Zbox Pico Review PI320 – Conclusion

Back at CES a few years ago we first saw NVIDIA demo a compact system which was palm sized and capable of running a full desktop OS. That reference design was very cool and really showed what was possible with the latest generation of components. Since then we have seen systems getting closer and closer to this design, including the Zotac Zbox Nano but this new Pico system is the first we have seen to really achieve a quality, consumer ready, palm sized, retail product. That starts with a high quality chassis which is stylish and durable. That said there are a couple of little quirks, for example we would have left more space around the USB ports to accommodate larger USB drives, or maybe added a few rubber sections on the base for stability on a flat surface… oh, and a kensington lock slot would be handy. Otherwise the design is good, a nice easy to press power button, easy access to the microSD card slot and a touch of extra style from the glowing logo on top.

In terms of performance, we could always ask for more on a system like this. Just one USB 3.0 port would really be helpful. A GB LAN port too… or 5GHz capable Wi-FI but otherwise the performance is decent. The SSD is somewhat limited in write speed but for a productivity system such as this which is designed to be as small as possible there has to be some trade off. The only time we noticed any serious lag during normal desktop use was loading web pages which were content heavy, one loaded though the system returned to being responsive and for office use, or streaming 1080p video we noted no issues. Add to that the fact the system is silent, there is no cooling fan, and that it runs on less than 20w at all times, for example 12w when streaming 1080p and things get pretty impressive.

So that brings us to value where the Zbox Pico PI320 retails for £150 (or less than $200) including its Windows 8.1 OS (32bit, n edition). That is pretty great in our opinion for anyone who needs a productivity machine with a compact size.

    What type of DC power input jack is on it? Type M? I need to know so that I can pair it with a battery. Thanks!
