    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

    The nMediapc HTPC 6000 Series let you build an HTPC that won't look out of place when you put it with the rest of your A/V equipment. It supports all standard form factor ATX/Micro ATX/ITX components and allows six HDDs in this case to meet your media center storage needs. So, with the right choices in components this one box can eliminate a number of standard AV components. Keeping all the components cool it comes with two 80mm case fans and one 120mm HDD fan. Top and side vents are included to help with air flow.

    3 out of 5 eggs Great HTPC Case Idea, Good Implementation, So-so QC

    Pros: It is hard to find an HTPC case that works perfectly for what you want because there aren't very many "horizontal" cases in circulation and everyone's needs are different. This case suited my needs very well.
    - Full ATX
    - Case fans are provided (and are actually quiet!)
    - Optical drive bay for a blu ray drive
    - Special space for an LCD display manufactured by the same company (nMEDIAPC)

    Cons: This case is difficult to work with because everything has to sit PERFECTLY in order to work. For example, I have been having problems with the optical drive because there's no way to screw it into the bracket so it sits loose and if it doesn't sit PERFECTLY then the drive won't fit through the bay and retract. When it retracts it jostles the drive, knocking it out of place and preventing me from opening it again. I'm still trying to figure out a permanent solution to this. Another example is graphics card placement. The size of the case greatly restricts the size of the graphics card you can use (though there is enough room for 2, or 3 if that's your thing, as long as they're not too long) and so at this point in time I couldn't even dream of getting an NVidia 970 or 980 since there are none in production right now that fit inside the case.

    A major con is the LCD panel. It will only work (without personally modifying the case) with nMEDIAPC's proprietary LCD screen, the model PRO-LCD. The thing is, they don't produce PRO-LCDs anymore. I emailed the company about this and they responded by telling me a workaround - buy a PRO-LCD-S or PRO-LCD-B. They are just PRO-LCDs mounted with screws onto brackets. I purchased a PRO-LCD-S and sure enough I was able to unmount the LCD panel from the bracket and then screw it into the case. This success aside, it would have been nice if they offered an option to include the screen with the case at added cost.

    Bottom Line: It's hard to say whether I recommend this case to others. It works for me (mostly - still working out the optical drive issue), but it won't necessarily work for you. I do think that it is one of the best, most feature-inclusive cases available in the "horizontal" variety, meaning you don't have to give up a lot of things you'd normally get in a "vertical" case. Do your research before deciding on the case you want.

    5 out of 5 eggs True HTPC Case

    Pros: Attractive design
    Up to 6 HDD's
    Hidden front panel
    Fits full ATX motherboard
    (2) 120mm fan mounts
    (2) 80mm fan mounts
    Dim/subtle HDD activity light (not distracting)

    Cons: Only one way to mount the PSU

    Bottom Line: I have never left a single review before (yeah I'm that guy), but I wanted to for this case. I wanted a HTPC case that looked like it belonged in a home theater setup, but I wanted to use a full-size ATX board and have room for at least 4 HDD's. This case not only looks sleek sitting on the shelf under my audio receiver, but it had room for everything I wanted to install in it. The solid drive bay chassis swivels up and out for easy installation of the optical and HDD's and included are rubber mounts for each drive.

    If I had to give one complaint about this case, it would be that you cannot mount the PSU, but in one direction. I would prefer it wasn't blowing hot air onto my CPU, but rather out the vents on the side. Not a deal breaker as I've encountered many cases like this. Also, the right hinge on the front door of mine was broken and required some epoxy to repair. Unfortunately, I didn't notice until well into my install and after playing with the door for a bit, so I can't guarantee that I didn't break it.

    For those complaining about the drive installation, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. I admit the English is not the best, but it clearly tells you the order to install all components and if you follow them, you'll have zero issues. Though I did notice one point in the instructions says to install the optical drive in 'Position B' and another says 'Position A'. Turns out that 'Position B' put the drive's control button smashed against the cases', preventing it from working. Switching it to 'Position A' solved that and the drive ejects and retracts smooth as butter.

    1 out of 5 eggs Poor Build Quality

    Pros: -Attractive styling.
    -Good dimensions for a HTPC.

    Cons: -Front panel didn't open due to misaligned parts.
    -Flimsy, light chassis.
    -Cheaper looking in person compared to photos
    -No Blu Ray logo as depicted in photos.
    -Power button is plastic and feels cheap.

