1 out of 5 eggsI really like it, but...

Pros: It would like right at home in a home theater. It's pretty much silent even with the top off and me leaning over it. Pretty easy to install the motherboard (appropriate standoffs are already in there), power supply, and cable everything.

Cons: I don't know if this has effected others, but it would seem that the opening for the ODD is too small. I'm using the LG Blu-Ray drive (item # N82E16827136268) and it cannot open because of the front panel opening. It tries, but it ain't happening.

Screw holes are all over the place when it comes to the drive cage. They weren't so bad that I had to redrill them, but they are definitely off.

The Power LED doesn't light either. Not sure what's going on there. Checked and rechecked the cabling, but it doesn't work.

I can live with the last two, but the front panel disk drive opening... I'm trying to decide if I want to dremel it out or send this thing back.

Other Thoughts: It's a shame about the drive door. It has flaws, but the drive door problem is terrible.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good case

Pros: Looks great, definitely fits in with other A/V gear. Lots of drive storage, Not too big, but makes good use of space.

Cons: Somewhat bland looking, definitely needs the LCD screen. Documentation can be hard to follow. It is a little shallow front to back, so when buying a power supply, look for one that is on the smaller side for an easier install. Larger video cards may be an issue too.

Other Thoughts: Neither newegg or nmediapc's sites show a picture of the unit actually turned on. The ring next to the power switch glows blue, so it looks cool with the blue lcd screen if you get that. I did not have any issues with the holes not lining up that many of the other people seemed to have, everything went in smoothly and it was one of the easier builds I've done, even with the cramped space. Also, to confirm what other people have said, the drive bay now has the Blu-Ray logo, not the DVD logo as pictured.

3 out of 5 eggskeep looking

Pros: Looks pretty good
Front connectors and card readers are handy
Lots of internal hdd space
Regular power supply

Cons: That power button: so touchy
Insufficient cooling: space for only one addition fan, and it's a non standard size.
Awkward installation
Pretty deep (front to back)

Other Thoughts: I used this case for four years. I really don't like it. It feels and looks kinda cheap. You could do a lot worse but you can do a lot better.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good for the price

Pros: This case is pretty nice for the money. I got this case because it could fit a full size GPU, kind of. After getting the case didn't really think about it but the top of the case if you are using a full size GPU will hit the power connectors, lucky I had an old Evga GTX 570 that has them out the back and it fit.

Cons: This case has very little are flow, I knew this when I was picking it up but it could have been fixed. I actually cut out 2 80mm fan in the side where the GPU goes, and drilled holes to mount a top 120mm fan.

Cons

No room for GPU cables if they come out the side of your card, you will have to use a rear mount GPU power connected card, they are not easy to find but I did have one.

Not to many options for mounting fans without moding the case

Metal is kind of thin but it is a cheap case, once the top is on its pretty strong

Other Thoughts: Knowing all this before I got this case it’s ok for what I paid for it, wish it came with the LCD screen :(

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: Extremely nice case. I also own a SilverStone Media case, and I like this one MUCH better. The optical drive's cover plate shown in the images show DVD, However, I was very pleased to see that it has BluRay now. The case has a very nice design and is very sleek. I would recommend this case to any HTPC builder.

Cons: The only con I could find is that his unit's HD holes would not line up at all. It was difficult mounting drives, and I had to make a few holes of my own to mount various drive units.

Still worth the cost.

5 out of 5 eggsMedia PC

Pros: Excellent media pc case. Enough space for hard drives to make a media server and plenty of fans to help cool the case. Blends in well with my other home audio equipment.

Cons: Large video cards will not fit and only for micro atx. Do some research before buying a video card and board.

Other Thoughts: I order a Saphire 6570 2gb video card for 70 bucks fits perfect in the case. Running a 500 gb, 1.5tb and 2tb hard drive and cases stays around 40 C. Future purchase will be FM2 motherboard and cpu so I can run dual graphics.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Media Center PC Case

Pros: 1. Great look in a professional home theater setup.
2. Fans are really, really quite.
3. Good design with airflow in mind.
4. Rubber grommets included to help quite hard drives.

Cons: 1. Aluminum is thin and easy to bend out of shape.
2. Front cover does not fit flush and again is a little cheap feeling.
3. No Power Supply, though some may view this as a Pro.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. Overall a good HTPC case. If you can find it on sale ~$69 it is worth it. -1 Egg for the thin aluminum.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks, good, very functional.

Pros: Very nice piece of equipment, looks very professional particularly if paired with an LCD display. The front plastic is soft and not durable, so be careful when handling. The look of the front panel black brushed aluminum cover more than makes up for the front plastic. The fans are very quiet.

Cons: Plastic panel on front is not very durable. On arrival, the power switch had internal damage (repaired by me using epoxy putty), limited to mATX boards at most.

Other Thoughts: This was a very satisfying purchase. I have not once wished I had purchased one of the several dozen others I looked at before arriving at the decision to buy this one.

3 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: Relatively cheap, looks like it belongs in the entertainment center. There is just enough space inside for what you need (ATX mobo, full size video card if you like - I don't have one, spare hard drives).

Cons: Cheap construction. Things don't exactly line up the way they're supposed to. One of the feet on the bottom didn't have threads for the screw to go into. After 2.5 years of owning it, I finally just hot glued it in place.

The cover for the front ports has bent strangely and is difficult to open. The over-sized power button is not a volume knob (not a huge deal, but that's what it looks like).

Other Thoughts: It's just decent.
