5 out of 5 eggsPerfect case for an all-in-one type build

Pros: Small and quiet system that can be attached to back of vesa compatible monitors.

Room on the bottom side of the case for a 2.5 inch hdd. Also room for a slim optical drive or another another hdd or ssd. If you chose another hdd/ssd you'll need an sata power cable Y-splitter to power the 2nd hdd/ssd. I mounted the ssd on the optical bracket but had to velco the bracket to the chassis.

The front panel usb cable had to be re-routed to the other side to reach the motherboard plug.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsAIO Build

Pros: I selected this case to mount to the back of a monitor. It comes with a vesa adapter which can be attached to the vesa points on the back of a monitor.

The case is thoughtfully designed and well made. The top and bottom can be removed with by removing a single screw in each. The bottom, under the motherboard, is designed for a 2.5 inch hdd and a thin optical drive. I substituted a sdd drive in place of the optical drive. This substitution required a Y sata power cable splitter to power both devices. The sdd attached to the optical tray but I needed to use velco to attach the optical tray to the case.

The front panel cable for the usb 2.0 dual sockets was too short the reach across the motherboad to the header plug. So I unsnapped the front panel and routed the cable out the opposite side.

The power cables have to be run across the gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI motherboard. The sata sockets are close to the power sockets as are the front-panel header cables, so there are a lot of cables to arrange in a small space.

I used the stock i5-4570s cooler and fan. I runs whisper quit and keeps the 65W cpu cool.

A variety of screws were provided for the motherboard, vesa mounts, hdd, and sdd.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy witht his case

Pros: Very simple layout; for a small case very very easy access; the access bay for the drive is well designed.

Cons: The usb cable to the header for usb is a bit tight on the motherboard I use; I seen a couple of mother boads where the usb header would not reach (you want a motherboard that places the usb headers towards the front or mid way). Adding another inch to the cable would have made things a bit simpler.
-
The capacitors (see the image on neweg) are decent but not top of the line. Not sure it matters at these wattages but worth mentioning.
-
Bit pricey for what it is but the only alternative I've seen is the asus case and a friend had a miserable time with that one (though it appears to have a higher quality and more efficient psu)

Other Thoughts: Built a small system with asrock b75m itx motherboard; g1610; g.skill F3-10600CL9D-4GBPK; crucial m4; windows 7; basically web browsing for my sister. The g1610 is actually not bad; the entier system uses around 36 watts; 50 watts peak (max gpu/cpu). with the ssd it boots pretty quick - quicker than my i7 off a hard drive. I think I paid $30 for the g1610 (also micro centers had the g1620 for $33). The g1610 is ivy bridge gpu core (haswel celeron were not yet available but should be early 2014). It runs incredibly cool and low power. highly recommended unless you need more cpu cycles (amd solution has faster graphics but use more power and run hotter).

5 out of 5 eggsI really like this thing.

Pros: The build quality on this is remarkably good for something made of steel and plastic. The steel is thicker and the plastic studier then you would expect. It has exactly the correct amount of power connectors and wire slack to hook up the mobo, a 2.5" HDD/SSD, and a slimline dvd-rom drive without any issues. The Intel stock CPU heatsink fits nicely. Don't even think about using the PCI-E slot for anything though, there is not enough room and the power supply isn't suited for the extra power draw. Once you get everything together, it looks pretty nice. I have mine on it's side. You can remove the unused plastic piece for the mount, since you only need one at a time.

Cons: This is strictly for home theatre PCs or small personal servers. If you keep that in mind going in, it does it's job extremely well and there are very few cons.

Other Thoughts: I used one of these in a small game server build, and I'm quite pleased with the results. You can get a board that supports Ivy bridge CPUs, drop a high clock i3 in there, and you've got a pretty decent setup. A small, quiet, inconspicuous black box with just a power cable and ethernet sticking out the back. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat ITX case, some limitations

Pros: Compact, quiet, external power brick (may be a con for some). Uses laptop style slim cd/dvd bay (may also be a con for others).

Cons: Depending on the positioning of the CPU socket on the motherboard, you may need to use something other than the stock heatsink. I've had issues with some boards because of this -- not a big deal, but something to watch out for.

Also, only has one 2.5" HDD bay. I ended up using a slim cd -> hdd converter to get around this, but for the price I wish in win included something like that already.

Other Thoughts: I like these models enough to have bought four for different uses (one for soho router w/ GA-C1007UN-D dual nic board), two misc linux toys, and a dedicated linux workstation for my parents. I was very happy to see newegg restocked them!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC case

Pros: The size is nice for an HTPC and the external power brick means the only fan in my setup is the CPU fan. The lights are not overly bright.

