4 out of 5 eggsGood but can be better.

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Small.
Support SSD plus 3.5inch hard drive.
Come with the fan in box.

Cons: Not as small as it can be. It's just as big as SG13, while requiring SFX power supply. I'd expect it a lot thiner than it is.

Other Thoughts: Bought it because it is the smallest box for a mini-itx gaming machine. Seeing it use SFX power supply, I expect it to be an inch thinner than SG13. Turns out exactly the same size.(size difference really can be ignored)
Personal taste, doesn't look as good as SG13.
Though it does come with the front facing fan in box (even though front facing fan is not always needed).
And it does has a 3.5 inch hard drive bay inside, unlike SG13 only allow two SSD/2.5inch hard drive.
Depends on what you need though.

5 out of 5 eggsSugo SG05-Lite

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Small
Good Layout
Will handle most Graphics cards

Cons: If you use a modular power supply the cords will be very tight, you will have to remove the PS to connect cords.
The LED is very bright, a little to bright

Other Thoughts: This is a small case, read the instructions manual before trying to work with it. The cases layout is logical and straight forward. If you are going to put a graphics card in this case be sure you don't get one that is to long. This is probably the smallest case you could get and build a good gameing PC with. You probably won't be able to run games at 4K res due to the limited length of graphics card but I could be wrong there. I have not looked into building a system that was meant for that.

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Sweet and simple. If you like that no-nonsense look combined with great functionality, then this is a great case to consider. It's roomier than many other itx cases, especially if you chuck the large hard drive bracket and go with the smaller SSDs. It provides audio and mic inputs, as well as a USB 3.0 cable, from the front panel to the mobo, and that big 120 mm fan in the front keeps everything nice and cool. Another big plus is the price. I'm extremely satisfied.

Cons: These are little things, but they might bother some people: The blue indicator light, as mentioned by many others, is quite bright, and the power button seems a little small and flimsy (but it has always worked and never gotten stuck, so far).

Other Thoughts: I bought one of these for my wife's computer, and liked it so much I bought a second one for a Linux box. If I were going to design an itx case myself, this is pretty close to what I'd come up with.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect HTPC Case for me

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Case size was perfect for my situation. Case built well for the price point. Very clean look. Front USB 3.0. Good ventilation. Quiet 120mm intake fan. Although tight space, I had no problems routing cables and wiring.

Cons: When HTPC is asleep, power lights blinks a bright blue. It doesn't bother me, but It may to some.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very pleased with this case and would recommend it. I see some reviews complained about front bezel being plastic and looking cheap. I have no complaints about the appearance and had no problems with removing it and reinstalling.

Build included:
MSI A68HI AC FM2+ AMD A68H
AMD A8-7600 Kaveri Quad-Core 3.1GHz
G.SKILL AEGIS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 MKNSSDEC240GB 2.5" 240GB SSD
FSP Group FSP300-60GHS-R 300W SFX12V Power Supply
SAMSUNG 8x Internal Slim DVD Burner SATA Model SN-208FB/BEBE

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolute beast for it's size.

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: -High quality finish throughout the chassis.
-Strong frame exhibits little flex, especially with cover bolted on.
- Room for a full size GPU while providing adequate ventilation.
-120mm fan for an AIO liquid cooler for high performance builds.

Cons: -It didn't cook my breakfast for me.

Other Thoughts: I modified this chassis to accommodate a full size ATX PSU while still having a liquid cooler and full size GPU. The amount of power in such a small space is astonishing, and people are in awe over it's size, which is smaller than a shoe box. The high quality finish and overall structural integrity make this case an excellent value for the $39.99 I paid for it. Highly recommended.

3 out of 5 eggsQuality issues with front panel

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Form factor

Cons: Front panel is one of the worst I've dealt with

- The power button frequently gets stuck in the depressed position.
- The panel does not align well with the metal cover.
- A screw securing the front panel connectors was stripped on my unit and it would turn freely.
- Front panel LED was held in place with hot glue. It eventually came off and the LED became loose.

I actually paid Silverstone to get a replacement front panel but guess what? Power button got stuck again!

5 out of 5 eggsFine Vanilla SFF Case

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Silverstone
Small
Solid
Cheap
Optional rubber legs to glue on yourself

Basically, great for the budget build I used it for:
Athlon 5350 Kabini
AsRock AM1H-ITX
GSkill NS series 4GB 1600
SeaSonic SS-300SFD
Mushkin ECO2 120GB

Cons: No dust filters

Other Thoughts: The HDD activity LED immediately fell out when I opened the case up, but it was just a matter of supergluing it back in. No biggie.

The front panel cables HAVE to cross the fan area to reach the mobo headers, perhaps they should have been put onto the left side of the front panel? Just a bit of an obstruction where one doesn't have to be. All the Sugos with front panel connectors have them on the right, so I guess it's for consistency.

The finish on the outside of the case is a fingerprint magnet.

