Looks good.

Pretty good price for a shuttle barebones.

Heat added.

Cold from me, seems to be just a case and a crumby mobo and for that its expensive!

its not that bad i think. I paid £100 just for a media center case a couple years ago. at least this includes motherboard and PSU.

how big is the case. Is it a lot bigger than revo?

Good deal.

Shuttle's are neat. I've always wanted one but couldn't wait for them to release a P55 compatible case.

It's clearly labeled "barebone" and you come back with a comment saying "it's only a case", it just makes you look stupid.

Will this work as a media centre PC with full hd support if I bought a card?

Is the psu man enough? install boxee ect.. on it

Sorry if thats a du dumb question, just not hot on pc's

I used to really want a Shuttle, but Revos have made these look very, very undesirable.

For less than £100 more you can get a full PC, that's way more compact than this.

It's not a bad price, but I think their time has been and gone in all fairness.

I've had a few of the early versions of these and they were great, but like wotguvnotmeguv above says, their time has come and gone. For me at least.

But it's a deal, compared to prices everywhere else, not because you think it's crumby...

I have the same question And can we add a graphic card and Blu-ray player in this casing? Thanks/...

These are for those who need more than a Revo, but less than an ATX case - a bit like myself at the minute really!

On top of the Shuttle(s) you need;

CPU
RAM
HDD
ODD (BluRay, DVD, CD, whatever you like thats 5 1/4"

Stick a basic ATI card in and you've a nice small form factor HTPC capable of HD.

In answer to a few queries this will work fine as a media center pc, you will just need a cpu, ram hard disk, tv card, blu ray and possibly a video card if you want to output HD material.

Thanks Vini & Dorset... Time for shopping for a weekend project! Any recommendation to make a below £300 HTPC (with Blu-ray preferably) would be greatly appreciated

Cheers peep.

I had a shuttle as a media centre and we used to use them in work as desktops. Nice looking but fantastically unreliable, almost every one of them (including my own) went pop.

I use a revo now as my media centre (no gaming) and that would be my choice every time over a shuttle now.

Where you getting your info from, you would just need cpu, ram, hard drive and a graphics card, you wouldn't need a tv card nor Blu-Ray, you can get a £35 Ati 5450 for about £35 that will output HD via HDMI.

If you really wanted to do it on the cheap, you could get one of the special Athlon.Phenoms and overclocking, unbranded ram, cheap hard drive and a cheap graphics card and you could use it for most basic things.

I bought a used Shuttle off ebay at xmas time. Paid £80 delivered but it was a full base unit (I just bought a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers seperately).

Mine is limited to 2GB RAM max but its only a PC for the family/downstairs. I keep the powerhouse upstairs in my office.

If your looking for 'the netbook of PCs' then Shuttle is the way to go!


Hot from me.

When will people learn you're voting on the deal, not whether YOU think it's worth the money.

It's actually a half decent mobo, I bought one from ebayer for £99 and stuck a Q6600 in it with a
decent SSD with 8GB Kingston ram (seemed a bit picky about uber budget ram though, hence the Kingston) - plenty quick enough for most stuff.

Heat from me, as it's a good deal lol

I've got 2 Zotac Zbox's, while they are much smaller than the Shuttle here, they are just not quick enough for what I use a PC for - the Zbox's are now running XBMC natively and I love them.

I bought the Shuttle as I needed more power, but didn't want a full size ATX case, I also had the Q6600 laying around and some DDR3 - made sense.

The Shuttle is a nice quality bit of kit, well made, nice to work on and build, it's quiet and looks pretty decent too.

Must of had about 5 diff shuttles over the years and cant say i had any problems with any of them.

Same here, nice and quiet too.

People saying about the revo, The revo cannot bitstream HD audio, and for a HDPC that is terrible.

Heheh, brilliant.

Wouldn't the HP MicroServer work out cheaper with the cashback and has 4 bays.

if you are going to correct another poster, you may NOT want to advise buying an AMD processor to go in an intel motherboard...

You would need a TV card if you wanted to record TV (obviously)
You would need a Blu ray drive to play back Blu Ray Discs (Obviously)

Of course these are entirely optional but if I was buying this is a media PC then this is 2 things I would want from it

I've the same experience.

I've personally run 5 and have had clients with 30 or so. They have all had amazingly long lives. Some are still running happily 7 years later.

I've plenty of other brands that have not lasted 18months.

The only issues I've been getting with the older ones is needing to replace the cmos batteries in them! As they are running out of juice being so old.

It because I do understand the subject I voted cold. Its poor value, and you did not even mange to read my comment properly so Im not going to take your thoughts too seriously.

You would be better off getting a media pc case and building it up yourself. You should get a motherboard with a better CPU socket, and perhaps a HDMI out with dedicated graphics, DDR3 and PCI Slots as well... would be a much better buy and it doesn't have to be expensive.
At the moment I am using a CoolerMaster case and 600w CiT PSU with an Asus Motherboard, 4gb RAM and a AMD Athlon II 640 Quad Core, running Ubuntu 10.10. Cost me around £300 but well worth the money. I was going to buy a small case but was worried about heat. So, I went for a Micro ATX case as to be fair it is pretty big. But, I have put thermometers and a Scythe Fan control into a 3.5" bay and it never goes over 30 degrees C so I could have used a smaller case,

Just thought I'd tell you to THINK BEFORE YOU BUY, this is the case I was going to buy; amazon.co.uk/gp/…uct

Shuttle makes great mini barebones and I have always been a fan of it.

The case you linked to seems to have heat issues. I have a mini ITX and although a cheaper build, certainly not as sturdy or well put together as a Shuttle.
