3 out of 5 eggsThis thing is huge!

Pros: Well made. Aesthetically pleasing. USB 3.0!

Cons: Way too deep. Newegg's restocking fee and pay your own shipping to return.

Other Thoughts: I've been waiting to upgrade to an HTPC case for my PC and looking for a good price. This case had all the features I wanted and was finally at the right price so I picked one up. I measured to make sure it would fit, but I didn't account for wires and plugs in the back. Once i put it in my stand I realized that it was way too deep and the plugs would just hit the back of the tv stand. Anyway, I liked the case, but I'm returning it. The restock fee and paying shipping sure will take a chunk out of my refund. Would have almost made more sense to just pay the full price elsewhere and get free return shipping and no restocking fee.

4 out of 5 eggsTorn

Pros: Good quality overall. VERY VERY spaceeeeecous (bigger than a mid tower, only on it's side, this can be a con as well) Had everything I wanted in a HTPC case, would have liked one more 3.5 inch slot because I wanted two Blu Rays for when I am in burning mode. USB 3.0 is AWESOME and totally worth the upgrade, and it is 100% backwards compatible! Mounting bays are removable, so they are easy to install drives and cables where you can see. Internal Fans are adjustable. Plenty of room for cable management.

Cons: This case is overpriced by about $30-$40 just because it is usb 3.0 and there are not many 3.0 cases. The internal case fan cages and some edges are extremely sharp! or should I say need lots of smoothing. There is too much wasted space in this case. I found the fans not to be very good. They are loud and don't move much air.

Other Thoughts: I cut my hands and decided to put on my leather gloves. This is not something I expect from a $175 case!! in fact it is just plain rude, not to care enough about the customer cutting their hands, but then laughing all the way to the bank ( while I am bleeding all over my computer ) Therefor I surmise I will stick with other brands as a system builder, but you have to try something once to know. Now everyone else knows. What I worry most is infection from a cut, that has been manufactured in CHINA, you might get some flesh rotting bacteria..and then your skin would fall off.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Large HTPC Case

Pros: This case is really big and well put together. It's pretty hard to find a decent HTPC case that can fit GTX 680 SLI cards, but this one does no problem. Also I was able to replace the hanging 120mm fans with the Corsair H100 water cooler... if you save the vertical brackets from the hanging fans it fits perfectly.

Cons: No real cons, just make sure you measure. Also because the case is so deep depending on your motherboard, you may want some extra long sata cables.

Other Thoughts: This case is really deep, much deeper than I expected. Also it comes with an option space for a 140mm fan which it doesn't list here, you might consider adding that.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's bigger then I wanted

Pros: Wow when I open the box I now was thinking nead a bigger theater stand! It's big! About the size of a everyday gaming rig if you stand it on its side, not recommended though. It's a beautiful case and lots of room I could of set up a 3 way ati cross fire and still have room to spare! It's so big some of my storage drive was to short. I love the case hard drive rack and cd drive racks got a sweet setup. All all drives are suspended with rubber grommets cool and quiet, but do not loose the center support cause with out it, the case is week and flimsy with the waght of all the parts installed. After putting the cover on the case is strong! This is a seuris gaming home theater pc case! Planing on a water cooler too but there's no holes for the hoses.

Cons: No ir sencer for htpc remote and too long for my component shelf.

Other Thoughts: It's so big I can live in it! O did I say it's rack moutable! Its a beautiful case!
