Rated 5 out of 5 by Raybo A small Gem
I bought this desktop case as I needed extra space on my desk layout, It must be nearly 3 decades since I used a desktop case & they have certainly changed, this little compact case is amazing, but it has several minor faults, firstly no instructions to tell you how to disassemble the internals, it took me a while to realise that the front completely comes away from the main chassis – once I had found this out I could see where the second 3.5: bay was and mad installation of the Motherboard very easy... Secondly the vent that is supposed to channel heat away from the CPU doesn’t fit an Intel standard CPU cooler (on a mini ATX Mobo) to add extra cooling I added an 80mm fan in the side of the case. The case construction is quite remarkable quality for a case of this price and everything lines up very well, there’s not a lot more to say, other than my small 19 inch monitor sits very well on top of the case without blocking any vents & looks a lot tidier than a small tower & monitor set up too – the PC is only for office type work & so no heavy duty graphics card is used as the case requires ½ height brackets (or low profile type brackets) as will any extra pci-e cards you may want to fit – a great buy if this is what you need, even with the afore mentioned minor faults I still give this 5 stars and would recommend the case for the type of application it is designed for. Very neat indeed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ric48 High quality, but probably has a specific use
A really solid well made case. You could probably stand on it without damaging it.
It does seem to be geared up for Intel builds with stock CPU coolers.
I say that because there is a plastic shroud that is supposed to fit around the CPU cooler to channel the heat upwards and out of the case through a soft mesh vent. Very weird for a desktop case. With a setup like that, you could get restricted putting a monitor on top of the case. Which is surely what you would want to do with a desktop case! The plastic shroud for the CPU cooler is adjustable, but doesn't really fit right with a stock AMD cooler.
Saying all that, it does come with feet to use it as a tower.
In my situation, it was a fine case for me, as I used it to house a mini server in a confined space.
It is very quiet and high quality, but I feel it is very application specific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smoothop Great Media PC Case
This maybe a no thrills case but its great in size, cooling and comes complete with 300w psu. great at being a media pc case or even as desktop case. used 10 of these around my office and 2 at home for the kids media pcs on there tvs.
great build quality that you see from more expensive cases. No sharp edges or hard to get to places. Easily removal bay to get to full Motherboard Layout.
Very impressed with these cases.
