3 out of 5 eggsgood value for general use

Pros: Bought 2 of these last year. These are great for general purpose computing (web surfing,email,casual gaming, etc). Comes with accesories like the vesa mount, wi-fi/bluetooth card, & IR MCE remote with a seperate usb ir sensor which really adds to the value.

Cons: One died after 2&1/2 weeks. Second was DOA. The one that worked for a while appeared to have a short(s) in the lower level traces in the motherboard. It kept giving me varying amounts of RAM installed but RAM was clean. Tested with memtest86+. Motherboard ran at 70C which was hotter than cpu or gpu. Decided to keep for parts & accesories rather than RMA. Zotac tech support was helpful & promptly responded.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to test if you buy. Mine were purchased new from here & not used or remans, so reliability maybe a little questionable with my experience, but you will have a hard time finding a better value for general purpose computing. Even with two bricks, i'm not out much with all of the parts it came with. The wi-fi bluetooth card it comes with is worth some coin by itself. Add in the MCE remote, heatsink/fan, the special sealed battery with soldered wires for the clock, & AC adapter which will be used for other stuff & it's hard to really lose much. I chose to not RMA because they were not ideal for my specific use I had in mind, but for most people they should be great for general purpose computing. Hopes this helps.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi John,

We apologize for the experience you had with your VD01-U units. We agree that they make great day-to-day computing systems and hope you will consider our products in the future.

1 out of 5 eggsUnsatified

Pros: Small with lot of ports

Cons: Since I bought this product about 1 year 8 months ago, I had never been get it setup and used until recently. I installed Windows 7 and then upgraded to Windows 10. I had been used it for a couple of days and one day when I turn it on, nothing happen. I tried to plug the power cord to a different outlet it didn't help either. At this point I knew it just died for no reasons what so ever. I am very disappointed!

2 out of 5 eggsNot happy!

Pros: Great if you are willing to max out the memory, purchase a solid state drive, and somehow get your hands on a copy of Windows 7 Starter.

Cons: I could not get any version of Linux to play well with this box because of issues with the HDMI drivers. If you run any version of Windows 7 other than Starter, you will be extremely disappointed with performance. Even with Windows 7 Starter I could not properly install Windows updates.

Other Thoughts: I submitted an RMA request not too long ago. I hope customer service is better than this purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: small size and low power

Cons: RedHat Based OS won't install, they don't like the VIA cpu

Other Thoughts: Only thing I could get to install was Ubuntu 12 and 14 server and Debian 7.4. The ethernet port would unlink itself the minute the nic was brought up.

5 out of 5 eggsFine little box

Pros: Small form factor, fairly quiet, no hardware issues

Cons: slightly weak cpu

Other Thoughts: I've owned this for about a year now and haven't really had any issues with it. Running Windows 8 and use it as a htpc with XBMC. Haven't had any issues playing back any sort of video I've thrown at it but I admit I don't throw anything very heavy at it either. Installed an SSD and maxed the RAM. Boot times are quick and haven't really seen any hangs.

3 out of 5 eggsCorrection on RMA Turn Around

Pros: As previously stated

Cons: As previously stated

Other Thoughts: Update: In the end the total turnaround for the RMA was about a month. They sent me a new unit which has been running for a week without shutting it off. I never did get a MIR form by the way. Have not checked video performance yet to see if the shearing has been corrected with the new unit.

2 out of 5 eggsEvidently you get what you pay for.

Pros: RMA was quick for approval. Support forum was also responsive and helpful. Do not have to pay for an OS. Can configure with your own drive. Small size. Does not have a horrendous ATI video chipset, and has HDMI out. Has USB 3 and BT as standard. Very portable, good price.

Cons: Needed an RMA after 3 months. Runs hot (probably can't do much about that other than engineer the cooling ports a bit better). Died after only 3 months. Does not support dual display. Needs a 19V PS.

Other Thoughts: Configured with SSD and 4GB RAM. Video pixel shearing and stutter even on SD files in WMP, XBMC, and VLC. Completly died after 3 months. After sending in RMA, it took almost 3 weeks before they sent ACK that RMA was received at warehouse. At time of writing this, min turnaround will run to 2 months. As evidenced by other reviews, it would seem that this item is simply not reliably built and prone to failure very soon after purchase, making you liable to a less than desireable RMA procedure.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for what it is...

Pros: Size. The pictures make it look small, but it is just plain tiny. Runs Windows 7 fine - forget anything else (see other thoughts). The processor performed better than expected, it exceeded the performance of an Atom 330.

Cons: Unfortunately there were a few issues.
1. The one I got completely died after about 5 days. When I say dead, I mean like paper-weight dead. I probably got a bad one from the start, maybe these other cons are related.
2. Windows XP did not run well on the machine. This seemed mostly due to poorly written drivers (Win7 x64 worked great). Vista will not even let you install (says its an incompatible processor).
3. I couldn't get any output from the DisplayPort using an DP to VGA, or DP to DVI adapter. Could be related to the bad MB I got, or the graphics card may support native DP only.

Other Thoughts: I was able to install Windows XP and Windows 7 using an SD card without any issues. The free wintoflash utility quickly turned my XP CD or Win7 DVD into a bootable SD card.

After the machine completely died, I returned it to NewEgg to purchase the AD10 instead (hoping that the DP would work with an adapter for dual monitors). The AD10 works much more as I desired. See me review there for more info.
