    Top Critical Review

    Honest Review. I'm not very impressed but it isn't terrible.

    1. Despite visually looking great, most the case is very cheap quality, especially on the outside. 2. The hinge for the front bottom-panel drop down is extremely flimsy, will break easily, and feels VERY cheap. Also note: hinge -- No plural. ... Read more

    HTPC 6000
     

    The HTPC 6000 series was designed for one purpose: allowing users to build their dream HTPC system in a truly CE-looking chassis with all standard components. At first glance, the daring appearance of its exterior design looks and matches your other AV devices. On the other hand, the interior design of the HTPC 6000 is able to accommodate all standard HTPC components; and more importantly, it supports up to six hard drives to meet extended data storage needs. The HTPC 6000 series is one of the best-selling HTPC chassis in North America.

    Combining silence, style, easy media access, and an affordable price, the HTPC 6000 series is a state-of-the-art media center. If that wasn't enough, the HTPC 6000 includes all the options for a 20 x 2 LCD Media Center Display. Combine that with our new HTPCKB-100 wireless Keyboard and IR Universal TV Remote set, and the complete build will no doubt provide the ultimate digital home solution.

    Features:
    • Supports ATX power supply
    • Supports ATX; Micro-ATX; DTX and Mini-ITX motherboard
    • Six 3.5in. internal bays for media data
    • Easy upfront access digital connection interfaces (behind door)
    • HD Audio; SDHC 2.0 Card Reader; one USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0
    • Supports full height and length PCI cards up to 10in.
    • Stylish aluminum panel
    • Compact size and feel
    • Optional upgrade on 20 x 2 programmable MCE LCD module
    • Innovative architecture makes your installation easy
    • Quiet as ever

    • Six hard drive bays to meet your media center PC data storage needs
    • Easy access front ports for instant sharing and burning of your digital media
    • Easy installation
     
    Reasons for the New Design of The HTPC 6000
    • Aluminum panel with a clean look and behind-door connection ports
    • More hard drive spaces to meet increased data storage needs
    • Supports full height / length PCI devices and video graphic card, no wiser card needed, no blocking with optical drives or hard drives
    • Excellent air flow and quiet fans keep the noise and heat low
    • Presently maintains the compact size of previous chassis. Especially the depth (no need to dig a hole in the back of your rack!). 17in. wide is the standard AV box size, but it is an amazing thing to support all standard PC components in a 6.3in. (H) x 15.4in. (D) chassis
    • Easy Installation. Move the PSU back to the normal position. Intelligently designed architecture simplifies your installation - it's easy as 1-2-3.
     
    Fully-Functional Front Media Input Module
    We want to serve all your new digital media needs upfront (without having our end users turn the entire case around to find connection ports on the back). All our new models will offer you:
    • High Definition Audio Ports: Mic and Earphone (also AC 97 compliance)
    • All-in-One USB 2.0 Card Reader: Supports all high capacity and speed memory card (SDHC 2.0 compliance)
    • USB 2.0 Ports: X 2
     
    Offering an Affordable, Stylish AV Case
    Again, we achieve the best balance in size, functions, cost and simple design. It looks like an AV device, definitely not a PC - not even close.

    4 out of 5 eggs Beautiful case if not a little tight

    Pros: Beautifully designed case with nice exterior features.

    Included Front USB 3.0/2.0 and Card reader is extremely useful.

    Lots of drive bays and options for routing the wires.

    Cons: Quality was a little lacking on interior drive mounts.
    SSD Mount gets in the way of the primary PCI-X slot on my board which required me to modify the mounting frame.
    HD/DVD Mounting frame was bent out of the box with some of the welds having failed. Didn't bring my build to a halt but I had to consider it when modifying the frame.
    Modern Graphics Cards will have a problem with this case.
    I had to cut out half the drive bays and cut a notch into the Drive Frame to make room for my GTX980 power connectors. This resulted in my being unable to utilize the SSD Mounts.

    The optional LCD doesn't have any support and so doesn't function in modern OS's. If you want to have a programmable LCD front display then you will need to consider modifying in another brand other than the recommended or going with a different case.

