5 out of 5 eggsRikku HTPC case review

Pros: this case has been excellent for what i needed it to do and looks good on my media shelf and got a amplifier look that i was going for i really enjoy this case once i had everything in it and installed into place

Cons: i noticed as well the HDD led not being noticeable as well and a small difficulty with getting the drive in place

Other Thoughts: despite small problems this case does have i would still recommend this case to friend who are looking for a decent looking budget HTPC case

1 out of 5 eggsHTPC CASE NMEDIAPC|HTPC 5000S RT

Pros: Case is well laid out with room for everything including decent cable management

Cons: HD LED light does not work, access cover is spring loaded to allow easy opening but this feature does not work. Access door will not open on its own but must be pried open.

Other Thoughts: This product arrived with scratches to the front panel and will be highly visible when installed in the media cabinet. This product must have been a previous return and Newegg failed to perform a proper inspection before returning to inventory. I expected much more from this product and from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsNice htpc case for the price

Pros: Very inexpensive but looks expensive. The flip-down USB/SD card reader cover on my unit was metal and closes nice and flush. It opens and closes easily. Other owners had issues with this cover. I wonder if they fixed this in later models because mine is great. Fans are quiet for their size. Takes a standard atx power supply. My DVD cover works fine with my Blue Ray optical drive.

Cons: Very sharp edges inside. Be careful and make sure you've had your tetanus shot! The material inside is cheap but hey, no one will see it and I'm sure they had to cut corners to keep the price down. I'm fine with that. Does not have pre-drilled holes for SSD. Had to use an adapter. Needs another intake fan.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had another optical drive bay instead of the face designed for the nMedia LCD read-out. I purchased that as well and it's total garbage. I'd much rather install my own lcd/fan control multi purpose face in an open drive bay. They should update the optical drive cover to say Blue Ray. I imagine everyone building an HTPC now a days will have a Blue Ray drive. Holds 4 hard drives, but 2 spots have no air flow and HDD's will run hot in these spots.

5 out of 5 eggsRikku's review

Pros: excellent looking case easy to get the board in if you know which screws they want ya to use some say they dont like the case while i find this one case a good one I would recommend this one to a friend

Cons: one of the screw holes for the DVD drive was not properly done but still enjoy it

Other Thoughts: I like this case and would recommend it to a friend this case could use some more USB ports in the front and a way to upgrade front USB's to USB 3.0

3 out of 5 eggsMedicore purchase

Pros: Looks fairly nice; there is room for full-size PCI-E cards (great for a gaming card inside the HTPC).

Front panel has 3x USB, eSATA and a card reader alerady,

Cons: Obviously cheap construction, flimsy front panel cover that "sticks" when you try to open/close it (there needs to be a third hinge right below the lock switch). Case cover barely fits over PCI-E cards - if the card has a large fan or requires you to connect the power cables on the out-facing edge, you're sh*t-outta-luck. Drive holes were not precisely drilled; required force and much cursing to properly mount HDD and optical drive.

Other Thoughts: Case looks nice; but if you plan to be using the front panel it'll cause a headache. It seems the case was designed to be "good enough" and not a solid "good". Would not buy from nMedia again.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fans are quiet, overall looking is okay.

Cons: the quality is not so great. for example the 5" bay for optical drive is not well installed. I had to use significant force to insert my dvd drive; and the positioning holes are not accurate. The open/close button on the front panel touches the open/close button on DVD drive, so that the DVD opens itself each time when the computer boots up.

Other Thoughts: not recommanded.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Case

Pros: Nice looking, plenty of front ports, fits full size atx psu, rubber mounts for hdd's.

Cons: Stock airflow is 2x60mm fans in the back + one 90mm on the side that ends up getting blocked because of cables. Ventilation holes at the top do not help at all. Felt like on oven at times holding my hand just inches above the top of the case. This case is annoying to work with. The holes for expansion card support are not cut properly. On top of this, because of the way the expansion card slots are cut into the case, the entire back end of the case ends up being pretty flimsy. The metal drive bay that holds 5.25"/3.5" drives is awkward to work with and is hard to get back on without adjustment. Screw holes for your drives are not precise!

Other Thoughts: All my components ended up cooking inside this case. Why oh why didn't they include another fan on the other side? It looks like they thought about it.
If you end up getting this case, make sure to get a low-profile video card.

4 out of 5 eggsRecommended for HTPC

Pros: Use a regular ATX power supply - very important for cheap/easy replacement if needed. Required for high performance GPUs if used in build.

Quality construction. Lightwieght, durable, polished finish. No sharp edges. Plenty of working room for a HTPC case.

Great price for the quality and enough room for most GPUs (Sapphire 4860 fits just nice).

Stays cool even during extended gaming sessions.

Cons: Front panel a little difficult to open and close - the catch takes more pressure to operate than I'd have expected. Still, it works smoothly.

The front panel hook ups are a terrific feature but all of the wires do add to clutter inside the case. Careful cable management is a must. Case comes with cable ties and stick-on cable holders to help with that.

Very large GPUs will probably not fit in this case. The Sapphire 4860 fit PERFECTLY as would cards with the same dimensions but the 58xx series ATI cards and the Nvidia 460 and up may not.

Other Thoughts: The front panel does sit flush and looks great when closed - saw some reviews indicating that was not the case but the one I got does not have that issue at all.

The case does not include the LCD screen. It is sold separately Item#:N82E16811996003. LCD looks great and really finishes off case but admittedly not all that useful.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks Nice, Hard to Work With

Pros: It looks nice, and has solid construction. It is also very light. Plenty of front ports. Pretty cheap.

Cons: The drive bracket is very hard to get back in once you get the drives loaded into it. In my setup, the bevel for my optical drive does not come off, and keeps getting caught on the optical drive door on the case. Also, I spent three hours trying, and I was not able to get the bracket to lock into place like the instructions said it should.

Optical drive bay door does not stay closed once you have the optical drive in. Can't seem to find a way to take it off, either.

Instructions are written in broken English. Makes it somewhat hard to understand.

Other Thoughts: I'd look elsewhere unless you are a very, very patient person. If I didn't already have all my components loaded into this case, I'd RMA it, as the drive bracket is pretty close to defective in my opinion.

I guess you get what you pay for.
