5 out of 5 eggsGood size, did NOT get rebate.., works

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: The case itself aswell as the power supply is good for a user friendly build nothing to crazy. all the ports work and wires are of good sized length.

Cons: the only thing i didn't like was the little door covering the usb broke early.. and the rebate that was supposed to be mine.. wasn't. so it was a bummer.

Other Thoughts: giving 5 eggs because im a nice guy. jsut a little disappointed about the rebate and the door. otherwise its good

3 out of 5 eggsA++ Design and features D+ Quality

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: Great design and features. looks amazing from a glance.. perfect size for a casual computer. stable voltage for now, you get what you pay for in a way, but no company should make something so poorly built.

Cons: Not much thought went into the packaging.. I found the instructions that show you how to open the case inside the the case itself, so I assume that won't help anyone. It gets worse. Most of the plastic pieces were made by a 3d printer and break very easily. as a matter of fact, one of the stands and a front cover clip arrived cracked. Metal is not cut smooth (but at same time not sharp). metal seems to not be polished or anything. the power button does not completely line up with the switch, so you have to press the button's corner for it to work. the power supply runs high voltage. 12 volt rail is at 12.4 volts.

Other Thoughts: The dvd drive and hard drive install requires complete disasembly and attaching brackets. would be a great case if it wasnt made by xion's cheap manufacturing techniques

3 out of 5 eggsbetter than feared

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: -appearance
-price
-plenty of room for a microATX AM1 board (bear in mind that mine was only ~7" wide)
-allows for SSD and has room for an SSD and a desktop hard drive
-USB3

Cons: -very flimsy metal
-looks strange positioned horizontally due to power cable sticking out on the side
-power cable runs across the power supply exhaust (which heats it) and is rather thin
-relatively poor cooling (I upgraded the single 80mm fan, but there is not much more one can do without serious modifications)
-iffy power supply (but still working ~1 week later)

Other Thoughts: - Power supply is SFX form-factor and can be replaced easily (you don't have to get another XION - lots of better highly rated 80+ SFX power supplies supplies out there)
- Its low price, pleasant appearance, poor cooling, and iffy power supply make it a good fit for an HTPC (my intended use) - I wouldn't try to put anything that needs serious power and cooling in there;
- my set-up is an AM1 board with an Athlon 5350 (25W TDP) processor, and for that it does the job

3 out of 5 eggsDecent looking case, but don't be fooled

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: Good looking case, comes with card reader that works, which was cool. Pretty small without the plastic feet, which is the main reason I bought it. Comes with a free power supply (free because you probably shouldn't use it nor factor it into the price). Would make a good case for a web browser/email/word processor/facebook/jukebox machine (I'm sure the power supply could handle even that). Very light. This case would get 4 stars if it had some sort of handle to carry it around.

Cons: I realized that this particular case is a bad idea for a desktop build. It'd be a pain to swap out the hard drive. You can't take out the case fan that's on top without removing your motherboard first. It was somewhat frustrating working inside this case. You can only have one mounted case fan without additional modifications, which keeps temps high. Only one spot for a hard drive.

Need to search for another, decent, tiny power supply if you don't want to risk using the power supply that comes with it (other reviews scared me). This means paying extra, adding to the cost of the build.

Another major problem with this case is that, because it's so small, they had to mount the power supply in the front, with the outlet on the bottom of the case. If you want to stand up the case, you'll have to use the funky looking right angle cable they supply, along with the two plastic feet to lift it high enough. This effectively adds two inches in width, and one inch in height to the case, which was a big con for me, because I bought this for it's small size. I wouldn't trust the case to be able to support the weight of a monitor while lying on its side either, so I'm stuck with a kind of awkward looking case that need these ugly feet to work, which takes up more volume than I planned for.

Oh, and the side plate doesn't snugly meet with the front plate, so I see some silver from the inside peaking out.

Other Thoughts: If you wanted another spot for a hard drive could probably stack two SSDs on top of one another (and tape or glue them together or something), or make use of the optical drive area.

In the end, you should probably shell out a bit more money for a slightly bigger case that comes with a more reliable power supply that you can place your faith in. This will save you the trouble of dealing with the very cramped space inside the case, the extra, hidden increase in size from using the plastic feet (which just takes up more room without adding useful interior volume), dealing with the hassle of finding another power supply or taking your chances and risking all your other components, and dealing with the lack of spots for hard drives and case fans.

3 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: Great case for the money. The inclusion of USB 3.0 front panel port and USB2 card reader saves money. Pretty straightforward to set-up and configure.

