Summary: I had a Zbox AD10 for 5 months, barely used and it wont boot know. See to had overheating issue. The Zotac support is awful. Will need to wait for about 2 month to get my new Zbox. Will never buy any Zbox again.
Summary: Used as a HTPC for my cousins. Works great. 1080p playback isn't very smooth with VLC or MPC-HC, although tweaking would probably wort that out, but XBMC plays back everything flawlesly. good set of inputs and outputs, sleek looking, good value.
Pros: small, power effecient, looks nice, built in card reader, remote, vesa mount, wifi, USB3, esata, hdmi, dp, etc
Cons: not a power house by any means, loud fan keeps changing speed.
Summary: Wow! I got this computer for my brother-in-law after his laptop died on him. I recovered his old hard drive, popped in 4GB of memory, and got everything set up. My intent was to have a computer able to work with Skype, the internet, and not much else. What an amazing little box! It's more poweful than the Sempron 2500+ with GeForce 6600GT full sized computer in my daughter's room, clocking in around 8500 on 3DMark2001.
Pros: Powerful computer in a little box! Pop in a hard drive, memory, and GO! Great USB, Wifi, Card Reader, onboard CPU/GPU.
Cons: Lack of DVD drive means some complications setting up. Only HDMI out.
Summary: Great little device, powerful enough to play back 1080p videos. I use it in the office to do video conference, it hangs behind the TV , I hooked it up to a HD webcam works great with skype. If you get a USB hug to expand USB ports, get a powered USB hub.
Pros: Small, Wifi, energy efficient, bluetooth 3.0, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0
Summary: I bought this to replace a full-sized HTPC build that I had built in the spring of 2011. The E-350 runs between 65C and 75C under load when watching HD video content and does a great job of doing so. The AMD chipset (Radeon 6310) also allows bitsteam audio for playing Dolby True HD and DTS MA HD blu-ray streams. It also allows playback of high definition audio as well. I originally ran the mini-PC with an SSD and it ran quite well.
Pros: Size. Great HD Video and Audio Bitstreaming
Cons: Processor a little lacking. CPU temperature causes hard drive to run warmer (high 40's).
Summary: Picked this puppy up as a high def/ entertainment system. I've very happy with its performance for the most part, however the e-350 apu still isn't overly speedy. Love the fact Zotac finally ditched the internal antenna for the wireless, and went to an aluminum body. The addition of a wireless media center compatible remote was a nice touch as well even if its glossy plastic.
Pros: Incredibly small , fast.
Cons: Runs a little loud, but considering its size not really a con.
