4 out of 5 eggsnice looking case

Pros: It looks really nice.

Cons: Why did they go with orange fans? The whole point of this case is to not look like a computer. The orange fans are a dead give away. Also, the case doesn't line up perfectly without the lid on it. This made getting the button lined up on the DVD drive take effort. Also there isn't really any cable management.

Other Thoughts: I love the case overall now that it has been built and I haven't had to open it up. During the building process, it could have been more friendly to work with considering the price.

3 out of 5 eggsArrived Damaged

Pros: I have not had a chance to install my components into this case yet. I will update my review when possible.

Cons: The packaging, which was an OEM box with no additional packing material, was reasonably intact. Once I removed the case from the package I immediately noticed a shower of black chips falling from the protective wrap. It was, of course, paint chips.

It appears as if the case was dropped on its back, left corner which bent in part of the chassis and completely covered one of the screw points for the power supply.

Other Thoughts: Naturally I'm disappointed in NmediaPC because this was clearly a quality control issue and not the fault of Newegg. You cannot see the damage when it is nestled inside my entertainment center, so I will attempt to use it. I hope that my concern reaches the manufacturer so this doesn't happen to anyone in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsGood cabinet-friendly case

Pros: Small size yet fully functional.
Easy to assemble system as long as you do it in layers.
Well engineered for the most part.
Good looking.

Cons: Cost-reduced to a fault.
Pay USD80 for a USD50 case.
Limited 3.5" HDD mounting options.

Other Thoughts: Used mine to recase an HTPC/home media server. It's a perfect size for any micro ATX based system that you'd like to stuff into a cabinet. It also looks pretty good, certainly better than the salvaged full tower it replaced.

Once dismantled it's very open and easy to install components, but it's a good idea to think about cable routes after you install the mobo and P/S. Things get cramped inside quickly and you don't want to have to dismantle the HDD/optical cage just to reposition your fan wires.

The instructions advertise 4 positions to mount HDDs, but they appear to be targeted at 2.5" SSDs. Choices for 3.5" HDDs are fewer; I ended up mounting mine upside-down below the optical drive cage. There's another space above the power supply but it would still require upside down mounting plus additional support between the P/S and HDD.

I did not include an optical drive in this build but have to mention the case provisions for BD/DVD/CD. They spent some time engineering an auxiliary front panel cover designed to fit in front and work with a sliding drive tray. There is NO spring tension in this cover and I ended up having to tape it from behind or it kept flopping open. I would have preferred if they just included a regular 5.25" slot cover here.

This case is well engineered, all the components are easy to remove and install and all the holes line up with no drama. However, my main complaint is that they really squeezed out every penny of margin possible, cutting corners in the process. For instance, the expansion slot covers are stamped into the case and you have to break them off. Better make sure you pick the right slots the first time. But they saved a nickel not using replaceable slot covers.

I thought my HDD LED was broken and pulled the cover to make sure. No, it works fine but since it was simply inserted into a blob of silicone sealant it's virtually invisible from the front panel. The power and reset buttons front a very thin PCB that visibly flexes every time the buttons are pushed. I don't plan a lot of power cycles so hopefully this won't be a failure point.

I like the way this build turned out and the spouse certainly prefers its looks, but this still feels like a much cheaper case. HTPC/desktop options are limited these days and they certainly take advantage of the situation with this case.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and Surprisingly Spacious

Pros: I was hesitant to buy this as I was worried about space for hard drives. I watched the video on Newegg and decided to buy it. To my surprise there was more space then I thought there would be. I had purchased a mATX board and there is plenty of room left over. I have an SSD, and 2 3.5" hard drives, and have room for a third and fourth in the future.

Cons: Not able to put in a blu ray drive in my setup. Not really a con as I don't need one (have PS3).

Wish there were some kind of standouts for the 2.5" hard drive space on the bottom of the case under the drive bay as the SATA power connector does not fit very well. I could only install 2 of the hard drive mounting screws so the drive was not flat. Good thing it was an SSD.

Other Thoughts: I installed the SSD on the bottom of the case, a 3.5" drive under the DVD drive bay, and another inside the drive bay. I still have the space over the PSU and at the front of the case to add more drive (but the motherboard only has one SATA left).

Managing the cables wasn't too much trouble. The only problem I had was with SATA cables, with some drive upside down and across the case, I would need to buy molex to SATA and a SATA extender cable to add more drives.

