Summary: Package was opened with a dent on the top of the case. The package should have been put into another box and taped closed. Newegg is better than how they shipped this product! I should not have to pay for shipping or 15% re-stocking since this product was defective and not by my choice.
Pros: Nice style Great compact size.
Cons: Video does not work with on-line Netflix. Audio does not work at all. Does not seem to handle the E7200 CPU ( latest BIOS loaded )
Pros: Compact, sturdy, solid construction and absolutely dependable. I got this unit to replace a sub-par HP 1810y, which just ran slower and slower. Same configuration on this machine and it never misses a beat. My wife uses it as her primary machine. Mama's happy!
Cons: I've heard the PS doesn't last. Hasn't been a problem yet. Not a lot of room in the case, but enough for an average build.
Summary: GREAT BUY! I was astonished by how much smaller it was compared to how I imagined it. It's a great looking case. You can't go wrong with buying this thing, it's worth it. I'll definitely look to Shuttle in the future.
Pros: Wow! You'll be amazed by this little box. Everything is clean and organized, and it's easy and very intuitive in how you take it apart. Just a great overall design. PSU is efficient and the CPU cooling system was well thought out.
Cons: That darn blue LED in the front.. I'm using this for an HTPC and that sucker is briiiight. Nothing a little square of electrical tape couldn't take care of though.
Summary: Works great with Linux (Ubuntu as well as SuSE 11.0)
Pros: I bought this unit for a client who is donating it to Habitat for Humanity project in Mexico. Long story short - I installed Windows XP Pro and Ubuntu Linux (dual boot) on it without so much as a hiccup. Granted, the chipset is a bit dated, but overall it's performed exceptionally well. It's a bi...
Cons: Intel chipset on this Shuttle is a bit long in the tooth.
Summary: I bought an open box system to save some money. The specifications state that the max memory supported is 2GB, this is incorrect! I'm using A-DATA 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit, Model: ADQVE1B16K which I bought at Newegg.
Pros: Used this and some spare parts I had to try out Ubuntu. Here are the parts that were installed: Intel Core2Duo E6600, 4GB RAM ADATA 800MHz, 160GB IDE hard drive (as master), IDE DVD drive (as slave), ATI X600 256MB video card. The latest version of Ubuntu installed without a glitch. The system is...
