Quality and User Experience
Playback of every file type we threw at the Zotac ZBox Nano ID65 Plus was virtually flawless. We have been using the machine both in the lab and in a home theater environment for about a week and there hasn't been a single file or type of media the machine couldn’t handle. CPU utilization was low with every file we tested, including H.264 encoded MKVs or MP4s and Flash video, and the quality of the video output to both a desktop monitor or Samsung 3D HDTV was excellent.
As you can see in the images above, CPU utilization was very low when playing back HD content. We should point out that these screen caps were taken with the machine connected to an 802.11n wireless network, either streaming form YouTube or playing back an MP4 stored on a NAS attached to the same network.
