Reasonably priced, super small case that supports standard parts.

Summary: Most of my grievances are about the power button and the front of the case as the difficulty to build within it is due to its size which is its major selling point. - Due to the power LED's location and brightness this will not make a good HTPC as you cannot hide it unless you dont connect it.
Pros: - Tiny case - Supports standard parts (ITX mobo, PSU, GPU all be it shorter ones) - Supports liquid cooling (I was able to get a H55 installed with little issue)
Cons: - An absolute nightmare to build in (expected that with the side of the case) - Near impossible to cable manage - Only supports 150mm GPUs. (the case could have taken longer ones if they would have put the front IO on the other side) - Extremely easy to scratch (I scratched the bezel by setting i...
Summary: Running this case with a i5-4430, 8GB of RAM, a GTX 950, 600w PSU, and Win10 on a boot SSD and a 640GB HDD. Runs beautifully, and great for small areas as a HTPC or even carrying to a LAN event. Definitely would recommend if you're just getting into small form factor PCs.
Pros: -small and lightweight -easy to use and build in -plenty of space for HDDs and SSDs -supports standard size ATX power supplies -nice ventilation
Cons: -cable management is a little difficult (I ended up shoving a lot of the cables inside the front panel holes) -no dust filters -not really a con because you definitely get what you pay for but it would be cool to get a handle on the top for easier carrying -bracket on the top used for mounting dr...
Summary: -Not too expensive, but i have it because...well it was included in a combo -Im using it as a freenas server but i only have 2 drives... -I wouldnt buy it if i had my choice of SFF cases, even for the same application
Pros: -I got it as part of an AM1 Athlon 5350 combo for $100 -Lots of air flow?
Cons: -It feels like alot of wasted space -Only room for 2 3.5" HDD's...
Summary: get this case if you want a small clean design that works in a professional or gaming environment equally well and won't break the bank.
Pros: This case does what it advertises well; it is very utilitarian, but the form has followed function gracefully even if it played second fiddle. - this is definitely one of the smaller cases still able to fit a standard ATX PSU - pricing is very good; you get more than what you pay for iny opinion....
Cons: no optical disk drive - I do think they could have fit a slim drive into this product, but I won't dock any points for this because it would disrupt the case's clean front panel design. the system used for retaining the brackets of expansion cards like GPUs is not my favorite, but it is cost-effe...
Summary: I am using this case to downsize a pfSense router I had in a large tower. I didn't want to spend $100+ on a case and this accepts a standard ATX power supply and standard 3.5" hard drive. Its a winner.
Pros: Fits standard ATX power supply Fits standard 3.5" hard drive Lots and lots of options for hardware
Cons: The case is well ventilated, but airflow can be troublesome. I am thinking of retrofitting a larger fan on the front. Included front panel components (power switch, reset switch, USB 3.0 ports) are a little flimsy
