I purchased this item as part of a home entertainment centre to replace my television set. Installing the components is easy and straightforward - I used a cheap G1610 2.6 GHz Celeron processor; 2 X 4GB Crucial memory and a 120GB Solid state hard drive together with a standalone 3TB hard drive for bulk storage purposes. Ubuntu 10.04LTS was used as an operating system and installed with no difficulty. There are two HDMI connections and I used one to connect a 27inch monitor and the other to my games console. The performance is more than adequate for my purposes but obviously there is scope for installing a much higher spec processor.

The Shuttle is totally silent in operation even under load and if you have a monitor with the correct mountings you can even mount the unit onto the rear of the monitor with the supplied brackets.

The first unit sent by Amazon was faulty , there was no video output and the cooling fans were running flat out under zero load. As usual with Amazon a replacement was sent out with no fuss and worked perfectly when I had reinstalled the components.

To control the system I added a Rii RT-MWK01 wireless mini keyboard and touchpad - this unit is 150mm long and perfect for the Shuttle used as an entertainment centre.

The whole system has been running now for about 6 weeks and there have been no problems or shortcomings. The Shuttle exceeds my expectations and appears to be well built - I would certainly recommend them to anybody needing a compact and low noise unit.

I have added an Intel i3 processor to this system along with a Crucial M4 SSD and 8GB of RAM. It boots quicker than my iPad and is an ideal micro desktop system. I have a 19" monitor with mounting holes on the back, so I used the additional mounting bracket that came with it and the system actually sits securely behind the screen. The result? A DIY all in one system but far more customizable.

The system doesn't have any optical drive so the drivers on CD that come in the box are as good as useless - instead you will need a second system to create an ISO image on USB, or simply download them from the Shuttle website. I used the website option and they work fine.

As you will see, the system has two USB3 ports on the back and four USB2 on the front. Ideal for connecting a secondary drive via USB (for storage) and avoid clogging up an internal SSD. The processor cooling fans are quiet and would not annoy you in any way, you can hear them very faintly, but that's normal. The system generates a little bit of heat on the outer case if on for a long period of time, but internally it's kept very cool.

Everything came in a small, well packaged box. Instructions are basic but if you are building a system then you will likely have some experience. It's a very small system so the bottom RAM slot can be tricky to install into, but not impossible :)

I cannot recommend this highly enough and it can be used in so many ways - connect to a TV, use as media solution etc etc. I use it as a normal desktop and it's brilliant.

Shuttle hits it out of the park! 1 July 2013
By P. Magwene - Published on Amazon.com
The Shuttle DS61 v1.1 is a great barebones platform for building small compact PCs. I've built a number of machines on this platform using a variety of Ivy Bridge CPUs from the Celeron G1610 to the i7-3770s. I agree with the other reviewers that the i3-3225 is the sweet spot in terms of CPUs for this machine.

For a complete recommended build check out my list here: http://www.amazon.com/lm/R1RKVZE5U6YWOH/ref=cm_pdp_lm_title_1

In my opinion the DS61 is a much more flexible platform than the slightly smaller Intel NUCs because: a) it allows you to use standard 2.5" drives as well as mSATA SSDs; b) it has a large number of I/O options (including serial ports for hardware hacking!); and c) it includes dual GbE ethernet ports (making it suitable for network appliances). This is an industrial quality platform with a sturdy but compact steel case, high quality capacitors, and flexible configuration possibilities.

Ubuntu 13.04 installs without a hitch on these machines, with all necessary drivers included on the standard install ISO. Debian 7.0 (Wheezy) required a separate download of the drivers for the Realtek 8111E NICs. Windows 7 requires the graphics, audio, and NIC drivers included on the DVD included with the machine.

Awesome little barebones system 19 Aug 2013
By A. Lyons - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Using this to run a small ESX system. I have an Intel Core i5-3470S and 8 GBS ram in this. Good performance for my purposes. This unit is a little bit bigger than my router! It runs cool, but its not silent. It doesn't bother me, but if you are using this in a home entertainment center, just be aware.

It was SO simple to get my components installed. Opening the case took two screws, and in about 10 mins I had installed processor, memory, SSD drive, the unit reassembled, and booted. It POSTed successfully on first try. If this is your first machine building, might be a bit of a challenge since everything is so small, but worked for me.

I can think of countless uses of this little box. It is intended for digital signage, but as a mini server, a second PC, router, etc. You are stuck with onboard graphics, so make sure you select a processor with a decent graphic performance onboard. It even comes with VESA mounting capabilities, so you could mount the unit behind your monitor or TV.

I had considered the Intel NUC but I was able to put together a higher performing system for less money, and this actually came with the power cord.