I do think if you had a disk drive that the 3.5" hard drive space over the PSU would not be possible.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC case

Pros: I really like this case for use on a front room TV.
It blends in like other appliances on the shelf.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The front LCD shows "Home Theater PC" when on.
It blinks when the system is in S3 sleep mode.

Tall enough to hold full height video cards.

One included fan uses a 4 pin standard molex connector.
The other fan uses a 3 pin mainboard connector.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case so far

Pros: Solid construction

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Can fit a full size ATX power supply, but I wouldn't put one in. It's just a bit much for the space, so avoid it if you can.

My second HDD is held in by only two screws. It is holding well and never jostled around, but I'd prefer a bit of a different setup.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job.

Pros: Using it in an HTPC setup with a Gigabyte mini-ITX board, has one SSD, one 3.5 for DVR and a BDplayer. good cooling and it is quiet. has a cool loking HTPC led bottom-left corner that comes on by default. brightness just right.

Cons: Wish there was a version that had the same dimensions with same quality for a say... 12-bay hot swap NAS with mini ITX.size was it would be manageable.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good not perfect

Pros: Less than 13" deep
Less than 6" tall
Fits standard PC components
Fits mITX or mATX motherboards
Adequate case cooling
Steel and aluminum, good fit and finish
ir receiver mounting location
Looks good
Well laid out

Cons: Drive mounting is week.
Drive location 2 is where you store extra cable so is of questionable use.
The optical drive mount interferes with the ir receiver mounting location.
Front LED display is of questionable value.

Other Thoughts: There aren’t many choices when looking for an HTPC case that looks like a piece of home theater equipment (not a cube or a breadbox) and fit standard sized components. This is a good solution at a competitive price. The build quality is good with sturdy materials and it looks nice sitting on the entertainment stand.

Three HDDs is not realistic with cable storage but 2 HDDs and an SSD are no problem. Some of the hard drive mounts and the optical dive mount are a little flimsy and only supported on one side or at two or three points. I would secure or remove the drives before moving this case any distance. Otherwise the case is nicely laid out with nothing encroaching over the motherboard.
An HD7850 video card fit without a problem.

The case has good cooling and the fans aren’t bad but are not silent. I replaced them with quieter fans and all I hear now are the hard drives spinning.

The standard LCD display is of little value so I opted for the optional programmable LCD display which I won’t review here but In my opinion is an overpriced novelty only visible at close range. The option should be no display or a good display not a useless display or an expensive unreadable programmable display. I would have preferred no display and a lighted power button instead.

Other than these few issues I am quite happy with this case and would recommend it.

1 out of 5 eggsTotal Fail

Pros: None

Cons: Power button does not work. The PC will not power up. The PSU power connectors to a GTX 780 (4.4") stick up to high thus the top of the case will not fit, at all.

Other Thoughts: The piece of plastic on the front (that has the labels on it) is kind of cheap and started to come off when I peeled the protective piece of plastic off of it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The case it's self is well made and laid out to enable the most components in the least space - The IR window works well with a FLIRC USB IR receiver

Cons: - The fans - one is a full speed molex connected fan, the other is a 3-pin connector fan - I replaced both with Corsair 4-pin PWM fans -
The 3-pin fan stuttered (tried to start) on power-up and then not start every time -
When the fan did start it would run a low speed (around 400rpm) and made a low "ticking" or "snapping" sound -
If I loosened the fan from the case it would then run at full speed (800rpm) and the "ticking" or "snapping" sound would go faster -
- The front USB3 port - There is a single port USB3 cable connected to a dual USB3 header on the mobo -
I had problems with front USB3 until I disabled one of the 2 ports associated with that header in the BIOS -
I did email nMEDIAPC tech support and was told the fans are acting "normal" so I told them I would just replace the fans on my own

Other Thoughts: The front LED is just connected to the "power indicator" light connector so a single green LED can replace it -
The power button makes a loud "metal cricket" type sound when pressed -
I used a "Cooler Master Vortex Plus - CPU Cooler" for my ASUS LGA-1150 mobo and it fits quite nicely -
I used an internal USB2 cable to run my "FLIRC USB IR receiver" to the front IR window and taped the FLIRC into place. It receives signals from my remote at all angles and from a good distance away -
The EVGA GTX 750 video card I used fits nicely and runs cool
