5 out of 5 eggsDoes as advertised and a bit more

Pros: . Small form factor
. Low power usage
. Discreet but soldered-on GPU; some tasks can be GPU-accelerated

Cons: . CPU is really not powerful; don't compile a Linux kernel on this

Other Thoughts: It's a computer in a living room. For the price, over the years, and taking in account that it has a bluray player, it's been quite the satisfying little thing.

1 out of 5 eggsOK at best but a product should last more than 6 months

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Struggles with more than few apps running, video stutters, and now - 6 months in died.

Other Thoughts: running Win8

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Show

Pros: Small form factor allows for out of the way positioning. Does everything that large PC would do. Windows & installed on the one that I own with ease. Did another for a friend and installed Windows 8...he loves it. I have owned mine for over a year and I have it in my guest room and when I have visitors or family stay with me they are amazed at its functionality.

Cons: None that I can mention. If you are looking for high speed performance you should look to a larger computer. This computer fits the need of getting a HTPC at an economic price. Although I wish they would put them on sale every now and then. I know I would grab some up.

Other Thoughts: Want a HTPC that you can put out of the way...this is it. Want one that you can display with pride...this is it. Zotac did a great job designing this one. Wish they would put out a newer model that is capable of handling 8-16 GB of memory...it would then exceed the needs of many. I know I sound all positive about this PC as if it has no faults...for me it doesn't, in your case you might find one or two. I did not and I love the product...good job Zotac...oh yeah...where is my refund???

3 out of 5 eggsZotac ZboxHd-ID34BR

Pros: cheap & is mostly everything I want in a HTPC except below. If I can get Blu ray to work, this would be perfect.

Cons: Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 software does not play BLU Ray. It advises that I need to "update" the software for it to work but when I click "yes" for the update, it still doesn't work. Cyberlink also no longer supports PowerDVD 8. I have sent a message to Zotac but have not gotten a response.

Free 4MB of ram shipped with machine was wrong pin type. Didn't fit. Needs more than 2 MB stock

Other Thoughts: I haven't RMA this yet because I really like the machine except for the Bluray player. DVD's work. If I can get a solution, then I will keep it. I'm running this with Windows 7.

4 out of 5 eggsAddition to my other review

Pros: see other

Cons: see other

Other Thoughts: just a heads up, there is an nvidia update for the graphics that seemed to crash my system at least twice a day until i rolled it back. maybe just my system but no probs after rolling back.


On Tue 2/26/2013 6:24:00 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\022613-10030-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys (nvlddmkm+0x7241C0)
Bugcheck code: 0x1000008E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFFFFF939521C0, 0xFFFFFFFF965E26A8, 0x0)
Error: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys
product: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 314.07
company: NVIDIA Corporation
description: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 314.07
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode program generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: nvlddmkm.sys (NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 314.07 , NVIDIA Corporation).
Google query: NVIDIA Corporation KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M

4 out of 5 eggsNice little system we got here

Pros: Slim and sleek set up. BR drive is a plus if you are in need of an included drive. Upgraded to 4gb ram and slapped in a 256gb ssd and this baby is purring right along!

Install of windows 7 went well and all the drivers were loaded nicely with the help of the included driver cd.

HDMI works great on my 26" tv.

Cons: Wish it had more usb ports. But thats what they make a hub for huh? Analog on the front is kinda stupid. Most people I know don't have an optical computer speaker setup and having a 3.5mm plug always coming from the front is not only tacky, its a bit cumbersome when using the front usb 3.0.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a desktop replacement. I don't do any gaming, CAD, or anything memory/cpu intensive so this was an easy choice. Are there cheaper models out there? Sure. Are there smaller options out there? Sure. Could I have bought a laptop with better specs for just as cheap? Sure. But I didn't. And I'm glad I didn't. This won't be for everyone so please do research on it first. Google and YT are your friends :)

And yes, the blue light can be turned off. And yes YOU WILL NEED AN OS to install.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Deal

Pros: This machine is really a lot of bang for the buck. I just got it in, and Windows 7 32bit was a snap to install. I upgraded the machine to 4Gb ram and that was cake as well. I haven't had an opportunity to try the HDMI ports yet, but the driver disk that came with the machine was very easy to use.

Cons: It does feel a bit flimsy, but I expected as much for $279. I really can't complain though. The machine is plenty fast for what we're using it for.

Other Thoughts: At this price, if you can sacrifice the capacity, I'd strongly recommend a good sized SSD. The 250Gb that this comes with is fine, but solid state would really make this thing sing. I chose to stay with the analog drive because it works and it has descent capacity.

4 out of 5 eggsNetflix HD on Windows 8 :)

Pros: Finally got Netflix HD to work, the solution is Windows 8 since it has a native app. Hulu Plus also works well here.

Cons: Some video content accessible only through the browser will not play well due to hardware acceleration issues with ION and 3rd party plug ins

Other Thoughts: 2GB's RAM is all used up by the time Windows is up and running. You're going to want 3 or 4GB.

3 out of 5 eggsWi Fi Wonder

Pros: Small. Slimline Bluray player w no ugly doors to drop dvd in. Powerful enough to play HD content with only a very small amount of jag in first second of playing video.

Cons: I work in IT and have installed many wireless setups. This one came with 4 or 5 extra drivers for the wifi and none of them or ones i googled would let this thing see a ssid. Sure it installs fine but right out of the box my wifi was dead , so i am waiting on replacement from newegg. seen other reviews with the same wifi issue

Other Thoughts: without an OS this thing should be $50-$75 cheaper. Does run warm!

5 out of 5 eggsSo far alright

Pros: WAF met at first look. This unit replaced a new Mac mini i7 for media duty and it's almost the same size.
Silent
Looks GOOD
BlueRay
Mostly metal case helps with heat
$250 with rebate. $600 less than the i7 Mac and it's running just as fast or faster.

Cons: Runs warm, but it's been cranking for over 4 hours now, I just won't park anything to the right of it.
Can't drop another processor in.

Other Thoughts: Dropped in another 2Gb Crucial, hooked up power, monitor and keyboard and powered it on. Sucked the 64bit Win7 DVD in and loaded and booted on it's own in 40 minutes. Spent the next 3 1/2 hours downloading and updating drivers, defender, VLC, etc. wireless works too.
Only showing 3.3 for processor on Win Experience score and device mgr. shows 4 cores, so???
Have plug it in and see how it does in the living room tomorrow, HDMI -> Yam Receiver -> HDMI -> LG Plasma, Logitech K400 and a couple of WD 2Tb external drives foll of MKV, AVI...
and maybe try Win8 soon.
