XION HTPC Series XON-810PCB-RD icro ATX / Mini ITX Slim Desktop Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case w/ 450W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: One of the best HTPC cases you could ask for within the range...and compared to some which cost more. This is for the intermediate builder on up. Not recommended for amateurs because of tight fit.

Cons: I gave the cheap mouse and keyboards away, and replaced the fans for quieter, longer lasting ones. (Kind of tricky because you either have to cut wires or open the power supply.)

Soft screws and sockets mean that this is a great case for the final build. Not built for constant disassembly/reassmbly.

Other Thoughts: Pretty!

ASUS F1A75-I Deluxe FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Travel HTPC built with this board, an A4-3300, 2x2GB DDR3 RAM, all housed in an ANTEC ISK 100 case. Runs everything I throw at it, including Blu-Rays from an external drive. Really couldn't ask for more! Can't comment on the remote because I use a wireless KB and mouse which suit me just fine, but am impressed that it came with one nonetheless.

Cons: Absolutely none...IF you know what you're doing, plan properly, and know what to expect. See Below.

Other Thoughts: Most of the complaints and lower ratings I have read here relate to poor planning or novice-level builds. If you do the research properly, it's easy to find out what will likely fit and what won't. Stock coolers work and fit fine on this board and in the smallest case, which is what it was designed for. It's not the board's fault if you don't do your own homework prior to spending your cash on accessories that don't fit, or if your electromechanical skills aren't up to the task.

TRENDnet TEW-623PI Wireless N Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n 32-Bit PCI Rev. 2.1/2.2/2.3 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Replaced my girlfriend's "g" usb with this card. Have owned this model twice before, and it installs without a hitch. Gets top speed when paired with TrendNet's routers (after you tweak the router's defaults).

Cons: None. Zip. Zero. Zed. Null set.
