2 out of 5 eggsHot and Loud

Pros: Nice looking.. Small.. It works.. Sortof.

Cons: The case fan that was included was LOUD. Not a great option for a HTPC.. Ended up unplugging the fan and just leaving the case open to keep it cool as it would overheat otherwise... Still kinda loud even with only the CPU fan.

Power supply not powerful enough to power a DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: Ended up purchasing a larger case with a much quieter fan and better power supply.. This case may work if you're into customizing and purchasing additional components.. Otherwise, I'd look elsewhere.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Case, Bad PSU

Pros: Looks very nice under my plasma. My GF didn't even know it was a computer

Cons: Loud case fan. PSU failed like others have posted after about 100+ hours of usage.

Other Thoughts: First post just to inform consumers of weak power supply.

Gave it 3 eggs do to the cheap price compare to good craftsmanship of the case, but took away 2 eggs for power supply fail

4 out of 5 eggsLittle Case that could

Pros: Small size, it is about the size of a DVD player. Heavy-Duty construction. Included 150W Power Supply with multiple connectors. Harddrive and DVD drive tray easily removed. Room for either a 2.5 or a 3.5 harddrive as well as a slim DVD drive. All front panel connections and drive bay hidden by a hinged panel. Does not look like a computer case at first look.

Cons: The included fan is LOUD. LED lights are a tad bright.

Other Thoughts: Bought this case from a local supplier in Japan for my latest HTPC build, and have been nothing but impressed. The construction of this case is sturdy and intuitive. All screws that you need to remove to disassemble this case are in plain sight eliminating the find the hidden panel screw game. The drive tray removes all in one peice, and offers the flexitbility to use either a 3.5 hard drive or a 2.5 hard drive. I went with the smaller drive to maximumize airflow in the case. A nVidia Ion motherboard fits into this case like a glove. The only complaint I have is that the included fan is very loud. Purchasing an aftermarket fan corrected this and still kept the cooling airflow. I also found that the LED lights were a little too bright for my taste, so I disconnected them. I highly reccomend this case for custom HTPC builds. Its fit, finish, build quality, and looks make it a desireable addition to any entertainment system.

4 out of 5 eggsReally Nice Little Case

Pros: Really nice finish on sides and top when compared to most cases. Doesn't scratch easily. LEDs are muted and coverable if you don't like a lot of light pollution on your HTPC case. I really like the mini-fan that's there if I need it, but not taking up too much room if I don't.

Cons: Top front part is plastic and scratches INCREDIBLY easily. Not a big deal to me, but may be to some.

Also the two screws that hold the hard drive / slim disc bracket in place are very specific to that application. I had one get away from me and can't find a suitable replacement that will allow me to get the top cover closed (the screw head must be completely flat or the top of the case buckles).

Other Thoughts: If you're not butterfingered, you're golden. I pulled the PSU out because I'm using a board with a brick. It's nice to have that little bit of extra room for an internal USB dongle for a wifi gamepad.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a case that could use my Mini ITX Intel Atom board and my slimline DVD drive* (see: Cons).

Cons: *Regarding the slimline DVD drive, the opening in the plastic bezel of the case was just a bit misaligned, rubbing against the disc's bezel so tightly on the top that the drive couldn't even pop open when fastened into the mount. An hour with a rotary tool fixed the problem, but that shouldn't have been a problem in the first place.

As others have noted, this case's cooling system is remarkably loud. However, despite others' comments, the PSU fan seems to be fairly quiet; only the main cooling fan was loud.

Other Thoughts: In addition to boring out a slightly larger hole for the slimline disc drive, I replaced that little whiny cooling fan with an ever-so-slightly larger fan left over from this case's predecessor that somehow miraculously fit quite snuggly, though I only managed to fasten it with one screw. After a bit of work, this case is working out for me, but it does somewhat disappoint me that all that work was necessary just for what's more or less a nettop.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Power Supply

Pros: Sleek, attractive.

Cons: Power supply failed after about 40 hours of usage.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this, it was "Rosewill" brand. Bought this as a HTPC. Only used it a few times to watch movies. Half way through a movie yesterday, it just died. Bad power supply. only 30 day warranty on it, so I'm out.

3 out of 5 eggsInteresting case, bad PSU

Pros: Decently sized. Can fit boards that are slightly larger than Mini-ITX, barely.

Cons: 1) The PSU sucks, running just an Atom N330, it got very hot
2) As mentioned, slimline optical drives only
3) I found it easier to drill 4 holes and mount a HDD right to the case lid

Other Thoughts: I've moved my Atom system into another case (ironically, an enormous steel monstrosity that's over 2' tall) and will be turning this into an eSATA external drive enclosure. Some SATA to eSATA brackets, eSATA cables, and some 1 or 2TB drives, and a little modification to the PSU, and this case will have new life.

I also modified the PSU with a high flow fan, to prolong the life of the poor thing (I am still forced to use it right now due to another PSU failing). The PSU in general is designed horribly. The fan was garbage, and it's a blow through type fan, not draw through. A good draw through design would be much better... But this PSU is so cheap, it wouldn't matter anyway.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit!

Pros: - Looks good (albeit like a VCR from the 80s)
- Good flaps on the front
- Most edges are smooth

Cons: - Like another reviewer said, power cables are way long. With the mobo I used (ECS H55H-I), the power connector was right next to this case's power supply. Could have easily trimmed like 3 inches off.
- Same motherboard, the power switch connector was fairly far away, and it was tight to get the connection made. Don't know who to blame that on.
- Specs say there is an expansion slot on this. I should have looked at the pictures, but there is none. There does seem to be a screw hole on the case where you could maybe mount an expansion card, but it can't get to the outside world. It also seems dubious that a half height card would even fit under the HDD/OD tray, and then...
- The stock cooler on the Core i3 530 I bought doesn't fit underneath the HDD tray. It wouldn't bother me if I knew I had to get a slim cooler or something, but there is really no indication on the product page.

Other Thoughts: Pretty disappointed, and I guess this is the risk I took with a product this low cost. I had written a more verbose review the night I got it, but that didn't make it through.

I will be returning this case.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay, but needs some fixes.

Pros: The case was reasonably priced and affordable, it is light and does not take a lot of space.

Cons: I did not realize the slot for a DVD drive did not fit full size drives. That just about wasted my investment. Now I have to purchase a new one.

Other Thoughts: The power button was difficult to find. I searched for about twenty minutes before I realized it was the silver thing in the middle.

3 out of 5 eggsLouder Than Expected

Pros: Very small, fairly decent looking.

Cons: Slimline DVD drive, much much louder than I expected it to be

Other Thoughts: Overall, not bad. I think it would be better as a media centre PC where you did not have to listen to the loud hum of the power supply and the case fan. Very small, easy to build.
