2 out of 5 eggsBarely good enough

Pros: Holds 3 HDDs + optical drive; card reader (SD/MMC, CF/MD, MS, XD); low-profile, fits on stereo equipment shelf; looks good.

Cons: Poor build quality (1 star out of 5). This is a CHEAP case, made from thin sheet metal which is punched and bent inaccurately. Most screw holes don't line up. You have to squeeze, pry and force things to get the screws into the threaded holes. The cutout for the I/O panel is slightly too large. Usually, you have to apply quite a bit of pressure on the I/O panel to snap it in place. With this case, the I/O panel is slightly loose and wants to fall out. The motherboard standoffs are in the wrong place, approximately 3/32" too far from the back. The standoffs, which appear to be riveted to the "sub-chassis" and are not removable, are approx. 3/23" too short. I say "approximately" because the motherboard is tilted in relation to the I/O panel. At the far right of the I/O panel, the PS/2 ports are about 1/16" too low. At the far left of the I/O panel, the audio ports are 1/8" too low. They won't fit through the holes in the I/O panel. I'm going to have to shim the motherboard somehow. Both case fans are blowing inward. Except for the power supply, there are no fans blowing out. I reversed the right-side fan (near the CPU) so it would blow in. The 80mm fan is mounted with 2 screws. Amazingly, the mounting holes (in the side of the case) don't line up with the holes in the fan.

Other Thoughts: The incorrectly placed screw holes for mounting the low-profile brackets appears to be "fixed". There is now an additional hole to the left of the leftmost position (4 slots, 5 holes). I haven't installed any cards, so I don't know if this really works. There is no power LED on the case. The HDD activity LED is circular and surrounds the power button. The front audio can be either AC97 or HDAudio.

I'd like to keep this case because it is the right size to fit on my home entertainment shelf and it looks good. But, if I can't get the motherboard positioned correctly, I'll have to return it. I would no recommend this case.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect... It is not

Pros: I have two of these casesd and yes, the build quality is not great. But for 50.00 dollars is not a bad option. I agree with another review person, the back plate for the mother board doesn't line up, but you know there could be worse things. It's not a 100.00 case, it's 50 bucks. Most everything fits inside it and there's a neat front LCD you can buy to make it look like real HTPC.

Cons: Motherboard may not line up with back plate. I say may because one of mine does and the second one doesn't. I also have one case the power button wire came un-soldered. I looked at another case up close named silver.... and it was even tighter internally and sure didn't look like a 100.00 case.

1 out of 5 eggsnMedia 1080p HTPC build quality

Pros: New egg absolutely ROCKS.

Cons: Wow...the build quality is terrible. When all parts were finally installed...I'm guessing the case warped with the extra devices...it took longer to slide the top panel into place than it took to assemble the entire system. The panel just did not fit. Its not that difficult to slide a panel into a closed position, but nothing lined up properly. The front panel that is supposed to pop open arrived broken. I have a piece of tape holding it closed.

I believe that a few people receive a decent case, but the majority that post reviews work for nMedia.

To nMedia: This is my third nMedia case and the last one I will ever buy. Every single case had some major problem. nMedia, You need to move on...stop making computer cases. You are not good at it.

Other Thoughts: The human language does not contain the words to describe how bad this case is. If I could give this thing 0 stars I would. I understand that you get what you pay for but this is unacceptable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC Case

Pros: Plenty of room. I had no problem fitting a 500W PSU, BluRay burner, double slot low profile graphics card, TV tuner card, SSD, and hard drive in this case. Included fans are quiet.

Cons: No 2.5" bay. Not worth dropping an egg, but there's definitely space for one.

Other than that, none, this is a pretty decent case.

Other Thoughts: A modular PSU would make things easier for cable management. Make sure to have a few zip ties handy.

My unit got slightly tweaked in shipping, but not so much to have any real effect on installation. I had to tweak the drive cage slightly so that the optical drive would line up with the opening on the front of the case. Nothing worth losing an egg over.

This thing is pretty deep. Measure your entertainment center before you order.

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
