Showing Results: Most Recent
Pros: Very inexpensive
Looks sharp and unique
Mostly non-sharp edges on the interior
Cons: Zero cable management
Undersized fans w/ no motherboard connectors
Tabs on side doors bend easily
Some sharp edges
Front panel difficult to release
Optical drive must be pushed in to close it (button is covered up when flap opens)
Other Thoughts: It's a cheap, fun-looking case with all the room I needed. No eggs were removed for corners cut on the design, as I know that's what keeps costs down (although I wish HEC had used 120mm case fans. It wouldn't have been THAT much more expensive to fill the mesh.)
1 egg deducted for the design of the optical drive door. I really, really don't like having to push on the open drive in order for it to retract.
Pros: Beautiful design
Ease of setup
Lots of I/O options
6 months of flawless operation
Cons: None observed
Other Thoughts: So glad I didn't skimp when picking an HTPC. This little thing is the best. I haven't tested out its gaming capabilities, but it was only purchased for HD video streaming and Blu-Ray playback.
Can't wait to upgrade it with a nice-sized SSD.
<li>Has not had any issues yet
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Installed in a mobile gaming rig for a customer/friend. He's not one to tinker under the hood, so I can't speak to the overclocking abilities of the board. But it's main use is online gaming, and it has endured many hundreds of hours of it without a peep.READ FULL REVIEW