Love the look, and the red color looks stunning if that's your thing. They certainly did a good job on the fit / finish.

Cons: I have a real problem with companies that change components mid-product without altering the model number.

This is the third of these cases I've used, and the first two I gave rave reviews. The case was right at the top of my list for bang-for-buck ratio, but not so much any longer... why? The power supply used to be an okay "useable" unit, so you got value for your dollar.

The one included in this third case is a pile of garbage. Simply put. I always take apart the included power supplies in cases, because if they're junk, I toss them and put in something that will last. Voiding the warranty doesn't bother me; I wouldn't expect a no-name Chinese based company with no presence in the US to honor a warranty anyways.

The power supply in the first two cases wasn't great, but it was useable. It lacked input filtering of any decent quality (a definite negative), but at least it had okay components like a true rectifier bridge. I can always tell when PSU companies stoop to the "lowest of the low" because they omit the $2 rectifier bridge and substitute four $0.05 diodes instead.

The board is still silkscreened for the missing components (rectifier bridge, input choke / filter, etc.) but clearly they care more about cost vs quality.

Again, I'm not looking for a $30, high quality power supply. I'm looking for a sub-$10 cheapie with a rectifier bridge that I can put some semblance of faith into, and it doesn't even deliver that. I would have paid an extra $3 for the better PSU, saving myself $20 in having to buy and ship another one.

There are two plastic tabs which are rather fragile, so be real careful when placing your front panel on. If one of these two plastic tabs break, you're sunk. There's no other way to hold the front panel on. One side hinges (pretty solid), and the other snaps tight with those two plastic tabs.

Other Thoughts: With my "cons" in mind, I'm putting a lot of emphasis on the power supply in an otherwise great case. But that power supply makes all the difference between an outstanding value (which it used to be) and an ordinary case.

Why ordinary case? Because I consider this case now as having no included power supply (don't use it, unless you want your components fried-- Trust me, I've been in the PC / electronics industry and building PC's for 20+ years).

So now that you add the price of a power supply, you have a $65 case. That price puts you right in the neighborhood of other good cases with okay power supplies. So, not much to be said for it's great value any longer.

With that in mind, it's a good, attractive case. The red finish is gorgeous as is the whole exterior of the case. Looks every bit as good as your off-the-shelf Dell and HP and Gateway machines, in my opinion. Flimsy metal, but that's expected in this price range.

The power supply really sunk my opinion on this, if you couldn't tell. I was hoping for the "okay" power supply I received last time with the case.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Case Ever

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Terrible Cooling, The power supply will die within a month

Other Thoughts: If you have the heart set on the case the fans arent very good but you cant use the power supply. Trash the psu as soon as you get this. The case is still bad and overheats when playing games.

1 out of 5 eggsNice, but PSU makes it worthless

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: Nice slim case, decent layout except for PSU placement. Slim size makes it very nice for HTPC style uses.

Cons: PSU placement is all the way at the front with an integrated cable running to the back. The PSU is cheap. Nearly started a fire. Cable placement in the PSU was smooshed up against components that heat up, so the cables melted, shorted and started sparking everywhere starting an electrical fire within the PSU. Pulled the PSU only to find it is a non-standard size and you can only get a replacement from XION which COSTS MORE THAN THE WHOLE CASE AND PSU COMBINED. Worthless. Nice little case is going in the trash because no PSU can fit in it.

5 out of 5 eggsI actually love it

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: Well its day 1, and i mean it wasnt DOA, so good good there. Also it fits, a 3.5in, 2.5in, and a ODD. so go figure its actually kinda cool. if you are handy you could mod it to fit a full size card in the case ( not kidding) well like 9in card but still.

Cons: um, well, it definitley is cheap, but not bad cheap. like it feels like a 40 dollar case all the way

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black/RED_Retail

Pros: It has room for an 2.5" SSD and a 3.5 HDD! The instructions are showing how to mount a 3.5" HDD under the ODD unit. I was planning to use only an SSD with the case because of the adverised one internal bay only but I ended up with an SSD for the OS and a 3.5 HDD for storage each with their own backets. The design seems quite good although servicing would take a lot of steps. Given the small form factor, this seems a perfect use of space.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is the second case I use for building a computer. For this buit I used an ASUS H81M-A Micro ATX Motherboard, a 4770K (it was cheaper than 4770) with standard cooler, a 256 GB Samsung Pro SSD, 2x8 GB Ram and no video card. So far it rocks!
