Summary: I use it as an esxi server, i7-3770s (can't find the i7-3770t anywhere), 16gb of ram, so far run well during my test. I put a intel 7260 wifi card in it, I have to look at how to drill the antenna hole. I would love the same box without the serial port (free some space, put an esatat port instead ...).

Summary: After coming back to ncix (I used to purchase hardware from them more often) I was very displeased with the service. In their defense I was not well versed in their methods of payment (their HTML5 mobile website still needs a little work).

Pros: Great quality hardware. It's obvious the designers at Shuttle know how to design and build good hardware. Very slick system with high quality material, fit and finish. Small in size, its presently my HTPC.
Cons: The hardware shows no disadvantages at this point.
