Summary: The main draw of this case over cases like the Corsair 250D is the very clean design to the case (no breaks in the lines for the front). All the buttons and connectors are found on the front left of the case instead of the direct front. The inside of the case is quite cramped but this is to be expected for a SFF.
Summary: All-in-all this is pretty nice case for the price. Very roomy and the ability to fit an ATX PS is a huge plus. A little more cable management capabilities would have given this another star. This was used house my HTPC build: *** AS Rock LGA1155 Intel H77 SATA3 USB3.0 A V GbE Mini ITX Motherboard *** Kingston Technology HyperX Blu 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM (Kit of 2) *** Intel Core i3-3240 Dual-Core Processor 3.4 Ghz 3 MB Cache LGA 1155 *** 2x SAMSUNG 830 Series...
Summary: I'm using this case for a home server (samba share, web server, backup target, etc.). I wanted something cool & quiet, and found it. Assembly had a few kinks. Nothing major, but they did significantly slow down the build time. The screws holding in the hard drive trays were misaligned and over-tightened at the factory, so they were a challenge to get out without stripping them.
Summary: I built a FreeNas storage device with this case. Nice solid professional looking case. Fits in nicely in my data center. Only small annoyance is the air filter on the bottom. It falls off too easily.
Well built and economical, but check the dimensions.

Summary: I like this case quite a bit - it's not easy to get a full sized video card in there, but it *will* fit. I have a Radeon 6870 in it - and it fits very snuggly. Wiring this case up will cause your average computer builder a bit of woe since, unless you don't put much in there, there simply isn't a ton of space on the edges/etc. to run them. I'd suggest a modular power supply also.
Summary: This design is awesome and quiet. It blended perfectly in my living room, most people don't even realize it's a computer. It's elegant and sophisticated, and it pleased the wife. The problem with it is that it's too small and no cable management whatsoever.
