Pros: Inexpensive and reasonable sound quality
Cons: Completely fell apart after a couple months. The microphone jack fell out, the cable into the headset came undone, and it generally disintegrated.
It looks like the welds all came loose or something. Did nothing but put it on my head while I sat at a desk. Nothing fancy that would stress the thing.
Not loud (not really quiet either)
very well made
very well laid out
Cons: I'd like these machines to be quieter. There are two fans in the machine. A case/cpu fan and a PSU fan. Both should be quieter but they're fine for office applications. I wouldn't use these for media centers.
Not so much a con as a consequence of the size is that there is very little room for big add on cards. Do make sure to only fit small form factor video cards into this machine.
WATCH the heat. These things sadly do have a problem with getting too hot. Just be aware of it.
Other Thoughts: I love these shuttle boxes. They're the perfect computer cases in a lot of ways so long as you don't need to put huge video cards in or lots of harddrives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It serves 4 screens without flickering or artifacts.
Cons: I've had some trouble getting it to work on Windows 7. I installed this card in a shuttle case and for whatever reason the screens don't turn on if I set the PCI card as the dominant graphics card. I had to instead set the shuttle's internal video card as dominant and then use the PCI card as a secondary. Whether this is shuttle's fault, windows 7, or the card's fault is unknown but it is annoying.
It works fine since the cards can both work at once but it was a struggle to figure out how to get past the black screen. It happens right when drivers are loaded. Prior to that everything works fine. So it might be a problem with windows 7's internal driver library.
