Pros: We got a couple of these to upgrade our primary monitors, and they were so nice we ordered another pair for our secondary monitors as well.
Nice resolution, brightness is almost too high, had to turn it down a bit.
Dell monitors seem to last forever, so though they are expensive, we feel they are a great buy.
USB3 ports and built-in hub are a nice feature.
Cons: There are no more VGA or DVI or other 'legacy' ports on the high-end Dell monitors, it's all HDMI, DisplayPort, and MiniDisplayPort (Thunderbolt for us Mac users). Yeah, yeah, yeah, adapters, cables, gender benders, some of which actually work. Just make sure you've got the right interfaces on what you're planning on connecting.
Oh, and our "hang under the monitor" speakers from our older Dell monitors don't work with these new ones, again peripherals changed...
Other Thoughts: We'd certainly buy them again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Love the Shuttle boxes, use them for everything!
Cons: The description says it uses "2 x 260Pin SO-DIMM DDR4 2133", but the actual motherboard uses full-size 288-pin DDR4 DRAMs. This cost me almost $150 in buying the wrong memory, that I have to try to get NewEgg to refund, and then waste a few more days awaiting the correct RAM.
And the pins that hold the heatsink down to the motherboard weren't installed, and one of them got bent, and didn't want to hold together properly, though I took it all apart and straightened it out. This "pushpin" thing doesn't hold a candle to the previous method of using screws...
Other Thoughts: OK, so Shuttle seems a bit confused as well, as they list quad memory kits (there are only two physical slots) in their hardware Memory Support List, but this turned a nice Saturday evening build into a disappointment.
More results if I think of it after I get the parts and try again...
Pros: When it works it's fine
Cons: Some drive failure modes will cause the entire array to hang, which is kind of the opposite of what should happen. Removing the bad drive allows the array to continue to work, though it is degraded.
