Pros: Looks the part of a HTPC. Doesn't clash with the decor.
Cons: This case is of very poor build quality, and had to replace the power supply to allow for an NVidia GTX-560. Fans are loud. Worst of all, you better be sure of where you want to put your expansion cards.
Summary: Reading the reviews, I almost thought the psu was bad... until I found the on/off switch and switched it on.
Pros: Nice little case... I moved my everyday ATX setup to this smaller case to save space. The case arrived promptly and I moved my mobo, cards, hard drive and optical drive and, AFTER I found and turned on the psu, came up cool and quiet (it was noisy in my old mid tower).
Cons: Nothing major... hard drive a little tricky to get in. PSU on/off switch not easy to spot.
Pros: Um... it comes with rubber feet... that's about it.
Cons: 1. The PSU died after three weeks. 2. The sides of the case were dented. 3. I found the plastic pegs holding on the front panel to be broken upon opening the box. I had to tape it on. 4. Cheap construction. I bought this case because I thought it looked sturdy but it is anything but. 5. The face for the optical drive doesn't fit with the drive I bought for my HTPC (LG UH12NS29), so I had to remove it. I will be RMAing this.
Summary: Video Cards must not be taller than the back plate, or case cover will, not close. Cards must not be longer than 6.5 inches. This varies depending on the physical size of the power supply. Video cards with power plugs on the top edge of the card are not compatible with this case. All Power plugs must be at the rear of card to ensure to cover of case closes.

Pros: Supports: ATX & mATX Boards Full Sized Power Supplies 2 Optical Drives, 2 Hard drives (3 if you use the floppy slot) One of the most Roomy Media Center cases you will find.
Cons: Sharp Edges! Will slice your fingers if you are not careful. Blue Power LED is Bright Red HD LED is so Dim, you can barely even see it even in the dark. Headphone Jack is tight, that even with every component in the case, to keep the case from sliding back, you have to hold the case down to plug headphones in. Sub Standard Power Supply included. Use at own risk.
Summary: It's a really nice case, but keep in mind that the case is a hair small. you really shouldn't expect to get fullsized graphic cards in here and still have air flow. good for basic use, but if u are worried about air flow, get a regular case. It's my own fault tho, and the case is really nice, no reason to remove any stars.
Pros: Bought it over a year ago and it's pretty nice. Its full sized, holding 2 graphic cards and a full sized board.
Cons: Has overheating issues. very hard to push air around in this case. I ended up being forced to buy water cooling to keep the CPU cool (4 core AMD, 3.5ghz). The bluray drive i have is to long and covers up 2 of the 4 ram slots. The PSU has cables that just get in the way of everything. I wish the case was 1 inch longer in every direction because right now it is to tight. I ended up breaking 3 Sata connections on the bored because it was so tight getting everything to fi...
Summary: I was able to fit an ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor BX80557E6750 with stock heatsink running on G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI and CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048 for a total of 6GB ram.
Pros: Looks great along with other HT components. No need to modify the case for any of my existing PC components, power supply is more than enough for a basic to intermediate gaming setup.
Cons: The case is a bit restrictive, so components have to be installed in order, otherwise you won't have room to run cables or organize PC components and have to take it back apart.
Summary: Also, suggest eliminating the CD/dvd door trap and just place your CD/DVD where it will be flush with the case front.
Pros: Good looking case and good unit for the price.
Cons: Would be nice if the case could be purchaed minus the power supply or furnished with a full modular case. Stuffing all of the unused cable is a nightmare. I plan to replace with a full modular PS.
