Rated 5 out of 5 by atlas Beautiful and solidly built
Bought this for a computer to sit beneath the TV, looks brilliant. Nearly made the mistake of buying the GD05, which is the same but without the hidden DVD drive, which would really spoil the looks of the thing. Has nice touches like a subtle blue power light - the one on my old media PC was so glaring in a dark room when watching a film I had to disconnect it.
Only a couple of things I could fault with it. The design means accessing the motherboard means unscrewing and removing pretty much everything, though not much you can do about this in such a compact case. Quick release fixings would help though. If you want to fit an after-market CPU cooler you'll need to find a low profile one as space is very tight. The one thing that was poorly thought out I thought was the USB 3 connection to the mobo from the the front of the case. Its a very large connector that you have to bend slightly to fit under the DVD drive. I assume when this was originally designed it was with a much smalled USB 2 connection in mind. Shame they didn't use a right angled one instead. Still, it does squeeze in, just.
Overall though, excellent product.
