CNET First Look
ZT Affinity 7334MaThe $799 ZT Affinity 7334Ma's stellar performance benchmarks, Blu-ray drive, and plenty of room for expansion give it a step up from the competition. ZT still needs help in the external design department, but this system certainly earns our recommendation...
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey, what's up, guys? I'm Justin Yu, associate editor with CNET.com with a first look at the ZT Affinity 7334 MA desktop computer. Now it's an excellent mid-range system and easily recommended at $800 but before we get into the components, let's spend a second on the design, or lack thereof. Now like many mid ranges made by ZT, this one isn't gonna be winning any beauty pageants anytime soon. Now that's not to say that it's flat-out ugly, but the plain black tower just looks really generic. Now anyway, the front does give you two USB ports, audio jacks, as well as a media card reader and a blu-ray drive up top here. Now that means you do have the option of putting it in your living room if you want to, and it's got HDMI, DVI and VGA ports to go along with that. So ZT does offer a great set of components in the system including a 3 GHz AMD phenom II quad core processor, 8 gigs of ram, an ATI Radeon integrated graphics chip and 64 bit windows. Now competitive systems do include a dedicated 3-D video card, but they have to sacrifice processing speeds to keep it in the same price. Now speaking of performance, we have to hand it to ZT for turning out top-notch scores in all four of our benchmark tests, mostly due to its 3 GHz clock speed. And the integrated video actually cuts down on yearly energy costs. Now you can find out all the details and test results in our full review, but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu and you just took a first look at the ZT Affinity 7334 MA mid-range desktop computer. Thanks for watching. ^M00:01:30 [ Music ]
