Pros:

Small form factor. Reasonably quiet operation (fit for HTPC). Lots of connectivity. Excellent power efficiency.

Cons:

Currently writing this review on it as a desktop since it is not powerful enough to do play Netflix reliably (possibly a wireless bandwidth issue since the Explorer browser Netflix runs fine), but it certainly doesn't do Hulu well. Running Win 7 with Boxee app, Hulu app, and Netflix through WMC. I took it out of HTPC service and replaced it with a Boxee Box (much better HTPC for streaming content).

As a desktop PC it fails to browse well at 1920x1200. Most likely everything to blame for bottle-necked PCIe 1X Atom.

Poor WiFi connectivity and GPU bandwidth cripple what would otherwise be a great miniPC. Not recommended.

Other Thoughts:

Considering how stable a PC it is, I plan to use it as an efficient file/media server with some flavor of Linux in the near future. I certainly will hard-wire it to the router since the WiFi is pretty weak.

I'm still interested in trying out other Zotac's with the AMD APU.

Note BIOS needed to be updated in order to be booted from USB stick. I don't know if they are now shipping with more updated BIOS.
