Pros:

Good looking case, seems solidly built. Would fit in well with the rest of the home media components.

Cons:

- Space. I don't know that you can actually do a better job than this at designing a HTPC-style case, but I'd sure like to see somebody do it. My wife had to help me multiple times at getting various things connected; much smaller hands than my ginormous meat hooks.
- Time. The build took 8 hours, which is insanely long when compared to a more typical 3 hours for me. This was mostly caused by having to work within such small confines, but was compounded by poor screw placement, having to use screws in the first place, and the instructions getting the order of operations wrong. Don't believe what they wrote, install your mobo before anything else. Or else you'll remove whatever you put in so there's enough room...
- Heat. I think this thing could use at least one more cut-out for another fan to move air through the case. Taking the lid off makes the fans slow way down almost instantly (Asus smart fan tech), seems like an airflow problem to me.

Other Thoughts:

For all my complaints, the end product is quite pleasing. And, we fit a metric ton of components into this thing. We put in 5 hard drives plus a dvd drive. I don't think the other 5.25 bay is usable because it would hit the RAM. You might be able to sneak another hard drive in there...
