Customer Reviews

Its almost false advertising the way they describe this product.
Dan, AZ USA
All in all, this is an excellent little PC with plenty of power for web browsing, HTPC applications, Pandora, or light gaming.

I have an external TV Tuner (Hauppauge 1192 WinTV HVR-1950 External USB HDTV Tuner/Video Recorder) which works great.

Bought this for my kitchen computer. I connected a 32" LCD 1080 HDTV via HDMI, which I run full 1920x1080 resolution. I have a USB Hauppauge TV tuner connected to cable, and with Windows Media Center on Windows 7 Ultimate, it can watch all local TV channels in full HD. There is no frame loss or jerkyness, but silky smooth video just like a cable box would provide. The onboard Intel GMA 3150 accelerator decodes MPEG-2 1080i (broadcast from cable) with the CPU only at 15-20% load. It can also watch DVD's if I plug in an external DVD player.

Note it is NOT capable of playing blu-ray, as they are encoded with h.264 (mpeg4) and the CPU has no native decoder. I haven't tried it with reduced resolutions (720p) though.

All in all, this is an excellent little PC with plenty of power for web browsing, HTPC applications, Pandora, or light gaming. It's virtually silent, and with 4 GB RAM and 160 GB HDD, I measured it consuming 26W at idle and 35-40W at full CPU load. It does make a bit of heat so give it some room to breathe, especially on the top (air outlet side). You wouldn't want to enclose this in a stereo cabinet without venting.

I saw couple of bad reviews on this product. I don't know what type of Ram they put on it. I just got mine. I installed 4gb of ram. Installed Fedora 15 64 bits and it is working like a charm. Great product.

I'm using this ZBox as a Media Center PC. Running Windows XP Pro 64 Bit.

It's small and comes with a shelf to hold it that you can mount on the back of any monitor with the standard screw holds for mounting. Obviously you cannot mount the monitor on the wall and mound your ZBox to the back at the same time.

My ZBox is mounted to the back of my monitor. That gets it out of the way nicely.

I have an external TV Tuner (Hauppauge 1192 WinTV HVR-1950 External USB HDTV Tuner/Video Recorder) which works great. I upgraded from an external USB Hauppauge 850. The 850 really taxed the CPU and the 1950 doesn't seem to have much impact on CPU Usage. The 1950 records better video quality too (using the same software)

I have the VGA port from the ZBox going to my monitor and the HDMI port is being converted to composite RCA output HDMI to Composite /S-Video Converter 3RCA CRT TV CVBS(Red, White, Yellow) and being feed into my TV.

I'm using XBMC (free software) to play the videos that I record on the HDMI port. I'm happy with the results. I've tried using a remote control with the ZBox to use XBMC and I've found it's just easier to have a wireless keyboard. I'm using the Iogear GKM561R IOGEAR Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel, 2.4GHz Wireless GKM561R (Black). It has a built in trackball and multimedia keys.

I'm not sure about the limit as far as 720p or 1080p since I'm converting it to analog.
