This PC has a lot going for it, the size is wonderful, it seems solidly built and installing memory and a hard drive was a breeze. The problem I have is that I bought this for HTPC use and it really does not have enough power for this purpose. It is no where nearly as powerful as some of the online reviews would lead you to believe. Yes it can handle some 1080p video streams as indicated but only barely and using a lot more CPU than the reviews indicate (and yes I do have all the latest drivers). Flash Videos at 1080p consume ~80% CPU but do play smoothly - H264 videos (MP4s) play extremely well at around 20% CPU usage. Amazon Prime videos stream without issue at 720p, although the CPU usage is pushing 90%. The real issue I have is with Netflix - the box can only manage SD. With HD video from Netflix one core of the CPU is solidly pegged and the picture only updates maybe once a second at best - completely unwatchable. This is probably the fault of Silverlight, the Microsoft technology that Netflix uses for PC streaming because of its DRM capabilities. The net result is if you want to stream Netflix look somewhere else.

Pros:
-The Small Form Factor fits just about anywhere.
-Comes with everything that's important: Graphics, wireless, usb3.0, card reader, etc.
-Can't beat the "cool factor" when friends see it.
-Remote control

Cons:
-LOUD fan
-Some components (fan for example) are not user, or even Factory replaceable!
-Fickle usb ports & remote control

I've had my AD10 almost 4 months now. At first, it seemed the perfect solution to my problem, namely that I needed a media pc for my bedroom. This seemed to have all the answers. It has decent built-in graphics that plays nice with Netflix, movies off my HDD, movies off USB drives or SD cards. It has a remote control that lets you remotely turn off or on the PC. It has a wifi card so that you don't have to run Cat5 cable to pick up your internet connection. It even has two USB 3.0 ports around the back.

It does have its faults though. The first issue was solvable: the green (or orange) ring that lights up to tell you machine is on can be distracting in a dark room. There is however a BIOS setting that will let you turn the ring light off, so that turned out to be a non-issue. A more perplexing problem is the cooling fan. This CPU on this machine can get HOT if you are putting the graphics through their paces. The fan itself is quite loud in a bedroom setting. There is a setting to make the fan slower (thus quieter), but in my case it caused the CPU temperature to rise to dangerous levels. I had to trade cooling for noise pollution. Here is the problem though: you can't change the built in fan. It is some proprietary part that you can't get from anyone but Zotac, and it's expensive. Don't think about trying to replace it yourself though, that voids the warranty on the box!

I bought this to use as an XBMC server and it works beautifully. I installed XBMCbuntu on it and you can get it up and working pretty quickly, although there are some tweaks you may need to do to get full sound (5.1 etc) working and there are some buttons on the remote that don't work out of the box. This is not an issue with the ZBOX though, it's an issue with the drivers that come with ubuntu for generic multimedia server remotes. There are tutorials online to get you through the driver update process but you will need to be comfortable running command-line commands in linux.

Installing the RAM and Hard Drive was painless.I stream 1080P, 5.1 surround movies over my wireless network to this box and output to my 60" TV with 5.1 surround setup. It works very well. I've been using it daily for just under a week and only once did it pause to buffer the video. It buffered for maybe 5 seconds and then continued. While slightly annoying, the pause and resume while buffering worked smoothly and there were no issues or stuttering video. I can even make full use of the fast forward, rewind, chapter skip, and manual track control without issue.

My only complaint, which is minor, is that the fan in the ZBOX is rather loud and obvious when there is no sound playing. When something is playing however I never notice it. If you watch with the volume very low you may notice it.

While I would say this is probably only just barely above the requirements necessary for 1080P with surround playback, it does it smoothly and without issue, even when streaming over wifi. A solid multimedia box.

EDIT: I have NOT tried using Netflix with this machine. I have heard that there are issues with it due to its use of Silverlight not taking advantage of the integrated onboard video.

I bought this as a system for basic web surfing and other minor tasks, freeing up my larger desktop's resources as a torrentbox. I installed a 64GB SSD, 4GB of RAM, and 64-bit Linux Mint xfce 14. I find it to be EASILY POWERFUL enough to handle web surfing while listening to music and other typical tasks most of us do 99% of the time.

PLUSES
------
-VERY powerful UEFI BIOS, allows all sorts of tweaking you wouldn't expect with a $220 barebones PC, including overclocking CPU and RAM.
-very energy efficient.
-more than enough peripheral types and interfaces.

MINUSES
-------
-I wish the motherboard supported more than 4GB of RAM, particularly with a SSD, and sending all logs and caches to a ramdisk to reduce wear.
-CPUs run pretty hot. I show 65-70 deg Celsius with only a sustained 30% load. That's with a 65 degF room temp and plenty of space all around the box. I'd be leery of pushing this system to its limits unless the fan really kicks in big time to compensate.
-The fan is pretty audible, which was disappointing, although it certainly doesn't compare to my gaming system

Overall, build quality and documentation are excellent. Linux support is excellent, with no driver issues at all. USB speeds are fine under Linux. I can't comment on the remote, as that isn't something I use.
