2 out of 5 eggsBrought 2 one works other DEAD

Pros: Great Little Computer,

Cons: On board graphics card is only 1mg to 8mg had to order upgrade. Got 1 system up and running great, Vista Biz. Went to turn on Second PC DOA, Lights Camera if it had one, no action. Have to pay over $13 to ship it back I hope newegg will test the new one!

Other Thoughts: The CD Drive plate is not removable. The software for the screen only has the custom text when the xtools program is running you can not change the default.

Pros: Works flawlessly with windows 7 32 bit. There was not a known version for XPC tools. But this is solved by the compatibility mode in windows itself. install the vista version in 32 bit and run it in compatibility mode for vista 32 bit in windows 7. VFD driver found itself as well as the fingerprint reader. Bluetooth and wireless and remote..... amazing!

Cons: Fingerprint reader is useless. software has a total of 5 activations and will not function after that, so no messing around testing it for me. Took a while to figure the relationship between BIOS and the VFD display built into the front panel. Additionally all pin headers for USB on motherboard are used in the deluxe version. Comes with blank 3.5" sot for card reader/floppy/extra HDD but no more space to plug usb stuff in. No 64 bit support for vista or vindows 7 as of this review for the VFD display and the XPC tools.

Other Thoughts: E5300 dual core pentium (wolfdale core) overclocked to 3.06 GHZ from stock 2.50 GHZ using the shuttle ice ICE in manual control mode. set to 100 fan speed of 127(using xpc tools). the way the fan pulses in smart control mode is highly annoying. i just found a number i could live with in and cool the box sufficiently. memory used was g skill 1GB sticks X 2. ddr2 800 but manual timings were set to 667 fsb to avoid a problem i was having with the intel 3100 chipset after overclocking the FSB to 245 to get the 3.06 GHZ (which ended up bringing the '667Mhz' to exactly 814 Mhz, which is a very mild overclock. i got so frustrated with subpar video i put in an ATI hd4650 512 mb ddr3 video card, games are smooth as silk now as well as bluray. optical out (SPDIF) going into my home theater receiver. and an extra usb card in the PCI slot that had some extra pin headers so i could plug in a 52-1 card reader in the front 3.5 inch bay. This thing rocks !!!! thank you Newegg for some serious savings

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to Vista 64 bit issue

Pros: Update to my last comment. The issue was not related to video driver or any other hardware. It was to do with spydoctor from Google pack on vista 64 bit.

Cons: None - very happy to purchase this

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Construction

Pros: Looks, VFD, Compact, low noise and really good construction. This is second Shuttle I have build for home use. Things are arranged so well that I took some time to admire the internal construction. CPU heat sink is connected to the system fan a brilliant idea to reduce noise.

Cons: Has some difficulty aligning DVD Drive with the door button. Other than that vista 64 screen savers, switch user and logoff seem to kill the signal to monitor .... no option but to restart the machine. Monitor connected to the HDMI. I do not believe it is Shuttle issue but some thing to do with video driver and vista 64 … still working on that issue.

Other Thoughts: Build
1 TB Samsung HDD
Pioneer DVD burnner
Intel 9550S 65W Quard Core
Vista 64 Home Premium

4 out of 5 eggsIt has everything I need

Pros: tons of features, finger print reader, VFD, wifi, 1394, HDMI, etc. Just got it, installed Core 2 Quad 9550, 4G memory, 500G HD, 24" LCD. Still Looking for a blu-ray burner. Currently have DVD-ROM installed. Just installed Windows 7RC yesterday. It works with some issues

Cons: Most issues I have seem to be related with Win 7. I think I can't blame Shuttle as they don;t have Win7 driver yet. But here is a list, xPC tools crashes on Win7. VGA driver wn't install. I got the latest G33 chipset driver from intel. Without xPC tools, I don;t know how to make VFD work. And for some readon, HDMI doesn;t work with my 25" ASUS LCD. But DVI and VGA works fine. And HDMI works with my Samsung 50" LCD.

Other Thoughts: I wish Shuttle will provide Win 7 drivers/utilities very soon.

5 out of 5 eggsShuttle Good

Pros: Assembled in 30mins, no issues so far. Lots of people complaint about Noise issue, mine is not bad at all. Installed Windows 7 ultimate, Works just fine, all the components works great except the VFD.
I didnt have to install any additional drivers, Windows 7 took care of it all (Except for VFD). I havent quite make the VFD to work, tried installing Vista64 driver on this the display changed from 'Home Theater' to 'Current time' and thats it.
Bluetooth (tested with BT keyboard), Wireless adapter, video (HDMI) all worked out of the box with out any issue. Media center report works great as well.

Cons: None, I couldnt make the VFD to work, of course I didnt spend any time to make this work. Display didnt work when I connected this to old CRT monitor, when I switched this to HDMI, it worked fine.

Other Thoughts: Great product for a cheap price.

