Just to reiterate, this is the single core Intel Atom 230 1.6GHz, and not the dual core Atom 330.

Thought id add this for anyone wishing to use 1080p content ( blu ray rips and such )

I just purchased one of these , installed XBMC on the internal drive and ran it into my television by 1080p. First of all it was "laggy", hard to describe but not as smooth and responsive as on the lower resolutions.

Next all my high definition content looked soft in comparison to my popcornhour A110, almost standard definition.

There was consistent lag and hiccups on my 1080p rips delivered from a very expensive high speed NAS capable of delivering very fast speeds ( QNAP TS509 ) which all my other media streamers and PCs can stream perfectly from.

Last of all there was large amounts of video tearing in some of my rips.

Overall i am largely unimpressed, id be weary for anyone planning on using one of these as a dedicated media streamer at resolutions higher than 720p

That's cheap as chips (I think!) - Hot from me!

I don't see it on Amazon at that price.
#6
it was £150 on ebuyer too, but it's been about that price since it launched
#7
The dual core (see other thread) is even better, shame about the lack of BT

£149.99

There's an interesting thread in Misc on this box described as "best media centre ever" (for the price)


Thanks, now you mention it, I remember reading that thread.

I've got the Dual core 330, running Windows 7-64 and Ubuntu and sat on the back of my 37" Sharp 1080P telly, connected by HDMI and optical into my AV receiver.

Cracking machine for the price I paid (£150) and even better when you add an extra 1GB and a wireless mouse/keyboard.

Sold the keyboard and mouse that came with it for £20 on eBay, so even better!

The 'lack of Bluetooth' can be remedied for a mere £2 ish, as it's got more USB sockets than you will need.

What they like for leaving turned on ? our pc never gets turned just wondering if these get hot
#11
it's an acer so build quality will be questionable. however since it'll just sit behind a screen and be mostly left alone - good product. dual core would be nicer / smoother experience.

Yes, they will get warm however both XBMC and Boxee will allow you to suspend the machine and wake up from remote control so this will keep them cool and save power.

I have not had any problems with 3 acer machine owned so far. Plenty of problems with my Samsung NC10 though.

coming from an avid mac user, if anyone wants a media centre in the front room to stream music, avi and photos etc, forget appletv, forget popbox, get this thing, amazing value. it's got tonnes of great connections, and xbmc (xbmc.org) is by far the best media centre software ever created, by a long way. oh and it's free.

i'd recommend anyone thinking of buying this, or a media centre, to read this link

It's possibl§e to run both Boxee and xbmc at the same time
#16
shame they aint doing the 330 at this price

My 5920G laptop is now nearly 3 years old and my son knocked a cup of coffee all over it a few nights ago .. got in the keyboard and totally killed the thing. Plugged it in last night and today everything is working fine.

Wouldn't say that's questionable build quality.
#18
i can't believe this thing can take 2GB of ram, the appletv has 256MB (i've just had to reboot mine AGAIN by unplugging it.....)

I wouldn't way your experience is in any way related to build quality, but there you go.

been looking at one of these as a media centre, but the only doubt i have is how much noise it will make...?

can someone advise how loud this can become when playing 720/1080p stuff??

thanks.
#21
I really hate this website. I'm really this close to buying one for my bedroom and I don’t bloody need one and probably won’t use it. Voted hot and rep, curse you. grrrrrrrrrrr

It is very quiet, certainly quieter than my SKY HD box.

If using XBMC it will play 1080p with very low CPU utilisation.

In Windows this is very easy to do, Linux will take a bit of knowledge but is also doable.
#26
This machine is VERY quiet, i have had it since xmas as it replaced my only full size pc/media centre.

Cant recomend this beauty highly enough!

The only this I had problems with were BBC iPlayer, when i connected remotely, as soo as i switched to full screen and logged off of the remote connection the picture would hang!, This was resolved by right clicking in the video window and UN ticking "Hardware Acceleration"??? seems odd but now all is running smoothly on all streaming sites!!

GO ON................BUY ONE.................YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#27
does xbmc now support ION hardware acceleration and new flash player 10.1 with the hardware acceleration? I have the 330 and would like to use xbmc

I know exactly how you feel, lol. Soooo tempted right now.

I voted cold, and here's why:

1. This is £10 less than Amazon - I can't get worked up about that as a deal on a £100+ product.

2. You can get/recently could get a Dell Mini 10 for £174 on Outlet. That £35 extra buys you a screen, battery, bluetooth, Windows. Same processor, RAM, and HDD. I'm not saying that Windows is a huge advantage over Linux, but it's certainly worth a few bob, so the Acer box seems v expensive by comparison.

Sorry to pour cold water on this deal, and I'm happy to be corrected, especially as I'm not into media centre PCs. Don't think the Mini 10 does HDMI, anyway.

Can't see how you would use a netbook as a media centre next to your TV. This deal is for a Nettop / media centre so you can't compare to a netbook,

voted hot.

But not the same graphics capability... the HDMI port isn't the only thing lacking.

sorry im just gobsmaked with your comment on why you have voted cold.

You voted cold because:

1. Its more expensive at Amazon
2. because you can buy a dell mini ( a totally differrent bit of kit) for more.

No wonder this forum has gone to pot at times.

just bought the dual core version for £199!

where did you get it for £199?

Would prefer the dual core for better handling of HD, but at £200 I think I'll wait for the next time that's on offer...
#38
I really want a HD media streamer for my TV but I'm not going down the Linux route - whatever I choose has to be easy for the whole family to use. For me, I'm waiting for the D-Link Boxee Box as it'll play virtually any format and the remote with QWERTY keyboard will be more acceptable to the Mrs than leaving a PC keyboard on the sofa!
#39
Argh. I just bought this 2 days ago for 149.99 from ebuyer.

To those holding out for the dual-core. Completely uneeded. I've got this single core version and running 1080p video's with around 20% CPU usage. It's all offloaded to the ION GPU. If you're going to run it as a full desktop PC, then it's wise to hold out for the dual core.

I'm running XBMC 9.10 and not had a single issue running ANY of my HD videos, no matter how complicated the scene

If its just running boxee as a front end then does it really matter what OS is underneath?
