5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: I build a lot of computers and I am really surprised at the poor reviews of this case. There are cons but not enough for an egg.
It is exactly what it is supposed to be. A Space saving and functional computer case that isnt crazy expensive.
The lcd mount alone would sell 20-30 without the case so dont forget that!
The mount really works great, built it for a customer with a 19" lcd. No reason it couldnt hold bigger or smaller. It slides up and down securely, and then you can pivot it up and down which is great.
If you put it on a desk and get the computer at eye level, it is really good on the back and shoulders (ergonomic positioning?)
I mounted a wireless keyboard receiver behind the LCD and all of the cables as well, which dont inhibit function, and give a real clean feel.

DVD flip works awesome and would fit any dvd drive. I wish all computer cases had this!
The fewer labels the better.

Cons: The hard drive was a little difficult to get in, but I liked it when installed.
The DVD drive was a real pain, but worked great after in.

There is a cable tie tied where the dvd drive and it looks permanent, not great directions in manual, so not removing it kinda hinders progress, but,, it happens. I still got it in there and didnt realize till later but continued to use the tie where it laid.

The case does not trap interior sound well, but, since this was never intended to be an overclocking machine, I just turned on the cool & quiet fan features and presto! just a tiny tiny whir. No temp issues and yada.

Other Thoughts: READ THIS!!!
Don't mess with the DVD Drive springs... Trust me, they appear faulty before you install a drive, but they arent. If you knock em off, have fun spending an hour or so getting them back on.

All of this I still give it 5 eggs. The final result is what counts.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case and Solid

Pros: Plenty of room for ATX motherboard, and components, including larger video cards. Drive mounting can be a little tricky, but once figured out is good. The LCD mounting makes this case everything it should be. Adjustable and rotating for LCDs, and decent cable management. Solidly built, and

Cons: Wish there was a cover for the backend to cover up the cables and ports as they are on full display on the left side. A minor thing. Only other way

Other Thoughts: This case is a great alternative to AIO systems, and still feels like an AIO, but with all the expansion capabilities you want. Would be nice in other colors, and perhaps a little more slicker design, but since most of the case is hidden by the LCD monitor it's no big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsgeat case....tight fit on psu

Pros: Has enough room to fit a normal atx mobo, (2) ati 4850 crossfired, and a dual core amd proc with no heat issues, i was gaming all day and noticed no problems

Cons: came with broken latch button that is used to adjust the height of the monitor, no real big deal but QC should have caught it or there packaging methods need work as the broken part was not in the box....because of that i gave 4 instead of 5 eggs...also be prepared to work some magic on your psu if you have a "stiff" wired 20+4 cable, that took longer to manage than anything else

Other Thoughts: as others have said, this case works in tight spaces

5 out of 5 eggsNovel Case Design

Pros: A one-of-a-kind PC case. Space saving L-shaped design will accomodate both mATX and ATX mobo's. Holds many LCD monitors with VESTA mounts.

Cons: Mine arrived without the little bag of mounting accessories. Chieftec customer service quickly sent the needed parts. And a big thumbs up to NewEgg for their help.

Other Thoughts: Only one 120mm fan; no other options to easily add additional fan(s). Recommend a low wattage, cool running CPU with an upgraded CPU cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: The case is fantastic. Easy to assemble, and the mounting bracket for the LCD is awesome. I bought it because I was tired of typical towers, and didn't want to shell out megabucks for something flashier. It is surprisingly quiet, and sturdy.

Cons: Only has 3 internal 3.5" mounting points, and 1 5.25". Although the drives are all isolated by rubber padded screws to reduce noise/vibration. Wish I could have put more drives in.

Other Thoughts: No cooling problems, eye-catching design. Running an ASUS P5-B MLB, E6400 CPU, 4GB DDR2 RAM and a GeForce 8600GT.

3 out of 5 eggsneat idea

Pros: well thought out. innovative.

Cons: price.
Even with a potential rebate, ( as we all know mail in rebates are notosiously turned down for bogus reasons these days) It just isn't worth the hassles.

Other Thoughts: stop with the mail in rebates and just give us A GOOD PRICE RIGHT AWAY!
We have done enough work, earning the money to pay for this junk. Then we have to AGAIN WORK to try and get a mail in rebate.

4 out of 5 eggsNice unique case

Pros: I used this for a build for a friend with a very small space for a computer. If you need a nice small footprint, and attaching the monitor to the case, it's a great case. Probably not for a gamer or tweaker, but works for a lot of other situations. Good paint job, and no sharp edges.

Cons: USB ports in the front are mounted upside down.

Other Thoughts: Would have preferred it to be a standard 3.5" faceplate so I could have used a media card reader or something else. I would have preferred that the 5.25 drive bay had a regular front bezel, rather than the springloaded door. 120mm exhaust fan is silent, but slow. I would have liked one that moved more air at the expense of a little more noise. Also, would have liked a handle built into it... it just begs to be carried that way.