    Bottom Line: Overall a great case with good airflow and wire management. It is extremely unobtrusive sitting under my TV Stand.

    5 out of 5 eggs Good Looking HTPC case.

    Pros: Looks good next to my receiver.
    Fits a mini-atx with plenty of room to spare.
    LCD screen opening accepts industry standard 2x20 lcd screen so you are not stuck with only getting the LCD they sell. I was able to build my own lcd solution using an lcd backpack to connect to a usb header on the motherboard and using lcd smartie.

    Cons: Fans are not completely silent and can be heard when room is quiet.
    Slightly larger than expected but looks good
    included screws for hard drives do not fit SSD drive. Not that you need to secure an ssd the same as a HD but it is not as secure as I would like it.

    Bottom Line: When I first read the reviews I was a little concerned when I purchased this case but i figured for the price I could accept the previous reviews listed downfalls as adjust my expectations. When I received the case I was pleasantly surprised how easily things went together. I expected to have to do a lot of fudging to get things working but found that not to be the case. The power supply and blu-ray (LG) fit right in without any problems with the door opening. Perhaps they reworked some of the design on newer boxes based on previous comments.

    1 out of 5 eggs Simply put, the worst case I have ever owned

    Pros: Obeys laws of thermodynaics.

    Has not become sentient and attempted to kill John Connor.

    Subject to the laws of gravity

    Cons: Where to start?

    - It's noisy;
    - The cabling arrangement is awkward;
    - The drive mounting arrangement is horrible;
    - The PSU mounting holes aren't aligned;
    - The optical drive slot isn't aligned properly;
    - The mounting bay is falling apart; and
    - It doesn't close properly.

    Bottom Line: I've owned this case for seven months now, and it's been absolutely atrocious. I got this case for my new HTPC, and it's been a nightmare since day one.

    The power supply holes aren't in the correct place, meaning the PSU doesn't mount properly (I can get at most three of the four screws in).

    There's something in the assembly and construction of the 120mm fan slots and vents which cause fans to make absurd amounts of noise. I've tried three different case fans, and each one is silent outside the case, but makes a horrible WHIRRRRing noise in the case.

    To make things worse, the case has lots of vent slots in the top and the sides, meaning any noise from the CPU fan or rear case fans emit from the case more easily.

    The slots to mount the hard drives have the cabling end of the drives face each other (i.e., the front of the drives face the sides of the case, and the backs of the drives face each other). This means that if you get this case, a PSU with detachable cabling is a NECESSITY, not simply preferable.

    The detachable mount for the optical drive and internal hard drive bays is poorly constructed, and doesn't properly mount back in place once there's a drive in the bay. I've tried three different optical drives -- all of which work fine in my old SilverStone case -- and none open properly with this case.

    Furthermore the top part of the mounting has become detached from the rest of the mounting, meaning that in order to close the case I need to put the top in place, jam a screwdriver down in one of the top air vents and push down, while I simultaneously slide the case top forward into place.

    In the past I've purchased Antec and SilverStone cases for my desktop machines and HTPCs. I was distracted by how nice this case looked, the price, and the generally positive reviews. I was mistaken.

    Don't buy this case. I've been building my systems from parts for about 20 years now, and I can honestly say that this is the worst case I've ever owned. Spend a few extra bucks for a nicer case with better design and save yourself the hassle of a poorly designed and constructed case.

    3 out of 5 eggs A fair priced solution to HTPC

    Pros: Not a bad case for a HTPC build, Fits well in my entertainment centre , Full size ATX micro ATX format solid build, pleasing to the eye

    Cons: Before you start your build ... make sure you have a good supply of band aids. Inside panels extremely sharp. Removable dvd hdd sub frame twisted. You can not use a fan / heat sink assay any larger than 92mm or it will foul on the ATX power supply. I have a 1/2" gap between the heat sink and the bottom fan of the PS. I found the rosewill 92 mm unit a good fit on a micro ATX socket 775

    Bottom Line: Comes with 2 x 80mm rear fans and 1 x 120mm side fan but theres an option / mounting point to fit another 120 mm fan at your expense should you wish ( i thought that was a bit cheap ) charge another couple of bucks and stick another fan in the box, But for what you pay its worth it

    5 out of 5 eggs Over 1 Year, Still Great!

