5 out of 5 eggsI've got two, and they work well for me

Pros: I just bout my second one. This works great for an XBMC build.

The smooth front door (running the length of the front) has a clear panel, and that is where I install my HP IR receiver (for use with my Logitech Harmony Remote)... so don't ask me about the display panel, as I don't use that.

Nor do I care about the ability to put in an optical drive, or even the SD card readers.

I just pop in a PS, MB, Vid card and SSD...and BAM! instant XBMC box that looks great with all the other audio components.

Cons: ... having to listen to whiney folks that think that this is not the greatest case you can get for $50 bucks. Seriously, I tried cheaper, and you get cheaper. This is a perfect box for the HTPC needs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC case.

Pros: Perfect size for my TV stand, it's the same size as my DVR cable box.

Cons: None that I have found.

Other Thoughts: It fits my older ECS m-atx motherboard with my Athlon X2 CPU that I'm using XBMC on. It has plenty of room for the 2 750GB hard drives and standard ATX power supply. The in-case cooling is pretty good too. I had to get a half height video card that had HDMI out, but that wasn't too hard to find. (ASUS GTX520 fanless) I didn't opt for the extra lcd display, so I don't know what that gives you.

5 out of 5 eggs  elegant front look

Pros: Looks nice has room for everything you need. Hdds and DVD rom. It's pretty slim. Just about as high as a power supply. The two fans reinstalled are silent. Could not be heard even at close proximity

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsWorks but has issues

Pros: I bought this on sale for 49.99, and for that price i will deal with the poor build quality, for 79.99 as it's been priced I'd be upset. The out side fit and finish is nice and looks like just another entertainment piece. I added the media LCD becasue it really makes it stand out. I'd buy it again at 49.99

Cons: Okay, well the build quality has a lot to be desired, I mean it will work but could be better. on the one I bought, the PSU wouldn't sit flat, a small rivet was really close to the lower right screw hole. The rivet had to be removed. I'm thinking the insides must be used in other models because there's a number of unused rivet holes. A person might even start to think they messed up drilling the holes at the factory, but I'm pretty thats not the case or I'd hope it's not.

2 out of 5 eggspoor quality even considering the price

Pros: the design of the case is good for a home theater pc and its a very affordable case

Cons: the biggest problem is the standoffs for the mother board are not high enough so the rear io connectors do not align with the rear io panel. also the standoffs are just a bit to far in so the motherboard does not quite sit back far enough against the case.you can still attach most of the cables to rear connectors but it takes some modifications. the other biggest problem is there is a case rivet in the way of where the power supply mounts causing alignment issues. there is also much wasted space concerning the rack that holds hard drives

Other Thoughts: for the price point its not a horrible case. Once assembled and setup the rear ports of a HTPC rarely needs to be accessed so alignment issues may not be a problem for you. if you use a graphics card you may run into problems because of the misplacement of the motherboard standoff misplacement. but it is a hard case to beat for the money

4 out of 5 eggsFanastic HTPC Case After Some Modding

Pros: Love the asthetics... I truly appreciate the shorter case that more resembles a home theater component rather than the behemoth HTPC cases that stand 6-8" tall.
Also love the front door. Open it to put in a disk or plug in a flash drive, close it when otherwise unoccupied so it looks great when not in use (or streaming); otherwise... focus is shifted toward the TV anywho, right? =P
Full size PSU spacing. This is absolutely fantastic in my book as this HTPC will be used essentially as a Steam Big Picture box more than a media center. This allows me to utilize discrete graphics whilst maximizing the number of HDDs and fans without concern about power limitations.

Cons: This case has a lot of potential, but limited from the factory...

-0.5 egg for the memory card reader included. Looks cheap, and sure the cutout is a standard 3.5" bay size, but the mounts won't allow you to put your own 3.5" device there. It wasn't a huge deal to make my own 3.5" USB 3.0 bay work, but I feel like that is simple enough to do from the factory to save the end user time.

-0.25 egg for the ventilation situation. I understand that this is a relatively small form factor (SFF) case, but simple things could have made it more convenient. I would have loved to see fan mounts on the top case in 120mm but would have settled for 80mm. The holes are already there I don't think it would be too difficult to throw come mounting points on there. A bigger tiff came when installing the 80mm side fans. The fans on the M/B side will need to be 15mm or thinner for a uATX. Standard 80mm fans are 25mm thick and will require modding. The included fans are 15mm, but move nearly no air. I'm still looking at an adequate replacement, considering the Cooler Master R4-SPS-20AK-GP

-0.25 egg for the LCD window. Alright, sure, it doesn't come with the LCD I suppose I can understand that; it's quite a price cut for the end product. But again... why can't this be a standardized 3.5" bay to mount other 3.5" devices??

Other Thoughts: This was by far the longest I've ever spent on a computer assembly; granted I was perfecting cable management in order to maximize air flow in such a restricted case. That being said, I adore the final product. Do I find myself lying awake at night fearing any major component failure requiring me to reopen this bad boy? No, but I'll definitely be prepared to set aside a few hours for any maintenance.
I would recommend this case to anyone who is concerned with aesthetics over effort involved when assembling the machine. I didn't mind taking the extra time cutting and drilling so that the end result was a sleek little deceptively subtle powerhouse. If you're looking for a plug and play solution, I'd recommend you look elsewhere. (But half the fun of building a PC, especially an uber constricting SFF PC, is the personalization/modding right?)

TLDR: This is my Machiavellian HTPC case of choice. Make sure the juice is worth the squeeze.

5 out of 5 eggsThe perfect HTPC case

Pros: Low profile. Sleek and sturdy. Front panel looks very nice, flips down to access Blu-Ray/DVD/CD player and USB/media ports.

Cons: Chassis fans are 3-pin instead of 4-pin. LED panel should have came with this case and not as an option.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad I did my homework and watched the videos on Youtube that show how to install drives into this case. The internal drive bay comes out (unscrew the 2 screws) and makes it real easy to install a Blu-ray/DVD/CD player. Use the screw holes on the bottom of the plate to hold the drive in place since the sides are really tight and the screws will prevent it from sliding back in. This was the ONLY thing that was difficult about this case. No problems installing a mATX motherboard or video card. Some people said the holes for the video card are on the wrong side. Mine did not have this problem.

4 out of 5 eggsMedia PC perfect

Pros: This case was everything I was looking for. It blends in nicely with my media stack (receiver, amps, etc.) and looks like an innocent DVD/Bluray player that does so much more. I installed a IR dongle (for IR remote) behind the window which hides everything functionally into a very tight, tidy and good looking package. It is also the lowest profile case possible that houses a "regular" power supply, and that was important for me.

Cons: Yep, the MB clearance height is low and could be an issue. (Thanks to those who commented before for the heads up.) I worked around that by adding spacers (aka washers) under the MB during installation. A little tricky, but doable and no short circuit concerns. This did require some ingenuity for the expansion cards but it worked out fine. 1 egg off for the Cons and the extra effort required.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why so many are down on this case. It is plainly a very inexpensive, low profile case. This should clue you in that there are some trade-offs. If you want the quality of an expensive case, then go buy one. The price and practicality of this particular case left money on the table to improve what I put inside, including a BluRay player vs the DVD I originally planned for.

Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsThis Unit is Cheap

Pros: Nice case, could fit well with other Stereo Components.........in 1985-1990.

Cons: The Case is huge. The front door that comes down was broken out of the box. Its obvious there is no quality control to check these things out.

Other Thoughts: none
