Shuttle XPC P2 2700 review: Shuttle XPC P2 2700

Shuttle supports the XPC P2 2700 with a basic one-year parts-and-labor warranty with limited telephone support hours (12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday), although the phone number is toll-free. It also includes a recovery disk, and the online support features step-by-step instructions for using it. The rest of the Web support includes a FAQ and product-return information. It's all relatively easy to understand, but we wish Shuttle had vendor-specific links to driver downloads and, in general, provided more robust resources.
