|A PC as small as a box for shoes|
This tiny case contains a mainboard and makes it possible to setup an extremly compact PC.
If you want design a small PC, then SV25 is suitable for you. (...) The connectivity is very good: serial and parallel interfaces, four USB connectors - two of them at the front, two firewire, TV out, LAN and VGA. SV25 has an innovative and stylish design, made from aluminum and has even a PCI slot, you can insert an additional card like e.g. modem or graphics.

PCPlus U.K.: We've seen full towers that offer less...

|Fed up with huge beige boxes? Try this tiny silver one instead...|
(...) This case is really quite tiny (...) However, just because the case is small, it doens't mean the system is lacking in features. In fact, it's quite the opposite. (...) We've seen full towers that offer less. (...) It is obvious that a lot of thought has been put into the SV25's design, something lacking from some towers. (...) it could easily become a file server or MP3 jukebox tucked away under the stairs.
Value for money: 8
Overall: 9 out of 10
IT Reviews U.K.: It's hard to beat this tiny desktop system...

|Tulip C3 Review (with SV25): |
(...) one look at the rear panel shows what really matters - connectivity. Despite its small size the C3 offers more ports than you'll ever see on a normal sized desktop - mouse, keyboard, serial, VGA, S-Video, parallel, composite video, dual 1394 FireWire, LAN, audio in, audio out - the list is huge. These are all handled by the Shuttle FV24 motherboard which uses VIA's ProSavage PL133 chipset and also supports a single PCI slot. (...) For sheer cuteness it's hard to beat this tiny desktop system.
DinoXPC Italy: A beautiful "piece of art"

Final Rating: 8/10
Shuttle SV25 MiniPC is a beautiful "piece of art" to be put on the top of your desk (and not hidden as a common pc!). It offers, as integrated system, everything you need! USB ports, firewire IEEE1394, LAN, Audio, TV, VGA etc ... and it sports a free PCI slot too, that could be useful if we intend to install an internal board (like a 3D PCI accelerator), or other.
(...) it has also been very intelligent to place two Dimm SDR slots. A single slot, in fact, could be a big limit.
Pros: Absolute compatibility with external peripherals, Two SDR Dimm slots, Very easy to work inside the chassis, Perfect integration of a multitude of components, Good "how to deal with installation" manual, Normal performances, There are Usb and Audio ports either in the front and back of the case, Very small case, Look, Adequate bios, Adequate price
Sweclocker.com Sweden: Editor's Choice Award

Rating 4 out of 5
The unit is ideal for todays professional workstations, and when combined with a small and clear TFT, it's the given choice. The product can offer all functions that you might need, except for 3D-games, but that can be fixed with a PCI-card for graphics, if you have that need.
