1 out of 5 eggsThe worst case I've ever seen

Pros: Small, nicely finished. But choose your motherboard VERY carefully.

Cons: Mechanically it's nice, but horribly laid out. There is no way 3.5" hard drive will fit in the front 3.5" bay. The drive must be mounted upside down on the floor of the case. And you have to thread it into that mounting point, fighting cables all the way.

Two different motherboards would not fit. On one the drive bay itself hit the CPU heatsink, and could not be installed. The other barely cleared the heatsink, but the DVD drive was too long to fit (and it was a short drive).

Other Thoughts: Stay away, far away.

Get the Antec ISK 300-150 instead. Or ANYTHING else.

I've used a lot of Mini-ITX cases, and this is the worst.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little no frills HTPC case

Pros: 1. Fits everything I wanted but it was a tight squeeze
2. Fits in my audio rack nicely - Doesn't look too garish
3. Runs relatively silent, fan sound is barely noticeable in a small room
4. Good value for the money

Cons: 1. Internal 3.5" drive mount needed modified to work with an OCZ SSD I used
2. On/Off blue button is a little bright

Other Thoughts: Built with Gigabyte GA-E350N-USB3 Mini-ITX motherboard, OCZ 120gb SSD, 3.5 external multicard reader, and 5.25 samsung DVD multireader.

Everything fit, but it was a real tight squeeze, I am happy with the purchase. I would certainly use it again if I was making another HTPC.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for HTPC!

Pros: Slick case, sturdy construction, 150W power supply. Good little case for an HTPC build.

Cons: Didn't have clear instructions for removing the hard drive bay. Luckily someone on New Egg wrote how to do it.

Other Thoughts: In order to remove the HDD bay you must remove the front bezel to be able to remove a screw. The front bezel will tilt slightly down and out from the top. Then pull until it releases. The bezel uses pressure clips so it is a little nerve wracking but it seemed stronger than I thought.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the money

Pros: Nice case for the money. You're able to fit the components in there without too much trouble.

Cons: The motherboard power connector is VERY short! Pay attention to where this connector is on your board. If it is not close to the front left of your motherboard it probably will not reach. Also some of the screws were over tightened. They stripped when trying to take them out to take the case apart.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, but not as advertised

Pros: This is a very easy to work on little case. The drive bays are on pins and once you remove two front screws, both bays lift out as one piece. The front panel is easy to get on/off and it's wired up fairly well. Comes with a 3 pin fan on the side.
The case feels sturdy enough once you put it all together and screw the PSU in.

Cons: The specs say that it has a 3.5" HD bay. While true, you will never fit a normal sized HD in this case with the stock flex power supply. I barely fit the 2.5" HD and the adapter for it. There is no documentation with it at all.

Other Thoughts: The PSU has 2 holes the same size in the end that the main power cables come through. For how it mounts it was in the top hole. I opened the PSU case and ran the wires through the bottom hole. This gave me a little more room to clean up the connections on the hard drive. An easy fix, but something that would have been nicer if the OEM did it from the beginning.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it for wife's nettop

Pros: Nice, small size. 3.5" external slot which I use for a card reader. Good quality, quiet PSU. Heavy duty external sheet metal with nice fit. Looks good vertical on the desk next to the PC.

Cons: I didn't get a manual and couldn't find one online. It took me a while to figure out you needed to take the front panel off to take the drive cage out. I was a little nervous taking off the front panel (afraid I would break a plastic tab, but I didn't). After I figured that out, everything went fine. A manual would have been nice.

Other Thoughts: I built this with a reused HDD and a new atom based mobo. For about $300 I got a nice nettop for my wife who simply wants a little quiet computer up out of the way so the kids don't hit the buttons. I had no problem getting a SATA HDD, SATA DVD burner, and a multi card reader in the case. Sure it's tight, it's supposed to be, it's micro ITX. If you want tons of room, get an ATX case. If you want to try to cram a suped up CPU and two HDDs, you are probably not going to be happy with this case.

4 out of 5 eggsSleek, solid mini-itx tower

Pros: -Stylish-looking
-Feels solid
-Well-ventilated, good case fan

Cons: -Gets very cramped (to be expected)
-Mounting internal 3.5" components feels a bit sketchy and unstable (seems like there are only 2 screws to work with? on the same side?) -1 egg

Other Thoughts: No manual, but you won't need one. This is my first build and I got through it fine. One screw to take off the side plate, pop off the bezel, then 2 more to remove the drive bay cage. Easy.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case for D510 build

Pros: Very well designed, discrete looking, compact, but roomy inside.
Fits D510MO motherboard.
Room for two 3.5" drives, one in internal 3.5" HDD bay, one in 5.25" bay with adapter.
Builtin PSU seems to work ok.

Cons: Power cables are an inch too short to fit power connector on D510MO without stretching across CPU heatsink. I have an extension on order to fix this but it shouldn't be necessary.

It would be nice if PSU was 80+ rated.

Other Thoughts: The best mini ITX case I have seen, and I looked at a lot of cases!

I did not flip fan as other reviewers have advised. In my case, I could not keep two hard drives cool this way. Instead, I have both PSU and 80mm fan blowing out of case. I sealed top vent and removed front 5.25" bay cover. Now I have lots of airflow for 2nd hard drive and temps dropped over 10C. Already have 5.25" bay cover grille on order. No extra fans necessary!

2 out of 5 eggsNice overall, but difficult to work with

Pros: Case looks great, built well.

Cons: If you want to buy this case, you have to find a motherboard that matches. Because the DVD drive sits on top of a good section of the motherboard, you can't get components that are too tall.

I bought the GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3. With that motherboard, the DVD drive sits directly on top of the CPU slot and the memory. The stock CPU was way too tall. I had to get a Silverstone NT07-1156, and basically cut part of it, and it still barely fits. Make sure to get memory without the fancy heat cages.

Also, the power cables and motherboard cables are on the opposite side that most motherboards expect, so they'll likely have to stretch across the entire computer.

2 out of 5 eggsPower Supply Broken

Pros: Nice Size

Cons: The power supply was malfunctions. It was a short or some sort of surging problem. It would click, but if left alone for about 10 minutes, the computer would work fine. But if you shut it down and didn't wait ten minutes, it would be clicking the next time you press power.

Other Thoughts: I wish the power cables were slightly longer. Its cool how its all compact, but there's so many places it could all go wrong.
