Reviews for the Zoostorm 3389-9426/A
Source: Techradar Archive.org version
While the Zoostorm 3389-9426/A doesn't do enough to win an award, it's not a bad machine by any means. On the whole, build quality and usability are good, while the strong set of features means you won't be left wanting. However, if you crave portability or power, there are better options in this group test.
