Summary: Excellent unit. I'm OK with screen resolution being the equivalent of 720p and not 1080p. In fact, I really see no difference, because that will depend on the resolution of a given website viewed.
Summary: Not much to say. I have a 55Gb Hard Drive, 4 Gb Ram, Windows 7 Pro and this little unit has been running over a year non-stop without a single hiccup. Streams Amazon Video gloriously through the HDMI port to my Mitsubishi WD-73732.
Quiet and low power but will not stream HD Netflix

Summary: I was hoping to use this for Netflix HD streaming in Windows 7 64-bit. Even after intalling the latest driver and the Silverlight beta 5 (which is supposed to use video decoding offload), I still could not play Netflix HD streaming content.
Summary: I purchased this item thinking that it was a "plug and play" kind of item, just like every other electronic device I have purchased in the past 10 years. Not the case with this one. I didn't read the product description properly and therefore I had to do some work to get the desktop going.
Added a 2GB DDR2 Ram and 120GB hitachi from my macbook pro.

Summary: Added a 2GB DDR2 Ram and 120GB hitachi from my macbook pro. I directly installed Ubuntu 10.4. Used XBMC on it and hooked it up to the back of my TV. I got a wireless lenovo mini keyboard to control it and It serves as an excellent media center. Well worth the money.
Summary: found out last night ( 15th Feb 2011 )that this Zotac will do 3d games. I have a Sony 32EX403 TV none 3d and I updated the driver to the lastest one from nvidia. And I noticed the 3d vision setting in the nvidia control panel. turned it on and gave me the option to use the red/blue glasses.
Summary: I bought this to be the media center for my LED Samsung TV. I haven't completed that dream yet...but only because of being in the middle of a move and waiting to close on a new house. Regardless, this ZBOX hums along just fine with Linux installed.
Summary: Very satisfied with this HTPC. Installed Win 7 Ultimate, a WD 500GB HD, 4 GB RAM and XBMC software to complete my HTPC setup. My only criticism is the included Wireless-N Network Card from Atheros is just short of useless.
Summary: Whats Good... 1. Fast CPU/GPU 2. Boots From USB or other devices with ease. 3. Small and Quiet (Quiet after firmware update) 4. DVI, HDMI, Optical, Esata...who could ask for more? 5. Makes a fantastic HTPC. Works great with linux/xbmc... Bad... 1. Needs Bios update for quieter operation. 2.
