This review is from: nMEDIAPC Red Wood Wood/Steel HTPC 8000 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: Looks wonderful
Cons: 4th 3.5" drive bay doesn't have it's mounting points drilled out & rubber placed in it, effectively making it 3 3.5" drive bays unless you want to mod your case a bit.
2 wood screws used to mount the bar which holds the drives to the case, no noise padding no anchor points for machine screws -- Seriously it should have 4 mount points to keep that bar attached & secure
92mm Fans suggested on front gills for gamer rigs but no mount points put in place, and the front dust filters are non-removable
Included fan is connected via molex instead of 3 or 4pin for motherboard speed controls
Front bezel has minor issues with the drive flap fitting & eject button, roughly a 1mm shave around the edges of each may fix that.
Front bezel is plastic made to look like brushed metal -- would pay a bit more for better construction there.
2 Power LEDs are spliced together instead of 1 cable coming out & properly hiding the cable bloat
No connection point up front for the Programmable LCD adding 2 more cables running into the case on top of the 4 cables to get the Audio/USB/Card Reader hooked up
1 of the 2 screws used to mount motherboard tray to bottom of case is stripped out completely in mine with scratch marks showing a running power screwdriver had dragged across the metal.
Other Thoughts: If a version 2 is released buy that, in it's current condition not recommended for most peopleREAD FULL REVIEW
