2. Unboxing, DH110 details
The Shuttle's official price for the DΗ110 is 240 EUR. Below you see the package of the device, which is not much different from what we have seen with the company's products.
At the side, basic product information is listed:
The package includes the main PC chassis along with the rest of the accessories:
- The DH110 box
- A Multi-language user guide (EN, DE, FR, ES, JP, KR, SC, TC)
- A VESA mount for 75/100mm standard (two metal brackets)
- Four thumbscrews M3 x 5 mm (screws together VESA mount and PC)
- Four screws M4 x 10 mm (to affix VESA mount on the PC)
- Four screws M3 x 4 mm (to mount a 2.5" storage device into the bay)
- A Driver DVD (Windows 64-bit)
- A Serial ATA cable for 2.5" drive including power cable
- An External 90W power adapter with power cord
- A Protection cap for CPU socket (do not use if heat-pipe or fan is mounted)
- A Heatsink compound
Shuttle is also selling a universal WLAN-ac / Bluetooth Combo Kit with M.2 card (Realtek RTL8821AE) - a wireless LAN kit consisting of a M.2-2230 card, two antennas and appropriate cables. The WLN-M is intended to add wireless LAN functionality according to IEEE 802.11n/ac at 2.4 / 5 GHz. At the same time, his combo device also supports Bluetooth 4.0. Unfortunately, the package you see below will cost you some additional 38 EUR:
In order to get the box running you will need to install an Intel Socket 1151 processor, SO-DIMM DDR3 memory rated at 1.35V (be careful), a 2.5" HDD/SSD drive and Windows /Linux OS.. For our tests, we used a 16GB (2x8GB) CT2KIT102464BF160B memory kit (~80 EUR) and a BX200 960GB SSD (~303 Euro), both kindly provided by Crucial. Of course, you can save some cost by adding a smaller SSD or even a HDD. For instance, a Crucial BX200 240GB SSD costs about 82 EUR.
One of the advantages of the DH110 is its compact size. Measuring at just 190 x 165 x 43 mm (1.35 liter), it can be easily "hidden" attached to the rear side of a 24" LCD monitor. With the processor, memory and an SSD installed, the all-metal system weighs 2.1kg.
As you see below, ventilation holes in both sides of the device help the system remain cool while running 24/7:
The front panel includes a microphone input, an Audio Line-out (headphone), 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, an SD card reader ( SD, SDHC and SDXC ), the Power button, a power LED (blue) and an HDD LED (yellow)
At the rear side there is a DisplayPort (DP) v1.20 and a full sized HDMI v1.4 port. You can also use the 1x D-Sub VGA connector (accessory PVG01), 2x USB3.0, 1x eSATA/USB2.0 combo port, 2x Gigabit Lan, 2x RS232 serial ports, 9-pin D-Sub (5/12V, 1x RS422/RS485) and a DC-input (supports 12V±5% or 19V±5%). In addition, you find a connector for external power button / clear CMOS (4-pin connector 2.54 mm pitch) and 5V DC voltage, 1x PS/2 combo port to connect a keyboard or a mouse, 2x perforation to attach optional Wireless LAN antennas and 2x holes for Kensington Locks:
