Zotac’s Zbox HD-ID34BR-U nettop is a mix of good and bad in a box that resembles a laptop that cannot be opened. The bad, at least in The Tech Reports experience was that the BluRay player had a habit of disappearing from Windows, a rather nasty fault for a box that is intended to play HD video. On the good side were the peripherals, there are a pair of USB3 ports for your usage and the blend of the Atom D525 1.8GHz and the new nVIDIA Ion GPU managed perfect video playback of 1080p sources.
“This sleek, small-form-factor machine serves up Blu-ray playback, USB 3.0, Nvidia discrete graphics, and a dual-core Atom. Is it the ultimate home-theater nettop?”
