Elonex Pro Sentia 1070Media Center Edition review

Price when reviewed

The speakers themselves are fine for general use; TV viewing doesn’t suffer too much from the lack of bass and they’re loud enough to let you sit a reasonable distance away. If you’d prefer a richer sound, you can add a set of Creative Inspire P580 5.1 speakers for £40.

Elonex Pro Sentia 1070Media Center Edition review

The Elonex is largely on a par with the uninspiring RM One Media Center Edition PC (see p62), which offers much of the same, apart from the touchscreen. But, overall the Elonex isn’t as well designed – the two accessible USB ports are too close together for devices (such as a flash drive) to be used simultaneously, and digital camcorder owners will be disappointed by the lack of FireWire.

In its favour, Elonex provides a decent warranty package. The three years provided as standard is reassuring. The first year is on-site, with the following two a more average return-to-base policy. You can upgrade this to a three-year, on-site, next-business-day policy for an extra £35. It’s a good base system, but while the touchscreen with MCE is a nice idea, the 1070 ultimately fails to impress as an overall system.
