5 out of 5 eggsworth every penny

Pros: In an age of dinky plastic computers, the sturdy steel chassis and practical design is very refreshing. The fans are quiet and all the parts fit nicely.

Plenty of USB ports (this was the main selling point for me). Liked that it had dual gigabit ethernet and serial ports too. I use this as a desktop machine mounted to a 24" monitor, but it would be great as a server in a small office too if you put in a quad-core i5+512GB SSD with a cheap NAS for backups.

Cons: No display port interface and only 2 of the USB ports are 3.0

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - clean industrial black styling
- sturdy all metal chassis
- compact size
- vesa mountable
- impressive heat sink & fan assembly
- seems like a well thought-out interior - nice drive bracket
- runs quietly & cool
- solid selection of ports
- superior customer service (more below)
- saves me from making a decision about which mobo to get
- bios seems easy enough to navigate
- comes with vesa mount brackets
- reasonable price considering what's included (even the thermal adhesive!)
- extra ethernet port in case one of them fails?
- easy enough to install components for a first-timer like me

Cons: - cmos jumper in inconvenient location (more below)
- external power cable could be more robust
- small chassis means close quarters inside even for my small hands
- might not play well with all keyboards (more below)
- pre-installed mobo may limit certain component selections (didn't matter to me as much but may to others who need faster processors etc)
- sizeable sata lead awkward to position due to tight space inside even with a 2.5" SSD

Other Thoughts: This was my very first build. Some of my cons are nit-picking, yes, but isn't that the purpose of a review? Small cons are still cons.

I'm using it for database/web dev stuff primarily so the absence of more uber graphics isn't a big deal for me.

Components:

Intel Core i3-3220 3.3 GHz
OWC Mercury Electra 6G SSD 120 GB
G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333
SIIG JK-US0412-S1 Slim Aluminum Keyboard
Logitech M510 Wireless Mouse
Gateway KX2703 Monitor (mounted to back)
Windows 7

Erik from Shuttle has been truly incredible. I had to call them on a few occasions and a live human always picked up within two rings. On each occasion he was super courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and patient in walking me through a few snags I hit with my first build here.

I had to reset the CMOS on a few occasions. You must remove all four screws of the fan assembly, unplug the lead, and remove the entire assembly as the jumper is located right underneath. Not a major issue, but real inconvenient. A seasoned pro might not need to reset it as much as I did though.

The DS61 mobo will not post with my SIIG keyboard connected. I need to keep the SIIG unplugged with rebooting, then once Win 7 splash screen hits, I plug SIIG back in and it's working fine. Erik at Shuttle informed me that some keyboards may pose this issue even after re-installing the latest drivers.

My new wireless Logitech sometimes experiences hiccups. I can't definitively say it's the DS61 though.

Finding the right monitor to attach the DS61 to its back may be a bit challenging. Monitor's ports must shoot downward first of all which I prefer anyway. Height-adjustable stands were out since that part would occupy where the mount should attach.

I know external power supplies are a necessary evil with small builds like this but they still don't invoke supreme confidence.

I love my system. I would gladly purchase this one again. LOVE the sexy industrial design! Who the hell needs cheap plastic???

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, feature-packed and small.

Cons: Price is a bit steep, graphics chipset didn't work with Linux out-of-the-box. No AMD version of this barebone system.

Other Thoughts: You can use this system for a wide variety of projects. USB3.0, dual gigabit NICs and virtually as processing power as you want.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid system with quality components

Pros: Everything about this system evokes good design with qualitly components. I'm running Xubuntu with a Celeron G1620 CPU, and the performance is outstanding. With the dual Ethernet ports, serial port, HDMI and DVI video out, and mini-PCIE slot; this system could be used for all kinds of embedded applications, dedicated router/firewall, etc., but it also does a fine job as a general purpose desktop system.

Cons: None that I can think of.

