4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case for HTPC

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Built a nice HTPC with this case.

Silverston ML03B case
AMD AM1 Athlon 5350 APU
MSI AM1M mobo
Mushkin ECO2 60GB SSD
Antec 450 80+ Bronze
Lite-On DVD drive

There a decent amount off room for parts and cooling so I'm a happy camper.

Cons: Only complaint is the paint seems to chip off easy around the cover screws, but not bad so not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsPlenty of room, but a fair amount of clutter

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: The size is perfect. It's the same width as my other A/V components and shallow enough to fit on an Ikea shelf. Has plenty of expansion slots to accommodate half-height expansion cards (video, usb). Front facing USB 3.0 is great for wireless keyboard and game controller from the couch. Price is good.

Cons: It's slightly flimsy while you're installing everything especially if the PSU isn't installed. The space premium also means you'll need to route all of the PSU cables around any of the expansion cards you install. Because this isn't intended as a portable unit though none of this matters once it's in place.

The one thing I actually take eggs off for is the length of the provided cabling. They've included the same components as they do with their full-sized tower cases and the cables are long enough to plug into the next computer over. This makes managing them very tedious. So you get -1/2 egg, rounded up.

Other Thoughts: While technically you can fit a full-size PSU you'll be much more comfortable with an SFX unit if you'll be wanting any sort of optical drive in the thing.

I should mention that to optimize the mounting depth you'll want to get right-angled HDMI and power cables.

Wouldn't mind seeing SilverStoneTek provide extra-short fan splitter cable to drive the four 80mm fans this case can hold. I've got four Noctua fans and there are wire bundles everywhere even after management due to the short runs afforded/required by the size of the case. I know they can do this because they sell all sorts of other products like that.

1 out of 5 eggsOverpriced

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: This will hold a regular-sized power supply. Low profile.

Cons: Paint chips when a screw dropped from 3" hits the top of the case. Flimsy build. The metal used feels to be several millimeters thinner than what could be considered standard. The door to the 5.25" bay is loose when installed. The ridged design of the plastic front is reminiscent of an 80s "hologram" card. A metal bar is included to assist in reinforcing the case. It stretches across the middle top. Yes, they included a metal bar because that was cheaper than using aluminum for the entire case that would have only needed to be several millimeters thicker to provide a sturdier frame.

Other Thoughts: Silverstone is overpriced and it is ridiculous to charge $65 for a case that cost a fraction of that. They chose to maximize their profit margin over quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case but needs a few tweaks.

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Awesome form factor! I used a mATX board and it went in with no problems!

Great cable routing management for a case this size. Comes with big bundle ties to keep everything together.

Very flexible HDD/SSD placements.

Cons: Awesome form factor! My hands are too big to handle anything in the case without dropping it!

Useless SSD bracket. It goes over the front I/O panel and you cannot screw in the SSD or HDD without custom screws. The ones supplied just don't cut it.

Other Thoughts: Great for my new Steam stream box / HTPC. It fits under my TV but over my receiver perfectly. Looks awesome right now.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Very nice aesthetics. Looks right at home in a TV cabinet or entertainment center. Mounts for 4 cooling fans is a plus too. It also has several places to tie extra cables to keep them out of the way (and they give you some ties too).

Cons: Cooling fans are about the only thing there's plenty of space for. It's pretty cramped in there. Not much space for an aftermarket CPU cooler. The inside of the front plate had some extra flash or something from a weld that made it very difficult to get all four fans in place.

Other Thoughts: Pay close attention to the size of your components especially if you want an optical drive. Mine has about 1" between it and the PSU; barely enough room for the cables. Given the tight space I highly recommend going for all 4 fans.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Sturdy solid design. Nice arrangement of mounting bays allowing multiple HDDs to be installed. Allows for use of full sized ATX PSU in a case that easily fits into an entertainment center. Despite the small form factor there is ample room, especially with a micro-ATX motherboard. Anti-vibration grommets for mounting HDDs. Looks like a piece of AV equipment.

Cons: One of the screw holes for the power supply was slightly off. I managed to get a screw in but I was rather difficult to do without cross threading.

Other Thoughts: If you want a quality HTPC case without spending a lot of money this is your best bet.

4 out of 5 eggsAttractive case

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Fits well on an entertainment center amongst HT gear
Good looking design
Fairly sturdy

Cons: If you have large hands like me, woe to you. Not much room to work in it
The lid has perforation to allow for the CPU fan to vent, but frustratingly has no perforations over the PSU area.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case- belongs in my A/V rack!

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Beautiful low-profile case, exactly the same width as all my other A/V stuff- fits in the 19" rack perfectly.

Well laid out- enough room for my 2.5"SATA SSD, 3.5" SATA HDD, standard DVD/CD burner (SATA), Digital PCIe CableCard tuner, MicroATX Mobo (Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3H), and my Rosewill ATX power supply. I didn't have any problems with cable routing or fan placement. Strong case- nice and solid construction.

Includes a nice (perhaps a bit too long) USB3 header cable AND a USB 2 header adapter (I didn't need the adapter, though).

Includes all the hardware, cable ties and thingies you'll need for a clean, solid build.

Cons: No included fan? Really? This case has (on the right side) 4 side by side mounts for 80mm fans.

Using the old-style PATA cable might be...a bit rough...I used all SATA.

Other Thoughts: More fans running slowly= good cooling with no noise. The entire right side is perforated. Keeps everything nice and cool.

Power supply fan draws air from bottom and exhausts out back.

Interesting plastic mount for additional 2.5" or 3.5" drive...or perhaps more...if you get creative.

Rubbber shock mounts for 3.5" drive bay. 2 Fan filters included.

I can't say enough good things about this case. It's pretty. It's well-built. If you're looking for an awesome HTPC case- THIS is it. I don't particularly like the "newer" replacement. Ya can't improve on perfection.

4 out of 5 eggsGood HTPC case

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: It looks great and matches my other Theater Equipment. Its very roomy for an HTPC case.

Cons: The USB 3.0 cord is absurdly long. If you install a ATX power supply a CD-Rom may not fit depending on how big the power supply is. If you buy the Silverstone SPX power supply like I did you will need an ATX power extender to reach most ITX motherboard power connectors.

4 out of 5 eggsMakes for a good HTPC

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum skin reinforced plastic front panel, 0.8mm SECC body MILO Series ML03B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Stylish, roomy, and fairly easy to work with.
Takes a standard size ATX PSU
Front USB3 ports.

Cons: There's a 3.5"HDD mount under the 5.25" mounting bracket but you have to remove the bracket to really have access to it and its 6 screws to take out that mount. Do this first thing and save yourself some time. LoL

80mm fan mounts don't quite line up with the fan's screw holes but I managed to get 3 fans in with a little force.

Case is shinier than a black optical drive. I'm going to polish and wax my BDR drives face plate to try and get it to match better.

Other Thoughts: There's no front to back airflow, which you know if you look into this before you buy, but the side to rear works for me for this install. I just worry about the SSD & HDD since there is little airflow in that area. Since this is an HTPC and those won't be under heavy use this is probably ok but I would like to see a fan mount on that side of the case too; right next to the HDD mount would be perfect. :-)
