Down on Shuttle's G4 1800 Media Center PC

Peter Rojas

So there are a few basic things you don't want to have happen when you send a PC out to be reviewed. Like have it freeze up everytime someone puts a CD in it (besides, isn't that such a mid-Nineties kind of bug?). You'd think that Shuttle would know better than to send out a lemon, but  Rob Pegoraro checked out their XPC G4 6100M Media Center PC, and while he liked the small form factor, he encountered a few other problems, like that one of its memory card slots wouldn't work because a cable had come loose inside, a headphones jack that delivered a constant stream of buzz and static, a wireless keyboard and mouse that continually stopped working, and a misprinted number for tech support.
