Style Name: Free Dos
This is a superb little machine as a basic home PC. It has a tiny footprint and can be mounted behind a monitor using the mount and screws provided. The Core i3 processor is not particularly quick but it is capable of all office tasks, basic photo editing and is also fast enough to stream media to a TV screen.

These are very quiet in operation and also run very cool so are very unobtrusive regardless of where you wish to use it. There are 2x USB3 ports and 4x USB2 but other than this, there is little room for expansion in the tiny case.

It has good wifi and the 4GB RAM and 1TB HDD are good capacity. Note that this machine is not supplied with a keyboard or mouse. If you want it as a media centre for mounting behind a TV then get a decent wireless keyboard. Otherwise I would recommend a cherry Stream keyboard and Logitech mouse.

Note that as provided, the machine has no operating system and you will need to allow for this in the cost. I have one of these with Linux installed and it is absolutely brilliant (my personal preference is for Kubuntu, but Mint is also very good).

So, I got one of these, used an old keyboard and mouse from a broken PC and fitted it behind a 17" monitor that cost me £7 from a car boot sale loaded Linux up and now have a perfectly good PC for buttons.

Style Name: Windows 8 Verified Purchase
I bought this primarily to use as a media centre, I have a large movie collection and wanted to rip my blu-ray collection and use XBMC to have all my movies in one place through a NAS. So I also bought a Samsung blu-ray drive and connected them both up, using my AV Receiver via HDMI to connect to the Revo. Easy to set up, although be aware - without a full HD TV, some of the apps on Windows 8 will not work and the screen resolution has to be set lower (I set this up on my old 720 TV to get running, but now on my 1080 TV and no problems).

As a media centre through XBMC (and blu-ray rips on HD MP4 conversion, about 10gb per file), am really happy with the picture and audio quality. There's no stuttering on playback and my audio sounds great through my 5.1 surround sound. For general web browsing it's also good and occasionally I use it to work at home so e-mail, Office etc all seem fine. It's very quiet and discreet, prompting people to ask what it is - they're pretty amazed when you show them it's a media centre and even more so when seeing a movie playing!

Overall, if you're wanting to do a similar thing to me this is probably the best all round machine out there. Like anything, you could spend a lot more on a bespoke HTPC with optical drives included, huge storage capacity etc. The cost of this, a blu-ray drive and a NAS (I use a WD MyCloud) being about £550, I've worked out that I'd have had to spend north of £700 for an all-in-one machine with a similar HDD capacity to my NAS and good quality blu-ray player.

We wanted a small but capable PC for use in the living room. This box comfortably does the job with ease. Nice and quiet (very important), responsive, easy to set up and use (Windows 8.x is different but in no way difficult).

Only gripe would be the extra pre-loaded software, but a few minutes spent in Add and Remove Programs within Control Panel soon dealt with them

Style Name: Free Dos Verified Purchase
I purchased the Revo RL80 to connect to my plasma screen in my living room and use as a media player to view downloaded films.

I chose the cheaper version without an operating system to use a copy of windows 7 I already owned. I tried several times to install windows 7, but although I appeared to have installed it correctly when the PC rebooted the Free Dos kept appearing. I installed Windows 7 using both a USB stick and a USB DVD drive and on each and every install, the Free Dos appeared.

After looking on various forums I found other people with similar problems. The only solution that seemed to work was to delete the Free Dos with a hard drive reformat. Although this meant that the drivers installed on the hard drive would also be deleted, it was not a problem as all drivers were available on the Acer site.

After reformatting the hard drive Windows 7 did install successfully, unfortunately though after downloading all the drivers to the PC, there appeared to still be a problem with the wireless card which would not connect to my router.

I contacted Acer via their site and was eventually told 4 days later that the problem was due to the PC not supporting Windows 7. After reformatting the drive yet again I installed Windows 8.1 and the PC now works flawlessly.

So to recap, this PC will run Windows 7 but the wireless card will not work and if you check Windows Device Manager you will see various exclamation marks indicating problems with the Network Adapters no matter what drivers you install, although having said that you can use the internet but you have to use an Ethernet cable. Installing Windows 8.1 will enable you to use the wireless card and no problems are indicated via Device Manager.
