Nice idea, but

  • Summary: a poor execution. I like the hinge feature, but that ''kickstand'' is too whimpy to be useful; it kept bending. The seconday DVD doors are another example: they keep hanging up on the 'real' DVD door. Lastly, the hard drive tray mounts directly in front of the PSU. I wasn't able to install or remove the SATA cables, once the drive was in place, in either slot. Flipping the drive around isn't possible; in one position, it interferes with the case cover guide pin.

  • Summary: Nice, solid built and functional. Exactly what I've been looking for, a small and quiet micro system. The only negative for me is the hard drive case is so close to the power supply, I can't put the hard drive there and have the cables butt against the PS cables, even with a moduler PS. I ended up using the CDROM slot. So be careful choosing your PS.