    Pros: Durable Construction

    Cons: HDD Light port blocked by paint

    Bottom Line: This system has worked well, the power button can be easily activated with my foot so it's easy to turn on if you are by the TV. The case has great airflow when I am using it as a HTPC or gaming on it.

    After 1 year, I am very pleased with this product.

    5 out of 5 eggs Beautiful

    Pros: It looks beautiful, it fits any and all components perfectly, it's got a ton of ventilation options, and if you're looking to fit PC components into a home theater environment, you can't do much better.

    Cons: Not many, really. The front panel only has the one USB connection that's NOT USB3. Basically, it has a USB3 and a USB2 connection on front, and if you don't have one of those 20-pin USB3 headers on the board you use, you're out of luck without an adapter.

    Bottom Line: The less-than-popular USB3 connector seems...out of place. But beyond that, it's amazing.

    Pros: great HTPC case, I bought this case in the summer of 2012 it's still in tact.

    Cons: none

    2 out of 5 eggs Decent

    Pros: As advertised, great case decent amount of room inside to hold all your gear, pay attention to CPU cooler size and upgrade the rear 80mm case fans so you don't have to deal with the molex connectors.

    Cons: cable management is a pain when using all the hard drive bays. and the aluminum door is a bit jankie.

    Bottom Line: this case appears to have been used prior to me receiving it, some of the screens on the drive bay are stripped and the back of the cover was bent and scratched. that is why it only get 2 eggs.

    4 out of 5 eggs Very roomy.

    Pros: The pros for me are that this thing has tons of room for more drives. It looks almost exactly like my Sony surround sound receiver, so it fits right into our entertainment center.

    Cons: There aren't really any cons for me except that my case arrived with a decent sized scratch along the power knob. It's not really noticeable if you squint your eyes, so it's not a huge deal, but I was not expecting that. That's why I gave it 4 eggs intead of the five I think this could easily get.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great HTPC case

    Pros: ATX motherboard and power supply (main reason for purchase). Clean appearance looks like AV equipment, not computer. Rock solid with room to grow. Space for six HDD's. 1 USB 3 port. Well ventilated, 3 fans are quiet and move a lot of air. NO SHARP EDGES. More screws than could ever be used.

    Cons: Very deep at 16.5”, add 2-3” for cables at the back. Power “light” is a display that says “Welcome to AV Center”. HDD led is invisible. Mounting Blu-Ray drive not easy. Break away slot covers cannot be reinstalled.

    Bottom Line: I waited a year to buy a HTPC case, and then waited five months to review this case. I needed a case that would take an ATX MB & PS from a retired gaming computer. This case fit my primary needs so well that the cons don't really matter. This is why I gave it 5 stars.

    The case is large, and the depth requirements of 18 or 19 inches meant hacking a hole in the back of my AV stand. The 6 HDD slots allowed me to combine a backup server and tv frontend/backend into one device. I am running three HDD's and have room for expansion. If you can use a uATX MB, you might want to consider one of the many smaller and attractive cases available.

    The power light looks okay but made me a little uncomfortable so I left it disconnected. My HTPC is not an “AV Center”. The wording is a little weird and seems like poorly translated Chinese. This is meant to be replaced with display option from nMEDIAPC that is expensive for what you get and probably should have been included with the case in the first place.

    The HDD led is red and located on the front below the power button. nMEDIAPC's website says something about the led is painted black to reduce annoying blinking. I am not sure this can be reversed. No light from the led can be seen on the front of the case.

    Getting the Blu-Ray drive set up so the eject button worked and the tray pushed the door open can be tricky. I had to remove the tray cover from the drive, slide drive forward and back while pressing eject button. Yes the cover was off with the power on(!)
