Pros: Got this to replace a desktop that died. It was only used for internet so I didn't need anything with a lot of horsepower. Works great for internet and Netflix. Small size and inexpensive.
Cons: Works great when it works. After about two hours it gets hot and quits. Don't know if it's the ZBOX or the SSD. At least it has stopped the wife from playing mindless games on the intenet for hours on end.
Pros: Inexpensive. Came with free SSD. 6gb/s SATA. Wireless N and Gigabit ethernet. This thing is great. Honestly I know many people say this does not work well for XBMC because the processor is slow but it has been working great for me. The box boots quickly. I run Win 7 with XBMC loaded into the shell. I literally never see Windows with it. I would totally buy another one of these if they do the SSD promotion again.
Cons: Due to the slower processor loading highly graphical skins in XBMC can be slow but I will take the tradeoff. The remote receiver is not an e home receiver and when using a harmony remote should be replaced. I never tried to use the included remote however so I can't say whether that will work for XBMC.
