Posting this deal as not sure if it's a good deal or not and need advice from people here
I picked up one from John Lewis in their clearance sale for £160; definitely a great computer for the price (will probably upgrade with an SSD at some point). It is worth noting it is a lot more compact and attractive than most comparable Windows computers.
Shame it's gone. This 2TB version (not new, 3 month warranty) is an alternative. Sell the Hd for a SSD?
2TB version

I may not have a time machine but this thing was being cleared at £60 a year or so ago for good reason.To be honest I'm surprised it's still being sold. I'm sure there's better offers out there for around the same price, back then there were a few from China that were better specced but not established enough. I'm curious to know what there is now, especially for £100. Quick search and found this Beelink device for a bit more but has an atom rather than a celeron. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Plater-Beelink-x5-Z8300-Processor-2GB-DDR3/dp/B01ALH5EKC



Further to supermanns comment there is a similar all-one-pc with a Z8350 processor
It also has Windows 10 and 2GB RAM/32GB ROM and they are going for £76 on ebay...

Ebay Link to Z8350 mini PC
This is a great deal. I'm looking at one of these to add a cheap Windows 10 license on, cable tie it to the back of my TV and use it for Steam in-home streaming and Xbox One home streaming

Stupid money for this
In fairness this does look to be the cheapest price for the kitted out version. It's arguably not the best value device for its spec but still a nice enough bit of kit nonetheless.
Yeah this isn't much to write home about, limited performance and probably very limited upgrade/improvement chances. I really like NUC's but this isn't great to be honest. THe Asus Vivo also posted by the OP is better value and probably similar performance

I got one of these for 59. It's really slow, even on Lubuntu. Powerful enough for Kodi and Youtube. It runs cold, so I keep it in a drawer and don't hear the fan.
Worth £60, not sure if £80.
faisalqau

Has anybody used it's display port? Mine does not seem to be working.



It will be your cable. Will need to use an "active" one. Google difference active and passive DisplayPort.
Thought I'd post this here, as I think the other thread (£60 price)'s pretty dead, and I'm after some input:

Ok, got Linux Mint 17.3 installed (17.1 wouldn't). It works, but mine just feels far more sluggish than it should, even for a low power processor PC, especially in the graphics area. I've checked the main processors, and the most they're doing is about 30% each or less, most of the time, so the sluggishness isn't them. In 1080p video, it's a little too jerky, in fact more jerky than a USB stick plugged into my TV, which kills the main purpose of having it as a media player.

A good example would be a 1080p copy of Spectre I have, which when I play in VLC (or the other movie player), at the start, when the classic 007 sniper's circle appears, it doesn't move entirely smoothly across the screen, but as a series of small jerks. Other things like slight sheering effects and jumps when the camera moves quickly. It's not bad enough to be unwatchable, but it's a small if irritating distraction. Same problems with 720p files too, Incidentally. It's weird, because I've checked VLC and no frames are being dropped.

Other examples would be how a YouTube video's frame rate completely grinds to a halt if you wiggle the mouse over it.

Also having some stability issues. The screen doing the occasional strange momentary "twitch," and the occasional crash with the screen going light grey. All graphics related stuff, it appears. I'm keen to know if anyone with Linux, particularly Mint 17.3 installed is having the same problems as me, if they're not, I think I need to return it for replacement.

Also other oddities like the fact that it's impossible to get the mouse cursor in the exact top left of the screen.

I'm suspecting Mint isn't using the graphics hardware acceleration, but I'm not sure if it's because Mint has found it's unstable, or just lack of drivers. I'm not sure how to check what's going on, though. KODIUbuntu also refused to run because of a lack of hardware acceleration, and told me to check for drivers.

I'm trying to work out if I've got a duff graphics chip, or it just needs a BIOS update or something, but I haven't got the time to keep messing with it, I'm running out of time to send it back. £60 is great as long as you aren't having to spend hours trying to fix the damn thing.

In text mode/DOS, I've also had a lot of weird stuff go on. Not just the flickering I've seen someone else complain about, but also
"---------------------------------------------------------" lines appear on the screen, sort of floating on top of the FreeDOS output, as if stuck there by the graphics card. Anyone else had that?

I've never seen that on a PC before. Also when trying to run KODIUbunutu, bootup text output becoming unreadable and looking more like hieroglyphics. Weird sh*t.

Still also getting lots of other error messages, such as something about a WMID, also, errors like this when installing the wireless drivers:
"Unable to write sector 0 after 4096 Read/write error"
Which is a bit of a worry, as it seems to indicate possible issues with the eMMC.
Not sure how seriously to take all these, though, and the wifi did end up finally working, in spite of the various error messages.

What do you think guys, problems I can iron out, or have a got a bad one?

