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.

5 out of 5 eggsSOLID CASE

Pros: Fair price for a wood case, Was pleased it came with USB3 port and a USB2 port on the front of the case. The case was extremely well packed, and came with no damage. The issues with the door button on the DVD player must have been fixed, as well as the door opens smoothly and closes smoothly. The case is just big enough to fit all my parts with a little room for cable management. I read the reviews for this case and was expecting some assembly issues, but they didn't happen. Seems like they fixed the issues that were brought up before. With as good a cable management as I could do the case seems to have good airflow. The stock fan seems to be doing fine running quietly.

Cons: Not any but a few suggestions. I would have liked 2 USB3 ports on the front and a 3rd USB2 port to go with the card reader. The drive bay is still attached with wood screws, would have been nicer with threaded inserts, but this case isn't meant to be taken apart often so I think it will be OK. Last nit is the depth is closer to 14 inches and not 11, 11 inches is the dimension from back to the corner where it angles out.

Other Thoughts: I am glad I bought this case as it has met my expectations, and looks good in the living room. Like others have mentioned it has a high wife approval rating.

1 out of 5 eggsCheaply Made

Pros: Wooden Case - this is the only wooden case I could find. My sister wanted me to build her something that didn't look so black and retangular. She wanted something to sit on top of a shelf. The wood was good and think, the finish seems well done.

Lots of Room - with a Micro ATX motherboard, there is a ton of room in the case. No problem fitting 700w modular power supply.

Motherboard mounted firmly on the bottom, plenty of offset screws included.

Cable management is acceptable since there is plenty of room with modular power supply and micro atx motherboard. They include a "sticky" cable holder you put on the inside of the case and can loop them through. I expect over time this will fall off.

Cons: Cheap metal parts. Be prepared, the wood might be nice, but the metal is cheap and thin. The first thing that happened as I'm putting this together is a screw broke off in my SSD. The metal frame you put the hard drives, ssd and optical drive in, the screw holes do not line up properly.

You have to mount your 3.5" hard drive upside down. I was only able to get 2 screws in. When I went to install my SSD, the holes did not line up left to right. The screw snapped down inside the SSD drive without me putting much pressure on it at all. I was able to jimmy the drive sideways and get only 2 screws to fit in the SSD, one in front right, one in back left.

The back of the computer, you have to pull two screws out and remove a plastic piece to get a graphics card to insert. The slots on the back are the old tab style, where you use a phillips head screw driver and bend back/forth until they break loose.

Other Thoughts: I'm dreading turning this on. It only has one fan and no where for the power supply airflow to vent out of. There are small intake airports on either side of the front 5 1/4" bay.

I'm expecting the case to run hot, but hoping it won't.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat idea, product is ify

Pros: great look, more than enough hardware, solid and heavy

Cons: didn't receive all the gear it quoted in the description, and in the process of shipping one corner was smashed in although there was no damage to the exterior of the box?

Other Thoughts: just want the LED display they said came with it, its a pain to find one to fit at this point!

4 out of 5 eggsUnique case

Pros: The photo shows this case's biggest draw -- its unusual appearance. If you prefer to have a faux antique radio sitting in your AV stack than any of the numerous faux modern stereo receiver boxes, then this one is for you. Beyond that, the case seems to be basically sturdily built (note exceptions below). It's got moderately good accessibility; it's possible to remove smaller cards from a motherboard without removing the disk tray, but long or tall cards may require removing the disk tray. The front bezel comes with lots of attachments for miscellaneous media.

Cons: The front bezel is plastic painted to look like metal -- it's a bit cheesy. The optical disc flap folds down neatly when ejecting a disc, but the tray on my player (a Pioneer BDR-209DBK) gets caught when retracting, necessitating holding down the case's disc flap. The disk tray spans most of the width of the case and is held in place by two wood screws. I'm concerned that this will eventually cause problems, since removing and re-inserting those screws will no doubt damage the wood threads.

Other Thoughts: There's a space for an LCD readout on the front panel, but the unit I got didn't have an actual display; that's an extra purchase. I can't think of a truly compelling use for such a display so I'm not buying it, but if you want one, be sure to factor in the extra cost.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad at all

Pros: Solid Wood construction. Built well. About 3"-4" shallower than a typical mid tower. Looks just like the pictures but maybe a 1/2 a shade darker in real life. They provide plenty of screws and mounts along with zip ties and two wire clips.

Cons: Overall construction is good where it counts but there are a few minor things you need to adjust. Nothing worth deducting an egg for though. The top tray needs a little TLC to get the DVD drive to line up properly. Right now it still has issues closing properly but I only spent about 5 minutes trying to get it right. One of the tray screws was bent so I just replaced it with a small wood screw I had around.

Other Thoughts: I kinda wish they provided some sort of USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter just in case you don't have 3.0 capability. Right now the 3.0 slot is inactive :(

This case is shallower than a midtower but probably 50% taller (or thicker if mounted vertically) . Keep that in mind. Overall its still a very cool quality case made from solid wood. I was expecting sh*&^y particle board like from IKEA. The tricky part is what order to install things since the case is a little tight in some areas. It helps to remove the large fan first before installing components.

1 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case, questionable construction/design

Pros: Looks wonderful

Cons: 4th 3.5" drive bay doesn't have it's mounting points drilled out & rubber placed in it, effectively making it 3 3.5" drive bays unless you want to mod your case a bit.

2 wood screws used to mount the bar which holds the drives to the case, no noise padding no anchor points for machine screws -- Seriously it should have 4 mount points to keep that bar attached & secure

92mm Fans suggested on front gills for gamer rigs but no mount points put in place, and the front dust filters are non-removable

Included fan is connected via molex instead of 3 or 4pin for motherboard speed controls

Front bezel has minor issues with the drive flap fitting & eject button, roughly a 1mm shave around the edges of each may fix that.

Front bezel is plastic made to look like brushed metal -- would pay a bit more for better construction there.

2 Power LEDs are spliced together instead of 1 cable coming out & properly hiding the cable bloat

No connection point up front for the Programmable LCD adding 2 more cables running into the case on top of the 4 cables to get the Audio/USB/Card Reader hooked up

1 of the 2 screws used to mount motherboard tray to bottom of case is stripped out completely in mine with scratch marks showing a running power screwdriver had dragged across the metal.

Other Thoughts: If a version 2 is released buy that, in it's current condition not recommended for most people

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.
