Summary: This is a very nice and solid case. My only irk is when you add the internal storage, it was a pain in the rear. You have to mount an SSD first then the 3.5' hard drive over it onto this support beam over the power supply on the right hand side.
Summary: I own the previous version of this case but was very disappointed to see that Silverstone has replaced the great looking, high quality, brushed aluminum front panel with a cheap plastic version. Additionally there is no front cover plate for the DVD drive.
Summary: Purchased this for my long awaited "HTPC-Gamer" build, something I have been wanting to do since about 2006. Nothing bad to say about it at all, albeit I am barely a week into use. The end result here is a fairly quiet high-end gaming computer that is used for movies/live-tv/gaming.
Summary: Great case. Good design for ventilation and cooling. My one gripe is the optical bay sits right on top of the proc. So if you put a massive cooler in your computer then forget about shoving a BD drive in there.
... HTPC case for a long time and couldn't be happier that I went with this case

Summary: I've been wanting to put my HTPC into an actual HTPC case for a long time and couldn't be happier that I went with this case. Its big enough to fit everything, but not too big. It has a great build quality and I like the fake aluminum brushed front.
Great build quality, a couple of irritating oversights...

Summary: Giving this four stars because of the stupid location for mounting ssd's and the silliness that is the sub 1/8" it would take to make fitting graphics cards easier. The case is well built, cools well and is pretty quiet even with fans at full speed.

Summary: I purchased 2 ml03b cases previously and they came with 19 pin usb 3.0 to usb 2.0 9 pin connectors, this one didnt have it. fans are too noisy for htpc Aluminium front is flimsy. not worth the price. dvd drive blocks the cpu fan ventilation on a88gm deluxe mother board.
Summary: All in all, I love this case. If you are looking to do a mATX HTPC build, I sincerely recommend this case. Internals: 1x ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM R2.0 1x Intel Core i3 3rd Gen (Can't remember specifics) 2x ADATA USA XPG V1.0 OC Series 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ RAM (8GB Ram Total) 1x Thermaltake 500W ATX PSU 1x...
Summary: Overall I really like this product. The front panel power/reset/power LED/HDD Led block is cheap. Poor construction found the switches non-functional and, finally, three of the four wires just fell off.
