The Package


Shuttle have opted for a black colour scheme with the Glamor line-up of XPCs. The pack doesn't give you a whole lot of information though; we actually can't even see the model number anywhere. We highly doubt that this would be the case when the units are shipped out to Shuttle's local distributors around the world otherwise it would be a bit of a lucky dip scenario.



One side of the box has the most information with a number of logos that mention Vista, DDR2, Overclocking, 7.1 Audio, Smart Fan and ICE technology, though apart from that there are no other details on what the particular model is capable of. Clearly the just mentioned features are seen across the board on the Glamor series, instead of making a number of boxes for each different model Shuttle have just chosen to create the one type and then simply place the model number on it.



Outside of the box there isn't much more to the package, when you dive inside you have a quick guide setup manual that gives you a run down on all the buttons and ports along with a little guide to installing the CPU. We have the usual driver CD that lets you get up and running as soon as possible, a black floppy disk cable and also a connector that converts HDMI to DVI.



There doesn't really need to be a huge amount of extras included in a Shuttle XPC as a lot of the regular motherboard extras are already included in the actual unit itself, such as the SATA and IDE cables.
