Dyson DC20 Stowaway


This is a pull along unit, however unlike most other cleaners on that type this still packs enough punch to actually lift a fitted carpet and therefore the dirt and dust has no chance.

click to enlarge To begin with this is no ordinary pull along cleaner. As you might expect it is not that light at close to ten kilos. Giving measurements is not easy as although it is a basic rectangle I can only give the maximum it is 24cm from...

If planning to put a high performance Video card like a GTX 260 which is the one that i got, be prepared to modify the cover on the videocard or you have to get an extension for the motherboard plug. Try to get a 9.5 video card like an Radeon HD 4870.

This product is really great. My processor and ram including video card and HDD were recognized without a problem. Cable routing and cleanness of the case inside was really neat as well. PS is great and can handle high end graphics card. Very satisfied

Solid performer


The major rub I think is the layout of the PCIe slots. You can add a dual slot card such as the 4870 (and the 450W PSU can handle it) but it'll stress things to the max. Since I bought two cases, re-using a old 512MB 4870 card and bought a new 4770,...

Small formfactor with smart layout and plenty of 'room' for essential hardware, such as 2-3 HDDs, 1 2.5" bay (can be used for hard drive, hense 2-3), one 3.5" drive bay and two PCIe slots. The ability to crossfire

Can only crossfire singleslot cards and even dual slot cards is a pain to get it. Silly layout of PCI slots, since you end up having to place the cards with the fans pointing inwards to the case, rather than outwards, making the housing with the fans...

Excellent Design


After much experimentation, I ended up with EVGA 512-P3-N973-TR GeForce 9800 GT and the EVGA 256-P2-N429-LR GeForce 7200GS.

Typical Shuttle -- quality design and construction

Hard to fit two quiet video cards with one that has decent game performance. I need two cards to support three monitors for regular/work use. I really wanted to go passively cooled but there's no way to do that with this case because all the performant...

Excellent daily use head for hardwood floors!


I bought this head thinking I would use it under beds and furniture, but I have found that it works so incredible on my hardwood, tile and low pile carpets that I use it as my primary head. The low profile is awesome to fit under cabinets. etc...not...

Not too bad


It really did a great job getting udner the bed, dresser, etc. I do wish there was some way to get agitator brushes on the piece but I guess not.

2nd hand bargain


Due to someones lack of typical maintenance, (cleaning filters), I purchased a bargain under performing dyson, normally out of my price range. With a tiny bit of TLC, I have a fantastic, rugged vacuum that substantially out performs anything I've had...
