4 out of 5 eggsExcellent M-ITX case

Pros: I have built many mini ITX systems and this is by far the best quality case. The included cooling fan runs very quiet. Easy access from both sides of case. Could even fit a dual slot graphics card (had to remove lower drive bay).

Cons: 1. Would be nice if they offered a version without the power supply for less $. 300W is just not enough if you want to use a discrete graphics card and performance CPU.
2. The internal USB 3.0 cable adapter is not included. Like the reviewer before me, I had the same issues with the USB header. But I found this adapter cable from Silverstone, the SST-CP09 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812162012
3. Some cooling holes on the left side panel would be great to get more air flow if you want to use a dual slot graphics card.

3 out of 5 eggsWhat were they thinking

Pros: Cute and functional design, almost looks like a little cargo truck with wheels.
Can fit a full sized optical drive unlike some other cases of this size.
Thick metal, sturdy and very high quality. No sharp edges.
Sides just pop off and on which is cool.
Fan has rubber mounts and filter.
Internal drives get direct cooling from front fan.
Lots of room for a case this size (caveat in cons).

Cons: Biggest thing is the front USB ports do not connect to the MB header. Instead they extend out the back of the case through a notch and plug into the rear MB ports. This gives me a total of 6 usable USB ports for the entire case (instead of 8) which is not enough. This is very misleading on the product description and the product should be pulled IMO.
Smaller quirks are that the SFX power supply floats in the middle of what looks like an adapter plate to mount in a full sized ATX cutout. This wastes space and the power supply could easily mount over an inch higher up. This can be a big deal depending on what CPU cooler you use.
It is probably designed perfectly around a 120 fan but I feel it could use a few more ventilation holes.

Other Thoughts: Wish list.
Needs USB header cables!
A front head phones port would be nice.
Case could have had room for a 140mm fan if they did it right. Provided 120mm fan is plain, has no LEDs and is not speed controllable.
They should make a model with side windows.
Drive cage could extend to bottom of case for more bays and would have made case even sturdier.

It is a shame I might have to return due to the USB problem as I really think the case is very well made and unique looking.
