I also use it as a DLNA media server for my PS3 and occasionally as a media player using its HDMI output.
Everything works perfectly, fits into any space and uses little electricity so you can keep it on all the time. I'm very happy with it.
Only little thing I could complain about is the "power on" light which is that big orange circle you see on the photo... I'd rather it didn't have it even though it's a neat trick... you cannot tell there is a light in there when it's off.. the piano finish attracts fingerprints but looks great.
The ZBOX is connected by HDMI to my home theater receiver. I have it laying flat, as opposed to using the included stand. There seem to be no issues with heat dissipation and it is very quiet.

I'm using my Harmony One universal remote with the ZBOX, using the IR receiver that came with the following MCE remote: Windows 7 Vista XP Media Center MCE PC Remote Control and Infrared Receiver for Home, Premium and Ultimate Edition. Additionally, I have it connected to my gigabit network. I don't store any media on the ZBOX hard drive itself...everything is in SMB shared folders on my desktop PC in a different room. The ZBOX has no issues whatsoever playing back HD video files. There is no stuttering at all with the video, and the 5.1 sound through HDMI works really well; it's on par with playing a Blu-ray movie on my PS3. Using it with XBMC, the ZBOX hardware is definitely powerful enough for anything you might throw at it (I can't speak for Windows users, as I did not try Windows on the ZBOX).
The only three drawbacks I found with the ZBOX are as follows:
