After 4 of these with Win7 pro, they're great.

YTSEJAM "Jeffro", Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I've built/configured 4 of these so far in the last few months. They are used for email, excel, access (basically Office 2013). No complaints from users so far. I haven't had any issues with these little PC's yet. This last Zotac I received shows 1.30ghz not 1.20ghz. This has a 867 Celeron at 1.30ghz. HDMI and DVI out at the same time is nice (although I haven't tested this). 4.3 on a Windows Experience Index on Win7 pro, 4g ram, 512g drive.

Bbought used thru Amazon Warehouse

John R, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Has problems with 2 sticks of memory, as in locks up occasionally, doesn't say anything about memory voltage or anything. Does a great job with 1 stick and has sped expected from a Celeron. Good little internet computer and syncs with calendars on network. Sufficient for a shop computer.

Superior to the Atoms and E-350 ZBOX versions

Tom Servo, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: I previously purchased a similar ZBOX that had an Intel D525 Atom CPU but this version with the Celeron 857 blows it out of the water and is a better value. Intel Atom D525 passmark cpu rating: 686 AMD E-350 passmark cpu rating: 762 Celeron 857 passmark cpu rating: 1178 (Don't be bothered by the fact that the Celeron is clocked slower @ 1.2GHz it performs better) WINDOWS 7 64-bit index scores: CPU: 4.1 RAM: 5.9 GRAPHICS: 4.3 GAMING GRAPHICS: 5.4 PRIMARY HD: 5.9 BASE...

THIS is the Zotac Box you want! Not the Atom based Zotac BB units!

Tony Romeo "ElderGeek", Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: Very fast compared to any Of the Zotac BB PCs with the Atom processor in it. This maxes out at 16GB, and it will run Windows 7 x64 very well! I only have 8GB in mine, and it can stream HD, play uncompressed music using JRiver's Media Player. In short, its a great HTPC box: small and quiet. Hav had it fir almost 2 years, and has been running withou issue! There is also a "Plus" version: same specs but I think it includes Wireless a/b/g/n.

Decent machine

Julie T., Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this machine to replace my aging Acer Aspire machine. It is a decent machine, with lots of nice features. I installed 16G (2x8G)RAM, 120G SSD hard drive, and 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. Pros: The intel HM65 mother board supports up to 16G RAM, which makes GIMP & Photoshop running very fast. The Celeron 1.2G dual core runs much faster than Atom 1.8G dual core, and consumes only 3W more power.
