1 out of 5 eggsInferior case, deffective

Pros: It's made of metal, that is the only pro.

Cons: I started out removing the top 4 screws with a #1 Phillips, got to the CD/SSD/HDD tray and the screws are softer than butter, I had 1 strip. That took an hour to extract.
After getting my board and SSD mounted. I closed the case and plug in the power plug...To my surprise the receiver pushed into the case. I had to take it apart AGAIN.

The power wire inside the case is broke and does not stay. I had to run the electrical connection out a DB0 serial port. There is significant failures with this case. Manufacturer - DO NOT CONTACT ME, you make garbage, I want no more garbage, free or not..... Garbage is not welcome. People DO NOT buy this case.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY... whish I could upload pics and vids.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear the issues you have. We'd like to replace it with a new one if you want. You can reach us at 909-594-7600 x 107 or Thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsFor the money, this is the best it gets

Pros: As a professional tech builder of 20 years, I have a lot of good things to say about this case. The 3mm thickness is amazing; which makes it not only solid, but a good heat radiator. The actual case is better looking in life than as shown in the OEM photos. Habey raises the SSD mount so that the power and sata cables connect without rubbing against the mount plate. The pre-cut holes for antenna (2) and com ports are perfect. The box packaging is thick and insulated by poly-foam in a way that it can survive a football punt by an insane shipper. The case is perfect for low power 2-in-1 combo boards. It is super easy to mount the motherboard. They include all screw sets and ties; they even had the proper SSD screws, which were color coded. The box is attractive as a HTPC and the power button has a beautiful glow that truly makes the box pretty while in use.

Cons: For the price I paid, I should not be complaining. But there are many issues with this box. My power supply enclosure was delivered broken. It opened and bits of plastic fell out. These were the plastic pins that hold the halves of the power casing together. I will have to crazy glue it back shut, but it does power the unit. There are NO side USB ports. This is a very big disappointment. Most units like these may not have them on the front but this unit has none at all. The casing for the DVD shelf is solid, but it is a huge hassle to take apart just to mount the SSD. But I would rather a huge hassle, then a bad SSD mount altogether, which many other brands have not perfected. Had it not been for these flaws, I would have given this case 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I welcome the OEM to contact me about this case. I am going into production to sell about 50 a month. If this case were improved, I would stick with it.. even if cost $5 more per case to just get those extra USB ports on the side or front.

5 out of 5 eggsI Love This Little Guy!

Pros: Solid material, decent power supply, room for 2 drives, holes for airflow, great packaging, fast shipping (as always)

Cons: Lack of instructions (you have to remove the control board to really fit your motherboard in The manual wasn't super clear and I had to trouble getting it to boot at first.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking at this, I assume you're considering the small space for a linux-box, mini-server, media center, etc. That's why I pulled the trigger on this unit. At inches of height, I was able to fit a decent aftermarket CPU cooler, and have plenty of room for cable routing on the edges.

I was also able to get a 2nd fan to blow air out which was nice.

I was able to get a SSD on the side closest to where the CPU cooler would be, in addition to the included bracket mount. 3 inches is perfect, I thought anything less was way too small and I'm glad I chose this over the 2.5 inch units. The price was very reasonable, and after spending some time routing the cables I'm very happy.

I'm running Ubuntu out of this box, plus using this as a media server and streaming media to my phone, as well as hosting a game server and several other things. Fantastic box, super small and perfect for media center with a small footprint and solid construction.

2 out of 5 eggsPower supply has failed

Pros: nice looking case, small, cheap, metal

Cons: External 12 volt power supply has failed. two halves of the case will not stay together.

Other Thoughts: following up on previous review. power supply has now failed after less then 3 days of uptime. Looks like a new one will cost 25 to 50 bucks. so not really as cheap a case as you would think.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsGood case for HTPC

Pros: I got the case onsale at Newegg. The price is excellent for the quality. This is OEM so it does not not come with instruction. However, instruction can be downloaded at

Cons: As previous reviewer mentioned, the screws are very tight. I broken 1 screw while opening the case. Fortunately, the case comes with screws that can be used as replacement. I took 1 egg off on harddisk installation. I didn't have cd rom and tried to make more room between CPU and harddisk, so I removed the CD Rom frame. By mounting hd on the metal plate, there was no room between hd and the plate for SATA power to be inserted. I ended up mounting the harddisk below the cd rom frame.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid metal, some build quality issues

Pros: Nice solid metal case. A top and bottom plate that removes with 4 screws. Internal drive cages allow some combination of 2.5/3.5 and slim DVD drive. 0

Cons: Case screws seemed to be fixed with lock-tite. I broke one of them when removing the drive cage. It will have to be drilled out and re-tapped to secure the cage. No printed instructions. Silver finish with white plastic drive cover and buttons look cheap up close.

