TechSpot: Asrock Vision 3D HTPC review

Asrock's Mini PC line has expanded with the recent introduction of the Vision 3D HTPC, by far their most ambitious model yet.

Asrock went back to the drawing board and came up with the Vision 3D series. This HTPC goes beyond what we've seen in the past packing both a powerful Intel mobile processor and a mobile Nvidia GeForce graphics part. Basic specs also include 4GB of DDR3 memory, a Blu-ray drive, 7.1 audio output, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi n, a 500GB hard drive and gigabit LAN.

The Vision 3D HTPC features the GeForce GT425M GPU which brings support for 3D Vision (stereoscopic gaming using shutter glasses) and 3DTV Play, letting you connect your HTPC to 3D HDTVs and play 3D Blu-ray movies and gaming content.

Ive had problems with connecting a pc to a 3D HDTV, upon furthet research I found that some graphics chipsets aren't compatible with some 3D HDTV's. So I recommend that before purchasing a 3DTV make sure it's compatible with your graphics chipset and viceversa.

Even still nice little machine to have

I'd like to switch to a small guy like this because my current HTPC is a behemoth in an HAF 932 case. It's gigantic because it has six terrabytes of disks in it. Even with gigabit wired ethernet, I don't like having my media on another machine because it slows down thumbnailing and stuff in Media Center. I see the size of this Asrock machine being both a boon and a detriment.
