Nice looking budget HTPC case.

BeDaHHH, Amazon
6 days ago
  • Summary: Needed a budget case for a HTPC. Chose this one because the it was slim and look very modern in the front. The case is very solid and I was able to fit the following inside: -DVD-RW -SSD -HDD -Floppy Disc drive Card Rader + USB 3.0 port. I didn't think I could fit that much in there, but it works. Under the the location where a floppy disc would go was enough room for a SSD. The only problem was that there is only 2 SATA adapters and 2 MOLEX adapters.

These are good simple cases

Michael J. Kozicki, Amazon

  • Summary: These are good simple cases. I have built a few small office computers using these and they seem to be a well built case. Overall very good value for the money. I don't know long term how the power supply will hold up but I have had no problems with the 2 that I have purchased and they have been running 3+ months now I think.

Bad design

S. Fritz "fritzbie", Amazon

  • Summary: On-off button broke after a year of use. We leave the computer on most of the time and it would have only seen 365 cycles maximum. Not a long term design.

Great case for building an htpc or steambox

  • Summary: Great case for building an htpc or steambox. Low profile stuff is required though so you're not going to fit a beefy gpu in here.

JStewart, Amazon

  • Summary: Decent mATX case but the top mounted fan is useless for my setup so I had to do some customization. Included PSU has not fried yet and it is pushing a FX6350 in a render node that will stay at 100% load for hours on end.

if you are looking for a slimline case with a built in PSU this is the best I've found

Bob, Amazon
29 December 2014
  • Summary: For the price, if you are looking for a slimline case with a built in PSU this is the best I've found. That being said the build quality is decent but the front power button is very weak, I had to re-attach it after about 6 months of use.

Good buy for the money!

Donald Graham "computer repair tech", Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: I have purchased 2 of these Slim cases, 1 for my own office and another to build for a client. I find them to be a very good value for the money. There is plenty of room for an SSD and HDD for storage. The power supply is more than adequate for any components you can fit in here. I do like the space available for a normal DVD instead of having to put in a slim drive. The only slight drawback may be the side exhaust case fan.

Bought two, one was a killer

Chris M., Newegg
15 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought two of these cases w/ PSU and built two identical home theatre PC's with all the exact same components. After a year, one started to exhibit weird behavior such as turning on after it's been turned off. I also experienced a few random crashes with it. One day, I go to turn it on and my SSD has failed and isn't recongnized by any computer.
  • Pros: -Cheap -No sharp edges -OK airflow if using low power parts
  • Cons: -Power supply failed and killed an SSD

Can't beat it for the price

David, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: The case is heavy and well engineered. I was wondering how I was going to install the drives until I discovered the drive bay swings up and out of the case, no tools required.

Good Value

Paul M., Newegg
7 December 2014
  • Pros: Well made case, compact for smaller basic systems, enough power for most applications (Hard Drive, DVD Burner etc), stylish. Easy to install components.
  • Cons: Documentation is basic, and 'faded' on small paper sheets, but plugs were clearly marked anyway. Drive door was not attached, was NOT broken, just not installed. Found the door's spring and was able to install. Guess the production line was crimped for time.