Other Thoughts: It was inexpensive, and will do the job. Use better quality screws that don't strip in the holes.

5 out of 5 eggsGood HTPC case

Pros: Well built case. It is slightly larger than I expected, but the built quality is excellent. Someone may argue the heat vent to be insufficient, but for my purpose, it is totally okay. I didn't put a gaming gig in it (there is no way to put an add-on video card) with killer core i7 CPU. Instead, I bought ASRock H81 ITX MB, put a Haswell i3 4130 with the factory heatsink and fan. The fan can be heard from time to time, but the case is never hot to touch.

I used Kill-A-Watt to measure the power consumption. The internal power supply is capable of 120W while the external brick is rated as 60W. The system only peaks at 50 W with Minecraft client and server running, and idles around 20W. It works great.

The case has a plate near the top which has various openings for mounting drives. I don't have any need to put an internal optical drive in, so I took out a 'daughter plate' from it that gives me enough space to put one or two SSD in the case and still have room between the SSD and the top of the heatsink fan.

Cons: Should provide a "cover" for the optical drive opening. The existing cover plate is for the slot loading optical drive and can be taken out if a normal tray loading optical drive is in place. For those who don't use an optical drive, it will be great if there's a cover for it.

Other Thoughts: I got it at the sale, which is a good price for a small case like this.

4 out of 5 eggsNice and cheap case for HTPC

Pros: Good price for $39.99 plus tax. Sturdy and nice looking. Easy installation with plenty of room compared to EMC-600SL. First of all, it is better to use low power CPU like Athlon 5350, G2030T or i3 3220T that are less than 35W since the air flow for this case is not good. I add three old 40mmx10mm fans to blow out the hot air. for G2030 (55W) and only install one 120G SSD. The CPU temp is around 32C - 45C (room is around 20C) .Installation was done around 40 minutes. So far it runs great with Windows 7 under my TV stand.

Cons: The AC power adapter can be more powerful with UL certificated. The power adapter with the case is 60W and can't find UL mark on it. Now I have to remember to unplug it at night before going to sleep.

Other Thoughts: Compared to EMC-600SL which is silver brush, EMC-600SL does look better. But EMC-800S is good enough for its look.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good case

Pros: The case seems sturdy.
The case comes almost entirely apart for access to different areas.
The case comes with a lot of extras screws just in case.
With enough wiggling and experimenting I did manage to get an ASRock AD2550R/U3S3 Mini ITX Server Motherboard to fit into this.

Cons: The case comes with no real instructions. Some labels (like "A", "B", and "C") are stamped into the metal of the case itself in a few places to give you some hints. You can find a semblance of a manual online which illustrates that yes, you should take the case almost completely apart in order to fit your components into it. Contrary to the online manual you cannot fit both an optical drive and two 2.5" drives into this case. You can fit two 2.5" drives *or* you can fit an optical drive and a 2.5" (fitting the hard drive in with the optical drive requires a *very* low profile motherboard though). Or maybe you can fit all three in at once but I can't figure out how you would do this given the instructions available. The included power cables include one a single SATA power port so you also have to supply a splitter if you want to put two SATA devices into the case.

The PSU is an external brick, not a part of the case itself in case you misunderstood what "120W Internal Power Supply" means. Input to the case itself is via a laptop-style DC power port.

Most of the screws on the unit I received were overtightened. I stripped two of them trying to get them unscrewed. But, as mentioned in the pros, the case came with a bag of extras...

This is a small case and fitting your desired hardware inside might prove tricky. This is made slightly trickier by a power cable that runs from the rear of the case up to the front where the internal component of the PSU is housed.

Other Thoughts: Overall, seems like a decent enough product. An entirely internal PSU would have been nice. Also including a manual in the box would have helped. Or even providing a manual online with more than an exploded view of the components. But after a couple hours tinkering I got things working so I shouldn't complain too much.

4 out of 5 eggsGood news, bad news

Pros: Cheap. Sturdy metal components. Simple to open and close. No-brainer to use!

Cons: Awkward to mount a case fan. There are airflow obstruction issues with an Intel i3 CPU + cooler and heatsink. This requires some creativity to resolve.

Other Thoughts: I recommend only using an SSD for storage and an external optical disk (E.g. portable USB-connected optical drive) if a motherboard requiring a CPU heatsink+fan is employed - pretty much anything except an Intel Atom CPU board. Be sure to investigate ahead of time whether or not all desired inside-the-case components will fit.
