The nMEDIAPC HTPC 100BA case will let you turn any MicroATX motherboard into a home theater PC. Its standard size and muted black finish will let it blend well with standard audio components. Since it is 5.5” high there’s no need to search for low profile cards for the four expansion slots.

This fully vented case has air vents on both sides, the rear, and the top, plus a dedicated duct for the CPU. There is also a 60mm fan on the back panel for additional air flow.

The front panel is filled with convenience features to enrich your multimedia experience. The sliding panel on the left side covers two USB ports, a FireWire port and audio connections. The right panel covers a 9-in-1 card reader. Underneath the DVD door there is an LCD status panel and system control buttons. So, quit trying to cram an HTPC into a tiny case and enjoy the flexibility that nMEDIAPC gives you.

Exactly What I Wanted

Pros: This case was an absolute joy to work with. It is currently housing a 750gb SATA hdd, a SATA DVD burner, an XFX 8600GT, a PCI wireless card, and PCI tv tuner. The Power supply is of decent quality and there is plenty of room for everything.

Cons: Cooling isn't excellent, SATA cables almost didnt reach the hdd.

Other Thoughts: Vista loaded up perfectly and detected everything. Overall a great case to work with.

Beware 1st time builders!

Pros: matx case (yes that means its smaller then your average case). Matches and looks like a home theatre product. Temp censors work.

Cons: Hate the lcd screen. From far away it looks like the fan animation is going crazy. Up close it looks fine. Small "bubbly" circles animation is lame.

Very tight! No joke. First install all drives and cables then install cpu and fans. I had to remove the cpu fan two time and move around cables just to settle in the ide cables and hd's.

Do not force or "push" in the cd drive, or you will have the front bulging out. I can see why some people are having problems with their cd drives. When i first saw the flip up door i got worried, but I got lucky and it works really well.

Dvd button isnt sitting well on drive.

Built really well, except the face of the case, somewhat flimsy.

Akward hd slots. One has to sit on its side and the other has to to go upside down and to the side underneath the cd drive.

Sliding doors feel cheap.

Left compartment is really helpful!.

Right compartment is useless, to me any ways.

Other Thoughts: No real head aches here. When everything was done it wasnt to bad. Looks great with my whole setup and has good air flow. Its sitting on top of a digital reciever between xbox 360 (which is known for getting really hot) and a ps3. I was worried about having ribbons in there so I went with rounded cables.

great case

Pros: Quiet. Power supply is silent, small case fan barely make noise. It was actually silver, but silver looks great in my home theater. Nice display and great air movement.

Cons: A bit of a tight fit. You must remove power supply to replace hard driver. Only space for two hard drives and one optical drive.

Other Thoughts: Home Theater PC: AMD 3500+, 2 Gigs Corsair RAM, VisionTek HDMI X1650, Aver TVHD MC180, Asus Mobo, Thermaltake Heatsink, Samsung Spinpoint 500G HDD, Samsung 20X DVDR, in a nMedia HTPC 100SA Case.

Will likely buy a different HTPC case

Pros: Compact and generally nice looking case. LCD panel is nice, but it isn't useful in practice unless positioned at or below eye level (see cons).

Cons: Very flimsy materials. Doesn't have a good feel to it. Everything is lightweight. When I put a SD card or a USB device in the front slots, the plastic that holds the ports deforms or slips. Although the LCD panel is a nice touch, the lettering isn't viewable unless the case is positioned at or below below eye level. When in my entertainment center, it is above eye level and the LCD screen is blank.

Other Thoughts: Even with the rebate (assuming I get it), the case isn't worth the price.

Nice Case, Haven't put together yet

Pros: Good case for the money. Haven't actually put it together yet.

Cons: None, haven't tried to build my HTPC yet.

Other Thoughts: I think the $20 Rebate from NMedia was the fastest rebate I have ever received back.

HTPC 100BA CASE

Pros: The case is fairly well built and solid, fairly quiet as well. Just remember to use a very small board

Cons: Small and very tight I was expecting a bigger product. I had two disk drives and quarters were crampped for these puppies.

Other Thoughts: Power supply I would have liked to see a power switch on it.
