4 out of 5 eggsGreat computer for HD video

Pros: Small. Runs Windows Media Center perfectly with good response. Works great with HD Home Run Prime cable card tuner. dual-band WiFi (5 and 2.4 GHz). This helps in packed areas...until everyone else gets 5GHz, I guess.

Cons: CPU is a bit weak so sites like HBOGO and MAXGO that for some reason don't support video GPU acceleration don't work well.

No rear audio port.

Other Thoughts: Don't expect this computer to be a workhorse, but it's pretty good for making your TV "Smart" in a Windows sort of way...if you install Windows on it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Very inexpensive. Reasonably small. Has USB 3.0 on one side and Gigabit LAN on the other, so it's great for serving up files on a network. The BIOS also has an option to restore previous power state upon power loss/restoration. Great to make sure that your file server comes back up after a power outage.

Cons: Not strictly a con, but the graphics and processor are weak, so don't expect too much. Also, the pre-installed linux is HORRIBLE. Nuke it and install your favorite distro.

Other Thoughts: I bought this with the express intent of making a small file server to share my external hard drives on my network. In a headless configuration it does exactly what I need with no fuss. Additionally, I hooked it up to my HD tv. It works, but I do perceive a tiny bit of latency or frame stutter at times.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap Office Computer

Pros: Cost, Low Profile, Window 7 64 Pro Compatible,

Cons: Low Range Performance, Needs Ram to be efficient

Other Thoughts: I bought these to replace 8 GoToMyPC computers for an office. They remote into these computers and access a server for a program. The linux was removed for Windows 7 64 Pro. Installed windows/drivers/programs on the one computer and it went slow, drivers seemed to take forever to install, windows updates were a 4-5 hour process. Needs the ram upgrade to be able to function efficiently. Acer website has 2 corrupt drivers. Their LAN and WLAN. I recommend downloading the drivers directly from Intel and Qualcom website.

I would recommend this computer only for light office use, or home internet browsing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat set top pc

Pros: Stock Veriton. Wiped linux. Installed Win 7. I'm able to run Utorrent, Firefox, convert audio (in Audacity) and watch a1080p movie without problems. I bought this to replace my Acer Revo 1600 (too slow)

Cons: Acer Support doesn't provide a CARD READER DRIVER FOR WINDOWS 7 however it does exists. Google this search string: Realtek Card Reader Driver 6.2.8400.28124

I got mine at techspot. The ReadMe file indicates it's for Win 7/8 and both 32/64 versions. It took me hours to track this down. Also I'm 99% sure it's the driver listed under Windows 8 at Acer Support. but I didn't test it.

Other Thoughts: Realtek Card Reader Driver 6.2.8400.28124

Add memory if you can afford it but it works ok on 2Gb. Use CPU-Z to get memory info. Order the same and motherboard may allow dual memory mode.

4 out of 5 eggsnot a bad little box

Pros: I've enjoyed having this nettop. Got it at the $180 deal. It runs great and I've not had any issues with it. As stated by other reviews the CPU is adequate. I actually upgraded the memory and the hard drive in it and threw on FreeBSD 9.2. I use it as a file server and backup. I've fine tune the OS to work with the CPU the best it can. When I'm doing one process it usually slows the system down. It does its job. I would recommend this nettop for anyone wanting to do simple work or for a kid to just play games on.

Cons: Just the CPU but its not a big deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little PC!

Pros: Well worth the price if you want a small, affordable, and most of all COMPLETE system. Got it for under $200 and I'm more than happy with it. Runs windows 7 and 8 so far like a champ!

Didn't realize it had Bluetooth when I bought it so that was another nice surprise for the price.

Cons: Case is a little tricky to get into to add RAM/change the HDD. Not really hard, just have to be careful.

Obviously the GPU isn't going to blow you away if you're a gamer. It's a low-end Intel HD Graphics chip after all, but it's just fine for video playback and everyday use.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded the Ram to 4GB after I got it, performs even better now.

Pre-installed Linux distro was pretty useless for what I bought the system for (second desktop for day-to-day work), but I wasn't planning on using it any way as I planned on installing Windows on it.

Wish I would have bought a second one while it was on sale!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great as an XBMC box

Pros: A great deal if you can pick one up on sale. You get a complete PC for under 200. I got this to run XMBC, which it does easily. Picked this over a first-generation NUC because it comes with memory, USB 3.0 and a 2.5" drive. It's ready to run XBMC as is or you can tinker a bit.
-also has an mSATA slot
-gigabit internet
-2GB Kingston PC3-12800 SODIMM and room for one more
-320GB WD Blue hard drive
-USB mouse and keyboard
-power brick with a right-angle connector
-can be mounted behind a monitor or TV with VESA holes

Cons: It's hard to find faults with it at this price. The included VESA mount doesn't allow for as compact an attachment as I'd like.

