Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great case and well put together and so quiet. Looks amazing and fits in perfectly with my living room.
Bad points:
Needs more room for hard drives and why oh why is the fan power connector a old design not the new type.

Stuart, Cornwall

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very well made, heavy weight construction. Everything fits perfectly & screws together without fuss - right down to the tiny screws for the slimline ODD. Oozes quality & good attention to detail - things like the front flap is damped so it opens slowly and the blue LED in the power button is subtle, not "in your face" bright. Included fans (2x120mm) are excellent quality with three speed settings controlled via a single external switch. HDD mounting is a little odd-ball but works well enough with rubber mounts to eliminate vibration transfer to the chassis. A nice touch is that the case has screw holes that allow the PSU to be mounted either way up - i.e. fan pointing inside or outside. This was particularly useful for me as the OCZ PSU I chose had a short 4 pin CPU power lead which wouldn't have reached if I'd not been able to flip the PSU over.
Bad points:
If you want to use an ODD, you can only fit a slimline DVD / BlueRay drive so choice is limited. A small gripe that doesn't detract from the overall score...

Milo,

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
looks nice and is structurally well built
Bad points:
this is an HTPC case and is therefore quite large compared to alternatives. I have four 3.5" disks and one SSD boot drive. With all 5 drives its a bit of a mess and there's very little room for cable management. If I put in discreet graphics it'd probably be a nightmare! Also, beware of HSF clearance - my existing HSF didn't quite fit so I had to replace it.