    Bottom Line: This case looks cool in the pictures, but is very cheaply made. The back expansion card panel was bent. I was easily able to bend it back due to how thin the metal is. The front panel that is supposed to open did not. The panel did not fit the case properly and it seams like they just jammed it into place. I didn't even attempt to put any parts in this case. As soon as I took it out of the box and inspected it, I knew I was sending it back. Ordered a GD07B instead.

    4 out of 5 eggs Great looking case, incredible functionality

    Pros: Excellent looks, blends in with AV receiver.
    Lots of HDD bays.
    Easy to install components if you follow the directions

    Cons: The only one I can think of is the front header cover hinges are kind of flimsy, probably could improve those a little.
    The panel itself only offers 1 USB 3.0 connection. I understand that technology changes rapidly, but they probably could have gone ahead and put in 2 USB 3.0 connections.

    Bottom Line: I own one of these exact cases already which I use for a family members HTPC in their room, so naturally when it came time to build an HTPC for my living room I went back to NMedia. This case offers just about everything you need for such a setup. The instructions say you can install 6 3.5" HDDs in it which you can easily. However if you want to pay for it, you can get a 5.25" adapter and install a 7th 3.5 or 2.5" HDD in the optical slot if you don't need the optical drive. There is actually enough room for 2 more drives in the middle of the HDD cage but NMedia decided not to utilize that space because I guess they thought 6 drives was enough which makes sense.

    With new motherboards on the market and the ability to use M.2 SSD drives as the system drive, that leaves 6 spaces for HDDs for storage which should be enough for all but the most serious of builders. It comes with all the hardware you will need to mount the various components as well as some wire management pieces which are useful for routing.

    Its a solidly build unit that will last for many many years which is why I bought a 2nd one almost 7 years later after the 1st. I'd give it a perfect 5 egg but the little things like the front cover door mean it's not perfect but pretty darn close.

    4 out of 5 eggs Not a bad little case

    Pros: Fits nicely into my custom TV stand. Hooked it to a 55in Samsung Smart TV. It takes up about as much room as my Sony 7.1 receiver.

    Cons: None whatsoever. Good price, and does exactly what I needed it to do.

    4 out of 5 eggs Good basic media case

    Pros: This is a good case for a basic media center computer. Fits ATX motherboards with no problems. Room for multiple HD's. Can fit decent sized video cards. All the parts fit and after 4 years of use it is still working with no problems. It looks good. Nice blue light around the power button. Not overly tall or wide. Front door seems flimsy but it works good.

    Cons: Only one way to mount the PSU, no provision for mounting the PSU to draw air from outside the case. It is a media case so expect a tight fit. Proper fan orientation is essential. Set them up to push air out of the case. Limited on the size of video card you can use. 10 inches is the hard measurement from back to HD enclosure. It doesn't mean that a 10 inch video card will fit. In fact, I wouldn't recommend anything over 9.5. Given that it takes a lot to push the pixels in a large TV a good video card is a must.

    Bottom Line: Adequate room for a standard build. Like all media cases, it is highly recommended that you use a power supply with modular cables. In fact almost required. Also recommend getting two 120 mm quiet fans. This is not a case to build a monster gaming system with large video cards or cpu's that need extra cooling or huge fans. I have run two GTX 660's in SLI, but watch the cooling.
    My System:
    Gigabyte 990 FXA UD3
    AMD 4.2 Mhz Quad
    2 x 1TB 7.2 HD's.
    1 SSD
    GTX 660
    16 GB Ram
    Thermaltake modular 750 watt PSU
    55 inch Samsung

    2 out of 5 eggs Not as good as as I thought it would be....

    Pros: Good airflow, nice looking case when front door is shut

    Cons: The front hinge panel is jammed into the unit because its to big for its setting. I will need to shave it down with a dremel to make it fit.
    I had to manhandle the case to get the power supply in. It's mounting area is not big enough and I had to shave off part of the fan next to it just to install with only 3 screws.

    Bottom Line: Make sure to plug the HD cables in before you put the assembly back in the case.... It is almost impossible to get your hands in there and I only installed one drive!

    I can't speak to the other reviews stating the optical drive mounting issues. I am leaving a DVD/Blu-Ray out due to already having a PS3.