4 out of 5 eggsGood barebones system, unfortunate initial setup

Pros: Easy to setup, great support for Ubuntu 12.04.

Cons: When I first set it up and turned it on, there was power to everything but video. Only after disassembling and comparing the motherboard diagram to the actual motherboard did I discover that the voltage jumper was set to 3.3 instead of 5 (the default according to the diagram). Switching fixed it and it's working great now!

Other Thoughts: Dinged a point for voltage jumper being incorrectly set on shipping, others not as knowledgeable would not have known to look for this and returned it for replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these little things!

Pros: I've put together 4 of these little beasties. They're nice and small, very quiet, and versatile.

The layout is tight but well thought out and easy to work with.

Big pro is that the NICs are supported under VMware ESXi 5.0/5.1!! These boxes are very nice white-box ESXi servers. If you wish to upgrade to 5.5, search for "Andreas Peetz ESXi 5.5 missing Realtek drivers". He details how to add the drivers back into the installation ISO.

Cons: None.

Some people mentioned high cost, but when you take into account Its very small size coupled with the fact that you're getting the motherboard, a case, a vesa mount, and the power supply it really isn't.

Other Thoughts: #1) i5-3470S, 16GB RAM, 250GB Samsung EVO mSATA, tiny USB flash drive - ESXi, VMs on NAS
#2) same as #1
#3) i3-3225, 8GB RAM, 120GB Crucial M500 - HTPC in living room, content on NAS
#4) i3-3225, 8GB RAM, 120GB Crucial M500 - Astaro/Sophos firewall

5 out of 5 eggssmall and efficient

Pros: solid construction, takes up very little space, plenty of usb connections and monitor outputs, simple to build, very very quiet, no problems after 5 months now

Cons: not really a con - no optical drives but I knew that and have my OS on a bootable usb

Other Thoughts: built for my exam lane at my office - small physical and power footprint is great and is more than sufficient to run all my health record software quickly, attach all the peripherals I need, and run quietly.

5 out of 5 eggsWhy buy NUC?

Pros: You can read the technical specs, but it is definitely everything it says.

I am very impressed at the power (Desktop CPU), but yet so quite. The heatsink integrated into the case really does a great job dissipating the heat.

I use it for an HTPC, so it had to be quite. However, I run file services, home automation software, and all of my entertainment needs through this thing with no lag.

I loaded it with 8GB (1 stick future upgrade), 256GB msata, 3TB 2.5 sata, 3 tuner cards and I5 3470S 65watt desktop cpu.

I have not even used the USB3.0 yet, as I can not believe I have 3.25TB inside a case the size of my hands.

Cons: none that I can tell.

Other Thoughts: This thing is definitely commercial grade. The inside heatsinks and other circuits are massive.

4 out of 5 eggsWonderful little box

Pros: Very well laid out box for such small size. This thing is easy to assemble, packed tight, and runs cool. Also very sturdy.

Cons: torqued hard drive bracket, the hard drive bracket came torqued which made it hard to fully secure the hard drive from both sides. Something ot be aware of,

Other Thoughts: I bought this for carrying around and later use as a home server. it is excelent for carrying a full desktop when needed. Also, it runs very quiet with my Intel i3 3.4 Ghz even when running 3d renders. I've been quite happy with it so far. The board layout is great and very well compartmentalized. The only gripe I have is that the hard drive mounting bracket was torqued, so I have only been able to mount one side of the hard drive. Despite this, the entire buld is still quite solid.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little ESXi Whitebox

Pros: This makes a nice simple ESXi whitebox. It doesn't support some of the more advanced options (like Direct I/O passtrough), but it works as a simple server. I had a spare i3-2130 processor from a desktop upgrade and 8GB of laptop RAM from upgrading my laptop. This was a great option that allows me to use both for an additional ESXi server on my network.
Low Power requirements
Dual Gigabit NICs mean I could run this as a firewall appliance if I wanted (pfSense anyone).

Cons: None really. This suited my purposes.
