1. Dell Zino HD 410 HTPC Review by AnandTech

The appearance of nettops around 2008 kick started the small form factor HTPC craze. Until that point of time, SFF HTPCs were restricted to the DIY crowd. However, the anemic nature of the Atom platform on which most nettops were based was a downer for many. The ION platform led to the appearance of a slew of SFF HTPCs which garnered widespread market acceptance. However, the core Atom processor left many people still disappointed.

Dell’s refresh of the Zino HD brings the system up to a level which fits better in the current marketplace. It is an extremely flexible system which offers a large amount of component options to suit numerous budgets. In addition to this, at each price level it offers a good level of performance and near silent operation in a very small chassis.

The Zino HD (Inspiron 410)’s outer appearance is essentially unchanged from the Inspiron 400 version. It has the same 3.5-by-8-by-8-inch (HWD) chassis, and you can order up to three different colored lids in addition to the standard glossy black lid. Our review unit had the Mercury Silver lid; the other available colors are Tomato Red and Peacock Blue. There’s a tray-loading optical drive and 4-in-1 media card reader in the front, and a plethora of ports in the back. Most notably, the Zino HD (Inspiron 410) has a HDMI-out port for connections to large monitors or HDTVs, a VGA port, a S/PDIF port for digital audio, and two eSATA ports for external hard drives. It’s a good thing it’s so well connected, as internal expansion is impossible, as the Zino HD (Inspiron 410) isn’t user serviceable.

4. Dell Inspiron Zino HD 410 Review by KitGuru

Although Dell sometimes get a bad name for bland presentation, in recent years they have been trying to push the envelope a little with some weird and wacky designs to attract the eye of people who value a little of the ‘personal’ touch. The Zino HD 410 is available with a variety of skins to appeal to the widest cross section of end user.
