nMEDIAPC Black Steel (1.0mm SECC) HTPC 1800B Mini ITX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs looks like 600 dollar AV item 01/22/2015

This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Steel (1.0mm SECC) HTPC 1800B Mini ITX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: low profile, Nice legs, well designed, rubber hdd mounts, optical 5.25 slot, nice power/sign, not a high-beam hdd led, USB/OD cove/flap, well designed inside and out,

Cons: not a standard PSU (i elected to use the PICO-PSU) low profile (but that is what i wanted), no USB-3.0, some vibration when DVD/BD drive spins up! (i used the rubber grommets on DVD instead of SSD as the ssd does not vibrate)

Other Thoughts: this is by far the best HTPC case for the money (if you chose to use the PICO PSU) you can fit a small Micro-ATX MOBO.
i used this case for celeron 1820T and just bought another for my I-3 2100T setup using ECS MOBO's (they have the best fan control) SSD and Samsung 2TB 2.5" drives and BD writers !

those using rosewill low profile HSF run (not quiet !!!) but dead silent with CPU's never exceeding temps of 49 deg C.

wiring management if using something other than PICO PSU's can be a pain but well worth it!!!!

5 out of 5 eggs It has to work with Windows7 12/29/2014

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: everything!!!

HDMI, WiFi, SILENCE, SSD, GIGABIT NIC, LOW POWER, EFI, USB 3.0

Cons: nothing maybe strange WiFi card format !! and only 2 usb's

Other Thoughts: I hear allot about no love for windows 7!
that is bull !!!!!
If it installs Ubuntu then it must take windows 7 64
(it will not take 32 bit OS because i don't think it allows for legacy bios)
having said that no 32 bit OS supports EFI (only legacy) - including windows vista - 7 - 8/8.1
and you are not able to install windows 7 because your USB flash drive is NOT EFI boot-able (modifications are necessary to accomplish that -- flash drive must be FAT32 and some files from install.wim must be migrated) windows 8/8.1 have no such limitation
anyways i will make you tube video of both processes
1. making USB flash drive with 64 bit OS capable on booting legacy and EFI MOBO setups (keep in mind you can't install EFI OS on MBR disk - must cleaned using diskpart - beforehand - i will include that in the video)
2. installation of windows 7 in both 64 and 32 GB versions


will post back with the link and exact tile for easy searching (just in case new-egg decides to remove the link)

so LONG HAPPY NEW YEAR!

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome concept 12/29/2014

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 64GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 64GB eMMC Storage

Pros: everything is a pro! here - size, SSD, price, silent, HDMI, hardware decoding, VGA for older setups, WIFI.

Cons: somewhat under-cuter CPU (but then again they went for price and energy efficiency not HIGH SPEED PERFORMANCE)

Other Thoughts: I hear allot about no love for windows 7!
