Computers have revolutionized the home entertainment system, and Nmedia PC has responded to the need with the HTPC 200BA. This premium case starts with the basics, giving room for a 5.25" external drive (which is marked with the "DVD" label, but a DVD drive is not included) and three internal hard drives. It has two standard USB ports and two Audio ports right up front, but then it went to the next level.

Tucked behind a decorative and protective door are all the multimedia I/O goodies that could be thought of. A Firewire port for transferring video from your digital camcorder, AV cable jacks, an s-video jack for video capture and editing. Just above that is the all important integrated 9 in 1 card reader for your digital camera, PSP, and handheld's external memory.

In the dominant position in the upper left is an LED display and hot keys. The display will tell you what the overall temp in the case is, what temp the CPU itself is running at, and what speed the fans are running at. The hot keys will allow for setting the speeds of the fans. This case finishes off by combining the strengths of aluminum, plastic, and steel in an engineering achievement worth your attention and your money.

  • newegg MicroATX System with 4 Drive Bays Featuring one external 5.25" drive bays and three internal 3.5" drive bays, the nMEDIAPC HTPC 200BA provides a good level of expandability as a MicroATX HTPC case.
  • newegg Effective Cooling The nMEDIAPC HTPC 200BA features dual 60mm rear fans, one side air duct and one 80mm silent HHD fan to effectively control system temperatures.
  • newegg Universal Internal IR Rack With internal IR rack, Microsoft MCE remote receiver can be embedded into nMEDIAPC HTPC 200BA to eliminate unsightly external cabling.
  • newegg S/PDIF Output Jack S/PDIF output enables digital audio transfers to your home audio equipment.
  • newegg LCD Module The front panel LCD module provides surveillance of CPU and case temperature and control of CPU fan speed.
  • newegg Convenient Front I/O Panel The convenient front I/O panel enables easy access to two USB 2.0 ports, one IEEE 1394 port, two audio ports, 9-in-1 card reader, one S-Video port and AV ports.

4 out of 5 eggsNice buy

Pros: TONS of connectors on the front, had enough room for all my parts. Looks very sleek, LCD is bright and readable. Came with more than enough screws for what I needed, as well as bundling cables and ties. Most every connector was well labeled. Plenty of ventilation and fans. One of the fans uses the CPU Fan pins, and comes with an adapter to plug your CPU fan into in case you only have a single 4-pin fan port on your mobo.

Cons: While the case looks great, it feels rather cheap (which for the price, is not really a surprise). The flip down door and DVD drive door feel like they could break easily. Like others, my DVD Drive didn't align with the opening so I had to remove my drive's tray cover. With a full ATX power supply, there is precious little room between the PS and the hard drive rack.

Other Thoughts: I love the case. All of the cons were acceptable for a product of this price. If you know what you're doing it won't be too hard to build into it. Just follow the suggested build order in the instructions and you'll be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Great looking, Front Panel Crystal Fontz Display w/ temps for CPU and Case. 1394, RCA Jacks, All-in-one Card Reader. SPDIF on the back. Nice 2 60mm and 1 80mm fans for cooling, Also, Nice HDD bay supporting 3 drives.

Cons: It will be kinda tricky getting your optical drive in, also, poor and little directions. Molex connectors forfans need the pins put back in them, flimsy optical bay button.

Other Thoughts: This is a great case if you can get it working, you get for what you pay for.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice looking case. At first I thought that I'd have problems with heat given the tight fit of all my components, but it has been running cool for a couple of months now 24/7.

Pay close attention to the assembly instructions and everything will go smoothly.

Cons: The LCD display is too bright and I've not been able to find a way to dim it! It lights up the room! When I move it to my theater room, I WILL need to cover it up.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Looking

Pros: Looks good, built in card reader, 3 internal HD bays.

Cons: USB connector to the card reader has a paper sticker label on it which shows the D+ and D- in the reverse order that they should be. Manual specifies the color code which is correct and disagrees with the sticker. It works so I'd say the sticker is wrong. USB connector to the front USB ports is labeled correctly. Also the front fold down door closes and latches fine but sticks on opening. It seems a bit cheap too so if you plan on using that particular feature a lot I'd look at something else because it will eventually break if used daily.

Other Thoughts: I used a large Xclio stable power 500W supply and had no issues with HD clearance. I had more issues with the massive cable bundle that came on that supply. I'd recommend a smaller supply though still just for ease. Also a short format DVDRAM drive gives more clearance inside the case. I used an LG GSA-H62NK which worked nice. Also remove the front of the DVD tray (you're supposed to when there's another external door thats why it comes off) and don't tighten it down until it's in the right position and you shouldn't have any issues with the DVD/CD.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Nice layout, not too tight. There is some aluminum that covers the plastic door on the front of the case. I didn't have any problem with the DVD mounting. If you push it in too far the case door will catch on the open button mechanism. All you have to do is move the whole drive cage back until it is out of the way. The display is not overly bright so it isn't annoying, nice touch. I didn't have any problems with my power supply, of course you don't need a monster power supply.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I was a little aprehensive because of the bad reviews but it turns out that most of the problems listed are most likely lack of experience. Nice Case.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Looking HTPC Case Available - minimal caveats

Pros: This was my first HTPC build (first ever PC build from scratch I should say). After looking at cases for a month strait, this is the best looking case with versatile features for the money. It looks right at home with other A/V equipment. All the inputs behind the flap provide easy front access (vs. on the side) when needed, hidden when not in use. No quality issues in the four months I've been using it. I would definitely recommend this case.

Cons: Just a few installation quirks that can be easily addressed. First follow the order shown in the documentation, things are a bit tight. The power connectors for the fans/LCD panel are a bit cheap. Some pins pushed out the back of the connectors, but went back in with a gentle nudge from some needle nose pliers. My nVidia Graphics card touches the top when closed, so you need one with a fan to get some air circulating on that side of the case.

Other Thoughts: Other than the cheap power connectors, I had NO problems getting everything installed and lined up. Remember to remove the front cover of the CD/DVD drive (usually just slide it strait up), then push it against the front so you feel it 'click' when pushing the Open button, hold it there while tightening the screws. You can now replace the LCD panel with a programmable one that compatible with Linux and Windows. Overall it's a good buy, the looks and features (9-in-1 reader/ A/V capture ports) far outweigh any installation quirks.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case for the price

Pros: Nice looking case with many nice features.

Cons: Someone else mentioned the CD drive didn't align properly, and I have the same problem. I was able to get it to open if I shimmed up the back of the CD rack so it tilts down slightly. Also needed to shim the rack to mount the MCE IR receiver inside the case so it fits easily.

Other Thoughts: Neither of my cons I consider a show stopper, but I am capable of tweaking the build to my liking. It may require a few tweaks to get it all built right.

5 out of 5 eggsI really like this case

Pros: This is my second HTPC build, but first for primary home theater use. I purchased this based off the the positive reviews and I have to say that I am completely satisfied with my purchase. I combined this with a Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H, G Skill 2gb ram, AMD 6400+, Hauppauge 1600, ATI 550 pro running Vista Ultimate Media Center. Excellent combo.

Cons: I'm not too familiar with running cpu temps and case temps, but I think this seems to run a little warm. My CPU is around 60 celc while running OTA HD.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely purchase this case again and also recommend it fully.
