What experts liked
As for the Zotac GTX 1050 Ti Mini, it is hardly a flagship product. However, it excels in two areas, where it is currently unmatched by any other model: size and affordability. Due to its diminutive frame, this GTX 1050 model can easily fit even in the smallest Mini ITX cases, and it is the cheapest GTX 1050 Ti that you can get at the moment.

What experts didn't like
First, due to being cooled by only a single fan, the card is bound to get hot and loud when under stress, not to mention that it will not take any real overclocking. And second, you can immediately tell that the design is highly basic and not very appealing.
