The AR3610-U2002 comes with a 250GB drive...not a 160 as it says in the specifications above. The U9022 comes with the 160GB drive. Not sure why anyone would be ordering that one as the U2002 is identical, but with a larger drive and is going for less money...on amazon anyway. Only other mistake on this page is the keyboard/mouse I received with the unit were black..not white as displayed in the image.

*Plays 1080p flawlessly
*Comes with stand and tv vesa mount. Tried tv mount but unit became quite hot from the heat from rear of the tv.
*wireless keyboard/mouse are actually quite nice, chiclet style keys are great.
*Wireless N built in
*Unit is pretty much silent and runs extremely cool.

*No external wifi antenna
*Bloatware (took me about an hour to remove it all)
*2GB or RAM comes as 2 x 1GB. So upgrading to 4GB involves buying 2 x 2GB.

I'd been wanting a HTPC for a while but my interest had never been enough to justify planning out an optimum build and putting the system together. Then one of the major HTPC forum communities I lurked in started to get really excited over this system, and after some hemming and feet dragging I decided to go ahead and give it a try. It's been totally worth it, but make no mistake that you're going to be spending some time and frustration to get everything perfect. You won't be plugging it in and getting right to your media library by any stretch of the imagination.

I've been using it for close to three months now solely with XBMC running on top of a minimal install of Ubuntu. The system comes pre-loaded with Windows 7, but don't get attached to the idea that you'll be running Windows Media Center on top of Windows 7 and getting perfect HD performance. The system just isn't powerful enough for that, even if you break the warranty and increase the RAM to 4 gigs as I've done. I did try out using Media Player Classic with graphic acceleration in Win7 and got some decent results, but honestly? If all you want is something that barebones there are far cheaper alternatives that are much closer to plug and play. Western Digital has a few media drives/players that may be exactly what you're looking for. It ain't pretty, but it gets the job done. This system, though, starts to shine once you show some patience and get over whatever aversions to Linux/Ubuntu you may have. It can be intimidating if all you've ever used are Windows systems, but it's well worth the effort. Where Win7 lagged just to bring up the uninstaller for the pre-packaged software (more on that later), Ubuntu was downright snappy.

Everything the previous reviewer (4point2) said was spot on and is the reason I purchased this exact model. Amazon's pricing is kinda screwed up, so buy THIS model (the U2002), NOT the one with more reviews (U9022).

I do feel the need to add my own more unique wireless issue and experience.

I got this unit setup and was immediately experiencing very strange connection issues on my G network. I was able to get an external adapter to work just fine, and I tried all the different drivers available from Acer, upgraded BIOS and nvidia chipset, and even upgraded the firmware on my router but still experienced dropped connections and horrible/non-existent browsing capabilities.

Pretty much gave up and returned the Revo for another one only to discover it wasn't a 'faulty' network adapter as it was having the same issues.

Searched high and low and found a post about using a different channel on the router so I switched my router from Auto to 11 (didn't work), 10 (didn't work) but finally channel 9 did the trick!

Going to go through the other channels and run through some speed tests to see if any are faster, but just wanted to point this out as I couldn't find this addressed anywhere else on the web.

Overall I highly recommended this unit, and as always Amazon customer service was top-notch.

Wanted a HTPC for my Mitsubishi 73" DLP. Thought I had researched enough to ensure that the Acer Revo 3610 would meet my needs, and it almost does.
The GOOD...
Very small and noiseless package that fits nicely on a small shelf.
Optical and HDMI outputs
Remote Mouse and Keyboard work great
Very low power draw < 30 watts
The Bad
CPU is not able to render 1080P or 1080I for NETFLIX without stuttering
CPU is not able to render 1080P or 1080I for HULU without Smearing
You lose 1 768 Megs for Ram if you upgrade to 4gb (Reports 3.0 or 3.1/4) depending on Video allocations in bios

Netflix uses Silverlight which does not use the Nvidia GPU for graphic rendering.
HULU is better the netflix but not as smooth as my Desktop (Dual Core @2.6ghz)

I am hopeful that Acer, Microsoft and/or Nvidia will update their drivers to resolve he issues.

I bought this specifically to use as an HTPC for my new HDTV and I could scarcely be more pleased.

I use it with XBMC on the pre-installed Windows 7 Home Premium installation, and as another reviewer notes correctly, the current /stable/ version of XBMC (version 9.11) does not support hardware accelerated video rendering, meaning that with the relatively weak Atom processor(s), rendering full 1080p Bluray rips is out of the question; there's just not enough horsepower. The very powerful graphics adapter sits there unused.

HOWEVER! With the latest (currently beta) version of XBMC, called Dharma (version 10.0), graphics hardware accelerated rendering is now supported on Windows! With acceleration enabled I can easily play full 24 GB Bluray rips (that is to say, full, un-transcoded streams) without any stuttering or frame loss. Needless to say, every other video plays perfectly as well. runs full screen perfectly with Flash 10.1. I haven't tried much other full screen flash video; 720p Youtube videos run well full screen from what I have seen from the little I have tried them.

The included wireless mouse and keyboard have come in more handy than I had anticipated. Neither is anything to get excited over, but they each do their jobs adequately.

I knocked a star off because I had to take about an hour and a half to uninstall all the crapware that comes on this computer. Very annoying.

Ion 2 devices are coming out now and will probably be faster, but given that this computer handles perfectly the most strenuous activity I will likely ever put it through, I'm extremely pleased.
