4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Sleek modern looking case that fits in well with other home theater equipment. Plenty of space for HDD's or SSD's, Plenty of options for fans, Nice aluminum front

Cons: Verily fit in my home theater cabinet( be sure to measure the depth of your cabinet plus the space needed for cords connecting in the back, I had to drill holes in the back so it wouldn't pinch my power and HDMI cable).
Not a light case with the parts installed

4 out of 5 eggsWorks when it's done but a pain to set up

Pros: Looks very sleek on the outside, just like a HiFi component, fits very well on my rack along with the receiver etc.

Built-in card reader and front-facing USB 3.0 connectors.

Good surfaces on the inside -- no sharp edges.

No fitting issues with standard size power supply.

Decent ventilation

Cons: DVD bay module has space for two drives but only top one can be used realistically. The bottom of the bay module presses onto or touches ATX motherboard's power connectors. Taking an egg off for that -- in a space-saving case like this the manufacturer could have made the DVD bay module splittable so that bottom half could be taken out to save space

Other Thoughts: Space is tight. I mean, VERY tight if you use a full ATX motherboard which is why I got the case in the first place (for Asus P6X58D)

There is no room to maneuver if you make a mistake in sequencing -- that is, you better know exactly the order in which you intend to put the components in, which in turn takes a lot of trying and reverting until you get it right. Leave some time for that.

Sequence seems to be something like this:

-- Mount power supply
-- Mount motherboard with CPU fan mounted and connected to power and memory already in
-- Take out HD bay
-- Take out DVD bay
-- Insert motherboard power connectors and any fan power connectors close the DVD bay corner
-- Mount DVD drive only into top the bay module
-- Run DVD drive data cable to MB under and around the 3.5" bay space
-- Mount DVD bay module
-- Mount any HDDs into the HDD module. HDD module is wide so mount HDs in a way that leaves max space for the video card
-- Run HDD data cables to the MB under the HDD bay
-- Run reset, power, HDD LED, external USB etc case wires around and under HDD bay space and connect them to MB
- Finally, mount the HDD bay and connect the power to DVD and HDDs.
- Once it's all done, use twist wires to secure any power/data cables so they dont touch each other/fan blades/motherboard.

Other notes:

-- You will need a modular power supply to reduce the number of cables

-- You will need a low(er)-sitting CPU fan like CoolerMaster Gemini II S524

-- Triple check the height and length of the video card you intend to use because there is no room for error on that one. I used an older MSI nVidia 9500GT card with no issues.

-- The DVD bay module has space for two drives technically but only the top one can be used realistically. The bottom part of the DVD bay module is useless and presses on the motherboard power connectors (full ATX)

-- DVD bay module has to be secured and mounted in place before you start inserting the 3.5" HDD module adjacent to it because you can't access the screws once the HDD module is in place
