Thought is was a great PC


We're hoping Shuttle will professionally honor their warranty and quickly return our Shuttle in an "As New" condition.

Small and quiet, this PC seemed like the perfect machine for us. We placed it on top of the desk where it was super easy to use

Mother board went up like a slice of burnt toast

It's okay


Had to RMA the first time due to high temps, it was either the heatsink or a broken thermometer or somethign but the second one was much better than the first.

Small form factor ; USB charging port when the unit is off ; Plenty of USB 3.0 ports

Power cables are not long enough to the video card, they are too short and putting the drive cage back in while trying to negoiate the cables is truly a pain and puts undue pressure on the video ccard ; The back of the case where you screw down the...

Great overall gaming setup


The system specs are: Intel Core i5-2500k @ 3.6ghz Crucial DD3 8GB WD Raptor 300GB (O/S) Seagate 1.5TB (secondary) Pioneer Blu-Ray burner @ 12x EVGA GTX 560ti w/ 448 cores

Ive been building gaming machines for over 10 years now and this is my first foray into smaller form factor cases and let me tell you ... bravo Shuttle. Not only does this case support full sized video cards such as the GTX 560ti, which is installed...

The only donwside to this case is that there is no built in wi-fi. Not a huge deal, as you can buy usb wi-fi cards for about $40, but having it internal would have been great. Now mind you, if you DONT install a video card that takes up both PCIe...

Nice Package


Using with I7-3770S, Muskin 240 GB mSata SSD, Kingston Hyperix 1600 memory and a LG BR Burner. I cannot tell if the memory is running at 1600 or for some reason throttled back to 1333. Beware, this motherboard, unlike other Mini ITX Z77 boards does not...

4 Dimm slots ; 1 mSata slot for SSD ; Interesting cooler ; Small package ; Keeps cool and quiet

Could use better bios

First one has onboard video + CMOS issue, RMA'ing with Newegg


For the price, you expect it to perform better. I might just have to build my own instead...

Nice compact design ; Accepts a full size ATX Power Supply ; Decent price

Should have made the HDD tray removable or front/side loading ; First one was not fully DOA but has intermittent onboard video artifacting ; PC Doctor says CMOS pattern test failed ; Front USB 3.0 port is randomly connecting/disconnecting my external...

Nice little barebones box


Nice size

When closing the optical drive tray, it gets caught on Shuttle's door ; The front panel USB header cable is shrink wrapped with firm plastic which, if bumped, can rip the connector off the motherboard pins, and bend the pins

Great Compact PC build!


Highly recommended!

Very compact and well built chassis, enclosure, motherboard and power supply. This is a 30 minute build! Came with updated BIOS for my Ivy Bridge processor. Incredibly fast, using SSD drives. Relatively quiet and runs cool

None so far

Flagship Shuttle box, seems fine, nothing special


I've built dozens of Shuttles, since nearly the beginning. Even used to participate on a message board mostly about them. Got tired of dealing with bad power supplies so drifted away. Needed a new, extra portable box, figured I'd give them another try....

Worked fine from first boot ; Didn't have any problems with i7-3770K ; Nice, clean, understated, (professional looking) front ; GTX 670 fit OK ; mSATA / mini-PCIe support on motherboard could be cool to play with

Cheap, thin, sharp, metal inside ; Only space for 1x5.25 and 2x3.5 total ; No built-in provision for mounting 2.5" drive anywhere ; Cable to motherboard for USB3 front ports is very stiff, hard to squish down into place out of the way without causing...
