David , London Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
In my opinion this unit is the best in its class. I have built several pc's using these units, they look good last well and have a very small footprint for the computing power available.
Bad points:
Still used ddr2 and not ddr3.
Also had no USB 3 making the unit time dated. However, these facilities are all present on the more upmarket units, but at an extra price.

Brian, Folkestone

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Very smart looking
Bad points:
Jeez, where do I start, it's a nightmare. Very fussy about which CPU you use, getting the heatsink screwed in is very fiddly, the cable runs are really fiddly, no onboard speaker so diagnosis is hard. Do not buy this model, other Shuttles are a breeze.

Andrew, General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice and compact, was downsizing fomr a server size case and still managed to keep 3HD's and use my existing processor/RAM.
Good cable management already set up to mximise airflow
Runs pretty quietly.
Bad points:
Barely any, a little fiddly to connect the top HD's but once theyr'e in they're very secure, pretty much what you expect from having so much kit in such a small space

Peet, Aberdeen Design or photo editing

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Sturdy design, easy to set up.
Bad points:
Unbelievably noisy. With a fast processor fitted the fan noise is such that you don't want to be in the same room as it. I built a lovely computer - if I were deaf.
