A great computer solution that more people should know about.

Summary: It's a very light-weight, ultra-quiet, portable desktop computer that everyone should have instead of a desktop. I own two of them. They're great. We use one in our living room connected to our TV screen. We use it to stream movies and music and for all our other computer needs.
Summary: Be careful with this purchase. It comes without any software. There is a disk for a few drivers, but no operating or application software. If you have to go out and buy that independently, it's going to cost you way more than this computer. This thing is going right back from where it came from.
Summary: Over the last eight months my company has purchased 12 of these as part of a digital signage system and they have worked flawlessly. The only (very minor) problem we had is that one unit arrived with a non-functional power supply but, of course, Amazon replaced it very quickly. Most of the devices run 24/7 playing 1080p video as well as a web server and browser on TinyCore Linux.
Works like a charm....for the price, barely used condition, and ease of set-up...I couldn't be happier.

Summary: I bought the ZOTAC to replace an outdated laptop in my bedroom. I used the laptop to pay bills on , check emails, and do occasional internet browsing, so my needs were very basic. Already an excellent value for its advertised price, I ordered a USED-Good as New Condition ZOTAC ZBOX and was totally amazed....I actually got a computer that was As Good As New.
Summary: I bought this product because I wanted a compact lightweight PC. My Zbox is great! Its lightweight, compact and I can take it anywhere and hook it up to anything. I upgraded the RAM easily as it was made easy to upgrade. Lots of USB ports! Has all of the features of the large CPUs in a small package and at a great price. I love it...this company has created the wave of the future in PCs.
Summary: The product is exactly what I need. It is portable, very light and small. There is ONLY one thing that I dislike: The Zotac has no RCA/S-video output. But, I understand, this is old technology. There is a HDMI instead... I recommend this product to all of programmers and engineers.
Nice barebones HTPC for those who plan to install their own software

Summary: This is a well-made mini PC with a low profile, lots of connection options (including eSATA!) and decent performance for the size. It is based on the NVIDIA ION chipset- not the fastest out there today, but definitely fast enough to stream 1080p video or do other HTPC or basic computing tasks.
Summary: This little computer, quiet and powerful enough to check my email, and to review some spreadsheets and Word documents. It plays perfectly for these applications, without noise, without taking up space, and with a minimum expenditure of power. I recommend it!
Summary: One of the two units I bought was DOA. I ended up returning them both and spending $80 more per unit on a brand-name competing product. The things that I wish I knew before buying this - - it doesn't come with Windows (or any OS). Wasn't a big issue for me as we have tons of OEM licenses, but if you are a regular consumer, budget for a Windows 7/ Windows 8 license.
