Summary: I purchased it over 8 months ago and use it as a MCE htpc every day and it works without any issues. It fits perfectly in a smaller side shelf in my tv stand. everyone who comes to my house see's this and want to buy one too. It uses a power supply brick like your laptop's and a mini-itx dc-dc converter is located inside the case. I highly recommend it if you need something small to fit into your cabinet.
Summary: I write this review after owning the Antec ISK 300-65 for about three months. I like this case. It allowed me to cut the cord and it serves as my HTPC, 2TB DVR and has two media center extenders (DMA2200) attached wireless N. WAF is high. This is the smallest case I could find and still barely fit all of the components that I wanted.
Summary: I picked this out for a HTPC build I was doing. I wanted mini-ITX, but I was worried that the stock cooler wouldn't be able to fit into these small cases. That simply wasn't an issue with this case. The power connector could have another few inches on the cable, but other than that it was a dream to work with. Be sure to plan ahead and put your fans in first.
Summary: This is a great product. They add in all the extra things you need to pack your cords cleanly and ensure good airflow. The top part of the housing (that holds the slim DVD and the two 2.5" hdd) comes off and allows for easy installation of the motherboard. You still have to squeeze in the screws for the MB, but once that is done, it's clean. The fit is tight, but that's what you want from this little guy. Love the external power supply.
Summary: Got this as a solution to my firewall appliance foot print problem. It works very well and has been problem free so far. It was relatively easy to assemble and is an afterthought at this point. I recommend it for a small foot print solution.
Summary: I bought this to replace another mini-ITX that I had that used a standard power supply. However, getting a good mini-ITX power supply was proving to be more costly (the fan kept going out them). I decided to just buy this case that had a power supply that was higher efficiency with less noise. I didn't need the extra power because the board I was running was an Atom board using a WD Caviar Green drive. Essentially here are the pros and cons.
Summary: Bought this case for an Asus Atom/Ion board and love it. The form factor is great and and assembly was wonderful. In fact, many of the Atom based mini-ITX boards come with their own power supply and thus you can remove the Antec PDU inside this case and make more room for ventilation. One of the few mini-ITX's I found that had spots for a fan, much less two.
Summary: I've always had good luck with Antec cases. This was no different. Paired with: GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3 Intel core i3 540 (stock cooler) OCZ Vertex 2.5" SSD Everything fits fine as long as you take your time. I bought two Enermax 80mm fans to use. The Antec fan wasn't as quiet as I wanted (on low) so I bought a couple of enermax fans (uses magnets directly to spin the blade). The whole thing is amazingly silent.
Summary: I used this case in a HTPC build. The case arrived nicely packaged and I opened it up and went to work. PLENTY of room for the Zotac motherboard, ION processor and 4GB RAM. I installed a Solid State drive and a Blu-ray/DVD-R drive and fired it up. Worked great from the start. Completely silent in my entertainment stand. Case never gets warm, even after watching a full-length HD 1080P movie. Great case and Amazon did a great job as always.
Summary: After installing everything (Zotac Ion g-e, 2.5" hdd, sony optiarc slim dvd) and playing with it for a while in the shop I wanted to go mini-itx for all my PC's. The on-board power supply: is electrically very quite and runs cool with this setup. The case it's self has plenty of ventilation and even though the case fan is really a single speed unit, it is very quite.
