Shuttle’s latest addition to its range of small form factor computers, has been given the seal of approval by T-Break, the Middle-East’s coolest source of PC news and reviews.
T-Break reviewers found that the XPC SD11G5 packs all the features of a modern desktop computer, in a chassis one-third the size, "Based on the 915GM+ICH6M chipset, the XPC SD11G5 supports almost all of the new technologies such as SATA, DDR2 and PCI Express... For audio, Shuttle uses Creative's SoundBlaster Live! 24 bit onboard audio solution providing 7.1 output with SPDIF connectivity which is much better than your standard AC97 codec."

T-Break reviews concluded, " [W]e must say that we're impressed with the XPC SD11G5. It runs cool, doesn't make a lot of noise and produces good numbers- especially in gaming."