REQUEST


Can anyone who's successfully got a flavour of Linux working, run the following graphical performance test, as documented at howtoforge.com/tut…rk/ :

Open a terminal box, then install with:

sudo apt-get install glmark2

Then execute:

glmark2

I get a score of 378, which looks a bit low compared to the 3000 Nvidia example out on the website.

If others are scoring higher, then I'll know my graphics setup isn't right, and that's what the issue is.


Quick review, hardware annoyances:


Only 3 USB ports, even if they are all USB3. You can get away with 3 on a laptop, where you've already got a keyboard and trackpad built in, but 4's a sensible minimum on a nettop, 6, better. I could live with only two USB3s if I could have 2 or more USB2 ports. As pointed out by others, Win 7 likes USB2, too.

As it is, you're going to pretty much need a multiport adaptor, which is going to be more clutter and fiddling about.

No VGA, could give the Displayport a miss.

No digital out, no mic in - get what you pay for, guess.

Fan - which seems unnecessary with a N3050, guess it must work out cheaper than a bigger heatsink. It it smart, though, so it turns off when not needed - although the constant turning on and off can also prove annoying. It's fairly quiet, though.

As others have said, real shame about the lack of a auto-restart on power cut. Pointless, annoying limitation.

The keyboard's liveable, the mouse is dire.

Pluses - proper SD card slot, non of this mini-SD silliness, as is the trend. Would prefer a USB and the SD on the front, though.

Overall, at £60 I'd say it's a bit of a bargain, if you can iron out the problems, but at the same time, not astounding, either. Think I'd be feeling I hadn't got good value for money if I'd paid over £80, considering the slow processor, output limitations, lack of installed (proper) OS the amount of fiddling you have to do to get things working. Anyone paying £120 wants their head looking at, but I've always thought Nettops were a bit overpriced for what they are, which is basically a Netbook (which you can often get for about the same price) without a screen, camera, battery and often, OS.

Still debating whether to keep. Not happy with the state of it as a media player and stability side of things at present, but a handy, flexible TV based webbrowser and emergency mini PC for £60? That's not bad.

When Minitool has finished, hit the Delete key on reboot. In the BIOS, change the Boot Order so your new SSD is first. Save and Exit.6. Windows will now boot from the SSD - you'll know it has worked as it'll be roughly 10x faster. :pWhen you're back in Windows, you can go to the Disk Manager (just search Cortana for "Format disks") and safely reformat the internal HDD.




Finally got the pc last night! Was a but sceptical at first as the load times were pretty slow but I guess that's expected when it's updating but then I installed the ssd drive with these instructions and its so fast now!!! Thanks very much. It won't let me reset the Windows to factory now so im having to delete all the Acer junk apps one by now, bet I delete something important!

I deleted McAfee too and tried to install avg free but it stalls at the end ... Any reason why? Windows defender isn't an anti virus is it? Any other better free ones to try? Haven't had a pc in years !!!!

Acer have suggested this is down to a software conflict failing that a hardware driver issue but I'm not sure what exactly the cause is. Did you manage to fix this entirely? Thank you.

Seems it needs to be GPT. Ended up putting the drive back in the unit and cloning which was the safest option, although I'm now having to resize the partition afterwards because Easeus didnt give me the option to resize unallocated as part of the clone.

With hindsight that would have been the better option which I might do thinking about it. Its easier to attach the drives to another pc than fiddle about putting all the screws back in on the Acer only to remove them all again, or at least I thought! Thanks for your feedback, appreciated.

I got the i5 version with the same spec for 329 last week. not sure if it's worth the upgrade in real world terms over the i3. its a tiny machine though and a little over specified for 4k but should give a few years of good service.

I guess I was looking at resell value, £50 down from £70 is a good price and can easily be achieved so if you sell the drives and look at the price of the rest of the hardware its a good price?

The cheaper model of the celeron version came with a kingston 60gb ssd … The cheaper model of the celeron version came with a kingston 60gb ssd standard 2.5" version. Not sure why you would want to change it as 60gb is enough for windows 10 and a few media apps, with the rest of your media going on those 2 hdd's?


It does come with a Kingston 60GB ssd - I was reading a review somewhere on the net. Also the 2 *2 TB drives are in a RAID formation so out of the box you only get 2TB of additional storage. Some people (I was reading on a few forums) had some difficulty in changing this to get access to the 4TB in a conventional setup. Apparently Acer support didn't want to offer any support for this.

From what I read it seems like a change in the bios (from RAID to AHCI) & a reinstall of Windows might be required.

The celeron one plays 1080p media without any issues.I see they've also reduced the other i3 model. i3-5010 8gb 2*2TB is now £299.



The £299 one seems much better value to me. Newer gen i3, double the ram, 8 times the storage for £100.

I've bought it. You can't build an NUC to match the spec for this price.

Their stock system is seriously flawed so don't assume they actually have stock.
