  • Summary: This machine is great! I use it as an HTPC in the living room, running Openelec (XBMC). Plays everything smoothly and runs quietly.

No replacement fans available

Batumi, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Had happily bought a Zotac zbox a while ago, and loved it ....until the fan started to wear out (which will happen pretty soon, google for it you'll see). Now, the thing is Zotac DOESN'T sell replacement fans, and they are custom made. So, after a while, you might as well throw the box. Never again a Zotac, at least not until they fix this burning issue. And I recommend you to buy something else. BTW they almost never release any firmware updates.

Limited resolution

E. Dench, Amazon
16 June 2013
  • Summary: Cons: Out of box the driver only appeared to support 1680x1050 maximum resolution. Although, the Ivy Bridge is supposedly capable of driving 2560x1440, after some effort, I was only able to drive that resolution at 30 Hz (over DVI). That's completely s***ty. There is also no DisplayPort on board, which some people suggest might make a difference. I don't see how, unless it's between the chipset and the monitor.

  • Summary: I highly recommend you to install two 1600MHz RAM and a SSD. Being very satisfied by its performance, I think it is the only zbox, at this point, to be used as a fancy daily desktop. I connect it to a 27 inch screen with speakers, which finally makes my table clean and tidy. I would appreciate it if the price could go down below $350.
  • Pros: flexibility,mobility and performance. Easy to install.
  • Cons: a little noise

Excellent product, very solid so far

Cyrus, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: I'm using 3 of these in a Linux-based special project where they are asked to a significant amount of processing on a continual basis. Not one of them has crashed yet. And they're almost completely silent. With an SSD drive and a little bit of memory, this is an incredible all-in-one machine for not much money.

Great Little Ultra portable

Tom Allen, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: This PC replacement works very well. It has all the power and performance of a desktop PC without the size. My only complaint would be the less than stellar outside plastic covers. They appear to be a little cheesy and flimsy. Otherwise, I really like it.

simply amazing

Eagl3, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: The reason I bought this is because it is able to stream 1080p and do it through web applications such as youtube & silverlight. No chopping what so ever; extremely fast. I ordered this after returning a similar product but with Foxxcon AMD A45 APU. The AMD APU based book size system was complete garbage, it would barely play 720p youtube videos and streamed only in low quality from silverlight (i.e. netflix).
