Summary: This product seemed to work ok initially, but soon had issues with the voice and picture syncing. Thought that with a dual processor should not have this problem. I am sure that a lot of the problems come from Windows 7 and some from Internet Explorer. IE is a horrible product that soon drags down performance, and none of the other browsers seem much better. Of course a lot of the problem is also web pages that expect high performance.
Summary: I'm only giving it a four out of five for two reasons one it doesn't tell you that its not loaded with an OS So you'll have to spend the money to buy and load one yourself not that its terribly hard to do with this. Second the video is kinda funky its not really that smooth running but, you can fix that with a few d-loads and and tweaks. Over all this thing is pretty sweet its oober quiet with a great design.
Summary: Works almost perfectly for a HTPC. Other than a slight occasional flicker from the HDMI, and the included blu ray software not able to read newly released Blu Ray discs, I am very happy with this. Works best with windows 7. Runs cool and low power, full 1080p and HD audio for my home theater.
Great for dual HD display for remote work endpoint. Very small, very quiet, not super powerful.

Summary: I bought this for use at home when working remotely. This works well for two monitors. It has a 3.4 win experience index due to processor power being somewhat worthless. Win 7 x64 ultimate. Out of the box, it will play Guild Wars and most intense Flash games. It is not super "awesome" for gaming, but it will do some of it. I have this mounted to the 3 monitor mount I bought from amazon as well, it takes the place of the middle monitor quite nicely.
Summary: In addition to wanting a home theater PC, I also wanted something I could use as a low power, always-on server. I needed it to record video from various IP cameras around the house during the day (nanny cams), back up data from my NAS to an online service, sync my music collection with various online accounts like Google Music, and do any other small, automated tasks.
Summary: There are many reviews here about this Zotac ZBOX, so I'll try to concentrate this review for those of you who lack the experience of installing operating system (OS), drivers and so forth. I received the Zotac ZBOX PC yesterday and installed operating system and drivers this morning. I had a small issue when I first tried to install the OS...the PC did not recognize my USB flash drive. Accessing the "System BIOS" by using the "Delete" key failed as well..
Summary: KILLER!!! kinda slow, but great graphics!! Small, quite, and Upgrade-able!! Im buying an SSD and more RAM, but a great place to start!!! I knocked off a star for no option to boot from usb, but not a deal breaker!!!
Summary: I bought this units to use as a front end for mythtv. 1. I installed linux opensuse 12.2 without any problems and without having to search for any module or drivers. 2. It is connected to the TV using the hdmi connection. 3. It is connected to the backend (server) wireless. The back end is some distance away in an old house with thick walls so I decided to use a repeater. The signal with the repeater is 90% +. TV transmission is perfect. 4.
