Dell Zino HD 410 HTPC Review

 

Dell is one of the leading vendors in the PC market to have a play in the SFF HTPC (small form factor home theater PC) space. In 2009, they introduced the first Zino HD HTPC, the Zino 400. It used the AMD's Athlon 64 2650e/2850e / Athlon 64 X2...

Dell Inspiron Zino HD 410

 

Dell's squarish Inspiron Zino HD 410 compact desktop PC is back, with a few impressive tweaks to make it even stronger than it was before. But the internals of this tiny, black PC aren't the only things that Dell amped up: The price of our configured...

Built-in Blu-ray ; Integrated Wireless-N support ; Customizable case top

Pricey for what it offers

For its size, you won’t find a more well-rounded system than Dell’s Compact PC. It's speedy,connected, and ready for next-generation movie discs.

Dell Inspiron Zino HD (AMD Phenom II X4) review: Dell Inspiron Zino HD (AMD Phenom II X4)

 

Dell's new $750 Inspiron Zino HD features beefier specs than the model we saw previously , and with a Blu-ray drive and upgraded graphics power this is now an especially capable living-room PC. Despite its bolstered features, the Zino's slow computing...

Blu-ray, wireless networking, and HDMI make this tiny PC ideal for serving up living-room content; streams online HD video flawlessly; can play forgiving 3D games thanks to discrete graphics card.

Comparably slow productivity performance; upgradable slim-tower competition offers more potential and faster performance for a lower price.

With its thoughtful features, Dell's charming little Inspiron Zino HD is perfectly suited to serve up HD content to your living room. We wish it had more general computing speed, and design purists will find the Mac Mini more sophisticated, but on...

Dell Inspiron Zino HD

 

The ideal home-theater PC is capable of dishing out high-definition media, while remaining unobtrusive--qualities the Dell Inspiron Zino HD excels at. The miniscule 8-by-8-inch shell will fit about anywhere you can think of, is whisper-quiet, and can...

Slick design ; Good performance for its size

Priced similar to more-equipped value tower PCs ; No upgradability

The Inspiron Zino HD provides impressive connectivity and performance in a colorful and compact enclosure.

Dell Inspiron Zino HD

 

While our review sample doesn't quite have the power to be a usable HTPC, if you're willing to spend a little more Dell offers the upgrades to get there.

Living-room-friendly design, Better than nettop performance thanks to AMD CPU, 802.11n networking rare at this price, Easy to hook up to your TV via HDMI port

Integrated graphics chip chokes on HD and some standard-def video sources

Dell Inspiron Zino HD (Inspiron 400)

 

The Zino HD earns a half-point for the software it includes (a 15-month update subscription to McAffee Internet Security) and well as for what it omits (all bloatware). I applaud Dell for eliminating bloatware on its configure-to-order and retail...

Compact form factor. Quiet. Customizable top cover. Two eSATA ports. 15-month McAfee subscription. Optical drive. No bloatware

Poor 3D performance. 64-bit OS, but only 3GB. Blu-ray is an option. Wired keyboard and mouse

The Dell Inspiron Zino HD's compact design is derivative of the Apple Mac mini, but it has all the connectors it needs to sit under that big HDTV you bought last holiday season.

Dell Inspiron Zino HD Review (Late 2010 Update)

 

Dell's little box that could has been humming along for a year now, offering Windows users a similar experience to the one that Mac Mini buyers have enjoyed.

Dell Inspiron Zino HD (410) HTPC Review

 

With the set-top box and Internet-connected televisions dominating the home theater space as of late, dedicated home theater PCs have become less useful from the standpoint of the mainstream user.  However, there's still a niche space for those looking...

Dell Inspiron Zino HD - Little Pleasures

 

Small and compact, Dell is marketing the Zino HD mini-desktop to be a productive entertainment platform as well. We pry under its colorful lid to see how it measures up.

Compact design ; Interchangeable lids ; Decent HD playback

Unable to display in full-screen

Talking about price, we'd like to highlight this - the S$649 figure is the base price for a single-core AMD Athlon 2850e (1.8GHz) configuration, 2GB memory, a DVD and 320GB drives. Also don't forget that it doesn't come with a monitor by default. If...

Dell Inspiron Zino HD Desktop Review

 

Let's take you back to 2005 when Apple introduced the Mac mini, a full-fledged computer inside of a 6.5 inch square enclosure. It was very impressive then, but now there are many competitors on the market including the Dell Inspiron Zino HD, which...

Compact enclosure perfect for the living room ; Built-in 802.11n wireless networking ; No bloatware installed

No optical audio output

The Dell Inspiron Zino HD starts at $249 through Dell's website.
