Summary: This was my first ITX build so I chose a name brand case. Assembly was a breeze with this case; it is huge for an ITX build. Easily takes real ATX power supply, real 3.5" hdd, and could hold a cutting edge video card.
Pros: Looks Good, Plenty Of Room, Takes ATX Power Supply
Cons: Huge For ITX MoBo Only Case, Some Slightly Shoddy Assembly From Factory, Fans Are REALLY Cheap
Summary: I used this box to build a graphics workstation with a ultra durable gigabyte mother board. The large fan behind the front cover sends air over the drives, keeping them nice and cool. Like others, i ended up removing the smaller fan in the back, which makes lots of noise but moves little air.
Summary: Lots of room to work. Its looks good and has a small footprint on my desk. My only negative is that the fit of cover could be a bit better. Thumb screw holes on cover and case structure could be better aligned.
Summary: This is a nice mini-itx case that has support for long graphics cards. The motherboard standoffs were a little difficult to install, and felt like they were cross threading, and the front 120mm fan is noticeably audible. Otherwise, this is a nice small form factor case for a full featured computer.
Summary: I'm surprised by comments that say that this case is bigger than anybody expected, because the dimensions are listed right on the listing. I used this to replace a smaller but equally (or more) expensive APEX MI-008 Tower Black P4 Chassis with 250W Itx Psu+sata Power Supply , which is as compact as...
Good case, could be a bit larger all round though.

Summary: There are a lot of mini itx cases, this one is good because you can put a full size PSU and DVD burner/blu ray in it. Bad thing is it gets cramped and HOT very easy. My build got to hot a few times.
Summary: This was the first time I put together a Mini-ITX desktop. I was very satisfied with its size and weight. Very easy to handle. Space is confined on the inside but it is well managed. It comes with tons of extra screws and ZIP TIES. The extra ZIP TIES were well utilized in organizing all the cables.
Summary: Overall great case. Pros: Three front usb connections 2 usb 2.0 1 usb 3.0. Supports long graphics cards. Takes three thumb screws to take off the case. Supports full psu, for the size its a great HTPC and/or gaming case.
Summary: Very satisfied with the case. Compact but easy to work inside, other than putting the power supply in last after assembly. Seems to keep the cpu at an acceptable temperature. I definitely recommend the 2nd 12CM fan to help cool the hard drives as the front fan is a little weak as far as air flow.
