Conclusion: SilverStone has taken the Micro-ATX form factor HTPC and given it the options of the bigger cases. It is an interesting case design that allows for long video cards, normal PSUs, three 120mm cooling fans and fits into an entertainment center without overlap. SilverStone’s design is worthy of mention as a Hot Product for those reasons.
Summary: While the Grandia GD04 is not as unique of a small form factor
enclosure like the Sugo series, the GD04 is unique in its own right. The GD04
looks like a simplistic, small HTPC chassis from the exterior, but on the inside
it offers a surprising amount of room that can handle a micro ATX motherboard,
five expansion slots, two 3.5-inch disk drives, and one 2.5-inch disk drive.
Summary: SilverStone Grandia GD04 is a case targeted to users that want to build a media center with a case with the same size of home theater receivers. Here is a summary of what we found about this product.
Grandia GD04 is a terrific option for the user that wants to build a home theater PC (HTPC) with the same size of a home theater receiver.
Conclusion: Overall then, the GD04 manages to check most the boxes required for a HTPC case to be good. The main ingredients being nice outlooks, good design and quiet operation. Beside these features the GD04 also manages to avoid the potholes of being too large for being practical, can house long graphic cards despite the small size and has a good airflow. Needless to say, then, that I really like the GD04.
Pros: Very short/shallow, Cooling, Easy installation, Quiet fans
Summary: Quando si parla di SilverStone, diviene addirittura superfluo esaltare le caratteristiche legate al design od alla qualità dei materiali passando per l'attenzione e la cura dei particolari. Ogni prodotto della casa Taiwanese può essere considerato alla stregua di un “pezzo unico”. I difetti, ove presenti, sono sempre estremamente marginali grazie, evidentemente, ad un attentissimo lavoro in fase di progettazione.
Summary: Alliant design et sobriété, compacité (faible profondeur de 32cm comme un ampli A/V) et bonne compatibilité avec les composants (Micro-ATX, alim ATX, 3 disques durs, 1 lecteur optique classique, carte graphique jusqu'à 29cm),