All in all, I'm happy with it. I use a SG07-BW for my main PC and I do prefer the integrated PSU case layout over the "PSU over mobo" layout, but for a PSU-less case this is exactly what I expected for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, small and cheap case with some minor issues

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Very inexpensive and supports most 3rd party SFX power supplies (be careful not to exceed 100mm depth if you plan on using the slim optical drive bay).

Classic clean look, and included 120mm case fine is very quiet.

Cons: Front bezel is very low quality plastic (charge us $5 more Silverstone, and put an aluminum bezel on this and it would be almost perfect!). The unit I received was not flat, but rather slightly concave. This lead to "too big" gaps on the sides of the bezel between the sheet metal cover and the plastic. Almost 1/4" gap on the edges which really is pretty poor fit and finish in my eyes...

Other Thoughts: Can't complain for the price paid, but I'd rather pay a couple dollars more if I knew that higher quality plastics and/or aluminum was used.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, great company

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: Extremely good ITX cases; build quality is great and they are very durable. Assembly is easy. Lasts forever.

Cons: Not much, really. The version without the included power supply doesn't have the power supply support bar included, but it's not really necessary.

Other Thoughts: I have over 200 of these cases. Most were purchased as the original SG05 model with included power supply, but these days they sell the case and power supply separately. It's cheaper to buy them separately anyway; the only thing you don't get is a support bar for the power supply, but it's not really necessary.

When USB3 became a thing, Silverstone conveniently offered a USB3 upgrade kit. We still upgrade our cases to USB3 when we recycle out an old motherboard. Most companies would have told us to buy new cases.

Recently we noticed that a couple of the power LEDs had burned out on the oldest cases we have (which are six years old). Called up Silverstone and they sent us some new switch boards even though they don't officially offer them on their web site. Can't argue with service like that.

To date out of the 200+ we have had one failed power supply and one noisy front fan. Both of which were easily replaced. We still use the original batch of cases we bought six years ago, with USB3 upgrades and new boards and such.

4 out of 5 eggsNot for the Noob at Heart - but Sweet when complete!

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-LITE Black SECC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)

Pros: *Unlike a lot of ITX cases, actually quite "mini"
*Effective Cooling despite the clutter
*Fairly quiet (see con)
*Fit a GeForce 970 (9.5 inch) pretty easily
*Feels Sturdy / Transportable
*Can accommodate high performance parts
*USB and audio headers in the front were decent quality
*Comes with the screws you need for slimdrive, Mobo, and 2 hard drives, as well as nice rubber feet and a cable tie I couldn't use.
*Bright Blue LED

Cons: *Bright Blue LED
*Difficult installation process (see other thoughts)
*No Filter on GPU Intake side
*Plastic Face Scratched easily, as did internal paint job
*Must dissemble cover and plastic face to reach tough to remove fan filter
*Hope your fan / HDDs, Mobo never need replacing - you will be disassembling most / the whole box if that happens!
*Not sized well for Silverstone's own modular PSUs
*No real cable management options if you are using all drive bays + adding an awesome GPU
*Some revisions to the drive trays would have made it a lot easier to get power cables to the GPU or install in general
*Stock Intel HS and Fan are the noisiest part of the case

Other Thoughts: Do not buy the Sugo 05 case without patience and planning. I spent a full day putting mine together, with some sticking points that included a stuck fan (discovered at end of process, oiy), a BARELY fitting PSU, and cable smooshing that made me think I was going to break something for sure. It is critical to do things in order, but in my case, I did the PSU last. The worst thing is knowing that you mostly will be assembling all of it and then praying that no parts were DOA.

Probably the weakest link in the design are the drive trays. The optical drive should be much more "open", or even cornered to make it easier to route cables (and don't forget your slimdrive ADAPTER). I almost cut mine up but luckily didn't have to. Luck seemed to have a lot to do with my build. The 2.5 inch bay seems unnecessarily large and there is 1 mounting option. With a 3.5 inch drive added to the mix, the Sata cable / power cables were a nightmare to get in. While the Sugo can take a large GPU, you will sure think otherwise when working with the minimal clearances between it and the drives. Eliminating the 3.5 inch bay would not matter, the 2.5 inch drive is butted up close as well. Cable length was less an issue than girth - I would have bought Silverstone's set of flat cables if they could accommodate 3 Sata drives on one cord like the stock cables did. BTW the perpendicular orientation of the Slim drive to the HDDs makes some added length necessary so be aware of that.

All told, the case scared me, made me bleed, and resisted my ambitions to have the ultimate mini gaming box. If you aren't absolutely committed to small size, (my second and third choice was the Raven "XBOX" or ASROCK M8), I would certainly not mind having had another inch in every direction!

But the Sugo can do what it says it can do, and all assembled and running, I have already begun to forgive its sins. It is adorable and mighty at the same time. But Silverstone, if you are listening, it is time for some "modernization". An aluminum face, better clearance for the PSU, and a rethink of the CPU vent could make for a much classier, easier to work with, and quieter case. I'd at minimum revise the drive tray to accommodate 2-3 2.5 inch drives, and re-orient them to make cabling easier. I'd pay even more for better "dust proofing".
