EdgeCenter HTPC Hides Behind Your TV

Posted Wed Dec 16, 2009 at 01:55 PM PST by Mike Attebery

The piixL EdgeCenter 3770 is a home theater PC that mounts right onto your television.

If you’re serious about having the freedom to access all of your personal content as well as streaming internet based video and audio, there really isn’t a better way to go than an HTPC. Of course, this presents the problem of space.

Unless you’ve picked up an incredibly compact PC, chances are you don’t have a great place to put it in your otherwise organized home theater setup. The EdgeCenter hopes to solve that problem simply, thanks to compatibility with VESA mounting configurations.

The EdgeBay chassis on the EdgeCenter is capable of attaching to most flat screen televisions on the market, and can be hidden completely behind televisions 37” or larger.

Various configurations can be ordered, but the EdgeCenter doesn’t come cheap. The cheapest version available sells for around $4,000 plus $100 for shipping from the UK. Kicking everything up to full – which includes 24GB of DDR3 RAM, two Xeon Processors, and two terabytes of hard drive space – runs about $14,000.
