Pros: This is one awesome Mini-ITX case with a great finish.
Using mine as a Windows 8.1 Home Server loaded with 6 - 3.5 drives and 1 - 2.5 SSD drive. And still have room for 2 more 2.5 drives on side panel, your only limited by SATA ports on motherboard. I bought some Cougar PWM fans and Corsair close loop liquid cooling system, this thing is now dead silent.
Other Thoughts: This case is capable of holding 6 - 3.5 drives and 3 - 2.5 SSD drives for a total of 9 drives in a MIni-ITX case (can't ask for more than that).
I'm using SSD for Operating system with Microsoft storage spaces managing the other 6 - 3.5 drives, configured to allocate Media, storage and client backups.
Pros: Quite impressed with the performance of this little guy, response is very snappy for a dual core. Capable of streaming 1080p 60 FPS to multiple monitors. It's an excellent desktop replacement (time to get rid of all those huge outdated desktops) and easily mounts to rear of monitor with included vesa mount.
Cons: Non thus far
Other Thoughts: My NUC setup Intel 525 mSATA drive, 8GB Crucial memory and Windows 8.1 pro 64 bit. Intel Bios are also quite impressive with lot's of features which are very versatile for different configurations. For security it has Secure boot and TPM (turned off by default). I have plans to replace all my huge desktops with NUC's.
The Haswell NUC's now includes power cord (it's a complete kit).
Wished Intel made a dual NIC model, this would make an excellent small form Untangle Server!