3 out of 5 eggsBeautiful unit but with flaws

Pros: The build quality is beautiful and so is the unit. It looks expensive. The mirrored front panel and the VFD display look classy. The Quad Core 6600 I’ve current got in it runs too hot so I’m going to change to a 65W Core2 Duo. I was worried that updating the BIOS might not go smoothly because the Windows program offered on the Shuttle site to update the BIOS lists Windows XP only but it worked fine under Windows 7 32 Bit.

Cons: The integrated Intel graphics are woefully inadequate for HTPC use. I’m running a Core Quad 6600 and 4 gigs of memory and media center still bogs down. And there are few options offered by the Intel graphics program. It will play Xvid and Dvix movies fine but HD content from my cable company slows it down. I’m using the latest driver from Intel.
It won’t display properly on my Panasonic 42 inch plasma TV. None of the offered resolutions work. Either they are too small or too big. I’ve got a Gigabyte unit with integrated ATI 3200 graphics that works fine with this TV. Of course it also handles media center well with only 2 gigs of memory so I suspect the Intel graphics. I’m going to buy a video card and avoid these problems but be aware the Intel graphics are simply terrible for HTPC use.

Other Thoughts: The unit initially didn’t recognize the Q6600 processor I installed but after I changed the multiplier it seems to be working OK. Strangely there’s no automatic setting for the multiplier. I’ve used both 4 Gigs of OCZ and G Skill memory and both work but the LED on the second memory slot turns red although it doesn’t seem to effect the memory. And nowhere can I find any reference to the LEDs. The unit works fine with Windows 7. It actually works better with this operating system then Vista. The VFD driver doesn’t work properly but I did get the XPC tools to work OK. Even the Bluetooth and WiFi work OK. Mainly I like Windows 7 better because it handles the HD channels on my Brighthouse cable.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Got the shipment quickly. All the parts worked. The instructions were pretty straight forward and simple to follow. The little shelf for the hard drive and DVD drive has a neat and useful design. Also, the small size is very convenient.

Cons: I ran into a bit of a snag with my DVD drive conflicting with my hard drive, as it was set to master drive, but after putting the DVD drive as CS it was able to boot from it and to install windows fresh.

--Note the DVD drive i use is IDE and so is the hard drive.

Other Thoughts: A fun little box. I used it to put together a computer for my parents to use, as they had a very old computer. Aside from my drive conflict snag, it was a smooth process.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst Shuttle experience may be last

Pros: At $230ish - a great buy. Style, proposed features, and current Intel chipset(s).

Cons: Hmmm, where to start? If you are planning on Vista x64, keep this in mind - NO VFD support and NO fingerprint recognition support. There may be a driver on the Shuttle website for the VFD, but it doesn't work. And, memory will only run at 800 - so why pay for faster RAM?

Other Thoughts: Still, overall, a good buy for the money. The best test will be if I ever hear back from Shuttle support regarding the VFD x64 drivers.... not holding my breath :-)

3 out of 5 eggsNice for HTPC except for HDMI

Pros: Nice size small form factor. Quiet (not sure why others say it's noisy) Easy to set up. Very nice looking, Includes Remote control and also programable to a Harmony remote. Aside from HDMI issues, this machine is quiet, fast and efficient. Haven't had any other problems with it. CPU runs cool between 34-39 degrees celsius. System hardly goes past 44 degrees celsius. Never have heard fan kick on full speed. (I have forced it though, and then it is very loud, but I just let the fan auto-speed and it never gets loud)

Cons: HDMI video goes bad. My friend has one and it went south after about 4 months, got another and went bad after about 1.5 years. I have had mine for 2 years and now my onboard HDMI has gone bad too. (Just displays washed out, vga still works. Also HDMI with PowerDVD is bad, I have only had one driver set that Intel released that will play Blu-ray with PowerDVD otherwise if you use latest drivers it won't play Blu-ray, but will play regular DVD's. If your main goal is to use HDMI and PowerDVD, get a PCI-E 2.0 Video card, but also beware that this case is kind of tight on the PCI slots so even though you don't need a low profile card, you need a "skinny" card. Anything with a fan probably wont fit unless the fan is on the right, then you cannot use the PCI slot which I need for my TV tuner.

Other Thoughts: Since my HDMI fried, the system still works just fine. I had to put in a video card though. I used a PCI-E 2.0 Sapphire HD-4550 fanless card and fits okay with the TV tuner in the PCI slot. However since the system fan isn't running much, and out of the way of the video card, the card was heating up bad and cutting out video. I had to get a small fan that I hooked up to the aux fan port and put it in front of the video card. I actually can hear the little fan more than the larger system fan, but it did the trick. The Sapphire card just seems to need a little bit of air movement, but the HD-4550 card is much much much better than the onboard HDMI. I am glad that the Sapphire card also outputs audio via HDMI just fine. (The onboard does also) However I would rather only use 1 HDMI cable instead of HDMI and optical. The HD-4550 addresses that if your HDMI fries or you want a better video card. The only con about the card is having to add a fan.
