Zotac ZBOX ID41


It runs MythBuntu out of the box! It's quiet. It's small.

It's a bit wobbly when you press the power button when it's in the stand .

Zotac ZBOX ID41


It's small, energy efficient and cheap. Great graphics capabilities, dual screens (one dvi one hdmi) work great. Perfect for a web browsing PC or home server / torrent box.

Noisy fan, very difficult to get windows 7 on it, wouldn't make a good htpc (which should be fanless IMO)

Small. Quiet one I tuned fan settings in Bios. Quick and easy to set up. Handles video well.

Haven't found wol to work yet. Cpu clearly not the fastest but that's fine for media and htpc.

Zotac ZBOX ID41


Easy to assemble, quiet operation, plays music and DVD video with ease, has about a zillion ports.

USB 3 ports don't work reliably with XBMCbuntu.

Zotac ZBOX ID41


Tidy box, nice style. Good mounting and install options. Loads of connectors in all the right places.

It's not fast - meaning it won't play 1080p mkv files with DTS - even with GPU acceleration enabled and working Fan is noisy and gets really hot anyway. Not the right choice for a HTPC (client) for me.

Caveat emptor


While it worked, my ZBOX ran quietly and cooly. The small form factor allowed me to place it on a shelf with adequate ventilation on either side ; Adding a 2.5" SATA drive and two 2 GB SODIMMs was easy enough; no tools required. I briefly experimented...

Lackluster customer support after the ZBOX failed and would not even post while powering up (the unit simply powers down) ; Submitted a ticket to Zotac support in February and after some correspondence, I'm still awaiting what should be some fairly...
