A good size (smaller than the tower I moved all the components from)
None that I've encountered
I moved all the components over from a tower PC (mainstream off-the-shelf from big box store).

Move over from the other Machine:
AMD Phenom 9600 Quad-Core Processor 2.3 GHZ
750 GIG HD
NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800GT 512MB

Kingston Value SSD 65GB
3 Antec Tri-Cool fans
Hauppauge HVR-2250

Everything fits nice and the temperature probe mounted in the center of the case reads 18-20C at normal operation.

It now sits on a shelf and acts as my Media Center.

I would buy again.

Saves space (might printer can stack on top of it)
Looks better in real life than it does in the pictures.
The front grill gets clogged with dust easily.
The dusty look is kinda ugly.
The case isn't quite as easy to work in as a tower case.
I am very happy that I bought this case. I have stacked my printer on it to save space and the space savings is very valueable to me.

My only complaint is that the front grill clogs with dust much more easily than my old case and the gray dust looks ugly. Maybe this wouldn't be a problem if I vacuumed my office more than twice a year.

Interesting looking, lots of room, great cooling for a cube. Very well thought out, even has a kickstand. NCIX great $75 price. Way better cooling than the Antec NSK1380.
Use the right size power supply, no more than 140mm unless you want to play around. One stand off short in parts bag.
Antec Basiq 430watt is a perfect fit, 140mm. However I had a Earthwatt 650 on hand that is whisper quiet. There is a lot of talk about the PSU getting in the way of the hard drive cage or long optical drives. Well you could easily buy a $3 5.25 to 3.5 adapter if you only plan on running one optical drive to solve the hard drive clearance issue. I used the larger Antec earthwatt 650 and the stock hard drive cage by using right angle sata connectors and tucked the extra cables under my DVD drive. I also cut out the metal with my angle grinder under the PSU and ran my PSU upside down so I have a 120mm exhaust fan over my Northbridge and PVR 150. I have 3 Antec tri cool fans on order but so far its pretty quiet. AMD 125 watt processor.

Nice design, small, good fit and finish.
vertical hdd mount makes ide drives a little tight on the data ribbon
Built a HTPC using this case, installled 2 HDD and a optical , including the GPU space was a little tight.
Sensor panel is little more than eye candy but it looks nice for the kiddies. This is not a bad case for the money, once priced match'd it was a bargain. Overall I am happy with the case, its small and looks nice a perfect addition to the entertainment unit.

Easy to work with, visually pleasing, with slight modification you can put in a larger P/S, sturdy, good size
Could be a little longer to allow bigger, more powerful P/S, LCD panel colour choice would be nice (I would like blue too)
I built a PC using this case recently using the following components:
DFI P45-T2RS mATX Crossfire board
Intel e8400 Core 2 Duo
4 GB Corsair DDR2 PC6400
Corsair 750W P/S
Sapphire 2GB 4870 Video
Western Digital 1 TB SATA Drive

I had to do a little metal cutting in order to fit the HD and the P/S, but it has worked out fine with the deeper P/S, and it has been working fine for the few weeks I have used it. A pretty easy case to work with.

Easy to work with, nice looks. Accommodates my PSU perfectly with HDD caddy in the way (Antec TP Trio 430w). Nice case for that HTPC setup.
Room enough to work in, decent space for cable routing. I bought this along with the M3A78-EM board for my HTPC. I really like the flip open case feature. Very happy with the case. Being able to use full height video cards is definitely a plus. The only thing i would have preferred, would have been the LCD readout in a blue back lit instead of red. Other than was money well spent!

Stylish design, very easy to put together, high gloss finish, very stealth looking.
Larger than I thought it was, the PSU holes and Mobo holes are slightly off. Need to buy additional 80mm fans for rear of case.
First time builder. Had no troubles at all, very easy to build due to dual deck. Tidy wiring and lots of space to work. Need to buy optional fans though becuase the 1 stock 120mm fan is insufficient. I used SATA for hard drive, if you don't, the fit is very tight against the PSU, I'd say near impossible.

Can be modified to accept tall CPU heatsinks with large fans
LCD is garish and pretty much useless. Addionally, the optical drive covers are not designed to be removable, so standard 5 14 drive inserts won't fit. So no retractable LCD screens or drawers. :-(
I really like these cases (I've built several) because with a set of tinsips and 10 minutes, the sheet metal divider between the top and bottom halves can be removed. This allows for better airflow through power supplies that have a 120MM fan, and most impressively allows the installation of tall CPU heatsinks like the Zalman 90. (Don't think the 120 would fit as it would be too wide and hit the power supply.
In any case (no pun intended), it allows decent overclocking with the improved airflow and larger CPU HS.
This is the only mATX cube case that I've been able to put a large CPU HS into.

Cheers, PiffleMaster

LCD looks cool
Not as quiet as I expected
The front panel LCD looks cool. Easy to work inside. Just be careful if you have a bigger PSU, it needs to to installed before everything else because there is no extra room between the PSU and hard disk or DVD drive. I installed a Corsair VX550W PSU and a Scythe Shuriken 3 heatpipe low profile CPU heatsink in this case and expected it to be quiet, but it's not. Maybe this case is not designed to be quiet.

Well built, compact, but retains good airflow.
Cable management is troublesome.
The split design of the case makes it quite easy to work inside of. The power supply is is a bit of a tight fit and the size of the case will leave standard length cables all over the place. Fortunately there is space for a few 80 mm fans, plus the case is very good-looking.
