Shuttle XPC slim DH470 Barebone Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2021-01-11

By making use of the 10th generation Intel’s CPUs (max TDP of 65W), the DH470 is a powerful little machine with quite a bit of interfaces in order to be used for both home and also business applications. Its compact chassis does allow it to be installed in a lot of areas such as the back of the monitor via the included VESA mount, in a rack (two units at once) but can be also mounted vertically by using the PS02 stand. Where WiFi connection is not possible, the LTE adapter kit WWN03 makes connection to a mobile network possible and makes use of a nanoSIM card.
