GET ONE

CJ G., Newegg

  • Summary: These little boxes are amazing. Swap out the standard HD for a SSD and you're ready for anything. Install OpenELEC, hook it up to your network and set up with your file server and you have the best HTPC experience I've seen.
  • Pros: Best home theater PC out there
  • Cons: Had a fan go dead, but no trouble getting it replaced

Nice compact little PC

Kyle K., Newegg
6 May 2014
  • Summary: I got one of these to test using as a RDP workstation into a server 2008r2 box using NLA. Works great! SIMPLE Ubuntu installation, with everything working out of the box: no driver hunting required. Included VESA mount to mount on the back of monitors is sweet. I have a feeling I'll be ordering a LOT of these!
  • Pros: -Small (duh)
  • Cons: -if you need VGA you need an adapter like the BYTECC HM-VGA005 (confirmed working great, PNP)

Great when it works

  • Summary: It worked great for about 1 year then dead. No lights or anything on unit. Checked power supply and its good. HDD and ram still good. Unfortunately it was 1 month out of warrenty when it died. If all the negative reviews where there like they are now (here and other retailers) I would not have bought this.

Waiting for third replacement.

Anvil404,, TigerDirect.com
11 July 2013
  • Summary: I'm waiting for my third AD12-U. Originally purchased Feb. 27, 2013. First unit started to randomly shut down after one month. No temp issues, etc. RMA April 6, received second unit three weeks+, died completely mid-June. Had some hassles with mfg. website registering second box but generally they respond well. They received the second RMA delivery on July 3rd but I have not heard from them since second RMA approval notification. I'm waiting semi-patiently.

Zotac AD12 Temperature, Wifi, LAN, IR Remote

  • Summary: For the benefit of prospective buyers (I'm a frequent Amazon user, but discovered this item after I had ordered it on Ebay), Here's how I got a satisfactory HTPC out of this micro-PC. I installed 4Gb of ram. Make sure you specify notebook ram, like this: Kingston KVR1333D3S9/4G DDR3-1333 SODIMM 4GB Notebook Memory Add any notebook Sata Hdd; I used a 1Tb sata Hdd to have room to record TV. Problems: 1.

ZBox

sgudde, Amazon
8 April 2013
  • Summary: Easy to use..great product! I replaced my huge CPU with this product. Very light weight. Takes up very little space...I can hook it up to any monitor or flat screen tv so I have no more use for a laptop. Zbox is much smaller and lighter weight than even a laptop! I am extremely pleased with this product!

runs fast for what it is

  • Summary: Zotac makes awesome video cards, but their PCs are awesome too. I put 8gb of ram and a 5400 RPM 1 TB hard drive in mine, comes with 3.0 BT as well, well worth the $200.00 for it even without a hard drive and ram...mines running windows 8 and runs awesome..
