ASRock had clearly done a good job of bringing a sharp looking mini PC to the market that looked good and offered some strong performance. So when we got word of the new Ivy Bridge based models being released, I knew that it must be mine. Having been using the VisionX for a while now you can't deny the joys of having a proper PC against ASRock VisionX typical "Media Player". Let's take a quick moment to cover what's going on with the box today before we move inside the box itself and take a look at the bundle. Having a look at the front of the box you can see it's fairly simple with a really clean look. We've got a picture of the device, a bit about the VisionX series on the right and along the bottom we've got a number of logos along with mention of some of the main features.

Turning the box over we've got some pictures and a quote from the V.

Across the bottom of the box we also again see some of the main features that are included. Moving away from the box itself and into the bundle you can see there's ASRock VisionX not a whole lot going on.

When you think about it, though, you don't need a lot outside the actual unit itself. Looking below you can see the normal line up of paperwork as you'd expect along with a driver CD. To round off the bundle no HTPC is complete without a remote. With the box and bundle looked at it's time to get into the VisionX itself which ASRock VisionX can see below. On the dimension front we're looking at mm W x 70mm H x mm L with a total weight of 3. While available in two colors you can see we've got the black one today which we prefer over the silver version. Of course this is going to come down to pure personal preference and more than likely the color combination of your TV area will influence your decision. Moving in closer to the VisionX we start at the front which has the ASRock and THX logo below a slot based Blu-ray combo drive which helps make for a really clean look.

Moving to the bottom of the device we can see a number of ports. Starting from the left we've got a headphone and microphone jack. As we continue to move across we've got two USB 3.


Finally on the far right we have the power button which has a blue LED behind it that lights up when the machine is up and running. Around the back of the VisionX you can see we've got a whole lot going on. Starting with the top you can see a clip that helps remove the top of the casing and next to that we have a Kensington lock area. Moving to the bottom of the unit on the left we have our DC in port which is used with the included power adapter. Next to that ASRock VisionX can see five auxiliary ports along with an optical out port.

There is support for 7. Continuing to move across we've got a Gigabit networking port along with two more USB ASRock VisionX.


As we clip open the top and undo some screws on the inside we get an idea of what's going on inside the VisionX. Opening it up I really found myself surprised at just how good looking the unit was with ASRock VisionX copper heatsink and heatpipes being the major stand out.

Looking at the insides you can see we've got a really clean setup ASRock VisionX on. Considering the tight space you of course need as much room as you can get so the air can move throughout the system. We would have preferred to see an SSD here, but we can't have everything our way.

Moving in a bit closer we get a better look at what's going on and the ASRock VisionX surprise was the inclusion of the mSATA port towards the bottom of the case. Removing the standard 2. To the right you can see the If you look a bit closer you can see towards the top right we also have a spare SATA port in the event you want to throw a second drive into the mix.


If we look at the top half of the inside you can see there's not a whole lot going on. You can see the Blu-ray slot drive and GB hard drive that we've already mentioned along with a small fan which helps move some air around ASRock VisionX case.

Firing up the VisionX the first time we had to take the time to install Windows 7 as the system didn't come with an operating system installed in our case. We installed off a USB 2. Considering the nature of the system as well, you probably don't need an ASRock VisionX. With that said, though, if you wanted to increase the overall snappiness of the system, a small sized SSD ASRock VisionX go down extremely well - especially if you're going to be watching content via the streaming of a server, NAS or your main PC. The need for a massive amount of storage may be unnecessary. With Windows installed, all the drivers along with our important codec packs, the system ran like an absolute dream.

As we mentioned earlier, from a specification stand point of view, the VisionX is actually quite stacked. ASRock VisionX a playback perspective the VisionX really can handle anything you throw at it thanks to the specifications and power it possesses. Once all that was installed it was time to install VNC. Instead of a wireless keyboard or mouse I've always taken a slightly different approach to my HTPC setup and this time is no different. With the help of my Apple iPad mini tablet and VNC, I use remote desktop to control what's going on with the screen in front of me. VisionX Series.
