ZOTAC ZBOX ID89 Plus Mini-PC Review

 

When NVIDIA began showing prototype PCs which offered desktop functionality in a palm sized form factor a few years ago it signalled a move in the market with manufacturers making systems that became more and more compact. ASRock, Acer and Sapphire...

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...

Decent Mini-PC, to a fault.

 

This little PC was great for a while, until the entire serial bus stopped working. I use this little system as a source for designing models, and transferring the raw data to my laser, to be cut. The problem now is, since the entire serial bus has...

Small, compact, and clamps directly to a display if one desires. Quiet, yet powerful enough to run adobe illustrator, coreldraw and various cad software with ease. Claims to support 3820x2160 @ 60hz.

No other input options than USB. (The entire bus failed in six months.) Requires an 18/19v brick type power supply, rather than an internal solution. Though that's just a size limitation. There again, small size. May not be suitable for everyone.

Makes a great frontend for MythTV

 

I have been using MythTV for a long time, usually installed on left-over hardware, cobbled together. This is the first "dedicated" hardware frontend I bought, and it exceeded my expectations. I researched ahead of time that most of the included...

Small Size Near silent operation during video playback and navigating MythTV menus Fast bootup and shutdown, especially with SSD All hardware compatible with Linux kernel, including built-in IR receiver Excellent VDPAU support with proprietary Nvidia...

Not bad but no Windows 10 support

 

I read in a couple of other reviews about noise. This is in a bedroom and I don't hear it at all and keep it on 24x7, so perhaps this problem has been resolved.

Mine was not at all loud, in fact it was very quiet, but it was probably the video card fan he was hearing. I presume the fan is on all the time yet I do not hear it. I also like that you can have a m-sata drive and a hard drive. I actually intended to...

They don't officially support windows 10. I was able to get it to work, but the wi-fi doesn't work so I am still using my old USB wi-fi. I think they need more of an answer than we don't support it. People aren't going to run windows 7 forever and I...

Great for a Firewall

 

Purchased two of these to use as firewalls running IPFire. They work great and have no problems.

The only con is I can't get the wireless to work under IPFire but I didn't purchase it for the wireless so it is not a big deal. It will be good once the drivers are updated to support the onboard wireless

Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250

 

If it weren't so noisey, I would have gotten the chance to really play with it. I got the OS down but at that point, I was already filling out the return form. I originally got this to compare to the Gigabyte Brix with the J1900 (under 1/2 the cost of...

Beefy little gaming computer for a decent price ; Takes dual-channel ram ; Can accept 2.5" SATA drive AND an mSATA drive ; Nice looking Power LED lighting circle thing

That fan... It was not just loud, but constantly changed pitch and was VERY annoying. I tweeked the bios and it didn't help. Just very high pitched and adjusted all over the place ; It puts out a fair amount of heat ; It has a large power brick (larger...
