3 out of 5 eggsLittle Red Toaster

Pros: Great form factor...
Fit my ATOM MB perfectly
Quiet fan...

Cons: Flex PS (might be difficult to replace)
Front LED lights won't work
1 power button... no reset button

Other Thoughts: I used mine as a NAS... hooked up 2 TB drives and running FreeNAS... I had a friend comment that it looked like a Red Toaster but I wasn't picky. I needed a small/cheap case for my purpose... The LED lights wouldn't work properly but I didn't bother to troubleshoot... I got it during Cyber-Monday for $35... I wouldn't pay more for it

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

Pros: Attractive, small, fairly quiet

Cons: Terrible optical drive cover/button, VERY tight inside

Other Thoughts: I used this case to build a comptuer for my son, and it certainly gets the job done with a minimum footprint. The optical drive solution, though, is terrible. The eject buttons easily beomes dislodged, and the drive bay door sticks open. For a machine that rarely needs the optical drive, it's not a big deal. I could see it being an issue for an HTPC, though.

3 out of 5 eggsPower Supply

Pros: Style: looks great with the blue power led and orange hdd light around the power button. Good air flow and plenty of room to get your hands in the case. No sharp edges and a sturdy steel frame.

Cons: My main gripe is the 150w power supply. It blew after one week because It couldn't push my components. The faceplate is plastic and the door for the optical drive seems pretty flimsy.

Other Thoughts: I want to give this box 2 eggs for the weak psu, but it's my own fault for not checking the specs before buying this unit. If you get it, you should definitely get a 45w processor. I really like the ITX form factor, but the components are still too expensive with not much choice. I wish I would have gone with a Shuttle barebone instead.

My Build:
Celeron 2.2 @65w
250 gig hdd @7200rpm
DVD RW Optical drive
2x1 Gigs Kingston Hyper X RAM

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Looks, compact size. I had no trouble installing an Intel Itx motherboard. There is sufficient room for the board and your hands. It's shape allows for a full height expansion card too. In my case a wireless adapter. No need to hunt down a half height card.

Cons: I would give it 5 eggs except there is no reset switch. I am going to have to drill a hole and mount my own. The door for the DVD, when open is in the way of the DVD switch. Its awkward to get my fat finger in there to get the tray to close.

Other Thoughts: I built this for my grandson for his bedroom. It's small footprint is very nice when you're cramped for space.

4 out of 5 eggsGood looking, Low Price

Pros: Very good looking case. Roomy for a small case too. I didn't have too much trouble installing the system. It made for a very simple build. The price isn't too bad either.

It came with clear instructions, and even included a couple of small zip ties for cable management. I was even able to install a laptop sized HDD without using an adapter. They installed the mobo standoffs for me.

The Power Supply came with more than enough plugs. The included fan is nice. All of the included cables are long enough. It isn't terribly loud at all.

Cons: The case is not too bad at all. There a just a few little bits that are the difference between a $50 case and a $100 case. The DVD ROM cover seems like it could get stuck (I didn't install a DVD ROM in this build). Most of the sharp edges inside are rolled, but not all. The power button pushes in a bit crooked and doesn't pop back out smoothly. The USB connections in the front aren't the best looking.
The PCI expansion slot is has a blank cover over it. The cover sits loose and rattles when you move the case.

Other Thoughts: This really is a good looking case. I would buy it again if I were looking for an inexpensive case in this size. However, if it were sitting beside my TV I would look for something with a little higher quality and different design.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case. Few complaints

Pros: -Small design (11"x 7.87" x 6.54") with the bezel
-HD led looks nice
-Decent internal layout. PSU on the bottom front is nice.
-Cool front bezel cover'
-Decent Weight

Cons: - Case DVD drive cover is cheap and can cause the dvd tray to get stuck.
- Optical drive tray button is hard to press when the optical drive tray is out.
-Wish it was a tad smaller.
- The wires from the power supply can get in the way of the power supply fan.

Other Thoughts: -I resolved the issue with the DVD tray cover getting stuck by removing my DVD tray bezel.

4 out of 5 eggsIts ok.

Pros: Looks cool. Comes with a power supply. Tucks neatly out of the way. No lights on it. Is the on/off switch supposed to light up?

Cons: Cheap quality. Plastic tab broke off when getting front cover off the first time. It still stays on without a problem though. Instructions were inside the case.

Other Thoughts: It is a pain working with itx cases. No room!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Everything works fine. Gloss finish is perfect.

Cons: None really, the power button was a little sticky at first, but a little use loosened it up.
Adjusting the optical drive to work with the case eject button took a few tries, but it works great now.

Other Thoughts: I got this as an Open Box deal for about half price including shipping.
I installed an Intel dual-core Atom board, everything fits perfectly.

3 out of 5 eggsReview

Pros: It serves the purpose fine. Looks pretty good, can set stuff on it. (not you, just stuff)
Super awesome Pink hard drive light. and pink lights

Cons: Not impressed with the build quality - but it's OK i guess.
I figured a mini case at S3venty bucks might actually be a little nicer than a mid-tower at the same price(less material in the itx size), not true.
Front DVD flap thing - stops the ROM from opening and must be pulled to let the tray slide out. Removed it completely and I'm satisfied(button still works OK).
Semi-cheap metal construction with a few razors throughout.

Other Thoughts: Newegg has prices that are just a smidge above wholesale, and some that are less.
If you must get the case(its OK) but don't pay more than Newegg's.
