The ultra-compact Shuttle Slim-PC Barebone XG41 is the ideal basis of your new slim-line nettop PC. Together with a socket 775 processor, it offers significantly higher CPU performance than other nettop PCs. XG41 comes up with DVI and HDMI video outputs, dual Gigabit LAN ports and dual COM ports. It also packs support for standard DDR3 memory, 2.5 inch hard disk and slimline optical drive. It also scores with an elegant design with coated surfaces and mirrored drive doors. Measuring merely 3 liters in volume, around a tenth of the size of a traditional tower desktop PC, it is designed to provide the perfect balance between aesthetic sensibility and daily computing demands for homes and offices.

  • newegg Compact and Clean Design XG 41 shines in a clean and modern appearance. The optical drive and front panel connectors are elegantly concealed behind drive doors to provide maximum protection. This tiny tot barely stands 7.3 cm in height with a volume of 3.5 litres.
  • newegg Intel Socket T (LGA 775) CPUs Support (Maximum TDP of 65W) With the Shuttle XG41 support for Socket T (LGA 775) processors, choose the processor from Celeron to Core 2 to match your budget and performance needs. Plus, the system memory can be installed according to individual needs up to a maximum capacity of 8GB DDR3 memory.
  • newegg Dual Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity Shuttle applies Gigabit LAN performance to their Mini-PCs and XG41 even supports two of them. Dual networking allows the computer to connect to a single network using two cables at once with an appropriate switch (teaming mode with load balancing or failover function) or to two different networks depending on the needs of the user.
  • newegg Dual View Technology with HDMI and DVI Dual View technology offers multiple display support on up to two separate monitors. This helps to improve on productivity by allowing for spreading multiple windows across two monitors while working with them simultaneously. XG41 features two video outputs: HDMI and DVI-I.
  • newegg Great Connectivity On the front, elegantly hidden from view behind drive doors, the panel reveals two USB 2.0 ports for external drives, MP3 players etc. There are also two 3.5mm jacks for headphone and microphone. In addition, the back panel offers a wide range of I/O connectivity as well.
  • newegg Heat Pipe Cooling XG41 features a highly efficient heat pipe cooling. A heat pipe is a hollow tube containing a heat transfer liquid. As the liquid evaporates, it carries heat to the cool end, where it condenses and then returns to the hot end. Heat pipes thus have a much higher effective thermal conductivity than solid materials. Please keep the vent holes clear of obstructions.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

Pros: Plugged in the hard drive, plugged in the DVD drive fired it up and all was good. Win 7 loaded with no problems, installed included drivers and the ethernet and audio came to life. Had to adjust the graphics ratio for my 55" TV but the Intel Graphics program accomplished this without issue. I am very pleased! As many others have stated, very quiet.

Cons: Getting the forward heatsink screws to seat took a little more pressure then I like to apply to a motherboard, but they snapped into place and all was well. As stated by others, the DVD door is a little flimsy and I may just leave it off, doesn't look bad without it.

Other Thoughts: I am using this in an HTPC setup with the following:

E6550 Dual Core
500 GB Seagate ST95005620AS
4G of GSkill F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS memory
Silicon Dust HD Homerun Prime 3 Tuner
Rosewill Remote (RRC-126RT)

All seems to work well. With Windows Media Center as the interface: HD video through the Homerun Prime looks very good, DVD's play fine, music and ripped DVD's from my local server all play without issue. Had a little issue getting Netflix to work but searched the error codes and resolved in short order (not a result of the Shuttle). Appears to be a very fine little PC.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little work machine

Pros: Dead Silent,
Dual Gigabit Lan,
Ample amount of USB Ports,
did I mention its super slient?

Cons: Not much expansion room (see Tiny above),
Intel Graphics (for Work though it fine),
External Power Brick (see Tiny Above again)

Other Thoughts: I love this thing. Its small, and super quiet (as in you need to look at the LED to tell its on (or the screen :) It perfect for a little Work Machine, since I'm always changing my main rig and reinstalling it I needed a computer just to have my work stuff and settings that didn't change every 3 months. I was using a custom built M-atx system that sat in my basement for the last couple of years but working in Photoshop got annoying as the speed just wasn't there. I picked this up on a good deal (not here) and boom this thing fit the bill nicely. Its kinda tight inside for example if you use the CD tray don't expect to use memory with rising heatspreaders and don't expect ot put anytthing more than 1 to 2 2.5" drives or 1 2.5" and 1 slim CD/DVD drive.

Intel E8400 3.0GHz (on Shuttle's support list)
4Gigs Patriot 1333 DDR3 (not on Shuttle's support list but works perfectly)
64GB Sandforce Boot Drive
1TB Hitachi 2.5" drive
DVD player is external

2 out of 5 eggsSo far, not so good

Pros: Small size, very quiet fan operation, very reasonable cost, compatible with LGA775 CPU's, HDMI already on the motherboard, and it comes with the screws and hardware you need in the box. This is perfect for a home theater PC, or any PC requirement that does not require high end gaming graphics power. You can also adjust the brightness of the blue power LED on the front in the BIOS settings. Overall this was a very quick and simple PC build.

Cons: Currently unusable. I will need to RMA this today due to a faulty heat sink. Core temps were in mid 50's C running JUST the BIOS after reseating, cleaning and reapplying thermal paste three times. After installing Window's 7 64-bit OS, I ran Prime95 the CPU core temps were over 75 C (and still rising) in under three minutes at 100% CPU load and were idling in the 60 C range with an E6700 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo (running idle at 1.6 GHz). By comparison, my home PC (Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz) idles at the low 20's C and after 15 minutes of running Prime95, the max Core Temp was 45/44 C. Granted, I lapped my heat sink on my home PC, but when I overclocked my home PC from 2.4 GHz up to 3.1 GHz, I still barely reached 60 C after hours of stress testing. I almost lapped my Shuttle heat sink, but decided against it as it would probably void my RMA. Also, the two heat sink posts in the rear require a little patience to get seated correctly.

