Great little computer!


I bought two of these to replace a pair of aging Pentium 4 towers that were gulping up $500 worth of electricity per year between them. These ZBOXes are very power miserly (about 20W flat out, 5W when in standby mode), extremely quiet, and are about...

Just a few more USB ports would have been nice

Great Little Box!


I built this with 8GB of memory and a 256GB SSD running OpenSuse 13.2 to run and collect data for my Davis weather station. I had previously built another "Brand-X" (El Cheep-O from an ePay seller) machine for this function, but the cooling fan in it...

Relatively inexpensive, QUIET, cool running, seems rock-solid

None so far

It works


I bought this to use for a Kodi/XBMC media center. I just added the RAM, which was done easily and without tools, and installed OpenELEC. It was uneventful and it has been working ever since. I never power it off. I can't hear the fan.

Small ; Quiet ; Easy to setup

I haven't found any so far

Nice little machine! Works perfectly for media and browsing.


I am overwhelmingly pleased with this little computer. Speedy booting, instant feedback, no noise, and incredibly simple to handle and upgrade. I purchased the unit to replace my 4-year-old MSI Global Wind Box DE500, which was large, overheating, and...

Small size, similar typical hardcover book ; CPU heat fan is nearly silent ; Designed with heat exhaust vent pointed upward when mounted in bracket. Pulls heat from side ; Took under 3 minutes to install hard drive and memory, and start Windows 8.1...

No VESA bracket to attach to back of flat screen TV ; 3.5 mm audio connectors are on the front of the unit ; HDMI is bleached and grainy on SyncMaster P2770HD flat screen monitor. Switched back to DVI connection and 3.5mm audio
