3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fit everything I wanted inside, which for me was the motherboard only. I may fit an SSD drive inside but for now it just runs XBMCbuntu on a USB stick. It looks ok, I would have preferred black I think.

Cons: The power connector is in a bad spot for my ASRock motherboard. Not thinking, I ham-fisted it and ended up breaking the connector. I will accept blame for it and will fix it myself, but I don't think it should have been there in the first place.

I also dislike the brightness of the light, although I'm sure that can be eliminated.

Other Thoughts: Working good for its intended purpose of a fanless media center.

3 out of 5 eggsToo small! Lack of clear documentation.

Pros: Great quality chassis! Comes with power supply.

Cons: Too small! I met the standard for maximum HSF clearance by an inch and it was right up against the top of the case and left no room for the HDD. Had to return and get a larger case.

Other Thoughts: You would think they would have factored in the maximum clearance with a HDD installed... Gave it three eggs because the case was nice but dropped two because they need to clearly document the maximum HSF height with an HDD installed!

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the feedback. But if you look at the "Features" you will see that it states: "System Board: Slim Mini-ITX, up to 1.25" in height with heatsink or cooling fan."

4 out of 5 eggsWanna Get Small? - Steve Martin

Pros: Small and sturdy, has enough power connectors for me, this time. Works with passively cooled embedded motherboard, and 2.5" HDD. It is being used as a Drupal 7 Ubuntu LAMP server development box. It runs 24 hrs per day EVERY day. Feet that come with it, but are not attached (no big deal) are sticky and don't let it slide around. For the right job I would recommend it.

Cons: Not modular power supply, with Molex connector. What fits in such a small case and needs a Molex connector??? Mini-SATA I could see, another regular SATA connector I'd REALLY like to see. I clipped off the Berg/floppy drive connector, just to make sure there is enough space for the large heat sink. I would very much like the external power connector come in from the back. I disconnected the external power connector on the back of the case and it does not want to stay hooked to the case. I can get power through it reliably. This is at least partly my fault. All of the sheathed cables are zip-tied into one position and are hard to move. I did cut those zip-ties and replaced them once the connectors were installed. Much better.

Other Thoughts: I would buy and use this case for another build, IF only one HDD/SSD was used. The idea of converting a Molex connector to an SATA connector in such a small case is abhorrent. There are some small percentage uses for a Berg connector, but the modular power supply solution is really ideal.

4 out of 5 eggsLike the Metal Case. Fit and Finish?

Pros: I'm giving this a 4 because they could have done better if they wanted to -see my cons. In sum, I have a very small form factor case with a d525 atom based pfsense firewall/ids box running perfectly.

I can't speak to the fit with other boards but I put in a Gigabit D525 atom board and it fit fine-but tight (as to be expected). I can't for the life of me see this working with an ivy/sandy bridge processor and an aftermarket fan.

Cons: The fit and finish on the exterior case screws wasn't where it could have been. Everything on the actual mounting of the hardware was fine - board, hd etc... but the exterior panel screws could cross thread easily if you weren't paying attention. Would I not get this case because of this? No. I'm being picky. I rebuild vintage American Machinery as a hobby- when stuff was all mechanical yet well thought out and engineered for the standards of the time. It's 2013. The screws shouldn't even have a hint of a hard time finding their hole. Just some longer screws for the diameter chosen would have done it.

Other Thoughts: I build networks for small offices up to 100 people. This is defiantly a candidate for future custom firewall builds that aren't in a rack. This took my sata-> compact flash "drive" just fine.

I feel like shipping could be lowered if one of the smallest cases available came in a smaller box. It would make it the clear choice over competitors for me.

On another note. It wan't clear in the photo but this case will mount to a wall with some screws (not provided). It has some X slots on the two sides of the case.

How do they think you might be able to fit a 3.5" drive in here? you'll get a 2.5... two if your lucky.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Glad I Bought This Case

Pros: Very Compact. Very Solid. Worked great for my Linux box. With just a board, memory, and a low power SSD, no issues with cooling.

Cons: The atom board I bought (nd2800mt) does not need the PSU this case comes with, would have liked to pay less and not get the PSU.

Other Thoughts: This was one of those items I buy, and feel glad as I open and then use it.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect for tiny applience

Pros: Solid material/design. Not the best look, but not that bad either.
Small. Comes with the power supply.
There is a hole that you can install RP-SMA connector on side.

Cons: Power connector is on the side, not in the back, which limits the orientation of box.
No reset button.
Fit and finish can be better.
If you need the second and third RP-SMA connectors, you need to drill, which I did.
I wish there were two USB ports in front.

