4 out of 5 eggsGood units overall

Pros: Easy to install and mount to a monitor. Easily runs basic workstation functions and internet use if used for those purposes. Boots quickly and efficiently on Windows 7 w/ 8gb memory and SSD drive. I run Linux also on some (own 10 of these in our businesses) and it runs well on 4gb and transitional laptop drive w/o ssd. Handles many different USB devices without an issue. If using Windows, install the included drivers.

Cons: Will not run wireless on Linux without rebuilding the driver package as a general rule (definitely need to on Ubuntu). Out of 10 of these, 1 came DOA with a stuck power button and after 3 months of use, that just occurred to another one so I will RMA. Otherwise would have given it 5 stars.

Other Thoughts: Overall, easiest units I have found for mounting to vesa mounts.

5 out of 5 eggsbetter than i expected

Pros: good GPU, common sense design, doesn't get hot at all.

Cons: cpu is underpowered, but that was expected.

Other Thoughts: bought it to replace my home SSH/Proxy machine, but set it up as a desktop with 22 inch monitor - a lot heavier task.
it runs great - Fedroa linux as host OS, VMplayer running XP as guest. The only thing is - AMD linux drivers can be a hightmare to deal with and you need to run proprietary ones if you want GPU acceleration in VM guest.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 6 months. Bad RMA service.

Pros: Small. Quiet.

Cons: Failed after less than 6 months. ZOTAC tried to replace it with a slower, older model because this model was "out of stock". When I refused, they tried to replace it with a model that only took an mSATA hard drive. Their tech support didn't seem to know why that would be a problem.
Finally they replaced it with an equivalent intel model, ID62-U. This one has since failed after less than 2 months.
I recommend against any of the ZBOXNANO line and, given their awful RMA service, against ZOTAC in general.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy so far

Pros: Small, reliable, perfect HTPC.

Cons: Not really a con, just a concern ... CPU tends to stay at 60C and the fan spins at 3800RPM. Seems a bit high.

Other Thoughts: Some random 8G stick of budget memory
Samsung 840 SSD
Windows 7 Ultimate
WMC for TV stuff and Netflix
XBMC for movies

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Compact form factor

Cons: Unreliable, weak internal IR, terrible RMA service

Other Thoughts: Fine when it works, but I've had two of these die on me now. Time to RMA the first one was 6+ weeks. I don't have time for that; I'll be looking elsewhere.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent, but not yet perfect

Pros: I use this system to host my local media files via Windows Media Center and it plays all files perfectly. With a 1TB hybrid drive, I have plenty of space for media and file backups. Due to the small size, the system fits easily just about anywhere. The hardware has been very reliable and quiet. Even while using Handbrake to encode a video, it did not freeze and the internal fan was quiet. The included remote is comfortable and attractive. There is a mount included to attach to the back of a VESA monitor. Bluetooth and wireless internet are both included, which is great at this price.

Cons: The APU cannot handle Netflix HD streaming. The case is a bit on the ugly side. The bottom panel was a little tough to remove. The included Media Center remote does not work properly. When I used it to navigate WMC, I would press the direction button once, but the remote would act as if I had pressed it twice, thereby skipping every other selection.

Other Thoughts: To make this the perfect HTPC for me, they could do three things:
1. Fix the remote.
2. Offer it in black.
3. Offer an APU that is powerful enough to handle Netflix HD streaming.

As is, it's still an excellent device for my main use, which is playing locally stored video files.

3 out of 5 eggsNice, but service is pretty bad

Pros: Small, convenient form factor. Built in IR, wifi.

Cons: Poor driver support in XBMC/OpenELEC
Horribly slow service from MFR

Other Thoughts: The wireless was either unsupported in the Zotac builds, or very slow, so I switched to the hardwired network, which had a hardware issue. Registering the device took 2 weeks, getting an RMA approved to 3-4 weeks, I shipped it to them and just got notified it would be up to 30 days to receive a replacement. For those counting, that's 2 months to get an RMA completed. Yikes.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet setup

Pros: Small and mounts to the back of my LED TV easily. The APU is more than sufficient for streaming video content from my home server. I'm trying out OpenELEC XMBC running off a USB 2.0 Drive. Boot up is quick and the included remote works excellent with XMBC.

The APU does a fantastic job with the graphics during moves or music playback. I have full copies of my movie collection and this easily handles the DVD Menus as if the DVD was the source.

Cons: None.

Regarding Intels entry into this form factor: Since Zotac has been doing these small form factors for some time....I'm amazed how Intels entry is getting such fanfare. Zotac should do more marketing IMO. This is a great solution as a simple computer for the home, kitchen or as a HTPC. If you have a garage workshop...this would be great as well.

Other Thoughts: I'm running OpenELEC off a USB 2.0 drive for now, but I have a SSD that I'm thinking about loading into this and trying out Windows Media Center.

System fan is quite and rarely is noticeable. I have mine sitting in front of the TV for now, so I'm sure it will become silent when mounted on the back of the TV. I have a Logitec wireless keyboard with a touch pad, but the remote gives me 95% functionality in navigating XMBC, so I rarely need the keyboard.

I've been waiting to get this system for quite some time and very pleased with it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone I know or Meet.

I can see this setup behind a 23" monitor with speakers in a kitchen with a wireless keyboard Watch Hulu, Netflix, home media or watch YouTube cooking videos.

The Specs say 4 GIGS memory max, but I've got 8 Gigs and its running great. Only one memory socket, so max up if you can.

8 Gigs of Corsair Memory:
