Shuttle SN45G XPC - SFF Evolution (Page 16)

Conclusion

While the XPC has been out for a while, it is only my second personal experience with this marvel of technology. While I was surprised by the SN41G2, I am more than amazed by Shuttle's ability to push the envelope of SFF PC's, while still giving the end users all the extra features, including overclocking, that has helped make the hobbyist market so popular.

While cramped, Shuttle has allowed plenty of space for CPU cooler, memory modules, Hard Disk, Floppy Disk and optical drives with enough room for easy placement of cables.

As mentioned, overclocking options are at abundance. We managed to push our system to a FSB of 255MHz without any problems. This is a great addition by Shuttle, just one XPC since the SN41G2.

Performance wise with onboard graphics, it's fantastic compared to original nForce systems, with external graphics, just as good as a custom built system. In all this is one PC that is beyond words that I can express to give my praise for.

- Pros

Fast

Stable

Extremely portable

Onboard Firewire

Impressive Onboard Soundstorm Audio

Great Overclocking

- Cons

Slightly expensive
