I would like to thank Origen AE for being so kind to supply the review sample.
About Origen AEOrigen AE was established in the year 2001. You may think to yourself, why you have not heard from the brand before recently. Turns out that the company was named Uneed International and was re-branded to the much nicer name of Origen AE Technology in 2005.
The new company entered the market with a bang. When the first images of the S21T surfaced on the interweb everyone was asking "wow, who is this?" and their booth at CeBIT 2007 was a huge hit. All of their cases were shown off and additional ones are still being developed. Origen AE exclusively manufactures HTPC enclosures, so you are bound to find one for your needs, which does not only look great but features a build quality beyond comparison.
Origen AE S10V
The S10V is the company's most compact HTPC case. It is available in two colors, black or silver. Origen AE was so kind and sent us the silver variant this time around.
