Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
optical drives, and AGP cards - optical drives, and AGP cards
Wed, December 24 2003 | 3:58AM | PermaLink Feedback?
SHUTTLE HAS been pushing small form factor PCs for years with its XPC line of barebones systems, but the infectious little cubes have their limitations. For starters, the cube form factor is largely incompatible with home entertainment system furniture. Shuttle's cubes are also designed to work with standard desktop hard disks, optical drives, and AGP cards, making them quite a bit bigger than systems using 2.5" laptop hard disks, slim optical drives, and integrated video. To cater to small form factor enthusiasts looking to build systems in something other than one of its XPC cubes, Shuttle has rolled out a tiny Flex ATX board called the FB54. Just two centimeters wider than VIA's diminutive EPIA Mini ITX boards, the FB54 should be compatible with a good number of Mini ITX cases. However, rather than relying on VIA's cool-but-slow C3 processor, the FB54 can accommodate a Pentium 4 processor on a 533MHz front-side bus. With support for processors as fast as the P4 3.06GHz-Hyper-Threading included-the FB54 could unlock all sorts of possibilities for home-theater PCs and other small form factor systems. Is the FB54 worth its extra girth over VIA's Mini ITX EPIA M10000? Read on to find out.
