This review is from: Zotac ZBOX-ID89-U Intel H61 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 2500 Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Pros: This "kit" comes without RAM or HD so that you can choose your own which is something is wish more manufacturers would do. This system is very well made and also complete...even the antennas that are included have metal bases, they are better made than any other antenna I've seen anywhere for this style. I normally build my own computers and not easily impressed with "OEM" systems, however this one in my opinion is worth the money.
Cons: I would say Zotac understates the quality in their advertisement, so based solely on that this system seems a little more expensive than other offerings making me apprehensive about trying this product. Also it would be nice if all of the USB ports were 3.0 instead of 2 2.0 and 2 3.0
Other Thoughts: This system was purchased for my grandmother who wanted something that would mount behind her monitor. I paired this with a 500GB Seagate Solid State Hybrid Drive and 8GB of G.Skill RAM Running on Windows 7 Pro x64 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178339 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231295
This system runs almost as fast as an SSD desktop system, but I knew I would be giving up a little speed for capacity with the Hybrid SSD. I would definitely not hesitate purchasing another one of these setups (choosing my own RAM and HD) for a setup that needs to be small. I am very impressed.
More importantly, my grandmother is impressed with its size, speed, and ease of accessibility. Her age limits her ability to crawl under a desk to access the system, and her lack of desktop space limits putting a full size system up on the desk. Mounted behind the monitor, she needs only to spin the monitor to access the ports.
If you are replacing an existing desktop system (which typically have a lot of USB devices to plugin) I would recommend also grabbing a couple of USB 3.0 hubs... one to stash behind the monitor with some mounting tape for more permanent USB devices like keyboards, printers, webcam, ect...... and one for mounting to the base of the monitor stand for easy access to random devices like usb thumb drives ect.
GREAT JOB Zotac!!!!
