4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Case is very quiet, enough room to do what you need in a basic small case. Pretty decent build quality.

Cons: The power cables are way too long for such a small case. The length could be half of what they are and still be enough.

Other Thoughts: Unlike some others who have had trouble with the optical drive door, I had none. Perhaps they made more room for the dvd tray or something.

2 out of 5 eggsNot pleased with the CD door at all.

Pros: It seems pretty well thought out, especially with the power supply in the front. Nice and quiet. My kids think it looks great.
Excellent delivery, fast service from always!

Cons: I had to break three eggs because of the CD door. I had assumed that the tidy looking door over the CD tray was going to snap onto the edge of the CD tray, replacing the stock piece. Instead, the CD tray is supposed to force its way to open a spring loaded door. My brand new CD/DVD isn't powerful enough to open it, so Ive had to temporarily rig up a small loop of thread to open the door. Then, once the door is open, the button can't be pushed because the door covers it when its in the open position. then, using a pencil eraser to reach the button to retract the tray, it gets hung up on the open door and will not close.

Other Thoughts: If anyone has an experience or idea about the Optical drive door or Hinge arrangement, please speak up. I'm thinking of cutting off the hinge entirely and finding a way to attach the door directly to the front edge of the CD tray.

4 out of 5 eggsGood HTPC Case

Pros: -Decent amount of room for an ITX case. I know a lot of people complain about it being a bit tight inside, but that's the point.
-Quiet fans. I don't notice any noise really, especially compared to my old V1 xbox that I was using as a media center.
-Looks nice. I had wanted to get the all black version, but it was sold out with no in stock eta, and this one was on sale. Even the wife likes the looks of it.

Cons: -Power supply wires are a bit too long. It's kind of a mess inside the case right now. I was worried because the power wires go out right over my CPU, but it's been running for almost 24hrs straight and the CPU is plenty cool.

Other Thoughts: Works great with the Zotac IONITX-G-E board, and my 500gb WD Caviar Green drive. Like I said, very quiet. I can't even hear it over my TV, and can barely hear the cooling fan right next to it.

3 out of 5 eggsBad Packaging

Pros: The case has a very nice finish. Small size that's perfect for my entertainment center. Enough room for everything the case description says.

Cons: The bag of screws came apart in the package and every screw was spread around. I lost some of them and the worst part is one actually got inside of the power supply somehow and it took me FOREVER to get it out. Also, two of the studs that hold the front panel on were bent and almost broken. I kept it because in the end I got it all put together.

Other Thoughts: This was my first time building a computer and I was overall pleased. I would recommend this case, but hopefully yours comes in a little less damaged.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Box!

Pros: I took a chance since so few reviews were here...but this is a sweet enclosure for the intel atom 330 mb I put in it. I used sata on both dvd/cd unit and hard drive since I was afraid an ide cable would block airflow. It all worked and I was up and running in very little time. The instructions are minimal, but self explanatory... all pictures. PSU and box fan are quiet. The enclosure has lots of vent holes right where they are needed. The rear fan moves the air up and over the mb and in thru the front over the hard drive. The powersupplyunit is at the front which makes it very easy to install to the psu. Overall, I really like this box.

Cons: A minor inconvenience, but, just remove the power supply to make installing the mb so much easier. It's just 4 screws. Speaking of PSU... I agree with another reviewer...not sure how I would ever replace it. Also, the cd pushing open the enclosures plastic door seems a little harsh...can always take the enclosure's door off.

Other Thoughts: I'm happy NewEgg uses UPS --- I'm out in the sticks and no one else seems to be able to find me... always takes the others one extra day.

4 out of 5 eggsMini-ITX case

Pros: Nice finish, plenty of room, decent airflow.

Cons: Would have been nice to be able to order without the power supply since I didn't need that component.

Other Thoughts: I used this case with a Zotac-Ion A motherboard which has onboard dc power, so I was able to remove the case power supply. With this, I had a lot of room to work with.

4 out of 5 eggsA great mini-ITX case

Pros: One of the only mini-ITX cases that doesn't place the power supply over the CPU heat sink.

The rear 80mm fan does a good job of removing excess heat from the case.

It takes full size DVD and hard drives. Better performance that laptop parts and more choices.

Cons: The power supply measures 65 x 65 x 150mm. Good luck finding another one if it fails.

The power supply exhausts heat directly into the case. Not a big deal since there is pleanty of ventilation.

Due to the small size, cable management is difficlult. Don't even think about using an IDE DVD drive if you want to maintain airflow.

Other Thoughts: I hate the current trend towards glossy "piano finish" on everything. It's a dust and fingerprint magnet.

An e-SATA prort would have been a nice addition to the back of the case for those of us with extra mobo connectors.
