Low price, looks good, comes with PSU.
Airflow, a bit flimsy.
Bought for my HTPC build. It's a little deeper than I was expecting for my purposes as I failed to consider the rear connections at the back that butt up against the back of my wall unit and force me to place the case a couple inches further forward than I had expected. No biggie - can always drill a bigger hole in the back of my cabinet to accommodate. Does feel cheap when handling, but looks good and PS works fine (using AMD Athlon 5350 Quad Core 25W CPU, so not very demanding). The PSU fan inside the case points down toward where CPU is placed on motherboard. Would have been better if there was a vent in top of unit for this. Plus maybe more vents overall. Not much clearance between PSU and CPU fan (like 1/2 inch?). If you put even a tiny, low profile usb dongle in one the front USB's, you cant close the cover....Overall though, I'm please.

- great for HTPC
- nice finish, well built
- no sharp corners
- easy to install components
- no reset button
- a little longer in depth than I expected
I needed to upgrade to a smaller HTPC and this looked like a pretty neat case to go with. Even though I knew the measurements it's a little longer in depth than I expected but no big deal. I'm happy with how well built it is and has good ventilation. Easy to install an m-itx board after taking out the included power supply.

Experience: 80 Days


Small and looks good
a little tight
Great for a small desktop or HTPC. If you are looking to put in minimal components and need a small footprint, this is a great and flexible way to go.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Nice case. Front panel is nice too. HDD slot on the bottom is appreciated.
A bit tiny for the power supply fan under the power supply. It sits on the fan (Intel I3 -3220)
Nice black case with power supply (250w). Nice front cover. A bit cheap on finish. Recommanded.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Small form factor, looks great beside TV. Low noise PSU.
A8-3870K heatsink doesn't fit.
Great little case but the A8 retail heatsink is too tall. Had to temporally cut the legs off the fan and it still presses up against the power supply until I buy a lower heatsink. If your willing to work to build a great small form factor gamer with this case, it's one of the sharpest looking ITX cases.

Experience: 10 Months


Small form factor with space for full size DVD/CD Drive!
Cramped space, as per SFF
This is a great little case for the price, I didnt end up using the side HDD mount instead I put it under the DVD drive. (I think, havent opened the case up in awhile, I just remember trying to slide the drive in there and cables being in the way)

P.S. Why cant I put my order number in to verify my purchase on these reviews ? (As stated purchased over 10 months ago)

Makes an inexpensive SFF HTPC Build.
Power supply surprising quiet and 250 watts is enough for HTPC.
Decent Thermals/noise with simple 120mm fan mod.

Harder to assemble due to small size.
May have to choose components carefully depending on build.
You are limited to a single slot graphics card.
This is my fourth PC Build and 1st Itx Build.
Wanted to make a SFF HTPC build that could do some minor gaming.
I wanted to have an i3-2100 cpu with stock cooling paired with the fastest passively cooled gpu that would fit in this case. I was interested primarily in a quiet and low powered build. I was not interested in an internal Optical Drive (too noisy) or SDD.

Important things I found out about this build:
Passively cooled gpu's tend to have large heatsinks on one or both sides of the video card. Due to the small size of the case, your choice of graphic card may not fit the case and may also interfere with the Cpu heatsink. The location of the Cpu on the motherboard is crucial especially if the passive heatsink is on the backside of the video card.
Pick ram without tall heat spreaders; they can prevent you putting in a 3.5" hard drive in the 3.5" lower bay. I even found it too tight to put my WD GREEN 3.5" hard drive in the 3.5" bay because the SATA wires were too close to my cpu fan. I simply put the hard drive in the 5.25" upper bay. Your results may vary based on your motherboards layout.
There is room to place a 120mm fan to blow air out keeping the temperatures and noise nice and low.

I wanted a passively cooled GPUs that didn't use a lot of watts, generate a lot of heat, and could get all the power from the PCI-16 slot. Eventually settled on the HIS 6570 1gb Silent Passively cooled Gpu. It has a nice low heatsink the the front side but a relatively large heatsink on the backside. Because of this 90% of motherboards out there will not likely work. I settled on a FOXCONN H61 itx motherboard which had the CPU placed further away to allow me to put the Gpu in. Overall a great little case!

Good price
Decent case for a HTPC
Poor airflow design
Bought this mini ITX case for my HTPC:
Gigabyte GA-E350N
Kingston SSDNow V100 Series 64GB
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 7200.12 1TB
Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX 8GB
Apex MI-008 MINI-ITX Case
MSI Btoes 2.1 Bluetooth Micro Dongle
LG BH12LS38 12X Blu Ray Rewriter
ASUS PCE-N15 300Mbps 802.11B/G/N Wireless PCI-E

Not a bad case overall, only downside is the poor airflow design. There's a lot of space under the 2.5 and 3.5 bay that could be better utilized. May need to install a 120mm on the side if you have lots of wire and cables obstructing the already poor airflow.

Experience: 2 Months


compact, cute
cheap build quality, psu cables too long for nothing, stupid support panel placement.
over all this case is not awful, it works fine with no problem, it just seems like they cut a lot of corners.

Experience: 3 Days


Ample space for a smaller system build
Power supply hovers closely over board
Im in the process of building my system, so I'm not sure if this is because I don't have my processor yet, but when i plug in the system to see if im getting power, the fan on the power supply doesn't spin.
