Summary: I bought this to replace my power hungry gaming rig for general use computing. I installed 8GB of DDR3-1333, a Crucial M4 128GB SSD, and Windows 7 64 bit. I flashed to the latest BIOS and installed chipset drivers from AMD as the Zotac ones from their global website didn't work for some odd reason. Same goes for the wireless LAN and Bluetooth drivers even from the included DVD.
Summary: Perfect for my use, I bought it for a HTPC but haven't hooked it up yet, I am upgrading my TV shortly to take HDMI but currently just screwed it to the back of an extra monitor for now. Put in an Intel SSD and 8 GB ram and loaded Win7 Ultimate, hooked up a WD Passport drive and haven't had any issues. I haven't tried the remote. It is dead quiet, before starting the review I put my ear to the case to make sure the fan was actually working.
Pros: Small, very quiet,handles everything I've tried.
Summary: Good form factor. Easy to use. But is a bit slower than what I had expected. However I just felt that the USB ports in the back were a bit too close to each other. But was able to manage plugging in 4 USBs in the back.
Summary: This is just the type of PC I have wanted for a while. Very compact (Same size as a Wii). Upgraded to 8GB Ram. Streams very well from my NAS. Also a nice PC for my 4 year old to check out the kids sites with.
Summary: Used as a HTPC and running XBMC. It's a bit slow and tops out with 720p .mkv files (1080p files stutter on playback) XBMC runs well but can get a bit choppy when scrolling through thumbnails quickly.
Pros: Very Small and efficient.
Cons: Not powerful enough to replace a real computer.
Summary: Nach dem auspacken war ich zunächst skeptisch, wegen des leichten Plastikgehäuses. Außen natürlich Schwarzer-Klavielack, somit sieht man jeden Fingerabdruck. Das Zubehör ist zahlreich und gemäß der Zotac eigenen Webseite ist auch alles dabei. Zwei Rädelschrauben lösen, den Deckel vorsichtig lösen, RAM (4GB) und Festplatte (500GB, 5200rpm) eingebaut, Deckel wieder drauf, Kabel ran und los.Per HDMI an den TV angeschlossen.
Summary: Helt ok maskin. Stoppade i en SSD (Samsung 830, 64GB) och Win7pro 64bit och den bootar in i XBMC på under 1min i alla fall. Går säkert att optimera också, men det räcker gott. Vill man har riktigt snabb boot så får man köra sleep. Den blir dock varmare än jag trodde med den låga TDPn, speciellt den sensor som anger GPU-temperatur.
