Review: Acer X3200 HTPC

 

Phrases like ‘low cost' and ‘home theater' are usually mutually exclusive in the Venn diagram of personal electronics. So, we were initially suspicious of Acer's...

Adequately priced for a tanking economy. Potent combination of compact size and capability. Comes with an internal slot available for GPU upgrades. Runs relatively quiet during gaming and Blu-ray playback. You can’t go wrong with a shiny black chassis...

Awkwardly placed power and eject buttons. Included speakers look, feel, and sound terrible. Dreadful performance as a gaming rig. Operating lights look like a 747 landing at night. Chintzy keyboard and mouse are practically begging to be shattered. An...

Acer Aspire AX3200-U3600A review: Acer Aspire AX3200-U3600A

 

Acer Aspire AX3200-U3600A

Strong multitasking performance thanks to triple-core processor; better features than more expensive slim tower competition.

Weak single-application performance; cheesy desktop icon clutter.

As much as Acer's Aspire X3200 surpasses other pricier PCs with its wide array of useful inputs and outputs, you'll have a hard time choosing between it and its otherwise identical dual-core Acer linemate of the same price. If you're a multitasker on a...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very nice

 

Thinking of installing Windows 7.

Nice, it does not make a sound, except for the ODD ; Vista is fast on this PC, my startup is very fast (and I use "No GUI Boot" option)

Vista, it bottlenecks the capacity of the PC and it gets HOT, not the CPU (it maintains on 40°C average) but the GPU gets to 60°C always

Happy with my purchase

 

I will reiterate what one other reviewer noted, because it is very important: you need your monitor to be plugged in to the onboard integrated video out to do the software install/setup. This caused me about an hour of frustration, because the GeGorce...

Very nice compact size. Case is really nice looking, and is designed well. I like that it comes with an external wifi antenna, although the cord could be a bit longer. Plenty of memory and CPU to do everything I need, which is mainly Photography with...

The included speakers are total junk. One of mine had a loose piece inside that rattled inside when you shook it. It would be nice if this system came with Vista discs, in case you need to reinstall. From what I've read online, Acer makes you pay...

Great machine

 

This is an amazing computer for the price. It will serve what ever you need with great performance. I would suggest picking up a Hanns G monitor as well as some Logitech stuff like a keyboard, mouse and some speakers, though the included are perfectly...

I got this computer and straight from the box its been amazing. It runs fast, has a lot of memory and can handle all my browsing, gaming, website design and much more! I'm amazed that the price for this computer isn't a bit higher than it is, and trust...

You CAN NOT put this computer down in a computer desk where the sides will be closed up. This system is so compact that all the sides must be open for the fans to work well. Also the start up when you first turn on the computer takes a good while to...

Make sure when you first boot it up you connect your display to the integrated video card and NOT the dedicated video card. You will see nothing when you boot up connected to the dedicated video card. The motherboard is set to output to the integrated...

Many ports, very flexible in terms of entertainment center connectivity

Power on button somewhat weird

Sent it back to a very understanding (as always) Newegg. We'll see how take two goes.

Great form factor, blu-ray, great port selection

Showed up fine, turned on fine, dead shortly thereafter
