Gigabyte Essence Desktop Case Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of Gigabyte's Essence mini-ITX case. Designed for entry-level mini-ITX desktops that can be fan-less, the Essence measures 300 mm x 234 mm x 74 mm; and is made of SECC steel and plastic. Its design involves a main cubicle inclined onto a stand, which encloses its power supply. A 120W external power brick supplies 12V, which it then gives out as various ATX standard power connectors. The case can hold a full-height mini-ITX motherboard, and a 2.5-inch drive. The case is beginning to sell in Japan, priced at the equivalent of $130. The source doesn't expect it to be priced above $100 in western markets.

This is actually pretty nice, but why tilted?

USB ports are in the wrong place. the chassis might block some larger thumbdrives. other than that the case is really good.

USB wont be blocked. As they are angled on base the frame is angled.
Overall great design so far.
