Earlier this year we reviewed the Zotac Nano ID64 Plus mini PC. It's similar to the Intel NUC, but has more flexible options such as the choice between a hard disk or two mSATA SSDs. We tested it again with two SSDs, so today you can read about having RAID in a mini-PC.
The Zotac Zbox Nano ID64 Plus is a mini-PC that fits in the palm of your hand. Its compact size is deceiving, it's a pretty potent and versatile little computer. The hardware is similar to that of an Ultrabook, and our test sample contains an Intel Core i5-3337U Ivy Bridge dual-core processor. It has lots of external connectors with four rear USB 3.0 ports, two frontal USB 2.0 ports, infrared, a card reader, HDMI, DisplayPort and eSATA. WiFi is built in and with the included adapter you can mount it on the back of a TV.
When the Zotac Zbox Nano ID64 Plus first came out we didn't have two of the same mSATA SSDs, but thanks to Plextor we can now test the mini-PC with two 128 GB M5M MSATA SSDs.