    5 out of 5 eggs Amazing case

    Pros: -Holds 6 hard drives AND an SSD, so 7 total.
    -The optical drive and all hard drives screw into a single mount device which swivels, similar to an OEM Dell chassis, makes maintenance and assembling very easy
    -Great quality of materials, front looks really sleek and clean when the flip door is closed.
    -Size mimics an A/V receiver very well, I have this on the shelf underneath the receiver and it fits in perfectly.
    -All fans are silent, and when the case is closed the case itself is very quiet

    Cons: -It wasn't cheaper

    Bottom Line: I rarely write reviews but I had to for this case, because of so many people complaining about it due to their own stupidity. I saw the reviews about having to remove hard drives to install an optical drive, or remove the tray to wire something, etc etc. I thought--surely no case would be made in such poor fashion!

    And I came to the conclusion that none of these people read the instructions. They clearly outline an order in which you are to wire and install components so that no such problems arise. I followed the instructions, installing the optical drive first (using the convenient markings for optical drive position, on the metal itself--don't know how people are messing up the placement of their drives), then the hard drives, starting with the bays next to the optical drive, and then wired them before finally placing the tray in the case. This resulted in all devices being wired, and in position properly first try. The packaging comes with zip-ties plus wire anchors that you can install anywhere you want. The cable management was easy and effortless.

    Read the dang instructions, people. There are markings for what screw holes to use for optical drive vs hard drive, and its important. The order in which you install components is important. Overall the instructions made this an easy install with all 6 hard drives, plus an SSD and optical drive. Ran into no snags, did not cut myself, the wires are organized very easily--I can honestly say that all the complaints these people are making, are due to their own stupidity. Read the instructions, use the wire mounts and zip-ties, it's a great case and built very well.

    2 out of 5 eggs Update to previous review

    Pros: mentioned in the previous review

    Cons: Adding to my previous reivew, Have issues with LG bluray drive. due to drive caddy not square to case, the drive is angled to the side and the LG drive tray catches on the front hinged door. Had to remove the drive tray cover plate to allow the drive to eject. Very poor quality on the drive cage. Unable to fix issue without modding mounting holes.

    Bottom Line: I regret buying this case, would have returned it except for having modded the drive cage for the gtx 950 video card. I Just needed a low cost htpc case and 5 drive bays, which now is only 2 3.5 inch bays due to video card fit issues.

    4 out of 5 eggs Decent case, with potential to be amazing

    Pros: - Nice looking
    - Spacious...until drive tray is installed
    - Fits ATX board
    - Plenty of vents
    - Potential to be excellent case if willing to mod

    Cons: - Drive cage / cabling is a nightmare
    - Fitment isn't the best
    - Included fans are pathetic
    - Knock-out style expansion slots (we 1995 again?)
    - No dust covers on air intakes
    - PSU mounting holes no aligned (cannot get one screw in)
    - PSU intakes air from inside case (cannot be mounted other way without modding)
    - Doesn't allow for modern longer GPU's without modding drive cage / trays (which won't allow for the mounting of 2 drives)
    - Latching front I/O panel (instead of magnetic, has fitment issues on mine as well)

    Bottom Line: As it stands in its stock form, its just an okay case. If you don't have a large GPU, and don't care about cable management, and you don't get frustrated easily, this case will be great for you. Some tips for assembly would be:

    - Dry fit optical drive first, using only rear screws (leaving slightly loose), so you can slide optical drive to needed position. Mark the position on the drive, remove cage, tighten screws.
    - Then and only then install hard drives. Connect all wiring to hard drives (power and data) before installing cage
    - Get some sticky zip-tie mounts to be able to somewhat control cabling mess

    However, in order to make this case excellent, you're going to have to be willing to do some mods.

    My mods include:
    - Removing right side 120mm fan mount to allow for mounting of AIO CPU Water Cooler
    - Removing right side drive trays to allow room for AIO CPU Water Cooler
    - Replace rear 80mm fans
    - Modify PSU mounting to allow for external air intake
    - Notch drive cage to allow for longer GPU (MSI GTX950 Gaming G2 in my case)
    - Remove left side drive trays and turn inline with optical drive (makes wiring easier and simpler)
    - Cutting larger holes in case sides for air intakes
    - Installing dust filters in air intakes
    - Painting inside black, just cuz
