4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing looks great, really thick aluminum side panels give it a real quality feel to it. Filtered intake, positive pressure case means (hopefully) a lot less problems with dust.

Cons: The AP141 fan that comes with the case is pretty loud at 12v.
The black paint on the drive tray parts was somehow already scratched when I opened the case, but it was definitely new.

Other Thoughts: The reset switch is the same height and button style as the power button. I just wish it was recessed to make it more distinct from the power button.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini-ITX case

Pros: -Provisioning for self-contained water cooling like H60/H80 or Antec Kuhlers, as well as installation instructions in the manual
-Up to 10" long video card support, exemplary for a Mini-ITX case
-Good hard drive expandability
-Fairly quiet and powerful AirPenetrator intake fan on the bottom
-Very compact
-Well constructed, good looking, high quality exterior materials
-Unique and gorgeous design looks great on a desk

Cons: -Hard drive cages are a bit clunky and hard to re-insert when full of components
-Side panels sometimes fall off a bit too easy
-Installation is a bit involved
-Slot load DVD/BluRay drive limits choices

Other Thoughts: This is a great case. I installed an AMD APU A8-3870K and Antec Kulher 620 with a Radeon 6670, 8GB of DDR3 G.Skill Ares RAM, 1 2.5" SSD, 1 3.5" 1TB drive and one Sony BC-5650H Bluray reader,DVDRW, and ST45F SFX PSU.

Piece of advice: RTM! Doit now! It has full instructions including a WC mini-rad install due to small CPU clearance on Mini-ITX motherboards. The built-in AP141 fan provides ample air flow for rad and GPU, as they engineered a space where the fan still flows freely into the case past the rad. Nice.

My only qualm is that the hard disk cages have some slightly sharp tabs that can damage cables when re-inserted, and are a bit painful to re-install with a case full of components. I also would have preferred a tray load optical slot, as slim/slot-load BluRay writers are extinct it seems.

Otherwise this is a tremendously engineered case and awesome for any ITX build. I may even try a GTX 670 in it soon.
