5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case is ingenious. It's as small as a case can possibly get and still fit a microATX motherboard, 3.5" hard drive (or dual 2.5"), and PCI card. Why more companies aren't designing cases like this, I can't understand. Certainly, there must be more demand for SFF cases that eschew the typical bulky, hot, noisy internal power supplies and needless 5¼" optical drive bays.

There are a few cases that meet this demand—the Antec ISK110 or Habey EMC-600, for example—but they'll only accept an ITX board, 2.5" drives, and have no PCI slots. With this case, you can ditch the 5¼" bay and internal PSU without having to give up your high-capacity 3.5" drives, mATX boards (at ¼–½ the price of comparable ITX), and the vast array of PCI accessories—including low-power video cards like the Radeon R7 240.

It's the perfect middle ground between super-compact, feature-limited ISK110-style cases, and the bulkier Shuttle/Sugo-style boxes. This unique combination of utility, and compact, near-silent operation sets it apart from anything else currently available. I really hope this style of case catches on.

Cons: The included power adapter is actually only 60w. This important detail is buried in the specs under: "Built-in 120W DC power board with 12V/5A power adapter"—something you'll only understand if you know that volts x amps = watts.

iStarUSA needs to make this explicitly clear with something like: "120w-capable PSU, 60w power adapter included". I encouraged them to do so in an email, but months later, and there's still no mention of "60w" anywhere.

Fortunately, they agreed that this was rather unfair and sent me a 120w adapter, free of charge.

Other Thoughts: To use the PCIe slot, you'll need a 27mm tall riser card (e.g. Logic Supply PCIX-1A or StarTech PEX16RISER). For PCI, it's 20mm.

You could use one of your secondary slots with a PCI extension cable as long as there's still room for your card where the cable comes out from the board. I have a x1 wi-fi card plugged into the 3rd slot this way.

Also, use a card no wider than 7cm (low profile ready), otherwise it could end up touching the PSU board.

I've posted some photos on Flickr, but Newegg doesn't allow links, so you'll have to Google "flickr xichael".

2 out of 5 eggsIf you need PCI-Slot card steer clear

Pros: The case is really nicely build and very strong, the psu is plenty for anything you put in it.

Cons: The pci-slot is to small. I have tried half and full height cards and nothing will fit at all. It has a little tab inside to hold the cards down but that don't work its too thin. Not like it would matter as the card will most definitely touch most mobos IO panel and be to long.

Other Thoughts: if it was a half inch wider this case would be a GREAT case for a router as it is that pci-slot hinders it alot. Now i have to figure out what to do with it .
