4 out of 5 eggsgood but not great

Pros: this case was a replacement of another Nmedia HTPC case. the previous one would not take full size video cards. this one however does. has plenty of room for a micro or full size ATX motherboard. the case fans also seem quiet, or perhaps quiet enough.

Cons: well....where do I start. I'm using the case and it's fine. however I needed to do some extensive mods to the opening for the CD/blu ray drive. the front case bezel is made of aluminum and the opening is too small for an optical drive to fit through. this means I had to file down all four sides of the opening in order to mount the optical drive correctly.

as a result I ended up scratching the front bezel a few times as far as screw holes not lining up like others may have said, that seemed to be ok. I didn't have any difficulty with that.

Other Thoughts: the biggest problem was that optical drive opening in the front bezel. if you can get past that then the rest of the build should go pretty easy.

would I buy another? no. it was too much of a hassle to get that opening bigger since I had to use a metal file. took me over an hour to get it large enough. but unfortunately, there don't seem to be that many good HTPC cases and this seemed like the best of the bunch.

4 out of 5 eggsPleased

Pros: Nicely built chassis. I would buy it again even due to the con's listed below. Used it as htpc to get rid of cable box and cable.

Cons: The case would have gotten 5 stars if it had not been for the extra two hours to install the components. The main issue is like others have had it is installing the DVD or Blue Ray drive. It will not fit flush in the optical drive hole. Had to use a file to get it to fit nice and neatly without damaging the beautiful aluminum case plate. Overall it added an extra 1-2 hours to the installation. So make sure your handy and have a file in your toolbox.

Other Thoughts: Overall fun challenging build. I wouldn't suggest it for people new to computer building. Case is cramped with atx board, 4 hard drives and 2 video card.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Looks great in the living room. Room for 6 Hard Drives plus an Optical. Lots of metal.

Cons: Sharp edges inside and out, clumsy people like me can cut themselves opening the front flip down panel to access USB ports.
Lights are pretty bright, annoying if you fall asleep in your bean bag chair. No IR remote or available USB ports for an addon unless you keep the flip down panels open.

Other Thoughts: I have a 5 disk RAID array plus the sytem drive running in this box, all 3.5 drives. Didn't have any problems with screws lining up and power supply slid right into place. Not able to dress the cabling as nice as I would like because of the hard drive orientations in the cassette but, everything fits and works, just ugly when you open the case.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: For a cheap case it really is surprising. Looks great in my stereo area and it is just nice and is very pro looking

Cons: Wiring can be a tight place and stuffing 6 full size 3.5 drives is very tight. it is a shame for just a little cost more they don't include the digital panel that you have to order separately, kind a of shame. Oh the HDD LED is not seen until it taken out and scratch the paint out.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case - but plan ahead

Pros: Aluminum front panel, plenty of build room, holds multiple hard drives, great looks, sturdy construction

Cons: poor design with regard to screw holes. Plastic grill for cards cheap and easy to break. instructions poor and not helpful

Other Thoughts: plan ahead for power supply installation, screws may not line up or you may have to reverse the direction. Flip down panel in front may not fit within media center for some, measure carefully. Get a usb IR reader for your remote that sits on top, easy to use. Overall, a great case for the money, I would buy again - it just needs some finesse to work.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC Case!

Pros: Nice look (just like the rest of my a/v equipment).
Easy to install (one exception).
Nice front end options (USB ports, IEEE 1394, card reader).

Cons: No IR receiver. This is an HTPC case. Your going to want a remote. A receiver added just to the right of the reset button would have been great.
Adding expansion cards was tough because of the plastic grill. Mine snapped off while trying to get card installed.
The doors are a bit tough to open, but provide a sleek look.

Other Thoughts: I think the case has been around for a while, but a USB 3 port on the front would be a nice upgrade.

2 out of 5 eggsNot the best

Pros: It looks nice in my rack. Solid all-metal construction. HDD and optical drive mounting was convenient as the unit swings out.

Cons: Where do I begin?

First, my PSU didn't quite fit as the fan grill would hit the rear 80mm fan on the case. Bending the grill on the PSU caused the 80mm fan to bind making it useless. The other fan is fine.

The built-in card reader doesn't work. I tried plugging it in every available USB header but failed to be recognized.

The HDD LED in the front isn't visible. You can see it working from behind the case but not visible from the front.

MANY SHARP CORNERS!!! Not only inside the case but the rear expansion slots.

Due to the front USB connectors being behind the lower door, it needs to be remained open for my infrared USB dongle to work. Would've been nice to have one built-in.

The optical drive doesn't mount flush in the front. Thankfully it sits behind the upper door so it's not visible but it also has sharp corners on the opening.

Some of the screw holes don't quite match up. They fit but are not straight. It is also missing some holes to fit my motherboard which makes plugging in cables a challenge. The board hangs on the right side and any pressure causes the board to flex.

While the included fans are a nice touch and are silent, they don't move much air.

Other Thoughts: This case could be an overall nice box for an ATX HTPC but fails in quality control.

5 out of 5 eggsPleased with purchase

Pros: The motherboard offset screws lined up perfectly on my ATX board. I read reviews complaining of this. Case is very quiet too. Very pleased. Easy to put together too.

Cons: none to speak

4 out of 5 eggsMedia Center Computer

Pros: Nice looking case. Nice tilt open rack to install the hard drives. Can close the panel with a DVD/Blu-Ray disc in and not see the drive light blink while watching the movie, I also disconnect the HDD light for the same reason. Only the blue power light stays on steady.

Cons: After I opened the top front panel to open the Blu-Ray player, I cut my finger on the upper edge of the panel. This panel was machine with a very sharp edge. I took a file to all the edges (upper and lower panel). I notice while opening the case up that the screw holes does not line up, had to force it a little to get the screws back in. Installing the Blu-Ray drive the screw holes was too far off. Had to drill out the support bracket and move it over an 1/8" and pop rivet it back in place. No provision to mount a 2 1/2" SSD drive without an adapter, made for 3 1/2" drive only. Has more fan noise than I wanted, but watching Media Center you can't hear it. The tilt open rack should have the lower racks removable for easy repairs/upgrade.

Other Thoughts: I knew from the start the case was big, its bigger than my audio amp. Didn't expect a poor fitting case. Not enough quality control during manufacturing. This could have been a great case.

3 out of 5 eggsAcceptable

Pros: Case is very large and easy to work with. Had no issue fitting any of my parts inside it. This case my be larger than what you need for a HTPC. However it is one of the few good full ATX cases out their.

Cons: As others have stated this case workmanship could have been of a higher quality. Screw holes not quite matching up. You can make everything fit just need to will it into place.

Intake fan makes a clicking noise and is much louder than the two exhaust fans in the back. Brought a new fan have yet to install but again poor quality.

Hard drive bay I can see 4 hard drives easily fitting in. 6 drives? I agree with others heat and GPU may impact how many drives you can install. If you have less than 4 drives you are fine. More than that look elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: Just keep in mind the size. This will be by far the largest 'media device' you will have on your shelf.

This is the first and probably last time I will buy this brand based solely on the quality.
