    Re: Shuttle XPC Cube SZ270R9 Mini-PC barebone released

    Probably the best part of £700 without GPU, memory or storage once you put an i7 in it - why would anyone buy this? SFF systems are great, and I'm sure there's some people who like the look, but that price premium for outdated hardware is absurd

    Re: Shuttle XPC Cube SZ270R9 Mini-PC barebone released

    seems and odd option for shuttle to go with rgb lighting ?... most shuttle buyers (and there aint many of them, less every time someone buys one .... because they never buy a second one) buy it because they don't want a huge box (computer) to be seen ?
    so who wants to buy a small rgb box that cant be hidden with cooling problems?

    I should also add that last time I had one of these it had a dvd and a floppy drive in it .... making manufacture of air flow better ... and yet ,
    I wouldn't buy this

    I would buy another if they were still affordable. I remember my old SN45G fondly - bit of a bargain with a case, mobo, PSU, heatsink and fan for less than reasonable equivalent components separately. That was 2003 mind...

    I had a few my self and they were awesome and my SD37P2 lasted nearly 5 years!! However,once they started cost cutting and moving to steel chassis it was a bit off-putting.
