    Silverstone cases are over rated. I have one for HTPC and it was $300 without power supply. There is really nothing special about it, but there isnt much competition in the segment.

    Note to SilverStone: If I wanted a huge desktop case for an HTPC, I could buy one for a lot less than 190 Euros.... :shadedshu

    Nothing wrong with a little mid tower. Hide it behind something if it bothers you that much

    Really, to me, the majority of the HTPC cases look old school desktop.
