HTPC 8000
 

nMediaPC is proud to introduce the first wooden HTPC Case. The classic looking HTPC 8000 case will not only meet your HTPC needs, but with its smart internal design it can easily surpass any gamer's expectations as well.

The new HTPC 8000 wooden case is a state-of-the-art ATX case for users of different interests. It supports full ATX motherboards, ATX PSUs, and all full-length video cards.

Feel free to add two 92mm fans in the front behind the panel.

Beyond the superior functions offered above, the classic style of this HTPC will capture every eye and impress your guests with your one-of-a-kind powerful home theater system.

nMedia is the first company to deliver a mass-produced wooden case to our labs. A mechanically-distressed finish adds to the HTPC 8000's nostalgic radio look, with reduced production costs allowing for a mass-market-friendly $120 Web price.

HTPC 8000

A short 14.4in. depth allows the unit to sit on narrower shelves and tables compared to a standard hi-fi-style case, and its dimensions accurately replicate the scale of the old radios it resembles. Likewise, its 19.7in. width and 11.0in. height will look great anywhere!

Simulated speaker holes at the front offer intake ventilation, while a simulated radio-tuning indicator hides a mount for a digital-display panel, such as the nMedia part sold here. The simulated knob is a stylish power button.

HTPC 8000

Casual glances may not reveal the DVD cover or button, but there's nothing retro about the case's memory card reader or front panel USB, eSATA, and FireWire ports. Front-panel microphone and headphone mini-jacks are also of the handy, non-retro variety.

HTPC 8000

Anyone who does not get close enough to the front panel to notice the modern conveniences probably won't notice the clever Phillips #3 top screws, which detract slightly from an otherwise stylish panel.

HTPC 8000

A 140mm low-speed fan draws warm air out the back. Reportedly manufactured by Dong Guan Hengli Hongsheng Electronics Factory (UL E225507), this 0.20A 140mm fan is unlisted at the manufacturer's site and its A14025L12S part number isn't carried by other suppliers.

HTPC 8000

A rack six inches above the motherboard supports four 3.5in. hard drives and one 5.25in. optical drive. There's enough room beneath it for most CPU coolers, except for 120mm tower-design coolers.

HTPC 8000

A card-reader and front-port connectors reside under the drive rack.

HTPC 8000

The HTPC 8000 supports full ATX and micro-ATX motherboards, with just enough room in front to support long graphics cards (such as the GeForce GTX 285) in six of its seven expansion slots.

4 out of 5 eggsGood looking case, a bit of an annoyance moving in to

Pros: Has an excellent look it, fits in with our classic 1940's flair style of decorating in our apartment. It has the "wife approved" factor to it which makes it nice for having it sitting out in the open in the living room. My previous case for my HTPC hardware was a regular cooler master desktop case and I wasn't allowed to have it anywhere in sight. Having this out and in the open makes it so much easier for plugging in things like USB thumb drives, charging my 3D glasses via the computers USB, or putting in a disc.

On the plus side, it forced me to clean up the living room so it will look better! I'm not known for cleaning, so i'm counting this as a plus.

It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it?

Cons: I'll agree with everyone else and say that I utterly despise the drive cage and after many hours of tinkering, I still can't get the front bezel to hit the eject button on my drive, though I think this may be to a slightly odd LITE-ON drive that I am using that always seemed to me to have a different placement for the eject button

Other Thoughts: I wish the case came with an IR receiver on the front built in so that I wouldn't have to continue using my external IR receiver.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks great, definitely isn't an eyesore.

Pros: Looks great and realistically, that's why you bought it!

The internals are well organized. Not perfect, but it's not something you will upgrade a dozen times.

It's sturdier than I expected - when you see something that looks gimmicky like this, you are half expecting it to be junk, but this really is pretty good.

Cons: DVD/Blu-Ray drive door is pretty poorly designed, but it works well enough.

Other Thoughts: I see a lot of reviews complaining that it didn't stand up to many upgrades and basically what would be considered 'abuse' to any other appliance. This case is about the looks. If you want a case that you can go upgrade a dozen times, there are plenty out there for that... but they would look ugly in your living room.

This case is perfect for your living room as a HTPC - a system that you will upgrade maybe two or three times in the next four to six years. Honestly, I am probably going to leave the system as my original build for at least a few years, then completely replace everything in it and still have it look good, instead of upgrading a HDD, then three video cards, then the processor, then RAM, then replacing the motherboard, Blu-Ray, etc.....

5 out of 5 eggsClassy HTPC

Pros: Lots of space, looks pretty, well built, LCD slot

Cons: Heavy, it's a lot larger than you'd expect. I didn't even look at the dimensions when buying this, and to be honest I didn't even think about the size much at all, but assumed it'd be smaller. It's ok though. Just something to be aware of.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why people whine about it using 3 USB's and take stars away for that. The "quality" is very good. That has nothing to do with how many internal USB's it uses. Honestly, it's been a long time since I've even considered a case that didn't use 3 front USB. This one uses two plus one for the LCD. What's the big deal? It's well made and sturdy. Excellent quality.

The color is darker than it appears in the pictures above, which is a good thing if you ask me. I like it even better.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid and Looks great

Pros: Solid wood design, sturdy, looks great. Honestly if the power button didnt have that blue led light, you couldn't tell it was actually a PC at all.

Cons: Very Heavy, awkward hard drive layout. The arrangement of the hard drive bays forces a very uncomfortable power cord stretching and twisting.

