ZOTAC ZBOX ID89 Plus Mini-PC Review

 

The ZOTAC ZBOX ID89 Plus contains the usual selection of 2.5in hard drive, wireless-n wi-fi and the like but manages to include support for dual channel memory and arrives kitted out with a Core i5 CPU. All in a chassis not much bigger than most...

The most impressive ultra-compact system we have tested to date.

Zotac Zbox review

 

Testing new and popular stuff is always a bit more fun - especially when you're dealing with market trends that happen only once every now and then. The same thing happened with laptops - at one point, they overtook desktops on the overall "interest...

If you take a look at scores, it's clear - this represents quite a step forward when compared to first generation of Ion platform, in every single test. Video performance is better as well, and consumes even less HW power then before (down 30%). Quite...

AWESOME

 

16 GB RAM 2x8G|HYPERX HX316LS9IBK2/16 R 256 GB mSATA M6M PX-256M6M 1TB WD backup disk WD10JPVX The I/O subsystem is faster than any PC I have seen. Talking about compressing large files, backing up, etc. Runs cool with 4 VMs up and not much activity....

tiny ; desktop i7 ; quiet when fan set to 30 ; not cheap but not expensive either ; beautiful industrial design - gloss black/flat black ; easiest PC to work on ever ; about all the ports you would need, 4 USB3 (or more if you get a USB hub)

an odd glitch: would not boot without a USB DVD drive. It does not give the BIOS beep, force it off then it will boot. BIOS is updated. So I leave the DVD connected

Addendum

 

I replaced the Intel AC 3160 with an Intel AC 7260 W/BT WIFI adapter and effectively doubled my internet download speeds...went from above 50 Mbps to over 100 Mbps over my WIFI connection.

Works like a champ

 

Configured the unit with 16GB RAM (HyperX Impact Black Series 16GB (2 x 8G)), a hand-me-down Samsung 840 EVO 1TB SSD, Windows 8.1, and Cyberlink's PowerDVD. This unit has succeeded (and then some) in replacing my trusty old WD Media Player box although...

Very fast Windows 8.1 machine in a very compact an maneuverable size. WEI of 8.2 for CPU/MEM/SSD and 6.8 for Iris Graphics. [WIFI]: Located in kitchen far away from house WIFI router, yet still getting 5 bars on the WIFI connection and great WIFI...

This unit cannot be configured without a DP enabled monitor. The DVI (HDMI Connection) doesn't work right out of the box not does it work without Windows running and with the Windows drivers loaded. I ended up having to configure the unit in BIOS...

weak WIFI

 

Tight packaging and 3 video connectors on back mean not much room for other ports on back which can make for a bit of a mess on a desktop. You really need to use the USB on the top/side for a wireless keyboard/mouse and buy a USB3 hub to round out the...

A lot of power in a small package. Quiet ; Conservative on ports, no rear audio for speakers except SPIDF

WIFI is weak. about 1/2 to 3/4 the distance of laptops in same environment

Best Media Center Yet

 

I have spent thousands of dollars with Newegg building media centers for my home but this box is as good as the best I have built for a fraction of the cost. I have it hooked up to a Sharp 4K 70" THX TV. Looks awesome. Has the ability to play in 4K but...

Powerful, fast, great graphics and cheap for what you get

Best HTPC

 

I haven't tried the onboard IR receiver yet. I'm using an 80 GB msata hd as the OS drive and a 250 GB SSD as the game drive. I have a NAS for media.

FAST ; Small ; Good air flow ; Silent ; Low power consumption and fast wake from sleep ; Iris Pro 5200 good enough to run Dark Souls ; Integrated blue tooth and wireless combo card ; 2.5" Sata AND mSata

HDMI dongle instead of port ; No Optical drive ; Intel graphics drivers are still kind of wonky

Powerful little box

 

Core i7 4770R, best intel graphics (GT3+) 4 cores that mostly run above 3.2Ghz. x2 DisplayPort connectors

Fan is noisy until you update the bios, where the have picked better thermal speed settings. Cooling overall could have been better designed ; 1 egg for No eSATA, which limits your storage
