Default Shuttle SN41G2 Review...

[Shameless plug]

I have just posted my 9-page review of the Shuttle SN41G2 SFF system based upon the nForce2 platform...

Take a look and then fire some feedback my way! ( or both welcome )

Anything and Everything you wanted to know about the SN41G2 ( hopefully )

[/Shameless plug]

The review depth is impressive, but the length made me wonder if you were paid by the word Readability would have improved IMHO if that review was only 5-6 pages with the same friendly tone:

Overview/features
Physical Implementation
BIOS and Overclocking
Benchmarks
Benchmarks II
Conclusion

IMHO, there are enough "quick" reviews on this system already...Kyle and I decided to really dive into this review and see how the system fared in the end...

Regardless, thanks for being brave enough to provide feedback....I suppose the other 16 people couldn't muster the courage...



A funny aspect of the review...I actually do have ADHD...how do you think I felt writing the review!

Hopefully you felt proud and accomplished. Writing cogently is not a skill to take for granted, as might be seen from the typical post in forums such as these, and I'm including posts written by the knowledgeable and the well-educated.

When I taught college-level composition in the late 80s, perhaps half the students in my classes were unable to string together a coherent opinion/review for three pages, let alone the nine pages you wrote. Over half of the students I saw in college English were unable to work on tone and style, because proper grammar and solid content were too much a burden.

You have a good talent for writing. I admire your article enough to criticize it. I don't waste my time, I invest it.

I really like the going in depth of the hardware, pics of the system and the guts are my favorite. It is much better when you include objects for scale as well, like a ruler or something.

Thank you guys for taking the time to provide feedback...I honestly appreciate all of it as it helps me figure out what sort of features you guys want in a review...

You can get a good reference of the system's size in this image...compared with the MX700 base and the Logitech speakers...
