I've built two Shuttles...wondering when (if) I'll build a third.
They're not the company they used to be, and I'm glad for their success, but I've gotten the general feeling that their Barebones side of things (especially the support) has suffered as they've ramped up their system sales.
That aside, personally, the thought of a bare bones Core2Duo shuttle makes me giddy, the thought of the SD37P2 doesn't appeal to me though.
First of all, I'd rather get a 965 chipset designed for C2D rather than a rehashed 975X.
Second, I have issues with the P2 chasis in the fact that it omits one of the things that made the P chasis so great. Toolless (well, almost completely) installation work. At least as far as all the drives are concerned, they were tooless, which was great considering that you had to move the drives around in order to get at anything else.
After getting that on the P1, the bolt on trays look kind of tacky and 80s to me. :S
Not having the integrated card reader is also a bumber for me. I use tha ton my SN25P more than I would've guess. It's super convenient...and it didnt take up the 3.5" slot, which I used for my primary HDD.
Most importantly though is the two small HDD zone fans (40mm I believe). The TR's general stance proved right in that case. One of them started to go about 9 months in, and is currently making an annoying rattling noise. I'm shopping for a replacement as we speak.
