4 out of 5 eggsMy first HTPC case

Pros: Good value, great styling, good ventilation, easy to add components, plenty of drive space. One of the features I liked was a hole on the back to thread a security cable through to prevent theft.

Cons: CPU air shroud should be black, not gray, since it is so easily seen through the top. Front panel door hasn't broken but I wouldn't plan on stressing it too much. The cable to extend audio to the front panel was too short for my motherboard. It was difficult to install some PCI cards with large external ports connections, like the BNC connectors on my Surveillance DVR card. The external button to open the optical drive door doesn't make the best contact. Directions were really poor. A first time system builder would have had issues.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if any other cases have this, but an included IR receiver would have been great. Even given its shortcomings, I am very happy with my purchase.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: cheap
looks good
room for parts

Cons: maybe its just my DVD drive but the buttons are kinda weird to push in and open the DVD drive, maybe other DVD drives are better?
very hard to push in the button it shut the DVD drive wqhen the tray is open, almost have to push the drive to get it to shut.
the when the door opens for the drive it opens and goers over the button to shut the drive, thats really my only issue with this whole unit.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill FE-h010 ATX Media center Case

Pros: Very good looking case. very sleek , glossy black matched my other HT setup. Just small enough to fit in my TV stand with the other stuff, and not be awkward. It is full height, and takes full sized ATX motherboards, as well as conventional ATX PSU. it has room for at least 2 Optical drives as well as 2 HDD, and has top and side venting where extra fans can be mounted. I used a pretty small GPU an Sapphire 4350 512, fan-less, and mounted a 92mm fan above it for better cooling. There is a tunnel on the bottom side to route cooling air for the PSU, that seems adequate. LEDs aren't obnoxiously bright, like some cases.

Cons: It does mount full ATX boards, but it is very tight at that size, I am glad I put my Gigabyte MA 770 DS3 which is ATX length but not width in it as it fit's very well. Biggest complaint is lack of airflow and not much room to keep the cabling out of the airflow.

Other Thoughts: All in all an excellent value for the money, and not ugly.

If you are looking for a PSU for it go modular, I used what I had on hand, but modular would be the way to go.

You may have to remove the front flat part of your DVD drive to allow it to push open the external door adequately, I did.

Also it is kinda longish, please read the description and measure your space prior to getting it.

this build;

Gigabyte MA 770 DS3. Athlon X2 64 5050be, Optiarc 7171 DVD, Sapphire Radeon 4350, 320 GB WD Cav Blue, 8 GB Mushkin ddr2 800, Antec Eartwatts 430 PSU.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for ATX

Pros: It is a nice looking case. I was impressed when i took it out of the box. Its a great price for a HTPC case if it did what it says.

Cons: This case is not well designed for ATX. Yes the mounting holes are there. Completely unlabled and with no directions. But you can figure it out if you know what you're doing. The powersupply hangs over the edge of my board, blocking half the SATA ports, the powerbutton connectors, IDE port, and the power connector. If you need to work on it expect to pull the power suppy. And you may not even be able to access some of your ports. I could deal with those issues though, except my memory COMPLETELY blocks access to the connections for the second 5.25 bay. Which was the entire reason i got this case.

Other Thoughts: I have never had a complaint of a Rosewill product, but of over a dozen builds this is by far the most unpleasent. Normally its enjoyable. Now, it is an HTPC. Space is expected to be tight, and they are generally a pain. I might even consider this case if i ever found a mATX with the features i need. But if youve got ATX or are looking at one make sure the front edge of the board has as little as possible on it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case, GREAT Price

Pros: Price, Size, Function. Great case for the price, room for 2 optical drives, 2 hard drives, and a full size video card(Read: Full size, not oversize), Best card I've found for this is the new Nvidia Geforce 240 with native HDMI. Fits snugly but perfectly and has FULL native HDMI. Sound and Video. This case is as big as an audio reciever or 2 dvd players stacked on top of each other. Clean lines and looks great!

Cons: Parts are still plastic and can break if you're not careful. Directions are far more useful as toilet paper.

Other Thoughts: I like it! Full ATX MOBO Full size Vid Card and it fits perfectly in my Home Theater shelving.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Basic HTPC Case

Pros: Looks, size, Function, holds upto ATX MOBO with full size Video card ,but not the likes of a 5850/285 of course.
Great price, Solid enough to sit on a shelf and solid enough to be moved around

Cons: No remote sensor or place for Remote sensor...3,5"bay is covered

Other Thoughts: As other reviewers mentioned The PSU is mounted Plug forward inside the case...
Causing the PSU to FIGHT the rear exhaust fans....
I simply turned the Fan inside my PSU around and now it pulls air from the bottom of the case and pushes it towards the Rear exhaust fans..Thus solving that problem...
It took 5 minutes to remedy that problem...

Good service from the Egg as always

3 out of 5 eggsRosewill Black/Silver HTPC Retail

Pros: -Matches decor
-Sturdy design
-It's a HTPC case...
-Everything quiet.

Cons: -PSU is mounted on the front left hand side of the case. I moved the case after build and thought i shorted something out. No, the PSU cable got unplugged. Luckly, just a pop of the front panel gets you to the cable.

-Speaking of PSU. It was near impossible to get the other two screws on the right side in...unless you have a magnetic screwdriver.

-Unclear instructions. I had a hard time figuring out how to set the rails up on the DVD drive and still have the drive fit. ALSO, it doesn't seem like most drives will fit...unless I did something wrong.

-I/O panel covering was a woohoo to get off. Even with metal clippers.

-Front panel connectors for USB/Sound BARELY made it to the connectors on my motherboard. Did not like that at all.

-Power button sticks down when pressed. Sometimes this will make the computer not turn on until you pop the button out. I resolved this by making the reset button (that acts as a normal spring) be the power button. Who resets anyway? :|

Other Thoughts: Rosewill had a good idea on their hand. I would have preferred if it was going to be a front mounting PSU to allow the builder to mount it upside down so that the fan can effectively cool down the unit and maybe a vent to push out all that hot air.

In defense, I have not had the overheating issues that the last reviewer had. Doesn't mean that it isn't a problem all the same.

Also would had like to see the top vent be in line with CPU.

Currently have a 120 mounted where the CD drives are because I couldn't get my Sony DVD burner in there. I'll try a slim burner the next time.

All pros and cons aside, I would actualy buy this case again. The cons weren't game breaking and if I wanted to put in the effort, I could fix the power button issue. 3/5 stars. Newegg server 5 stars as usual.

3 out of 5 eggsPower Supply overheats

Pros: Overall nice case. Came with parts bag, rails. I like the looks. The quality is pretty good for the price, better than I expected.

Cons: The main purpose of this case is for HTPC. When I put the case on the shelf in my Armour with the doors open the computer starts to get really hot. The shelf is about 4ft wide x 2ft deep and 10inches tall. The problem is the power supply is mounted in the front of the case with metal covering/redirecting airflow to the PS fan. I thought I had a bad power supply so I tried another computer that normally runs cool and quiet but that too started to overheat within about an hour. I set the unit outside the Armour and it runs cooler as expected.

Other Thoughts: I have not yet figured out what else to do, but it seems no matter how little the load is the PS overheats. The only cheap feeling of the case was the front usb/card reader door. I also had a difficult time putting the top cover on, tab alignment I guess. Case metal a bit thin but not that bad. I was really surprised that it overheated in such a roomy shelf, with that in mind I would consider your application before purchasing this case.