****Updated 11/16/13*****

Since I mentioned I am using this on ESXi, just a warning to people using it for a similar use. In both ESXi 5.1 and 5.5 I have struggled to get the PCI passthrough USB3 controller working. I am pretty sure its just an issue with this usb3 controller being unsupported. I have only tried with linux VMs so before I am sure, I will try windows. This is not a short coming necessarily of the hardware on the board, just more of a note for people trying to do the same. I know its crazy but I was trying to passthrough a usb3 Ethernet adapter to add more than 2 NICs to this little guy. I have it working with usb2 but not 3 and obviously USB2 is not truly fast enough for gigabit Ethernet. Another warning is the network interfaces are not supported out of the box for esx 5.5 but they are for 5.1.

An outstanding design 17 Sep 2013
By Kobuck - Published on Amazon.com

I purchased this to be a bookshelf server. This is a barebones box meaning you have to provide the Processor, Memory, and HD storage. My selections were an Intel i3-3225, Crucial SODIMM 2x8GB 1600 memory, and a WD 2.5" 320 GB Black HD. I also bought a Logitech K400r as a wireless keyboard/touchpad combo.

This box demonstrates that you don't have to accept low performance to get small size. A 3.3Ghz processor with 16GB of 1600 DDR3 memory and 320GB of disk storage all fit in a 6.5"x7.5" footprint. The unit is a sturdy metal case which fits on the shelf right next to my DSL modem/router. It took all of 15 minutes to install the CPU, Memory, and HD. Removing and replacing 3 philips head screws is all that's required to install. Thermal paste is provided in the kit. Only three external wires are attached power, Ethernet, and HDMI wire to the monitor. The keyboard is serviced by a small device plugged into a front usb port.

I installed Linux Fedora 19 as the OS and everything in this box is supported by the base F19 release. ( including the keyboard/touchpad to my great relief)

Uses the equivalent of a 60W light bulb at full load and less the 2W when idle. I'm completely impressed with the results.

Great Little Micro-PC! 5 Dec 2013
By Robert Baratono - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've got four of these units running as lightweight servers for various uses. Very impressed with the build quality of these things -- all metal construction and very well laid-out. They run cool and quiet. Installed an Intel i3-3225 CPU with 8 Gb of Crucial memory and a WD Black laptop 2.5" hard disk running Win7 Pro 64bit. I've had no stability or other issues with any of the four that I've built so far.

I'm running them "headless" (no KBD, monitor or mouse) and accessing via RDP. Works great. You can fit two side-by-side on a 1U 19" rack shelf with room to spare. You can configure them in the BIOS to power themselves back up automatically after a power outage. Dual Gb Ethernet ports.

Only takes a few minutes to build up a machine and CPU heatsink compound is included. All for a little over four hundred bucks a pop with CPU, disk and memory.

The only "con" that I can think of is that the supplied AC power "brick" is pretty big. And, don't plug your keyboard/mouse into the rear USB 3.0 ports during setup -- only the front USB 2.0 ports will work until you load the USB 3.0 drivers after the intial installation.

Makes a great Router 5 Mar 2014
By Some Diet - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bought this number to replace a dreadful Verizon provided router and I love it. I'm using an old Intel SSD I found, an i3 ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0093H8GQG/ ) and 8 GB of RAM ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006YG8X9Y/ ). I've seen other reviews that show a different i3 with better graphic support, but this is a headless system for me, so I figured I'd drop the price by a few bucks and get a little more speed.

There is only a couple of warnings I want to give and I figure I'd get them out of the way now. They are mentioned in a couple of other reviews but I will post it because it bears repeating:

1- DO NOT ENABLE FAST BOOT. Unless you hear from the company that this problem is fixed, do not enable it in the BIOS. The thing boots up plenty fast already. If you enable Fast Boot, it will not boot at all and you have to tear the heat sink off to reach the CMOS reset jumper, which is tucked away.

2- DO NOT USE THE USB 3.0 DURING INITIAL SETUP. It's tempting, they are the future, but hold off. Use the front USB 2.0 ports until you are in the OS and you know your OS supports USB 3.0. I gave myself a heart attack when I booted into my installer via 3.0 and the installer promptly told me my media no longer existed. I switched to USB 2.0, bam, worked awesome.

Once I got my OS installed and configured as a router I set it up in my basement. A speed test told me I was getting the same speed as before but my bandwidth was much better. 8 GBs of RAM is WAY too much for a router with 20 devices, but as far as cost/GB goes, it's the best bet. This device is easy to get into, RELIABLE(!!!!) and very low power. Despite being in a part of the house that has been freezing all winter long, the fans have been on high constantly. The noise is only noticeable if I'm standing next to the device and I'm hardly ever in that part of the basement so it is a non-issue for me.

I highly recommend this for a router build. This thing has been running nonstop for 2 months with zero glitches. I think I restarted it once when my Verizon connection dropped on the first day, but I was good after that.
