Shuttle SP-45H7

2. The package

The Shuttle SP45H7 costs around $354 in the U.S. and much more in Europe (~€420) as found in several online stores.

Below you can see the retail box.

Everything inside is well packaged and secured:

The box includes:

  • The PC case
  • A multi language XPC Installation Guide(En, De, Fr, Es, TC, Jp)
  • A XPC 32/64bit Driver CDROM for Windows XP/Vista
  • Data cables: 1x floppy, 1x PATA, 2x SATA (PATA/SATA pre installed)
  • A Power Cord
  • Screws, Heatsink Compound

Two SATA and one IDE cables are pre-installed. The motherboard has also one more spare SATA channel in case you need it. The total weight of the system is just 3.63Kg, without any HDD or optical drives installed. Shuttle has made a good job in the design and the materials used for the case, contributing to an overall stylish and solid look.

Shuttle has added an eSATA port on the front panel, among with two USB ports and the mic/headphone jacks. You will also find the power button, two bays for 3.5" optical disc drives and one floppy drive.

The reset button is small and cannot be accessed easily placed on the right side of the front panel.

Note that the available ports are hidden and the covering panel can be easily opened with a single touch.

At the rear side we find the usual input/outputs. The case has thumb type screws for easy handling. The Shuttle I.C.E. cooling system includes rubber at mounting screws to absorb shocks and noise. Two expansion slots for PCI and PCI-e cards are also available there.

The rear panel offers:

  • 4x USB 2.0
  • Firewire (6 pin)
  • GigaBit LAN (RJ45)
  • 2x External Serial ATA Hotplug (eSATA)
  • 8-ch Audio line-out (2x rear/front, bass/center, surround/back)
  • Audio Line-in
  • Digital Audio: optical S/PDIF output
  • Clear CMOS button

Both PS2 mouse/keyboard jacks are missing, meaning all your devices should be connected to the available USB ports - which could be more by the way, provided that the motherboard supports them. Other than that we don't find anything missing.

There are not options for WiFi or BT connections, but you can use the appropriate USB dongles for that purpose.
