“Shuttle’s ultra-compact X200 has power-efficient hardware, a small physical footprint, and wireless connectivity – important factors for HTPCs these days. But has Shuttle sacrificed functionality in favor of space-saving design?”

Shuttle’s new X200 HTPC system is tiny at 11.76′ X 8.27′ X 2.1′, as [H]ard|OCP puts it “roughly the size of a single package of printer paper“. While Shuttle did pack a fair amount of power into the system, [H] found it lacking in some areas, especially it’s lack of an HD tuner, and the fact you can’t even get one in afterwards. As well, they really liked the lack of bloatware, but would have preferred a fully installed OS.
