"The Acer Revo One also features a 60GB solid state drive that's perfect for storing multimedia content."
Yes, once it's loaded up with Windows and all the apps previously mentioned, you too will be able to store all 3 of your favourite CDs

Perfect HTPC just load openelec

If it's just for openelec the raspberry pi 2 is hard to beat imo.

This is a great deal can even use your Club card vouchers to make it even cheaper.
I've had the 3610 revo and the RL80 revo. Great machines. Been looking out for a deal for this one. Thanks

Not bad if you just stick Kodi on it then again android boxes are half the price realistically

What the gog said!

While the 60GB SSD included is a little small, you can install standard 2.5" SATA disks (I think it'll take 3). The Celeron CPU is a 2957U which is fine for running as an HTPC (up to 1080p blu-ray type content - it won't handle 4K).

actually in kodi this CPU can handle 4k I believe.

this is OK but I would recommend the HP 260 g1 at ebuyer with beat my price

Yes. Was £199, now £149. Minus £20 = £129.

No longer available I'm afraid, and this has the advantage of WiFi and is more easily expandable.

If you actually looked at the specs instead of whining, you'd realise that it has it has room for 3 HDDs/SSDs and two of the drive bays are also hot swappable, so it's hardly a big deal to plug in a 1TB HDD for storage. In fact, this is also configurable to run a RAID 5 setup.

"The design of the two quick-release caddies is extremely well done. The SSDs sit in them squarely and they're removed simply by being pulled upwards. To replace them, you simply angle the caddy so its nubs line up with the Revo and slide it in, so the connector clicks together. The third disk is buried away between them, and requires a screwdriver to get at – which also gives you access to the RAM slot and the 802.11n wireless card."

More like you were trying to be clever but realised all too late that you had made a clueless comment.

I've got the celeron model... just be aware there is no hardware raid on it, you'll need the i3/i5 versions for that.

​Wow you've got me worked out haven't you.
Get a life mate

Just ordered one. Any on line guides on how to turn this into a 3TB power house?

Think these are pretty good in comparison to the HP 260 G1 - you get a remote control, hdmi port, Wi-Fi and no messing about with custom cables to add a 2.5" hard drive + a bigger base hard drive (ssd). I prefer the form factor of the 260 though and it has more USB ports & and (almost laughably) an internal speaker. Tempted even though just bought 2 260 G1's!!

what's better between this one and the minix z64W?
The price is pretty much the same and I'm gonna use the mini pc for media center, sky go and torrent.
What's better for the price?

The 7.1 sound coming from the HDMI port is OK if you have a separate receiver but if not then it will be a wasted feature.

A dedicated optical out port would have been useful.

But for what it is and with the option to install additional drives, it's not bad for a dual use machine.

Don't have limit to 3TB - can use 3x 2TB or even larger 2.5" HDDs these days...

If you care to read the post rather than getting on some high horse (did someone upset you today?) you'll see that I refererred to :-
"60GB solid state drive that's perfect for storing multimedia content"
Regardless of the fact that the overall device is capable of having more hard drives attached, 60Gb is good for nought. The statement in the OP is nonsense.
Now It's you who has made some over the top comment about "whining" and isn't backing down.
Whatever, have yourself a splendid bank holiday weekend mate.

LOL. You just quoted the sales blurb, then you'd thought you'd try and be clever by making a quip about 60gb would allow you to "store all 3 of your favourite CDs."

Do you not even read your posts or are you just in denial? You make yourself look even sillier by trying to explain it away.

This has THREE drive bays including TWO hot swappable ones. Have you not heard of one of these? X)

Best to avoid 3TB HDDs (particularly any Seagate ones). For some reason they seem to be less reliable:

FFS even I know its a joke... though a bit of a crap one 32Gb is fine for a box that is being used to stream media or as a low grade office terminal (19GB free after a virgin Windows 10 install.)

Ah yes, same here but I only bought the 1.
Does anyone know how to get the best settings or what's best for using video?
I am using vlc but keep getting stuttering on video's ie 10gig plus files. Shall I install the extra 2gb ram, do you think that will help?

I've just done a quick test of a 10GB file 1080p streaming from a microserver using MPC x64. Worked fine - no stuttering. I have added an extra 2Gb to both my 260's. Free memory according to resource monitor was 2684 MB without MPC playing the file and approx 2050-2150 MB free when playing. This figure did not include approx. 850MB of standby memory that would be freed up on deman. I'm not convinced the extra memory will help. What Ethernet throughput are you getting?

How do I check the ethernet throughput?
It's working fine on my asus ul30a which is a very old
laptop. It could be the nas which is a Seagate 2gb nas which is playing up?

Ps is there an easy guide to install the ram? I tried ir th other day but didn't have relevant screw driver to open up.

Is there any bloatware also that I can get rid off?

Does anyone know if this will qualify for the free win 10 upgrade?

I’ve got about 9 1TB 2.5” drives if I dismantle the USB 2 ones is there a fair chance I’ll end up with drives I can install?

GOM player beats VLC in my opinion...

I'm going to go into Picard123 nerd-mode now and say the 16TB PM1633a is not SATA

If I want to use this soley as a HTPC with Sky Go, Plex and Kodi, will this do it (potentially up to 4k), or do I have to go for the i3? (and also be running a VPN)
