We're testing four nettops: Arctic Cooling’s MC001-BD, ASRock’s CoreHT 252B, Giada’s i50, and Zotac’s Zbox AD03BR-PLUS. All of these tiny, quiet systems take a very different approach to compact computing, and we fill you in on what makes them...

Promising the GPU prowess of ION with Atom-like power consumption, AMD’s Fusion E-series (Brazos) Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) finally enables truly minuscule small form factor (SFF) home theater PCs (HTPCs). Besides full hardware...

As long as you don't expect incredible performance in most traditional computing applications (and you're willing to install your own OS), the Zbox AD03BR-PLUS-U fits the bill as an unobstrusive, feature-rich home theater PC....

Brazos doesn’t revolutionise the nettop, but this is undoubtedly a stylish and well-rounded little system...

We think the ZOTAC ZBOX is a very good attempt at building a low-power HTPC solution that you can buy off the shelf. Anyone assembling an HTPC will tell you that finding a board, a compatible chassis and getting them for as cheap as you'd like...

All things considered, in light of some other competing low-power platforms, the Zotac ZBox Blu-Ray AD03 Plus and Gigabyte E350N-USB3 performed very well. In terms of CPU and overall system performance, the AMD E-350 APU-based Zotac and Gigabyte...

Home-theater PCs don't get much smaller than this AMD Fusion-based ZBox, though its diminutive size means paying a premium price and making more than a few sacrifices....

We looked at the Intel Atom/NVIDIA ION based Zbox Blu-Ray a couple of months back and really liked its form factor and performance as an HTPC. Today, we look at Zotac’s latest model- the Zbox Blu-ray AD03 which looks identical to the Atom based...

Wer sich gerade überlegt, sein Wohnzimmer mit einem HTPC auszustatten, ist mit der Zotak ZBox AD03 gut beraten. Der Preis für dieses beinahe unsichtbare Gerät mit seinen zahlreichen Anschlussmöglichkeiten liegt bei gerechtfertigten...

Htpc är ett koncept som dödförklarats gång på gång av förståsigpåare som menar att mediaspelare och smarta tv-apparater är framtiden, men tillverkarna fortsätter att spotta ur sig nya modeller och...

Aujourd'hui, on passe en revue un petit PC signé Zotac. Le ZBOX Blu-Ray AD03 Plus, puisque c'est son nom, tourne sur une plateforme AMD Fusion, avec en prime un lecteur bleu et tout ce qu'il faut pour démarrer, à savoir un...

International Review By SweClockers on

AMD:s plattform Brazos, även känd som den första riktiga Fusion, fick goda omdömen i SweClockers recension. Nykomlingen passar extra bra som grund för HTPC-datorer och marknaden översköljs nu med moderkort i det...
