1 out of 5 eggs Not a HTPC Case, Sorry but true! 09/13/2009

This review is from: APEVIA Black / Green SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-GN/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: I liked the front door for the DVD drive. It didn't take me long to position my Blu-ray drive. There was also room to route cables on the underneath which made thinks cleaner inside the case.

Cons: First the power supply is loud for this to be marketed as an HTPC case. I suggest that you get a new power supply. This will be a little bit annoying since the power supply is mounted in the front of the case and a cable runs to the back. I am looking for a power supply at the moment, so trust me it isn't easy.

Second, this case is advertised as an ATX compatible, but it doesn't come with the need motherboard standoffs for an ATX configuration.

Third, the power supply is supposed to have a working LED. This one has been DOA (i.e. it never worked). I tried contacting and they have not responded.
