Pros: Pro: The ceiling on this case is so highly intelligent. Seldom do people stack PC's on top of each other due to heat problems. The mesh at the top of the case is ideal for pushing out heat which usually accumulates at the top of these long media PCs. I mean, heat getting stuck at the center of the Media PCs has long been a problem, imho. As a result, media PCs overcompensate for this accumulation by adding 2 large, side in-take fans (one 120mm on each side of case) and two small exhaust (two 80 mm next to each other). This works, but generally not good -- especially when one of these large mesh's can do the trick!
Tilt the media pc, and exhaust still comes up from the top through the side of the case. Genius.
Cons: One caveat: Can't hurt to turn side air ducts into side air fans. My reason is the increase in air circulation still assists the internal components (e.g., video card, cpu heatsink and fan, and north and south heatsink) to move the stagnant, hot air up through the mesh at the top. More side fans, the better; that is, this will maximize air cooling through the plastic mesh at the top.
One clairvoyant vision: turn back fans into in-take fans. With the mesh at the top, all fans need to turn inward.
Other Thoughts: for crying out loud, put the front ports back on the front, not at the top of the case. This is a media PC. When i plug my microsoft 360 controller ports into the PC, the controller plugs will stick out the top. My tv stand can do it, but i would imagine not many others can.
front usb ports need to be usb 3.0, please. Why havn't all cases switched to this standard yet?
understandable limitations (due to the small size of this case):
what the heck happened to the 3.5 external drive?
Case needs more room for a more powerful power supply. I want to stick a minimum of a 650-700 watt psu in here.
Otherwise, fabulous work.
Pros: Lots of fans and cool case
Cons: The case can only fit an 8 inch long video card while bundled with a full-size ATX PSU. I could have opted for a microatx psu and put a 10 inch long video card instead, but I did not! Buyers beware, PSU placement in this case was very poor; instead, the psu should have been put on the adjacent corner of the case as not to affect the video card size.
Power light is too bright. I disabled it by pulling the power from the motherboard. HDD light is nonexistent (even with power!).
Other Thoughts: Antec's bundled power supplies are always poor. I would prefer they didn't include a PSU with their case, and lowered the price of this product as an alternative.
I'd also like to see an anti-static casing.
I guess, aside from PSU location ebb, this is a great case (minus the PSU).
This review is from: nMEDIAPC ZE-C68 USB 2.0 3.5 Drive Bay, All-in-one Card Reader w/ USB Port
Pros: Fast detection, bonus USB slot, and fits in a 2.5" drive.
Cons: 1. As everyone else has been saying: I need to put SD card upside down!
2. The card reader became dusty after two months of no-use; thus, unreadable. Here's my story: I inserted my SD card, PC asked me to format card before use (like card was brand new or something). This was strange because I knew I had information on the card. I took out card, and a a thick layer of dust covered the gold connectors. I had to blow the dust off the card and out of the device for everything to work. All in all, I would recommend preparing a can of air duster -- or heave a deep breath!
Other Thoughts: Excellent device, but I would prefer two USB ports in the front instead of one. In addition, please make them USB 3.0, which is backwards compatible with usb 2.0 and usb 1.1!READ FULL REVIEW
