I can't seem to find it in stores anywhere online; according to their website it was supposed to release 1st April. Anyone know where I can get one? Also has anyone tried it yet?

Instead of building an HTPC as it's too much effort to watch encrypted channels, I want to use the ZBOX to stream media files from HDD and from the internet with Boxee or Hulu.

Are there any good alternatives to ZBOX already existing that's cheap?

Won't play TrueHD or DTS-MA Blu-Ray audio.

Newegg is out, but Logic Supply has stock: http://www.logicsupply.com/products/zbox_hd_id11

If you prefer totally fanless, they have a Atom 330/ION option:

They also have a couple of fanless options that use the Broadcom CrystalHD card (optional): http://www.logicsupply.com/search?se...x=0&y=0&page=1
