The ASRock ION 330HT-BD features six USB 2.0 ports, LAN, HDMI, VGA, a powered eSATA port, five audio jacks and an optical S/PDIF output are part of the package. There is also a small DC-in power connection for a Delta Electronics 19v AC/DC adapter. The "Home Theater" version of the Asrock Ion 330 comes bundled with a Media Center Edition remote control. This should provide a convenient way of watching movies or listening to music from the comfort of your living room couch, completing the 330HT-BD as an ideal HTPC solution.

Whenever we look at Small Form Factor (SFF) systems or even laptops, we often come away thinking much could be improved or added. This was not the case with the Asrock Ion 330HT-BD. Perhaps the biggest disappointment remains the Atom processor, as...

Benchmarks: HD Tune So, how did this HTPC hold up in the testing and benchmark arena? For starters, I ran the 320GB 2.5″ drive through HD Tune 2.55. As you can see through the screenshot above (click for the big version), it came out with an...

The ASRock ION 330HT-BD is a product which really should appeal to everyone who is looking for a HTPC where gaming is not a priority. The system was completely stable throughout our testing and near silent in operation; in fact it was often hard to...

This compact nettop looks smart, but you'll need to supply your own operating system and Blu-ray playback software....

First off, this is a pretty silent unit, the only thing that actually makes a bit of noise is the Bluray player if you decide to use a disc. I was able to run 720p without issues from a .iso file but the unit is not able to play a 1080p although the...

I'll admit it, I am thoroughly impressed with ASRock's ION 330HT-BD. From a HTPC or NetTop standpoint, the system is simply superb. Blu-ray & DVD playback was perfectly smooth, even watching online HD videos was an enjoyable experience with...

The ASRock Ion330HT box is a two edged sword. While we were impressed with the HD support of the Ion and the quite delay-free operation under Windows, we have some issues with the box itself. The 3cm fan is a bad idea, because it's not possible to...

The integrated Intel graphics found on most nettops and netbooks really cannot handle much in terms of OpenGL applications or games, so for this comparison we largely looked at the 2D / X Render performance between the Intel 945 IGP and NVIDIA's ION...

Home Theatre PC’s or HTPC’s have been around for a few years now and are very popular. Most people use their old PC for a HTPC. The problem with that is that they are loud, not that powerful, and take up a lot of space. Well ASRock has got...

There are plenty of companies offering ION based netbooks and nettops these days. Most of them have very similar spec sheets and thus the price becomes the only deciding factor. ASRock has taken a different approach with the ION 330HT-BD. This...

ASRock’s diminutive Ion 330HT-BD ’nettop’ media centre is brilliant if you’re an avid movie watcher with a large collection of digital media or Blu-ray discs. It’s head and shoulders above any Blu-ray player or media...

In this industry it's important to keep an open mind. It's rare that hardware that has traditionally been, to put it bluntly, crap, can suddenly turn around and take a big bite out of the WIN cake. It can happen though, and the combination of...

The ASRock ION 330HT-BD system is definitely a major leap forward for ASRock. In fact, ASRock has incorporate a number of our suggestions in our earlier review and they include remote control, eSATA/USB powered ports, WiFi-N. ASRock has also listened...

International Review By PCMweb on 90

De Asrock ION330 HT BD is een erg leuk apparaat voor wie een stille, flexibele htpc zoekt. Het ION-platform speelt alle hd-formaten zonder problemen en de Atom 330 is zuinig en redelijk vlot. De Blu-ray drive is een leuke, maar dure toevoeging....

NVIDIA esitteli ION-markkinointinimeä kantavan ja Intel Atom-prosessorille tarkoitetun piirisarjansa jo yli vuosi sitten, mutta valmiita siihen perustuvia kokoonpanoja markkinoilla on edelleen hyvin vähän. ACER oli yksi ensimmäisistä, joka julkaisi...

La serie ION 300 de ASRock nos ha dejado un gran sabor de boca; el ensamblaje de todo el hardware es fascinante, con disipación pasiva a excepción de un pequeño ventilador en la zona trasera para expulsar parte del aire caliente que se...

Funktioner och specifikationerI dag tar vi en titt på en mycket liten HTPC från Asrock. De skickade oss ett testexemplar på deras ION 300HT-BD där BD står för en Bluray-enhet (så att vi kan använda Blu-ray på...

Når man skriver HTPC på kassen til et produkt, så er der i min verden tale om et komplet mediecenter med software, TV-kort med optagemulighed, og alt tænkt for dig. Det er ikke tilfældet med ASRock ION 330HT. Men som...
