Summary: A VERY decent case to build a moderate PC in. Keep in mind what you are buying and what your intended purpose is.
Pros: This a VERY nice little case. It supports a full size mini-ITX board (and what I mean by that is it has adequate space if you choose to use a board with a fairly significant sized daughter board) a 5.25, 2x3.5 drive bays, a side one and a front horizontal one under the 5.25 drive, clearance for s...
Cons: While I have a lot of good to say about the case, there are a few issues I have. Not all of these are complaints but more or less observances that I think might be helpful to other people looking to build in this case. 1 - While you can add some fans to the side of the case (I dont think this was...
Summary: As for the drive issue I ended up putting the drive below the normal mounting cage and mounting it to the bottom of the case. There is a ton of dead space there so I used it for a full size drive. Like many I went with an AMD 5350. Its definitely a tight fit but it works and doesnt overheat.
Pros: Super small footprint. Came with PSU. Super cheap. Looks more expensive than it was.
Cons: Front LEDs are barely visible but for some of you this is not a con. The 3.5" HDD cage is in a poor spot. The drive fit but my sata cables were pushing against my RAM. I would recommend getting a 2.5" drive or using low profile RAM (this is all assuming of course that the board you intend to use ...

Summary: The case could of came with mounting brackets for fans on the opposite side from the HD sideways mount
Pros: Great Case Small and compact perfect for small spaces. At only a little over 5" tall it fit nicely under my monitor. Has space for the basics that you'd need. I Recommend using an A serious motherboard and cpu combo because you don't have to put a video card in the case and it will cut down on th...
Summary: I bought this for a DIY NAS enclosure and it looks good. The external appearance is nothing special, but unobtrusive. The power supply is small, adequate, and above all, quiet (even with its fan).
Pros: ITX Form Factor Includes a standard, modern power supply Space for 2 3.5" HDs + a 5.25 optical drive
Cons: One HD bay is horizontal under the optical bay; the other is vertical in the rear near the power supply Seems to be a little bigger than it absolutely needs to be: there appears to be space for another HD in the front, but no mounting hardware
Summary: As mentioned, this case is a bit larger than I expected. It has room enough for a 5.25" drive (CD/DVD/etc.) as well as a 3.5" floppy/MM reader, etc. The case is light and the P/S is quiet. A little caveat emptor here: the case came with a 236W P/S, NOT a 250W as advertised.
Pros: Quite P/S, spacious interior, all cable harnesses included (front panel audio, USB, etc.) even comes with an old-fashioned "speaker"!
Cons: Only 234W P/S, not 250W as advertised. Bigger than I expected for mini-ITX
Summary: Newegg! if you offer a combo please build it out and see how it goes together, if it will go together! I cannot stress enough if you buy this case, you must think about the thermals, don't put anything hot in it, think of where that psu comes down, think of where you can wedge fans in and how you...
Pros: It's small, compact, and fits on the tv stand well.
Cons: Got this with a combo that I don't think anyone at newegg attempted to build! The combo included gskill ripjaws X series ram, a MSI AM1I motherboard, a WD 1TB blue, a athlon 5350, and this case. The LED's are understated and easy to miss, perhaps a little too easy to miss. The ram's high heatsink...
Summary: This is a great looking case and seems to run pretty cool considering its size, The only thing i dont like is that the way the HDD Tray was designed it sits right next to the CPU Cooler be warned if you have a rather large CPU Cooler this is not the case for you.
Pros: Fair price Attractive yet simple look Comes with PSU Front panel USB and HD Audio
Cons: Space issue between the HDD and the CPU Cooler