Other Thoughts: The box can be a perfect silent mini server at home.
I run a pfSense firewall with AMD geode mini ITX board with this. It's been a year in service, working great.

If you need more than 60W of power in this case, you are doing something wrong. The case does not have good ventilation, so you need to keep the power consumption minimal.
My Geode board eats about 15W at AC, and the box gets comfy warn without fan. I cannot imagine putting in CPUs other than ATOM, Geode or Hudson. Maybe, Sandy/Ivy bridge with 35W TDP CPUs are OK but then you may have to put in a fan.

The case is very sturdy, and can take some amount of punishment such as stepping on or being dropped. (LOL)

Obviously for this size, if you need a CPU fan, you need to look for 1U server heatsink.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case and layout

Pros: Layout for the wiring is great. Location of fans and drives are also good for the tiny form factor. Low voltage and paired well for setups that just need the mobo and that is all.

Very study feel and great access for a tiny board.

Port already drilled out for an antenna mount. Normally I would have to dremel it myself and cover that up with the nuts/washers, since I can't machine a smooth hole for the life of me. This one was already done and in a good spot.

Cons: THE BLUE LEDS!!!!! My goodness, the lights are definitely bright and plentiful. I didn't want to pry it back open to disable the LED, but put it into a drawer to prevent my eyes from getting burned.

No front USB ports.

Other Thoughts: This is definitely not meant for boards with drives and expansion in mind. There is no way you can fit any drive other than a HD or SSD drive in there. There isn't even a lot for anything to match up anyhow, rear or front.

My particular board, I did have ot take out the power port on the side of the case. It came off with a couple of twists with a needle nose pliers, but that is more the interaction of the mobo I bought and this case.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Mini-ITX case

Pros: Very small case, also it's well-built and really sturdy. I've paid a lot more for ATX mid-towers that were flimsier than this. Though tight, you should be able to fit two 2.5" laptop hard drives or SSDs inside without too much difficulty.

The external laptop-style PSU is nice.

Cons: Well, not a con for me, but this thing is TINY. It has mounts for a 3.5" hard drive but you'll never fit one inside. It also has mounts for a DVD drive despite having no slot for one, I assume that internal drive mount is reused on other case designs. No room for any PCI/PCI-Express cards whatsoever, not even low profile. None of these affected me but you'll want to be aware of it when you purchase this.

The only con for me was the extremely bright power and HDD LEDs, they light up my room pretty well at night. I'll probably leave them unplugged once the system is finished since I'm building a low-power server that will be on for 24/7 use.

Other Thoughts: Built a low-power Intel Atom D525 system running CentOS 6 to run as a TeamSpeak 3 server and run the updater client. The entire system runs on about 20 watts, is quiet, and small enough to keep out of the way.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little case

Pros: Nice and sturdy Mini ITX case. This is probably one of the smallest you can get. Visually it reminds me of the old Apple Mac Mini design and I am sure the guys from Habey were aware of those similarities. Overall the quality is pretty good. I bought this along with a Giada Mini ITX board for a Clearos router configuration as it is one of the few boards that have dual GBit Nic's. The Giada board comes with a dual core Atom 1.8GHZ and an active fan. Cooling is not the best in this little case so I had to drill some extra holes in the cover plate to allow for proper ventilation. Didn't want to buy and extra fan so this did the trick for me. Temps are between 25 and 36 degrees Celsius which is acceptable. Along with this build came a 40GB Intel 310 SSD and 2GB of Samsung SO-DIMM DDR3 memory. I have the router up and running for several months now without any hick ups.

Cons: The power adapter is attached to the left side of the case so it can get in the way. Also the cable of the power adapter on the inside is very thick and hard to bend to get it out of the way and fiddle the motherboard in. This could be improved but overall a great product for the price.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking to build a little low noise, low cost router and are a Linux enthusiast, I can only recommend this thing. If available go for a complete passive build.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat on the back of a monitor

Pros: As advised elsewhere, I coupled this with Intel's "i3-2100t with the stock hsf". I would have used an SSD instead of a 7.2k drive but I was ticked at the recipient.

Using a freely acquired Rosewill Monitor Mount (RMS-MF2720), I mounted this to the back of a monitor (case had to be drilled for a couple 1/4"-20 bolts). This case - or its equivalent - will be in major use by myself going forward. Our work PCs do not need DVDs, large storage, video or expansion cards, etc.

My 'kill-a-watt' meter showed usage of about 25-35 watts during bootup and initial run time.

The external power supply is great. This keeps more heat out of the case.

Cons: The power insertion adapter had to be removed and reinstalled to insert the motherboard. That was trivial.

Other Thoughts: This is my first review. If 10 people find it useful, I may write another.
