Zotac Zbox Nano AD10 Plus HTPC


Mini PCs are a relatively new phenomenon and went commercial in 2005 with the Apple Mac mini. Since then, a handful of manufacturers have launched their own variants of mini PCs that are cost friendly

The Zotac Zbox Nano AD10 Plus sells at a market operating price of Rs. 17,999. This makes it a really good choice for an all-in-one computer where one can browse the Internet, use simple Microsoft Office tools like Word, Powerpoint, Excel, etc. But,...

Zotac ZBOX Nano AD10 Plus U Mini SFF PC Review

Zotac Zbox Nano AD10 Plus Review


An HTPC enthusiast's dream come true.

Beautiful form factor; Many options to customize; WiFi & LAN connections; Two USB 3.0 ports; SATA III 6Gbps HDD port

No OS included

The real pain during installation was that the USB 3.0 ports wouldn’t work as there were no drivers that could have been installed, so I had to use one USB 2.0 port for installing Win 7 (on a USB stick) and switch between the keyboard and mouse as and...

AD10 : Packed with Power


I was a bit skeptical about this purchase but for the price, I decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a try. My AD10 came bundled with a *free* 64GB SSD drive, a nice add-in from NewEgg (thank you), and with the price as low as it was, I was...

Compact size ; Great design - ports are easily accessible ; Highly flexible configuration for customization ; Perfect Ubuntu XBMC HTPC

Nice little machine


Very compact machine, has all the needed peripherals to make this a very viable option for a media center. Will run most all types of media, has trouble with BR resolution from file form. 13 GB movie file was the only one that has stuttered on this...

Will hang on first boot on occasion. Will go through the boot up sound and hangs on the zbox menu. Have to hold down the power button to reboot and will boot normally. This only happens on occasion, but is annoying none the less. Haven't flashed the...

Install AMD Media Codec Package


Folks with playback issues should verify installation of the AMD Media Codec Package (sometimes called 'Avivo'), and check that AMD *UVD* (Universal Video Decoder) is enabled in your media players ; This should address your playback issues except with...

Neat but falls short


I bought a popular dedicated streaming device instead for half the price and it plays Netflix HD flawlessly. The interface and playback is super sharp. My TV recognizes the video output as 1920x1080 60Hz and looks crystal clear. None of the 1080i...

Looks cool. Very small. Lots of features

Netflix playback was terrible (highly pixelated, stuttering). YouTube 1080p would stutter as well. It would not handle a 1080p rip in XBMC either ; I could not get it to look good on my 46" LCD TV. It would show up as 1080i and desktop was really...

Interferes with audio equipment


Looks good on paper

This device caused massive RF interference to some audio equipment I had located in an adjacent cabinet. All my equipment is properly grounded if it is grounded, and otherwise has solid power connections. For some reason this device induced high...
