[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi, I'm Rich Brown, Senior Editor for CNET.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the Shuttle XPC H7 5800. So this tiny little PC is actually a pretty fully featured gaming desktop. It comes with Intel Core S7 CPU, as well as a dual chip NVIDIA GeForce 285 GTX graphics card. Now, if you follow the small form factor gaming PC market, you'll know that those specs are sort of remarkable for a system of this size. Compared to its competitors from, say, Main Gear or Falcon Northwest, the Shuttle system is about three inches smaller in every direction. That said, we're sort of down on it because for that price, you end up paying about 29 hundred bucks. We don't think that price premium is worth it. Now, on the front, there's a DVD burner drive -- pretty typical -- as well as a spot for a media card reader or, if you wanted, a second hard drive. You can't have both. Behind this front panel door, you'll see a couple of USB ports, power, analog audio inputs, as well as eSATA port on the front. You don't usually see those on the front of systems. Now, around back, it's pretty simple, also. You have a pair of DVI ports by way of the graphics card, another set of audio outputs, USB and networking, as well as two eSATA ports, as well as eSATA power port, if you need to connect a hard drive that needs an internal power connection. Now, once we go inside the case, you can see that Shuttle pretty much used up all available space inside the system. The dual slot GeForce card takes up both expansion slots. The DVD drive sits up top. There's a Blu-ray drive option, if you want, for that as well. And if you look deep into the system, you'll see a hard drive. And as we said, you can add a second hard drive, an e-card reader, or even solid-state drives are an option. Now, one other feature we should probably mention is that this is a custom power supply for this system. It's 500 watts, and it's enough to power pretty much all of the available components. We also like the PSU because it's 80-plus certified. That means it's relatively power efficient, and you know, you don't normally associate power efficiency with a gaming PC. So we give shuttle credit for that. So for all the cool features of this system, we actually have one other gripe. Shuttle made the big mistake of putting 32-bit Vista in here, but also including six gigs of memory. Now, 32-bit Vista can only use up to four gigs, so you're kind of wasting two gigs or RAM. So between that problem and the expensive price tag, we really can't recommend this system too much. The only way we can justify it is if you really, really want a super small gaming PC. So I'm Rich Brown, and that's the Shuttle XPC H7 5800. ^M00:02:25 [ Music ]