Other Thoughts: I will repost my Pros/Cons when I receive my replacement. A coworker has this same Shuttle PC and loves it, and I'm pretty sure that once I receive my replacement I'll come back and change my rating to 5 stars. Besides the heat sync, I'm impressed.

The PC was simple to put together and has pretty much everything you need besides a 2.5" slimline DVD (be careful, not all slimline DVD players fit), a hard drive and RAM.

Don't forget to use the DRIVER CD that comes with the Shuttle. I didn't think about this until after I'd had problems and had to manually locate and install new LAN drivers from the web.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent HTPC

Pros: This is an excellent HTPC. External power supply and heat pipe cooling without fan are great idea. There are two SATA ports available. My system has 64GB SSD (OS/application) plus 750MB HDD (data/media).

+ Very low noise level; Silent during power saving mode (OS dependency)
+ Good built quality and easy to assemble
+ Small form factor and simple design
+ Two SATA ports available for multi-disk configuration (1 SSD + 1 HDD)
+ Lots of connectivity options, plenty of USB ports (front/back)

Cons: These are good to have but not critical.

- No USB3.0 port
- No wifi/bluetooth (you can buy small USB wifi)
- No room to add dedicated video card

Other Thoughts: I like the design. It's simple and elegant.
If you're looking for a silent HTPC, this won't disappoint you.
It would be nice to have wifi/bluetooth capabilities but you can buy USB wifi/bluetooth. I bought a tiny USB wifi for $15 and put it front USB port.
There are enough USB ports on the back to connect external HDDs if you want.
For the price, I am very satisfied with my purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Product

Pros: The layout of this case and motherboard made the build pretty straight forward and simple. I was able to get everything up and running with very few bumps in the road.

Cons: My only critiques, as I am very pleased with this system, are the following;
The front doors are way too flimsy and cheapens an otherwise fantastic case.
The opening for the compact cd/dvd drive was a little bent causing the drive door to stick. This was easy enough to fix but of course I discovered this after closing the case and getting ready to begin my Windows install...

Other Thoughts: I absolutely recommend the XG41. It's definitely not fit for gaming due to integrated graphics but I was still able to build a pretty powerful box. Perfect HTPC. Cool, Quite, and built in HDMI.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Compact PC

Pros: - Very easy to install. It started Windows 7 right away from a hard disk pulled from another installation. I just have to re-install the network and video driver to get optimum configuration.
- Support 3 SATA 2.5" HDD or 2 SATA 2.5" HDD and 1 Slim SATA internal DVD drive.
- Compact Size
- Run Silent (almost no noise) and Cool (plugged in 24/7)
- My set up is (CPU, RAM, HDD, Keyboard + Mouse are all you need):
Core 2 Duo E6600,
WD Blue 2.5", 250 GB,
4 GB Ram,
- As advertised Full HD streaming is OK
- Following is my WEI with Windows 7 Ultimate
4.5 : CPU
5.1 : Memory
3.9 : Graphics
3.5 : Gaming Graphics
5.6 : Hard Disk

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Somebody in the reviews mentioned that it hangs with a Core 2 Quad. It's normal as the Core 2 Quad CPU is not supported. Maximum supported is a Core 2 Duo 65W CPU, a Core 2 Quad although a LGA775 is 95W thus not supported.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it should

Pros: Extremely compact case that is well thought out. The cooling mechanism makes the computer virtually silent. I used an Intel E6500 cpu and Kingston KVR1066D3N7K2/4G. The system booted flawlessly. I installed openelec and had xbmc reading from a vortexbox server in about three minutes. The hmdi port worked from the start with openelec.

Cons: none, it does exactly what I built it for.

Other Thoughts: if I add an optical drive and a wireless card to the system, it would make a respectable desktop.

3 out of 5 eggsNice small computer

Pros: Nice and small, seems to have all the inputs I need. Was going to use it with the HDMI to connect to TV setup.

Cons: Used a Core 2 Quad and 2GB of ddr3 and the computer didn't post. Not sure what is wrong with it. Sending back to Newegg for a replacement. Hopefully the next one will work better.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Mighty Mini!!

Pros: small size (3"x8"x10"), is quiet w. two 2" fans, minimalist design, mini pcie-good for built-in Bluetooth/wireless,excellent graphics chipset,fan speed adjustable in bios,power supply is external

Cons: *no AHCI option-IDE only, *could use an external esata or USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: *Even with no ACHI setting i have 230MBps read/write with a Vertex 3 max iops edition(system) and 110MBps read/write with a Vertex 2 external ,*3 sata ports on mb enabled me to add external port. I love this machine! I used a Quad Core 2 Q9550S processor(65w), 8 Gigs Kingston ddr3 memory, and a Sony Optiarc ODD. I also added the Habey mini pcie chip to have built-in Bluetooth/wireless. There are two punchouts for antennas-no mod needed.There is only room for 1 drive inside but external or NAS is great solution. I also added a Belkin 4 port powered hub with no problems.The purpose of this build was to have a small,super silent,low-power mach. for regular comp activities/audiophile music with the exception of gaming. A usb feeds a DAC unit which feeds powered near field monitors(speakrs). Remember, this is all done with a 90 w ext supply. Will attempt silent nirvana w. liquid cool and zero fan noise.
