Review: Shuttle SG33G5M barebones PC

 

A slim, whisper-quiet design with a front LCD screen and remote control

Shuttle SG33G5M

 

Media center Small Form Factor systems are very popular, especially with the arrival of Hi-Definition Audio/Video formats. While you can set up such a system on a standard PC, it's also nice to see what "goodies" companies like Shuttle offer,...

As a a last note, there is another version, that includes BT, WiFi, the SG33G5M Deluxe, but is only available in specific regions (USA/Asia, but not Europe). Below is our rating of the Shuttle SG33G5M. You can judge for yourself, depending on your...

Executive machine

 

Put this together with a E8500, VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS, a Sony/NEC SATA DVD/RW, and 4GB of HyperX RAM. Perhaps the coolest, fastest, executive machine I have ever built.

Small, Looks great. Very quite. Runs cool. VFD

Comes with only a quick setup sheet, No manual, and No driver disk. Would like the ability to put other things like a RSS feed on the VFD.

Overall not too bad...

 

For the price, the built in video should really be able to handle the blu-ray. Overall, the unit is overpriced.

Small box, looks nice, nice construction, nice remote.

The built in video is not sufficient for blu-ray. The G33 just can't keep up...unless you like jerky video...I had to buy a HD3650 to put in it...after that, it works great.

Good little HTPC, room for improvement

 

For the price the unit is not bad at all. From what i've seen, HTPC cases run $200-$300 depending on what you want, this case is slightly more expensive but comes with a Mobo, VFD display, remote and power supply. One other thing is that the PCI x16...

The case has a solid design. Some may dislike the boxy shape, as it may not exactly fit in with your other A/V equipment. However, I was a big fan of the minimalist design. (Looks like a fancy gamecube imo) Installation was easy, once the optical drive...

Could be quieter since this is an HTPC case. Also, on occasion the unit had problems awaking from sleep mode. One of the more annoying gripes I have with the unit is the lack of Vista x64 support for the Shuttle XPC Tools program, which I would use to...

Pleased so far - Very Quiet

 

I originally ordered the SG31G2, but Newegg was deeply backordered on this model at the time, so they sent me the SG33G5M instead - sweet. In turn I shout Newegg's praises to all of my tech friends and relatives, who now avoid those awful big box...

Built this Shuttle for our small vacation house in Tucson, so I was most concerned about heat buildup and stability since several friends and relatives (with modest tech skills) would be using it. It has worked very well so far with an E6750, 2 gigs of...

A little confusion figuring out which drivers on the Shuttle website were for my model the SG33G5M -vs- the generic SG33 SG31 family. I remember having problems which later were traced to either the wrong drivers or not installing them in precisely the...

Glitzy Good Time Box

 

I haven't ventured into Blu-Ray yet so no comment there. My universal remote didn't like the Shuttle configuration so I used the MS MCE config. and it worked fine. Standby is pretty funky, but I've heard that is a Vista thing that is supposed to be...

Easy to deal with, quiet, cool, looks sharp, good assembly instructions, does everything I want it to do. Nice multimedia machine.

The e-sata port in the back is recessed too much. The first cable I used didn't work. I wound up using a SIIG cable with longer exposed ends.

HD Playback Update

 

I believe more time is required to iorn out driver instability before this machine is prime time.

This weekend, I did a fresh Vista Install with the new and updated drivers. Specifically, the new Intel video driver. Now the machine works as advertised. I have played several Blu-Ray movies using a Pinoneer BDC-2202 Blu-Ray ROM and PowerDVD (latest...

Overall the machine is still a little unstable. Crashes most of the time when waking up from Sleep mode and hangs when screen saver is activated. Seems like some of the drivers still need some work.

HTPC Fun

 

Not completely sure if the G33 supports custom resolutions (conflicting web articles on the subject) but most video cards now-a-days support some correction. Intel could at least try here. Shuttles website is of little help saying to go to the...

Packs alot in a small case. The integrated PSU and GFX card save some cash and are good enough for probably most HTPC applications. I have big hands and I could still work fairly easily with the MB. Very quite and the display matches my Sony ES...

The G33 chip set. Sure it's nice that it's integrated but if you have a TV like my Sony XBR that subject to overscan, you're out of luck. I've got about 4 hours into using Powerstrip to correct the timing and resolution and am having no luck.
