2 out of 5 eggs The Good, the Bad and the Truth 07/07/2016

This review is from: XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black_Retail

Pros: Good size/features. Love the card reader.
Good design overall cable management was a breeze.
Got it with a rebate c couple of years back.

Cons: Fan in the power supply died after two years of light use.

Other Thoughts: The single biggest problem is the power supply. I read the reviews going in and took the gamble. Well, it did last longer than six months! The fans bearing is what failed. I might replace the fan because buying a replacement PSU will exceed what I paid for it.

2 out of 5 eggs Nightmare to keep working. 06/06/2016

This review is from: MSI AM1I AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Price was fair and the mini card slot was great for a salvaged Bluetooth/wireless card that was just laying around.

Cons: Cannot keep it working for more than an hour and a half without crashing. No temp problems whatsoever, but constant handler exception errors. After any driver update the machine locks up and requires reformatting and installing windows from scratch repairs fail every time. All things point to driver problems, but there is no consistency with which drivers are causing the problem. Using and SDD and can't find any errors with it. Might try reflashing BIOS since there isn't an updated one for mine and see if that helps.

Other Thoughts: When it works, it's great. Features are perfect. Handles multiple pptx, video and audio ques no problem

Rosewill RS-MI-01 BK - Mini ITX Tower / Desktop Computer Case - 250W Power Supply with Two (2) SATA Connectors and One (1) 20 + 4-Pin Connector
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fits in tight spaces
Good ventilation
Decent cable management (especially for a mini-itx)
Included PSU worked and more than adequate

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Making one of the 3.5" bays a 2.5" and a slight increase of overall height of .25" would make this case near perfect.

The increased height would allow for more airflow between CPU cooler and PSU (it's pretty tight in there), but in all honesty; I'm running a 5350 with a stock cooler with no additional cooling with zero heating issues.

The additional height would make for better cable management as well.

Seriously though, it's a good deal for a simple low power htpc and that's it.
