Product on Review: ZOTAC ZBOX nano XS AD11 Plus
Manufacturer & Sponsor: ZOTAC
Street Price: £299

ZOTAC ZBOX's are tailor-made to provide consumers with small form-factor, low-noise and low power requirement systems. ZBOX's are available in both barebones - without memory and storage drive - and full systems (denoted as Plus variants) with either AMD, Intel or VIA chipsets for a range of applications. Whilst a common use has been as Home Theatre PCs dedicated to media playback, the increasing capabilities of small form factor systems has seen them propelled to the status of fully fledged general use PCs.

Reviewed today is the brand new ZBOX nano XS AD11 Plus, an evolution of the AD10 sporting a dual-core AMD E-450 APU running at 1.65GHz with HD6320 Graphics and supporting memory speeds of up-to DDR3-1333. The AD11 Plus is also the first of the ZOTAC nano series to include a 64GB SSD as standard, eliminating both HDD access speeds as a system bottleneck and mechanical HDD noise. Further augmenting the Plus package are 2GB DDR3-1333 RAM, WiFi and Infra Red Remote Control... have ZOTAC thought of everything?

ZOTAC are perhaps best known as an official NVIDIA partner for their GEFORCE range of graphics cards, having recently released the first of the Kepler-based GTX 680 cards now on the market. It's incorrect however to assume that is all they create; ZOTAC are also a market leaders in both mini-ITX motherboards and mini-PCs, the latter of which is catered to by their ZBOX range.
