Antec ISK 110 VESA Black ABS plastic / 0.8 mm SECC Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 90W External Adapter, Up to 92% Efficiency Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: About the best bang for buck in this size with a PSU included.

Cons: Really weird case assembly. Entire PSU is not outside the case. Why?

Other Thoughts: I searched for a long time. Found lots of options. This was the best compromise of size vs features vs cost. BUT, the case panels have a weird fit that I don't understand. Feels like you're going to break it taking it apart to build the PC. What was wrong with a normal slide together panel, or even a semi-hinge on one end and screws on the other?

Also the PSU is split between a power brick outside and an adapter board inside the case. It would make much more sense to me to have the PSU as one unit outside the case and only wires inside it. The idea is small, space efficient. Why only go 3/4 of the way and compromise on the main design feature and stick more heat in the case on top of it?

Still overall, I'm satisfied. I have a 17w 1037u based board inside, and it's plenty of room and power for that. Good buy overall.

ECS NM70-I v1.0 Intel Celeron 1037U 1.80GHz BGA1023 Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Affordable and capable.

Cons: It's not faster and cheaper. :)

Other Thoughts: This is a great board for the price. I'm running it in a TINY itx case with OpenELEC on a thumb drive to stream video from my media server. It's just about perfect for the task. It could be a bit faster and smoother, but everything could. I can't wait to see a 2.5Ghz+ version of this. That will be sweet.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Does what it is supposed to at a good price.

Cons: The stupid infernal beeping. It isn't free?

Other Thoughts: I really don't understand the beeping. Let's use common sense here. The LCD comes on when the unit takes over on power failure. Your lights will be out. The unit makes some noise when it's in battery power mode. Why does it need a stupid annoying beeping sound? If they feel the overwhelming need to include the stupid beeping sound, then at least add a hardware switch to disable it. I have 2 UPS units, and the first thing I did to both of them was crack them open and rip off the speaker and toss it.

Will I still buy CP products? Sure, but it would be nice not to have to factor in cracking open a brand new product to rip out a perfectly good component so I can stand to use it. Mmmkay?
