With win7 it works right out of the box, although you'll need to get the latest NVIDIA drivers (windows update has these as optional updates), and it required a Bios update to quiet the fan, but once that was done it was pretty much inaudible, especially with the TV on.
As an indication of how it handles the load, Media Center uses about 40% CPU (distributed across the 4 cores) even when recording 2 HDTV channels using separate USB DVB-T receivers and playing back a previously recorded show (all at 1080i).
There was even enough grunt in the ION graphics (which are supposed to be equivalent to a GeForce 218) to get it play Left 4 Dead, UT3, Portal etc. all at near HD resolutions, with reasonable frame rates, although the details and reflections were turned down.
Getting it to work with MythTV (back end / front end all in one) was a little more challenging, but that's down to Linux not the PC. In the end, it worked for that as well.
It wakes as expected from signals on the Microsoft USB remote control, but not the RF keyboard or mouse, and the BIOS doesn't support wake on lan - for me not a show stopper.
The only other minor issue I have found is that any drives attached to the eSata port get seen as non-removable, only gets detected if the device is present at boot, and Windows crashes if it's unplugged.
Does run a little warm, especially when you hit it hard with games, but it doesn't seem excessive.
On the whole, I'm very happy with it!
1) HDMI and S/PDIF works great
2) Lots of USB port, so you will never run out of it!
3) eSATA port provides better expansion
4) Has on board GigE, so if you want to use this for HTPC along w/ shared storage, it will work great
5) Doesn't come with any HDD, RAM, OS so you can pick and choose :)
1) Out of the box fan was very noisy. Luckily BIOS upgrade fixed the problem.
2) Spec says it has built-in 802.11n :) Beware that if your AP is more than 20 feet away, you are out of luck! Signal reception is very poor. So, read reviews on this before you buy, if WiFi is a must for you.
3) I've strange issue with USB power. When I connect the power cable to zbox attached USB devices gets power even if I don't power on the zbox itself! My HDD continues to spin for ever. I opened support ticket but no help/response from Zotac. If I turn on the zbox for few seconds and turn off, USB devices stops getting power. Some bug in h/w I guess. Yes, I know about "Wake on USB" and I've already tried changing that setting as well.
4) It has RED LED behind power on/off button. If u put zbox in standby mode, it keeps on blinking along with the Blue Ring! Very distracting to keep in living room. If you disable Blue Ring logo from BIOS, then power on/off button is always RED even when system is up and running :)
It's getting quite hot even after 1-2 hours of use, so if you are thinking for a long use, you may need to use ice pack.
Adding HDD, RAM and OS will cost you same as Aspire Revo. Revo comes w/ wireless keyboard and mouse with the similar CPU and GPU power.Read more ›
There is one thing that needs to be kept in mind when ordering this system; don't assume that the hardware you have laying around from desktop PC upgrades will work with this system. Essentially, it requires memory and a hard drive that are designed for laptop systems. Don't let that scare you away, though. These components are easily found on Amazon.
Others have commented on a few flaws in this particular system. First, the system fan is quite loud on some systems. However, upgrading the BIOS to the most recent version (as of 12/2010) fixed mine. Second, it has been pointed out that the on-board wifi is awful. It is nearly unusable with the extended buffering that occurs when playing back network video. If possible, use a wired connection. Another solution is to replace the factory wifi card with a better card (Intel, etc). The card is located on the back side of the motherboard and only accessible by totally removing the motherboard from the case. This solution isn't for everyone; in doing it you must remove a "warranty invalid if removed" sticker. Directions for this upgrade can be found with a simple Google search.
