I got my zbox id 36 in a couple days ago and have it all set up. Im dual booting windows 7 ultimate 64 and ubuntu 10.04 64bit. I installed 2 x 2gig crucial memory sticks and a 250 gig hdd. Blurays play very well and im happy with the overall performance. It plays any file i throw at it with xbmc. There are a few things to consider though. The two usb 3.0 ports do not seem to be able to wake it from sleep. Only the usb 2.0 ports do. It does not come with an ir sensor or bluetooth so if your using it as a media pc you would have to buy one. Netflix doesn't play good in hd becouse silverlight is not optimized for weak processors. Flash plays in 1080p great in windows but not in ubuntu. HTML 5 does play well in ubuntu. Im still very happy with it and its easily the most sylish media pc. Bluray makes it a much better choice than a mac mini.

I bought this, 2 gigs of RAM, a 120GB SSD, and a Broadcom BCM70015 decoder.

With the Broadcom decoder installed I was unable to play any 1080P videos streamed off my server without any lag. I didn't have any issues playing 720P movies and lower. I tried multiple installs and configurations of Ubuntu 12.10 and even Windows 7. I even tried 3 different ways to install drivers for the decoder and none of them worked. It wasn't until I removed the Broadcom decoder that I was able to play 1080P videos flawlessly using the nvidia-current video drivers. Do not listen to reviews that recommend the decoder.

Under Ubuntu you can get Bluray playback for lots of movies but they're still working on encryption with some of the newer movies. It comes with a install disc for PowerDVD Bluray 3D playback for Windows which works great.

The only drawback I have is with my IR receiver. It has to be plugged into the only USB 2.0 port which is on the front. USB 3.0 ports are supposed to be backwards compatible, but I believe this is a drawback for IR receivers. It wasn't readable under Ubuntu or Windows even with the USB 3.0 drivers installed. My wireless keyboard nano adapter works in both USB ports.

I've read about people breaking the tabs that the screws go into for the bottom cover. I didn't have any issues. Just line up the holes and don't over tighten the screws.

I still rate this a 5 because of the small design, replacing my Bluray player and full sized ATX tower that I was only using for XBMC, and how quiet it is.

Pro's: Streams Netflix flawlessly. Plays Blu Ray movies that even my standalone Blu Ray player wont' do. I have an older Atom 330 1.6GHz CPU which is noticably slower then this dual core Atom D525. I use this as a Home Theater PC connected to a 32" LED using the HDMI output, picture and sound are flawless.

Con's: The 1 fan in this unit is a little loud, not unbearable when your playing a movie but if sitting idle it can be easily heard. I use this in my bedroom and have to put this to sleep or it can make it hard to sleep.

Highly recommend this PC, I'd buy another in a heart beat.

Setup:
Windows 7 Premium
80GB SSD, 4GB Ram

This system is great for HD 720p video playback. I haven't used the bluray player yet. I am using it as an HTPC with Windows Media Center and Plex. For the most part it gives adequate performance (at least enough to run WMC/Plex). I use an HDHomerun Prime for viewing TV in WMC and it all works fine. Having said that the Atom processor is just way too slow except for basic web browsing (4GB RAM and 250GB HDD). Windows 7 x64 and WMC start-up time takes a few minutes (probably could be sped it up using an SSD). Viewing the WMC OSG for the first time takes about 20-30 secs., but once it's loaded it seems to be okay after that.
PROS: Video Playback at 720p is good. I assume this is due to the GPU.
CONS: When video is played back at 1080p, the video stutters and pixelates when streaming from my local 1Gb network. I have to assume there is just not enough CPU/GPU power to handle it. Plex streaming is much better though as it handles all the transcoding.
The fan is quite loud sometimes. I wish it were fan-less. Windows boot-up is slow.
The flashing blue circle LED light on the top is annoying, but it can be disabled via the BIOS setup. If this system had a faster low-powered processor it would be great.

Brand new bare bone unit would not post, show any video or made any attempt to boot to the bios. Online suggestions pointed to clearing the cmos, which did not work. Had to send the unit back to seller and pay out of pocket shipping of $18, which was also disappointing.