Other Thoughts: I didn't care for the version of Linux it came with but I wasn't going to run it anyway. The incldued mouse and keyboard are very basic.
I looked up the disasembly video noted in an earlier review. Generally, the same directions apply to this unit but it should be noted it uses a different case and board design. Instead of the USB add-on board, you'll be disconnecting the audio jacks module if you go to replace the drive; there are couple more screws holding everything together than in the video. I replaced the HDD with an SSD I had left over from another build.

5 out of 5 eggsA VERY modable little nettop box

Pros: 1. Very low power consumption, between 11 to 13W at the outlet when idle.

2. The cheapest complete computer you can get right now.

3. 1.5ghz dual core ulv sandy bridge processor celeron 887

4. 2 SODIMM slots for expandability and dual channel capability

5. Intel 82579V gigabit ethernet. (Acer's driver for windows is broken)

6. Surprise! It has an unlisted msata slot

7. Atheros a/b/g/n dual band wireless with bluetooth 4.0 (AR5BWB222)

8. Relatively easy disassembly without warranty void stickers covering screw holes.

9. Very quiet. Uses a single heatpipe cooler of the type you'd normally find in a laptop. When I put my ear about an inch or 2 up against the exhaust grill, I can barely hear it.

10. Pictures might not show, but it comes with an Acer branded USB keyboard and optical mouse.

11. The 2GB memory stick is a DDR3 1600 module by Kingston, but YMMV.

12. 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front. 4 USB 2.0 ports on the back. (HM70 chipset brings a pair natively)

13. Windows 7 and 8 drivers available on Acer's website.

Cons: It's only a celeron 887...but if I needed more, I'd have paid more for the core i3 or i5 variant.

Would have been perfect had this come with a more recent chip like the celeron 1007u or 1037u, but this is most likely an older stock clearance item.

Runs a bit warm for my tastes, 42C at idle, can get up to 67C when benchmarking, but I hear that's pretty good for a case that's barely a liter in volume.

The windows LAN driver on Acer's website is corrupt or something, hope they fix it soon. Since it's an Intel 82579V, get it from Intel's website.

Slow 5400rpm WD Scorpio Blue laptop drive I got in mine was slow, but nothing special to rant about.

msata slot appears to be sata 2

Price dropped $8 the day after I ordered it.

Other Thoughts: I originally bought this nettop to replace an m-itx mini box I made for torrenting and remoting purposes I could leave on 24/7.

I powered up the computer as is to get a feel for what the stock machine was like. Linpus ran fairly well with the few applications I ran on it to test it. Couldn't even get Chrome to load, but that's more my lack of experience with Linux than the hardware's fault.

On to Windows:

Blew out the install of Linpus and installed a VL copy of windows 7 Pro x64, installed my standard suite of security and testing software. Performance was ok. A lot of page file usage due to the 2GB memory. Decided it was time to try upgrading: Found a 2GB stick of Mushkin DDR3 1066 in the bottom of my kit bag. The Veriton liked it. Even went dual channel at 1066. Was about to swap out the laptop HDD when I noticed the empty msata slot. Had a moment of indecision, use my rather old 4 year old 2.5" SSD or try out the msata slot?

After a quick run out to the local computer parts warehouse, managed to score a refurbished Crucial M4 128gb SSD for a reasonable price. Installed everything, cloned the HDD to the SSD and things are running pretty nicely. 1080p videos play quite smoothly on media player classic. Not so smoothly on VLC. Basic computer and net use is very snappy. As with any Intel HD powered computer, 3D gaming performance is terrible. Skip this device if 3D gaming is important to you.

If you want to make a basic linux powered media streamer or a basic windows powered desktop, it's hard to beat this nettop at this price, especially if you like to tinker.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent for the money

Pros: This machine makes a great Linux Mint workstation. It's cheap and works well for web browsing and other low resource tasks. I would buy another.

Cons: The Linux distro that comes preinstalled is rubbish and as a I have limited tech knowledge, it took me some time to figure out how to upgrade the kernel to 10.11 so that a Linux Mint 15 distro would work properly.

Other Thoughts: Ship with Mint 15 and everyone will be happy!
