The External Features

One thing I like about Shuttle's SFF PC's are that the face of the machine is modest. We've seen a few other SFF PC's in the PCSTATS test labs that show off a lot of gimmicks. Plain and simple computers stand the test of time better, and don't look dated a few years down the road... remember those bondai blue iMac's?

On the front of the Shuttle XPC SG33G50 are three buttons; a silver one at top to eject the optical drive, the middle right is the power button and the middle left is the reset switch. Hidden under a flap near the middle of the bezel is the open 3-1/2" drive bay, along the bottom are the front panel jacks. Hidden behind a flap are the microphone/headphone jacks, two USB 2.0 slots and a mini IEEE 1394 port. For good measure, Shuttle indicates that the SG33G50 is dts and HDMI compatible.

There's nothing too special about either side of the Shuttle XPC SG33G50, just a couple air vents that should not be blocked, If you're using a PCI Express x16 based videocard, this goes doubly so. Leave a couple inches free space next to the left side panel in particular for ventilation. That way the videocard can get fresh cool air.

At the back of the Shuttle XPC SG33G50 is where all the action happens!
