First, as of this writing, this device does NOT play Netflix HD streaming without being choppy to the point of being unwatchable! The audio will play just fine, but the framerate of the video drops so low that you just can't watch it. BUT, notice I say "at the time of this writing", because this is NOT the fault of the Revo RL70. The inability to play Netflix HD streaming lies entirely with Netflix and Microsoft (who make Silverlight, which is what Netflix uses for streaming). The Revo RL70 can play other HD content just fine. YouTube 1080p streaming works just fine, as do 1080p video files. Netflix and Silverlight simply have a problem playing HD video correctly. It's entirely possible they may fix this at some point, so this may not be true in the future. Do a lot of searching around Google for "HD6320 Netflix HD" or "E-450 Netflix HD" and you will find this is true for many, many people. (In other words, it's not just me.)
Second, the video card is not the one listed in the technical specs on the Amazon product page. The Amazon product page says it has an AMD Radeon HD 6310 video card, but it actually has the AMD Radeon HD 6320 video card. Not a big deal to most people, but if you're trying to debug stuff and searching online for info, it's important to know.
Third, the Revo RL70 came with a Windows Media Center remote included. This was entirely unexpected because it's not listed anywhere in the product description or the technical details. A very welcome addition, especially because the remote actually has a keyboard on the underside of the remote. Very, very cool. :)
I have this device set up and running XBMC (free) as the media software and it's very, very nice. It runs really well on the Revo RL-70 and I have zero complaints.
It has no CD/DVD player, it has built in wireless network connection (fast as any laptop) and a wired network connection, It also comes with a remote control (with a tiny keyboard built on!), and a wireless keyboard and mouse.
The regular keyboard is one of those compact Keyboads with no separate numeric keypad. A little awkward to use at first(the keys seem a little close together, and the keys aren't all in places where you might think they should be. The mouse is OK. However both are connected to the tiny PC by the use of a tiny USB reciever (stored for travel in the battery compartment of the mouse.) This means that if you just can't get used to the keyboard/mouse combination, you can replace it with a 3rd party combo to your liking. On the whole though, I think I like the KB/Mouse combo. I see myself using it with other compact computing devces, with standard USB connectivity, why not?
Clearly, this device was designed to be connected to a TV for use as the heart of a home theater system. I intend to use it that way, but first I wanted to get a feel for it as a PC since it will also be used as a secondary PC as well and that is the perspective I'm really coming from at this point. I will update after I connect to the TV. It comes with those Ad supported versions of Word and Excel (I wish they still had MS Works!). As a document editor platform it's pretty good. Adequate for the 'home use' word and number processing that it was designed to do. It clearly isn't a high volume document processor.Read more ›
For XBMC, you'll want to make sure hardware acceleration (DXVA) is enabled, otherwise 1080p will stutter.
The form factor is nice as well, with a wireless keyboard/mouse combo included. I was pleasantly surprised to find a WMC remote included as well. This remote also works within XBMC. As IR support is there, you can optionally program your Harmony remote to control the RL70 while in XBMC and WMC.
1. Increase RAM to 4GB. The unit comes with 2GB and another 2GB is normally under $20
2. Go into BIOS and change memory buffer from AUTO to 512 (very important)
3. Delete the McAfee anti virus, and replace with Avast or Microsoft Security Resources. McAfee is a system hog and I can't see why anyone uses this garbage anyway. It works fine, but there are LOTS of free anti-virus programs that are just as effective. Uninstall this immediately!
4. It has built in wireless, but if you can actually plug-in with an Ethernet cable you will have significantly better performance.
I bought this as a refurb unit and it looks like new! There was an issue with the accessories that were missing and the seller (Secondipity) gave me a partial refund to buy the missing accessories on my own. Can't ask for better service than that!
Great machine - highly recommended for a HTPC, probably not the best for a desktop unit though.
