Zotac ZBOX Blu-ray HD-ID34

8.7 Overall Score
Build: 10/10
Price: 8/10
Performance: 7/10

Build quality was great | Playback was flawless | System works well

Lesser performance | Only 2 USB ports for loading Windows

So we’ve finished the lever of testing that we wanted to accomplish. While these machines are not suppose to be power houses. It was a nice change of pace to see what these things could do. When it comes down to it, your probably not going to be doing too much on these.

We’ve tested blu-ray playback on the system, and it was pretty flawless. One thing we did find hiccups on was streaming 1080p over 1000mbit Ethernet. One thing that was awfully odd we thought was the transfer rate over the network was pretty slow. 2Mbyte/sec. We have a feeling that there maybe a bug in the Ethernet controller drivers or something.

Other than that the system was fairly cheap coming in at 519.99 at Newegg

This machine also came with free Full version of PowerDVD software to play blu-ray movies which is what we used for our playback tests.

With that being said. It was a good unit despite being weaker in most of the tests we tested with. It had a better chassis than the Zotac AMD ZBOX we tested, however, you can get the AMD solution with the same chassis that this one had.