Cons: It's a just a little difficult to fish the power and SATA cables to the underside of the case where you mount the HDD and OD.

Other Thoughts: It isn't clear from the description but it comes with a slim power connection. Unlike a normal desktop you shouldn't need a separate adapter when using a laptop OD. There is a combined normal sized and small SATA power cable so you just route that to the bottom and have power for both the HDD and OD.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, small case

Pros: - Plenty of ventilation
- No fans
- Supplies enough power for a pretty beefy CPU and RAM

Cons: - No front panel usb3 (if you care about that)
- 'Legs' when flat or vertical are somewhat unstable and the case screw casing sticks up to much for it to be placed horizontal without using the legs (if it was detached I would worry it would scratch the surface of the media furniture). On the other hand that means more ventilation via the grills in the bottom I suppose. I store mine horizontally and out of sight though.
- Only fits slim cdrom (irrelevant for me)
- No IR 'area' for the CIR header receiver (assuming your board has one)
- Only one full size and mini sata power cable (also irrelevant for me)
- I wish opening the case was tool-less, but it fits pretty tight so I guess you could do without the screws anyway.
- Would be nice if the case extended out a little bit to support a VFD/LCD -- the only reason I can think of I would want to have the thing visible.
- Would also be nice if the sata power cables were detachable. The case/board is pretty cramped as it is.

Other Thoughts: I had some real trouble finding a HTPC case designed for *just* mini ITX -- it was between this one and a Lian Li (that was out of stock). I was worried the cpu I bought would suck too much power to use this case's psu, but it seems to be ok so far and I do all my decoding at the client side. The only device I really have attached is an mSATA drive directly to the board (though I did have a full size cdrom connected for the initial build). If your worried about the clearance using the stock Intel cpu fan, fear not. The grill on the top of the case extends up enough. For me the most important thing was for it to be small and have plenty of ventilation -- this fits the bill perfectly. All and all the case is no frills but the construction seems to be pretty good. Given the size of the case it seems a little expensive, but the Lian Li I was looking out was nearly 2x the price.

4 out of 5 eggsPower Supply

Pros: I like the looks of this case but I think a case like this would be good with a Thin Mini-ITX motherboard that uses an external 19v Power Brick. That would use even less wires. There are some Thin Mini-Itx motherboards, but not many good cases for them.

Cons: Dont see where you would put the slim DVD drive.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat mini case....

Pros: 1. Small form factor with external power supply solution out of the box,

- no need to search for a compatible Pico PSUs and power bric etc. and having too install the PSU yourself. Many builders may not complain about it but still it s a Pro, saved lot of searching, ordering and installation time during build.

2. Good utilization of space - the HDD and optical drive are mounted behind the motherboard so that they are not in the way of CPU cooler's air path, entire volume on the top of the cpu cooler is available for the air circulation. Mesh sidewall helps further getting better air circulation in tiny case jam packed with components. one of the better ones I have used.

3. Comes with VESA stand - I needed this and found it with this case.

4. Good quality build - feels solid and well constructed.

5. Looks good and draws attention of people when sitting next to the TV. - I wanted this looks to be even better though ..

Cons: 1. No USB 3

2. IKEA style instruction manual - didnt find it difficult to figure out but would have appreciated the manual in English with more details.
- everything worked out fine for me so not deducting any eggs for that.

3. Other cases in the series has better looks than this one, specially two tone fascia and modern appearance. Unfortunately not available here for purchase.

Other Thoughts: The manufacturer s website shows a wired remote that can be attached to this case, just could nt find it anywhere. contacted manufacturer a month ago via email, but never got any response ..Grrrr !

Seems that Inwin s not that interested in selling the wired remotes, which otherwise is a useful feature for me because it has a power button, audio jack and USB.
I wanted to mount the unit behind the monitor and having the wired remote hanging near the base of the monitor seems to be a great idea- especially leaving everyone guessing what is it for :).

Too bad cant find it anywhere yet....

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Looks better in person. Could fit on a dinner plate. Smart stand lets you stand on side or flat or even mount to VESA holes on your TV. External power brick is great and ventilation let me make an HTPC with zero moving parts.

Cons: Doesn't seem to have any. Could be a bit cheaper seeing how small it is. Typically would have bypassed it for something more well known at this price, but it turned out to be a good buy.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth a consideration, I'm keeping it.
