Packaging

 

As the system is small and tightly packed, it fits into a tiny box and requires minimal packaging. Below, you can see the backside of the box. The outer box is a sleeve covering an inner plain black box.

Opening the plain black box, you're greeted with a getting started guide and a recovery disk for Windows 8.1.

Above left, the ZOTAC ZBOX is wrapped in a plastic bag and suspended in the middle of the box by two foam endcaps. To the right, the package's contents are displayed. You can see the power adapter, screws for mounting to a VESA mount, the plate for mounting to a VESA mount, the system itself, the Wi-Fi antenna, and a mini-S/PDIF adapter.

This is the front of the system. From left to right, we have the power button, indicator lights, IR receiver, card reader, two USB 2.0 ports, and the headphone and microphone jacks.

This is the back I/O panel. From left to right, we have the power jack, the DisplayPort and HDMI ports, two USB 3.0 ports, the gigabit Ethernet port, two more USB 3.0 ports, the eSATA port, and the Wi-Fi connector.

Here you can see the bottom of the system. The triangle-like indents are used for the VESA mounting plate.

Here we have removed the bottom panel to gain entry to the system. You can see the FORESEE SSD, Wi-Fi chip, and the single Crucial DIMM.

Here we have removed the SSD so you can get a better look at the motherboard. There isn't much of interest on the board to note.
