Battle of the Minis: Soltek vs. Shuttle

The Challenge: 200 W On The Secondary

Weakness: Very Noisy

During the lab test, which stretched over a 14-day period, we soon realized that the Soltek system was noisier than the Shuttle under the circumstances described above. There is no question that this mini system would be out of place in a quiet office environment.

Our outrageously expensive meter is not wrong: the noise level of the Soltek exceeds 50 dB when the fans are operating at full speed.
