Shuttle XPC Nano

 

The Shuttle XPC Nano ultra-small-form-factor desktop computer is an inexpensive and appealing choice if you want to connect your PC to an HDTV, have a desire to tinker, or both.

Low price. Compact build. Plenty of I/O ports. Expandable memory and storage. M.2 solid-state drive (SSD). 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Ships with VESA mount. Three-year warranty.

Only 2GB of memory and a 32GB SSD. Doesn't come with a keyboard or mouse.

Performance and Conclusion You shouldn't expect workstation-class performance from a $279 PC, but the XPC Nano comes equipped with an Intel Celeron 3205U processor with Intel HD Graphics that's more powerful than the Intel Atom CPUs found in the...

Shuttle XPC Slim DS67U Barebone

 

Today we are putting Shuttle's new DS67U barebone under testing, the successor to the DS57U product family. The space-saving , low-energy mini-PC has an array of hardware features and can be used in many areas of application.

We had a lot of fun playing around with the Shuttle DS67U. With a wireless mouse/keyboard, it can replace your everyday PC system. It is economical enough consuming just 15 Watt and costs around 226 Euros.

Shuttle XPC Nano NC02U5 Review - FunkyKit

 

Today we'll be taking a closer look at the Shuttle XPC Nano NC02U5, and putting it through its paces to see just how functional it is around the home. A big thank you goes out to Shuttle for providing us with this NC02U5 unit, and here at FunkyKit...

If only I had a Shuttle nano XPC NC02U5 back 20 years ago, it would have solved so many of my computational needs at the time. Sure there’s less expansion options for you to play around with due to the NC02U5 being so small, but for what you get in a...

Super nice case

 

The Shuttle that this one is replacing was built in 2004, is a Socket A, and is still pushing XP up on the screen, all while running perfectly. It has been cleaned a few times, had the PS replaced, CPU uped to its max, mem, and video boosted, and I'd...

Compact, versatile, roomy inside, most importantly, Shuttle makes a great, great product.

Absolutely none!

High powered, stylish, portable

 

This is my new HTC Vive VR rig, built to be powerful and portable. I believe it will work quite nicely for that purpose. Hopefully the following bits of information will help should you purchase this yourself. Video Card: I managed to fit an MSI GTX...

* 500W power supply allows for powerful GPU options * Has lots of expansion options (4x3.5 hdd bay, M.2 slot, Mini PCI slot, eSATA port, 6xUSB 3.0) * Simple, stylish design * Very portable

* The hdd bay obstructs the path between power supply and most GPU power ports. I ended up removing the bay entirely (easy to unscrew), and then using velcro to secure the SSD.

Great Item. Up and running quick

 

I've purchased 6 of these for my company. Made a video rendering farm in our server room and got a whole lot of horsepower out of 3 PCs for about $1000 each [CPU was more than the Shuttle].

I've built dozens of clone PCs from individually purchasec components over the past 20 years for both personal and business use. Shuttle makes that process extremely easy. Besides the Shuttle item, all you really need is a HDD and a CPU and RAM and...

Really can't think of anything. Very well designed. Maybe you might need a bigger CPU fan if you got a super high power CPU, but you can't expect a huge fan to fit in this little guy. Included CPU fan has been enough fo me.

Easy to set up

 

Building tips: Make sure CPU fan mounts are flush with the motherboard, wiggle them to fit. Flash BIOS first before loading windows.

Very small system footprint. Almost silent. The Skylake i5 6600 CPU has about the GPU equivalent of a Geforce 730.

Need to exchange the current power supply to a 500 watt PS to use better graphics cards, Needed a display port to DVI converter for my monitor.

No complaints except for Video issue

 

It has worked reliably other than the Video issue

I had big problems when running with multiple monitors. Running with one monitor was for the most part OK but adding the second and especially third monitor to the mix caused all monitors to randomly flash. It was very annoying. I updated video drivers...

Easy build.

 

Build info: 1. Shuttle SH87R6 2. G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB, Model # F3-10666CL9D-16GBXL 3. i5-4590S 4. SAMSUNG 850 EVO 250GB, MZ-75E250B/AM

This was the easiest build I have completed so far. Works as advertised.(so far, 2 weeks in). I am happy with it and would recommend. - Looks decent - Easy build - Comes with Thermal paste - Comes with PSU - Fairly roomy inside - Cables are decently...

All the Cons are minor, but here they are: - Scratched face right out of the box - Doesn't come with the 2.5" HDD "adapter" so you can only mount 3.5" HDD's - Cooling fan on the CPU heat pipe is surprisingly loud - Lacks a card reader (SD, MicroSD)

Quality mini case/mobo.

 

I basically maxed out the parts from the supported list, 32gb ram i7-6700, geforce970, two ssd's (for raid 0). It runs very quiet and is pretty powerful. The evga 970 on the list fits great and also doesn't make much noise. I also bought the 500w PSU...

Small form factor, decent cooling, decent components on the supported list. Looks nice.

I purchased two at the same time, bios revision is not up to date to mange the raid controller and requires update right away. One of the two had a flaky motherboard that required RMA. Hopefully the replacement is fine and that's just a fluke. The hard...
