The ZBOX-AD02-PLUS sets out to do one thing: provide 1080p video playback with minimal power draw and as little heat and noise output as possible. In that regard, it succeeds admirably. As a more general purpose system it is not without its...

I have to say I was quite surprised with this little box of tricks, not only does the Zotac ZBOX AD02 Plus tick all the net box requirements, It also ticks HTPC requirements as well. I did not in no way expect the numbers I saw I was really expecting...

Zotac has really put together a good all-in-one system with the ZBOX HD-AD02 plus. All you really need to purchase after getting the system is the operating system and possibly a USB CD-ROM drive. The unit is nice and compact and can fit pretty much...

Dagegen macht man beim der ZBOX AD02 Plus auf AMDs brandneuer Brazos Plattform vieles besser und bietet die gleichen Features, da außenherum das gleiche Gehäuse steckt. Die Leistung ist je nach Anwendungsgebiet mal vor mal hinter dem ungleichen Bruder...

Avec une puissance largement suffisante pour les tâches multimédias auxquelles il se destine, une connectique bien pensée, ce Zbox AD02 s'en sort plutôt bien dans sa catégorie face aux machines à base de processeur Intel Atom. En revanche, le bruit...
