This is an remarkable little box, perfect for basic computing (pleasantly surprising, given its cost). Windows 8. 1 comes preinstalled, so there is only a simple setup procedure to walk through, acknowledging the license agreement, creating a user account (or tying in to your Microsoft account), etc. An initial Windows Update pass takes about an hour to finish, after that it is prepared. There is no bloatware installed that I have run across, just the basic Windows stuff, as well as Microsoft Defender. Clearly Microsoft Office isn’t included. It is not obvious from the description, however the USB 3. 0 ports are all on the back of the unit; both the front-facing and the up-facing (?) ports are USB 2. 0. HDMI out works good for video, although I can not vouch for the HDMI audio. The ZBOX comes with a reinstallation DVD (a nice feature) and a disc containing Windows 7 and Windows 8 drivers. I have not tried installing Windows 7 (still). The only issue I have seen so far is the video driver failed (and recovered) once; that may have been caused by Windows Update installing a newer driver. The box is nearly silent: if I put my ear up to it (mounted vertically, as suggested) I can make out some fan sound, however take just a step back and it is gone. The included 64GB SSD (maybe about two-thirds free after installation) is,, silent (and fast). I am undecided on installing more than the included 2GB RAM. I will install Office and see how well it performs with basic productivity tasks before I upgrade. Zotac gives on their web site a list of accepted memory sticks (look for Tested memory list under Miscellaneous downloads), at least one of the 4GB ones fulfilled by Amazon (Samsung M471B5273CH0-CH9) for $46.



I bought this to replace my wife’s rather ancient laptop that was giving up the ghost (we were using it with an external monitor and keyboard). She uses it for surfing the web, watching video (streaming from the web or home video stored on the pc), light editing of photos (usually cropping) and basic word processing/spreadsheets (I loaded an older variant of Office that I own). For this kind of use, this is a great pc. Setup was fast and painless and we have had no problems so far, though it is only been a couple of weeks. Pros- Virtually silent. My wife has still to hear the fan come on. Or if it has, she can not hear it. – fast. It boots up in about 8 seconds. Programs load in just some seconds. The SSD helps make things snappy. – lots of USB3 ports (though I’d have liked to have one in the front, rather than all 4 being in the back. ) The front USB port is USB2- Tiny. Fits in a little cubby in her desk organizer. – Complete pc. I was looking at some number of bare bones kits, however this is prepared to go out of the box. No have to purchase (and install) memory, hard drive or OS. Cons/things to be aware of. – Not powerful. Fast doesn’t essentially mean powerful. I do not think you’d like this if you wanted to play games on it or do heavy photo/video editing. – Only 64 GB of storage on the SSD. You may be able to generally add an external drive or inexpensive flash drive to increase storage if you have to. – No WIFI. If you need WIFI, make sure to purchase a USB WIFI adapter. I did not deduct anything from my ranking over the listed cons because they do not affect us. In general, this is a perfect pc for what we use it for.



I am a big fan of this PC. Setup was simple, I chose to do a new Windows8 install ( easy to do from settings menu). I then added a 750GB drive in the extra SATA slot (which is a big bonus). Now I have got my O/S running on the 64GB SSD (50 free space), and all of my music, pictures, papers on the 750GB drive. Computer is whisper calm, I do not think I have heard the fan kick on still to be honest. I’m using just the installed 2GB of RAM, and it looks to run good with it. Now I have 6 Chrome tabs open also as iTunes. It is nice knowing that there are two DIMM slots, so I can generally bump the RAM up if needed. I got this at $199, however I have seen it go lower, it should be a no brainer if you are wanting a compact PC. 4x USB 3. 0 ports, HDMI out, SPDIF out, nice onboard audio DAC, lots of ports/connections. I think my favorite thing is boot up time, I think I have clocked it at around 10 seconds, which is ridiculous. This thing blows away any past PC I have had.
