This 32″ by Pioneer shows exactly how far AIOs have come in latest years, but also
illustrates a few problems that they still need to work on.The big 32-inch display screen means this is the ideal size for your office desktop or even bedside desk, but we should point out simply how fat it is.It’s around 15cm deep, so mounting it on a wall certainly is not possible, especially as the ventilation system would be obstructed. Given the significant number of vents on the rear, it’s not surprising to see that this device is basically silent through our game playing tests, but there is one
bug-bear – there’s a high-pitched whine that occurs from within. We’re not sure if
it’s from a fan or coil noise, but it’s always recognizable.
The big size of the screen is highly valued, but it’s rather low resolution,
at just 1920 x 1080, making the pixel structure very obvious.We’d have much preferred a higher image resolution for a
few hundred dollars more. At least it’s IPS though, so the colour,clearness and viewing angle are all very good.
Unfortunately, there is no way to change the angle of the screen,as the two feet it’s mounted on are not flexible at all.One
feature that would have definitely doubled the versatility of the screen is a TV tuner, but
unfortunately there isn’t one integrated.It’s a unusual oversight as many AIOs include
this feature,although there’s always the solution of buying a USB tuner.
Unfortunately many of the USB ports are difficult to reach though.They are on the
bottom, which means you have to lift it up every time you want to connect something
in, along with the video outputs.There is four USB 3.0 Type-A, Ethernet, three
3.5mm mini-jacks for dual speakers and a microphone, DVI-I, VGA and two old school keyboard/mouse connections.
Fortunately,there are two more USB 3.0 Type-A connections on the front side along
with two more 3.5mm mini-jacks, but there is no sign of any USB 3.1 Type-C/Thunderbolt 3 connection. A two megapixel camera is included, but it’s on the bottom, so when used in a regular desktop setup your viewer will see your chest and
neck;there is no solution to change the angle.

Packed away inside the large plastic-type boxes on the rear is a decently specced
up PERSONAL COMPUTER.Intel’s Core i5-7600 four cores raise all the way up to 4.1GHz under load,
while a decent amount of DDR4 memory is included, at 16GB. An Asus Prime H270
Plus motherboard is included; at this price we’d have preferred a Z270 based motherboard, but in fact there is no
performance difference, just fewer PCIe lanes. A significant 512GB Intel 600p Series M.2 SSD is included, which supports NVMe though just 476GB of the space is usable.
This is backed up through a mechanical WD 1TB HDD. Rounding out the techie goodies
is an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of dedicated memory. As a effect, this machine switched out
some respectable results in our benchmarks.
However,it is worth considering that it costs near to three grand – it’s possible to
build a machine twice as fast for the exact same price, but it won’t be an All-in-One.There is
also the issue of the low resolution display and absence of TV tuner.However as far as AIO’s move,
Pioneer has delivered a stable general build.
