Expert Review

15 June 2012
  • Conclusion: If you're willing to put in the work, though, this Zbox is a remarkably able (and connectable) PC for its very small size, and you wouldn't be ashamed to leave it sitting out in your entertainment rack. We bet it would out-sexy your cable/DSL modem or TV set-top box, by a long shot.
  • Pros: Very compact chassis, Runs quietly, Great video-playback performance for a small-form-factor PC, Six USB ports, including two 3.0
  • Cons: Must supply and install your own operating system, No optical drive, Relatively small-capacity hard drive, Included remote uses coin-cell batteries

Zotac ZBOX ID80 Plus Mini PC Review

9 March 2012
  • Excerpt: A new era of home entertainment is upon us. If you think about how you watch TV today versus 10 or even five years ago, it's probably a completely different experience. Nearly everything is served up in high definition, digital video recorders (DVRs) are now the norm and not the exception, and streaming services are making a big push to be the primary way in which you view content traditionally served up by cable and satellite TV.
  • Pros: Compact footprint, Low power consumption, Plenty of storage space, Affordable price point, DirectX 11 graphics, Built-in Wi-Fi, Bundled media remote w/ USB IR receiver, Supports USB 3.0
  • Cons: Weak graphics can't handle much gaming, No optical drive, No operating sytem, Slow spinning hard drive and RAM drag down performance

  • Summary: The ZOTAC ZBOX Plus ID80 is a definite improvement over the Atom Pinetrail based processors, but it gives a performance which is similar to The AMD E350 processors which were launched last year. It is great for media consumption, watching TV, watching HD content alongwith casual web surfing, working on office documents, etc. Gaming is possible only of lower resolutions - we are talking 1024x768 and lower.
  • Pros: Compact size, On-board Wi-Fi
  • Cons: Gaming performance not impressive

ZOTAC ZBOX ID80 - recenzja mini-PC

6 April 2012
  • Summary: Dla kogo zatem przeznaczony jest ZBOX? Na pewno sprawdzi siÄ™ w biurze, gdzie swoimi kompaktowymi rozmiarami pozwoli zaoszczÄ™dzić cenne miejsce na biurku, nie bÄ™dzie przy tym zbyt uciążliwy dla otoczenia (haÅ‚as). Biurowe aplikacje nie sprawiÄ… mu żadnych trudnoÅ›ci, przeglÄ…danie Internetu, sprawdzanie poczty, komunikator i jakiÅ› odtwarzacz muzyki w tle nie spowolniÄ… jego dziaÅ‚ania.
  • Pros: Kompaktowe wymiary, Bogaty zestaw zÅ‚Ä…cz, 2 zÅ‚Ä…cza USB3, ZadowalajÄ…ca wydajność w aplikacjach biurowych, Odtwarzanie materiaÅ‚u HD, Cicha praca, Bogactwo dodatków (w tym pilot)
  • Cons: Stosunkowo niska wydajność procesora w grach, BÅ‚yszczÄ…ca obudowa, Ergonomia pilota, Cena

Test: ZOTAC ZBOX ID80 Plus

3 April 2012
  • Summary: Die ZOTAC ZBOX ID80 Plus besitzt ausreichend Reserven, um hochauflösendes Filmmaterial und ältere Spiele-Titel ruckelfrei auf den Bildschirm zu zaubern. Selbst vor Blu-rays mit stereoskopischen Inhalten braucht der kleine Multimedia-Künstler nicht zurückschrecken. Dies ist unter anderem der verbauten NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M zu verdanken.
  • Pros: Vergleichsweise hohe 3D-Leistung, Ausreichend stark für Multimedia-Anwendungen und ältere Spiele, Niedriger Idle-Verbrauch, Umfangreiches Zubehör
  • Cons: Hoher Last-Verbrauch, Unter Last lauter als die Konkurrenz, Vergleichsweise zu teuer
