5 out of 5 eggsGreat with Harmon Kardon receiver

Pros: This case matches my Harmon Kardon receiver so it looks great in the component cabinet. The on-off knob/button has a blue light ring just like HK. Easy access from the top panel.

Cons: Difficult case to build into but I knew that before I ordered it. I didn't leave any blood so the edges are rolled OK. The cooling is not great but is adequate and would be no problem for a new build with an Ivy Bridge low voltage cpu. I can't close the front panel door with a tiny Logitech unifying receiver USB adapter. No screw holes to secure the DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: I knew going in that this case was not going to be up to Corsair (my favorite) or Antec standards for cooling and the shape necessitates a good bit of fiddling to get it together. It took longer to put together than normal. I'd buy it again, however, because of the appearance. When you measure your cabinet, remember that the cables will add to the depth by 3" or so. This case would be ideal for a new build with low voltage Ivy Bridge for someone with Harmon Kardon components. I rated it a 5 because I am very happy with the appearance.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks nice but has flaws

Pros: I'm giving this 3.5 stars

Now it's built I'm for the most part pleased with it. It looks pretty good, it is very similar to slightly older Harman Kardon receivers so if you have one of those this is a no brainer

Cons: I think the designer was drunk towards the end. As others have mentioned one of the fan sots is partially covered, there is a vent almost the whole way down one side and the fan is placed in the one area with no vent? What is that about?

As other have said the little icons on the front are annoying, they make it look cheap, without them it would look much classier, will bust out the paint stripper at some point. Mine is updated so now the "DVD" drive has "BluRay" on the front... Whatever.
All of this is forgivable, what I can't forgive though in this day and age is tear off PCI slots. I would have preferred nothing there, I made the mistake of installing my motherboard then realised I had to uninstall it to take out the slots which don't come out that easy and would have damaged something. Take these out before you do anything. They are so irritating, I bent the super thin metal holding them in place so my PCI cards and graphics cards didn't go in smoothly.

Other Thoughts: There is simply no excuse for the use of tear off PCI slot covers. They need to be updated to what the rest of the world is using, everything else is forgivable as a minor quirk or inconvenience but I'm dropping all the stars over this issue. This would be a killer design if they got rid of the icons on the front, updated the cheap plasticky on button to an aluminum one, fixed the fan vent so the fan is more than 50% useable and get rid of the awful PCI tear off covers.
Now it's built I'm happy, but the above is bad design and penny pinching, silverstone offers better quality cases for the same coin, but I like the look of this one.

3 out of 5 eggsOK Case

Pros: Matches my Harman AVR 435 well enough, and is the same size. Most parts fit. seems solid ATX Sized

Cons: DOES NOT FIT full size pci legnth (12.283 inches) without cutting out drive cages.

Actual space from back of case to drive cages 9.6 inches.
(I cut mine to fit a Radeon 5850)

Other Thoughts: lots of holes in the outside of the case... makes it hard to create pressure or filter the intakes if air cooling... or keeping dust out in general.

Had to shim the DVD drive to clear the opening (save the metal from the expansion slots for it).

Should have another 5.25 door on it (there is room for it)

1 out of 5 eggsDefective

Pros: Plenty of 3.5 drive bays.

Cons: The front panel is really cheaply made. Mine arrived with a broken latch. It wasn't cracked or anything, it just doesn't latch properly because the latch hangs out of the case so the door will only close about 80% of the way.

Other Thoughts: I didn't mind it as much in the photo...but in person all of these little symbols they put on the front for no reason whatsoever really get on my nerves.

You can use this to play videos! Or listen to music! Or browse the web! Great, thanks...yes I know how computers work I don't need these pointless little logos to tell me. DVD! On the drive bay door. It's not a dvd drive...it's a drive bay door. Maybe I put a bluray or just a normal cd drive in there? Why does it say DVD?

The case itself is attractive, but you can tell that somebody higher up the chain than the guys who actually designed the case were responsible for all of the stupid writing and logos all over it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Beautiful design, easy installation.

Cons: Power button not a volume knob as it appears to be. doesn't come with lcd screen.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because laying my tower on it's side was fairly ugly in my entertainment center. This case is hot as it matches my existing components and fits my new blu-ray drive perfectly. I read alot of reviews about the LCD screen so I decided not to get it. don't really need it either. It is a full size ATX case though so don't get it thinking it will fit a shallow entertainment center or bookshelf like a dvd player will.

5 out of 5 eggsSpacious, aesthetically pleasing, smart drive cage layout

Pros: I was looking for a case which had ample room for hard drives, had decent cooling options, plenty of front panel media inputs, and didn't look out of place next to our a/v receiver, cable box, and PS3.

The blue ring around the front power button is subtle, and no more obtrusive than what's on a DirecTV receiver, for a point of reference. The knob itself is best described as "wobbly," though it doesn't have a feather trigger so there's no concerns of accidental power cycling.

Internally, motherboard/power/DVD + HDs all connected fine. Cables from the front panel are very long and clearly labeled. The cooling on the system's great, running the CPU at 70-72*F when idle with everything stock (more on that below).

The FP inputs are ample and don't feel unstable at all. Flash media is a push in/pull out thing, no spring ejection. I like that, you may not.

The case itself seems solid - if you have a brand name a/v receiver, the metal quality runs along those lines.

Cons: With other nMedia cases, the internal HD/DVD drive cage needed to be placed in a specific position to align the DVD drive's eject button with the external eject button. It was an issue of alignment on the z-axis, not up or down; this was all within the range of a screw hole's diameter, to give an idea of how precise it needed to be set. Trial and error is all it takes to get it right, but it needs to be done each time the cage is removed.

Like in some HD cages, the drive cage would be better served with an oval line hole instead of a single circular hole. It would allow builders to securely screw the cage down regardless of where their DVD drive needs to be for the eject button.

The cheapo sticky hooks for keeping cables off the mobo didn't really stick at all. If this is a sticking point (pun intended!) you probably have bigger fish to fry.

Lastly, the flip-down FP input cover seems flimsy compared to the rest of the case. It's not a Fabergé Egg, but it's not heavy duty eithe

Other Thoughts: I swapped out the two 80mm fans in the back for a pair of old still-in-box Zalmans, as they were 3-pin fans unlike the molex-powered stock fans. I took one of the stock fans and used zip ties to strap it to the inside ceiling of the case over the air vents above the CPU. The 120mm side fan is, looking from the front of the case, on the left side next to the drive cage. Might be handy to put another fan on the other side next to the DVD drive.

The drive cage is laid out well, but it's important the HD installation order is followed to ensure screws can be placed in all drives. I only have 1 optical drive and two HDs in there now, but I can tell I'll easily be able to fill the other four HD bays and not have to worry about cable congestion.

I'm using the mobo's GPU on an mATX board; for those with longer video cards, I'd guess the distance from the rear of the case to the back of the drive cage to be about 9". It seems like part of the cage could be removed, but it's far from modul
