ZOTAC ZBOXHD-ID34BR-U Blu-Ray HTPC - Bjorn3D.com

 

With the market saturated with already fine-tuned NVIDIA 460's, buyers need a good reason to upgrade to the entry level 500 series. The MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II / OC provides these reasons and is more than just a powerful name. One of the best...

The ZOTAC ZBOXHD-ID34BR-U impressed us in many ways, including looks, overall size, features, and overall innovation. While its performance lacks, even with the fastest Intel ATOM processor, Blu-Ray video playback is fantastic, and online streaming...

Zotac ZBox Blu-Ray Mini PC (HD-ID34BR) Review

 

In this review, we'll be taking a look at the Zotac Zbox Blu-Ray HD (Model: HD-ID34BR). It's a mini-PC that features Intel's new ATOM D525 dual core processor running at 1.8Ghz, supporting hyper-threading technology and 800FSB. It uses Nvidia's ION...

Fun while it lasted...

 

I checked the power brick for voltage and it seemed fine. Once day after a shutdown it wouldn't turn back on.. I guess $300 isn't what it used to be.

Perfect for my HTPC needs.

Died after 2 years.

Does as advertised and a bit more

 

It's a computer in a living room. For the price, over the years, and taking in account that it has a bluray player, it's been quite the satisfying little thing.

Small form factor ; Low power usage ; Discreet but soldered-on GPU; some tasks can be GPU-accelerated

CPU is really not powerful; don't compile a Linux kernel on this

OK at best but a product should last more than 6 months

 

running Win8

Inexpensive

Struggles with more than few apps running, video stutters, and now - 6 months in died.

Great Show

 

Want a HTPC that you can put out of the way...this is it. Want one that you can display with pride...this is it. Zotac did a great job designing this one. Wish they would put out a newer model that is capable of handling 8-16 GB of memory...it would...

Small form factor allows for out of the way positioning. Does everything that large PC would do. Windows & installed on the one that I own with ease. Did another for a friend and installed Windows 8...he loves it. I have owned mine for over a year and...

None that I can mention. If you are looking for high speed performance you should look to a larger computer. This computer fits the need of getting a HTPC at an economic price. Although I wish they would put them on sale every now and then. I know I...

Zotac ZboxHd-ID34BR

 

I haven't RMA this yet because I really like the machine except for the Bluray player. DVD's work. If I can get a solution, then I will keep it. I'm running this with Windows 7.

cheap & is mostly everything I want in a HTPC except below. If I can get Blu ray to work, this would be perfect.

Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 software does not play BLU Ray. It advises that I need to "update" the software for it to work but when I click "yes" for the update, it still doesn't work. Cyberlink also no longer supports PowerDVD 8. I have sent a message to...