Other Thoughts: I love the look of this case. Classic old-school radio.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome HTPC Case

Pros: This case very unique, very solid feel very sharp looking its an htpc case I suppose you could use it as a desktop PC but you'll have trouble with airflow and fitting high end components in.

Its a large case you can fit many CPU coolers without problem
Solid feel
Looks awesome
Silent
Fits up to a full atx board

Cons: It is quite large just be aware I didn't expect it to be as large as it is. Somewhat of a pro and a con depending how you look at it. The other thing is you need to buy the LCD separate and my very last con is the drive door on the front kind of stuck a bit I needed to open and close my drive about 10 - 15 times before it wore a slight bump into the tab that opens the door before it would open smoothly. I've seen others complain about the same thing and some have had to sand the tab a bit etc I suppose it depends on your drive and if you get lucky with the case.

Other Thoughts: Great case takes a bit of time and a small amount of money to get it setup perfectly. I'm quite happy with it and its cool to show people because of how unique it is.

4 out of 5 eggsClassic look, well designed

Pros: I bought this with the intention of moving my media server into something that wouldn't be an eyesore in the living room. Success! 4x 3.5" HDD bays plus 1 for optical meant I didn't have to sacrifice desired storage space for the sake of fitting it all in this case.

Well packaged, was not damaged at all in shipping, which was a concern from other reviewers. USB ports (1x 2.0 & 1x 3.0) on the front panel with card reader all work very well. The power and HDD lights. illuminate, but was very happy they are not bright and distracting, so I can watch a movie in the dark without a problem.

Very nice finish all around.

Cons: The HDD caddy that mounts on top took a little fussing to get perfectly. The metal bracket only fits a small footprint on the wooden supports, and only mounted with two small wood screws, so it looks like it might not hold well if ever moved without special care and attention. The disk drive did not line up very well with the opening door, so I used a small wedge to angle the entire bracket slightly for proper clearance (only off by 1/8th") so nothing major. "Engineering" a fix was a bit time consuming, but otherwise the whole design was well thought out by someone out there. -1 egg overall.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This was for a media PC in a bedroom furnished with dark woods and this case was a perfect match. After reading other reviews I was a bit worried this case wouldn't work out. However I only had minor problems with its assembly. Delivery was fast as always with no damage.

Cons: The built-in case fan didn't come with a molex (or any other type) connector attached. I robbed one from an old case and spliced it on. The included instructions (primarily written in Engrish) were a tad vague in areas. It claimed the case can handle up to 4 HDD's however 2 of the mount points (listed as the primary points) are nearly impossible to mount any drive without making modifications. There aren't enough screw holes. I had to mount both drives on top of those bays rather than in them. But there was plenty of room. All of these were minor inconveniences.

Other Thoughts: I didn't notice before ordering that the LCD display doesn't come with the case. I will be ordering that shortly.

4 out of 5 eggsA few suggestions

Pros: I picked this case for my HTPC build about 2 years ago and if I had to do it over again I'd use the same case. I love the way it looks and it's fine for its intended purpose.

Cons: The biggest drawback is the dodgy driver for the LCD and the color. This thing looks like and old radio, the lights should be yellow or amber, like the dial of an old radio, not blue. The internals could be better, the optical drive doesn't line up well and if you add and remove the drive support too often you will strip out the holes in the wood the screws go into. The case also isn't real wood and the bronze looking front panel is plastic... but what do you want for $100?

Other Thoughts: I solved the optical drive problem with a big piece of double sided foam tape. It cushions the drive to help keep noise down, holds in in place and at just the right height. The stripped screw holes were easily fixed with a few drops of glue.

Bottom line is even with it's flaws I REALLY like this case, it has character no other case can match and perfectly fits in with the eclectic nature of my AV setup.

3 out of 5 eggslooks nice

Pros: has that furniture look for a htpc styled like a old time radio. front ports are convenient.

Cons: as on reviewer put it shoddy construction. it was anything but a joy to put a full size atx board in. one standoff was missing. the wood aspect left little to shied the computer components and the wood resonates with every seek of the hard drive. anything but a silent build. with a little more effort and quality parts it would be a nice case. the beauty here is only skin deep and the ugliness is to the bone on the inside.

Other Thoughts: its really good looking on the out side if you do a little extra work on it it might work for you. I suggest you don't put the hard drive caddy in place till you route wires and completely do the wiring. dont use the screws they provide to mount the hard drive caddy. they strip easily. if you have add on cards you have to remove the black plastic strip above the io plates. remove the back fan before you try to install the board. an awl to start the hole for the screws using the slotted holes on the drive holder will go a long way using your own screws which should be longer will help save some aggravation, you may want some wood glue to seat the screws with and metal brackets to reinforce the ledges the drive caddy rests on.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat look, mostly good execution.

Pros: Outside finish is fantastic! I love the look & use it as a stand for my 60" LCD in the living room atop a small entertainment cabinet. Most of the internals are well configured. I had no problems fitting a 680GTX & modular 600W PS, however stay away from high profile CPU coolers. I went with a scythe shuriken which fits well, cools great, & is a bit quieter than stock when pushing the CPU.

Cons: HDD/optical caddy mounting solution does lend toward limited number of maintenance cycles. Take care to not over tighten!

Other Thoughts: The optional LED bay is cool but the enabling software is ok, but somewhat limiting.
