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). Once I finally sorted that out and manually sent a payment from my paypal account, the hardware showed up quickly (they've always been fast). Unfortunately, the product description for the XH61V is a bit misleading.
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.
