This review is from: nMEDIAPC Red Wood Wood/Steel HTPC 8000 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: Has an excellent look it, fits in with our classic 1940's flair style of decorating in our apartment. It has the "wife approved" factor to it which makes it nice for having it sitting out in the open in the living room. My previous case for my HTPC hardware was a regular cooler master desktop case and I wasn't allowed to have it anywhere in sight. Having this out and in the open makes it so much easier for plugging in things like USB thumb drives, charging my 3D glasses via the computers USB, or putting in a disc.
On the plus side, it forced me to clean up the living room so it will look better! I'm not known for cleaning, so i'm counting this as a plus.
It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it?
Cons: I'll agree with everyone else and say that I utterly despise the drive cage and after many hours of tinkering, I still can't get the front bezel to hit the eject button on my drive, though I think this may be to a slightly odd LITE-ON drive that I am using that always seemed to me to have a different placement for the eject button
Other Thoughts: I wish the case came with an IR receiver on the front built in so that I wouldn't have to continue using my external IR receiver.READ FULL REVIEW
