one of these as a HTPC for my TV, it does that job really well but as a pc running programs as simple as the internet it is really bad, so slow and hangs most of the time before it decides to do what I want it to. As an example if I click on internet explorer (even tried firefox) it will load and just sit on the home page while it decides wether or not to load the full page, ebay is worse.

I have the R3600 which is also does very well as a HTPC (even 1080p) but it also functions just fine with Windows tasks as well. Ebay browsing with it is just the same as with any other PC. I am using wired ethernet and Windows 7 32bit Ultimate. The 3700 should be quicker.

I am using win 7 64 bit over ethernet and yes it should be better but sounds like it isnt.
My ram is 2GB not sure what yours is so that may be a reason. I did think it may have been flash programs that where slowing it down but I have even tried with and without. Say I click on a ebay page and you get the ads on the right, thats where it seems to slow down a lot. It will sit there until the ads appear then run ok for a bit and then hang, seconds but seems like a life time when you are used to using other pc's.
Playing 1080p is great though.

Install AdBlockPlus and FlashBlock in a browser like Firefox and get rid of the ads, that should improve things.

Do any of you guys know what sort of spec I need to use as a media centre outputing Mkvs at 1080p (Without having to install linux)?

I've got one of these, with Win7 64-bit, and it's playing 1080p mkv's straight to my 1080p hdtv just lovely.

It's been this price over a week now, if not longer as I have been looking at it. The R3610 was a better machine, though: eSATA and no crippled ION.

Part of the slowness with Flash is down to Intel's greed in the D510 & D525 revisions of Atom/ION boards in crowding out nVidia by forcing all of the graphics through the NM10 controller chip - basically it runs at x1 PCIe, whereas the R36xx series addressed the ION chip directly from the cpu. Most Flash decoding relies on the cpu and on these ION2 boards they have an extra bottleneck to negotiate.

It put me off this and other ION2 boards, even though both the cpu and gpu are a little beefier.

Simple add blocker for ie works. Has speeded it up, much better than before thanks.

I got one of these a few weeks ago & upgraded the memory to 4GB & am running Win7Pro64bit with a 4GB SD card for readyboost. It runs fairly smoothly, the Media Center program can be a wee bit slow to respond but it plays, streams & records just fine. It's currently hiding behind a 19" TFT monitor attached to the VESA mount but the top sticks out a bit. I found Firefox runs painfully slowly but Chrome/Chromium runs a whole lot better. Also try downgrading the graphics performance in Windows - turning off Aero made a big difference.

If I were you I'd take it one step further:

Chrome (generally less resource intensive, faster browser on slower PCs)
AdBlock Plus - the definitive ad-blocking extension
ClickToFlash - Stops ALL flash loading, allowing you to choose which to enable by manually clicking them. Does wonders for stopping most flash on websites about 90% of which is usually ads or something useless. You can get it to ignore certain websites (e.g. YouTube, which uses Flash for videos) so it doesnt affect your overall browsing experience.

Hi Guys,

I was all set to buy one of these for streaming instead of my PS3, but was also going to be using it to run my Slingbox through, and I am slightly worried now as I think Slingbox is Flash based!

Anyone have experience with the 3700 and Slingbox? I have seen the 3610 running it fine, but would prefer to get the 3700.
#19
just if anyone is interested all the problems I was having have been sorted by adding another 2GB of ram. 4GB is what this needs if running Win 7.
