Pros: Small, Quiet, Efficient.
Cons: No problems yet.
Other Thoughts: I wanted a quiet, small, low power pc and selected this box to build in. I installed an ASRock H81M-ITX LGA 1150 motherboard and added a 35W Intel i3-4130T, 4 GB of 1.35V RAM, and a 128GB SSD. I installed Linux from USB stick, and booted it up. My kill-a-watt reads 13 watts idling (no counting monitor).
One reviewer had problems getting his motherboard in the box. Although it did initially look like it was going to be a tight fit for me as well, my motherboard dropped in easily.
One reviewer wanted a larger power supply, but for me 90 watts is probably double what I need. Also, note that power supplies tend to be less efficient when either very lightly or heavily loaded. So a larger power supply would probably lead to more power losses for the vast majority of users. And how many hundreds of watts would you really want to dissipate in such a small box anyway?
