This review is from: nMEDIAPC Red Wood Wood/Steel HTPC 8000 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: This was for a media PC in a bedroom furnished with dark woods and this case was a perfect match. After reading other reviews I was a bit worried this case wouldn't work out. However I only had minor problems with its assembly. Delivery was fast as always with no damage.
Cons: The built-in case fan didn't come with a molex (or any other type) connector attached. I robbed one from an old case and spliced it on. The included instructions (primarily written in Engrish) were a tad vague in areas. It claimed the case can handle up to 4 HDD's however 2 of the mount points (listed as the primary points) are nearly impossible to mount any drive without making modifications. There aren't enough screw holes. I had to mount both drives on top of those bays rather than in them. But there was plenty of room. All of these were minor inconveniences.
Other Thoughts: I didn't notice before ordering that the LCD display doesn't come with the case. I will be ordering that shortly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very nice looking unit. Easy to install. USB port works well.
Cons: USB port is the only functioning part of this unit. Windows 7 won't recognize the non-functioning ports and in fact displays an error at every boot. Its hardly worth mentioning but two of the ports are mount upside down with no markings on the faceplate indicating this is so. I find that just annoying. This was a bad purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
