Zotac ZBOX Blu-Ray HD-ID34 Review


Zotac has become quite popular in recent times for their entry level products in the mini-ITX motherboard, Atom / ION nettop and nVidia GPU space. Their mini-PC lineup started with the Zotac MAG series last year, and this year's refresh comes in the...

Zotac Zbox Blu-Ray HD-ID34 HTPC Review


A challenger to Mac Mini in the HTPC market arrives.

USB 3.0, Blu-Ray drive, Good-looking, Impressive Performance

No iR port, No Bluetooth, PSU not integrated

Although the Atom CPU has a much lower performance than the Core 2 Duo found on the Mac Mini, the most taxing thing I’ve ever done on an HTPC is play a full 1080p Blu-Ray movie or an MKV file with extremely high bitrates. For that purpose, the Zotac...

Zotac's Zbox HD-ID34BR-U nettop


The home-theater PC has certainly evolved in recent years. There was a time when the HTPC designation simply signified any system that was set up in the living room and hooked up to your television, so you could play back downloaded episodes of The...

Priced at $499, the Zbox HD-ID34 isn't quite in impulse buy territory. Neither is the completely barebones variant, the HD-ID33, which will hit Newegg at $399 next week. Cash-strapped users might have an easier time forking the dough for simpler...

Zotac ZBox Blu-ray HD-ID34 Nettop / HTPC Review


Nettops are not nearly as popular as their mobile contemporaries, i.e. netbooks, arguably due to the lack of any significant horsepower within the tiny machines. Up until now, most nettops have been good for little more than basic Office duties, Web...

Great Nettop Performance ; Stylish Design ; Two USB 3.0 Port ; Avaialble Mini-PCIe Slot ; Can Handle Some Gaming ; Blu-ray Drive Included

No Bluetooth ; Gets Quite Warm With Use ; Bring Your Own OS/Keyboard ; No Bundled Controller

We were duly impressed with the Zotac HD-ID11 when we reviewed it a few months back, and to put it simply, the new HD-ID34 is and even stronger product. We knew from our time with the Eee PC 1215N that Intel's Atom D525 was a step up from previous Atom...

Zotac Zbox HD-ID34


Thoughtful design is about more than just style, though, good as that is; it's also evident in the selection of ports on offer. There's a memory card reader on the front for SD, MS, MMC and xD Picture formats, and both a USB 2 and USB 3 port for easy...

Superb design, decent media performance and an attractive price make this a focused living room option

Great Mythtv Frontend


I bought this box to be a Mythtv Frontend in my livingroom. Other than the DVD being a little loud when using it, the box is great. I am having a little trouble with the USB, but I'm pretty sure that is a Mythbuntu issue. So if you are looking to...
