IMHO this case is simply too flasy for a living room htpc. Most users would like something sleek and symmetrical, so that it does not draw attention to itself. but thats just my 2 cents

:EDIT: If you plan to lay the case on its side, you may need to shell out more for optical drives, because not all optical drives support being sideways!

ALWAYS compare prices after shipping, not before. Lot's of companies lowball an item's price for Pricewatch.com and make up the difference elsewhere.

Tiger Direct quoted me $13 S&H... + $35 = $48. Shipping may vary though.

http://www.chiefvalue.com/app/productdetails.asp?submit=property&item=11-145-004
$33 + $10 S&H = $43

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=11-145-004&depa=1
$36.50 + $8 S&H = $44.50

And that case brings one word to mind when I see it...
EEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Actually, the optical drive is on the left side of the case... the top openings are 3.5" drive bays. The optical drive would be horizontal ONLY if it were on it's side.

I should say that my comment on the looks relate to it's use in the living room. Doesn't fit.

    man that case is ugly....

    if u want a htpc..check out the Shuttle or MSI Mega series HTPC's....look much nicer than that...has LED screen or LCD screen on the front

    the only thing this one has that the MSI over shuttle dont is space inside...allowing lower running temperatures and more PCI slots

    jajaja, you guys kill me...looks like we have a lot of living room designers

    well i'm going with this case, its the only case that i found under 50, where you can place it side ways, i might add legs to fit it for more air flow.

    i was going to get a silverstone, but i think i should save some money by buying this case.

    case: check
    tv turner: check (coming this thursday)
