Great little box within it's limitations
Pros: Rock solid aluminum construction and good design. Power supply is just fine for the types of hardware that will work.
Cons: It's tempting to put too beefy of a machine in here. :) The blue power LED is awfully bright.
Other Thoughts: Plan on using a low-wattage CPU,a lower-profile heatsink and a single SATA 2.5in hard drive. I used an Intel Core i3-3225 (55w TDP) with a Dynatron T459 heatsink and a Intel SSD. THIS IS TOO MUCH HEAT for this case. I would recommend a 35W CPU like the new Haswell i3-4130T. Unfortunately, that wasn't available when I purchased and I really wanted the HD4000 graphics. To compensate for the additional heat load, I machined the top plate on my CNC router with a grid of holes. If Habey offered an add-on top plate with good ventilation it would really help. Still, I highly recommend this case!

Pros: Very nice box, good assembly. Perfect for low power machine only.
Cons: Only one Sata power cable, you'll need an adapter for 2nd sata drive.
