Biostar iDEQ 300G MCE-I review
However, the Biostar iDEQ 300G has a bit of an identity crisis to tackle. The external SATA connection and clamshell design would indicate enthusiast leanings, but the rest of the chassis’ features are clearly aimed at a media centre PC. The incompatibility with our Extreme Edition processor was also a worry, although this is unlikely to be a chip most people would choose for a system intended for PVR and DVD-playing duties. But if its lurid green appearance fits your tastes, the 300G would make a decent system for your living room, and its price is comparable with Shuttle’s equivalent, the XPC SB81P (see issue 120, p236).
