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: 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
Summary: Reading the other reviews of this case, it seems the power supply enjoys a good failure, which makes me worry about using it. I did buy a back-up SFX power supply, but there are no reputable companies making SFX power supplies, so all you have for selection is a sea of garbage, and at that point, it...
Pros: Very compact case. Comes with the bare essentials, includes a power supply, and is pretty cheap for all of that. You can put a very basic computer in it, which is what you're probably going to do anyway if you're buying this.
Cons: Has the power supply above the motherboard. I wish this were flipped vertically, and the motherboard was above the power supply. Because of this, if you're going to use an Intel CPU, the stock fan won't fit, so this case will come with the hidden cost of buying a slim fan. A lot of cases use this...
Summary: All in all this case was one of the more difficult builds I've ever done, it was challenging but in a fun way. Cable management isnt that bad but then again I have a lot of experience with it. This case is not for first time builds.
Pros: Adorably small Comes with PSU Pretty sturdy for the price
Cons: HD placement was not well thought out. If you use a full size 3.5" hd youll have to mount it underneath the designated HD bay otherwise youll be likely covering a ram channel or two. It would be wise to go with a board that has so-dimm. The stock AMD a4 kabini heatsink/fan combo just barely clear...
Summary: Used this for a general purpose workstation. The first case arrived with a damaged optical drive door. Had to RMA for a replacement. Second case was fine but the door still feels fragile. I wonder how it will hold up after multiple openings.
Pros: Included power supply is good for general purpose computing. Pretty quiet case.
Cons: Front door covers feel flimsy and easy to come off track.
Summary: You would expect a small case to have tight spaces, so it's not really a con. The case did its job and is working quite well. I used it in a build for my parents and they like the size of it. I finally got them away from using laptops as desktop computers.
Pros: Small, included power supply, minimal design.
Cons: Tight space, front covers are a little flimsy.
Summary: Used this for my first Mini ITX build for a small simple budget HTPC. Some previous reviews complained of broken bay cover doors. Mine are not. They seem to function correctly. Yes, it does have a reset button, just below power button. Has LEDs on front, but not real bright.
Pros: Size Price Built in PS Sleek Looks
Cons: No USB 3 on front panel. PS Location. Like other reviewers, I think this could have been mounted differently.
Summary: This is my first mini-ITX build (built for a client). Nice solid build and I'm very pleased with the result. The only drawbacks I see are what I mentioned above.
Pros: Everything you'd want from a mini-ITX chassis... good price too!
Cons: - PSU ventilation is down... literally on top of the stock CPU heatsink. For this chassis, the ventilation would have been better placed on any of the internal sides of the PSU or even the top, if the top of the chassis was also grated. Fortunately the LGA1050s run relatively cool that I haven't ...
