The cleanly-styled LC18 HTPC case stacks neatly with your rack stereo components to give your media center a polished look! The LC18 offers quiet operation with a heat-dissipating chassis, vents directed toward the CPU and PSU, and a pair of 80mm exhaust fans, and a pair of 80mm exhaust fans to keep everything running cool.
The concealed front I/O panel has 1 Fire Wire and 4 USB ports, and a pair of audio jacks, so you can quickly and easily connect your peripherals. A row of multimedia hotkeys across the front and a 7" touch screen panel give you instant access to your most-used functions.
Inside, the LC18 features a tray for your ATX or Micro ATX motherboard, mounts for two 5.25" external drives, an external 3.5" drive, five 3.5" internal drives, and seven expansion slots, the LC18 gives you all the space you need for your dream HTPC today, and room to grow in the future!
Cons: expensive, the touch screen did come with any special display software other then calibration software. not allot of airflow for 600 + you'd think they would included all the fans allowable but only came with one fan. after a year the display went out on me right after my roommate walked past it and accidently brushed his leg across the face of it and it cut out a dime size hunk of skin. It had sharp non debured edges. very disappointed. for the money I could have bought 6 decent cases. will never buy anything from Silverstone in the future. recently tried to see how much a replacement display would cost. they told me 350. really bad company

pretty sweet for HTPC
Pros: The display is is very nice. Crisp sharp images - and supports pretty high resolutions as well as wide screen ratios. Pretty high quality overall
Cons: Price... it's expensive! Also I've noticed that the touch screen can be off a milimeter or 2 from where the click occurs on the screen - after about 2 minutes I was used to it - but it was a minor nuisance.
Other Thoughts: This makes for a great htpc case. It looks nice from the front - like other home theater gear - and the touch screen gives you a lot of flexibility. Also it has native Vista support - which sees it as a tablet.
