[REVIEW] Shuttle XH61V + GT Mod


We recently got the opportunity to test one of Shuttle's newest slim PC's, behold the XH61V. This model is the “Ivy bridge” upgrade from last year's “Sandy bridge” XH61 model.

Excellent Product


Specs don't mention it, but it has two front USB ports, a front mic jack, and a front headphone jack (they're hidden inside a panel underneath the power button).

Very easy to put together; comes with clear instruction manual. Perfectly compatible with my old laptop optical drive and harddrive running Linux. Could not have asked for a better office/work computer. Small, quiet, runs cool. Would highly recommend...

Have not found anything bad yet. Will it play games? Probably not, but I didn't buy it for gaming purposes

good development machine


For what I need it is a great machine. I'm using it for embedded software development. The two COM ports are great to connect to my devices and I use one LAN for regular networking and the second one dedicated for Wireshark. I know I can get USB to...

small, silent, fast machine I use for embedded systems development in Linux. Has COM ports ; No issues with Centos 6.x and Windows8

I wish I could fit a second 2.5" drive instead of the CD/DVD. I do not use the CD/DVD much, and when I use it a external USB unit will do Ok

Great little system. It has a lot more power than the older Core 2 system that it replaced which couldn't handle 4k videos or videos with DTS-MA streams. This machine would also be perfect to sit on a desktop. It'd need to sit flat tho since it only...

Size - It's small. Barely bigger than a Wii which makes it perfect for an HTPC ; Build - Really good quality build, especially the power button. The button does have a large blue light in the middle, but it's tolerable. The internals are also solidly...

RS232 - ??? I guess they aren't really a con since they are pretty much useless and I just disabled them in BIOS. They don't get in the way but I'd have preferred more USB ports ; Specs - This can't really be considered a con against the product so...

So far it is a waste of time and money


This was my first shuttle experience and it's going to cost me a lot of money. It's already costing me lots of time as i was going to use this as a small server in a business. The shipping costs have already cost me enough.

small. Makes an oversized paperweight

Can't get it to work! I have built tons of computers before. Stupid thing doesn't even post. Support is non -existant. I called Taiwan but they don't speak english. I tried differerent ram and SSD and nothing. The external power supply is very finicky....
