Feature rich, but not robust. Zotac needs better quality control

Summary: I was quite excited buying this box after reading reviews and spec over the web! I wish I would have purchased Acer AspireRevo instead. Good: 1) HDMI and S/PDIF works great 2) Lots of USB port, so you will never run out of it! 3) eSATA port provides better expansion 4) Has on board GigE, so if you want to use this for HTPC along w/ shared storage, it will work great 5) Doesn't come with any HDD, RAM, OS so you can pick and choose :) Bad: 1) Out of the box fan was very...
Summary: As with most things, this product has things it does well and things it doesn't. As most reviewers noted the onboard wifi is horrific. Seriously, it's terrible. I live in a 700 sq. ft. apartment and it could not maintain a reliable connection to my access point. My Wii, two Android phones, two laptops all have no problem but the ZBOX either could not connect or would constantly reconnect.
