This case is a well designed one - I have fitted it with mini ITX motherboard + CPU with it's cooler, a 3.5' HDD, DVD-ROM and a 2.5' SSD (last one using an adapter). On top of that there is space for a PCMCI card. Wires can be packed under two front bays.

Minor unpleasant points:
1) it will NOT fit a 3.5' HDD into a front bay, so regular size HDD will have to go into an internal vertical bay (technically it fits, but there is not enough space between HDD and CPU's cooler to connect SATA cables)
2) after fixing HDD into internal 3.5' bay, the drive was NOT rigidly fixed, and I had to place a piece of draft excluding tape (P profile) on the bottom path of the bay to achieve steady state
3) only two SATA power connectors: had to order an adapter (LP4 Molex to SATA) for my DVD-ROM
4) Europe power plug! (no comments)

Overall, I really like it

This is a nice little case. Generally well made (for the price) and well laid out but....
For most buyers it will be fine, so long as they stick to an Atom based (or similar low power CPU) motherboard.
Big problems may well occur if you choose an AM3 or 1156 socket based board as the CPU+heatsink stack may well not fit under the power supply.ou've only got about 40mm between socket and PSU which is much less than many heatsinks, even low profile ones like the Shuriken range.

Like:
Solidly built. Reasonably well laid out. Nice integrated PSU of decent output.

But...
PSU fan louder than I expected. I have the Asus mobo and an i5. The clearance between the CPU cooler and the bottom of the PSU is less than a millimetre. When installing the mobo, you'd have to install the CPU and cooler first, then put the board into the case, then do the memory.

Not regretting my choice, and would recommend the case.

This fancy case is very small inside, there is not much space to work with cables or so... Strange layout for HDD and DVD rom, and more less there is no gap between CPU fan and PSU. The distance from motherboard surface to the power supply is around 55 mm only! So any bigger CPU fan and you are stuck...
Major problem in this case is that noisy/loud fan inside power supply... Its louder than Corsair HX550 in my gaming PC! As this case should be mostly as HTPC - its just annoying. Why there is not some proper silent fan or even passive cooler-i dont know... its 220W feeding Atom+Ion ... for g0ds4k3!
Tiny cover material is nothing extra too-but im not surprise now as I got model Soprano from Thermaltake too...
Btw: there is one position for full profile/size card in PCIex slot miniITX mobo (170mm x 170mm) - if VGA, then with basic VGA cooler only - if any...
Next time i will look for some other brand, because for 66,- euro its just average product. In my opinion - of course ;-)

Came as expected. Not a bad case for a HTPC or small desktop. Both of which I am using it for.

The negatives are the wrong plug for the UK and the front panel USBs are up-side-down. Also, I could have gone for a slightly quieter powwer unit. Though that said it is quiet and only the power fan makes a light hum.

I put in an Asus Atom 330 AT3IONT-I S/V/L/ mini ITX Board(not the delux version), Kingston ValueRAM KVR1066D3N7K2/4G PC3-8500 Memory 4 GB (Non ECC, 1066 MHz, CL7, 240-pin, 2 x 2 GB) DDR3-SDRAM Kit and a Corsair Force 60 GB Solid State Drive. I also had an old 320 GB SATA 3.5 inch drive which I chucked in along with a PCI Express DVB-T and Analog TV Tuner card.

I installed windows 7 home 64 bit. on the SSD before installing the PCI express card and 320 Gb SATA HHD. It was surprisingly fast and still is.

With everything else installed along with Open Office and The GIMP graphic/Photo software. it gets a 3.3 Windows experience score. Only 3.25 gb of ram is used. Dont ask me why. That said asus say only install 3 gig of ram! ?

It flies along and is faster than my old shuttle with 2 gigs of ram and 2.4 gig cpu. It starts up fast and has potential to over-clock the cpu. over all very good.

This and Asus C8HM70-I/HDMI Motherboard and SODIM ram from an old laptop. Easy home server to stream media and backup. Sits in the study with powerline ethernet and is pretty quiet.

This is an ideal little case for a HTPC. It is quiet - the one I got had a virtually silent PSU fan - and looks good enough to sit below your TV.

For my usage I use a Sapphire PURE White E350 (IPC-E350M1W) motherboard with a Crucial SSD and 6GB of RAM with OpenElec media centre software (based on XBMC and very easy to install). The motherboard was easy to install once I had taken the PSU out and there is a reasonable distance betweeen the CPU and PSU with this board. Unfortunately there is not really any good place to install the SSD but since it has no mechanical parts I decided to simply tape it to the base. Not ideal but by no means is it a show stopper and the specification never said it took a 2.5" drive anyway.

The downsides to me are oddly the length as it is longer than I imagined (my mistake for not reading specifications properly) and it comes with the European power cable not a UK 3 pin one. Amazon really need to sort this though as there is no excuse for a UK based supplier to supply European power cables to UK customers.
