    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

    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(!)

    4 out of 5 eggs Very Good HTPC Case

    Pros: Very roomy, heavy
    Looks really nice, no one notice there is a computer

    easy to work with and can fit big cards with ease

    Cons: I do not like the bluray tray, took me a while to adjust my driver with the door

    No front panel options, very limited. Which I was already aware of

    3 out of 5 eggs Not impressed

    Pros: Has a good amount of space. Able to fit a full size ATX motherboard, Nvidia 770 graphics card, an SSD plus a 2TB 3.5 Hard drive with no problems. The only space issue I ran into was the after-market Coolmaster CPU cooler was too tall (my fault for not checking ahead of time).

    Cons: Side case fans have to be slid into place, I had one fan that was too wide to slide into the mounting bracket for the fan. Also if your using a full size ATX motherboard you will have to remove it to replace or upgrade the side case fan on the left side. The power supply gets in the way for the case fan on the right side if you need to switch that one out.

    After a few months the latch for the front panel that flips down broke. Now the panel doesn't close all the way. Also front facing seems to be stuck on with adhesive. Not a huge deal, I had to take it off and re-apply adhesive to get it to stay in place.

    Bottom Line: Overall the case is decent. If I had to do it over again I would probably go with something different. The latch for the front panel breaking after a very limited amount of use is very irritating. It does have a good amount of space to it, so I'll give it credit for that.

    5 out of 5 eggs as versatile as it gets

    Pros: this case has work as intended for me and got wifey off my back for having a comp case behind speaker.
    put together from left over part at the beginning and now added a SSD, been using more and more as time past .
    I like the pull out cage, you can pivit it on the case to work on it, everything fit and lined up

    Cons: NONE, I wish it was a liitle bit smaller but I knew that before buying.
    the description says its 16.4 but its more like 16 3/4in. long
    there's not that many htpc cases to choose from that will take a full ATX MB.

    Bottom Line: the case has serve me will, not going to find a smaller case with a full power supply in ATX format at this price,
    the good thing about it is that it looks good and its looks like a Av component .

    4 out of 5 eggs Decent

    Pros: 1. Nice looking
    2. Good amount of storage for a HTPC
    3. Plenty of room to hide wires and tidy up the case
    4. Fits an ATX board
    5. Ideal for a power full steam box with big picture mode
    6. plenty of space for a decent PSU - Used a Corsair RM650 in it without a hitch.
    7. Hard drive gaskets

    Cons: 1. The HDD/Optical Drive rack was a little racked, and I have to give it some gentle persuasion to install my Blu ray drive.
    2. You have play with the spacing for the Blu Ray drive. It is just a little fiddly. I removed the rack. Fixed the rack to accept the drive. Placed the drive in the rack loosely, put the rack back in the case. Push the drive forward, marked the drive. Removed the rack and then installed it.
    3. The case will not take GPU much longer than 9"
    4. Screw are not labeled other than the hard drive screws.
    5. The hard drive gaskets are to soft, and when you bottom our the screw, the gasket is highly deformed.
    6. The unit comes with three case fan, but can accept a 120MM case fan. I installed a quiet one. The edge for the fan is very sharp. Instead of using 4 screws, it has two dimples and 2 screws that can secure it. The case will most likely draw blood.
    7. Manual has very small print - If I was 20 not a problem. I wear bifocals and it is not my first set.
    8. Power switch feels flimsy. I will use a S3 state most of the time, so that I can do this with my remote.

    Bottom Line: If this is your first build, get a little help from a buddy who has done it before. There is an order that things have to go in. What is does well, is being a HTPC case that is not horrible expensive with lots of options. I cannot fault the case for this. The price is decent and it does work. If this were a more expensive case, then I would be more upset at it. At this price point it is good.

    5 out of 5 eggs Beautiful!

    Pros: VERY well constructed, sturdy, and absolutely beautiful. It matches the look of my A/V components perfectly.

    Hard drive cage pivots up and out for easy access. 120mm fan on side with space for second one on the other side (which I did install), blows directly across the drive cage, with space for up to 6 drives.

    Plenty of space and excellent air flow. CPU temp running 39-42C with the unit inside a media cabinet that only has a couple inches of space around it.

    Cons: Very deep. If you're placing this in a media cabinet, you should probably pick up right angle power connector and HDM adapter if you're using HDMI for A/V output, as that buys you an extra inch or two to slide it back into the cabinet. Also very heavy. Nearly 17 pounds empty, and 25 to 30 pounds once components are added.

    Bottom Line: Stock case has an LED in the right side window which reads "HOME THEATER PC", which looks pretty good. But, pick up the optional LCD screen to go in there, its definitely a good upgrade as it can be programmed to display a lot of critical information.

    This thing is unlike any computer case I've ever seen. I love the look and functionality of it!

    4 out of 5 eggs Looks nice, OK quality

    Pros: It's sleek, the size of an A/V receiver, it holds a bunch of drives, and you can take in cold air for your psu through the perf side. Most of the edges are rolled so you don't get cut. Great looking htpc case. Everything comes apart relatively easily so you can build with lots of room.

    Cons: Not all the edges are rolled (rear panel). Rear panel is flimsy, and the top cover was a very snug, poorly machined fit. One of the pci bracket screws was misaligned with the cover and bent the cover back in that place - obviously done at the factory. Front aluminum push button panel feels like an unfinished product - compared to the Lian Li case I'm transferring from (PC-B25), it's junk.

    Overall, just not a lot of attention to detail.

    Bottom Line: To be honest, I didn't expect a whole lot from this case other than that it looks good from the front and fits in my tv/entertainment stand. Most of the cons are just me being used to having a Lian Li case (i.e.= near perfect manufacturing). But this is really the only case in it's priceline that looks this great from the front, and that's worth it to me.

    Also, I didn't get the newer version with the blu-ray logo. No big deal, but a little deceptive in the advertising when you publish photos of one thing but ship another product. Evidently there are two versions of this chassis and Newegg shipped me an old one - again, just a let down of expectations.

    5 out of 5 eggs Beautiful Case

    Pros: It's just an all around strong case. I'm building a display wall PC for my company and we wanted something low profile that could still fit an ATX motherboard. The machine is a beast with 32GB of ram, 2 MATOX M9188 GPU's controlling 16 80' monitors and it still runs cool with stock fans. It's a great looking strong media center case.

    Cons: I guess it would be nice if the HD plates could be removed but it wasn't anything I couldn't work around.

    Bottom Line: I would suggest using a modular power supply because I can see things getting pretty tight otherwise
