The ZOTAC ZBOX nano XS AD11 Plus retails for Rs.25,400, which we feel is a very good price considering the whole package and just how tiny it is. You could build a mini-ITX based HTPC yourself but that will turn out to be more expensive and you’ll...

Zotac Zbox Nano XS AD11 Plus Review

Great box for home theater applications


My old HTPC lacked an HDMI-out port, and my new receiver wouldn't combine DVI and TOSlink inputs, so I needed a new HTPC. This Zotac unit filled the bill, and provides great video and audio through its HDMI port. I didn't need the performance of an...
