ZOTAC ZBOX Sphere OI520 series – Review

In order to expand its ZBOX line, ZOTAC International has recently revealed its new series called ZBOX Sphere OI520. Leaving the traditional square form factor behind, ZOTAC has moved on to create this exclusive orb-shaped mini-PC.

Appearance

This stylish spherical device displays a unique design concept. Raised on a shelf-like platform, it bulges out on the desktop. This may be quite appealing for many people who are looking for uniqueness and innovation in their products. On the other hand, some people may also find it awkward-looking. The device displays three USB 2.0 and four USB 3.0 ports. While USB 2.0 ports are located on the back and side, USB 3.0 ports are all conveniently located on the back. It further includes a 4-in-1 memory card reader, mSATA port, SATA 3 port, HDMI output and DisplayPort output. Overall, the appearance seems to be satisfactory.

Performance

Powered by the fourth Generation Intel Core i5 processor (1.6 GHz, 2.6 GHz), the ZBOX Sphere OI520 series offers wonderful computing experience at an individualized level. Intel HD Graphics 4400 makes this device perfect for high-definition content. This mini-PC is an excellent device for those who like to multitask, as it is highly responsive. It is also easily expandable to include a 2.5-inch SATA 6.0 GB/s hard drive. Its hard drive’s capacity makes application loading and booting superfast. Additionally, networking is never a problem with its Gigabit Ethernet and Wireless 802.11ac features. Thus, the device displays superior performance.
