4 out of 5 eggsJust What I Wanted

Pros: The obvious, small compact size, good looks.

Cons: Had to mod in a HDD light. Yes it was designed for the home theater crowd who wouldn't want a blinking light there. But this is a great case for a desktop build too, just don't plug the HDD light in if not wanted.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellant case for itx mobo

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing---minimalist design---compact---light weight

Cons: None----However, it would be so cool if it glowed in the dark.

Other Thoughts: Power supply has only two sata connectors plus one molex connector.
Suggest you purchase molex to sata adaptor cable Item#: N82E16812200061
if more than two needed ( as I did )

Case fan is noisy....I disconnected it----not needed.

4 out of 5 eggs3 1/2 star bumped to a 4 star

Pros: -- Size was just what I was looking for, otherwise, it's a 3-star box.
-- The box included mounting screws for the mboard, built in mounting screws for a 3.5" drive, and those tiny mounting screws for a slim DVD player (but no mounting screws for a 2.5" drive )
-- Also, the slot in the front is a detachable/reattachable front plate covering an optiona slim DVD player
-- The power supply has a 20+4 ATX power cable, meaning it has the 20 and the 4 pin parts separate but can be used side-by-side
-- The power supply's small fan faces outside the box, and is a quiet fan

Cons: -- The power supply's power cord package consists of the following: the two 20+4 ATX power cords; a cpu mb power cord; a 2.5/3.5" SATA power cord; a case fan power cord; a legacy 4-pin power cord. Unfortunately, there's no 4-pin to slim SATA power adapter. Had I known that, I could've at least ordered it (can't find locally), but the problem is that the one I found is long w.r.t. the case size, whereas Gigabyte could've added a short one for pennies. There's little spare room for cables to begin with.
-- The disk drive cage is combined with a support beam, and this combination cage+beam is difficult to mount, especially with a slim dvd. Without removing the plastic case cover, and with a slim drive, there was no way of removing the cage+beam combo w.o. removing the outermost ram module. It's difficult (or impossible?) to remove the slim drive without taking the cage+beam off.
Furthermore, the heads for the mounting screws for the 2.5" drive are covered by the slim drive.
-- The case screws shut, and with the rats nest of cabling, it can be tricky (at least for me) to slide the cover on and off.
-- If Gigabyte had laid things out better, you could cram more stuff in this case.

Other Thoughts: My system:
Core i3-4130T cpu
Gigabyte GA-H87N Wifi mb
G.Skill Ripjaws X series 8Gb DDR 1600/PC3 12800
Samsung 840 250G SSD
LiteOn 8x slim internal DVD burner SATA
LIteOn SK-1788 Black and Grey PS/2 wired keyboard
usb mouse
windows 7 home premium SP1 64 bit OEM

-- The plastic teeth thingies on the Ripjaw X memory take up valuable space, but even if they weren't there, there probably wouldn't have been enough clearance to remove the cage+beam.
-- I can't see any way of putting in a PCIe graphics card on a mboard that has a slot. There's no opening on the side of the case for a card's hdmi, etc. ports. Plus the cables are sized to run across the PCIe slot. And, of course, 150w PS probably wouldn't be enough.
-- I took the case fan out per other reviewer's experience. Haven't had any problems, but only running for 2 days.
-- Cabling is tight in this box, have to plan carefully. I think the cables are sized just right, but you have to be patient and lay things out carefully.
-- You might want to pass on the slim dvd player. But looking at the case, if you wanted to have a SATA data+pwr cable dangling out of the case, you'd either have to cut metal or cut into the mb's jack covering plate, which is cardboard/plastic. Probably somebody can think of something more clever than me.
-- With no slim dvd drive, there's be enough room to add another 2.5" drive, and attach it with cardboard, rubber bands, velcro, or who knows what.
-- For that matter, there looks like there might be enough room to stack a 3.5" drive--one of the new, slimmer ones--and still have room to slip a 2.5" drive under it. Heck, if you were handy, you could probably fit a slim 3.5" drive plus two 2.5" drives in (no slim divd, of course).

4 out of 5 eggsGood quality, good price, small

Pros: I was looking for an inexpensive case to build out a low cost computer I could use to hook to a HD TV. The case is just the right size to make the build very easy (about 15 min), yet small enough to easily fit into the an entertainment center. The case is large enough to do a i3/i5 build with the stock CPU heatsink. I would definitely purchase this case again.

Cons: Would have given this case 5 stars if the case fan was quieter. However, the case is well ventilated so in my setup since I am using a low powered CPU I just disconnected it. It did not come with any HHD screws to mount the drive, but who doesn't have a bunch of those lying around.

Other Thoughts: Foxconn H61S LGA 1155 Intel H61 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard fit perfectly with a low powered Pentium D with stock CPU heatsink fan.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat ITX Case

Coming Soon!

Pros: Great Looking ! PSU is almost silent. Asrock FM2A85X mobo, DVD slim, DDR3 1600, AMD A85500 and 2.5" 500gb HDD all installed easily. To be expected cable routing is crammed. However this case stays cool without any problems. 60mm case fan is pretty quiet without cover, but see Cons.

Cons: IMHO although the front panel is very attractive but it is Piano black plastic. Aluminum would have been super nice. The PSU is just about silent.....but when the case cover is in place I discovered the case fan air vent is poorly designed. It amplifies the noise level of the case fan. I plan to cut it out and use a round wire type, to hopefully decrease the noise level.

Other Thoughts: I modified the front panel for a HDD activity LED and a Reset push button. I'm happy with this case it's looks and small footprint are ideal for my use.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks like a great itx chassis

Pros: I'm waitng for delivery in a day or so. But this case caught my eye. Been looking for a compact case and decided to go for this one. It looks like a DVD player.

Cons: can't respond until I get it delivered

Other Thoughts: The one other poster said it all. I am extremely happy to have found it on Newegg. For the other poster i agree the missing HDD activity LED omitted by Gigabyte was poor thinking. I do have a spare, and will install it on my front panel. They are available on line and very inexpensive. I plan to install a Reset button on the front panel as well. I could not tell if one was present as Newegg's photos are pretty dim. Gave 4 eggs on specs and appearence. May come back for 5 once my build is completed.

5 out of 5 eggsExcelent Case

Pros: Excellent size. I wanted a small foot print with high horse power build. It is a challenge to stuff everything in there, but it does all fit. You have the advantage of full pc components and full heatsink fan cooling in a very small package. The case fan is quiet and has a good flow. The slim line dvd slot is a nice touch on a small way to handle this medea which will still be around for a while. The Gigabite name is a nice final touch.

Cons: Too bad it is listed only in HTPC media cases as it is a great case for a small PC build. Only lacking a HDD led indicator. Understandably not wanted to be flashing at you in your living room, but something I depend on for PC operations. I would ask they put in a HDD indicator, something you can leave un-pluged if it in your home entertainment center.
