Summary: I spent a good amount of time looking at cases for my media center PC, and I settled on the Antec. This case is very small, and it is the perfect size to sit next to my TV. I coupled this case with the ASUS H97I-Plus motherboard and the Intel i3 4130T CPU.

Summary: allow me to say that 99% of mini ITX case was built with the wrong idea in mind, they accept ITX mother board but build like a file cabinet that can host 4 or 5 ITX boards in side, which makes you wonder what's the point of making cases ITX format in the first place?
Summary: Purchased this case specifically for its size to be used as an HTPC. I have had the system up and running for a week and am happy with the purchase. The case is a tight fit on the inside with a mini ITX board, but had no issues installing 2, 2.5" drives.
Excerpt: Good: it's one of the smallest ITX case. Good ventilation. The 90watt power supply is decent. And at 19volt, it could be used to power some laptops too.Con: The back side cover by the hard drive is a basically solid plastic sheet, with very limited holes.
Summary: This is overall a good solution for mounting your computer behind your monitor and if you're careful with your cabling you can give the appearance from the front of your monitor of it being an all-in-one without the expense or limited options of most AIO's.
Works perfectly with my HTPC. Love the included power supply.

Summary: I really love this case. I mean a lot. I'm using it with a little mini ITX AM1I-A motherboard and Athlon 5350 APU for an HTPC. I'm just tickled pink at its performance and convenience. Specifically: 1. I'm so pleased that it comes with its own power supply.
Summary: Everything is tight. And cramped. Very cramped. All that being said, here's what I love about the case. 1. You can mount up to two 2.5" hard drives in it. 2. Can mount this thing behind your computer using the included VESA mount. 3. You don't need to buy a PICO PSU.
Summary: I've built from Massive servers down to a few Mini ITX builds but this was my first time with this case. My previous mini ITX builds had been on cases with fill ATX power supplies, full height CD drives and 3+ 3.5" HDDs.
Summary: I bought 4 so far. Very tight up front. Usually have to remove the front and sides to get the motherboard installed. If the 24 pin power connector is towards the side of the MB away from the PSU the power cable .5" too short for good routing. Wish it came with front panel USB3 support.
Summary: Very nice, I was able to place my SSD, micro atx board with it's i5 processor and the CPU fan that came with it. I thought I would need to buy a small form factor CPU fan, but it wasn't necessary. I even used two dimms with those big heatsinks and they fit perfectly.
