2 out of 5 eggs very Disappointed 02/02/2009

This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Steel HTPC 2000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros:

Looks nice, has an Optional inexpensive LCD display available (would be nice if newegg would put a link to it on this page).

Cons:

Poor build quality, front USB ports don't work (see other thoughts), card reader drops out every now and then.

Other Thoughts:

I verified the USB headers on my IP35 Pro XE Mobo all worked using a rear slot USB panel. Verified the internal cable was pinned correctly for my Mobo, and was connected correctly at the header on both ends, but neither of the left USB front panel connectors will work, and crash the PC when anything is plugged in to them (tried several drives and mouse). That leaves one front USB connector (to the right of the card reader), and the little white plastic rectangle inside the port broke off and was stuck in the cable I plugged into it the very first time! So now I have no usable front panel USB ports.

I've built around 20 PCs for me, friends, and family. I've used cases that were very cheap, and used Lian Li cases, NONE of them ever had a broken USB port, this case has 3!

Also I couldn't put a second Noctua 120mm fan in the empty right side, the spinner hit the case louvers (the 120mm fan that comes in the left side works though).

All in all, I don't recommend this case.
